  • 5 MUST HAVE CLEANING TOOLS FOR SUMMER CLEANING PROJECTS

    by Scott Holland | Jun 12, 2018

    Summer is here! Bring on the sun, sand, picnics and fireworks! With many employees on vacation and schools on a break, summer is the perfect time to start larger cleaning projects. Here are a few of our favorite cleaning tools for those special jobs on your agenda this summer.

    1. Square Scrub Doodle Scrubber with Skate  

      The Doodle Scrubber with Skate is great for getting around and behind toilets. This nifty tool will reach under and around the bathroom stall. It also reaches those hard to get to places like under urinals. The skate allows the doodle scrubber to turn sideways to clean baseboards, tile & grout, stairs and more at 90 degrees.  Our #1 pick for summer cleaning!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

    2. 3M Easy Shine Applicator Kit

      The fastest, easiest approach for applying floor finish is to use the Easy Shine Applicator Kit. It eliminates mops and buckets and helps reduce finish usage. The design is perfect for the hard to reach corners and keeping finish off the baseboards. You can use this with any conventional floor finish and most other cleaning chemicals (neutral, general purpose or disinfectant cleaners.) This can also reduce labor costs by as much as 70%. This is a MUST HAVE item for anyone refinishing their floors this summer!                                                                                                                        

    3. Wet/Dry Vacuum

      A high-performance wet/dry vacuum is essential for all of your cleaning needs. We recommend the Nobles 15 gallon wet/dry vacuum with squeegee. The large capacity reduces the number of empty/fill cycles, saving time and labor dollars. It is designed to prevent vacuum damage with the float shut-off. It has easy access to the recovery tank and float shut-off with the flip-top lid. This vacuum is indispensable when stripping floors!                                                                                                                                       

    4. Nobles® Aspen™ 6B Battery Backpack Vacuum w/Base Kit

      Experience the freedom, safety, and productivity of going cordless! Operator ergonomics and speed are improved since the unit does not need to be plugged or unplugged. Going cordless will also dramatically increase your safety by removing the potential for trip and falls. Your employees will thank you for adding this to your equipment fleet!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

    5. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

      Special projects can call for special PPE. For example, gator shoes are designed to reduce the risk of slipping when stripping floors. Wearing the proper equipment minimizes exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses All PPE should be comfortable to wear to encourage employee use. It should be safely designed, clean and well maintained. Check out our previous blog “Safety Checklist: Beyond the Basics of Wearing Gloves” to ensure you have everything you need for your special projects.
