cleaning and hygiene

What do you need to ensure excellent cleaning and hygiene at your workplace?

Whether you’re undertaking your own cleaning for your office or are looking to hire a professional, there are some things you should always keep in your cleaning cupboard to ensure swift and effective cleaning takes place. Here’s a quick rundown of seven things to always have in stock in your workplace cleaning cupboard.

  1. A vacuum cleaner

A good vacuum cleaner is worth its weight in gold. Don’t scrimp on your investment for this, as a cheap and cheerful vacuum will not be able to cope with the heavy-duty work of regularly cleaning your workplace. Advanced filtration and cyclonic vacuums are a good choice if you have a lot of people working for you, as they take allergens out of the air, making a better working environment for everyone.

  1. A good mop

There are lots of different types of mops out there, so it’s important to pick one that works for you. Kentucky mops are a popular choice for cleaning large areas of hard floor, but they are more expensive to replace. For smaller areas, mops which allow cheap and regular changing of the cleaning surface are more hygienic, so look at hang on, Velcro or pocket mops as an alternative to the more traditional type.

  1. An effective mop system

The mop system is the industry name for a mop bucket, but don’t think that you can get away with using just a bucket for effective mopping. A mopping unit should have a squeezing facility, and separate compartments for clean and dirty water. If your workplace has areas requiring different levels of hygiene, it can be good to choose a multicoloured mopping system to keep areas separate, using different colours for different rooms.

  1. A cleaning trolley

A good cleaning trolley is a great way to save time and to help your cleaner take all their equipment with them from room to room. For larger premises, the NuSax cleaning trolleys are a good choice, but in a smaller office the compact Numatic cleaning carousels will do the job nicely.

  1. A broom, dustpan and brush

For cleaning of smaller areas or sweeping up loose dirt prior to mopping, a good broom and dustpan and brush are essential. Choose your broom head carefully to ensure it is suitable for the surface it will be used on; stiffer brooms are best for outdoors and rough surfaces, whereas soft brooms work best indoors. Consider choosing a long-handled dustpan and brush to save your cleaners back when picking up their sweepings.

  1. The right consumables

Consider what your cleaner will need to do their job effectively. A good multi-purpose antibacterial spray is always welcomed, as is a concentrated disinfectant product to add to their mop bucket. Consider adding spray polish if you have natural wood in the building, and a glass cleaner for windows and mirrors.

  1. The essential cleaning and hygiene supplies

Some of the basic things your cleaner will thank you for include: Cleaning cloths, sponges and scorers, refuse sacks, dusters, gloves. Get a good stock of all these items, as your cleaner will probably go through them at quite a rate!
