Why Janitorial Distributors Can Help You Save Time And Money

By April Briggs

Starting a new cleaning business means you need quite a few things. One of those, of course are employees to help you clean clients buildings or homes. That might be satisfied, just getting started, by employing out of work friends and relatives. You also need floor machines, mops, buckets and all of the other small items that must be used to get things clean, not to mention chemicals. That is why you need to find and use one of the Janitorial distributors around town.

A large number of these store front operations have been set up as places for large manufacturers of cleaning products to sell their goods. This is fine because all of them also offer things from other makers, usually in non competing lines. There are also quite a few that are independent and shelf products from all makers of cleaning materials. This may be the best decision.

Chemicals are critical as no real cleaning can be accomplished without them. You must have a cleansing agent that removes the bond between the soils and the surface being cleaned. You will need a hard surface cleaner as well as a disinfectant. Other chemicals, such as for carpet cleaning and polishing are also needed and available.

The thing about chemicals is that some of them can be dangerous if handled improperly. Material Safety Data Sheets, or MSDSs must be on hand, at the location they are being used. This is a federal as well as local regulation and the stores you do business with will have access to them for you. Some of them will have the sheets for products they do not have to make this regulation easy for you to follow.

Floor machines, such as vacuums, carpet cleaners and buffers will be available for inspection. There are quite a few models and brands to look at and some of them are expensive. Using them, before you purchase, can be arraigned by having a room, usually in the back, where you can try them out

Information is one of the main thing people come in here for. They are looking for the information about the processes they want to improve. They need information about which tool or supply is the best for what task. They are interested in learning what items can be used for two or more processes or tasks. They also need to know what must be done before other things can be attempted.

It is not only the employees that can provide information to you. The other clients, standing around, drinking coffee or eating popcorn are anxious to share their tales with you as well. This will often help you overcome a particular problem you are having when another professional can fill in the blanks of your experience.

These companies exist to help you get what you need to ensure your clients are happy with your work for them. Yes, they are there to make money, but they only make money by making sure you are happy. You can become happy when you have everything you need to do your job and be able to grow your business because of adequate training, equipment, supplies and information.
