Local Authority

Every year it would seem that Local Authorities are having their budgets cut. Whether you are a big city borough, a town council or manage a parish hall, cost saving and efficiency will be essential. No one however wants to compromise on quality especially when your borough depends upon you so we will work closely with you to ensure costs are managed but quality does not suffer.

We can help with and would be happy to participate in your tender process if that’s required. Having been successful in many Sealed Bid Tenders and E-Auctions we understand that process but also fully appreciate the need for accountability and openness.

Machinery procurement is a major cost for all businesses but maintaining that equipment is also vital to keep budgets low. Our specialist engineers know the importance of keeping your equipment in a safe condition to ensure public safety but also how to prolong its viable working life so you get the most out of your investment.

NHS & Care Sector

Caring for the sick or elderly brings it’s own problems. Increased vulnerability to infections means you need good quality, proven sanitisers and bactericides. We have a number of products which have been tested and meet the strict BSEN1276 requirements. BSEN 1276 is a test of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas. The Steri-Solv range of products in particular have a powerful cleaning action against spore forming bacteria including Clostridium Difficile (c-diff), E Coli, MRSA, Pseudomonas, Aeruginosa, Enterococcus Hirae and all Gram Positive and Gram Negative bacteria.

Machines, particularly vacuums, fitted with High-efficiency particulate air or HEPA filtration systems can complement the chemicals you by controlling airborne micro-organisms this is beneficial for asthma and allergy sufferers and patients alike, because the HEPA filter traps the fine particles it will also remove airborne bacterial and viral organisms and, therefore, infection

Like all businesses the NHS and care homes are not immune to cost cutting exercises. We can help with budgets by helping you to prepare cleaning schedules to ensure efficiency and by recommending the very latest in dilution technology to give your staff the right chemical at the correct dilution every time.

Leisure Industry

Leisure centres, gyms and sports facilities are high traffic areas and as such cleanliness and safety are paramount.  Capital have vast experience within this industry and can help provide a hygienic and clean environment for service users and staff alike.

Swimming pools can often be a cause for concern as maintaining the balance between water and chemicals can be problematic.  However, our experience and knowledge ensures you can maintain your poolside safely keeping it in pristine condition.

Leisure centres have long opening hours and therefore require cleaning as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Our high traffic washroom dispensing systems can be refilled quickly and effectively saving money and ensuring light work of the dirtiest changing room or gymnasium.

We sell products that can be easily transported to site and used by any operative regardless of skill level, whilst still remaining environmentally friendly.

Some older buildings with porous concrete walkways can be particularly challenging with some of the malodours that can be found. Working in conjunction with our suppliers we recommend chemicals from the Eco Logic range which promotes concentrated chemicals that are biodegradable whilst still remaining highly effective.

Working outside and in tight spaces can be particularly challenging, however we are increasingly introducing battery powered machinery enabling staff to work in many difficult conditions independently of a power supply.  Our range of ProTeam back pack vacuums and accessories make light work of staircases in flats making a once arduous task easy and more manageable.
