The international cleaning company, which first deployed its products to clean the mighty Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro in 1980, and more than 140 other cultural monuments around the world since then, now has the rather easier task of helping Banbury BID (Business Improvement District) spruce up the town centre.
The Banbury Clean project will see the Kärcher Centre Banbury team use their hot water pressure washer to clean central locations of the community. The aim is to clean up the area to increase the aesthetic appeal, and provide shoppers and visitors with confidence to return to Banbury town centre and support local businesses.
Jo Holland, Banbury BID Manager, said: “As we ease out of the lockdown, we want people to feel confident to come into Banbury town centre. We have been inspired by the way many of our local businesses and organisations have adapted, but it has been tough. Now more than ever, we need people to shop and support local where possible.
“We’ve pledged to make Banbury more vibrant and attractive for everyone and now is a good opportunity for us to spruce up our historic market town.”
To help with the clean-up operation Banbury BID is working alongside Kärcher, world leaders for cleaning technology with an array of cleaning solutions. An experienced team from Kärcher Center Banbury will begin cleaning the Market Square but will move onto subsequent areas over the coming weeks.
Tom Mitchell, Kärcher Center Banbury Manager, said: “We wanted to do all we can to support our local town and help make a difference with the array of different cleaning solutions that Kärcher has to offer. We are proud to be working with Banbury BID in an effort to clean up Banbury town and make visitors feel safe and confident in returning”.
