FRESHX IMPROVES CLEANING PRACTICES

Poor cleaning procedures and practices, equipment, and bad habits can inhibit the effective cleaning of buildings.

Janitorial services and Workers thinking big need to THINK small when it comes to health cleaning. Cleaning for appearance only removes "big" visible soil rather than cleaning for health that removes "small" invisible bacteria, dust and airborne particulates and other micro, bio and chemical contaminates - largely the contributors to unhealthy indoor environments.

Daily deep vacuuming is more important than interim deep cleaning methods.

Dry soil is abrasive; when ground into your carpet, it cuts into carpet fibers - dulling appearance and reducing the longevity.

People can inhale particles 10 microns and smaller, good housekeeping is probably the most common means of removing potential allergens, and vacuum cleaners are the most commonly used tool.

Vacuum cleaning removes some fungus and spores from carpeting and furnishings, but it also reintroduces them to the air either through the action of the vacuum's beater bar or through conventional bags. Without proper filtration the reintroduction of allergens and harmful particles into the air can occur.

"Clean for health first, then appearance."

Of course cleaning for health requires the proper chemicals, equipment, and machines, but more important is the system that is utilized within the cleaning operation. The FRESHX system assures that the facility is properly cleaned on a scheduled basis and assure that cleaning, rather than polluting, is the result of the FRESHX cleaning worker activities in the facility.
