Industry Experts Share Their Cost Saving Tips, Part 3 of 3

Jan/San Supplies & Equipment

Tips from Mitch Irvine, VP of Sales, National Accounts – Imperial Dade

  1. Buy concentrated chemicals which provide significant cost savings and reduce the need for chemical storage space. Our EDS (Easy Dilution System) or CMS (Chemical Management System) allow for super-concentrated formulas to be mixed by a wall-mounted dispensing system and the final product is only 10% of the RTU (Ready to Use) equivalent.
  2. Utilize our Imperial Dade Cleaning Institute to train and educate your cleaning crew. Properly trained employees work more efficiently and more safely.
  3. Invest in maintaining your floor cleaning equipment. Well maintained equipment avoids costly unexpected breakdowns which halt productivity.
  4. Reduce labor costs by implementing robotic cleaning equipment into your operations. Autonomous floor cleaning can save as much as 4 hours a day compared to manual machines, delivering an excellent ROI.
  5. Purchase matting rather than renting. Your establishment can own a custom-printed mat for the cost of about 10 weeks of rental fees. Use an outdoor scraper mat for the initial tough soils and then an olefin mat on the inside to capture the final debris. It can cost up to $500 to remove one pound of soil from a building.  Matting is the first defense to reduce indoor floor soil.
