The Popularity of Portable Chemical Proportions
Monday, March 14, 2016
Mixing cleaning chemicals manually can be messy and hazardous, even for experienced janitorial teams. When wall-mounted chemical dispensers aren’t an option, handheld dispensers can offer an excellent alternative.
One reason handheld dispensers are gaining popularity across industries is that when janitors are expected to measure and mix chemicals themselves, it’s far more common for them to guesstimate. This can lead to error and waste.
Wall-mounted dispensers are a great solution to this issue, but not every facility has the capacity for them. If there isn’t a supply closet or wall space for the unit, facility managers need another option. Handheld dispensers—which offer accurate dilution control and travel with the janitorial crew—can be the answer for these facilities.
They operate in a nearly identical way and can be attached to a custodial cart in order to travel throughout a building.
Independent, self-contained janitorial teams will also opt for handheld dispensers in order to travel from one jobsite to another as each facility will differ in what it offers cleaning crews.
Large facilities may also prefer handheld dispensers because it saves their janitorial team time—rather than having to return to the supply closet again and again as they move through a large building, they can bring the cleaners with them and simply access water outlets as needed. This simple change can improve the productivity of a janitorial staff.
