Mewa wipes contribute to Coronavirus employee safety

Published:  27 April, 2020

Workplace cleaning products are gaining new relevance in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic, including wipes and rags for cleaning tools and machines. According to textile management company MEWA, demand is impacting on the availability of some types of cleaning wipes, but also how they are used in the workplace.

Günes Yenen, MEWA UK Country Manager, said: “Paper towels, especially blue roll, are currently in high demand, leading to limited supplies and longer delivery times.”

Other types are still widely available though he said: “The complete service cleaning wipe system from MEWA ensures that hygienic industrial cleaning wipes are available at any time when needed and that they are safely stored after use, ready for collection, cleaning and re-delivery.”

MEWA supplies companies from 45 locations across Europe with work and protective clothing, cleaning cloths, oil collecting mats and floor mats - including care, maintenance, warehousing and logistics.

Günes continued: “With this approach to managed rental, workplaces receive their cloths in an airtight MEWA security container, the SaCon. After use, a cloth is simply thrown into a second safety container. When it is full, it will be picked up and fresh towels and containers will be provided. At MEWA’s advanced washing facility, the towels are washed at a temperature of 90 ° C for at least 15 minutes, whereby all germs and microorganisms are completely deactivated.  

Günes added: “The Coronavirus has not impacted our door to door delivery and because the towels are washed, and reused up to 50 times, in our own facility, there are no supply chains issues.  We can ensure that workplaces have a permanent supply of hygienic cleaning wipes and a safe storage system for both clean and dirty wipes.”
