Major innovations in hygiene and cleanliness

General hygiene:

3M has made a speciality out of cleaning mats. Nomad Modular, its indoor-outdoor system is versatile and includes several styles: tiles that scrape and other tiles that scrape and absorb to keep dust and humidity outside the building by cleaning the bottoms of shoes and absorbing wetness. They clip together and single tiles may be replaced when they wear out. These mats, which may be personalised, are available in a wide array of colours. Among the most recent are ruby red for upscale hotels, red and night blue, while and the colour that’s the rave right now is coco. These mats meet requirements for persons with reduced mobility as well as M3 fire rating.With the takeover of Colgate Palmolive’s professional division, Werner & Mertz expanded its professional product line Tana from surface and floor cleaning to personal hygiene and from linens to food services. Thus the range Actisene covers a wide range of anti-bacterial products, ranging from disinfectant detergents to disinfection stations, and including monitoring tools and most recently launched Astisene SH Bio-nettoyant, a product that efficiently cleans , disinfects, kills fungus and viruses including the aviary flu virus. Johnson Diversey recently put on the market SoftCare Line, a new, more ergonomic and hygienic distributor for Dove soap. With the buyout of Cuno, 3M recently added to its catalogue filtration systems and barriers for limestone, chlorine taste and bacteria to be used at water outlets (coffee and ice machines).Floor and carpet maintenance: 3M offers two solutions for power floor sweepers, which are quieter than vacuum cleaners when hotels are sleeping. Another range sold by the distributor of the brand Post-It among others: Brush’n’Mop disks for fragile and uneven surfaces. In addition to this mechanical range, 3M adds a short range of carpet stain removers and protective Scotch Guard products. JohnsonDiversey proposes its Jontec and Taski ranges for floor care and the specialist recently put its automatic scrubber drier Taski Swingo 450 on the market. The firm also proposes Tapi Shampoo, a carpet shampoo adapted to all shampooing methods and Tapi Extract which deep cleans rugs and carpets without damaging fibres. These two products benefit from ONT (Odour Neutralising Technology) so they leave behind a fresh and pleasant fragrance. Also in this area is Dynatech Shampoo from Tana Professional. In addition to fabric- covered floors, the German specialist has created a Dynatech product for every floor: soft, hard and parquets. Toujours dans ce domaine, Dynatech Shampoo de Tana Professional. In addition to textile floor coverings, the German specialist’s Dynatech range also includes soft and hard floor coverings, and parquets with a product especially designed for laminate flooring: Dynatech Towood.Surface maintenance: 3M has made a specialty out of cleaning sponges thanks to one of is references on the market: Scotch Brite. Among the colour coded sponge innovations (white, blue, green, black from least abrasive to most aggressive) is the Scotch Brite Easy Erasing Pad. This technology is made of melamine foam and may be used to clean finger and scuff marks on window frames, door knobs, handles... Other recent derivatives: Scotch Brite 2010 which removes dust without scratching surfaces; Scotch Brite 2000 for Inox and fragile surfaces such as ceramic cook tops. 3M also offers treated wipes for toilets, disinfecting electronic devices... Tana Professional’s portfolio also includes products for damp and dry surfaces in the Clic range: Clic Spray for showers; Clic Surface or mirrors, windows, tables or Clic Sane to deodorize. JohnsonDiversey counts on Suma and Jonmatic to satisfy hoteliers’ needs in terms of hygiene in the kitchen as well as for dishes.Laundry Hygiene: Tana Professional’s Program Matic liquid systems offer a personalised solution depending on each property’s needs and expectations regarding performance and the washing equipment being used. They automatically manage the distribution of washing pro ducts by associating optimisation of dosing with comfort of use. This makes it possible to guarantee excellent washing results while dosing the right quantity of a product and minimizing wear and tear on laundry and the amount of waste disposed of in our environment. Ecological, the Clax Plus- Bright System washing system by Johnson Diversey makes it possible to treat all textiles even at low temperatures using just two products: Clax Plus’s enzymatic system and the stain removal and oxygenated whitening agent Clax Bright. This system makes it possible to reduce wear and tear on laundry while achieving a triple gain. Energy (35%), water (30%) and time (22%). Moreover, the concentrated softener Clax DeoSoft Conc is ideal for eliminating bad odours. This is an important aspect since hygiene is perceived first and foremost by the sense of smell for one in three clients.Dishes:With its 3 kg case, the Dify concept from JohnsonDiversey allows up to 600 dishwasher washing and rinsing cycles. The 40 water-soluble sachets contain powder and tablets that assure both washing and rinsing. The associated captor J Watcher, located in the washtub, indicates just when it is necessary to add a new dose. Werner & Mertz sells its VSL range, including the only automatic renovation product on the market VSL Rénova cartouche, by catalogue.Floor protection: 3M has made a speciality out of cleaning mats.
