The Cleaning Show Adds More Sparkle With New Window And Carpet Cleaning Zones, The Cleaning Show Clinic, Innovation Awards And Packed Conference Programme

10 January 2019

Organisers of The Cleaning Show, the UK’s biggest cleaning, hygiene and waste management exhibition (Excel, London March 19-21), have announced more details of the event.

In recognition of the massive contribution window cleaning makes to the wider cleaning industry, the 2019 Cleaning Show will feature a special zone dedicated to the sector for the first time.

The Window Cleaning Village will be for anyone connected to commercial window cleaning which will give them the chance to try out the latest products on offer, attend workshops, and network with equipment providers.

The Window Cleaning Village will also be the location for a new twist on the usual window cleaning challenge with the launch of the Window Cleaning World Cup sponsored by Unger.

Adjudicated by the Federation of Window Cleaners (FWC), there will be an international campaign and prize fund to encourage more cleaners from overseas to get involved.

Competitors from around the world are formally being invited to enter, and they’ll get the chance to win the first ever Window Cleaning World Cup and prize of £1,000.

It’s also hoped by attracting more global participants that someone may finally come close to beating Terry ‘Turbo’ Burrows 10-year world record of 9.14 seconds.

In addition, organisers are looking to encourage more women cleaners to take part, highlighting that Deborah Morris’ record time of 16.28 seconds has now stood for over eight years.

A similar dedicated space is also being developed for carpet cleaners. Called The Carpet Cleaning Village, this zone is being designed for anyone connected to the carpet cleaning industry and carpet cleaning supply chain.
