For the past two years, Cleaning Africa Services has been researching ways to become more “green”.
At its annual Bosberaad (Indaba) in February 2012, the company proudly announced that it has made a commitment to reducing its Carbon Footprint on the environment .
As of 1st July 2012, Cleaning Africa is going completely ‘GREEN’.
How green is ‘green’?
- Only 100% Green chemicals will be used
- Dramatic water savings through the new ‘Waterless Car Wash’ systems
- Huge electricity savings with low-pressure hand pumps
- Green Waste Removal and Disposal
Two Pilot Sites will be Tested
Starting on the 27th February 2012, two Mercedes-Benz dealerships– one in Bryanston and the other in Constantia – will have all their conventional chemicals recalled and each will receive a different range of green chemicals for testing.
One of these is the Innu-Science bacteria-based range and the other is the Delphis Eco range which is predominantly derived from plant based ingredients. Theses companies have emerged tops from a selection of the latest green products that have been rigorously tested by Cleaning Africa over the past several months.
Car Washing goes ‘Water-less’
In April 2012, a representative of Cleaning Africa is going over to China to finalise an agency for “Waterless Car Wash Carts” and “Waterless Car Wash Chemicals”. On average, these systems use about one litre of water per car wash instead of the usual 40 litres one would use with a high-pressure washer.
These waterless units are fully mobile and use manual sprayers with a low-pressure supply system that also saves on the consumption of electricity.
Green Waste Disposal
Negotiations are currently underway with a green Waste Removal Company to partner Cleaning Africa for the safe removal of waste products at our sites.
