Keeping Custodial Closets Clean

Share these tips to help your customers keep custodial closets clean and organized

Cleaning a floor with a mop.

With the new year fast approaching, it’s time for your customers to reevaluate the products in their cleaning routine and custodial closet. With the amount of cleaning supplies and equipment needed to deliver an effective clean, custodial closets can quickly become overcrowded and disorganized. Share these tips with your customers to help them refresh their custodial closets:

Assess Cleaning and Maintenance Programs

It’s important to review facility maintenance programs regularly and make adjustments based on each facility’s unique needs. Encourage your customers to assess whether the products in their cleaning program need to be updated to help address cleaning and maintenance challenges.

Consider Multi-Purpose Cleaning Products

Cleaning products can either be single or multi-purpose. Adding a multi-purpose disinfectant to their cleaning routine can help your customers reduce the number or products needed to complete various cleaning tasks, while single purpose disinfectants should only be used as directed.

For example, bleach is one of the most common and relied-upon cleaning and disinfecting solutions. While chlorine bleach is certainly effective at removing stains and disinfecting surfaces when used properly, it is not safe for all environments. When using bleach, it’s important to ensure users are properly trained on safe use, including how to properly dilute it with water.
