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

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

carpets as well as troubleshooting Solvex, the water'rinseable,
non'volatile blend of penetrating solvents and detergents for gloss and
