Odor control is one of the important processes for healthy and clean environment. There are many techniques and tools for different commercial, industrial or residential facilities.
One basic rule is that never mask odors with fresh scents. Odor will never go away unless the source is removed. Hence, cleaning, getting rid of odor sources, is the first step to control odor. Another rule is clean often and disinfect. BTW, just as important as using a disinfectant is using it properly. Simply spraying and wiping will not do the job. Poor cleaning techniques rather create odor. Like when a mop head smells bad, that odor is being transmitted throughout the space being cleaned. Or if vacuum bags is emptied on a regular basis, it will start spreading odors.
Frequent cleaning is also necessary to effectively remove all odors. More so in places with high traffic. Also it is important to clean items like wastebaskets full of odor-producing sanitary napkins and wet paper towels, as well as office space wastebaskets that may harbor coffee grounds and drippings. . . . .

Concept of green cleaning is getting more popular with every day passing. Thanks to increasing awareness that more and more people trying to stay green. Lately I came across a very interesting (read it innovative approach) to green cleaning. I am delighted to share it here for janitor readers.
Recently a gust who checked into a hotel and was asked if he would like his room “green cleaned.” BTW, the hotel does use non-toxic chemicals, their green cleaning program meant that the guest had the choice of whether housekeeping would service room every night during his visit.
According to the hotel, for each night a guest skips having his room cleaned, He would earn a few bucks off food or drinks, but he would help the environment by saving nearly 50 gallons of water and using less electricity and natural gas. These “green” savings are a result of declining towel and linen laundering, but to participate a guest has to forgo room cleaning as well. . . . . Read the rest of this article »
Some people see dust everywhere whereas some other don’t. A study crossed my desk that says that cleaning is obsessive. “Our obsession with cleaning could be linked to rising rates of depression, scientists claim,” it reads. Researchers find that eliminating bacteria and viruses has actually made our immune systems weaker, and this in turn has affected the functioning of our brains.”
Researchers say that over-reaction may also impair the brain’s ability to produce certain chemicals that make us happy. They point out that rates of depression are far higher in the developed world compared to less developed world, because people’s immune systems are less trained to cope with bacteria. Around one in ten Britons suffers from depression compared to just one in a hundred in Nigeria, for example. As people develop and grow up, their immune system develops. If they are exposed to more bacteria and parasites, they are able to better control the inflammation.
Empirical observations show that nowadays people’s environment is much cleaner and hygienic so our immune system never really learns how to deal with infectious agents. We are overactive because our immune system has not been trained. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Cleaning floors, small or large and commercial or residential, is one of the most common cleaning tasks. Floor mops, brooms and brushes are available in huge variety of shapes, sizes, and colors — each one serving a particular purpose. Janitorial and cleaning professionals know which is the right mop, broom or brush for a particular type of flooring surface.
Let us consider the colors and how they are assigned?
An expert says that light-colored brooms are used for polishing, buffing and burnishing. White pads good for polishing clean and dry floors. Darker colors are more abrasive and they remove light scuff marks and dirt while producing a smooth, glossy finish. Blue pads are used for wet scrubbing or heavy-duty spray cleaning. They aggressively remove heavy dirt and scuff marks. Green pads are utilized for heavy-duty wet scrubbing or light stripping. They remove dirt and scuff marks from heavily soiled floors. Dark-colored pads have coarse fibers and are used for scrubbing and stripping. Brown pads are designed for wet or dry stripping, while black pads are for heavy-duty wet stripping. They each aggressively remove wax, dirt and finish.
On the other hand, tut the more aggressive the pad, the more easily it can damage the floor surface. Cleaning professionals need to select the appropriate pad before use.
