Dusmo is a very simple yet effective product that quickly cleanses hard floor surfaces and controls dust whilst sweeping. Dusmo is used in varied commercial situations from church halls to builder’s merchants, construction sites, power stations, garages, warehouses, workshops, schools, public buildings and other heavy industries.
A small amount of Dusmo is scattered on the floor and is then swept along. The active ingredients within the compound attracts dust whilst the granules of Dusmo gently rub surface dirt from the floor, leaving a clean finish. A single bag can treat up to 300m3 depending on the condition of the floor, making it very economical.
Dusmo products are made from recycled and renewable ingredients that are naturally kind to the environment.
If you have a problem cleansing your dusty and dirty floors or are worried about staff/public exposure to airborne dust in high traffic areas, or stock damage due to dust settlement, treating your floors with Dusmo may be the solution.
Dusmo – An old established brand
We are proud of the fact that we are one of the oldest branded products in the UK. Dusmo was primarily introduced to combat health issues caused by infections and diseases carried by airborne dust. This was a particular problem prevalent in the expanding towns and cities of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Minimising the occurrence of such fine dust ensured that these diseases could be more easily controlled. The common dust issues of the day were especially apparent in schools and colleges throughout the country, where most classrooms floors and halls were made from stone tile and wooden floors that produced high levels of dust underfoot. Mopping these surfaces was not entirely suitable as it did not remove the problem, so a more effective way of collecting the dust had to be established.
Soon after its introduction the “Dusmo Method” of sweeping soon became popular and within a very short space of time Dusmo was being used in a most schools throughout the UK. Soon after the introduction of the Dusmo brand in 1906, Dusmo gained the Royal Warrant in 1909 and only relinquished it in the late 1960’s due to a merger with a competitor of the day.
These days Dusmo is as relevant now as it was over a century ago. The idea of collecting potential airborne dust has been taken up by a variety of industries where dust can be a real issue to health. The simple act of collecting dirt and fine dust from the surface of the floor quickly and safely, can never be underestimated and that is why our products are still in demand today.
