How to Choose the Right Cleaning Products
‘Does it clean well?’ is the first question to ask when choosing the right cleaning product. While high performance remains key, there are other factors to consider:
Is it versatile?
There are instances where speciality products will be required. However, all-purpose products and multi-surface products reduce operational costs. They simplify staff training and stockholding, while all but eliminating the wastage of products purchased but not used.
Will it increase efficiency?
Products must be effective but must also save time. Bio-enzyme cleaners continue cleaning long after application, referred to as residual cleaning. They contain micro-organisms which can penetrate small crevices and cracks to eliminate dirt which conventional chemical cleaners cannot.
Is it easy to use?
One should lean towards simple- and short-, rather than complicated cleaning processes which may lead to errors in application.
Is it cost-effective?
As the saying goes, “less is more”. Bio-enzyme products are water-soluble and can be readily diluted to match the level of soiling to be cleaned – higher concentration for more waste and vice versa. In addition, lower product volume saves on packaging, transportation and storage costs.
Is it safe?
Harmful chemicals, such as bleach, phosphate, or ammonia, can be toxic or can ruin certain surfaces. Bio-enzyme cleaners are non-toxic, non-volatile, non-corrosive and biodegradable.
Balancing price, performance and sustainability can be a daunting task. Asking the right questions will help you choose the right cleaning products.
