The 3 Do’s of cleaning with janitorial cleaning supplies!

Clean surfaces, then disinfect!

Cleaning a surface is an important step in physically removing any dirt and debris before the disinfecting begins, ensuring that specks of dust or unseen dirt are not hidden from the disinfecting solution. Additionally, it will take a shorter amount of time to fully sanitize your surfaces without debris getting in the way.


Do wear protective clothing!

Prevent harsh body rashes and burns and invest in disposable masks, gloves, and goggles. Additionally, be sure to wash your hands after cleaning to get rid of any harsh chemicals on your skin. Better to be safe than sorry!


Do clean floors regularly!

It’s essential to maintain your floors squeaky cleaning during periods of high traffic and COVID-19 times. How frequently you clean your floors will depend on the amount of traffic your building is subjected to.


The 3 Don’ts of cleaning with janitorial cleaning supplies

Don’t keep chemicals in the reach of children and pets!

While our janitorial supplies are mostly used in commercial areas and facilities, there will be times when they can be accessible to children and animals if not stored properly. Always place disinfecting supplies on a high shield, or locked in closets and cabinets. 


Don’t keep supplies in areas with extreme temperatures!

Exposing supplies to extreme temperatures, whether they are below or above normal temperatures, increases the risk of accidentally exploding. Additionally, in some cases, the supplies will lose their efficiency and will not be able to disinfect areas to their maximum capacity. Cold garages or water heaters are a definite no for proper storage.


Don’t skip reading the labels!

While our supplies are LEED-certified, it is still important to handle them with caution. Before using any cleaning supplies, make sure to read the storage and warning labels, and whether they can be mixed with other chemicals as well. Taking the time to educate yourself on appropriate usage can increase the levels of sanitation while keeping you safe.


Tips on how to organize your cleaning supplies

  • Divide supplies according to tasks - dusting, stain removal or kitchen sanitization can all be placed in three separate bins to make them more accessible.

  • Assign unused areas for larger cleaning tools like vacuums or mops.

  • Label storage bins according to their function or the day that they will be used.

  • Place all-purpose cleaners in a storage basket that is readily accessible for all personnel.
