Try these waste-reducing cleaning tips to make your commercial cleaning regimen kinder to the environment.
Use Microfibre Cloths Instead of Paper Towel
Replace paper products with reusable, washable products in your cleaning routine. Microfibre cloths are a great alternative to paper towels. Microfibre cloths clean more effectively and do not leave paper bits behind the way that paper towels can, plus they are machine washable and can be reused over and over again.
Opt for Natural Cleaning Products
Cleaning products that do not contain chemicals are not only better for the environment, they are safer for you, your staff, and your visitors too. Many commercial cleaning products are packed with chemicals, the fumes of which can be harmful, particularly for those with allergies and/or respiratory issues. Fortunately, there are many natural cleaning products that are effective and do not contain harsh chemicals. Opt for a natural, environmentally-friendly cleaning solution and you can feel good about the safety of your staff and clients, as well as a reduced environmental impact.
Buy Products in Bulk
Buying cleaning products and supplies in bulk helps reduce the amount of packaging you use overall. Bonus? You’ll get a better deal and save money, too. Whenever you can, buy your cleaning products in bulk–get that big bottle of surface cleaner that will last you 6 months instead of the little one that will only last you 2 months.
High Quality Mop & Broom
Invest in a good, high quality broom and mop so that they will last a long time and you won’t have to replace them. This reduces the waste of throwing away your old broom and mop and saves you the trouble of replacing them often. Putting more money into good quality cleaning equipment will save you money in the long term because you won’t have to pay for replacement nearly as often, and it significantly reduces waste as well.
