Tips for Janitorial Cleaning Companies

June 14th, 2013   •   No Comments   

Janitorial Cleaning Companies have to properly train their janitors (custodians/housekeepers) to make sure not to damage anything while performing their job. It is important for the cleaning crew to know what chemicals to use on different types of surfaces. It is even more important for them to know what is their dilution ratio. A weak chemical will not kill 100% of the bacteria and a too strong solution may be toxic.  Here are some great tips for janitorial cleaning companies.

1. What chemicals to use for mopping floors:

It is very important to know what type of floors will be mopped to know which chemicals to use:

  • Wooden floors: Use non-acid chemicals to clean them.  Use very little solution to prevent warping.
  • Tile or stone floors: Use acidic chemicals mixed with water. If you are cleaning the bathrooms, spray the chemicals and leave it for about 10 minutes before mopping. That will help kill the bacteria that have penetrated inside the grout lines.

2. What cleaning cloth to use on different surfaces:

Microfiber is the best type of cloth to use for cleaning. Microfiber cloths are able to penetrate cracks that cotton cloths and paper towels can’t reach. They can also absorb 7 to 8 times more liquid than other types of cloths and also attracts dust instead of spreading it. There are three different types of microfiber cloths that should be used to clean different types of jobs.

  • Heavy grade microfiber: Is used to remove the tough stains and dirt.
  • Medium grade microfiber: Is used to clean counter-tops, sinks.
  • Light grade microfiber: Is used to clean glass, metal, and windows.

3. Learning about green cleaning:

There is more to green cleaning than just using green cleaning products. For green cleaning it is also important to know the proper disposal of chemical products and what cleaning products to use. Microfiber products are better to use than any other products like cotton cloth and feather dusters. Make sure that the green products you buy works and are certified and approved.
