Almost 20 million people are without sufficient income to afford essential items like beds and this means there are over 400,000 children without their own bed in the UK. As part of their mission to End Furniture Poverty, FRC Group had already commenced a manual mattress cleaning programme to treat unwanted, great quality mattresses which was very time and labour intensive. As an innovative company they wanted to develop the optimum solution to deliver high quality, clean and fresh mattresses to those most in need so have designed, developed and now launched the first automated mattress UltraClean machine.
The automated UltraClean machine line processes up to 8 mattresses per hour, meaning huge volumes of mattresses can be given a new and extended life, and good as new, clean mattresses can make their way to those in need as quickly as possible.
At the heart of the solution is the UltraClean seven stage process. The process ensures high quality, pre-loved mattresses, which may have been destined for landfill or broken down into parts for recycling, are UltraCleaned to remove:
- Bed bugs and fleas
The mattresses are restored to extremely high cleanliness levels and good as new. This is great news for the environment too. Every mattress which is reused saves 79.5 kg of CO2 which is the equivalent of taking 14 cars off the road for a day.
CEO of FRC Group, Shaun Doran commented:
“We are delighted to introduce our UltraClean Machine. This is the first of its kind and will make such a huge difference in our mission to End Furniture Poverty. Those in need will receive high quality mattresses, and at the same time this will have a positive impact on the environment, as disposal or recycling is not needed. “
The UltraClean Mattress Cleaning Machine is the latest in a long line of innovations for FRC Group to ensure those who need essential items, such as mattresses and other furniture items, can have them.
