Sweeping Up at the End of the 2014 NFDA Expo

Green SweeperMany people don’t realize how hard funeral directors work to keep their homes and chapels sparkling clean for the visiting public. Yes, vacuuming is part of their responsibilities (although it’s probably not in the job description when an opening is advertised).

Just as the 2014 National Funeral Directors Association expo was coming to a close, I passed the booth for Bissell’s BigGreen Commercial sweepers. I could not believe my eyes!

Ralph Burkhart with the German company Hagga was demonstrating how well this parking lot sweeper could pick up plastic bottles and aluminum cans, nut shells, and other detritus. Just a few pushes and the trash disappeared into the sweeper. He also demonstrated an indoor sweeper that also picked up an amazing amount of litter in no time.

These could be really useful at a regular home, never mind the funeral home! Watch the video and learn more at www.BissellCommercial.com.
