The importance of cleaning and janitorial products in public and commercial buildings
It is essential to consider daily visitors and users in any public, semi-public, or commercial building. The appearance of any building can completely transform someone’s judgement, whether it be a hotel, place of work, leisure facilities, restaurant, or hospital. Therefore, it is vital to portray an excellent image to whoever the visitors may be. Although washrooms and utility spaces are not necessarily the first thing someone looks for in a review before booking a day out or a trip, it can be a deal-breaker when it comes to someone returning if the facilities aren’t up to scratch.
Hygiene is essential in any building, and we are now more than ever aware of the impact of good hygiene and cleaning in any public space. However, it is not just a matter of hygiene standards which should be faultless, particularly in hospitals and restaurants. But it is also a question of ensuring that the style and quality of products get care and attention and are thoroughly cleaned and maintained in and out of the washroom.
Janitorial and utility spaces can often be an afterthought when working on any project. After all, much like the washrooms, they are often the last areas to be finished, whether a new build project or a refurbishment. These products are paramount to any building to keep cleaning and hygiene standards to an absolute maximum and should be considered when designing and planning any build. In addition to this, selecting products that are manufactured from quality materials can provide many benefits. Quality materials such as stainless steel can often be recycled and have a long life, meaning you won’t have to keep replacing products every few years. Also, choosing products designed explicitly for janitorial and utility spaces can help staff achieve maximum efficiency and performance when cleaning and maintaining a building.
KWC DVS have designed a range of stainless-steel janitorial sinks, bucket sinks, and utility sinks perfect for any cleaning or janitorial space in all public and commercial buildings. The stainless-steel janitorial units can be free-standing or mounted to the wall and have been designed with a top washbowl and bottom waste bowl with a grid. Complete with a monobloc mixer tap, these units are ideal for small cleaning and janitorial cupboards and provide an all-in-one solution. A healthcare-compliant version is also available, manufactured under HTM 64 and HBN 00-01 Part C guidance. The range also features utility sinks, sluice sinks, slop hoppers and general-purpose sinks, all manufactured from quality stainless steel.
Stainless steel is extremely robust, hygienic, and easy to clean, helping building operators to keep service and maintenance costs to a minimum. Dirt and oil can easily be washed from the smooth, pore-free surface without harsh cleaning products, guaranteeing a high-quality, long-lasting solution that will last for years.
