Rubbermaid demonstrates benefits of its Hygen Clean Water System
Rubbermaid used the recent CMS show in Berlin to demonstrate the attributes of its new Hygen Clean Water System, which consists of a filter bucket & wringer and eight specially engineered double-sided microfibre mops and is designed to improve productivity and reduce water consumption and chemical usage. This system, launched in Geneva in June and one which has just won an ISSA/Interclean Innovation Award, generates cleaner water, cleaner mops and cleaner floors.
"It's perfect for use in offices and institutional buildings, hotels, restaurants and catering outlets, retail premises, healthcare sites and many other locations with daily cleaning regimes," explained Product Manager Sophie Mathey-Debeaumont as she showed how easy it is to operate.
"The integrated filter generates cleaner water, thus improving productivity and reducing chemical/water waste and built-in agitators remove 25% more dirt than a normal mopping system will. The twin roller design improves wringing efficiency and there are four adjustable settings so that optimum mop dampness can be achieved for the job in hand.
"It is quick and simple to attach and detach to mops, the back-flushable filter is easy to use and there is a floor drain for easy and fast emptying.
"The system comes with eight double-sided mops for a wide variety of floor types and cleaning tasks and the double-sided design covers 45 m2 with one wring. The mops offer brilliant cost-in-use benefits as they can be laundered up to 1000 times without loss of performance."
To coincide with the launch of the system, RCP announced that it will support WaterAid (www.wateraid.org), the international non-governmental organisation which uses practical and sustainable solutions to improve access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation for some of the world's poorest communities. RCP will donate a minimum of 1% of the value of sales of the Hygen Clean Water System to WaterAid for a period of not less than three years.
