Ideal for offices

We are all very excited here at Clemas & Co Ltd, our i-air PRO has arrived this morning. We invested in this equipment to make sure we are doing everything possible to keep our air as clean as possible whilst working in our socially distanced office.

There’s a threat in the air!

Indoor air quality can be 5-10 times worse than outdoor air quality with VOC’s (volatile organic componds) and toxins from manmade materials along with bacteria and viruses. We spend an average of 90% of our time indoors in both rooms we work in and rooms in which we live.

One easy solution

We need to breathe clean healthy air to improve our living conditions and health. The i-air PRO has been designed as a high capacity air healer that improves indoor air quality in medium to large spaces of up to 500m². It filters out solid contaminants, breaks down VOC’s and neutralises all living harmful microbes including viruses.

You can now create healthy, clean and fresh airflow in your facility delivering the best air you can breathe indoors.

Ideal for offices

The importance and benefits of clean air

In this current climate the importance of clean air to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 is extremely high. Being in a room with clean air can reduce the risk of infection from particles by over 70%. We spend around 90% of our time indoors.

Surprisingly, pollution indoors can be 5-10 times higher than outdoor levels.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is what we personally experience from the temperature, humidity, ventilation, and chemical or biological contaminants of the air inside non-industrial buildings such as schools, offices, hotels, and hospitals – environments typically considered pristine compared with industrial settings.

The symptoms of poor IAQ:

  • Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Hypersensitivity and allergies.
  • Coughing and sneezing.
  • Headache
  • Colds
  • Coughing
  • Nausea

2.6 million people died worldwide prematurely in 2016 from illness attributable to household pollutants. In 2018 it was 7+ million!

According to World Health Organisation these deaths are attributable to the following diseases:

  • Pneumonia
  • Stroke
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Lung cancer


What are air contaminants?

Spending time indoors exposes us to hundreds of different contaminants.

There are 3 main groups of air contaminants.


Particulate Matter (PM)

99% of PM pollutants are invisible to the naked eye and they easily infiltrate the lungs. General sources of PM pollutants are dust, pollen and smoke.


PM picture

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s)

Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are a very complex group of gaseous contaminants emitted from solids and liquids. General sources of VOC’s are a wide range of regularly used products such as paints, cleaning detergents, building materials and pesticides.

VOC picture

Microbiological contamination

Microbes Include bacteria, viruses, animal dander, mites, and pollen. Sources are numerous such as airborne particles from respiration, waste containers, air conditioning and surfaces to name a few.


Microbe picture

One easy solution – i-air PRO

We need to breathe clean and healthy air to improve our living conditions and health. The i-air PRO filters out solid contaminants, it breaks down VOC’s and neutralises all living harmful microbes including viruses. The result is the best air you cab breath indoors, and to MERV19 class air (minimum efficiency reporting value).

How does the i-air PRO work?

The i-air PRO is the only air cleaner available on the market that can tackle the 3 main groups of contaminants.

Cleans all three Air Contaminant

  1. The air enters through this first filter with active carbon. It blocks all heavy dust and absorbs part of the odours.
  2. The air stays for a full 2 seconds in a UV-A & UV-C neutralization chamber. Which destroys and neutralises all microbes and viruses with a neutralisation rate of ≥ 99,9999% and ≥95-97% for microbes
  3. The second filter is a high grade self cleaning (H14) HEPA filter. It collects all the neutralised residue (≥0,2μ) of bacteria, viruses and other micro organisms. Filtration rate: ≥ 99,999%
  4. A powerful fan creates a perfect air flow through the machine and blows cleaned air back into your environment to MERV19 class air

Discover the benefits for your facility

The i-air PRO is the perfect solution for large areas up to 500m² and is ideal to use in:

  • Office spaces
  • Fitness clubs
  • Hospitals
  • Medical centres
  • Schools and universities
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants

How does the i-air PRO compare to other makes?

  • The i-air PRO is the only air cleaner available in the market that can purify the air from the 3 main groups of contaminants, particulate matter, VOC’s and microbes.
  • The i-air PRO is the only stand-alone unit on the market that delivers MERV19 class air to medium to large spaces. Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is an assigned rating according to the ability to filter out large particles. MERV19 means that even the smallest particles (≥0,2μ) of bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms are filtered. This is the standard of air in hospital operating theatres.
  • The i-air PRO brakes down VOC carbon chains, by oxidation & reduction process leaving harmless H₂0 and C0₂, most competitors unit’s absorb on carbon filters.
  • The i-air PRO has built in sensors, other makes do not.
  • The i-air PRO is maintenance free for up to 4 years.
  • The i-air PRO has a LCD control panel, it’s main competitors do not.
  • The i-air PRO has precise pressure sensors that determine the time when the main HEPA filter needs to be replaced, this avoids it being replaced too soon.
  • The i-air PRO has a much larger HEPA filter than other machines available.
  • The i-air PRO’s competitors have a UV-C lamp only whereas the i-air PRO is equipped with UV-A, UV-B and UV-C lamps.

Did you know that as well as significantly reducing risks to human health and improving wellbeing, the i-air PRO also aids improvement in concentration and focus leading to higher productivity.

The i-air PRO can be leased over a period of time, this can help ease cashflow and free up capital for other projects.

Touchpoint Cleaning RESIZED 20.11.2020 CANVAS

  3  8    1  5    10

Protecting ourselves and others whilst freeing up time and money……

With cleaning and sanitising never having been so important it is abundantly clear that businesses, governmental departments, our hospitals and healthcare, and in fact all of us are consuming time in huge amounts by cleaning in a way most of us have not before.  Please consider touchpoints as an example; door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, handrails, furniture, computer peripherals, work stations, sanitaryware and any other surfaces which see frequent human contact (the list is endless) – these are needing to be cleaned and then sanitised for us to be sure of eliminating the risk of spreading the virus through touch.  Not only must we clean touchpoints under this guidance but we must clean frequently, and in some environments this could be many times a day.

This is an abstract from the World Health Organisation Cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces in the context of COVID-19 from May 2020.

“One study found that the COVID-19 virus remained viable up to 1 day on cloth and wood, up to 2 days on glass, 4 days on stainless steel and plastic, and up to 7 days on the outer layer of a medical mask.  Another study found that the COVID-19 virus survived 4 hours on copper, 24 hours on cardboard and up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel.  The COVID-19 virus also survives in a wide range of pH values and ambient temperatures but is susceptible to heat and standard disinfection methods”.

Use machines to clean touchpoints? No.

As a machine supplier we would of course always champion proven equipment that is effective and improves productivity, alas, there is little help that cleaning machines can offer when cleaning touchpoints, and no proven effective alternative to manual cleaning and wiping down, following strict protocols as you go.  One claimed solution is to use misters, foggers or sprayers; and although there are applications where these types of equipment can benefit the Covid-19 fight they are not recommended alone for touchpoint cleaning and sanitising.  This equipment will not allow complete disinfectant coverage as this can only be guaranteed if it is then wiped over.  In addition, there are lots of measures that have to be in place before fogging, misting or spraying, such as; taking steps to avoid contact with any items that are electrical or moisture sensitive due to the risk of ingress, ensuring operator PPE is in place to avoid inhalation and skin contact, and consideration must be given to room re-entry times.

Spraying disinfectants may not be effective in removing organic material and some surfaces will be shielded by objects.  Folded or surfaces with texture and intricate designs may not receive full disinfectant coverage either.  It is recommended by bodies such as the World Health Organisation to disinfect by applying with cloths or wipes that have been soaked in disinfectant.  Using sprayers outside is also not recommended as the dirt and soil levels overwhelm the disinfectant and render them ineffective.  Lastly, regardless of using foggers and alike, all surfaces must be cleaned before sanitising which requires manual labour – you cannot effectively sanitise a dirty surface.

These safeguarding practices take a huge amount of time and as we all know ‘time is money’, so we need to think how we can save time in other areas of our cleaning regime; this is where cleaning machines have always come into their own.  It is nothing new, by that we mean improving productivity and cleaning performance has always been the big advantage when investing in a machine.

So how do we save time? 

We use our cleaning machines for all other essential cleaning duties, for example, sweeping and vacuumingwet scrubbing and drying floors, pressure washing outside areas and vehicles, steam cleaning kitchens and bathrooms to name a few.

Are you mopping, still?  Are you trying to get by with an old inefficient machine that constantly breaks down and even when it is working it is not performing?  Are you sweeping with brooms and wondering why your back hurts?  Using mops, buckets and brooms is hard work, takes forever and dirt / dust still seems to remain.  How long does it take for the floor to dry once mopped, is this safe?

You may use some machines already but are you covering all the bases?  Perhaps you can regain time by looking at other applications in and around your building, you may vacuum by machine but do you use a scrubber dryer to clean the floor.  You may benefit from a scrubber dryer to clean your floor but how did you sweep beforehand?  Are you using a cold pressure washer when you could achieve better results from a hot water machine?  Do you use chemicals when sanitising could be achieved with steam cleaning?  Are your operators trained in the correct usage and maintenance of your equipment?  When was your machine last serviced?  These are just some areas to think about and may help in realising opportunities to improve efficiency and save money.

All these situations can be massively improved by investing in cleaning machines – you can then save the time you need to apply to other cleaning duties such as touchpoints, particularly in this Covid-19 era.  It doesn’t have to be expensive and you don’t even have to commit to purchase – for many applications we can provide used machines, we can hire equipment, or you could consider leasing your new machine.  On weighing up the cost of your machine and calculating the savings on labour it becomes clear that the initial outlay for cleaning machines is recouped over a relatively short period and subsequently further savings can be made.  Be in no doubt a machine will clean much more effectively, improve safety, control bacteria and dirt whilst at the same time improve efficiency and save money.

Here at Clemas & Co we offer expertise in all areas of cleaning machines and will be very pleased to offer help with your equipment needs, furthermore reducing cleaning times, saving money and allowing your focus to be directed to controlling the virus and keeping us all safe.

Please take some time and view our website by direction at the top this page.

Let’s all keep safe.

Image of the Tennant S20 left side

Autumn is fast approaching and as we all know there are several outdoor spaces that will need to be kept clean and tidy during the next few months ahead. Car parking areas, outdoor retail and leisure spaces, business outdoor parking and storage areas, schools and university outdoor spaces all need to be kept free from leaves that could decay and with rain get slippery and create a health and safety hazard. Debris has the potential of trips and falls so public walkways need to be kept clear at all times. Sweepers can be used for removing anything from broken glass, leaves, grass, metal shavings, paper, cigarette butts and small stones from either outdoor or indoor surfaces. Sweeping machines offer a cost effective way to clean which would normally take forever to clean manually using a broom.

Coping With Seasonal Variations

The seasonal variations that cleaning brings can be a challenge when planning resource, people, cost and logistics all need to be considered carefully and in good time to be fully prepared for this seasonal task. Ad hoc leaf and debris clearing needs temporary additional resource which may include extra staff and a cleaning machine for this particular purpose, the issue with this is that it is only for a few months of the year. A solution to this, instead of hiring several temporary people to do this manually, which takes time and can be a considerable cost. Another consideration is that this would most often be done during the hours that people are walking on the paths which then makes for an unpleasant experience for your customers or in other sectors anyone who would use these public areas. The solution is to hire a sweeping machine that very quickly and efficiently sweeps and collects debris and leaves in one pass, leaving pathways and public spaces clean and tidy during the Autumn period. An industrial sweeper can do the job of a team of workers in less time and the sweeper will most likely end up doing a far better job of removing dirt and dust.

Why Hire From Clemas?

Wide Range. Clemas offers different hire options for a wide range of sweepers from one week to several months.

Flexible Choice. If you are not sure how long you need the machine for it’s no problem, you will have the flexibility to extend your hire period to the time period that suits you.

Delivery. We deliver and collect your machine so it’s hassle free, we even give your staff training on how to use the sweeper as some of these machines can be large ride on machines, depending on the cleaning job at hand.

Always Working. Clemas has a team of experienced engineers who ensure your hired sweeper is running at its best at all times,  you won’t have to worry about this during your time using the sweeper, all you need to do is ensure that every time you use the sweeper that the container collecting the debris and leaves is emptied out and the machine is kept clean, it’s that simple.

Expert Advice. If you are not sure which sweeper is best for your particular task we have experts on hand to advise you what is suitable so you get the results you want first time without wasting money on the wrong choice.

Competitive Price. Weekly hire prices from Clemas are very competitive, also bear in mind that the longer you hire the sweeper for the less the weekly cost will be, ask us about this when you call and we will be happy to give you our price options.

So What Do You Need?

Sweepers can be pushed and are often referred to as a “walk behind” or “pedestrian” sweeping machine. Sweepers can also be driven and are referred to as “ride on”, these tend to be for larger spaces and work quicker than the walk behind sweepers. Clemas & Co Ltd are here to assist you so you make the right choice for your premises.

An example of a manual pedestrian sweeper is the Tennant S3, this machine is ideal for walkways and smaller areas and is very simple to use, for more details on this equipment please follow this link:

If you require a large sweeping machine you might want to consider the Tennant S20, this machine can cope with much larger spaces and is a ride on model, for more details please follow this link:

A consultative approach means that early on we get a full understanding of every aspect of your particular cleaning activities and how this relates to your business activities. You will be asked lots of questions by your dedicated sales person who will also visit your site and conduct a comprehensive site survey before any cleaning machines are recommended. This may seem an arduous process at first but investing some time and effort at the start will certainly save you hassle, stress and money in the long run and prevent a wrong choice, sub-standard cleaning results and wasted money.

The right floor cleaning machine for your business involves being able to come up with answers to these questions:

Are You Or Your Staff Using A Cleaning Machine Already?

If you have been using a particular floor scrubber dryer that has done the job well for you we will not recommend something different for the sake of it. It may be the case that there are additional features on another scrubber dryer, or a newer model of the one you currently have that has improved features that may benefit you and improve your cleaning activity further, in this instance we may recommend a different machine. The Tennant Autofill battery technology that has recently been introduced is an example of recent improvements to scrubber dryers, we can advise you on the latest developments in the market and how these can or can’t help improve your cleaning.

What Is Your Budget?

Every business is striving to keep costs to a minimum and get the best value for money. We will work with you to achieve this as we select from a wide range of cleaning machines to suit all budgets. Fully refurbished used machines or ex demo models may be a cost-effective choice for some, Clemas has a large fleet to choose from. The long-term leasing option of up to five years is also an option, this can help to ease cashflow. Clemas will find a bespoke solution to suit your particular budget targets.

How Frequently Will Your Floor Cleaning Machine Be Used?

Frequency of use will define value for money and this is considered during the machine selection process. Better quality machines may be more suitable for frequent cleaning of highly soiled areas, or if hygiene is very important, however, if you only clean once a month then it may not be a large complex floor scrubbing machine you need but a simpler solution, a mop and bucket may be all that you need. We won’t sell you what you don’t need, this approach is why Clemas & Co has grown from strength to strength since 1988 with many loyal customers who trust our expert advice and recommendations.

 What Are You Going To Be Cleaning?

Oil/grease? Dust? Hazardous material? Litter? Wet and Or Dry? Each type of dirt/debris will need a different machine, pad or brush, machine strength/power and answers to this essential question are needed when deciding which machine is most suitable for the particular cleaning job at hand.

What Type Of Floor Are You Cleaning?

A disc machine with a pad holder is the most versatile because you can change the floor pad to suit the floor and type of dirt/soiling that needs removing from the floor. This works well on a relatively smooth floor, a floor that marks easily or a range of different floor material types.

Cylindrical machines have roller brushes with a high R.P.M. (turning speed of the brushes) and high contact pressure with the floors. These scrubber dryers are ideal for cleaning ingrained dirt out of uneven, undulating floors, cracked floors and other rough finishes.

Your dedicated Clemas & Co sales consultant will select and recommend the right machine type and accessories to match your particular cleaning task and floor surface type.

Is Cleaning Taking Place On One Level Or Over Several Floors?

Weight and ease of use of your floor scrubbing machine will be important if there are several levels in the building and no or few lifts. Most scrubber dryers are battery powered and for many good reasons. Moving it around and cleaning a number of floors with no trip hazards that a cable machine brings makes a battery-operated machine essential. Consider the run time for a battery scrubber dryer so it does the job in one charge, most types will need charging, uninterrupted for up to 12 hours.

How Long Do You Spend Cleaning?

Some scrubber dryers will mean less time is needed to clean because of their efficiency and speed, this may mean that less cleaning staff are needed. We will explain about the time your floor cleaning machine takes to set up and clean down as well as usage time and see what is the best option for your business.

Floor Size?

The size and accessibility of area to clean will also determine what size and type of floor cleaning machine will be suitable, and whether it’s worth investing in a ride on machine rather than a pedestrian/push along floor scrubber. If you need to use the machine for several hours at a time which is often over a large floor area then battery length of run time is key. On larger ride on floor cleaning machines, diesel, petrol or LPG can also be considered, these have environmental implications which need thinking about.

Don’t worry if you don’t know the exact floor area measurement in meters or feet, we often ask what the size of your floor is in relation to a football pitch.

 Cleaning When There Are People Around?

A mains powered machine will fast become a health and safety issue if there are people constantly around to trip over your cable, the mains powered option is only available for the smaller machines. If cleaning has to be done when there are people around, e.g. in a supermarket or an airport then it will usually be a battery powered cleaning machine. The noise level of the machine will also have to be considered.

The Questions Are Done, So What Happens Next?

Your dedicated Clemas account manager will use all your information to select the most suitable floor cleaning machine for your particular cleaning needs. There may be just one or there could be several choices of cleaning machine, it all depends on your particular situation.

After the site survey and the machine selection is done, we will come to your site with the recommended floor cleaning machine (or more than one) and you will get a full, free of charge demonstration. You benefit from seeing for yourself the various features and cleaning results the machine(s) will give you in their intended environment. You and your cleaning staff can try out the machine to see if it will be suitable.

Whatever machine you end up purchasing, Clemas & Co’s consultative approach means that you will get a bespoke solution that exactly meets your cleaning needs for the best possible cleaning results. You won’t have a cleaning machine that is unused and gathering dust in the corner that is a waste of money.
