Floorcare Tips for Facilities Managers 22 Jan, 2018
What are your objectives for 2018? If you’re looking to improve floorcare standards in your facility, there are five ways you can increase productivity and cost-effectiveness whilst still providing outstanding cleaning results…
1. Integrate battery power into your floorcare regime
Battery power vastly improves productivity, with no need to change power socket outlets between cleaning areas. Machines featuring lithium ion batteries benefit from longer run times, such as the Valet Battery Upright vacuum cleaner, which offers 60+ minutes.
Interchangeable batteries provide further productivity by enabling longer run times. With each interchangeable battery offering 50 minutes, the Multiwash 340/Pump Battery scrubber dryer washes, scrubs and dries both hard floors and carpets in a single pass.
Battery status indicators also make it easy for teams to monitor when battery machines require recharging. And with no trailing cables, you minimise trip hazards, creating an effective solution for daytime cleaning.
2. Make sure your machine is being properly maintained
Ensure your machine is in its top condition for the New Year. Have you replaced consumables e.g. brushes? Does your machine need a service? Read ‘Do you clean your cleaning machine?’ for more information.
3. Ensure your team is properly trained on your machine
Is your team able to effectively and safely prepare, use, maintain and undertake basic troubleshooting for your machines? Refresh their knowledge by watching our product training videos.
4. Review your machines
Are you using the correct machine for each application? Does a machine need replacing?
Run regular reviews of your floorcare equipment to remain cost-effective and provide consistent, high quality floorcare results. Contact email@example.com or 02380 706600 for any queries or help with new machines.
5. Abandon the mop and bucket in confined cleaning areas
Traditionally, confined cleaning areas such as toilets and changing rooms are cleaned using a mop and bucket.
However, using a Micro Scrubber provides a more effective solution, with outstanding cleaning results. Click here for more information about Micro Scrubbers.
