Prochem puts pressure onbetter cleaning performance

Prochem Europe hasintroduced induction drive pump technology to its popular Steempro rangeof carpet and upholstery cleaning machines.

Pump failure is the mostcommonly-perceived nuisance for the professional cleaner, particularlyhalf way through a job.

Thats why, after extensiveservice trials, Prochem has changed the pumps on its successful SteemproPowermax and Powerplus models to 150psi induction drive pumps asstandard fitments.

"Traditionally, pumps ofthis kind fail because of worn carbon brush wear," explains ProchemEquipment Product Manager John Hattersley. "The outcome is usuallycostly and loses time on the job.

"Induction pumps enable adrive shaft to turn using opposing magnets and without the need forcarbon brushes."

The good news for Steempropurchasers is a quieter and more efficient motor designed to runcontinuously, without the need for a pressure switch. Pump pressure isgreater than with carbon brush pumps and with its own cooling fan, thenew induction model does away with overheating issues.

Existing Steempro users arenot missing out. The new 150psi induction drive pumps can be easilyretro-fitted into older machines.

Help Protect Your Home Against Burglary

There is no foolproof way to protect your home against a break-in, as a determined thief will find a way, but certainsteps will help deter it. Consider the following:

article continues below

Install motion-sensing lights: These can be a great way to increase security without having to leave your outside lights on all night. Use them in any shadowy area where a possible intruder may linger.Or install long-lasting LED lights:Leave them on all night, as modern LEDS are both bright and energy-saving (e.g., a 13-watt LED often puts out as much light as a 100-watt incandescent), and can last for years.Maintain your landscaping: Dont let overgrown shrubs give a possible criminal a place to hide. Keep trees and shrubs near the house neatly trimmed and be on the lookout for footprints near windows or trampled planting beds.Keep valuables out of sight: Put away electronics or other valuables whenever practical. Consider mounting large items such as TVs or artwork where there is no direct sightline to a window or keep drapes or blinds drawn.Your house never goes on vacation: A vacation can make your home an easy target. Never post on social media sites that you are going away. To deter trouble, invest in inexpensive timers, which can be set up with staggered timing on multiple lamps and in multiple rooms to mimic a realistic lighting pattern. You can also invest in a "fake TV", an LED light array thatleft on at nightsimulates the changing images and light patterns from a TV set.Also visit the post office or fill out a form online to have your mail held while youre away. Talk to your neighbors to let them know youll be gone, and if your trip overlaps with trash day, ask if they can move your bins out for pickup and take them in afterward.Install fake security cameras: these realistic looking cameras mounted outside your home can make your home appear to be under surveillance, and they cost less than $10 each.Place security-alarm signs around your yard, and security-alarm stickers in your window as a deterrent.Start a Neighborhood Watchprogram with your neighbors.

Upgrade door locks: Add dead bolts to any doors that dont have them. Dead bolts are significantly harder to force open than the more common spring bolts found in many doorknobs.Fortify windows: Glass windows are one of the most vulnerable areas of any home and intruders often target windows if doors are locked and secured. Whenever youre away or asleep, close them and install locks on any windows that dont have them. You can also get security window film designed to hold broken glass together. The films prevent shattered glass from flying into the house, reducing potential injury. Tests have shown that windows protected with security window film can deter intruders for as long as two minutes-giving police additional response time. Security window films also reject up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays, reducing the effects of fading on your furnishings, and block Infrared (IR) rays, keeping heat out of your house.

Cleaning with Allergies - Quick Tips

Assail (and remove it), don't inhale it! Here's how:

blog continues below

Use a high quality low-moisture steam vapor cleaning machine (example, not an endorsement) since steam vapor deep cleans and sanitizes without chemicals, and kills dustmites, bedbugs, etc. Steam vapor also helps remove protein allergens to avoid triggering allergic reactions.Steam VaporBrush the dog (or cat) regularly outdoors so hair and dander does not shed indoors.Use large entrance mats to stop dust at the door.Use a vacuum that traps rather than blows dust.Use a duster that removes rather than redistributes dust (a damp cloth, microfiber cloth, Swiffer-type duster all work well).Use a high-efficiency filter on the central heat/ac to capture airborne allergens and run the fan constantly to maintain air cleanliness.Initially, wear an N95 dust mask and have the kids wear them during cleaning until dust is under better control.
