Recently the Soft Services manager responsible for Service Station Cleaning at a facility on the M20 motorway got in touch looking for a machine to clean their large public floor areas. The service station just outside of Folkstone is a modern 24-hour service station and HGV Truck Stop that services the nearby port and Eurotunnel. It’s extremely busy and the manager was tasked with keeping the environment clean not just for truck drivers but also for families. The facility includes the usual mix of washrooms, shops and self-service restaurants.
They needed a floor cleaning machine that could deal efficiently and effectively with the marks and dirt left by the constant and heavy traffic of people traversing the floors in the main area and passageways. After some consultation we scheduled a date to take a brand-new Viper AS710R Ride on scrubber dryer down to the service station in Kent to demonstrate its capabilities.
Service Station Cleaning Machine
After arriving at the M20 Services and making contact with the manager, we set the machine up in the main restaurant area which receives a lot of footfall and has to come with food and drink staining. Naturally the service station is open 24 x 7 so we sectioned off an small area where we could demonstrate the machine. From the customers point of view, it must have looked like we were simply cleaning the floor.
Given the circumstances we started by applying a dilution of detergent to the floor and then ran the machine over a section of it to demonstrate the power of the Viper AS710R suction and vacuum which leaves the floor dry. Next the machine was run over the floor with scrubbing and vacuum extraction enabled to demonstrate the full cleaning power of the machine. Naturally we could only do this on a small section of the floor, but you can clearly see a clean line running through the demonstration area.
The manager was impressed with the machine, he could see the benefits especially its ease of operation and how quickly it had managed to clean the floor. As a result, it was agreed they would take the machine and so we moved onto discussing the financial options which concluded in a long-term hire agreement.
