We always seem to find a hodge-podge of janitorial products in storage closets when we conduct our initial review of new customers’ needs. Facility Managers are always shocked to find huge quantities of products they don’t need or rarely use and tremendous redundancy throughout. This redundancy is such a waste of space and money, not to mention a SDS nightmare.
Product Redundancy in Storage Closets Runs Rampant
Our initial review of new customers’ storage areas almost always reveal a tremendous redundancy of products. Three different glass cleaners, 4 different all-purpose cleaners, etc.
Facility Managers Greatly Benefit from Our Services
This product redundancy is usually caused by Facility Managers letting their staff do “whatever keeps them happy”.
Staff Turnover Compounds this Issue
And, with all due respect, do most cleaners keep on top of the latest and greatest products available? How much do they care about the price, quality or what your patrons think?
At Scrub n Shine, we’re always looking for better products that offer greater value and will help keep you informed as things evolve. Part of this process, is making sure that you use all of your existing product before making the conversion to something new.
Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Nightmare
To be in compliance, you must have Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on file for each product being used onsite. These sheets used to be called Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). When you allow your staff pick things up at the dollar store or lumber yard whenever they feel like it, it can quickly become a real issue with maintaining your SDS files. Also, it’s required that each user knows each product and is properly trained how to use it.
As your distributor, we make SDS easily available and work hard to be proactive by emailing them to you. We also offer training on anything you buy from us (equipment, chemicals, etc.).
