  3. Be Clean & Go Green: Janitorial Supplies & Facility Maintenance

    Leave a Comment

    Being clean and going green go hand in hand when talking about effective facility maintenance. Reducing your carbon footprint starts with reducing the amount of waste you produce, the use of cleaning products with harmful chemicals, and amount of cleaning supplies and resources used in general. Implementing a facility maintenance plan that incorporates eco-friendly cleaning supplies and aims at efficiently utilizing products and resources to reduce waste, can help your company improve cleanliness, while reducing your carbon footprint. We outline the best facility maintenance practices as well as green janitorial supplies to keep in your inventory.

    Facility Maintenance Best Practices


    Use Commercial Entrance Mats

    Use Commercial Entrance Mats

    Commercial entrance matting can help reduce the amount of dust, dirt, and grime that is dragged into your facility. These sustainable products can help reduce the amount of time taken and cleaning products used to maintain your facility. Not only do these products help facility maintenance, but they can safeguard employees and staff members from slip and fall accidents.

    Train Your Janitorial Staff

    Train Your Janitorial Staff

    Having your facility maintenance staff fully aware of eco-friendly practices and products will help enhance the program. Also, it is important to emphasize simple, yet effective behavioral adjustments, such as turning off lights in rooms when they are not needed as well as powering off equipment, like fans and vacuums when they are not in use.

    Make Recycling as Accessible as Possible

    Make Recycling as Accessible as Possible

    A major goal of any effective facility maintenance program is to dispose of waste as environmentally conscious as possible. Make recycling bins easily accessible to your staff and customers. Encourage employees to recycle plastic, paper, and more to reduce the carbon footprint of your building.

    Incorporate Janitorial Cleaning During Normal Business Hours

    Incorporate Janitorial Cleaning During Normal Business Hours

    According to a report by BOMA International, janitorial practices equate to approximately 25% of a facility’s weekly lighting expense. Janitorial teams traditionally work night shifts, draining the facility’s natural resources such as natural gas and oil far beyond the normal business hours. To reduce the amount of resources being used, try having your facility maintenance team work during the normal business hours; consequently, lighting and other resources can be saved during the nighttime hours, furthermore, reducing your operating costs.

  4. The Essentials: Breakroom Supply Checklist

    Comments Off on The Essentials: Breakroom Supply Checklist

    One of the most important rooms in the office tends to get overlooked – the breakroom. Did you know it could impact your employees both physically and mentally? Physically because sitting over a desk can take a toll on your lower back if you don’t use the proper ergonomic furniture and mentally by affecting productivity. Having a happy and inviting breakroom where employees unwind can go a long way toward increasing your employee’s morale.

    Tips for Creating a Functional Breakroom

    • Make it convenient. By having all the necessary amenities in your breakroom for workers to use, you are allowing them to enjoy themselves without the headaches of wondering where to heat up food or store it. You don’t need to break the bank either – start with a mini refrigerator, a coffee pot, and a microwave. If your budget allows get a full size fridge, complimentary coffee, and vending machines.

    • Make it fun. A simple way to make your breakroom more inviting is to splash its walls in a bright color. Offer magazines or newspapers so employees can detach themselves from the Internet and give their eyes a rest. Don’t forget about brain games like crosswords to keep minds stimulated. Also try offering coloring books and crayons because they have been proven to relieve an adult’s stress.

    • Make it edible. Complimentary coffee is one way to show employees that you care about them. Encourage a healthier workspace by having healthy snacks on hand. Just by stocking your breakroom with free snacks and drinks, you are encouraging employees to enjoy their break time and go back to work refreshed.

  5. The 9 Dirtiest Places in Your Office

    Comments Off on The 9 Dirtiest Places in Your Office

    Most people avoid touching obviously dirty things: garbage cans, toilets, etc. But what about things you touch everyday like a phone or computer? Do you think about who used it before you or before them? Here are nine things that you may not think are dirty but may just be grimier than the floor.

    1. Your Breakroom’s Water Cooler
    2. The spout that workers use to get hot/cold water from is rarely ever cleaned, I mean when is the last time you saw someone clean it? Once a week try disinfecting the spout in a bleach and water mixture.

      Water Cooler

    3. Your Keyboard
    4. A study showed that keyboards are actually dirtier than toilet seats — mental picture, right? During the experiment, scientists found traces of E. coli and staph.


    5. Filing Cabinets
    6. Think about how many people touch one filing cabinet in one day to access files. When cleaning the office, don’t forget to wipe down the handles.

      Filing Cabinets

    7. Telephone
    8. In today’s office, we are on and off our phones constantly. At the end of your work day, give your phone and headset a quick wipe down to keep germs at bay.


    9. Water Fountain Buttons
    10. Did you know that 62,000 to 2.7 million traces of bacteria per square have been found on water fountains?

      Water Fountain Buttons

    11. Computer Mice
    12. If you work on a computer, you touch your mouse thousands of times in a day. We absent-mindedly touch our nose or a file and then go right back to the mouse. Keep hand sanitizer handy for those in between times.

      Computer Mice

    13. Your Office Desk
    14. Recently the notable Dr. Charles P. Gerba and The Clorox Company did a test that showed an office desk is 400 times dirtier than a toilet seat. The reason being is that most of us eat lunch at our desk two to three times a week and around 25 percent don’t wash our hands before.

      Office Desk

    15. Coffee Machine
    16. Most coffee machines are cleaned but not cleaned thoroughly enough. Bacteria can grow quickly in moist, dark places like the water reservoir.

      Coffee Machine

    17. Office Supplies
    18. Pens get passed around in an office quite often. Most people don’t even realize they’re sharing their germs. When cleaning, don’t forget about those office supplies that you love.

    Keep your Southern California office fully stocked with janitorial supplies that can disinfect and help keep germs away.
