Hard floors are common in many commercial facilities, requiring weekly and in some cases daily maintenance. Mopping is an age-old floor cleaning technique and is still one of the most common methods to clean commercial hard floors.
When the cord on your equipment doesn’t quite reach the outlet, extension cords offer a way for you to work beyond the equipment’s standard power cord length. Extension cords provide electric power to a device, or in this case, piece of janitorial cleaning equipment when its own power cord does not reach an electrical outlet. Extension cords enable staff to work beyond the machine’s typical reach for improved productivity. Without extension cords, your staff would have to transfer your equipment’s cord to a new outlet more frequently, reducing productivity and increasing overall cleaning times. But if they are not used with the proper precautions, they can be extremely dangerous.
Germs are everywhere. They are a part of everyday life and are found in and on people, in the air, in the soil, and in water. Some germs are not harmful but others can lead to serious illness and infections, reiterating the importance of cleaning to reduce germs. The germiest parts in any facility are the areas that are most frequently visited or surfaces that are most commonly touched by people. This is because people are carriers of millions of germs. Germs can not travel and infect people on their own. They depend on people, the environment, or equipment to spread.
