In a time where thorough and constant disinfecting is one of the largest tasks we face, it is important to factor in all aspects of your home, office space, production facility, warehouse, and anywhere with highly touched surfaces and continuous traffic. Businesses that operate forklifts and other industrial equipment must also consider the operator’s compartment, various controls, buttons, grab handles, and anything else that is touched repeatedly throughout a shift. Additionally, there is the forklift’s seat to consider – especially if it is made of cloth or other types of fabric. These types are unfortunately not as easy to disinfect, as a simple cleaning spray or wipe will not […]

No matter the size of your facility, cleaning your space, and cleaning it thoroughly, can be a daunting task requiring large amounts of time. With cost in mind, some businesses will resort to traditional methods, such as a mop, bucket, and broom.

Depending on the size of your facility, mop and bucket can easily take much more time than your employees have to give, with a less than satisfactory result in the end. Implementing new methods can change the way you clean, […]
