Putting your Mop through the Wringer

Do you know the kind of abuse your mop bucket and wringer takes on a daily basis? From dirty, filthy water to and unknown mixture of grime, questionable liquids and everything else that gets mixed in with the cleaning products, your mop bucket and wringer goes through quite a bit. And guess what? You mop is being dunked in there every single day, pushing around old dirt on to your seemingly clean floor.

How about you upgrade? How old is your mop bucket and wringer? How old is your mop? If you haven’t gotten new floor cleaning supplies in the last year, maybe it’s time to think about getting new and fresh mops and buckets. Do your mops and buckets look clean or are they caked with grime from messes past? Maybe the wheels on your mop bucket and wringer aren’t quite what they used to be?

It’s much easier getting a new mop than trying to bring back the shimmer and shine that those mop brushes once had back when they were new. After months or years of abuse, it might be time to retire some of those trusty mops in exchange for cleaner, more absorbent, new mops.

With clean cleaning supplies, you will be a much more effective and efficient cleaner, and people who see you clean will definitely take notice. So go ahead, get a new mop. Get a new mop bucket and wringer. Look and feel cleaner. You’ll thank yourself later.

Stocking up on Janitorial Supplies

When you stay ahead of the game, you can be prepared for when disaster strikes. It may seem like a simple thing to do, but stocking up on janitorial supplies is a wise decision to make. Whether you are a maintenance manager or in charge of keeping your building clean, there is nothing worse than looking for janitorial supplies you are out of and don’t have or being cautiously conservative with the small amount of supplies you already have.

Bad spills, food explosions and large messes happen and if you don’t have any products to clean it up, you will be out of luck. As you know, taking care of a mess as soon as it happens makes for not only easier cleanup, but also damage to the surface down the road. If you are stocked up on janitorial supplies, you can rest assured that you will be able to take care of any mess when it happens.

Be prepared for anything by stocking up on janitorial supplies. Sure it’s good to make promises to yourself about being prepared, but when something happens, are you going to have the janitorial weapons in your arsenal to fight the messes that seem to come from out of nowhere?

You have dusters, mops and brooms, but what about bathroom products, handles and squeegees? Take inventory now and see what you have, what you are missing, and how you can be prepared for anything that could possibly happen--you’ll be glad you did.
