Steam Cleaner?

What do you think of when you hear the word Steam Cleaner?

To be honest before I started working at Morclean the only vision I had was of a small vacuum style steamer you would use in maybe your kitchen or bathroom, but oh was I wrong as there's a whole range of them.  

At Morclean we have different types of Steam Cleaners, so here I'm going to run through the details of each kind of Steam Cleaner.


All dry steam cleaners have a low volumeSupply steam and water with an element so no need for fuelClean low emission boiler so can be used inside Run from a 250v or a 415vSuited to detail cleaning internally or where fuel is a problemAll electric low volume vapour steam cleaners 

DRY/WET STEAM  Medium volume Electrically driven and oil fired steam cleaner Supply heat and water from an oil such as DieselThe steam production is high so can be used as wet or dry steam Suited to large surface cleaning with two outlets 
HIGH PRESSURE/WET STEAM  Often referred to as steam cleaners bu…

The Green World Ambassador Awards 2015

We attended The Green World Ambassador Awards 2015 on Monday which was held at The Empire Casino London, you may have noticed we've been a little (a lot) excited about this event.

Girl Power in the Cleaning Industry!

Did you know that two thirds of those earning low pay are women?

The most effected industries being Cleaning, Social care and Commercial catering, which I'm sure these women work very hard, so why should the work go unnoticed and under valued.

One of the latest competitive funds in the UK futures programme run by UKCES, recognises that businesses and the economy are losing out on women's full potential in the work place.

Gail Cartmail, assistant general secretary at Unite the Union and a Commissioner at  UKCES, said: "As a  UKCES Commissioner, I’m calling on employers to come forward with fresh ideas for action on the ground and to find practical answers to the gap in pay and opportunity that millions of women face day in, day out."

So how can you help? 

UKCES are keen to hear from employers in the adult social care,cleaning and commercial catering sectors where 30% or more of their workforce are women. This put forward will hopefully make the working patterns and p…

BinWash City - Five Facts

As I'm getting to grips with everything Morclean on my second day, I'm still being blown away at how impressive the Binwash City project is and how environmentally friendly it is. So I thought while I'm doing my research I would run over some interesting facts.

The machine is virtually silent... No noise complaints! Binwash City is also Carbon free and gives out no fumes.So yes the service you would provide would be totally Green.The Binwash switches to standby when not in use. So you save on battery power to keep costs down. Water is filtered and ready to be re-used throughout the day. Let's Recycle. 

I'm taking it that you have read today's post about the International Green Apple Awards? well this is the Machine that won the award. If you haven't you can go view the post here

The Green World Ambassador Awards 2015

29th June 2015 a date for your diary...

We will be attending The Green World Ambassador Awards 2015, Empire Casino, Leicester Square, London. 

The awards are organised by the Green Organisation which has been established since 1994 as an international independent, non profit, non political, non activist environment group, dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.

I'm sure you may have read previously about our Binwash City Machine well this environmentally friendly machine has won us our award. Our innovative design is new to the market place. It provides operators and the community with a smarter, green, quieter, workable solution to a dirty problem.

So we definitely have the "GREEN" covered.

So what makes our Bin Wash Green?

Like many bin washers on the market today, we considered recycling water and saving energy was a requirement rather than an innovation. We felt that machines were making savings for reasons of n…

The Blue Box has arrived!

TheBlueBox has officially arrived at Morclean!

Here in the Morclean office we have such a buzz about this new release, from seeing this on my first day I can see why, I was really impressed.

Having great in design features which make it easy to fit with minimal installation, all surface mounted so no need to disrupt the workplace with costly building work.

The BlueBox only requires a power supply to operate with a simple connection consisting of one inlet from the wash bay and one outlet to a mains foul drain.

Thinking about relocating? no need to stress as the BlueBox is semi portable and easy to move which can be set up in your new location. This is possible as everything is above ground making unsightly building work a thing of the past. I think this is what impressed me the most after thinking about how much disruption would be going on if it was all under ground, mess everywhere.

The Morclean system can be manufactured for other suppliers, in other colours, and with their own corp…

The BlueBox is here!

TheBlueBox is an above ground partial water treatment system. It's designed to provide an alternative to costly and inconvenient ground works and to eliminate excavation for the installation of  interceptors and tanks.
Surface Mounted It’s a totally surface mounted system that can  replace the need for  an interceptor, and can be used in conjunction with the Morclean wash pad, or your own wash pad, and where water is discharged to a mains foul drain

Design The Morclean BlueBox is a system designed to treat the outflow from a wash bay or car wash area without the need for a below ground interceptor. The BlueBox is surface mounted and requires just a power supply to operate.  The simple connection consists on one inlet from the wash bay and one outlet to a mains foul drain
Minimal Installation The BlueBox requires minimal installationand is surface mounted, this means there is no requirement for excavation or builders works to install an interceptor and the system is semi portable so can…

My first day at Morclean

For me Monday night mainly consisted in me setting my alarm for a super early start, by accident may I add meaning I got up half an hour before I was supposed to. Feeling better for the nice relaxing walk for my train, appose to my normal get out of the door and catch that train! Then straight on to a bus to drop me in Staveley, Derbyshire for my first day at Morclean. 

So let me introduce myself, my name is Jodie Blackburn and today I will be getting to grips with everything Social Media and Marketing related at Morclean. Taking on the role of Social Media and Marketing Assistant, what a lovely office to come into. 

After my induction and walk around the building I was asked by Peter to sit in on this mornings sales meeting, wow straight in there on my first day how exciting. 
This particular meetings focus was all about the Morclean Permanent Wash Pad, which was set up outside which peter gave me a quick run through. 

Did you know that it is illegal to wash any vehicle on business pr…

Morclean water capture

Morclean ‘BlueBox’ water system Below ground interceptors are reasonably inexpensive but the associated builders costs are considerable (and you can’t remove the interceptor afterwards or relocate to another site)
Above ground interceptors take up approx. one car parking space, they’re not particularly pretty things to look at and  not pleasing to the eye when they're sat outside your building either
The BlueBox is a surface mounted system that handles waste water from a wash pad or existing sump, there is minimal installation and  all that is required is a main power supply and a pump fitted to your wash bay sump

Morclean Wash Pads

Morclean Wash Pads As you’re probably  aware the civils and builder’s costs for creating a wash pad can be considerable
Please see below the details of this surface mounted, movable and semi-permanent wash pad
The wash pad will therefore satisfy current legislation for the containment and disposal of water from a wash bay, namely that it is a dedicated, isolated, kerbed, and impermeable surface that contains all the contaminated waste water.
The wash mat is a surface mounted system which means the operator can avoid excavation or the need to have any items installed below ground. 
This is ideal for leasehold or sensitive sites such as a multi storey car park where ground works are not practical.
