The scale of the PowerVac site leaves no doubt that you have entered
WAs cleaning industry ‘mecca’, situated in the industrial hub of the
state. Small and medium sized cleaning company owners and staff, as
well as operators from health care and education sectors, attended the
cleaning seminars and were part of a steady stream of punters treated
to advice from the industry representatives manning the show stalls.
Along with a local Perth contingent, PowerVac’s Tao Adams, event
organiser, said some attendees had made the trip from remote regions
of WA’s north and south-west to take advantage of the show, now in its
second year. The trade day’s inception comes at a time when the industry
is adjusting to a leaner economy, post the state’s great mining boom.
“We know that creating an opportunity to network and share
information will improve our customers’ business productivity,” said
Tao. “It’s a way for us to reach out to existing and new customers to
show them different things we can do and new products – give them
a general awareness of what’s out there.”
As part of the focus on professional training, Jena Dyco, the
international training provider for the specialised cleaning and
restoration industry, was at this year’s show. “It’s a fairly expensive
exercise to host, but this is the only regular cleaning industry
trade show that happens in WA,” Tao explained. “Hence the great
distances people have travelled to be here. And we are happy to be
able to do this for our customers,” he added.
Morning workshops helped attendees learn how to operate
three new machines that reflected client’s greener expectations.
Demonstrations of the Unger Stingray window cleaning system,
the Tennant T300 Scrubber, and the Conquest Nano Edge orbital
scrubber were well attended. All three products incorporate nano
technology enabling the option of chemical-free cleaning.
Hako’s Noel Moines presented an information session on
integrated environmental cleaning, outlining the value of superior
technology and a guide to corporate environmental responsibility.
The session aimed to increase operator understanding of how
Hako is helping reduce its environmental footprint and supplied
information leaflets to pass on to clients.
Those that attended the module on carpet and hard surface
cleaning opportunities by SV Equipment’s Tal Evans took away
concepts to recoup value ‘leaking’ from business, concepts to
engender trust in key relationships and credibility enhancement.
A break for a sausage sizzle lunch in the car park provided
sustenance for the afternoon’s activities which featured product
innovations in floor care presented by Karcher, and an introduction
to the iconic Henry Vac’s brother, the new Numatic battery vacuum
backpack and compact TT1840B battery scrubber.
Cleaning operators were urged to forget ladders and squeegees with
a pure water window cleaning session for high windows, continuing
the green theme from the morning sessions. The afternoon session
concluded with instruction on the encapsulation carpet cleaning
technique with Orbot.
“A lot of our customers have been meaning to do more training and have
now made the commitment,” said Tao. “To give them that opportunity
is a great outcome and makes this event even more worthwhile.”
Training tops 2016 WA cleaning

Commercial and industrial equipment supplier, PowerVac, hosted its annual WA Cleaning Industry Trade Day on
Friday 17 June, which saw around 70 attendees take part in a full day of free educational seminars and training. The
venue was the gleaming PowerVac Osborne Park showroom and service centre, which had stalls set up between an
extensive cache of industrial cleaning supplies and equipment.
