Fleet Valet The pressures of operating buses and trains means these surfaces suffer greatly over time. Unless you’re fastidious about the interior cleaning on a daily basis build ups can and do occur. As the weeks & months roll by hidden grime, wrappers, dust and junk can just pile up.
Unfortunately there is just not enough time during the daily and weekly service cycles to do all you need to do to keep your fleet in top condition and maintaining specialist equipment which will only be used periodically does not make commercial sense. You’re in-house or contract staff know how to prepare your fleet so it meets the requirements of your daily service commitments but trying to get the same attention to detail on a periodic basis is difficult.
Keeping you fleet clean has many benefits: · Retains the value of your asset · Portrays the image you want to your clients · Improves your Mystery Traveller surveys · Reduces customer complaints · Extends the life time of your surfaces by at least double · Reduces insurance claims for clothes soiling · Prevents opportunities for bug infestation · Restores faded fabrics · Reduces those “strange” odours that masking will just not address · Gives the asset a new, fresh appearance A clean fleet is also treated better by the travelling public which is a proven fact. Using the intelligent approach we can provide a planned valet project for your fleet that will return it to its former glory – In additional to the valet we can then also protect the surfaces so they will stay cleaner for longer and will be easier to clean on a daily basis.

ClearShield Moisture, Alkalinity and Dirt (MAD) can easily cause glass, exterior or interior, to become Problem Glass. Glass is a prominent part of the many transport surfaces and it promises visibility, clarity and cleanliness. Unless glass is protected against MAD, it can easily break these promises and lead to a low level of passenger experience.
Problem Glass can also fail to achieve standards for light transmission that were met at the time of train design. This has negative effects on vehicle presentation/ambiance not to mention the effects on structural glazing. Problem Glass can be found in many places on transport fleet and structures with one or more of the aggressive trio of MAD is found present. The two biggest enemies of glass are moisture and alkalinity. Either individually or together, they can etch or dissolve the surface of glass, making it appear dull and sometimes white in appearance. Some dirt can damage the surface, and further harm can be caused in efforts to remove it.
Problem Glass is any glass that has broken, or is likely to break, its original promises of visibility, clarity and cleanliness. This causes glass to become increasingly difficult to clean and keep clean â€“ a high-maintenance material of construction. In spite of frequent and intensive cleaning, Problem Glass can easily lose its original visibility and â€œsparklingâ€? appearance.
Improved glazing appearance instantly improves the overall appearance of fleet and structures and clear shield ensures that the appearances is maintained with a huge decrease in maintenance requirements.
Moisture can be in its liquid form, such as rainfall, or as a vapour in high humidity areas. Alkalinity comes from the fleet wash cycles as well as the general operating environment. Although Organic dirt does not normally attack glass it can attach firmly to the surface and be difficult to remove. For exterior glass, this includes traffic film, bird droppings and grease. For interior glass, organic dirt includes finger marks and head marks. Inorganic dirt bonds chemically to glass and is difficult, if not impossible, to remove using conventional cleaning methods. Inorganic dirt on exterior glass includes sea spray, industrial emissions, metal oxides from the braking systems etc. For interior glass consecutive tears of chemical based cleaning agents can begin to take their toll. For more than 30 years, Clear Shield has been developed and supplied innovative and costeffective solutions for Problem Glass.
These solutions will provide the cure for the glass and provide an increased passenger perception not to mention the reduction in current cleaning productivity. We are approved and certificated applicators of the clear shield system with a particular emphasis on transport systems â€“ Real world trials have shown how effective the system is when embraced with a clear ROI being achieved. Speak to us to see how we can help you restore and protect all of your glazing â€“ Intelligently!

Stone Protection Stone protection is the application of a surface treatment to surfaces constructed of stone to reduce staining and corrosion. All stone is riddled with interconnected channels that permit penetration by liquids and gases. These channels act like a sponge and draw in liquids over time, along with any dissolved salts etc.
Grime and dirt can then also penetrate the surface, making the surface increasingly harder to keep clean. Heat loss through walls and deposits of internal damp can also increase as this takes place. The longevity and usefulness of stone can be extended by sealing its surface effectively, so as to exclude harmful liquids and gases. The ancient Romans often used olive oil to seal their stone. Such treatment provided some protection by excluding water and other weathering agents, but it stained the stone permanently.
Very porous stone, such as sandstone absorbs liquids relatively quickly, while denser igneous stones such as granite are significantly less porous; they absorb smaller volumes, and more slowly. When surfaces become porous they allow rainwater penetration, causing a number of problems. These issues occur when the water soaks into the stone, as minerals and salt are drawn to the surface which are then deposited as white efflorescence on the stone surface.
Staining is the most common form of damage found on stone surfaces. It is the result of oils or other liquids penetrating deeply into the channels and depositing material that is effectively impossible to remove without destroying the stone. Salt Attack occurs when salts dissolved in water are carried into the stone.
Stone Protection Salt attack is better known as Efflorescence which is the formation of a gritty deposit, commonly white, on the surface. Acid erodes the stone, leaving dull marks on polished surfaces. In time it may cause deep pitting, eventually totally obliterating the forms of statues, memorials and other sculptures Our coatings will protect stone from water ingress, pollution, vegetation, algae and staining keeping your surface looking like new for years, saving you energy, time and money. The stone protection and waterproofing performance coatings are water resistant, colourless stone impregnation - up to 15mm deep which will prevent the need for continual cleaning, power washing and painting. They are all breathable to prevent the internal area becoming damp and improves the thermal efficiency of stone and masonry as the stone impregnation prevents water ingress.
Coatings can be used as part of a flood protection system for a building and are extremely abrasion and frost resistant which are also highly effective as a waterproofing membrane and reduces the growth of micro-organisms, moulds, moss and algae increasing hygiene on the surface. One such product is Gum-stop which prevents gum, dirt, grime, grease, oil and moss from adhering to the surface of paving slabs, brickwork, granite, marble and concrete. This innovative stain and chewing gum repellent makes cleaning pavements and paths an easier and more routine process. Even a sweeper or man and broom will successfully remove dropped gum. Speak to us to see the stone protection that is Intelligently right for you!
Stainless Steel Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance and familiar lustre make it an ideal material for many applications. There are over 150 grades of stainless steel, of which fifteen are most commonly used. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required. Stainless steel is used for buildings for both practical and aesthetic reasons. In order to maintain optimum appearance, the surface of stainless steel must be cared for regularly.
Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does, but despite the name it is not fully stain-proof, most notably under low-oxygen, high-salinity, or poorcirculation environments. Particularly corrosive conditions include: · Sea water, or de-icing salt splashing, or salt spray · High industrial or urban pollution levels · Hot, humid locations with salt or pollution exposure and very low rainfall.
Current practices include the use of oils on the surface but these methods can lead to an increase in dirt retention as well as the problems caused by the transfer of the surface residue. This method does nothing for protection of cleansing but just gives a visibly shiny surface which is short lived. Stainless Steel coatings are commercial non-stick protective coatings that seals the surface, making cleaning and maintenance easier. They are completely invisible and do not change or alter the appearance of the surface.
Stainless Steel The coatings provide both hydrophobic and oleophobic protection, reducing both corrosion and staining that often forms in most commercial environments. Many acidic cleaners that are used to treat the corrosion that develops on stainless steel can accelerate and increase the return rate. Our stainless steel coatings will eliminate the need to use those cleaners, and will dramatically slow the corrosion process. Similar to a non-stick fry pan, cleaning is made easier using only water and a mild detergent or with a microfiber cloth. The superior protection also helps prevent the build-up of mould and harmful bacteria, promoting a germ free environment. Stainless Steel Coatings can be applied to all new or existing surfaces. Ideal applications include: marine and public transport surfaces, commercial kitchens, escalator side panels. Passenger and goods lifts and general fixtures
Fingerprints, Streaks and general grime become much easier to remove and cleaning and maintenance times are reduced by up to 90% with the surfaces only requiring a regular wipe over to remove any grime build up. It keeps surfaces looking brand new and removes the need for harsh chemicals of other products. By helping to prevent bacteria build up protected surfaces promote a germ free environment. Extensive testing has proven the coatings to be highly durable. A 2-year limited warranty is provided for application to both new and existing stainless steel surfaces but the coatings can last up to 2 times longer than this. Speak to us to see how we can Intelligently restore and protect your stainless steel surfaces!
Oxidised Surfaces Global organizations have invested billions to protect valuable assets from corrosion, water damage, scratching, chipping, chemical attack and harmful UV rays. Many of these assets were painted using inferior materials not designed to withstand long-term weathering. Companies have various options when these surfaces degrade from UV damage: · Do nothing and allow the paint UV degradation cycle to continue (reduced corrosion, chemical and water resistance). · Replace the existing paint system using the same inferior conventional system (epoxy, polyurethane or latex). · Restore, enhance and extend the surface life of new or highly oxidized paint by 10 years using Nano-Clear®. Given the high cost of having repainted it makes financial sense to restore the existing paint. UV rays and salt can seriously fade the surface of paint. Often the damage is only on the surface and can be repaired.
Nanoclear® NCI-RC is the only industrial coating in the global marketplace to enhance, restore and extend the in-service life of highly oxidized surfaces by 10 years. Nanoclear provides extreme corrosion resistance, abrasion, chemical & UV resistance, water repellency and reduced surface maintenance. Nanoclear penetrates deep into the pores of newly painted or highly oxidized paints, enhances colour, improves gloss, increases surface hardness and extends UV resistance.
Nanotechnology gives us the ability to develop and alter materials at the molecular level. Manufacturing at the atomic level allows chemical engineers to alter the physical characteristics of parent material atom-by-atom to create entirely new substances.
Nanoclear Coatings provide extreme crosslink density as measured using DMTA, including remarkable surface hardness, chemical resistance, extreme UV resistance and high flexibility.
Companies are currently manufacturing revolutionary nanobased materials including carbon nanotubes, nano-polymers, nanoglass and nano-ceramic. Nanoclear Coatings are manufactured using proprietary 3D nanostructured polymers. These 3D nano-scale networks form the polymer backbone of all Nanoclear Coating Systems.
Interestingly enough, Nanoclear Coatings do not contain any nanoparticles like many marketed nanocoatings. Rather, all Nanoclear Coatings rely on crosslink density to exceed OEM technical specifications.
Not only will the treatment restore your oxidised surface Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis back to its former glory but it then provides protection (DMTA) is utilized to calculate the guaranteed for up to 10 years "crosslink density" of coating polymers.

SoftWash An increasing amount of external surfaces are becoming unsuitable for pressure washing either due to the type of surface or location and many clients also require the use of water/chemicals in external maintenance to be kept at a minimum. Self-finished silicone renders have become more popular among architects as there are many good reasons for this which includes architectural and practical design.
Whether you’re a local authority with council properties, A commercial building, a retail unit, a school or even an historic property with monuments and delicate brickwork, over time your surfaces will develop general soiling as well as bacterial and, under the right conditions, algal growths. These areas can become unsightly and hazardous to customers, staff and the public if left untreated not to mention to potential damage it causes to the surface substrate.
Our various softwash treatments is completed by the use of our own designed high reach pole & brush systems from ground for surfaces up to 10 metres or from access platforms for higher levels. There are many benefits for this system which include • Cause no damage to surfaces • Kill organic growth and inhibit Re-growth • Removes carbon and other general soiling build-ups • Can be used on all surfaces including Brick, Stone, Wood, Metal, Plaster etc. • Increases the lifecycle of surfaces • Creates surfaces where less dirt & grime are retained • General appearance stays cleaner for longer • Be completed without any major disruption • And all with a low environmental impact
Softwash Biofilms such as Algae etc. almost always consist of mixtures of many species of bacteria, as well as fungi, algae, yeasts and other microorganisms. If left untreated these can cause severe deterioration on untreated surfaces not to mention the unsightly, unkempt image it creates which has a negative impact for the building and all who use or see it.
The Algae problems have increased as urban weed control has become better targeted and more environmentally aware, particularly in areas of non-residual weed control. These problems are a concern as they can make any surface extremely slippery. The problems are Power washing actually drives the algae further most prevalent in autumn and spring when the into the surface and spreads spores over a soiling and algae have ideal moisture and wider area causing increased growth going temperature conditions. forward and, in the wrong hands, can cause significant surface damage.

Training Services Training is the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as a result of the teaching of vocational or practical skills. Training has specific goals of improving one's capability, capacity, productivity and performance. In addition to the basic training required employees need to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout their working life.
Too many managers view training as a luxury, not a competitive and strategic necessity. In today's business landscape, training is not just a matter of survival; it's what separates high performance organisations from the others. Embracing new processes or practices requires employee training. Training is more than just building the skills and knowledge of each individual of your team for their own personal benefit.
Companies that have invested in training report Improved recruiting, Higher retention, Better output. The lower your turnover rate, the more productive, enthusiastic and motivated your workforce. Employees will pack their new knowledge and skills into what they do, produce and service. Training will be effective only when certain conditions are met and this starts will the top tier of management buying in to the principle. The training should be in alignment with corporate goals and its requirement would be based on a simple needs analysis. The old saying of, "I hear then I forget, I see and then I remember. I do and then I understand." is very true in the service delivery sector as skills used a very labour orientated There are many ways to deliver training â€“ classroom, self-paced instruction, mentoring, computerassisted and web-enabled, but we believe that people cannot successfully learn the skills without practicing on the job.
We provide training for all levels which will include theory and practice and can tailor make the programme to each client’s needs. Due to our own operating service profile and our management teams extensive experience we are able to provide a variety training sessions which can cover items such as: · Urban cleansing including equipment use · Safe chemical usage · Chewing Gum & Graffiti removal · Surface preparation/Protection · Nanotechnology introduction and applications
The main goal of any training is to ensure employees are giving the best practical information to complete their tasks and that they have an understanding of how these said tasks can be completed in the “real world” environment.
The above list is an example and we can Speak to us to see how we can provide an provide many individual modules both directed Intelligent training module for your business! for management and operative. All training is bespoke to the client’s needs and is conducted at a time and location of the client’s choice which can include unsocial hours for those employees who are shift based.
The fundamental concept of a Total Quality Management system (to measure the successful delivery of a service) depends upon getting the input right and monitoring the out. Conducting a Cleaning Audit considers monitoring not only cleaning standards but also those elements, such as training and staffing that are essential for successful delivery of any service. Only in this way can problems be effectively rectified and, ultimately, prevented.
The service begins by monitoring the inputs which involves areas such as: have sufficient hours been allocated? Is there adequate site supervision? Is there a proactive signing in and out procedure? What level of sickness and absenteeism exists? What is the level of staff turnover? Are staff receiving the correct wage?

The mechanics of the audit are measured by use of scoring systems with the weighting levels set by area, or by task. We can also include weighting by cost, standard times to undertake certain tasks etc. The process needed parameters such as how many rooms will be visited or how many tasks will be checked. Audit visits can be random or a selective sample from the entire site. Pass rates are set based on what the client is seeking & the auditor sufficiently qualified to conduct the audit. If using a team audit they will be consistent with each other and the frequencies of how often inspections will take place.
Once the information is collated to agreed parameters then we begin processing the results. We investigate any reasons for failure to determine if they are operative failure, materials failure, equipment failure, failure of the fabric of the structure, failure of the cleaning specification.
