Cleaning advice

Cleaning is one of the controls that we use to ensure that your business is in an appropriate and consistent state to carry out its function correctly.

The Holchem team, from sales to scientists, work closely with businesses to advise on all aspects of hygiene including: the selection and application of cleaning and disinfection products, dosing and control, pathogen management, allergen management, cleaning advice, hygiene management systems, training and system audit and review. Holchem aim to ensure that all customers are aware of what would be regarded as cleaning and disinfection best practice for their circumstances.


Local Support Teams

Our management and technical support teams offer expert advice, helping you to deliver the best possible hygiene programme to suit your environment. Your Holchem account manager provides the main point of contact for coordination, management, reporting and review of all support and services we provide. Our customer support advisors carry out planned visits against a structured plan which includes audits, equipment servicing and colleague training. They also provide the first line of contact for requested support, such as investigations or breakdowns. Alongside this service engineers provide dosing and application expertise, whilst management teams provide an additional resource and wealth of experience.


Central Support

The Technical Centre team back up the field-based teams with analytical and problem solving expertise for our customers and is sta­ffed by scientists with experience in a wide range of fields, including Product Development, Scientific Investigation, Chemical Legislation and Quality Control.

The state-of-the-art laboratory at our head office has access to a range of investigative tools including FTIR and X-ray Spectroscopy, Force Gauges and Surface Tension measurement as well as traditional wet chemistry. A purpose built ‘wet test’ laboratory allows us to simulate many site cleaning operations and is used for product evaluation and for customer training.
