February 5, 2013

HAMILTON, OH — Kaivac Inc. have expanded their ROI (Return on Investment) Calculators introduced a few years ago, replacing them with a new set of "Savings Guides" now on the company website, according to a press release.

savings guideThe Savings Guides
are designed to be easy to use, address the cleaning needs of different types of facilities and different types of cleaning tasks, compare conventional cleaning methods with no-touch, spray-and-vac and crossover cleaning systems, and provide considerably more information than the old ROI calculators, the release stated.

As an example, with one of the four Savings Guides, the user enters information such as the number of restrooms cleaned; the number of fixtures cleaned in each restroom; cleaning frequencies; and hourly wages paid to the cleaning worker, the release noted.

According to the release, with this information, the system reveals such things as:

  • How much time it takes to clean the restroom using conventional and no-touch cleaning systems
  • Annual labor costs using both types of systems
  • Chemical cost comparisons
  • Equipment return on Investment.

"Information for many of the calculations are based on ISSA's popular Cleaning Times as well as other cleaning-related labor, time, chemical, and water analysis studies," said Tom Morrison, vice president of marketing for Kaivac.
