If you’re finding yourself spending a lot of money on the cleaning products that go on the janitorial carts in your building, you’re not alone. In fact, the cost of cleaning can add up quick, but that does not mean you should skimp on how often you’re disinfecting the workspace. You just might want to swap out certain products with more cost-effective options.
USA Today reports natural cleaning products are a great way to go when trying to reduce costs. Using products such as white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide not only helps keep surfaces clean, but they also are much more cost-effective than some of the name brand cleaners.
Not only could switching to natural products help save money, they could also be better for your working environment. According to Care.com, sometimes harsh chemicals may get the job done, but put the cleaners at risk by breathing in fumes or having the chemicals come into contact with the skin. While this kind of deep cleaning is good to do on an annual basis, or if something is becoming a hazard, exposure to these kinds of chemicals all the time isn’t always the best without proper protective gear. Taking out harsh chemicals every once and a while could be good for your cleaning crew.
