Pittards, a 200-year-old manufacturer of leather products, makes sports footwear for such famous brands as Adidas, New Balance, and Puma.
Recently, the company was having a problem maintaining its worker changing rooms. Over the years, the rooms had become badly soiled?not uncommon in leather-production and leather-processing factories.
Although maintenance workers tried various cleaning methods, nothing seemed to tackle the job and the problem was causing increasing concern among company officials.
Then the firm hired a new cleaning contractor that promised to clean the changing rooms and keep them healthy and sanitary?without even touching them.
How? By using the Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning? system.
The Kaivac system combines an indoor pressure washer, chemical injection, and wet-vacuum technology all in one machine.
The machine effectively and hygienically cleans surfaces by spraying cleaning solutions onto them, rinsing the same areas?essentially blasting away grime?and using its built-in vacuum to completely remove soils and contaminants. And the system works without workers ever having to touch contaminated surfaces.
According to the cleaning contractor, "[Everyone was] impressed with the performance of the Kaivac system. It's fast, provides great results, [and is] less strenuous for our cleaning staff. What's more, Pittards [says] the results exceeded their expectations."
