Greenspeed PROBIO Cleaning Products

Greenspeed has developed a range of probiotic cleaning agents, which ensure optimal, sustainable cleaning.

The Probio range has been awarded both the EU Ecolabel, and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

How it works

  • When cleaning with Probio, a layer of probiotics (friendly bacteria) is left behind on the surface.
  • These friendly bacteria remove organic contamination, which otherwise gives rise to the formation of odours.
  • The friendly bacteria, produce enzymes, these enzymes break down the microscopic dirt into tiny particles.
  • They are able to absorb the tiny particles and digest them as food, and continue to function for days after cleaning.
  • The results: a microscopic deep clean and long-lasting absorption of odours.

Greenspeed Probio is the first range of probiotic cleaning products worldwide to obtain certificates for both the EU Ecolabel and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

Infection Control Guidance

A UK-wide public information campaign has been launched to advise the public on how to slow the spread of coronavirus and reduce the impact on NHS services.

The government-funded campaign will include public health advice on how people can protect themselves from infection.

Similar to the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign used for flu and norovirus, it will promote important hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

An effective infection control programme can reduce the transference of infectious diseases, caused by micro-organisms, which can be spread in various ways, including direct or indirect human contact.

Regular or frequent disinfection of high touch surfaces will reduce the number of micro-organisms on these surfaces and help to prevent their spread.

“Basic hygiene such as washing our hands regularly and using tissues when we cough and sneeze can play an important role in minimising the spread of viruses like this.”

Loowy – The Toilet Brush Reinvented

Loowy is a new, revolutionary way to clean toilets, replacing the old fashioned and dirty toilet brush with a silicone, antibacterial and water repellent waveform blade for cleanliness right up to the edge.

It’s also quick-drying, easy rinse and durable.

By staying clean and clog-free, it lasts far longer than a conventional toilet brush – saving money and reducing plastic waste.

The Revolutionary i-mop

Meet the i-mop – a full size scrubber dryer deck with the flexibility of a flat mop.

The first of its kind, the i-mop solves the problems of floor cleaning systems by combining the flexibility of a floor mop with the power and speed of industrial scrubber driers.

Most floors are still being cleaned by mop and bucket, because other floor machines are just not flexible enough to work in most spaces.

The i-mop makes it possible to clean any surface, with freedom of movement and great ease of use.

No borders or boundaries, this machine isn’t just designed for cleaning, it is designed for the cleaner.

Single Use Towels Are The Most Hygienic!

Single-use towels offer the most hygienic way to reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses when drying hands in the washroom.

New independent research has found that single-use paper towels are the most effective way to dry one’s hands in the washroom and reduce the risk of the transmission of viruses.

The study indicates that they help minimise the spread of viruses including ones associated with various diseases, including those causing gastro-intestinal infections such as Norovirus and Rotavirus.

Single-use towels disperse fewer microorganisms into the environment than jet air dryers and warm air dryers and also help reduce the risk that viruses are blown into the faces of small children accompanying adults in the washroom.

The findings have serious implications for washroom facility managers in settings such as hospitals and restaurants where hygiene is paramount.

Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP)

2015 CLP LABELFrom 1st June 2015 all products will be labelled under the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

It is implemented in the EU via the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP), where previously chemical products were regulated in the UK under CHIP.

New red diamond shaped Hazard Pictograms will replace the orange square Hazard Symbols, though some of the internal images are similar.

The presence of a new Hazard Pictogram on a label does not necessarily signify a change in the formulation, and could just be a consequence of compliance with the new classification system

As before, a system of calculations and thresholds is used to classify products. However, some of the threshold levels under CLP are lower than under CHIP.

For example under the CHIP system a product would need to contain more than 20% of an ingredient classified as R36 (Irritating to eyes) to trigger an ‘Irritant’ hazard symbol but under CLP this is reduced to 10% to trigger a hazard pictogram. This may result in many products being classified where previously they were not.
