How Clean Is Your Shopping Trolley?

Supermarket shopping trolleys and Shopping baskets are just as much visiting cards as they are rolling sales drivers for your business. When shopping, customers prefer the trolleys to be hygienic and clean,

According to researchers shopping trollies can have more germs than public restroom facilities. There are sanitizing wipes available, but did you know that for the wipe to sanitise the area it must have a dwell time of up to 12 minutes while wet. We can carry out professional Trolley and Basket  Deep Cleaning as a one off service or as part of a regular scheduled program on your premises out of hours with minimum disruption to your customers.
