First Middle East cleaning firm is HHPC certified
Transguard gets HHPC certification for work at Dubai Marina Mall
Transguard's contract cleaning team at Dubai Marina Mall has secured a regional first after achieving a 100% score during Healthy High Performance Cleaning (HHPC) audit process.
The firm used products from Diversey which have been certified by internationally-recognised Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI) at Dubai Marina Mall.
“HHPC takes traditional cleaning beyond appearances with procedures, chemicals, tools and equipment designed to make buildings safer, healthier and cleaner than before," said Diversey Gulf sales director Ian Veazey. "The programme combines certified cleaning products and microfibre with clear procedures to form the first cleaning programme certified for indoor air quality ."
He continued: “There is no room for error; all of the procedures in 14 key areas covering dust mopping and carpet care to pest management and spills, must be met comprehensively and Transguard is the first company in the Middle East to do so."
Commenting on the audit process, Charlotte Butt, FM services account manager at Transguard Group, said: “We conducted a series of practical training sessions for our staff, such as how to minimise misting of chemicals in spray applications and how to use dilution control systems. Once finished, we were audited by Diversey and our compliance was validated, underlining our commitment to comply with the very highest standards of hygiene."
She said that in general HHPC procedures are similar to traditional methods, but differences were more a matter of focus than technique.
