Check out some of the most popular smart restroom management systems on the market today!

Looking to learn more about the most popular Smart Restroom Management Systems on the market? Read on.

Below, we review the top 3 IoT-enabled systems on the market today (in no specific order):

KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System

The KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System by GP PRO connects your whole restroom.

This system is designed for office buildings, high traffic locations, colleges and universities, and even hospitals and large industrial facilities.

Today, the KOLO™ System is installed in a range of locations, from 300,000 sq ft office buildings to the busiest airport in the world. Common characteristics of KOLO customers are sites with over 250 dispensers who are focused on using the latest technologies to enhance facility hygiene and offer a premium customer experience. 

The KOLO System monitors paper towel, tissue, soap and sanitizer usage, as well as a host of other data points, including estimated restroom traffic, waste, outage time, and more.

With the KOLO System, facilities are able to reduce product waste, lower occupant complaints, and increase operational efficiencies.

In some cases, facilities can see a 90% reduction in people impacted by towel outages and as much as an 85% reduction in tissue waste. Additionally, 88% of custodians surveyed say it makes them more efficient.

This system sends real-time alerts from the exact problem location, helping to increase staff efficiency. Staff spend less time searching for the out-of-stock or malfunctioning machines across your facility as the exact restroom location and dispenser or item are noted in the alert. 

The KOLO™ System sets itself apart in several ways, including that it can connect to a variety of smart or cloud-connected devices such as TOTO™ toilets, sinks, and urinals to monitor, track, and notify of any issues on these items all from one system. 

Other KOLO partners include Avius customer satisfaction tablets and Tooshlights stall occupancy lights.  KOLO data can also be integrated with other facility management and work order solutions.   

The connection between various devices allows for a more robust facility monitoring system.

Further, KOLO has a new Cleaning Task Management System that is not limited to the restroom and can be used across your entire facility.  

System Tracking & Available Analytics

The KOLO™ system is unique in the fact that it can transmit data in two different ways.

Data is sent from dispensers to collectors via Bluetooth, and then from collectors, it can either be transmitted to the cloud via your existing wi-fi network or through a secure LoRaWAN network that Georgia-Pacific installs. 

If you have a robust wi-fi system currently and choose to use your existing wi-fi networks, there is no external hardware or integrations needed.  If you do not have a wi-fi network that a business partner can connect to, however, Georgia Pacific’s LoRaWAN solution provides a completely ‘off-prem’ solution – so you’re covered in either case. 

The KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System has both a mobile and desktop application.  The mobile application provides timely information for custodians and supervisors on the go, while the desktop application is designed for managers and supervisors who need a comprehensive view of what’s happening across their facility now and over time.

Key alerts available on both applications include:

  • Low or Out of Stock Product
  • Low or Depleted Batteries
  • Dispenser Jams or Clogs

You can choose from preset alerts or determine your own. For access to the data, there is a monthly subscription payment. There is no payment per user seat.

In addition to these alerts, the system uses predictive analytics based on past trends to help prevent future premature changeouts, reduce waste, and helps develop data driven cleaning routines.

Installation Protocols

The KOLO™ team manages the entire installation process and offers onboarding, training, and ongoing consulting and support on your site’s performance. 

Dispensers used with the KOLO™ System are leased by the facility. While dispensers do not require an upfront purchase, paper and hand hygiene product costs, as well as data management, must be paid by the facility. 

To help determine if this technology is a fit for a facility, the KOLO team will estimate the value the system will create, including reduced product waste and the time saved by reducing complaints and work orders, easing inventory management, and limiting unnecessary dispenser checks.

Tork Vision®

Tork Vision®

Designed to help support better hygiene and lower occupant complaints, Tork Vision®, previously known as EasyCube, utilizes a combination of technology to monitor restroom traffic, track product consumption, and digitize cleaning tasks.

Alerting staff in real-time, the Tork system enables your janitorial team to maximize efficiency, stay ahead of issues and respond to needs more quickly.

This intelligent system does this by using data-driven cleaning to identify urgent needs in the restroom. This helps your staff get actionable insights to understand where and when cleaning and refilling are needed.

The system can track consumption levels for soap, sanitizer, hand towels, and bath tissue, with a wide connected dispenser assortment to fit customers’ specific needs. Monitoring consumption levels means you can rest assured your guests will always have access to essential products that support proper hygiene.

While this system is beneficial for the restroom, it can also be used in many other parts of the building. Tork® offers building managers flexibility to connect either visitor traffic or dispenser data sensors in all types of spaces to optimize the way of working everywhere that cleaning is done.

This is especially important in today’s environment where people are limiting how many people are allowed in a space and increasing the frequency of when an area should be cleaned based on the number of visitors. 

Tork Vision® allows you to see traffic patterns and set customized visitor thresholds per area to identify and service high-touch areas. Tools like the visitor heatmap quickly identify hot spots to optimize cleaning frequency and more strategically staff cleaners. This helps you display to your guests that you are actively cleaning and disinfecting, providing peace of mind. 

Given the versatility of the Tork system, it is a great gateway IoT option for any facility.  This system allows an operation no matter the size to ease into the world of smart restrooms and smart buildings.

System Tracking & Available Analytics

Using its own cellular connection, Tork  ® sensors do not require access to a WiFi network. This helps the sensors identify the strongest connectivity and avoid putting any strain on a customer’s bandwidth.

Tork   can be used to send alerts for:

  • Low or Out of Stock Product
  • Occupancy Limits
  • Cleaning tasks for cleaners
  • Messages to cleaners

After an alert is resolved, the dashboard stores analytics for future planning to optimize resources and lower product waste. Tork  ® also helps support stronger reporting and proof of service, with built-in reports on cleaning, quality, product consumption, availability, visitor traffic, and more.

While the system comes with a unique software application for managers and cleaners, Tork® also has open architecture with API options. Meaning, if you feel more comfortable tracking and analyzing data on your own software platform, you can pull the Tork visitor and dispenser data directly into that existing system.

Installation Protocols

A site survey, in combination with your goals, can help decide how this system can help enhance your operations. Pricing will vary based on each facility’s needs and goals.

With this system, customers will see the value they can achieve by identifying how they can generate savings in areas like labor and product cost, as well as how maximizing efficiencies can contribute to their bottom line.

Onvation® Smart Restroom Management System

Onvation® Smart Restroom Management System

Kimberly Clark Professional, in collaboration with GOJO Industries, has transformed the way you can manage your commercial washroom with the Onvation® Smart Restroom Solution.

This strategic partnership enables you to proactively monitor smart restroom solutions from both industry-leading SCOTT® and PURELL® brands – all through a single interface.

The Onvation® Smart Restroom Solution leverages smart-sensing technology, allowing your custodial crew to remotely monitor the use of Scott® Towel and Bath Tissue and  PURELL® hand hygiene products as well as dispenser conditions. 

You can easily track and analyze restroom conditions right from your fingertips to reduce customer complaints and increase tenant satisfaction.

Sending updates in real-time, maintenance personnel bypass having to check multiple areas or dispensers for issues, cutting down on the amount of time it takes staff to complete the task. The system also aids in reducing restroom complaints due to out-of-stock products or out-of-service dispensers. 

Designed for large, high-traffic facilities, the system seamlessly monitors buildings with 30+ restrooms, like office buildings, healthcare facilities, airports, and universities, optimizing restroom servicing and increasing staff efficiency so they can focus on other high-touch cleaning and disinfecting tasks.

System Tracking & Available Analytics

To transmit data in real-time, the Onvation® solution utilizes a third-party gateway that continuously uploads restroom data to Microsoft Azure, where the information is securely stored. The gateway has flexibility to connect to the cloud via cellular or Wi-Fi.

Alerts are dispatched to cleaning staff via the Onvation Compass™ app. The app is free and can be downloaded by as many users on your team as necessary.

When staff is alerted to an issue or upcoming outage, they can quickly resolve it, lessening the chance of customer complaints and unhappy guests.

Onvation® also saves employees time and energy by pointing to the exact restroom and dispenser they need to maintain.

This system also helps cut down on product waste. In many large facilities today, staff must estimate levels of product and guess if they should restock while they are there. This premature restock when paper products and soap dispensers are not fully empty, leads to unnecessary waste. In fact, a Senior Property Manager from St. Paul, MN shares how Onvation® helped reduce tenant complaints by 90% and cut product consumption in half.

Because the alert threshold within the Onvation® dashboard is adjustable, facilities managers can select the specific percentage at which they want staff to receive a notification. This means restroom dispensers can be refilled just before or exactly when needed, dramatically reducing waste and greatly improving inventory planning.

Possible alerts available from the Onvation® system include:

  • Low or out of stock product
  • Low battery
  • Dispenser jams

Additionally, the system can be configured to track restroom traffic and product usage information.

While alerts are best managed through the Onvation Compass™ application, supervisors and staff can access notifications through any cellular or internet-connected device.

When accessed via computer, management has control of a dashboard complete with analytics and predictive metrics based on past usage and occupant traffic.

Current and historical data and metrics help facility managers better evaluate product needs and usage. The dashboard offers the ability to compare monthly and year-to-date consumption averages, traffic patterns, premature refills, and average response times to alerts.

Installation Protocols

After a site survey, Kimberly Clark Professional and GOJO, in coordination with you and your Distributor will prepare, order and install the system as well as applicable products. 

In most situations, Kimberly Clark Professional will cover the cost of the installation but the building must lease the dispensers and pay for the products needed as a result of the site survey.

Post-installation, Kimberly-Clark Professional and GOJO deliver on-boarding training session(s) to review product set-up, performance, and answer any questions your team may have.


Final Thoughts

An Imperial Dade Specialist will help you identify which system is right for your business’ needs. We’ll start by identifying your goals and then perform an in-person or virtual evaluation of your facility so you can understand how to optimize your restroom cleaning and maintenance program with IoT and smart restroom management systems.

3 Products To Prevent Foul Public Restroom Odors

Dirty public restrooms can leave a lasting negative impression on the people that enter your building.

In fact, about 47% of people are led to believe a business doesn’t care about its customers when they see an unclean restroom. 

If your guests encounter restrooms that have a foul odor, there’s a high chance that they’ll immediately turn around and leave. 

While some of your customers may make a complaint with your staff, others may go so far as to leave a poor review of your facilities, which can affect the way your building is viewed.

To avoid this, you and your cleaning staff should make sure that your restroom remains clean and maintains a fresh smell.

In this article, we’ll cover some of the different types of restroom odor control solutions that can help keep your commercial restrooms smelling fresh.

How Do You Keep Your Public Restroom From Smelling?

The first, and probably most obvious thing to do is to clean your commercial restroom regularly. A regular cleaning schedule will help reduce the risk of the people in your building encountering a dirty restroom.

The second thing your business can do is make sure that your public restroom consistently smells good. There are a variety of odor-control solutions available to use, like:

  • Urinal Screens
  • Active Odor Control Systems
  • Fragranced Cleaner And Deodorizer
  • And More

Urinal Screens

Grout and any cracks in your floors are moist, dark, and hard to clean, making it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria from urine and other soils. 

When occupants and guests use the restroom urine splashes from the toilets and urinals, seeping into the grout and other cracks. 

If removing the bacteria from these areas wasn’t tough enough already, the trapped bacteria from urine and other contaminants is the main cause of restroom odors.  

It can also lead to floor damage, dirty appearance, and an overall unsanitary environment.

Urinal screens are designed to reduce the chance of splashback when your urinals are used by your guests, protecting your floors and reducing odors. Uric acid can also seep into the grout and through any cracks in your floors. 

A fragrant urinal screen, like the Wave 3D, can be used to minimize the risk of urine splashing to floors, reducing the risk of odors, bacteria growth, and other related issues. 

Active Odor Control Systems

An odor control system that constantly releases fragrance in your restroom is an essential part of preventing foul odors.

Active odor control systems are designed to deliver scents into the air at regular intervals in order to combat any foul odors in your restroom. 

These systems can be used to treat all of the air in an area, as opposed to passive odor control systems which use air passing to release the scent. 

In most cases, you should use a combination of active and passive systems to combat and control the odors in your restroom. 

Systems, like the Fresh Products™ ourfresh, come with different fragrance options that can be matched to the different types of odor control products you have in your restroom. 

The variety of scents will allow you to choose the best fragrance option that best meets the needs of your commercial restroom. Depending on the odors you are combatting, you may want to choose a stronger or more neutral fragrance for your restroom.

The ourfresh active air freshener is a dry fragrance system that provides consistent public restroom odor control for up to 30 days. 

The Fresh Products™ ourfresh uses a fan to release the right amount of product during use.

These odor control systems can be placed near the sink or mounted on a wall to provide a pleasant experience for your guests as they enter the stalls.

Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

The products you use to clean your commercial restroom can also play a role in how it smells. Not only will the right cleaning chemical be successful in removing odor-causing bacteria, but it can also leave behind a pleasant scent.

Janitorial products that clean without removing the source of odors will lead to lingering odors in your restroom.

The lingering smell is usually urine that has seeped into the floor and cannot be reached by regular restroom cleaners. 

Bio-active concentrates are a cleaning chemical filled with bacteria that will break down the bacteria that cause restroom odors and penetrate the surface to remove stubborn urine residue.

The Fresh Products™ BioConqueror 105 is a bio-active concentrate that consumes urine and waste that has settled on the floor and other surfaces.

The Bio-Conqueror 105 can be diluted for use on your floors with a mop or auto scrubber, in your toilets, and on various surfaces to provide a deep clean of your restroom.

This product is available in a variety of fragrances that can be matched with the existing scents in your public restroom to leave a desirable smell in your restroom after cleaning.

You will want to make sure to use the same scent throughout your entire restroom because having too many different scents can be overwhelming for your guests. 

Final Thoughts

Controlling the presence of odors in your restroom is an important part of making sure that your guests are satisfied with their experience in your facility.

Using a combination of urinal screens, active odor control systems, and fragranced cleaning chemicals can help eliminate odors in your restroom and even keep them from returning.

These products target and treat the cause of odors that can affect how your guess perceives your facility’s cleanliness.

5 Benefits of Preventive Maintenance for Janitorial Equipment

An essential part of being able to clean and maintain your facility is keeping your janitorial equipment in working condition.

Not only will your cleaning staff need to perform basic maintenance procedures before and after each use, but your machine will need more thorough periodic maintenance to keep it up and running. 

This additional maintenance is referred to as “preventive maintenance.”

Preventive maintenance is an important component of making sure that your equipment doesn’t experience long downtimes and that your cleaning staff has access to the machines they need to complete tasks in your facility.

In this article, we’ll tell you why janitorial preventive maintenance is an important part of keeping your equipment up and running to save your facility time and money.

5 Benefits Of Preventive Maintenance

When performed routinely, janitorial preventive maintenance will avert unexpected downtime caused by broken and out-of-service equipment along with other issues like increased cleaning times, lower productivity, and higher costs.

Most frustratingly, equipment always seems to break at the wrong times. Like when you are trying to get ready for the first day of school, open up the office, or get ready for the lunch rush.

You may not think you need preventive maintenance because your equipment is in working order, but these maintenance procedures are meant to prevent breakdowns and extend the life of your machines.

It’s also common to avoid preventive maintenance because it’s an additional cost for your business, but when performed properly, it can save your business money on labor, repairs, and time in the long run.

Preventive Maintenance can provide your business with 5 main benefits:

  1. Cost Savings
  2. Time Savings
  3. Increased Occupant Health and Safety
  4. Longer Asset Life 
  5. Less Equipment Downtime 

1. Cost Savings

The greatest benefit of preventative maintenance is a lower cost of labor and money saved on expensive machine repairs. 

Machines that aren’t properly maintained can break down more often because the parts are not serviced regularly and become worn during regular use. 

Preventive maintenance can help your business reduce how much it spends on repairs by catching and fixing issues before an extensive repair is needed.

For example, if you are not checking the batteries on your floor machine, you may cause your batteries to have a shortened life and require replacement. 

If your staff or chosen service center is able to maintain your machine before a part breaks or needs to be replaced, you can reduce the cost of getting your machine back up and running and eliminate the risk of the machine breaking down mid-cleaning procedure.

You can also save on labor costs with commercial preventive maintenance. When equipment breaks it will take your staff more time to complete cleaning tasks in your facility.

With labor being the most expensive resource, it’s imperative to ensure equipment is in working order especially when some equipment can boost productivity by up to 230%.

2. Time Savings

Equipment often breaks at the most inconvenient times. When your janitorial cleaning machines break, your staff will have to spend more time cleaning, leading to reduced productivity and higher labor costs for your business.

This is due to the need for using older, less efficient cleaning tools or methods while waiting for your broken equipment to be repaired.

Janitorial preventive maintenance will keep your equipment in working condition without disruption. It also greatly reduces the chance of needing reworks due to poor cleaning results from malfunctioning or poorly taken care of equipment.

For example, floor machines that are not maintained after use can lead to wobbly machines, causing floor scratches or scuffs and uneven cleaning. 

Incorrectly maintained floor machines can also lead to damage to other parts of your equipment, like the pad driver. 

Regular maintenance can help catch any worn parts so that they can be replaced before they cause an issue for your janitorial team.

When your staff can work uninterrupted, they can get more done.

3. Increased Occupant Health and Safety

If a part of your machine is broken, worn, or dirty, you may not be able to get the best clean possible.

Equipment operating in poor condition will leave behind dirt, debris, and bacteria that would normally be removed.

For example, a commercial floor scrubber with a malfunctioning recovery system may not be picking up enough slurry from your floors. If the people in your building walk on your floors thinking they’re dry, there’s an increased risk that they will slip on the wet floor.

Not only is this unsafe and a hazard for guests, but this will also affect the appearance of your floors.

Another important consideration is the health and safety of your staff.

On some floor maintenance equipment, floor pads are used to complete cleaning tasks and should be checked periodically to make sure they aren’t damaged or worn. If your staff attempts to complete cleaning with a damaged or extremely worn floor pad, it may fly off of the machine and put the people in your building at risk of injury. 

4. Longer Asset Life

Every piece of equipment has an average life span or amount of time it’s expected to last before needing replacement.

Preventive maintenance can help extend the life of your equipment and keep it up and running for longer. 

It’s normal for your equipment to have wear and tear from daily use around your facility, but a regular maintenance schedule will keep your equipment in good shape, extending the overall life of your equipment.

For example, a full flush of the solution and recovery system on an auto scrubber is needed to help you identify any leaks or loosened connections in the machine. 

A full system flush is also important to help remove and loosen any built-up residue in the machine. Chemical residue left in a solution tank can clog the solution lines and cause the failure of internal valves and pumps.

If not performed at least once a month, hoses can be affected and dramatically lower the overall lifespan of your machine in turn costing you more money.

5. Less Equipment Downtime

A majority of equipment breakdowns are caused by preventable issues when caught early on.

Commercial preventive maintenance addresses potential issues before they cause your machine to break or go out of working order. Extensive issues can be avoided so you don’t have to wait for parts and repairs for your machines.

For example, a floor buffer will need lubricant to be applied to all of the pivot points and assembly parts that may become dry and hard to rotate. Without proper lubrication, the machine may start to squeak and grind. If ignored, this can cause damage to the axle or frame of the machine.

Failing to lubricate the joints of the machine can lead to out-of-service equipment. In today’s market, the parts needed to repair the machine could take weeks to months to arrive so you can get your machine back in running condition.

Scheduling maintenance when it’s most convenient as opposed to waiting for unexpected breakdowns will help reduce the amount of time your equipment spends out of service.


Final Thoughts

Preventive maintenance is a key step to making sure that your cleaning staff can clean and maintain your facility to the best of their ability.

Some tasks are easy and can be performed by your janitorial team, like charging a dead battery, but others may require maintenance to be done by a service professional, like replacing a power cord.

Imperial Dade has service centers across the country that can send out a licensed technician to your facility to perform the preventive maintenance services your machines need to keep them running.

If you’re located in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, or the Caribbean reach out to an Imperial Dade specialist today to schedule janitorial preventive maintenance for your janitorial equipment.

What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Disinfecting large areas in your commercial facility can be time-consuming and require a lot of labor from your cleaning staff. Read this article to learn whether electrostatic disinfection is the right no-touch disinfection method for disinfecting surfaces in your building.

Creating a clean, sanitary environment for you and the people in your building is an important task for any facility manager. 

Manually cleaning the various surfaces in your building can create very long cleaning times, making it hard for your janitorial team to complete other tasks in your building.

To combat long cleaning times, your janitorial staff can use an electrostatic disinfectant sprayer to disinfect the surfaces in your building.

In this article, we’ll explain what electrostatic disinfection is and how you and your staff can use electrostatic disinfection in your facility to reduce the chance of spreading illness-causing germs.

What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic disinfection is the process of spraying a disinfectant chemical on a surface or object in your facility using an electrostatic sprayer.

When using an electrostatic sprayer, your cleaning staff can apply disinfectant faster, using fewer chemicals, and achieving an even coating.

As a result, large areas that are disinfected using an electrostatic sprayer are treated more efficiently and economically.

How does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

Electrostatic disinfectant sprayers are able to deliver uniform, 360-degree wraparound coverage by applying either a positive or negative charge to the disinfectant chemical.

Since most surfaces have a neutral charge, the charged particles that are dispelled from the sprayers are attracted to them. 

Applying a disinfectant using an electrostatic sprayer allows for thorough coverage since the droplets are attracted to the surface while repelling droplets of disinfectant. This means that if an area has already been coated with disinfectant, the chemical will travel to new areas or surfaces that haven’t yet been coated by disinfectant.

What Disinfectants Can Be Applied Electrostatically?

It is important to note that not all disinfectant chemicals can be applied electrostatically, and not every electrostatic sprayer is compatible with the same disinfectant. 

Some manufacturers, like Victory Innovations and Clorox, have outlined the different types of disinfectant chemicals that can be used with their electrostatic sprayers.

When choosing a disinfectant to use with an electrostatic sprayer, you should double-check the product manufacturer’s instructions for compatibility with the device you’re using.

You should also check that you can achieve the required dwell time using an electrostatic disinfection sprayer.

If you use the wrong chemical in your sprayer, you could risk inadequate surface coverage and reduced disinfection caused by the disinfectant not being able to hold the electrical charge. 

Where Can Electrostatic Disinfection Be Used?

Electrostatic disinfection is most effective when used in areas like:

  • Educational facilities
  • Healthcare settings
  • Hotels
  • Airports
  • Restaurants
  • Athletic Facilities
  • & other facilities that require frequent disinfection

You can also use this technology to clean hard-to-reach areas and crevices that would otherwise be ignored.

WARNING: When using an electrostatic sprayer in a food service or food preparation facility, you should use extreme caution. An electrostatic sprayer shouldn’t be used when food and other items are out and can come into contact with the chemical disinfectant.

You should also be cautious when using an electrostatic sprayer in an area where children commonly spend time.

What Types Of Electrostatic Disinfection Devices Are Available?

Imperial Dade provides a variety of electrostatic devices to help you and your cleaning staff achieve effective and efficient disinfection in your facility.

We can provide your facility with our two top-rated electrostatic devices that will make disinfecting the surfaces in your facility easier and less time consuming:

  1. Victory Innovations® Electrostatic Sprayer
  2. Clorox® Electrostatic Sprayer

Victory Innovations® Electrostatic Sprayer

The Victory Innovations® Electrostatic Sprayer is designed to cover more surfaces in your facility while saving your cleaning team time and labor.

The Victory Electrostatic Sprayer comes in either a 5 lb handheld sprayer with a 1L capacity or a 10lb backpack sprayer with an 8.52 L capacity.

Depending on the size of the area being cleaned, you can choose between the handheld and the backpack sprayer. 

If you have to disinfect an area that has a lot of obstacles and furniture, you will benefit more from the handheld sprayer while disinfecting an open area will be easier with a backpack sprayer. 

Chemical Compatibility:

Victory Innovations sprayers are designed to use a range of disinfectant chemicals, including peroxide and chlorinated tablets. However, the manufacturer doesn’t sell disinfectants specifically for use with the sprayer.

That means the chemicals you use can be tailored to meet the budget and infection prevention needs of your specific facility. 

For your preferred disinfectant chemical, you will need to confirm with the chemical manufacturer the disinfectant is suitable for electrostatic spray application and is effective against the target pathogens.

Power Source: 

The Victory Electrostatic Sprayers are cordless, lithium-ion battery-powered electrostatic sprayers. A cordless sprayer offers you and your cleaning team increased mobility without the risk of tripping on a power cord.

The handheld sprayer is best used at a distance of 2-4 feet for the best disinfectant coverage, while the backpack sprayer has an optimal spray distance of 2-6 feet.

Run Time: 

Both of these models have a 4-hour run time on a single charge and a 90-minute battery charge time.

Clorox Electrostatic Sprayer

The Clorox Total 360 provides a uniform surface coverage and kills illness-causing germs from surfaces in your building.

Size: 

The Clorox Electrostatic Sprayer comes in either the 33.8-ounce handheld TurboPro™ model or the Total 360 electrostatic cart that is compatible with the Clorox 128 fl. oz. disinfectant products.

Chemical Compatibility: 

The Total 360 system should only be used with Clorox’s line of disinfectant chemicals. These products range from cleaner disinfectants to sanitizers. 

The TurboPro™ can be used with any compatible disinfectant chemicals that work with an electrostatic sprayer and have EPA approval for application by electrostatic spray devices.

Power Source:

The handheld TurboPro™ sprayer has a rechargeable battery, while the Total 360 cart system is corded and can only be used as far as the cord will allow the system to go.

A corded electrostatic sprayer is able to maintain a consistent charge during use, which is key to making sure that the disinfectant can achieve a full 360 degree wrap on surfaces and objects.

Optimal Spray Distance:

The TurboPro handheld sprayer should be held between 2-3 feet from the surfaces being sprayed. The Total 360 cart sprayer should be used between 2-4 feet away from the surfaces being treated.

Run Time:

The total 360 system is corded, so it will run as long as it’s plugged into an outlet. 

The TurboPro™ can run for 4 hours on a single charge.


Final Thoughts

Electrostatic disinfection is a great option for any facility that needs to complete high-volume surface disinfection. It also works great for any facility that may deal with hard-to-reach spaces or objects that are not easily disinfected by hand because of the object shape or fixture surface area. 

With an electrostatic sprayer, you and your cleaning staff will be able to apply disinfectant chemicals to various areas in your building faster and use less labor and chemicals.

If you’re located in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, or Canada, contact one of our Imperial Dade sales consultants to learn more about how electrostatic disinfection can benefit your facility.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Did you know poor IAQ or indoor air quality can affect the health of your occupants and visitors? Keeping the air in your facility clean is vital to occupant comfort and health. Find out how to remove viruses, mold, dust, and other air pollutants in this article.

Did you know poor IAQ, or the indoor air quality, can affect the health of your occupants and visitors? Keeping the air in your facility clean is vital to occupant comfort and health. Find out how to remove viruses, mold, dust, and other air pollutants in this article by learning how you can improve indoor air quality at your business’s facility.

What are the Downsides of Poor Air Quality?

IAQ, or the indoor air quality of your building, has a big impact on your occupants. Poor indoor air quality can create discomfort and illness amount the people in your building. Sometimes it can even lead to health issues that seemingly have no direct cause, meaning that fresh air is crucial for the well- being of everyone in your facility.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) refers to this as “sick building syndrome,” which is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building. There are numerous causes for sick building syndrome including chemical and biological contaminants, but inadequate ventilation and poor air quality are notable sources of discomfort for many.

These symptoms typically include, but are not limited to: 

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Irritation of nose, throat, and eyes
  • Respiratory diseases

Depending on the type of facility you manage, this can create several issues.

Poor IAQ in schools can create long and short-term health effects for students and staff, which can affect their performance. Students that are affected by poor air quality may have reduced attendance, comfort, and performance. Given how students attend school with the primary purpose of learning, poor air quality can inhibit their growth and development in the classroom.

For businesses, employees can also be affected by poor indoor air quality which can cost tens of billions of dollars each year because of reduced worker productivity and illnesses. Poor air quality can also be detrimental to the well-being and experience of customers who visit your facility.

Up until recently, improving indoor air quality wasn’t a high priority for many businesses. However, as COVID-19 surged, more people realized the importance of clean air since illnesses including COVID, the flu, and the common cold are spread through the air.

While COVID-19 has been around since 2019, removing the virus (SARS-CoV-2), and other contaminants, like dust, allergens, and other illness-causing germs is still as important as ever.

If there is one concept that will last well past the current COVID-19 surge, it is the importance of improving indoor air quality. Before we tell you how to improve your building’s indoor air quality, let’s review:

What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality refers to the number of pollutants inside and around the outside of your facility. The air outside of your facility contributes to the quality of air inside your facility because ventilation systems allow air to pass into your building. If there are high levels of air pollution outside of your building, your indoor pollutant levels will also likely be high.

What Are the Most Common Air Pollutants? 

There are many pollutants that linger in the air that we breathe every day. Some of the indoor pollutants that cause poor indoor air quality include:

  • Bacteria, Mold, and Viruses
  • Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Dirt and Dust, Including Dust Mites
  • Building Materials
  • Outdoor Sources (such as tobacco products, etc.)
Poor indoor air quality impacts concentration and performance.

Poor indoor air quality impacts concentration and performance, among many other factors for an individual’s well-being and performance. Allergens, like mold, can cause musty odors and are linked to health issues like headaches, allergic reactions, and respiratory discomfort.

In this article, we’ll explain the benefits of using an air purifying system to help you understand if it might be a good indoor air quality solution for your facility.

How Can You Improve Indoor Air Quality?

The best way to improve indoor air quality is to reduce the number of pollutants that are present in the air.

While this can be done in several ways, some of the most popular include:

  • Increase ventilation. There are several ways to accomplish this including opening windows and doors to create natural ventilation allowing fresh air into your building.
  • Have your building’s HVAC (Increased Filtration and Purification Technologies) systems inspected to ensure it is operating properly. Make repairs and upgrades if needed.
  • Check and clean or replace air filters.
  • Clean and maintain your facility on a regular basis, reducing the build up of dust.
  • Invest in portable air purifying technology.

While there are several ways to improve indoor air quality, the most flexible, versatile, and economical option is through the use of a portable air purifier.

What are Portable Air Purifiers and Why are they a Flexible Option for Commercial Buildings?

Portable air purifiers are commercial air purification systems that operate separately from your facility’s HVAC system. These purifiers filter the air in a certain area of your facility and complete multiple air changes per hour.

A portable air purifier can either be wall-mounted, recessed into the wall, or standing. The Fellowes Air Purifier provides flexibility to install units in locations that are most convenient while not occupying a large amount of space.

Some of these systems have features that are easy to use and can provide your occupants and visitors with clean air, faster. These features include:

  • Multiple Layers of Filtration
  • Smart Technology
  • Easy Movement

Multiple Layers of Filtration

There are commercial air purifiers that use multiple layers of filtration to remove as much of the air pollutants from an area as possible. The different filters work together to remove different kinds of particles from the air, like odors and VOCs.

Smart Technology

Some units have smart technology that will allow the purification system to run most efficiently. This smart technology uses a sensor to sense when people are in the area and will adjust fan speeds to best clean the air while conserving energy and extending the filter life. There are also settings that accommodate the need for quiet fan speeds and will emit less noise when the room is occupied.

The air purifier may even have the capability to show you the percentage of particles being filtered out of the air and the quality of the air in the room.

Many commercial air purifiers are built to be run 24/7 without affecting the effectiveness of the system. Because of this, you can rest assured that your air is being cleaned consistently.

Easy Movement

Another feature of portable air purifiers that makes them a good option for cleaning the air in your facility is that they can be moved easily. If you notice that an area is being used less, you can move the equipment from a low-traffic area to a higher trafficked one.

What are the Drawbacks of Commercial Portable Air Purifiers?

Though portable air purifiers are a great air cleaning solution, their size affects the amount of space they’re effective in. Each commercial air purifier has a maximum space recommendation that will allow the air purifier to achieve 3-5 air changes per hour. It’s important to note that you may need more than one device to clean the air in your entire facility.

By putting a system in a room that is too large, you may not be able to remove pollutants from your air. This means that you will need multiple portable air purification systems to efficiently clean the air throughout your building.

What Businesses Can Benefit from Commercial Portable Air Purifiers?

Now that you understand how you can improve indoor air quality, you may be wondering what types of facilities are most applicable for their use. All types of businesses, whether they are large or small, and no matter what types of services they provide, can benefit.

Imperial Dade has had success with the Fellowes Aeramax Pro® line of portable air purifying devices, which is a great option for cleaning the air in your facility to create a safer environment.

In fact, one of our customers purchased the Fellowes Aeramax Pro ® purifiers to help them improve the quality of air in their school. They were looking for ways to ensure that their students were coming into a safe and healthy building as they returned to school after the summer.

Many of the students have medical issues that are related to allergies and asthma, which are triggered when there are higher levels of pollution in the building. They chose to implement portable air purifiers throughout their school because of the company’s experience with air purifying technology and the purifiers are inexpensive to run.

Improved indoor air quality in schools has been shown to improve attendance, enhancing focus, and making students more comfortable. With the addition of portable air purifiers, schools can ensure the air their students are breathing is clean and safe.

Four Things You Need To Know About No-Touch Disinfection

As we’ve always known, schools are where most students need to be, and they are now reopening while we’re still in the grips of the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, we will also be entering another annual cold and flu season with its attendant absenteeism and other adverse health impacts. It’s enough to make anyone responsible for providing and maintaining healthy environments lose some sleep!

Disinfecting all of the critical high-touch objects in our buildings is a challenge for any housekeeping program at the best of times, even more so during periods of increased illness rates and outbreaks. However, we believe that an established technology known as No-Touch Disinfection (NTD) can help solve this problem. 

Through the use of electrostatic spray devices, NTD augments your current daily cleaning and disinfection practices, allowing you to ensure complete disinfectant coverage of all high touch surfaces economically and efficiently.  As you are probably aware, this approach is now being used to provide enhanced disinfection for everything from nursing homes to passenger planes to schools.

Implementing NTD can be easy once the facility’s requirements are appropriately matched to the correct application technology and disinfectant chemistry.  Once the technology is selected, education and training enable the safe deployment of NTD.

Here are some guidelines when evaluating NTD:

What is electrostatic spray application?

During periods of heightened threats of infection or actual outbreaks, you need to be able to ensure 100% coverage of all frequently touched surfaces and objects. Imperial Dade offers electrostatic and spray disinfection systems that can meet everyone’s budget and application requirements.  These units impart an electrostatic charge to the disinfectant to achieve 360 degree surface coverage. As a result, large areas can be effectively and efficiently treated economically.

What needs to be considered when instituting a NTD program?

In an educational setting, the disinfectant needs to be matched to the organisms of most concern, be it the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus which causes the infection known as Covid-19, Influenza, Norovirus, MRSA, or any number of other bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Then, is it necessary to treat the high-touch objects on a weekly or more frequent schedule?  Also, will the areas to be treated be adjacent to occupied spaces?  Can corded equipment be used in the desired regions, or is there a need for battery-powered devices for portability?

Which disinfectants can be applied electrostatically?

Most importantly, the disinfectant chemistry for NTD needs to be compatible with this type of application equipment.  Is the disinfectant product approved or authorized for this application method, with electrostatic spray, mist, or fog?  What is the label dwell time requirements and the efficacy against the microorganisms of concern?  Regarding SARS-CoV-2, is the disinfectant on the EPA List N of products approved for use against the coronavirus?  Fortunately, according to the EPA website, products on List N are effective against all strains of SARS-CoV-2 as genetic changes to the virus do not impact the efficacy of disinfectants.  Finally, regarding your staff, what is the safety profile of the product and the recommended Personal Protective Equipment?

What types of NTD devices and disinfectants are available?

There are several manufacturers of NTD devices and chemistries that are available.  Many customers have found success with the corded Clorox Total 360 systems. However, many others prefer the ease and portability of the Victory Innovations line of battery-powered electrostatic sprayers.  Furthermore, the Victory units are designed to use a wide range of disinfectants, including peroxide and chlorinated tablets, so the chemistry can be tailored to meet the individual educational facility’s budget and infection prevention needs.

Hand Hygiene – An Important Way to Beat COVID-19, the Flu, and Other Illnesses

If we have learned anything from our experience with COVID-19, we know that we are supposed to wash our hands.  Study after study shows that proper hand hygiene is the most critical thing we can do to prevent the spread of infection in education, healthcare, or any other field serving the public.  This is mainly in viral diseases, such as COVID-19, influenza, and other respiratory maladies. Even gastrointestinal viruses like norovirus can be controlled through proper hand hygiene.  Beyond COVID-19, the stakes remain high as colds, the flu, and norovirus outbreaks result in millions of lost school and work days and costs the economy tens of billions of dollars.

Unfortunately, even during the pandemic, research shows that poor compliance to proper hand hygiene continues to be a significant obstacle to controlling these illnesses, even in the highly regulated healthcare field where healthcare-associated infections are a constant threat. For example, while over 50% of students wash their hands in schools, less than 20% use soap.  Men are also less likely to wash their hands properly – come on, guys, we need to get into the game.

Poor compliance can be attributed to several different factors we can control.  The condition of the restroom and the supplies provided throughout the facility can and does encourage people to help keep their hands in a more hygienic condition.  The following four considerations can summarize these key actions.

1.            Hand Care Products that Encourage Use

Get rid of the bulk soap dispensers.  There has been significant development in hand soap formulations that improve performance and reduce skin irritation. In addition, hand soaps from many manufacturers come in hygienically sealed cartridges, eliminating contamination.  These are the types of products people are looking for when washing their hands away from home.  Remember, the idea is to encourage hand hygiene and not look at the expenditure only as a cost.

2.            Convenient Dispenser Locations

There should be sufficient dispensers in the restroom to facilitate the hand washing process.  In addition, hand sanitizer dispensers should also be available throughout the building.  As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, alcohol hand sanitizer is effective against the SARS_CoV-2 coronavirus, as well as those pesky colds and flu viruses. It is a viable option for hand hygiene when hand washing isn’t an option.  However, as with hand soap in the restroom, empty hand sanitizer dispensers are a common complaint.  Dispensers need to be routinely checked and filled. 

3.            Access to Paper Towels and Facial Tissue

Simply put, most people like to dry their hands with paper towels, and most people don’t actually like hand dryers.  Paper towels provide for higher compliance, and the mere wiping of wet hands can remove bacteria and viruses through mechanical action.  But, just as with soap and sanitizer, empty dispensers discourage compliance.  Lastly, where practical, providing facial tissues is a great way to control cross-contamination from sneezes and runny noses. 

4.            Established Educational Programs

As with any behavior change, education is key. Every primary hand care and paper company can provide educational programs and materials appropriate for a wide range of audiences.  Whether it be elementary students, college campuses, or the workplace, tools are available to help promote effective hand hygiene.  Talk to your Imperial Dade sales consultant and find out if there is more that you can be doing to encourage this vital health and wellness behavior.

Best Odor Control Practices for Carpets, Restrooms, Dumpsters, and More

Controlling odors in and around a facility is a common problem for most cleaning professionals. Odors can lurk in many places: carpets, restrooms, dumpsters, and more. The best way to eliminate odors is to understand the cause of the smell. Once you identify the problem, consult this list of solutions to control the offending odors.

CARPETS

  • Carpet odor stemming from a food source, vomit, or urine should be approached with a carpet sanitizer.
  • Using an extractor to kill the odor source is recommended. If you can still smell the odor after thoroughly rinsing the carpet, follow up with an enzyme product.
  • After extracting the carpet, use a carpet fan, not a box fan. It dries carpet faster. Be sure your carpet is dry in 24 hours, or there is a risk of mold bloom.
  • Pet odors can linger in carpets. Enzymatic digesters will get to the source, killing the odor and not just covering it up.

RESTROOMS

  • In restrooms, urine is often the source of odor. Disinfectants will not impact urine that has dried. If urine odor is present, use an enzyme. If you are using an enzyme, do not use a disinfectant in the same area. Disinfectants destroy the enzymes before they are able to digest the bacteria. 
  • Check the floor drains, a common source of the odor. If the trap in a floor drain dries out, it will emit sewer gas. Use a drain cleaner, enzyme, or water to keep drains odor-free.
  • Don’t forget to clean often missed spots. The base of toilets, under urinals, urinal throats, partitions, and walls are often overlooked. Ceilings should be cleaned once or twice a year.
  • While it doesn’t replace a good cleaning program, adding an air care unit to help with transient odors will add to a pleasant restroom experience.

OTHER BUILDING LOCATIONS

  • Janitor closets can omit odors. Keep a tidy closet! After use, rinse mops with clean water and hang to dry. Empty and rinse mop buckets.  Clean, empty, and air out recovery tanks on equipment.
  • Inadequate ventilation can be cause challenges. If possible, open windows or clean air vents to improve air quality
  • Is the odor coming from the dumpster area or wastebaskets? There are several products made specifically for this application.

If you need more information on a specific odor or area, please contact your Imperial Dade Sales Consultant. A good daily cleaning routine will keep odor problems to a minimum! Visit our website to find a location near you.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

5 BEST PRACTICES TO PREVENT AND CONTROL MOLD

Mold and mildew are hot button topics any time of year but especially during humid summer months. According to the EPA, “Mold can grow on virtually any organic material as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation. Because mold eats or digests what it is growing on, it can damage a building and its furnishings. If left unchecked, mold eventually can cause structural damage to building materials. Molds gradually destroy the things they grow on. You can prevent damage to buildings and building contents, save money, and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.”

How is mold linked to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

When mold grows indoors, there could be reports of musty or moldy odors. These should be investigated immediately. Mold can be linked to various health issues such as headaches, allergic reactions, asthma symptoms, nasal irritation, and nausea.  For more information on Indoor Air Quality, please review the EPA’s Guide for Building Owners & Facility Managers.

What are the 5 best practices to prevent and control mold?

  1. Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:
    • Venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside
    • Using air conditioners and de-humidifiers
    • Using exhaust fans whenever cleaning
  2. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials or furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
  3. In areas with a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (e.g., by drinking fountains, classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).
  4. Prevent condensation: Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (e.g., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.
  5. If mold is a problem, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.

If you think your facility has mold or mildew you should first understand what type issue you have.  If the issue is flood water, please review the EPA Fact Sheet Flood Cleanup Avoiding Indoor Air Quality Problems”

There is no practical way to eliminate all molds and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

If you see mold, how do you get rid of it?

Who should do the cleanup depends on several factors. One consideration is the size of the mold problem. If the moldy area is less than about 10 square feet (roughly a 3 ft. by 3 ft. patch), in most cases, you and your team can handle the job yourself by following the guidelines below.

However, if the affected areas are greater than 10 square feet, a professional remediation contractor may be required for the cleanup.  In any event, check the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guide titled Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings, which gives advice on all building types.

What do you wear when removing mold?

  • Wear an N-95 respirator.  Please note that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that respirators fit properly (fit testing) when used in an occupational setting; consult OSHA for more information (osha.gov).
  • Wear gloves. Long gloves are recommended.
  • Wear goggles.

What are the best methods to cleanup mold?

  1. Scrub mold off hard surfaces, and dry thoroughly.
  2. Discard contaminated absorbent or porous materials, such as ceiling tiles.
  3. Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.  Wear appropriate PPE.
  4. Do not run the HVAC system if you know or suspect that it is contaminated with mold – it could spread mold throughout the building.

What chemicals should you use when removing mold?

Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial cleaning products, disinfectants, or a bleach solution. Follow the manufacturers’ instructions for use (see product label) and ensure proper ventilation throughout the cleaning process.

If you choose to use a cleaner-disinfectant product, check the label to ensure that it has efficacy claims for fungal organisms, such as Aspergillus niger. Niger is a black mold commonly associated with high moisture events.

Some disinfectants may even offer residual antifungal benefits that can help control the return of the mold problem.  Most importantly, certain disinfectants contain odor control agents that help eliminate the moldy odors, which are frequently a cause of student and staff complaints.

If you choose to use bleach to clean up mold, never mix bleach with ammonia or other household cleaners. Mixing bleach with ammonia or other cleaning products will produce dangerous, toxic fumes.

Who else can help when I have a mold problem?
