Setting the Standard in Green Cleaning

The cleaning industry offers a myriad of cleaning products, all claiming to deliver the best performance and longest-lasting solution. However, these conventional cleaning products come with environmental concerns—at a much higher cost for you. With today’s increasing demands to “go green” and make a sustainable contribution to the environment, green cleaning solutions are flooding the industry. How do you choose one that’s right for your facility?

Advance’s EcoFlex™ System, introduced in 2009, is a new cleaning technology that achieves both environmentally sustainable cleaning methods as well as the highest standards of effective cleaning. The EcoFlex System is designed to save you time, use fewer machines and reduce water and detergent consumption. With the touch of a button, you can effortlessly switch between chemical-free, water-only cleaning and varying degrees of detergent, down pressure and flow rates. Compared to conventional scrubbing—which can often use excess water—the EcoFlex System’s ultra-low-flow dispensing feature cuts water usage by up to 70 percent. The simple controls and operation of the EcoFlex System take the hassle out of cleaning so you won’t have to hesitate to make adjustments for higher sanitary standards, different surface types or unexpected cleaning challenges.

The EcoFlex System is defined by flexibility and allows you to get more out of one machine. Every cleaning challenge is different and requires varying cleaning methods; why waste time and money on multiple pieces of equipment? The EcoFlex System allows you to develop a cleaning routine that works for your facility and to make quick adjustments that will help you get the most out of all of your resources—from water and detergent to time and equipment.

The bottom line? The EcoFlex System delivers efficient results for the toughest cleaning challenges, while allowing you to clean green.
