Update for wet floor cleaning



It has long been a problem while cleaning floors / corridors and stairways to minimise the risk of slipping 

Apart from putting wet floor signs on every level - with the constant negotiation  of " where to put what sign"  and "how many signs to use" 

These signs in themselves can become a risk and obstruction to hallways and stairways 

Due to this "I "  [TJ's Cleaning] have begun to implement certain changes while wet cleaning floors 

  1. One mop head per floor contract ensures non cross contamination between areas 

  1.  Pure water at 00.00 ratio ensures a pure clean 

  1. the use of a direct to floor cleaner with maintainer ensures the floor is dry within 60 seconds 

  1.  I have now initiated the practice of placing a "wet floor - slip hazard sign "  onto the cleaning handle being used . 

  1. The new policy put into place - of "a safety sign" on the cleaning handle [Size 23.5cm/9¼” x 61.5cm/24¼”] ensures that sufficient warning is given  to the immediate area being cleaned] be it for 60 seconds before dry. 

Along with this "I now wear hi visibility jackets with ID tags at all times"


I always "lockup" or keep cleaning  products and materials within assigned areas [using warning signs/ depending on contract/ usage/

We/I/ never take a mop bucket up with me - but rather clean a floor/level/  at a time and go back down to purify the mop head - before cleaning the next floor  [in the case of  stairways and corridors...

Eliminating  trip hazards and spills...
