When Jess Baidwan started working for the Southern Ute Indian Tribe in Colorado, there were more than 100 chemical solutions on the 6,000-square-foot government
campus. After enlisting his staff to take a detailed inventory of the chemicals on site, his team was able to get that number down to six.
In his article, "Simplifying Custodial Chemical Use," Baidwan provides five steps on how custodial teams can streamline chemicals from a list of many to just a few; however, having knowledge about the ingredients in each product and how they will impact your facilities' surfaces can help to make those decisions. This Educational Quick Clip from ISSA, featuring industry veteran Anthony Trombetta, provides a quick overview of chemical properties and how they can affect different types of surface areas.
