When purchasing cleaning supplies for commercial purposes, it is important to take several factors into account. The first is what cleaning tools you are actually responsible for buying, and what cleaning equipment the janitorial service will provide, if you use an outside janitorial service. This article will denote the cleaning supplies for commercial purposes.
What to buy
Often, an outside janitorial service will bring everything or almost everything with them, so you won't have to buy much. Otherwise, if you have an in-house cleaning service or your cleaners want you to provide the supplies, then there are many things that you need to know.
Deciding on the product
The first thing to consider when buying commercial cleaning supplies is exactly what you need to buy. You will, of course, need basic things like vacuums, brooms and dust pans. You will need to be sure that the vacuum you are buying is a heavy duty one, that is going to work on the type of floors in your office or building. Equipment for tile floors or carpets Most commercial buildings have either some type of tile floors or some kind of industrial commercial carpets, that are heavy-duty and stain-resistant. Hence, you will need to be sure that you buy the equipment that works on these floors.
Disinfectant cleaning products You will also need disinfectant cleaning products in order to make sure that the areas like bathrooms and sinks and seating areas are thoroughly cleaned. Commercial buildings and applications have a large number of people go through them, so it is essential to properly clean the buildings of germs and dirt.
Features of the cleaning supplies
Once you have a list of the basic supplies that you need for your business, the next step is to consider the other important features you want to look for in your cleaning supplies.
Beware of chemical reactions
Many cleaning chemicals, especially those used in commercial applications, are strong chemicals like ammonia and bleach. This can contribute to poor in-door air quality.
So at a very minimum, you need to make sure that the products you are buying won't react badly to each other, and cause chemical reactions that can be dangerous to breathe-in.
Green cleaning products
It is a good idea, when possible and when cost allows, to consider opting for green cleaning products in order to protect the environment, and make it safer to breathe inside.
