I guess you wonder why the linens and towels that we use in hotels, resorts, hospitals, etc. smell good and look crispy; it's because these establishments use professional laundry services. They use machines that are heavy duty and can accommodate huge amount of laundry. They also use cleaning agents that can surely kill and eliminate bacteria, fungi, and viruses. I just recently learned that the temperature of the water should also be taken into consideration when we do the laundry so that the unwanted dirt and microorganisms will be removed from the fabric to ensure us of fresh and clean environment in the hospitality and health industries.
However, one of the things that is not taken into consideration when maintaining a clean environment is the mop or rag that we use to clean floors and other surfaces. We do not think that we can pass the dirt and unwanted microorganisms from one place to another. When I realized this, it made me rethink my cleaning habits at home.
Having a clean environment is crucial in companies especially in hospitality, health, manufacturing, and tourism sectors. We can easily pass an illness because of poor cleaning habits. That is why it is a challenge for these industries to improve their maintenance works.
ELS Clean Tech Concept Corporation (ELS-CTCC), a local company based in Cainta, Rizal, is offering a cleaning system for industries to ensure a clean and healthy environment for everybody. ELS-CTCC is a product of two leading multinational companies in the cleaning industry--Electrolux, the forefront in advance and professional laundry cleaning and AVET AG, manufacturer of high-end microfiber mops infused with chemicals. ELS-CTCC has thought of leasing a cleaning system to companies in the Philippines to ensure high standards of hygiene and sanitation.
The mop-cleaning system offered by ELS-CTCC ensures their clients that there will be no switching of mops from one company to another as each mop is equipped with RFID tags. The washing system will not activate should there be a mix of a mop from another section of the building in the washing machine. Each mop has a life cycle of 750 washes and can accumulate a maximum of 3 kilos of dirt before it can be washed. Ideally, one mop can clean a floor area of 80sqm.
