Just in time for back-to-school season, we’re taking a look at the janitorial services industry. Whether you run your own janitorial business or work on a professional cleaning crew, working in schools presents a unique set of challenges to keep the grounds clean and safe. To help your crew gear up for the new academic year ahead, we’ve put together a list of essential cleaning equipment.
Mop and Bucket
We’re starting with the basics. In addition to commercial mops and buckets for water and solutions, durable containers for supplies makes it easier for your crews to save time and work more efficiently.
Wet Floor Sign
Keep crews, students and faculty safe with clear signage around wet areas. This is critical in school environments where floors tend to be slick, and children may be moving quickly through hallways and open areas.
You want to invest in high quality, powerful cleaning solutions — ideally with a low overall toxicity. At times, that can feel like a difficult line to tow, but there are options available. For example, BotaniClean offers the best of both worlds as a powerful eco-conscious broad-spectrum antimicrobial that.
Carpet Cleaning Machine
Whether you need to complete a deep clean or a simple spot treatment, there is a wide range of carpet cleaning machines available to suit your needs. Name brands like Prochem and Sandia are widely recognized in the industry for their dependability and versatility.
Ideal for wiping down electronics and other sensitive surfaces, these soft synthetic cloths work by generating static electricity that attracts dust and dirt. They are also both more absorbent and 60% faster to dry than traditional cotton cleaning rags.
Heavy-Duty Trash Bags
This one might seem simple enough, but there’s more to it. With the volume of trash and debris accumulated on a school campus, it’s important to invest in durable, high quality trash bags that can stand up to the daily demands without tearing, stretching or breaking.
