A Hard Day’s Work for Vaxinol

A Hard’s Days Work for Vaxinol eased by Prochem’s solutions

Liverpool’s most famous sons got special attention recently when city authorities upped their contingency for halting COVID-19’s spread.

John, Paul, George and Ringo (or their effigies, at least) got a proper spraying of Prochem’s D500 Microsan biocidal cleaner from start-up sanitising specialist Vaxinol, fast-becoming the most famous go-to solution for Coronavirus treatment in the North West.

While The Beatles may have grabbed all the attention, for Craig Howard it was all very new. Former cleaning solutions salesman Craig and co-director Bradley Griffiths set up their cleaning business in April. Craig said: “Coronavirus had already kicked off so we moved fast to meet demand for deep cleans from the commercial sector, and the business just kept coming in.”

Merseyside-based Vaxinol are commercial, industrial and residential cleaners specialising in disinfection and decontamination using electrostatic spray systems. They also offer carpet, upholstery and mattress cleaning.

Craig and Bradley’s business is busy misting and spraying, but they rely on the brand new Prochem SX2100 Steempro Powermax for the balance of the company’s day-to-day work. Craig commented: “It’s a very fast and efficient machine that cuts through the work.”

Craig and his two colleagues put the hot water extractor to task recently when they were called in to clean auditorium upholstery in an old cinema. Built in 1939, the Plaza in Crosby closed the day it opened courtesy of the Second World War, but following its reopening two weeks later offered full film programmes and, for many years, live variety entertainment.

The Plaza had a capacity of 1450 seats until 1976, when it was converted to a three-screen cinema. Saved from the clutches of developers in the ‘90s, it is today a community-funded venture with a main auditorium of 200 stalls seats and 370 balcony seats with each of the other two auditoria having 97 seats.

However, its plush blue fabric seats had got in a sorry state. Craig reflected: “They were very grubby indeed. But we set to work, going back over the job to sort out any marks and spots, and two days later, thanks to the Steempro and Prochem’s solutions, we brought them back to life.”

Craig is Prochem fan, having attended a number of the company’s training courses and solutions, especially the D500 Microsan. This multi-surface biocidal cleaner for hard surfaces, floors, carpets and upholstery is effective against bacteria including MRSA and viruses including Hepatitis B, HIV and Coronavirus. He concluded: “It’s been a must during the pandemic. Even The Beatles got the treatment.”

Craig and Bradley are back on the COVID trail now, launching a new range of non-alcoholic sanitising solutions of their own.
