There is good and bad in everything in life and when it comes to cleaning products the same applies to bacteria!

Biological products should contain either good bacteria or enzymes or both, to eat away at the bad bacteria which release obnoxious odours, unpleasant for all around.

Our wonder product, Micro Clean, contains billions of specially selected good bacteria, which digest bad bacteria, eradicating odours and stains.

Even if the stain has dried and sometimes after other cleaners have been tried and failed, just dilute equal parts of Micro Clean with tepid (not hot) water and work the solution well into the soiled area.  Cover the damp, treated areas with a damp cloth, or sponge and leave it for about 4 hours.  Remove the cloth and allow the treated area to air dry naturally and voila – no smell, no stain, no problem!!

Whether the problem is caused by urine, dairy products, faeces, fruit juices, wine, cooking oil etc, providing Micro Clean solution has come into contact with the soiling, it will digest and remove it – permanently!  How good is that!

 

 

It has to be said that men’s toilets don’t have the best reputation, known for being unhygienic and smelly places.

You only have to walk past a gent’s toilet to turn your nose up at that all too well-known and offensive pong!

It is often as a result of ineffective cleaning fluids and cleaning practices and, we hate to say it, ‘poor aim’, that lead to this unpleasant smell.  

However, with just two effective and easy to use products, this odour can be banished for good and the reputation of unsanitary men’s toilets forgotten.

Bio P

Is an  easy-fit universal water-saving device for all urinals. Bio P conveniently fits into any urinal – even those that have been adapted to accept retro-fitting systems which have been removed, leaving an open hole.

The Bio P contains our well-proven biological block, which cleans and deodorises the urinal trap while also preventing the build-up of scale and solids.

By reducing the flushing frequency to three times within 24 hours, urinals are maintained in optimum condition and dramatic water savings enjoyed.

Use in conjunction with Blu Away to maintain an odour-free washroom environment (See below for more information).

CODE: BIO-P30. SIZE: Tubs of 25. Unit Price £95.00 (£3.80 per unit – lasts 30 days)

Blu Away

Specially formulated to clean and maintain odour-free washrooms.

Blu Away eradicates organic staining and odour problems from all washroom surfaces, including floors
and walls contaminated with urine.

Simply spray and wipe all ceramic surfaces to control scale and soiling.

Dilute and swab floors to clean and remove uric scale build-up and urine soiling.

CODE: BA750. SIZE: 750mls x 6. PRICE £22.80 (£3.80 each)

All of our customers that use these two products in conjunction with each other benefit from pleasant smelling gents toilets. Why not give your men’s toilets a pleasing smell?

 

It’s a well known fact that rubber has been a cause of skin problems for many years, with the most common problem being irritant contact dermatitis.

This irritation is caused by a maceration of the skin often associated with sweating under occlusion. 

One example of this is the wearing of protective rubber gloves, with the potential of progression to low grade eczema causing itchiness, redness and scaling.

The allergic reaction to the chemicals used to process rubber produces a skin problem similar to eczema known as Allergic Contact Dermatitis.

This type of reaction is seen less commonly than irritant contact dermatitis produces blistering and weeping as well as redness and itching. As it heals, it progresses to dryness and scaling.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis is caused by a immunological reaction which although not life-threatening, can be extremely itchy and uncomfortable.

The following four categories of people are most likely to be at risk of this skin problem:

  1. People predisposed to allergies

  2. Patients with hand eczema

  3. Workers in the rubber industry and health care industry

  4. Patients who have undergone multiple surgical operations or other invasive procedures

At Spectrum, we aim to reduce the risk of contracting this skin problem by offering alternatives to rubber latex gloves with our nitrile option.

Young, old, male, female, every year each and every one of us is plagued by the dreaded infections associated with this time of year. Yet with good hand hygiene you can help to prevent yourself and those around you from becoming infected. Here is a step by step guide for effective hand washing:

STEP 1.

Rub palm to palm for 10 to 15 seconds

STEP 2.

Right palm over the back of left palm, vice versa

STEP 3.

Rub palm to palm with fingers interlaced

STEP 4.

Backs of fingers to opposite palms with fingers interlocked

STEP 5.

Rub right thumb rotationally with left palm, vice versa

STEP 6.

Rotational rubbing of right fingertips to palm, vice versa

STEP 7.

We particularly recommend our GOJO products for thorough hand hygiene

Happy Hand Washing Day everyone!

 

As part of our Hygiene Management Scheme Support, we take a proactive role with our customers and like to inform them of information that we consider topical, current and relevant.

As I am sure you will know, The Food Standards Agency states that all businesses that handle food, need to use BS EN accredited cleaning products on food contact surfaces to reduce bacteria to safe levels.  We take a pride in recommending only fit for purpose product that help customers conform to any legislative requirements.

Currently, some Environmental Health Inspectors in York are focussing on cleaning and hand washing in their inspections and are looking for sanitisers with short contact times of around 30 seconds, due to E Coli 0157 and the Control of Cross Contamination.  Because of this, some clients have been down graded from Hygiene Rating 5 to 4.

We are currently writing to all our customers who use products requiring longer than a 30 second contact time and making them aware of this and offering  alternative suggestions. 

It would be a good idea to check your sanitiser contact times and take proactive action to safeguard top ratings.

Please ring us on 01723 373509 if you need any help at all.
