Merry Christmas from Morclean

Image
Just a little post from us all at Morclean to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year before we close the office. We will be closed from around lunch time today (24th December) and re-open fully on 2nd January 2014 at 8am. We will see you then! Ho ho hooooo...

Morclean Super 240 - Trolley Litter Vacuum Pack

Image
Today we finally had a clean, dry day to get filming the Morclean Super 240 and grab a few teaser photos whilst we were at it.

Myself (Becky) and Keith (Sales Team) went into the yard to test out the Morclean Super 240 and to see what damage could be done with it!

Unlike our other vacuum litter collectors, this model stands on a large, sturdy wheeled base with a normal 240l bin standing on it to collect the waste which is sucked up. The Super 240 has an injection molded fan and fan housing to increase suction and overall performance. It can hoover up anything from glass, leaves, cans and bottles to dog faeces and stub ends, which makes it a very versatile piece of kit to clean large areas such as holiday parks, large factory settings, etc.

"The Super 240 is a powerful outdoor vacuum cleaner designed for cleaning up litter and dog faeces from areas where access can be a problem.
Supplied with a 240 litre wheelie bin with or without a trolley it can also be fitted to a utility vehic…

Clean Green Graffiti

Image
A couple of weeks ago I did a blog post introducing you to a new 'clean' graffiti method - reverse graffiti. The method consists of using a stencil over either a pavement, wall or other 'dirty' surface and pressure washing your company's logo or a message/picture of some sort onto it. The method is widely used by company's all over the world as it is a legal form of graffiti.

We were going to experiment with the method but due to the ever changing weather conditions, it hasn't been particularly safe to be doing so! So, here's a little something I created on Photoshop to give you a good idea of how this marketing technique can be used effectively!

Morclean specialise in industrial and commercial cleaning equipment including vacs, air vacs, h-type vacs, litter picking vacs, vapour steam, pressure washers, steam cleaners, bin wash trailers, graffiti and gum removal machines, housings and kiosks and many other areas including vehicle valeting bays and inter…

Merry Christmas from everyone here at Morclean, NAWBW.

A Rainbow of Fun at Matlock Late Night Shopping

Image
The weather isn't quite perfect for a spot of festive fun BUT in true British style, the show must go on... Matlock tonight will play host to a range of festive events including Late Night shopping (get those purses and wallets dusted!), Dale Divas and Christmas Lights Switch on as well as other events! Shops are open until 8pm so you really have no excuses at all...



There was a lovely rainbow over Morclean earlier which I just managed to get a snap of - I thought it might bring you all some good luck with the events tonight... unfortunately there was no pot of gold at the end of it, but you can't have it all!

We hope that the independent shops of Matlock have a fantastic event tonight - fun starts at 5pm!


Ironic Graffiti Art... moving on from the politics...

Image
As soon as I stumbled across this story I knew it would be one you would all like to hear. We all know that graffiti can be unsightly, and sometimes just inappropriate but there are some graffiti artists out there worthy of a wall or two to brighten up or spread a  message - people like Banksy would be the most obvious choice, but there are other graffiti artists out there including an artist by the name of DS.

Graffiti artist DS hit the news earlier this year with his Hello Kitty 'turned bad' creations. After he stenciled one onto a building in London, only to see it removed less than 24 hours later, he decided to spread a bit of graffiti irony. He decided to graffiti the same wall with the image of the graffiti remover... making this graffiti remover infamous!

(photos are copyright of the Caters News Agency - we do not own any of the photographs)

A really clever idea and I'm sure the remover was flattered... we're not too sure how quickly he removed this peice, but we&…

Food Hygiene Ratings Display Become Mandatory ... How Morclean Can Help!

Image
Food hygiene regulations in the UK and Wales in particular have become stricter this morning with the voluntary 'scores on the doors' scheme now being rolled out as mandatory in Wales. The scheme was introduced in the UK recently as a voluntary measure where certificates of food hygiene were to be put on public display showing a rating of between 0 and 5. Most food outlets automatically adhered to this voluntary measure with many proudly displaying their certificate in the window or on the counter at the food outlet.

Now the scheme has become mandatory and is set to be rolled out further, the need for superior food hygiene standards has become a necessity and often your business can depend on it. Here at Morclean, we have some of the best cleaning equipment on the market. Our range of Vapour Steam cleaners, which can be viewed at http://www.morclean.com/vapour-steam/index.html, demonstrate the vast range of cleaners on the market from the commercial light unit, all the way up …

Reverse Graffiti - A New 'Clean' Marketing Trend

Image
Most people have heard the word graffiti but not many will of heard of the new trend in art and marketing which is reverse graffiti.
Unlike the traditional graffiti methods which use spray paint and other types of paints, solvents, inks, anything which will leave a mark and be a nuisance to take off (most people need professional cleaning solutions such as http://www.morclean.com/grafitti-removal-equipment.html), reverse graffiti uses a ‘cleaning’ method, and as you all know, we’re all about cleaning!
Many large corporations have caught onto this trend firstly because there is no law against the cleaning of buildings, and secondly because it’s a pretty cheap way of marketing and brand awareness.
You can see below, a dirty pavement or wall has been used, a stencil applied and simply the logo has been ‘washed on’ … maybe the Morclean Pressure washers were used http://www.morclean.com/industrial-high-pressure-washers-index.html ? A pretty cool and imaginative use of dirt I think you’d a…

Morclean Lands on the Shetland Isles

We had an email a few weeks back from one of the remotest parts of the UK you can find… the Shetland Isles. They needed a unit capable of cleaning generators in environmentally friendly surroundings for some pretty urgent work. The Unit needed to be able to clean ivory coloured generators; they needed to be cleaned and de-greased ready for the winter season.
Morclean was able to come to the rescue with our Vision Steam Pro 400 which you can see on our website - http://www.morclean.com/vapour-steam/pro-range.html . The Vision Steam Pros are currently enjoying their new home all the way up in Scotland. 
All in a weeks work…

OXJAM Charity Music Festival, Matlock 2013

Image
For such a small town I always find there’s something exciting going off in Matlock. It has a fantastic Victorian Market, a real community with the shops down there and there’s always something to do and see whether it be the lovely buskers outside the coffee shops or a fun event in the park. So when we heard there was to be an event raising money for Oxfam we thought we had to tell you about it!
From 30th October – 2nd November forget all about Halloween and Bonfire Night approaching, get yourselves to Matlock's Oxjam Music Fest. There’s events kicking off left right and centre and it’s all for a good cause. These guys want to raise at least £1,000 for Oxfam through the ‘Oxjam’ campaign that has swept the nation. It’s a great excuse to get out and see some local, fresh musical talent and help out a worthy cause at the same time. On Wednesday 30th October head to the Monk Bar from 8pm as they have a great quiz and will be joined by Sweet Crumbs who will be there selling their delici…

Morclean Hits the Jersey Shore!

Image
It’s official, but it’s not what you think… Morclean has hit the Jersey Shore. Although glamorous, it wasn’t the MTV famed destination in the U.S.A- it was Jersey in the Channel Islands and in true British style the weather wasn’t quite there, which made it the perfect day for a bin-cleaning demo!
Early Friday morning Keith, a member of our sales team, flew down to Jersey to take on the task of introducing our bin cleaners to the Channel Islands. It was pouring it down with rain and the flights were delayed but he was a man on a mission…
The Wheelie Bin Washers we are talking about are trailer-mounted washers you can see in action here… 

The bins are attached and raised up so there is no need to manually hold and steady the bins whilst they are cleaned. The bins are cleaned using the onboard pressure washer with dirt and debris caught on the metal tray below the bin. The water then falls through the filter to be recycled and used again. You can find out more information and specificatio…

What a weekend! 

The whole four days of Matlock Festival 2013 have been an absolute blast! Hall Leys Park was packed Saturday and Sunday. It's a shame the sun didn't make more of an appearance, but that didn't stop anyone enojoying the festival. 

I was lucky enough to enjoy the whole Sunday in glorious Matlock, and had a fantastic time!

Here are a few things I cast my eye on...
