Arrowclean hits target with upgrade to truck mount technology

Former Times newspaper printer Chris Bamping stopped the presses back in 1986 to start a new career as a professional cleaner.

Now he's celebrating the 26th anniversary of Arrowclean by trading up to the latest in Prochem truck mounted technology.

Chris (pictured above) has treated himself to one of the most recent additions to the extensive Prochem truck mount range: the new Sapphire 370SS.

"I've been using Prochem solutions since day one but this is my first truck mount," says Chris. He has made the jump from a Prochem Cheyenne portable carpet and upholstery extraction cleaning machine and is already noticing the difference.

"I'm thrilled with the machine," he sums up. "It's more powerful, faster working and looks even more professional."

Highly efficient Sapphire Scientific truck mounts and carpet cleaning accessories are engineered to deliver maximum performance and durability. Common to all five models in the range is a heat exchanger technology that captures and retains heat efficiently, providing precision thermostatic control for a constant hot cleaning solution.

Sapphire truck mounts are built on a unique narrow platform that leaves more space in an existing van or enables its use in smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles.

Chris has his installed in a brand new silver Nissan Primastar: a combination that quickly caught the eye of customers.

"I have picked up new business on the strength of people just seeing the machine," says Chris, adding, "I soon made my money back!"

Formerly a domestic market supplier, Arrowclean's business mix has changed dramatically over recent years with only 20% of the company's income derived from homeowners today.

Chris puts it down to the current economy but is upbeat about a relatively thriving commercial sector in his Surrey catchment.

"My business comes primarily from offices, hospitals, shops and property management agencies," he says. "The lettings market is pretty strong in these parts and tenants and landlords alike are regular customers for a thorough clean to keep up with their mutual agreements."

Chris has always used Prochem Europe chemicals and remains a fan of the Multi Pro general purpose pre'spotter and traffic lane pre-spray for carpets as well as troubleshooting Solvex, the water'rinseable, non'volatile blend of penetrating solvents and detergents for gloss and emulsion paints, nail polish, varnish and solvent soluble inks on carpets, fabrics and other surfaces.

Sapphire Scientific truck mounts are CE certified and include full installation, training and service back-up in the UK by Prochem from its Chessington headquarters.
