FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING CLEANING EQUIPMENT
Below are some of the factors to consider when choosing cleaning equipment can make cleaning easier for you. But one should choose correctly. First, you need to list your cleaning needs, such as available space, type of cleaning required, appropriate cleaning times, number of cleaning staff you can afford, etc. After making a list, you can contact the manufacturer of cleaning equipment that is available.
Cleaning site size and surfaces
Knowing your building and its purpose will often determine the type of equipment you need – commercial or industrial, hard or soft, ride or walker – and the weight and size of the equipment.
Is your facility an office building or a warehouse? Is there a lot of foot traffic or heavy machinery in use? What kind of dirt do you need to clean? Is your floor hard or soft? How big are the doors, ramps, stairs, and elevators? You need to consider all this
Economical cleaning Machine options
Machines that perform multiple functions are generally successful because of their perceived convenience factor. Customers who are wary of money or have little office storage will be drawn to the idea that one piece of equipment can serve both cleaning purposes.
Cleaning can be time-consuming, so products that get the job done quickly and to a high standard are cheap. Equipment that combines its performance with innovative features has many advantages.
Do you need to perform daytime cleaning when your facility is crowded with staff, patients or visitors? Does your facility require you to follow sustainable cleaning practices? Some devices are designed for everyday cleaning and are more compact in size and quieter in operation. In addition, many machines offer sustainable features, such as reducing water and chemical consumption.
Environmental friendliness Cleaning Products
Today, in Kenya, machines affect our daily activities now more than ever. We are considering how the extraction, manufacture, and disposal of cleaning products can greatly impact our energy and water use, and are looking for ways to minimize their wider impacts. The market for green cleaning products is one example.
The legislation ensures that all products meet basic environmental standards, but not sustainability. That’s why there is a race to develop sustainable cleaning products that use natural, renewable-sourced cleaning ingredients that are cost-effective, high-performance, and petrochemical-derived.
Availability of spare parts
When choosing a specific type or make of equipment, you should ensure that replacement parts are available at reasonable prices throughout the life of the equipment. It should also be ensured that the downtime of the equipment is not prolonged by the lack of spare parts.
Off-the-shelf equipment on the market should ensure that the devices are reputable and likely to continue production in the future. This is necessary for future standardization and securing spare parts supply. Such equipment is easy to dispose of after the project is completed.
The equipment selected for the project must be reliable at all times.
When choosing equipment, it should be kept in mind that the production cost per unit should be as low as possible, low maintenance, and effective in terms of performance.
The project area where the equipment is used shall provide service support. After-sales service is an important consideration when selecting equipment.
Use in future projects
When equipment has only completed part of its useful life in a project, it should be remembered that the equipment can be used in future projects and cannot be obsolete.
If the purchased device is a new make and model, it is best to ask other users of that make and model how it performs.
The equipment selected should be easy to use and maintain, acceptable to the operator, and have good fuel economy.
Suitability for working conditions:
The equipment must meet the requirements of the job, climate and working conditions.
The equipment should be sized so that it can be used with other suitable units.
If the selected equipment is larger, it will be idle most of the time or should be working under partial load, which means higher production costs.
On the other hand, if the equipment is smaller than desired, the equipment cannot be operated with suitable equipment, so other equipment must run idle or at partial load, which in turn is not economical.
Today’s cleaning equipment features innovative features and technologies designed to improve productivity, sustainability, cleaning efficiency, and more. Research available features and product attributes, such as water usage, chemical usage, tank size, line of sight, ease of use, accessories and replacement parts, and filtration capabilities, to determine which is best for your cleaning needs and business needs.
Think about how much support you and your cleaning staff want or need from your retailer or manufacturer after purchasing your equipment. Does the device come with a maintenance plan? Warranty? Does the salesperson provide on-site training? Is there customer service and general product support? Working with a supplier who remains engaged and engaged after purchase ensures that your equipment is well maintained and reaches its full potential, ultimately reducing your total cost of ownership.
