At the start of every year, millions of people set resolutions to better themselves in the coming months. Health is clearly at the forefront of people’s minds each January as eating well and exercising more tend to top these lists. Even in the cleaning industry, health is a top concern as winter flus and colds sweep through many facilities. Many cleaning professionals have already committed to cleaning for health, but there’s always room to continue to improve your business. Here are 4 cleaning resolutions to make 2018 your cleanest, healthiest year yet.
1. Clean Hard to Reach Places
Any industry pro knows there’s more to clean than just carpets. Air vents, ductwork, lighting fixtures and more may be hard to access, but that doesn’t mean they’re not gathering dust. Capturing dust from all surfaces is important to improve Indoor Air Quality and protect those with asthma and allergies. To properly clean these surfaces, turn to one of ProTeam’s 4 new High Dusting Kits. You’ll gain 10-12 additional feet of effective cleaning, and be better equipped to eliminate dust from every surface of your facility.
2. Become More Productive
Imagine starting the new year by doubling your productivity. Swap out your traditional upright vacuum for a backpack vacuum and imagine no more. A backpack vacuum is 43% more efficient than an upright. In one hour, an upright can clean 2,875 square feet, while a ProTeam backpack can cover 7,407 square feet in the same time frame. Whether you’re cleaning restaurants, homes or hospitals, there’s a ProTeam backpack that’s right for your business.
3. Invest in Innovation
The ultimate step towards productivity is adopting new innovations. Cleaning professionals looking to add the latest in cleaning innovation to their equipment arsenal should consider investing in the latest in vacuum technology: a cordless backpack vacuum. Last year ProTeam introduced the enhanced GoFree Flex Pro, one of the lightest and longest running cordless backpack vacuums on the market. End users will appreciate the freedom of not being tethered to an outlet and the comfortable FlexFit harness; while decision-makers will appreciate the return on investment and competitive advantage.
4. Practice Proper Maintenance
Ensure your valuable cleaning equipment has the longest life possible by practicing proper routine maintenance. ProTeam ProLevel Filtration improves IAQ by capturing asthma and asthma triggers, but clogged or dirty filters will reduce air flow and result in poor suction and/or over-heating. Commit to checking filters before and after each use to determine if they need to be emptied, cleaned, or replaced. Empty or change filters when they are half full to keep your vacuum operating at peak performance. Consider starting a filter maintenance log to help track filter replacement.
