Buying Guide: Maintenance & Janitorial Supplies

Cleanliness and hygiene can make or break an impression. Whether it is personal cleanliness or that of your workplace, it is certainly important. Have you been focusing entirely on making office supplies available to employees, to increase productivity and revenues? Perhaps it’s time to pay a little attention to workplace hygiene too by investing in janitorial supplies. Here is a quick guide to get you moving in the right direction.

Cleaning Products & Janitorial Supplies

Cleanliness at the office suggests your company’s core values. That’s why, to maintain a good reputation amongst vendors and potential clients, you should always keep your workplace tidy.

When ordering office supplies, look into buying maintenance and janitorial supplies as well. These include simple items such as brooms, vacuum cleaners, mops and buckets, washroom accessories, gloves, garbage bags and other necessities.

Crites & Riddell’s Suggestion: Electrolux Upright Vacuum

Assign a person in the office the duty to make sure these supplies are always available and replaced before they run out. You could do this by designating this task to one employee per week. Include this on the duty roster for the office. 

Odour Control

Bacteria and viruses spread very quickly in shared places if proper hygiene standards are not met. This is especially true for washrooms and kitchens.

There are a couple of things you can do to keep your workplace odour-free. Change garbage bags regularly, install fragrance diffusers throughout the office, get powerful extractor fans installed in the washrooms and kitchen and make sure that there is good ventilation in your office to create a comfortable and refreshing environment.

Waste & Recycling

A majority of office waste is often reusable or recyclable. Place paper bins in appropriate places throughout the office. Remind employees to think before printing and use double-sided printing when possible.

Crites & Riddell’s Suggestion: Personal Recycling Wastebaskets

Recycling doesn’t have to be only about paper and plastic. Even used office furniture can be recycled after a certain period of time. These seemingly little measures go a long way to create a positive environment at work.

Apart from implementing all these methods to maintain a wholesome environment in the office, make sure every employee knows about them. Do so by discussing it at meetings or putting little reminders throughout the office. For instance, a note next to the printer hinting to employees of unnecessary printing or a note by the fridge reminding them that food shouldn't be left for more than a day.
