Leaks and spills are a regular occurrence, but the cleaning-up and disposal of these fluids involves little more than blue roll or rags, sand, granules and drip trays.
These are affordable means of dealing with the problem, but they can be inefficient – neither cleaning nor absorbing particularly well. It is also worth noting that oily wipes are classed as hazardous materials and must be stored and disposed of as such and when people are busy, this can sometimes be overlooked.
Mewa’s Multitex absorbent mats are designed so that fluid is transported immediately from the outside into the absorbent inner core. A Multitex mat can absorb up to three litres of fluids before needing to be replaced – eliminating the need for sand, granules and drip trays. In addition, cleaning wipes from Mewa are said to absorb up to 250 per cent of their own weight in fluid and are highly tear resistant. As such, they can soak up large volumes of liquids quickly.
Because the Mewa service includes pick up, wash and replacement, garages will never be without a mat or wipe to hand when they need it and there’s no wasted time reordering supplies. As part of its service, a safety container is also provided for the safe storage and transport of the wipes and mats. This means that oily wipes and mats, classified as hazardous waste, are simply and safely stored, ensuring garages remain compliant.
