Cleaning products strike the right chord at V-Festival
19 November 2020
ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY products made by global biotech cleaning solutions provider, InnuScience, were chosen to maintain the highest standards of hygiene at major live music event V Festival.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, V-Festival, which in its heyday attracted crowds of 170,000 across two sites in Essex and Staffordshire, returned this year as a one-off digital event in August and was livestreamed as a three-part television special from the original festival site at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex. Stars headlining at the event were Olly Murs, Dizzee Rascal and Anne-Marie.
Commercial eco-friendly cleaning company, Priority Support Services, was hired by TwoFour Broadcast Ltd to manage the temporary structures at the event as well as the cleaning of Hylands House, a neo-classical villa situated on the Hylands Estate.
Owner and director of Priority Support Services, Tony White, explained: “One of the key elements of the job was to clean Hylands House where the production crew, celebrities and other VIPs were staying. It was critical that the right cleaning products were used which would protect the furnishings and flooring in particular. It was critical the owners of the Hylands Estate knew exactly what was in the products being used.
“Using the InnuScience products was wholeheartedly approved due to their environmental and quality credentials, and the transparency of the make-up of each product.
“It was an exciting challenge to ensure production crews, performers, TV presenters, security personnel and our own staff were safe and secure and knew we were in control of all cleaning and deep cleaning requirements for the event.
“The event comprised two days of setting up, building the stage and TV podiums. This was followed by two days of filming and a final day taking down and removing all evidence of the film set complete with full size stage, presenters’ areas, kitchens, a restaurant area and, of course, washroom and toilet facilities."
Paul Twiss, marketing director at InnuScience, said: “We were delighted when we heard that Priority Support Services had won this prestigious cleaning contract and that our sustainable bio based products played a key part in ensuring the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness were maintained throughout this high-profile event.
“We also value the support of Tony White and Priority Support Services as long-term users and advocates of InnuScience products.”
Mr White set up Priority Support Services – based in Rettendon, near Chelmsford - in 2015 after amassing 32 years’ experience in the soft services and facilities management industries. The company has experience across several sectors including retail, transport, aviation and leisure.
