DB Blog #14 – Sustainable Floorcare with a Diamond Shine

Diamonds are DB's best friend

I’ve become a whole lot fonder of diamonds now I’ve discovered that they can save me money and leave my floors with a blinding sparkle. This gem of information is too good not to share.

Twister by Diversey is the easy, cost efficient and environmentally friendly approach for everyday machine cleaning of hard floors.

With literally billions of microscopic diamonds impregnated on the working side, the Twister pads clean and micropolish your floor at the same time – completely without chemicals.

The full set of thirteen colour-coded floor care pads are all made from recycled plastics, which is another tick in my quest for sustainable practice.

Generally used with Diversey’s advanced TASKI swingo scrubber driers or rotary-disc machines, water is all that needs to be added.

The range includes pads for almost every type of hard floor manufactured by changing the size and combination of the microscopic diamonds. This makes the pads less abrasive than corresponding conventional alternatives which helps to protect the floor while giving a smoother and improved appearance. The resulting micro-polished floor is more resistant to soiling.The pads can be used with water alone, last three times longer than traditional products, and significantly reduce the need for periodic maintenance, all of which improves sustainability and reduces;

  • chemical usage by 100%
  • floor pad costs by 66%,
  • weight of consumables by 98% (which also saves transport and handling)

Working without chemicals also simplifies cleaning processes and reduces routine machine maintenance burdens.

Using just four pads in sequence – red, white, yellow, green – can rejuvenate and transform old, dull and worn stone floors with clean, uniform, shiny and polished results. The diamond impregnated side of the pad is coloured and also works as a wear indicator.

So perhaps the best diamonds aren’t the ones that you can wear after all?

Yours, DB
