Thumbs up for SEBO!

SEBO Dart

Carpet manufacturer Heckmondwike FB, a leading manufacturer of heavy contract fibre bonded carpet and carpet tiles, recommends that SEBO vacuum cleaners are used to get the best performance and life expectancy from its carpets.

Abby Chandler, Marketing Manager at Heckmondwike FB, comments, “To maximise Supacord’s aesthetic appeal, performance and life expectancy, it is important to vacuum every day with a twin-motored upright vacuum cleaner. If left to build up, the particles of dirt are much harder to remove which can damage the fibre structure and decrease the life of the carpet. We recommend SEBO commercial vacuum cleaners as they have the power and performance to clean carpets like Supacord effectively.”

The SEBO DART vacuum cleaner provides a powerful performance and is the ultimate lightweight, versatile, easy-to-manoeuvre commercial upright vacuum cleaner. Boasting a “Flex” neck and an on-board hose, the vacuum cleaner is designed to meet the demands of commercial cleaning. The DART is available in two brush widths – 31cm and 37cm. SEBO’s UHS polisher, which is an add-on to the DART, is the perfect way to keep hard floors looking great with a brilliant gloss shine.

SEBO’s BS range of commercial uprights has been designed with the flat-to-floor design and telescopic tube system that provides all round cleaning versatility. The BS 36 and 46 twin motor uprights are extremely cost efficient and economical to maintain. They incorporate changeable brush strips, low cost bags and filters, modular construction and readily available parts.

When Staffordshire County Council was looking to streamline its inventory of upright vacuum cleaners a wide variety of models from different manufacturers was trialled and, eventually, SEBO was selected as the manufacturer of choice. Now, some six years on, the authority has completed the replacement of all its upright vacuum cleaners with SEBO machines and has won an award for its cleaning.

SEBO BS36 and 46 twin motor upright vacuum cleaners were chosen by Staffordshire County Council after on site trials of the machines and the evaluation of feedback from frontline staff, this was followed by a tender valuation process. Engineers at the County Council also stripped down the test machines to identify any areas where there could be long term weaknesses or faults. Ease of use and lifetime costs were other key considerations with items like bag and brush replacement taken into account.

Due to their low weight and wide heads, the SEBO machines make it easy to clean wide areas quickly and without fatigue. Staffordshire County Council’s cleaning services team is now using them in some 550 contracts throughout the authority. These include schools, libraries, fire headquarters, social care and health outlets, schools nurseries and youth clubs. The team itself was recognised as ‘Best service team: Building/facilities cleaning’ at the recent Association for Public Service Excellence service awards which celebrate the best in front line service delivery in local government.

Chris Ryan, group manager (development) Staffordshire County Council, comments: “Our frontline staff have to be equipped properly so they can do their job efficiently. The SEBO machines are fit for that task and are head and shoulders above the competition. They’re industry workhorses; incredibly robust and solid, well-built machines with the bonus that consumables like bags are competitively priced. With the SEBO machines, we’ve seen reductions in our costs both for repairs and consumables.”
