Putting some Wow into WCP
Prochem Europe wowed professionals from both vertical and horizontal cleaning sectors at the annual Window Cleaning Page (WCP) Cleaning Show this year.
The company exhibited as part of the National Carpet Cleaners Association membership following the phenomenal success of the 2017 event, making this joint venture a must for everyone working in carpet and window cleaning, and related enterprises.
Prochem Europe was in attendance at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, fielding a large array of chemicals and machinery with demonstrations of the Galaxy extractor, the larger Steempro and the top of the tree, 500psi-powered Endeavor, all drawing the crowds.
Says Prochem sales manager, Phil Jones: "A great show, this one, with visitors including a large number of new starters to carpet cleaning, which is always promising for a company like ours, blending training with technological innovation.
"Many of these visitors were interested in seeing the Galaxy, an ideal starter machine and a few had been informed of the show by their local suppliers and opted to come and see Prochem for more information."
Prochem also displayed and demonstrated a couple of new products to its range, notably a Teflon wand glide which attaches to any 12in. head and makes 'wanding' so much smoother. Relates Phil: "One contractor wrote it off as a gimmick but when he tested it, just turned his head with a big beaming smile and went 'Wow!'"
Also displayed and getting a lot of attention was the LW38 Vac/sweeper, a twin, contra-rotating brush machine, ideal for brushing in pre-sprays, as well as being used for dry compound cleaning, in the form of Fiberdri.
"Even though it was only displayed for trials and for feedback, not being a stock item as yet, orders were taken, so watch this space," says Phil.
Prochem also ran a small stain removal demonstration area, where visitors were shown the correct way to remove coffee and red wine stains via a range of varied removal methods.
Phil relates: "Some visitors had a go themselves, which led to some fun. Prochem Red Rx proved popular for removing red food/drink colourings and was the demo most requested.
"Overall, the show was a great day out for both visitors and stand staff with new contacts being made and old friends re-connected. The event was very well attended with the footfall of visitors up on last year's show."
