Stop the Spread of Omicron

Keep Health at Hand with Hand San 80!

The world has been dealing with the effects of COVID-19 for almost 2 years now.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be leaving us anytime soon as the new Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been spreading quickly.  According to WHO, Omicron has been called a variant of concern based on the evidence that it has several mutations.  While findings have shown that Omicron might be less severe than the Delta variant, it appears to be more contagious. 

 

Of course, there are several ways to protect your staff and customers from the spread of Omicron including getting vaccinated, wearing masks, and physical distancing.  Hand Sanitizer has also been a staple throughout this pandemic and Swan has been providing thousands of customers with this added protection. 

 

Our Hand San 80 is 80% alcohol, meets the WHO standard and is Health Canada Licensed. 

 

Swan Dust Control has wall mounted or free-standing dispensers.  These rented units will be refilled with sanitizer on a regular basis by one of our client service representatives.  Give us a call for more information.

CDF 18-6 Flat Mat Washer

Reducing our Carbon Footprint with the CDF 18-6 Flat Mat Washer

In order to avoid climatic disaster, firms are now getting serious about reducing their carbon footprint. According to the Carbon Disclosure Project (GDP), a firm’s Supply Chain accounts for up to 4x the carbon footprint of a firm’s direct operations. Firms are increasingly pushing suppliers to become more carbon efficient in order to earn their business.  The floor mat service industry is utilized by most businesses, however, the services typically come with a large carbon footprint, 2 billion lbs. of CO2 emissions in Canada each year.

 

Swan has been paying close attention to this and is dedicated to using environmentally-friendly processes to clean and treat our products.  That is why we have decided to incorporate new low carbon cleaning technology that aims to lower its carbon emissions by 9 million pounds annually.

 

We will be installing the CDF Flat Washer, which is a mat cleaning technology developed by a Canadian firm in Piney Manitoba. 

 

Some of the many benefits include:

  • Decrease in water consumption

    • ​The CDF Flat Mat Washer uses less water than a traditional tunnel or front load washer. It requires only 900 US gallons first thing in the morning.  The water is then recycled all day through our washing process until the clean up at the end of the day

  • Top-notch customer service and quality product

    • ​This process washes more mats in less time

    • Improves the life span of our mats.  The current process of tumbling washers often results in having to tug and pull tangled mats apart from the pile created by traditional washing machines, which can be hard on a floor mat

    • The CDF flat washer washes and dries the mat flat, which eliminates any potential damage

    • The CDF-Flat Mat Washer also can process a wide range of mat types, including waterhog, bristle, logo, plush, vinyl, anti-fatigue, and scrapers

    • Provides superior wash quality

Swan is excited to see the positive changes that will come from the CDF Flat Mat Washer.  For more information, click the link below to watch a video on how the CDF Flat Washer works.
