Clean India Week
Live cleaning session at Goregaon BEST Depot
Celebrating ‘Clean India Week’ from December 2 to 7, 2013, Clean India Team of Virtual Info Systems took further initiative in creating awareness by organizing a live cleaning session at Goregaon Bus Depot. Karcher Cleaning Systems Private Limited & Kaarya Facilities and Services Pvt Ltd joined hands with Clean India team in the cleaning process.
Shripat Kare, Deputy Chief Engineer, Western Suburb, BEST, Incharge of six depots said, “A welcome step from Clean India team and its partners! By cleaning the fleet, buses, restrooms and toilets they have showcased possible improvements in cleaning and maintenance which usually is done by our engineering department.” Talking about the B.E.S.T practices & expenses on cleaning, “We spend 1/4th of the total expenditure on cleaning & maintenance,” added Kare.
While the eight member team of Kaarya headed by Nilesh, Senior Manager – Kaarya Facilities cleaned the toilets and restrooms at the depot, Karcher team headed by AK Sahu, Territorial Manager – Karcher, cleaned the buses. “We have used R6 chemical, perfect to clean the toilet seats and floor, R1 to sanitize and R5 liquid for air freshness,” added Nilesh.
Sahu said, “Along with RM 81 liquid in 1/3 ratio with water, we have used 3-phase SD 7/17 car washer that took around half-an-hour to clean a whole bus. The good thing is that one janitor is enough to do the job within the prescribed time bringing extra gloss on the buses.” Talking about the demo, “Thanks to the Clean India team, this is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the latest product benefits to our end consumers and we would like to do so more in future as part of our CSR.”
