May 7, 2009
CHICAGO — Tornado Industries Inc. has prepared a list, Top 10 Ways BSCs Can Cut Costs, to help building service contractors weather the current economic storm when it comes to selecting cleaning tools, equipment and methods, according to a press release.
Some of the suggestions include: Use low-moisture floor scrubbers and carpet extractors; select machines that increase productivity; take advantage of volume discounts when purchasing chemicals; and utilize multi-purpose equipment, the release stated.
Another suggestion is that BSCs should evaluate different cleaning systems, such as specialist cleaning, Day Cleaning or skip cleaning, which may prove faster than conventional cleaning strategies, the release noted.
Michael Schaffer, president of Tornado Industries, said: "Be flexible. Work with your customers during this time of economic stress to build future customer loyalty and solidify the business relationship."
Tornado suggests investing in green cleaning equipment as it generally lasts longer and reduces the cost of ownership, the release added.
