In the new hygiene-sensitive work environment, the one thing that remains the most important is maintaining the utmost cleanliness. The workplace environment has to be regularly monitored for any signs of dirt, germs, bacteria etc. In the age of COVID-19, even one sick employee can be a potential source of widespread infection, extremely detrimental to the rest of the workforce. In such a situation, it is important for owners of shops and showrooms to have the right cleaning supplies so as to protect the employees as well as the consumers.
To help you with this, we have compiled a list of must-have cleaning equipment for every kind of store.
- All-Purpose Cleaner
An All-Purpose Cleaner is the most affordable and useful cleaning supply available. It works effectively on almost all surfaces and is strong enough to easily cut through grime, dirt and bacteria.
It can be used in the bathroom as well as the general workplace. It works best when used with an All-Purpose Microfibre Cloth. The microfibres of the cloth trap and remove the dust and dirt particles, unlike a normal cloth.
All-Purpose Cleaners are also available in affordable eco-friendly variants, such as the Citrus Resources Squirt Ready Multipurpose Cleaner. It uses eco-friendly chemicals and vegetable /plant-based detergents that are good for the environment, bio-degradable and have a great fragrance.
A floor squeegee is a highly durable, grease resistant rubber blade fitted on a rust-resistant aluminium frame. It is ideal for cleaning large areas.
The floor squeegee aids in easy pushing and pulling of liquids on the floor. The rubber effectively cleans the floor in one stroke, thus reducing the time required in cleaning. If taken care of, your floor squeegee can last for a long time. One can use different kinds of cleaning solutions on the floor squeegee which makes it an ideal choice for all kinds of stores and shops such as pharmacies, grocer’s, food outlets etc.
Plastic Floor Mat
Having a simple plastic floor mat laid out in your entrance way can reduce the amount of dust and dirt entering your shop premises. Dust, mud, pet hair etc. on people’s footwear can be trapped in the floor mat, instead of being spread around your floor. A good quality plastic floor mat is a good idea for all weather conditions.
There are many mops available in the market, so it is important to choose the right one for your shop.
If you require a commercial mop for an area where there is often a lot of heavy debris and dust, then you should go for a Scissor Mop with Modacrylic Fibres. The easy scissor action aids in quick collection of dust, dirt and large debris.
If your shop area is small and the flooring is made up of tiles, linoleum or timber, you should go for the quick and easy to use Spray ‘N’ Glide Mop. It is lightweight, has a water dispenser and its microfiber pads easily trap dust particles.
In case your store has high hard-to-reach places, a Hand Dust Mop Modacrylic should be perfect. It is ideal for cleaning such points as well as skirting boards. The highly resilient Modacrylic fibres easily capture dust and dirt particles. The mop can be impregnated with polish to enhance dust collection.
Dusting is an important component of the cleaning process. Genuine ostrich feather dusters work best, as the dust is trapped within the ostrich feathers, giving a thorough clean. These dusters also work great on furnishings and delicate surfaces when used gently.
