Meet the Newest Member of Your Cleaning Team: The Nilfisk SC50 Autonomous Floor Scrubber

Guest Blog By: Nilfisk  |  February 18, 2021

In the wake of COVID-19, cleaning teams face more pressure than ever to clean quickly and effectively. Beyond the basics of ensuring facilities are cleaned to the desired standard, cleaners are quite literally tasked with ensuring the health and safety of everyone who enters a facility.

At the same time, workforce challenges continue. Cleaning teams often work at a staffing rate of only 70-75% and the employee turnover rate can be as high as 200%.

These factors combined have led more organizations to embrace autonomous cleaning solutions as a way to stretch their cleaning dollar further.

Understanding Aerosolized Transmission

COVID-19 has changed the way managers think about office facilities; as workers shifted to working from home because of various state mandates, these managers have wrestled with ways of keeping staff safe once employees eventually return to the workplace. Some advocate unrealistic measures, like blocking off huge swaths of an office building, or attempting to create traffic flow patterns by taping off access to areas. Some look to eliminate conference rooms or common areas. But others look to significantly reduce risks by addressing the source of aerosol transmission of pathogens and viruses—indoor air.

Why Choose Dilution Control?

By: WAXIE Editorial Staff  |  October 8, 2020

There are three common methods of purchasing cleaning chemicals: ready-to-use (RTU), bulk concentrates and dilution control systems.

And while they all have their benefits and uses, when possible, dilution control of chemicals is the most advantageous method you can use.

Dilution control provides you with the most cost-effective use of chemicals; reduced “re-cleaning” because the cleaning job is done with the right dilution the first time; and reduction of hazards because the system, not the people, handles the concentrated chemicals.

Guest Post By: Amy Milshtein from Kaivac  |  September 24, 2020

Cleaning public restrooms remains one of the most important jobs for maintenance workers. There's plenty of research about the benefits, both real and perceived, of a clean, fresh-smelling public bathroom. Past studies show that unpleasant restroom experiences creates negative perceptions and a potential loss of customers and sales. And bathroom dangers, like contracting streptococcus, staphylococcus, E. coli and hepatitis A, present real public health risks.

Now add the threat of contracting COVID-19 to the mix and cleaning public toilets has never been more important to human health and economic stability.

Here's what to consider when looking at your restroom cleaning schedule in the age of Coronavirus.

17 Tips for Chemical Safety

Guest Blog By: Jessica Clifton with ReAgent  |  August 13, 2020

Not all chemicals need special handling or storage because not all chemicals are harmful, but toxic, corrosive, flammable, and explosive chemicals, for example, need special care and the proper safety precautions.

Extremely hazardous chemicals might require handlers to wear personal protective equipment such as goggles, rubber gloves, and aprons, and storing hazardous chemicals can also require special types of containers as well as environment control. This type of chemical is typically only handled in the workplace.

Disinfectant Applicators: Electrostatic vs. Non-Electrostatic Sprayer Devices

By: WAXIE Editorial Staff  |  July 30, 2020

When considering how to most effectively clean surfaces, workspaces, and all of the areas where a deep and thorough cleaning and disinfecting is of concern, traditional methods such as dusting and spray and wipe cleaning just may not be enough. Wet surface cleaning doesn’t clean hard to reach areas where harmful bacteria may reside. Unless cleaning cloths are changed out and cleaned on a regular basis they do little more than spread the surface soil around. Dry dusting can spread dirt and particulates back into the air to settle onto other surfaces with contaminates.

For areas that require a deep and thorough cleaning designed to eliminate and kill all bacteria and germs from surfaces, electrostatic disinfection is an effective method of applying disinfectants, cleaners and sanitizers to the entire surface needing to be sanitized and cleaned.
