The quality of the air we breathe as Londoners isn’t a new topic, with a population of around 8.6 million people the city’s pollution rates are pretty high. In order to improve air quality, the mayor has introduced the ‘ultra-low emissions vehicle delivery plan’ to reduce vehicle emissions in our city. It is hoped that by 2020 all the vehicles in London will comply to strict environmental standards. As part of this plan Hackney Council have begun fitting more charging points around the borough making the use of electrical vehicles more feasible.
In the 1st of this 3 part series of Blogs I try to answer some of the questions we are frequently asked by our customers relating to problems they experience when cleaning and maintaining carpets. Some of the information is taken from material produced by Prochem Europe and the Jangro Group.
Most of us are well aware of the risks involved in putting potentially hazardous cleaning materials and equipment in the hands of untrained personnel. Even with the increasing amount of environmentally aware products, there remain far too many accidents with chemicals, electrical equipment and lack of awareness of health and safety procedures.
Jangro has always offered a range of customer training packages including a DVD, training manuals, video and PowerPoint presentations, wall charts and certificates. However we now have 10 online training courses which you can access free of charge by entering our special voucher code, see below.
The standard of cleaning required within any establishment will depend primarily on the needs of the customer. As you can appreciate, the needs of different customers will differ from building to building. Indeed, the cleaning needs will normally change from area to area within the same building and affect the cleaning specifications.
It is generally accepted throughout the industry that there are five standards used. The following table will give you a better understanding of the standards required and how each is applied, depending on the area cleaned:

Live Video Streaming:With the event now completely sold out you can join in the fun as the event is due to be broadcast live via Twitters New Live Streaming App - Periscope
Whereas social media sites like Instagram and Vine let users record short video clips and post them online afterward, Periscope takes a different approach, allowing users to post live video streams of what they're doing at that very moment. "It may sound crazy, but we wanted to build the closest thing to teleportation," said Periscope's founders. "While there are many ways to discover events and places, we realized there is no better way to experience a place right now than through live video." And that's just what they're doing.

When considering the introduction of staff training within your own organisation, it is important that you consider the job you are taking on. For instance, in order for cleaning operatives to properly identify the correct product to use on any given surface, they must have an understanding of why the product cleans, how the product can be applied, how the surface being cleaned can be affected and the standard that can be achieved. To be able to do this, knowledge of all of the various components that make up an efficient cleaning regime is imperative.
With an in-depth understanding of the importance of budgeting in the workplace, Jangro has launched a budget management service to help customers monitor and track what is spent on cleaning materials via their online account.
Understanding the relevance of the pH scale when carrying out cleaning tasks is vital to anyone that is serious about commercial cleaning
