Best Practices for Selecting Equipment and Partners for Job Start-Ups

Tennant Co.

 

 

When starting a new janitorial services/cleaning job, or looking to purchase floor cleaning equipment you should partner with a company that can provide value and insights to lower your cost to clean. An experienced partner will provide advice, expertise and cost-efficient equipment for all your jobs, setting you up for future growth and success.

When selecting a floor care partner, look for one that:

A site survey before you start the job promises a successful start-up. This steps ensures you completely understand the scope of the task and have the right equipment to do the job. A good site survey can eliminate excess purchases and increase productivity of staff and machines.

Your partner should offer innovative ways to make you more productive, cut costs and enhance safety. For example, your partner should offer equipment with side brushes for edge-to-edge cleaning and equipment that reduces your dump and fill time.

Companies today have concern for the environment and are always looking for ways to reduce their footprint. To meet this expectation, your equipment partner should offer solutions that allow you to use less water, detergent and fewer chemicals to do the job right. 

Your cleaning equipment manufacturer should be able to deliver machines so you can start the job on time. This might be through a quick ship inventory or offering multiple shipping options from boxed/crated, blanket wrap, shrink wrapped or even provide rental options. 

Without proper operator training, the best equipment won’t enable you to provide the cleaning your client expects. Choose an equipment partner who provides ongoing operator training for your new and existing equipment. 

Look for an equipment provider that offers national, factory-trained service and support.

Before your next job, refer to our Quick Start Guide workbook. It will help you plan, budget and manage everything you need for a successful job start-up.
