Cleaning Trends To Watch Out For In 2023

As we enter the new year, it is the time again where we look towards what are expected to be major players in each sector for the upcoming year. The COVID-19 pandemic thrusted the cleaning industry into the spotlight for the last two years with an importance being placed on the possible formulas and appliances available on the market seemingly becoming more important than ever before. After the lockdown, it can be ascertained that more and more industry professionals take pride in the cleaning tools they use and have demonstrated an increasing gratitude towards the sector. In this article we will be taking a look at the cleaning sector and the key factors and products we anticipate will become household and commercial essentials. We will be highlighting the cleaning ranges and specific products that Alliance Online in our 23 years of expertise believe will be key players in the sector for 2023.

Natural Sterilisers

As cleaning has become more mainstream it has become apparent that the current cleaning products on the market aren’t naturally occurring sterilisers and the future of the industry lies in this department. There is one example currently on the market in the form of AquaTeck which uses the SC100 model which utilises ordinary tap water that is then fed through a standard water softener to produce ‘activated water’ which is a 100% natural, all-purpose sanitising and cleaning solution that utilises Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL). Commonly known as Freely Accessible Chlorine, HOCL is an excellent natural steriliser which can be used efficiently in both household and commercial cases. In 2023, it can be argued that the growing sector of natural sterilisers will experience a further boom. For more information regarding the AquaTeck SC100 HOCL production unit please refer to the Alliance Online website where we currently stock the product along with all other GreenTeck necessities that forms this range.

Special Services

In 2022, we saw more and more cleaning businesses adding custom attachments or add-on like laundry and carpet cleaner. The importance of carpet care cannot be understated as it can improve the wellness of everyone in the vicinity as it will increase the indoor air quality, allergen control and will also project a clean image to your customers. This is why knowing the very best tools and formulas is crucial to a commercial establishment. When dining, two aspects that will be most scrutinised are the floors and walls, the reason being these areas are most seen in a bar or restaurant. Thus clean carpeting is an essential as it can be a key factor in why a customer will return next time. Especially in the post-COVID-19 lockdown where any dirt or grime will be analysed incessantly by consumers understandably.

However going about finding the right carpet cleaning tools and formulas can often be a difficult task as different brands and companies will produce products that will offer varying qualities. This is why we at Alliance Online would like to provide some comfort and help when it comes to making these tough decisions. In our 23 years supplying cleaning goods to various establishments we would highly recommend the Ecolab Sapur A carpet cleaner as it can be used on a vast array of textiles and upholstery. For the upcoming year ahead we anticipate dining out to be a core aspect of life in the UK which is why bars and restaurants should be making sure that their cleaning equipment is of the highest priority and excellence.

Employee Training

The idea that all you need for clean areas and spotless spaces are the formulas themselves is a misconception that has seen many employees not knowing how to properly apply the tools and formulas correctly. Especially nowadays in modern society we are seeing advancements made in the cleaning sector seemingly every day and it can be hard to keep up with for industry professionals let alone for regular employees. This is why employee training is so crucial, providing employees with the tools and information should be of paramount importance. Some companies have started to train their employees in accordance with these increased demands. With this heightened focus on cleaning equipment currently happening it can be ascertained that more emphasis should be placed on providing the staff of your commercial establishment with the care and help required.

Since the COVID-19 lockdown there has been an adaption to different and more varied cleaning systems as companies look to find their ultimate cleaning solution to fight off the COVID-19 pandemic. One other reason why companies have started to train their employees to provide excellent cleanliness standards is the prioritisation of customer satisfaction that has increased due to the global pandemic which has seen the average customer become more aware of cleanliness issues. Alliance Online sadly can’t offer employee training however we can recommend the best cleaning equipment currently available and the most suitable tools for the commercial establishment. An example of this being the classic Numatic cordless Henry Hoover, the model NBV190NX is especially ideal for any commercial environment are due to the lower energy costs and safety first cableless cleaning technology. Another recommendation we would like to make would be the Kärcher SG4/4 industrial steam cleaner. The reason for this recommendation is simply down to the fact that it is highly versatile and can be used in a variety of environments.

Concentrated Laundry & Low Temperature Washing

As previously mentioned the environment is at the forefront of businesses priorities presently with companies actively investing in ways in which they can reduce energy usage and make cost savings. One area the hospitality industry can make look to make savings is the way it goes about its laundry. When it comes to laundry the most impactful aspect is the energy used to heat the water in the machines. According to Ariel1 if every household within the Greater London area were to change their washing temperature from 40°C to 30°C for one year it would save enough energy to rotate the London Eye 2.3 million times. As business owners however, we appreciate you are not interested in how many times opting to wash at 30°C can turn the London Eye so let us put it another way. According to a report published by Home Energy Scotland2 (managed by the Energy Saving Trust) washing at 30°C opposed to higher temperatures will save you around 40% of the energy you would normally use.

At Alliance we strongly believe in moving forward towards a greener future and a world where all businesses do their bit to be environmentally conscious. As such, we believe as wholesalers it’s our duty to ensure all our customers have access to products which can help them reduce their energy usage, such as the new professional range from Ariel. The benefit with Ariel’s new professional range is not only does it help with reducing your energy but also saves you money at the same time. But don’t just take our word for it, the new Ariel Professional liquid has been awarded the Efficient Solution Label by Solar Impulse Foundation. This label proves Ariel Professional helps protect the environment in a profitable way. Learn more here:
