The latest GOV.UK advice (4th August 2021) includes the introduction of fresh air to indoor spaces, to improve ventilation and to quote; “The more fresh air you let into your home or other enclosed spaces, the less likely a person is to inhale infectious particles“. The advice continues with how to do this; open doors and windows, uncover air vents and to make use of kitchen & bathroom extractor fans, if available. It also refers to putting on extra layers in cold weather to keep you warm.
This advice is indeed very sensible and should be adhered to as much as possible, but how will we deal with the coldness of Autumn and Winter – is it realistically practical to have doors and windows open as the temperatures drop? Be truthful…….what will you do with open windows in the cold weather?
What is fresh air anyway? – you would presume outside air, right? But pre-covid the headlines frequently brought outside air pollution to our attention, with serious warnings of effects on human health over short and long term exposure. In polluted areas (i.e. traffic pollution, farming, energy generation and industrial processes) then this is vitally important information to be aware of. These outside pollutants haven’t gone away.
The solution in many circumstances is to clean the air indoors – to do this you will need an air cleaner or air healer. A machine that filters, removes, and kills air contaminants; volatile organic compounds, microbes (virus & bacteria) and particle matter.
Here at Clemas & Co Ltd we invested in an air healing machine in early 2021 for our open plan office. We purchased the i-air PRO after two months of intense research and based this investment decision on MERV 19 air cleaning performance and technology, product quality, ease of use and low maintenance requirements. The Clemas team have all benefitted hugely from this addition and the confidence that it has evoked has been very reassuring. Interestingly, we have also seen a huge reduction in staff illness and abscence, in fact to almost zero this year.

So there is no need to let in polluted cold air this Autumn and Winter in your defence to stop Covid spreading. The answer is quality Indoor Air Cleaning.
Dust is a very dangerous health hazard and according to HSE (Health and Safety Executive) it is estimated that the UK has over 37,000 people who suffer from some form of breathing or lung condition. Some of the most serious respiratory diseases as well as skin conditions are contracted from the workplace and can be attributed to dust.
Dust can be an issue in almost any industry. Silica and wood dust hazards are well recognised but there are many more substances that generate dust which are hazardous to health. Exposure to such dusts needs to be prevented.
Dust is not always an obvious hazard because the particles which cause the most damage are often invisible to the naked eye, and the health effects can take years to develop. This dust can be inhaled, it can irritate your skin, it can cause eye damage and you can ingest it.
Where it is not reasonably practicable to prevent exposure to dust, a combination of engineering and process controls may be appropriate, some of these include:

In the last year we have all been experiencing a worldwide pandemic that has changed thousands of lives in many different ways. I think you will agree most of us would like our routines to return to normal as soon as possible, to regain a slice of ‘normality’. To help aid our recovery we need to think about cleaning our working environment to prevent the spread of the virus. Clemas & Co Ltd have compiled some useful cleaning advice to assist in a safe return to work. This article will guide you through effective floor cleaning, an insight into touchpoint cleaning and healing the air we breathe indoors.
Floor types vary hugely depending on the type of business or organisation, you maybe office based where the floor is carpet, you may work in a warehouse with a painted concrete floor, or perhaps you work in a building that has multiple floor surface types and these will require different methods to ensure effective cleaning. Whatever the floor type there are cleaning equipment solutions.
The traditional method of sweeping the floor is to use a broom. This is hard work and the dust generated will quickly disperse back into the environment, so although you will collect some debris from the floor, the finer particles are not collected and will re-enter the atmosphere only to settle later on surfaces such as the floor, equipment and products.
The best option to sweep would be to use a vacuum sweeper machine, available as either a pedestrian machine (walk behind), or for larger spaces a ride on machine (sit on). Most small to medium machines tend to be battery powered, the larger versions make use of either engine or again battery power. The sweeping machines will not only effectively collect the debris, they will also control dust by a vacuum and a filter system, preventing it re-entering the air. Using sweeping equipment will maintain health and safety, enhance your facility image, and will take far less time than using a broom!
Once the floor surface has been swept clean of loose debris and dust, you may then need to scrub the floor to remove the dirt that has not been removed by sweeping. The traditional way would be to bring out the mop and bucket!
As with sweeping by broom, manual mopping is hard work too, having to lift and carry the cumbersome mop and bucket wherever you go! Once the mop has been used on the floor once, you then must rinse it in the mop bucket, but of course this makes the water dirty. Once the water has been soiled you are then using the same dirty water to clean the rest of the floor.
The preferred and far more productive solution would be to choose a machine that will scrub the floor and vacuum up the dirty water as the machine passes over, this is called a scrubber dryer machine. Just like the sweeping machine types mentioned earlier, these machines vary in size and ability, and careful choices need to be made to choose the correct machine for your individual needs. There are pedestrian scrubber dryers and ride on scrubber dryers. Clemas & Co Ltd have the experience to help you choose the right solution. This will depend on many factors but include the size of the area you need to clean, floor surface type and how often you wish to clean.
Along with much improved productivity and performance the use of a scrubber dryer machine means you are constantly scrubbing the floor with clean water then immediately picking up the dirty water which is collected into a separate tank. This means that there is a continual cycle of clean cleaning solution being used to clean the floor unlike the mop, bucket, and dirty water!
Since the pandemic we are understandably all very conscious of the surfaces frequently in contact with many people’s hands. We have been advised to wash our hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
To help prevent spread of any virus cleaning touchpoints is vital. Before any touchpoint can be sprayed evenly with disinfectant the surface needs to be clean first and this will need to be done by hand. There are different ways disinfectant can be applied but the type of room and exposed surfaces have different requirements. If fogging, misting, or spraying takes place you need to consider the surface that it is being applied to. Most places have computers so mixing electric and moisture is never a good idea! There are often surfaces that cannot be wiped clean because they absorb water, and this could damage them. Surfaces can be hidden behind another object so effective spray coverage can be an issue. Clemas & Co Ltd have compiled an area on our website that covers the specialist equipment needed but you may need a little advice so please give us a call so we can discuss your requirements and recommend the correct equipment.
Cleaning the air we breathe indoors has become an extremely important part of our ‘new way of living’. We have already talked about floor and touchpoint cleaning to help prevent the spread of infection, we now think we are in a clean environment, but what about the air we are breathing?
Did you know that indoor air quality can be up to 5-10 times worse than outdoor air quality?
Getting a good airflow through an enclosed area will help, such as simply opening the windows. This seems like a good idea until you realise there are gale force winds outside and the draft is making your desk untidy, and the rain is making you wet! Windows in some buildings cannot be opened and finally what about the cold of winter?
Clemas & Co Ltd have invested in the i-air PRO high capacity air healer for our office space. We can all safely distance ourselves in our office, but we are unable to open the windows all of the time. After some intense research we discovered the i-air PRO which is a portable system that filters out solid contaminants (particulate matter), breaks downs VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and neutralises all living harmful microbes including viruses (microbiological contamination) in medium to large spaces of up to 500m2. This machine delivers air to a MERV19 level which is the same standard as an operating theatre. In short: the i-air PRO delivers the best air you can breathe indoors.
You can simply lease this equipment (subject to status) for as little as £36.61p +VAT per week over 3 years!

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.
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.
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.
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:
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:
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.
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.
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.
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).
The i-air PRO is the only air cleaner available on the market that can tackle the 3 main groups of contaminants.
The i-air PRO is the perfect solution for large areas up to 500m² and is ideal to use in:
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.

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”.
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.
We use our cleaning machines for all other essential cleaning duties, for example, sweeping and vacuuming, wet 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.
