The concept of “cleaning for health” has gained steam in recent years and is now more important than ever before. While projecting a positive image and creating an attractive, professional appearance was once the most important goal of cleaning, facility managers now understand that clean spaces are vital for creating safer, healthier environments for employees and clients.
Intentionally cleaning with a focus on health reduces infections, respiratory issues and “sick building syndrome” while protecting your cleaning staff and even boosting productivity.
Cleaning for health begins with the floors. In the past, string mops and brooms were used to “clean” floors, but janitors didn’t understand the potential for the spread of bacteria and dirt each time they dipped a mop repeatedly in a bucket or spread microscopic debris around with a broom.
Today’s cleaning tools reduce cross-contamination, more effectively collect debris, reduce the spread of bacteria and even reduce the impact that cleaning has on the environment.
Two of our favorite pieces of equipment for healthy, effective floor cleaning – both inside your facility and out – are the Bissell BG677 and BG477 floor sweepers.
Bissell BG677 Triple Brush System Sweeper
This highly efficient unit is battery powered and easy to operate. The two front brushes rotate in opposite directions, grabbing the debris directly in front of the sweeper while the brush roller on the bottom picks up all the fine particles. The debris is then deposited into the large easy-to-empty 13.2 gallon container. Featuring a 31” wide sweeping path, maintenance-free motor and side rollers that make sweeping along walls easy, the BG677 floor sweeper is the perfect equipment for creating healthier, cleaner floors.
Bissell BG477 Deluxe Turbo Sweeper
No electricity needed! The panted Turbo sweeping system of the BG477 sweeps twice with one move. The two front bushes rotate in opposite directions, grabbing the debris in front of the sweeper while the brush roller on the bottom picks up all fine particles. The debris is then deposited into the large, easy-to-empty 13.2 gallon container. We love the lightweight design and how easy it is to store this unit.
