CINCINNATI — In these days of tighter budgets and increased environmental sensibility, facility managers have been conducting a thorough review of their operations with the goal of making them more efficient, safer to the environment and more bottom-line friendly. When it comes to cleaning and sanitizing their facilities, many have come to the realization that traditional hands-on mop-and bucket or rag-and-spray bottle cleaning methods can no longer effectively meet their cleaning needs in many of these crucial areas.
That’s why many are turning to touchless cleaning as a way to cut costs in the form of reduced water and chemical consumption, lower energy bills and decreased man-hours while at the same time providing a standard of cleanliness that can be as much as 40 times higher when compared to mop-and-bucket cleaning. For these forward-thinking operators, the fulcrum of a new touchless-cleaning regimen can be the ICS Mobile Touchless Cleaning System from Hydro Systems Co. The low-water/chemical consumption of the ICS can clean a typical six-fixture restroom with less than half gallon of water. While that’s impressive in and of itself, efficacy reports conducted by an independent testing firm show that cleaning with an ICS unit can be 40 times more effective than traditional cleaning methods.
To demonstrate to facility managers how cost-effective the ICS touchless cleaning can be, Hydro Systems is proud to announce its new “Cost Savings Calculator.” Located at http://www.hydro-ics.com/en/savingscalculator.asp, Hydro’s Cost Savings Calculator allows users to enter typical cleaning information, such as minutes of cleaning per restroom, ounces of water/chemicals used per restroom, chemical cost per gallon, etc., into a simple chart that then calculates how much annualized chemical, water and labor savings would be realized if the user were to incorporate an ICS unit into his or her cleaning regimen.
