The beginning of the year is the perfect time to look at your cleaning schedule and techniques to reevaluate your practices. If you want a cleaner, and consequentially healthier, 2020 then check out these 10 commercial cleaning tips and facts to help you reach your cleaning goals for the New Year.
1. Organize Your Storage Space
It all starts where your cleaning supplies are stored. A disorganized and dirty janitorial closet is the wrong way to start your New Year's Resolution. You'll want to properly throw out what you no longer need, make sure every cleaning chemical is labeled appropriately (it's required!), and organize your items by frequency of use. Supplies you use the most should be within hands reach.
Safety Data Sheets should all be in one place and your cleaning crew should know where that place is in case of an emergency. For more tips on organizing your janitorial closet, click here.
2. All-Purpose Cleaners Don't Do It All
The term "all-purpose" or "multi-purpose" can be misleading. Sure it can be used on just about any surface, but that doesn't mean it will do the job well. For instance if you're using an all-purpose cleaner to try and battle tough kitchen grease, you're going have a bad time simply because it will take you a lot longer.
All-purpose cleaners are great for general cleaning but we manufacturers put ingredients in kitchen degreasers that are made to tackle kitchen grease. It's crazy, we know! The same goes for window cleaners, bathroom cleaners, disinfectant cleaners... you get the idea.
