  • Custodial Partners Stresses Importance of Wearing Sunscreen

    Baz Luhrmann was right when he released his 1999 hit “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” spoken song about the importance of wearing sunscreen (among other life lessons). Wearing sunscreen is as important as ever in the fight against skin cancer and premature aging, and it’s especially important for those in the custodial industry.

    For those who put in long hours outside maintaining properties, sunscreen application should be an added daily ritual similar in importance to that of brushing one’s teeth. When we talk about the sun’s UV rays causing damage to our skin, what’s really happening on a microscopic level is that each skin cell’s DNA is being permanently damaged. Sometimes the cells with the damaged DNA successfully replicate and can eventually become harmful to our health. In this instance, cancerous growths can occur.

    It’s estimated that 87,110 new cases of Melanoma — the most aggressive form of skin cancer — will be diagnosed in the year 2017, 9,730 of whom will ultimately die of the disease.

    As a company whose main concern is the safety of your custodial staff, we urge commercial businesses to purchase sun protection for your employees who are exposed to the sun for more than 15 minutes every day. Landscaping and exterior cleaning jobs are performed on a more regular basis during the summer months, which means an increased risk of severe sunburns. Deb skin care products are an effective solution to ensuring that your janitorial staff is protected throughout the day while on the job.

  • Essential Cleaning Supplies For Small Businesses

    If you’re in charge of custodial duties for a small business in the greater Boston area, there are plenty of options for cleaning supplies to choose from. However, not all cleaning supplies in Boston are created equal, and sometimes the product in question doesn’t work for the size of the space you need to maintain.

    REN Escalator Cleaning SystemFor larger spaces such as warehouses, department stores and multi-story corporate office buildings one can simply purchase larger cleaning equipment such as auto scrubbers and auto floor machines. When it comes to cleaning smaller spaces, different tools are needed.

  • Bring Out The Shine With Floor Burnishers

    It’s time to give those floors a good shine! Non-carpeted flooring is generally easy to take care of, but it can often collect scuff marks and display footprints quite visibly. There’s always the traditional approach of using a wet mop to apply burnishing products the surface of your floors, but this work is tedious and often inefficient.

    Instead, Custodial Partners recommends floor burnishers. Our janitorial equipment company in Boston provides businesses with electric, battery-powered, and propane floor burnisher options.

    Electric floor burnishers

    This type of floor burnisher is a real time-saver for the user. All of our products, such as the Hawk HP1520-HSBDC High Speed Burnisher offer ample amounts of cable so that you can cover both small or large areas without having to switch outlets mid-clean. One downside to electric floor burnishers however is that there is a cord that you will need to watch out for during the cleaning process.

    Battery-powered floor burnishers

    Unlike the electric floor burnishers, battery-operated floor burnishers don’t have the inconvenience of a cord and are perfect for those who have smaller facility spaces to clean. The batteries of all our floor burnishing products are long-lasting, such as the NSS® Charger 2022ABLT Battery Burnisher and it’s 2.5 hour battery life. This allows you to tackle the areas you need to clean in a more efficient manner. Keep in mind that the battery will run out eventually, unlike it’s electric counterpart.

    Propane floor burnisher

    Perfect for dry burnishing and restorative burnishing, the propane floor burnisher is a go-to for many custodians who need to work around corners and reach under racks. The propane floor burnisher runs on an engine, which means it’s longer lasting than the battery-powered option and there’s no cable to deal with like the electric option. All of our propane floor burnishers, such as the Aztec Reliant Propane Burnisher are UL and CGA approved and meet CARB and EPA emissions standards.

  • School’s Out For Summer: It’s Cleaning Time!

    With all the colleges in the New England area wrapping up this month, it’s now time to get ready for “the deep clean.” We don’t just mean a quick sweep through the hallways; we’re talking about every nook and cranny. Or perhaps your business is slower during the summer months due to employees taking off for summer vacations throughout the season. Whatever the reason for your deep clean, Custodial Partners is here to help you get the job done in a timely fashion so that you can get outside and enjoy the nice weather.

    Speeding Up The Cleaning Process

    We’re all about making things more efficient here at our janitorial equipment company, which is why we stress the importance of investing in quality cleaning equipment. Below are just a few cleaning equipment essentials that are great for buildings with non-carpeted floors.

    • Burnishers. These are great for making tile and linoleum floors sparkle and shine. Many of our burnishers are smaller in size and are very maneuverable and relatively lightweight. Burnishers such as the Hawk HCF1520-1500 Compact Fold-Up High-Speed Burnisher are great for smaller-sized classrooms, convenience stores with narrow isles and medical exam rooms.
    • Automated Scrubbers. Automated floor scrubbers are ideal for those who need to cover large surface areas in a timely manner. These are mostly used for schools, hospitals, grocery stores and warehouses and come equipped with large water/solution tanks. The NSS® Wrangler 2625DB Autoscrubber, for example, includes a massive 25 gallon solution tank for better efficiency.
    • Wet/Dry Vacuum. Your cleaning equipment room wouldn’t be complete without a wet/dry vacuum. This piece of equipment works best to remove the loose dirt and debris from hard floors or carpeted floors before you bring in the automated scrubbers and burnishers. Our 20 gallon ProTeam® ProGuard™ 20 Wet/Dry Vacuum allows for the best maneuverability without sacrificing performance.

  • The Truth Behind Green Cleaning Products

    As a janitorial equipment and custodial cleaning supply company, it’s our job to provide a wide variety of cleaning products. We never include products that aren’t built for the task at hand, and that includes certified Green products (among other chemical cleaners). There’s often a stigma against these environmentally friendly products as being “less effective” than their more potent counterparts, but in reality, Green certified chemical cleaners can get the job done just as well.

    Companies such as Seventh Generation and Method have made it a priority to exclude chemicals that are known to cause serious side effects in humans during one-time use and after repeated use. Chemicals such as ammonia and chlorine are toxic if safety precautions aren’t enforced and custodians aren’t careful with the handling of these chemicals. Green certified chemicals are not only better for human use, but also for the environment.

    If you decide to choose environmentally friendly cleaning products, it’s important to note a few differences:

    • First, Green products will be slightly more expensive than their more toxic counterparts. This is due to the manufacturing process.
    • Second, environmentally friendly products may take some more elbow grease during the cleaning process in order to achieve the same results as more harsh chemical cleaners. However, the results from Green products are the same as chemical products when used as directed.

    Not sure if a product is Green certified or not? Here is a helpful review on what labels to look for. Our Boston area custodial equipment and janitorial supply company has multiple Green certified chemical cleaning options. Contact us today to learn more or to place an order!

  • The Best Cleaning Product for Glass, Mirrors & Stainless Steel

    Looking for something that doesn’t leave residue or streaks on your glass, mirrors and stainless steel? Sure, Windex works to clean surfaces, but it doesn’t make them truly shine.

    Instead, PURETi can get the job done while you spend half the cost as you would purchasing other surface cleaning products for the same uses. This high-tech surface treatment both cleans and polishes. What’s great about this product is that it’s less expensive than the leading brands and due to it’s highly concentrated formula, you only need to use a small portion of what you would normally use to clean a surface.

    How PURETi Works

    This janitorial cleaning product is proven to lower maintenance labor by 50% or more all while reducing noxious airborne chemical smells by up to 20%. The secret is that PURETi does not use as strong a pH as other cleaning chemical brands, which makes it safer for your janitorial staff and for building occupants.

    Just as you would for most spray cleaning products, spray PURETi directly onto glass, mirrors or stainless steel surfaces so that the entire surface is damp. Be sure to not let the product dry on the surface before you have a chance to remove it. Always wipe the surface using light pressure from a microfiber towel. When done correctly, application of PURETi only needs to occur every 1-3 months as needed.

    This product, available at Custodial Partners, will greatly reduce the time you and your staff spend cleaning glass, mirror, and stainless steel surfaces. Contact us today for questions regarding availability!

  • Forget the Salt, Choose SNO-PLOW with LIQUI-FIRE™

    Areas of Massachusetts are supposed to be getting a few inches of snow early this week — are you prepared to keep the property clear of ice and snow?

    Instead of using dozens of bags of salt to get the job done, opt for Morgro SNO-PLOW™ Ice Melter with LIQUI-FIRE. Using salt is bad for the environment, particularly the grass and shrubs that surround the property you’re trying to meticulously maintain. After using salt all winter, you’ll notice dead grasses and shrubs that line walkways — this is due to the toxic properties of the salt you’ve been applying.
    Sno Plow De-icer and snow melterMorgro SNO-PLOW Ice Melter with LIQUI-FIRE is a more environmentally friendly (USDA approved) option that is just as powerful as using salt. USDA approved and safe to handle with bare hands, this product is children and pet safe, so this makes it a go-to product for those in charge of custodial work for apartment complexes and schools. There’s also no need to worry about damaging other materials such as exposed metal due to it’s anti-corrosive properties.

    Each granule of SNO-PLOW is thoroughly coated with LIQUI-FIRE in order to lower the melting temperature needed for SNO-PLOW to melt ice and snow up to three times faster. These little granules are also green in color so you’ll actually be able to see the amount of product you’re using and where it’s going on the ground; as a result, less product is wasted.

    SNO-PLOW with LIQUI-FIRE™ is available via Custodial Partners in 50 lb bags or 50 lb pails. Purchase yours today and be prepared for New England’s next big snowfall or freezing temperatures!
