Bag the best with SEBO

12 Dec 2016 11:37:17

A recent survey by SEBO shows that 83% of us change our vacuum bags monthly; while 4% change them weekly.* Make sure you are getting the best from your SEBO vacuum cleaner though by using SEBO’s own bags; don’t go for copycat imitations. SEBO bags fit perfectly with no hassle or mess. They are specially designed to maximise the performance, longevity and reliability of your machine; and your guarantee is not valid if you use others. SEBO bags use the latest technology, multi-layer, micro-fibre construction which harnesses electro-static attraction to combine high filtration and fade-free performance. The high filtration design enables longer life for filters, preventing fine dust and other contaminants from entering the machine and causing unseen damage to bearings and other components. An integrated sealing lid makes SEBO bags more hygienic to handle and, most importantly, they are the correct size for the machine. And on the same subject, don’t be tempted by bagless machines; the dust and waste is not enclosed and will fly everywhere when you are trying to empty it – not great for allergy sufferers or the floor! SEBO offers a choice of upright and cylinder vacuums so there is a design for all floor types. They are backed by a five-year parts and labour guarantee.

There's more to being environmentally aware than just looking at energy consumption of products. A true friend of the environment will ensure a new vacuum cleaner is responsibly manufactured too. This is the message for retailers from SEBO, a pioneer in this responsible manufacturing. The consumer knows to look for efficiency when it comes to buying new appliances for the home but SEBO has discovered that few look at the amount of energy consumed in their production and distribution. Sometimes this can far outweigh the energy used during the entire lifespan of a product. According to research by the Commission on Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), WWF, and Halifax, 87% of consumers would like their home to be more environmentally friendly. To achieve this, we, the manufacturers, need to consider the environmental impact of the products we buy right from their very inception, not just once they enter our homes. Manufactured in Germany, using locally-sourced materials and components (which already ensures a smaller carbon footprint than products imported from the Far East), every SEBO vacuum cleaner is made to last. This not only reduces waste and uses less resources, it saves the customer money. The company ensures that every single element of a vacuum’s construction makes minimal impact on the environment. Not only is plastic recycled into new components, but the factory is completely self-sustaining with regards to electricity and even makes contributions to the national grid when supply exceeds demand. A combined heat and power system recovers virtually 100% of its primary energy source; as well as producing the electricity required to run machinery, the warm air created by its generator is used to heat the warehouse while engine coolant is pumped through the office radiators. Water resources are also conserved at the SEBO factory. Rain water (aka brown water) is collected from the roof, then filtered and stored to be used in production and within the factory washrooms, saving the unnecessary use of treated drinking water. The factory and offices are designed to use natural light as much as possible, avoiding artificial lighting and the associated power consumption and working hours are scheduled to make use of daylight hours. This also creates a much better working environment. SEBO has a highly skilled and dedicated workforce and the management of SEBO is very aware of social responsibility and the huge contribution the commitment and health of their staff make to the quality of SEBO products. For SEBO, reducing the carbon footprint of a product starts in the initial design process. Part of the design brief is to ensure that they will pack into the smallest possible cartons and that the carton sizes ensure that the maximum number of machines will fit onto a pallet. Most packaging is made from unbleached recycled cardboard with waste paper from the offices being shredded and re-used for packing. Even deliveries are carefully planned to ensure lorries are filled to their maximum capacity and are running as economically as possible. “SEBO is at the very forefront of environmental technology and we are making continuous improvements to ensure we stay that way. Anyone who owns a SEBO vacuum can rest assured that it has been produced and delivered in the most environmentally responsible way possible and that it is built to last,” says Justin Binks, director of SEBO (UK) Ltd.

As any good retailer will know, looking after the long term interests of customers and the products they have bought can reap huge ongoing benefits, not only by reducing the number of call-backs and complaints but by building customer satisfaction and gaining repeat sales. In the case of carpets and other flooring, providing advice on care is an important part of the sales process and should include guidance on which vacuum cleaner is best suited to the floor covering that has been purchased. Matching a floor with the right vacuum cleaner is not something to leave to chance. The vast range of flooring types available means that it is vital that the customer is given sufficient information to choose the most appropriate maintenance regime and vacuum cleaner. A carefully selected, good quality, high performance machine of the right type will, without doubt, help ensure a floor not only looks good but lasts. An example of the kind of problem that can occur if the wrong machine is used is fluffing of a wool loop pile carpet forming a fuzzy surface, a process known as pilling. Much more common is damage caused by inefficient machines that fail to clean properly, leaving grit and dirt behind. This trapped debris cuts the fibres and damages the integrity of the pile as the carpet is walked on, shortening its life. Added to this is the visual downside of a dirty carpet. When correctly matched with the floor covering, a good machine will clean quickly and thoroughly without harming the floor surface. SEBO works closely with carpet manufactures and rigorously test carpets on their behalf to establish which machines work best on each type of floor covering. The sales team visits retailers to discuss specific issues and provide training. If a previously untried carpet is being used it will be tested so the correct cleaning solution can be developed. The range of vacuum cleaners available on the market is vast but principally split into upright and cylinder models. Generally, with cut pile carpet, upright machines with a rotating brush are effective. Cylinders usually rely on suction alone to clean so are normally better for delicate surfaces and hard floors. Where a mixture of carpets and hard floors need to be cleaned, an upright machine designed to do both, is a good solution. Alternatively, a cylinder machine with the option of a power head or turbo brush may be right. For the retailer, there is the opportunity to sell appropriate vacuum cleaners, or provide added value with the cost of the machine built into the price of the carpet. Indeed, this is potentially a win-win situation with both an additional sale and a happy customer who has been helped to care for their flooring.

Polishing up for a shinier floor

1 Dec 2016 10:53:47

There are many vacuum cleaners that can perform maintenance and cleaning. Those with a speed of up to 200 rpm perform a scrubbing task, and those between 200 and 400 rpm both scrub and polish. These models are full head-weight machines, meaning that the weight lies directly on the cleaning pad. The main disadvantage of these options, however, is the need for operative training. The ultra high-speed (UHS) models operate from 500 rpm upwards and these differ in design, being wheels-down in operation with the weight on the wheels. Ranging in size from 11 to 21 inches, these machines require no operative training. The colour of the cleaning pad is the key to the performance levels – the darker the pad, the more aggressive the cleaning power. The question of which polish to use is subjective and every manufacturer of cleaning chemicals has its own version of floor maintenance products, or floor maintainers. These range in price and quality and can be used in a variety of different ways to achieve the desired effect. Some can be used in neat form to form a seal on the floor, requiring mechanical action to harden the product. A good rule of thumb is that the more mechanical action, the better and harder the seal! Floor maintainers used in diluted form are best for maintaining the floor with the product used as a detergent to clean first then buff up using a machine. There is also the spray clean option, suitable for cleaner floors. For a shinier floor, maintainers with a higher level of solids are the most effective although these tend to be more expensive. Combining a high solids maintainer with a high speed machine will bring about a maximum gloss effect. However, SEBO uses the polisher with an HTC diamond pad that requires no product to product a shine. It is worth noting that all machines from 400 rpm upwards can be vacuumated and there are two types of vacuum – passive dust collection systems, where the draught caused by the spinning pad directs dust into a collection bag; and positive dust collection systems where the vacuum motor sucks up the dust. The latter is generally regarded as more effective. All UHS machines should have a skirt to seal the machines to the floor to prevent excess dust. It is important to remember that different floors have different needs – for instance, a polisher should not be used on a safety floor as they are abrasive by nature and tend to be detrimental to polisher pads. Specialist pads are made to clean these floors but are only used at slow scrubbing speed (200rpm) and a shine is not really possible with most. Floors that are suitable for cleaning and maintenance with machines and floor maintenance products include sealed wood, thermoplastics, linoleum, non-porous and sealed stones, tiles, sealed concrete and painted floors. SEBO has its own ultra-high speed cleaner, designed for smaller, high quality areas that require cleaning and maintenance, such as nursing homes, offices lobbies, hotels and shops. The 2000 rpm SEBO Dart with UHS, both vacuums and polishes providing a brilliant gloss surface and, when used with an appropriate floor maintainer, will create a protective coating for the floor. The model is small, just 12 inches across and in keeping with the trademark of SEBO, it is incredibly lightweight, complying with all health and safety and handling legislation. Floor cleaning and maintenance can be straightforward and cost effective when the correct equipment and materials are used together and can help to extend the life of a floor through initial careful specification.
