Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE) will showcase the Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning® system at the CleantexPulire Trade Show at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg, from 12 to 14 June.

The Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning® system is described as a cleaning concept that aims to replace the mop-and -bucket system, Peter Esterhuizen, GCE National Sales Manager, comments. Kaivac International Business Manager Marc Ferguson will be on the stand to talk to customers, as well as give a presentation on the new technology. In addition, GCE General Manager Greg Venter and the Johannesburg sales team will man the stand.

Esterhuizen says that CleantexPulire was selected as the launch platform as it attracts the perfect target market for Kaivac, which is national cleaning contractors and their clientele. This is the 11th edition of the international trade show, which targets all sectors of the professional cleaning and hygiene industry.

In addition, GCE will also display its leading Tennant brand of cleaning equipment, featuring the latest advances and add-ons for this well-respected international brand. “Tennant, of course, is our primary brand, and the aim here is just to reassure the market how it continues to dominate and grow,” Esterhuizen explains.

Kaivac also targets that market segment where auto scrubbers are either not economically viable or are an ineffective solution due to space constraints. In addition, the No-Touch Cleaning® system enhances the health and safety of cleaning staff by reducing hygiene risks.

“There has not been that much innovation in the cleaning industry over the last few years, which makes our introduction of Kaivac locally such an important event. This innovation is particularly effective as it offers a flexible system approach to cleaning, and not just standalone equipment,” Esterhuizen elaborates.

The Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning® system has been proven to be 60 times more efficient in removing bacteria from grout lines than mopping, which is more than likely to spread contamination, as opposed to removing it.

The Kaivac 1250 is designed specifically for smaller facilities, while the Kaivac 1750 combines high capacity and compact size for added value. It includes innovative features such as a removable ‘black box’ engine compartment for rapid repair and exchange.

The range combines automatic chemical metering and injection with an indoor pressure washer and a powerful wet vacuum. It is a fully integrated cleaning system that allows workers to hygienically clean contaminated surfaces without any danger to their own health and safety. “The end result is not only improved cleaning, but also reduced labour, chemical and equipment costs, and much higher productivity,” Esterhuizen concludes.
