Cleaning Supplies and Equipment for Cleaning Services
I have owned a cleaning service for 20 years and tried many different cleaning tools for home cleaning. Below is a list of the best tools I have used to professionally clean a home. I hope these resources are a benefit to your cleaning service.
Mops and Pads: We use and recommend the LINKYO Microfiber Hardwood Floor Mop and pads. They can be purchased on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/LINKYO-Microfiber-Hardwood-Floor-Mop/dp/B018STEIMK
Vacuum Cleaner:I use and recommend the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Upright Vacuum.
Cleaning Caddy’s: Home Depot carries the best cleaning caddy’s. They are large enough to hold all your cleaning supplies. These large caddy’s are deep so it keeps your large bottles from tipping out.
Brooms: The best brooms we have found are the Libman Professional or Wide Angled Brooms. They can be purchased at Home Depot or Kroger’s.
Toilet Brushes: The Libman Angled Toilet Bowl Brush is the best we have found. It does a fantastic job of getting the grime from under the rim. The Libman Toilet Brush can be purchased at Kroger’s or you can visit www.libman.com for a list of places that carry the Libman Products.
Cleaning Cloths: Sam’s Club carries the white cotton cleaning cloths in large packages of 60. They also carry the microfiber cleaning cloths.
Scrape Soap Scum With Plastic Putty Knife: Soap has a nasty way of forming a hard-to-remove film on tile in tubs and showers. You won’t get rid of it by rubbing. Instead, wait for the surface to dry, then scrape off the scum with a 4-in. plastic putty knife.
Cut Grease With Hot Towel: Grease and dirt build up on kitchen cabinets over time. To clean your cabinets, first heat a slightly damp sponge or cloth in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until it’s hot. Then spray with All Purpose Cleaner, then wipe the cabinets with the hot towel.
For getting crayon marks, scuff marks, etc. off of walls and doors, the Mr.Clean Magic Eraser is great. (not for use on wood surfaces such as cabinets and furniture)
For cleaning inside Jacuzzi Jets and inside shower tracks the best tool is a good old toothbrush.
If you are ready to start a natural cleaning service, the first thing to consider is your product. A lot of companies offer these products but they produce their products in mass quantities which compromises the quality of the product. Plus some companies use synthetic ingredients such as fragrance oils in their products. Choose a natural product that uses only natural ingredients and pure essential oils.
Did you know that virtually every pure essential oil has its own antibacterial, anti-fungal, germicidal, antiseptic, deodorizing and even healing properties?
Health Benefits for You and Your Employees: Using natural products for your cleaning service instead of chemical cleaners prevents you and your staff from suffering from adverse health effects.
It makes such a difference cleaning with great smelling aromatherapy products rather than inhaling the bleach and other harsh chemical smells of the chemical products.
You and your employees will enjoy cleaning, and your customers will love coming home to a home filled with wonderful aromatherapy scents!
