Can floor cleaning be gentle and sustainable?
Cleaning work must be carried out continuously in all public buildings. Due to the increasing contracting of building cleaning companies (external cleaning), the focus is no longer on the procurement of cleaning agents, but on the consideration of environmental protection requirements in the tenders and in the contract design itself. A legal framework for the admissibility of environment-related tender criteria is provided by the Act against Restraints of Competition (GWB). Pursuant to Section 97 (4) GWB, public contracting authorities now have the option of specifying environmental criteria for the execution of the contract. Chemical agents may only be used to a very limited extent. The vacuum blasting technology from systeco fulfils all environmental requirements and can therefore be used in all areas.
