The Importance of Good Hand Hygiene - Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Flu, the common cold, food poisoning and skin infections are all examples of illnesses that can be passed on from person to person. One of the most common ways these illnesses spread is from hand to hand – on door handles, equipment, pens, cash machines, phones cups etc. The germs are literally ‘dropped off’ by one person, and then ‘picked up’ by another.

Having the flu or food poisoning spread throughout a workplace costs money in sick days. However, it is much more serious than this in certain environments, such as hospitals or catering. Food poisoning the catering industry could ruin a company’s reputation, and a flu virus in a hospital could cost vulnerable patients their lives!

Good hand hygiene can prevent germs from spreading from person to person! If staff, clients and visitors have access to an effective hand steriliser, then a virus can be stopped in its tracks.

APT Cleaning Supplies are a leading manufacturer and supplier of all types of chemical cleaning products, including hand steriliser. The importance of good hand hygiene in any modern hospital or catering company requires a hand steriliser that is able to act quickly and efficiently, whilst being easy to use and apply. Steri Wash, an APT product, is perfect for this task. Find out more about Steri Wash and APTs other hand hygiene products

Algae Removal - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Algae is able to turn any surface or object into a bright green mass in very little time! Unlike other plant life, algae doesn't have leaves, roots or stalks which gives it the unique ability to grow pretty much anywhere it pleases! Once it has set in it can be very difficult to remove and will require a specialist cleaning solution to get rid of it and ensure that it doesn't grow back. Spending hours scrubbing away at the algae may be okay for some people, but it isn't ideal for businesses as the wasted time will be costly. In this case, the only way to ensure the swift, safe removal of the algae is to find a company who can supply you with algae removal chemicals.

APT Cleaning Supplies have developed a product just for this task – Algae Free. Algae Free has several important features including; a highly concentrated formula (ensuring maximum economy), is environmentally friendly and fully biodegradable and phosphate free, and is completely safe to use around pets and children.

Industrial Cleaning Supplies - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

From shipyards, to railways, to heavy machinery: industrial-cleaning chemicals will be required on an industrial scale!

If one product is able to do several jobs, then you’ll be saving even more money!

Moss Removal Products - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Moss, just like other similar vegetation such as algae, thrives in damp, humid environments and can be very difficult to remove. Affecting everything including pathways, cladding, signs, stonework, slipways and boats, it can create multiple problems. As well as causing an area to look run down and unkempt, moss can also create two other serious problems:

·       Slipping hazard – Moss can quickly turn even the most stable of walkways into potential health hazards. As the moss will capture and hold rain or water from any other source, it will create a dangerous and highly slippery surface that no health and safety executive would be impressed with! In this situation it is absolutely essential to invest in effective moss removal products

·       Structural damage – Instead of roots, moss has what is known as rhizoids. Rhizoids are tiny, root-like structures that allow the moss to anchor itself to almost any surface. In addition to holding water close to the surface, they can also penetrate into the material causing further degradation too.

If you have areas of your land or buildings affected by moss or algae, you should invest in moss removal products. The best way to do so is to get in touch with APT Cleaning Supplies and order in their professional algae & moss removing cleaner – Algae Free. Find out more at

Street Sign Cleaner - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

If you own and operate a company that is responsible for keeping street signs in good order, whether you work with local businesses, councils or any other organisations, you will want the right tools and equipment for the job. By using the best cleaning chemicals and the right equipment, you and your workers will be able to work faster, more efficiently and produce a better end result. As well as regular dust and dirt, one of the most common issues affecting outdoor signs is algae and moss. Algae and moss will begin to form on and around any item located outdoors, and also those found in particularly damp or humid environments. Once it begins to grow and develop, it can be very difficult to remove and can eventually cause damage to the surface if left untreated for long periods of time.

APT Cleaning Supplies have the perfect solution for street sign cleaning. If you need street sign cleaner, depending on your needs, there are several options to choose from. For a standard and fast acting cleaning solution you could choose a general purpose cleaner such as Speed X7 or, if you have issues with algae and moss you might find Algae Free a better choice.

Floor Tile Cleaner - Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Floor tiles are a great choice for many types of businesses including restaurants, bakeries, engineering and offices. As well as looking good, unlike carpets or other types of flooring, they are very easy to keep clean and even large areas can be brought up to a shining sparkle in a small amount of time. Of course, this is only the case if you or your hired cleaners are using the right tools and equipment for the job. It is also worth noting that it is possible for floor tiles to suffer from damage if the wrong type of chemicals or equipment is used. For example, some cleaning pads may be too abrasive for the reactively delicate tiled surface, or the chemicals may react and cause staining. Therefore, it is important to find a supplier who will be able to provide you with the right floor tile cleaner your particular application.

APT Cleaning Supplies have a range of floor tile cleaners, including Citracleanse, BiActive, Magnaclean Bactericidal and Aximax. If you would like to find out about any of APT's products, just visit their website at

Professional Oven Cleaner - Friday, July 11, 2014

If you operate a cleaning company, your clients will probably include both commercial and private kitchens. One of the hardest things to keep clean in any kitchen, commercial & residential alike, is the oven. Whether it's used multiple times every single day or once a week, the oven will develop a layer of dirt and grime that is extremely difficult to remove. Whilst it may be acceptable for homeowners to apply a cleaning solution and wait overnight for the chemicals to take effect, in a commercial kitchen the process needs to be much quicker. Whereas the average homeowner might clean their oven every couple of months, an oven used in a commercial kitchen will require much more regular cleaning and maintenance. For this reason, you should look to buy a fast acting and highly efficient professional oven cleaner. 

APT have a great range of professional oven cleaners including their most popular – Gladiator. Gladiator is available in two varieties – a liquid solution and an aerosol. Both will quickly remove baked-on grime, grease and heavy carbon deposits with no scrubbing at all! They also hold excellent environmental properties too as they are fully biodegradable and phosphate free. Visit the APT website at
