KD Masters the Sapphire
If ever there was an advocate for investing in truck mounted carpet
cleaning, it's Keith Dugard of KD Contracts in Dover.
Keith has bought a Sapphire Scientific 370SS from exclusive distributor
Prochem Europe for his new Renault Master van - and he's ecstatic about
"My van was getting older and like my previous truck mount was having a
few major problems. So, my overall investment was relatively
significant. But the vehicle and Sapphire are a perfect fit," he says.
"The Sapphire is more powerful, better priced and struck me as
well-designed, ultra-reliable and efficient. I love the machine!
"The installation has been carried out expertly and the finished effect
is great. I cannot thank Prochem enough for the professionalism and
courtesy shown to me throughout" says Keith.
"I have yet to rack out the van so that all the other necessary bits of
equipment and chemicals are stored safely and neatly. In the meantime I
am extremely proud of my new purchase," he adds.
Founded in 1980, as a general contract cleaning company, KD Contracts
switched full-time to residential cleaning 15 years ago - "more
profitable and better appreciated," Keith sums up.
The company specialises in cleaning carpet, upholstery, Oriental and
area rugs, curtains and other soft furnishings.
Two years ago, Keith took a training course to learn how to clean and
seal marble, stone, tile and grout, so in addition to looking after
textiles, is able to maintain or restore hard flooring, also.
Keith had a team working with him but is back to working solo, which he
prefers for the added flexibility and simpler logistics. He travels from
his Dover base throughout Kent and into neighbouring Surrey.
"The Sapphire is so much of an improvement over the last machine I had,"
he says. "Technology has advanced the boundaries of what the machine can
do performance wise and in terms of controllability. No wasted fuel, no
wasted water. It really is so very much better.
"I did a special job at a local restaurant in Deal where a greasy
restaurant carpet came up like new with one pass of the wand.
Keith uses Prochem Europe chemicals and accessories for his new
investment. "I use Filter-Out simply because it's very good. Fibre &
Fabric Rinse is great too, and has a lovely good odour."
No regrets, then? "Far from it," is the reply. "I feel better about my
business, the image I am presenting and the job that I can perform."
