Odor Control

Odor control is essential in living spaces to keep them livable and healthy. Generally speaking, odors are of two types; physical and psychological. Physically, odors are sensed by human senses in the form of vapors or gases. Some odors can be from the physical makeup of a particular substance such as a chemical like skunk or tobacco smoke. Other odors are by-products of a biological process such as spoiled food or urine.

How we think and feel about these odors is  mostly a psychological phenomenon. Factors that influence odors in living spaces include heat, moisture, air movement and light.

Normally users use some sort of deodorizer to remove unwanted odor from any place. This often fails not because of product but the procedures followed in using the product. The first and most important step to successful odor removal is to find the source of the odor and remove it. Thorough cleaning is important after removal of the odor source. Sometimes, thorough cleaning is all that is necessary to effectively eliminate an odor problem.

We at JANITO offer Air Sanitizer, Deodoscreen, Urinal Screen and Bobson 190 – Odour Control Gel Cabinet for effective odor control. Have a look and learn about the simple solutions we have. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Soil Cleaning

Understanding what works behind the cleaning process will help anyone make an informed decision when choosing the best cleaning product or a solution. It looks utterly simple but cleaning involves many variables; controlled and those that are beyond control. For better understanding of cleaning we first need to know what is soil? What are the problems in its removal?

Soil can be any foreign body not including in the basic construction of an item, be it a factory floor or an office window or kitchan hard top. Soil includes sand, dirt, hair, pollen, food spills, oil and a lot more. Soil is brought in living spaces by human beings on their shoes, clothes, boxes, or in their hands. It can be a by-product of some activity taking place on or near the soiled floor type. It can also come in through air, rain or other natural functions. Again the list is endless.

Each cleaning situation is different and determines the type of tools to be used. What’s more important is that some times, cleaning tools leave behind residue. This residue can cause rapid re-soiling and lessen the appearance of the cleaned surface not to mention the effect on the user or building occupants.

Wise is to know what the nature of cleaning jobs at hand and then select the appropriate cleaning product or solution. That will greatly help you keep clean because the most products are made keeping in mind the real life cleaning situations. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Floor maintenance

Don’t let anyone fall on your premises. Sadly, slips and falls can occur anywhere, at any time and that is bad for individuals as well as the organizations. Janitorial staff must be very careful of slip-and-fall dangers. Best they can do is to have floors clean and well maintained.

The first step for the thorough, janitorial professional is to eliminate all possible chances for anyone to have a fall. Living spaces should be maintained both inside and out as slips and trips can occur both indoors and out. They should walk through the living spaces with an other person, looking for potential problem areas. An independent set of eyes will usually catch things that everyone else gets house blind to. Unless this is done, it is easy to overlook potential dangers.

Floors should be kept clean, dry and clear of foreign elements and sidewalks should be kept completely clear of snow, ice and other slip-and-trip hazards. Repairs should be carried out at the first sign of damage, and all publicly accessible areas should be checked and maintained on a regular and routine basis. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Cozy living spaces

Living is small homes or single room or just small living spaces is cozy. Savvy people live in small cozy spaces (for any reason) but make them comfortable and convenient. Best thing is that smaller places are easier to maintain, are very practical and easy to clean. How you make best of a small living place?

Cleanliness is into the habits of most people. One of the best ways to clean living is de cluttering; Don’t allow clutter from building up is to clean as you go. Put things away as soon as you are done using them. Making use of appropriate colors also make living spaces more liveable. Darker colours and shades make a place feel cozy and intimate but bright colors make small places seem more spacious and airy. If you like to experience with colours, you could try a buttercup yellow, lavender or even aqua. Yes another thing is to use furniture. Use multi-function furniture like a chest that can be used as a coffee table or a sofa that can be used as a bed at night. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Microfiber mops

One cant emphasize enough on cleanliness. The appearance of work or living spaces is vital to the overall perception of a society. Fairly general statement but true. The cleanliness of our living spaces directly affects the attitudes and modes of people and of societies

Cleanliness is not for appearance alone though. We need clean environment for health, environment, quality of living, and yes, also for living clean.

Janitorial professionals say by experience that microfiber mops ore one of the most important cleaning tools. Compared to cotton or looped mops, microfiber removes twice the dirt and dust because the microfibers attract dirt. Technically speaking a microfiber dry mop eliminates the use of dust mop chemicals, addresses bacterial control issues and generally collects more dirt than a conventional dust mop. Dry microfiber mops are also much easier to maintain than cotton mops. In addition to dry mopping, microfiber proves beneficial when used as a wet mop. In a demonstration after mopping with the cotton mop, the same area was mopped again with a microfiber mop and the microfiber picked up a considerable amount of dirt left behind after the initial cleaning, showing its effectiveness. Microfiber mops also help eliminate cross-contamination because new pads are replaced easily after mopping each room or area. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

Odor control

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. . . . .

Cleaning plan

Having and implementing a cleaning plan improves indoor environmental quality in living spaces. Thanks to growing awareness that more and more organizations and janitorial professionals are adopting plans for their own settings.

Many things are common in cleaning plans. Given the importance of green cleaning almost all plans include options for environmentally friendly cleaning products in the present age. Everyone has established cleaning priorities. Most of the organizations have provisions to educate building occupants and custodial staff by disseminating information about why cleaning is important and how they can help keeps the premises clean and participate by keeping the environs clean (and resultant less use of energy). One sees signs posted throughout many facilities describing cleaning policies and how building occupants can support. Similarly, it is important that custodial staff is educated about the health impacts of conventional products and trained in the right use of the right products. Proper disposal is also part of any wise cleaning plan.

Janito always support the products, practices, and project for right cleaning through safer and eco friendly products.

Cleaning research

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 »
