The SPHERGO® Flat Surface Cleaning System from HOSPECO just added some POP. The SPHERGO system—lighter-weight cleaning tools designed to clean using less motion and less time while also reducing awkward bending—minimizes ergonomic challenges for workers who perform manual surface cleaning, vertical cleaning, and floor care. The company’s new SPHERGO POP® option provides these same ergonomic benefits but with the added benefit of no-touch disposal to prevent transmission of germs to the user or other surfaces. There is no need to touch soiled pads, keeping dirt, debris, and pathogens where they belong.
The new Press-N-Go™ base is for use with reusable microfiber pads for floor care and surface cleaning. The pad presses onto the SPHERGO POP base and adheres with a hook-and-loop closure. When it’s time to clean and launder the pad, simply squeeze the release lever to pop the pad—touch free—from the base. Then press on a new pad and go.
The new Tuck-N-Go™ base is for use with wet or dry, non-woven, bi-fold disposable wiper or reusable wiper for specific cleaning tasks. While designed for use with 8″ x 11″ wipers, such as the SPHERGO POP® Dry Cleaning Cloths, it accommodates most disposable or reusable wipers that can be folded to size. The “teeth” of the tool will hold the wiper securely in place during use. Wipers are put in place on the surface of the tool and the edges wrap up and tuck under a parallel plate that sits just above the cleaning surface. Users just press the two plates together and the wiper is locked in place. When cleaning is complete, squeeze the release lever and the plates separate and the pad slides—touch free—away from the base. The “pop” eliminates touching the dirty wiper and the “poof” or cloud of dust and debris associated with some cleaning tools.
Press-N-Go and Tuck-N-Go, like the original SPHERGO system, feature a patent-pending spherical ball handle proven to reduce wear and tear on the body caused by repetitive motion and awkward angles normally experienced during manual cleaning processes. The ball design allows for easy grasping and enables the user to keep the wrist in a more neutral position. The SPHERGO cleaning tool’s ball also accommodates an extension pole in various lengths to facilitate floor cleaning or to clean hard-to-reach areas, minimizing stooping and reaching.
By design, the tool replaces all rag-in-hand cleaning and then extends to facilitate cleaning whatever is hard to reach. Whether in the hand or with the extended-reach pole or telescoping pole, SPHERGO minimizes the physical effort required to effectively clean flat surfaces.
