The luxury Spa and Business Hotel Sanadome in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, offers mineral-rich thermal baths to soothe body and mind in a beautiful environment. Maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness, whilst adhering to an active environmental policy on waste management, is crucial to the Sanodome, which is why the company uses Chicopee’s advanced and reliable cleaning solutions.
With over 100 luxury four-star rooms, four culinary restaurants, including a private dining restaurant, and a spa with therapeutic mineral-rich water, the hotel Sanadome offers guests just about everything under one roof. The spa also boasts two sources of thermal water, one freshwater, used for drinking, and one saltwater, which has been certified by the Deutscher Bäderverband.
Awarded the EU Ecolabel by the Dutch foundation, Stichting Milieukeur, Sanadome is also committed to an active environmental policy. As part of its contribution to a cleaner living environment, both at a local and global level, the hotel pays continual attention to waste reduction and energy savings.
Hygiene is essential at the Sanadome, as guests expect to stay in a clean environment, free from dirt and dust. Unclean surfaces and floors can not only ruin a reputation, but can be a hazard to health.
The kitchen, although unseen by guests, is a very important part of the hotel and must adhere to the strictest cleaning procedures to maintain standards and avoid the spread of food borne illnesses, as well as the growth of bacteria.
Chicopee arranged for the Sanadome hotel to receive a range of product samples to test, including the multi-purpose Lavette Super and the nonwoven floor and surface Stretch ‘n Dust wipes.
The Lavette Super is a heavy-duty hygienic kitchen cloth with antibacterial properties. It is easy to rinse and dries quickly so it can be used over and over again. Available in five different colours it has been designed to support HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) conditions helping to prevent cross-contamination. It can be used in combination with any cleaning agent or disinfectant, making it a flexible solution.
Stretch ‘n Dust surface and floor wipes are environmentally friendly, being manufactured from 100% Viscose and coated with mineral oil, they offer an effective method for cleaning hard, smooth floors and surfaces. Available in two quality varieties, Stretch ‘n Dust Light and Plus, these wipes are ideal for use in a wide range of settings.
With their superior dust and dirt pick-up Stretch ‘n Dust wipes have become the preferred choice when strict standards of cleanliness are required.
As an integral part of the cleaning tool kit Lavette Super and Stretch ‘n Dust wipes are delivering great results at the Sanadome. Rik Wilkeshuis, Operations Manager, was impressed with the visible benefits:
“The floors are much cleaner now and staff members get more satisfaction from cleaning them instead of this being the job that everyone tries to avoid. Using these products has also reduced the requirements for vacuuming too.”
Training on the correct use of each specialised product has also been provided by Chicopee to maximise effectiveness and efficiency. Lavette Super had previously been used at the Sanadome, sourced from a different supplier and without adequate training. As a result the multi-use cloths were not being used appropriately. Now the cloths are being used correctly making them much more cost effective and environmentally friendly.
