Duplex advocate, Tracey Kirkland who is Head Housekeeper of a large care home in Surrey commented recently: - I work in a large care home where in recent years we introduced the Duplex machine to our range of cleaning appliances. We found the Duplex machine to be very user friendly and light enough to be suitable for all users. The cleaning power of the machine is incredible.
The Duplex is not only easy to manoeuvre around but very quiet compared to the other cleaning machines I use. Also, there are no nasty chemicals used – it works by steaming – which is environmentally friendly, a very important factor with our residents in mind.
You have only to watch the machine work to see how powerful it is on hard floor surfaces, it is amazing and I have used many machines but none clean and sanitize like the Duplex. The surface of the cleaned area is dry almost immediately which reduces the risk of slips and falls immensely. Not only does the Duplex clean hard floors, it also cleans carpets of urine, faeces and other spillages common in a care home but again leaves the carpet with very little drying time required which is an asset in this environment.
The new stylish EnviroStep pedal bin from Leafield Environmental is rapidly becoming a favourite for the collection of food waste.
Slim enough to stand back against the wall in corridors and open offices, yet with a 90-litre capacity, the durable, rotationally moulded EnviroStep stands some 970mm high, ideal for ergonomic efficiency. The bin sports front castors and an integral handle, overcoming the problem of carrying full, vulnerable and potentially heavy sacks to collection points.
With a single aperture and pedal operated lid, the Envirostep Single is ideal for collecting heavy waste such as food or paper but is equally suitable for collecting general waste or mixed recyclate. The Envirostep bin comes with WRAP compliant colouring and labelling as standard, although personalisation options are available.
