Mops and Vacuums
The Sh-Mop eliminates the use of a mop bucket and dirty water. It uses washable heavy terry cloth wipes for streak free cleaning.Since the covers are laundered, you always have a fresh sanitary mop which does not promote the spread of infectious bacteria.
Clean Conscience chose ProTeam vacuums because of their commitment to indoor air quality. ProTeam has partnered with the American Lung Association in a campaign designed to promote public awareness and education about indoor air quality issues.
ProTeam’s vacuums were also awarded the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label.
High performance vacuum cleaners have a significant impact on improved indoor air quality. At the same time, vacuums that effectively remove and contain soil while keeping the carpet looking good will help carpets last longer. So, ultimately, better performing vacuums provide a greater return on your investment and ensure a healthier indoor environment. Recognizing the need to identify superior cleaning equipment, CRI introduced its Green Label Testing Program for vacuum cleaners in 2000.
To qualify for the Green Label, these vacuums must go through a stringent testing process that measures three key performance factors:
- Soil Removal – The vacuum must remove a set quantity of soil from carpet in four passes
- Dust Containment – The vacuum must not release more than 100 micrograms of dust particles per cubic meter of air. This protocol evaluates the total amount of dust particles released by the brush rolls, through the filtration bag and via any air leaks from the system, and is more stringent than the National Ambient Air Quality Standards
- Carpet Appearance Retention – The vacuum should not affect the appearance of the carpet more than a one-step change based on one year of normal vacuum use
Vacuums meeting the above protocols, which have been peer reviewed by scientists, can display the CRI Green Label on packaging, merchandising displays and on the machine itself. Since the launch of this test in 2000, CRI has certified more than one hundred machines in the following categories: backpacks, canisters, central systems, and uprights.
