As compared, Milano’s one-time investment of $272 (AED999) for the water purifier along with a one-year free service and three years warranty provides quick ROI.

Kärcher

Kärcher has a cleaning product for every use, and a few more launches coming up

What is your new product for this year?

Kärcher offers a wide range of cleaning solutions for both indoor and outdoor cleaning.

In terms of indoor cleaning, we provide a dedicated range of scrubber dryers purposeful for the Middle East market. Kärcher’s range of carpet cleaning machines are also provisioned for daily, interim and deep cleaning of woolen and polyester mixed surfaces that require a thorough extraction of dirt, sand and grime sediments. Steam cleaners are ideal for washrooms and shower areas that are both cross-contamination sensitive and are required to be bacteria free. For the outdoor, we have a complete range of pressure washers, suitable for hard surfaces, garbage disposal and roof top A/C units cleaning as well as an extensive range of sweepers, either manual, battery operated or diesel powered. Sweeping in the UAE shouldn’t be underestimated, as 94% of soil and dust comes from foot traffic into premises.

What are their benefits and what sets them apart from competition?

More than speaking out on a machine specification over another, at Kärcher, we are leading the way globally in terms of research, development and patents. With 1000 employees dedicated to this task. Our cleaning solutions are backed by German engineering innovation focusing on efficiency and how to achieve the best cleaning results at a lower operating cost while being sustainable at the same time.

What are some of the challenges you face across the region, please elaborate?

Our main challenge in the region is dust, and more of it. The type of dust floating around us on a daily basis, both indoor and outdoor, places enormous stress on all type of machines and specifically on the filtering systems. So machines needs to be operated within the parameters they were built for and maintained to the highest standard in order to perform at peak consistently.

Talk us through Kärcher’s future R&D plans and what the industry could next expect?

Efficiency modes are gaining popularity in our region. This is a mode that reduces all power, water and detergents consumption by 15-25% and the operator achieves the same cleaning results, this is quite a considerable gain. GCC countries are concerned about conservation of energy and saving power, water, using adequate non-harmful detergents and reducing C02 emission, and so are we.
