The future of Office Cleaning?

In Business by admin0 Comments

The world in which we live in today is inundated with technology. All businesses big or small use some form of technology in their day to day running. However could this technology be expanding to the office cleaning industry? New York based company ‘Managed by Q’ have introduced an iPad based ‘smart office cleaning and management platform’. The iPad invites clients to request an on demand cleaning service, maintenance requests and restocking of office supplies. The companies who opt into this scheme are presented with a wall mounted iPad that acts as a central communication device for all available services. Currently being trialled in Chicago, America and if successful we could this cleaning technology wing its way across the water to the UK very soon.

In Business, Cleaning News, Janitorial Supplies by alan0 Comments

A new survey has revealed the cost of buying janitorial supplies in the hospitality sector for the first time. The research - carried out by the 'Professional' label of Proctor & Gamble cleaning products - has revealed professional customers spend £124.45 each month on cleaning products, when preparing to clean hotel rooms, pubs and more. Owners of B&B's and Tea Rooms up and down the country are finding themselves in a tough situation when it comes to buying cleaning products;  buy cheap and buy twice as much  - or buy pricey and trust it to get the job done in one. Of course, teaming up with Total Clean would ensure that the job is always done right the first time - and we bring our own cleaning supplies! P&G Professional Survey shows cleaning smart   P&G Professional's Jayne Clark said: "At P&G Professional, we understand that busy operators need trusted cleaning products which are simple to use, deliver significant cleaning mileage and provide value-for-money with every dose. Flash All Purpose Cleaner, which is part of the Flash Professional range of cleaning solutions, not only has great cleaning power but delivers on multiple fronts including shine, freshness, scent, degreasing and dust removal. Combine these benefits with the simplicity, efficiency and trustworthiness of a well-known brand and you have a winning solution for busy operators."

CO2 Balance – October Update

In Business, Environment, Office Cleaning by admin0 Comments

[two_third] As a vital part of our Environmental policies and procedures, CO2balance is retained by total Clean to audit, report then offset the Group's determined carbon footprint in incredibly well-deserving projects across the World. This post brings you the latest summary update from the Managing Director at CO2 Balance, Mark Simpson and reports on relevant current events and positive actions resulting from ongoing projects.  

 Mark Simpson, Managing Director, CO2balance UK Ltd

Welcome to our October newsletter that follows hot on the heels of the UN Climate Summit held in New York last week. For the first time, we can reflect on some positive action from the world leaders who attended international talks on how to tackle climate change. Both the US and China made specific reference to recently experienced extreme weather events that are forming the growing body of evidence that our climate is changing. The economic impact of these extreme weather events was underlined and - in what constitutes a bold move at these events - China made reference to their man made emissions 'peaking as soon as possible'. Despite the reluctance of countries to blink first when it comes to making a commitment, the run up to summit saw over 1000 companies sign a World Bank Initiative to encourage governments to set a price on carbon, which would act as an economic incentive to reduce greenhouse emissions. Business, it seems, has a valuable role to play in driving action to curb climate change where governments fear to tread. We have had a busy summer at CO2balance in which we have continued to develop exciting new climate change mitigation projects under our microprogramme that spans the African continent.
"This past month we have seen our first ever projects in Cameroon (West Cameroon Cookstoves) and Sierra Leone (Bombali Safe Water) formally recognised by the Gold Standard. We have established 4 new safe water projects in Malawi, 4 in Bangladesh and 5 in Rwanda; we have also brought online 7 new cookstoves projects in Rwanda, 2 in Kenya (with partner World Vision) and 1 in Mozambique (with partner Cloros)."
In terms of action on the ground, we have completed the roll out of 900 artisanal improved cookstoves as a microenterprise operated by the Umeme Women's group in West Kisumu, and have just built our 9,000th stove in our Rwanda programme! Our new safe water project roll out in Eastern Region, Uganda is now complete and over 8,000 people are now drinking clean water as a result of our work. I hope you enjoyed this month's summary update, look out for more news in the coming months.

A brand new look, the same commitment to service…

In Business by admin0 Comments

Over the past 25 years, Total Clean has focused solely on its service ethic; ensuring that the very best attention is paid to its clients in London’s West End and City areas.

But recently, our ambition has widened - and so have our services!  We’ve been working really hard over the past few months on our exciting new rebrand and it’s finally happened.

Welcome to our new website, we hope you like it. After 25 years we thought it was about time we updated our logo and branding. We wanted something iconic, sharp - an image our customers will instantly recognise as Total Clean. We also wanted to keep something that harkened back to the old us; keeping something that our clients are familiar with and has become synonymous with Total Clean, hence retaining the feather icon introduced in ca. 2001 and our proud name, Total Clean.

Everything that we know our clients love about Total Clean is still here. We have improved our service offering to allow us to cater for the broader needs of our current and future clients. We have introduced Pest Control and PAT Testing for example – additional services that will benefit our clients, as we develop further into a single-solution provider of facilities-based services.

Have a look around our new site - it showcases some of our latest success stories, documents our extensive experience and gives information about how Total Clean can help you and your business. Let us know what you think - and pop back on a regular basis for more updates.

Labour Party Votes for Total Clean!

In Business by admin0 Comments

The final count is in and Total Clean has won the day! We know that our customers have options that's why we are always privileged when any prospective client makes the decision to use Total Clean's services.  When a world-renowned 'brand' like the Labour Party chooses to use us, we like to share that with you too. We were naturally very excited when the contact came in and, from this initial enquiry we were one of several companies invited to tender.  To use political parlance, our business development team went into overdrive as we took our prospectus to the good people of the Labour Party.  Although we were pleased to learn that we had been shortlisted to the final three candidates, this would not end with a coalition. Our presentation, as always, was centred on the requirements of the client and the very same aspects of the Total Clean service that have been key to its major growth and consistent client satisfaction ratings over its 25 years in business.  Total Clean was finally awarded the contract due to its competitive pricing, obsessive attention to detail and assurances of service excellence.  We're afraid that our competition will have to settle for the back benches for the time being!
