The key to saving on cleaning is based on correct training and choice of products. Save on cleaning? Yes, but not at any price. Hygiene tasks are something so banal that, very often, we make the mistake of reducing expenses at all costs of this item.
As we have repeated frequently, we should see the cleaning and disinfection of spaces as an investment and not so much as an expense.
And it is that in areas such as health or industry, hygiene is synonymous with health and well-being for people.
Savings in cleaning must live, mainly, in the optimization of time and product consumption and not so much in the purchase of material.
In this article, we offer some recommendations to save on cleaning without it ceasing to be effective.
- Use dosing systems to optimize the consumption of detergents and disinfectants
- Select only the chemical products you need for cleaning
- Limits the action of disinfectants depending on the risk presented by the space
- Invest in professional cleaning material and hygienic design
- Take care of the cleaning staff and offer constant training
- We help you save on cleaning
Use dosing systems to optimize the consumption of detergents and disinfectants
Chemical overdosing is a real problem during cleaning and disinfection tasks.
We often believe that by using a larger quantity of products, we will get better hygiene results.
However, overdosing ends up generating resistance in some microorganisms and entails extra costs for companies.
Dosing systems help determine the correct and necessary dose of product for hygiene tasks, contributing to savings and turning cleaning and disinfection into effective actions.
We perfectly integrated the Dosey system into cleaning trolleys and combine a controlled dosage system and cloth impregnation for more comfortable and optimal hygiene.
Select only the chemical products you need for cleaning
Currently, the supply of chemicals for cleaning is so wide that, frequently, we fill our warehouses with products that we really do not need.
For cleaning, we only have to differentiate between three types of detergents: alkaline, neutral and acidic, which will help us to remove traces of grease, clean the most delicate surfaces or finish with traces of lime.
From here on, the different compositions and formulations will make the detergents more or less effective on certain surfaces (glass, stainless steel, plastics, etc.).
We need to have a wide range of ergonomic cleaning materials, chemical dosing systems, and transport trolleys, among others.
Limits the action of disinfectants depending on the risk presented by the space
As with overdosing on chemical products. It is also common to opt for the most powerful disinfectants and apply them to any surface.
It is important to understand the action of disinfectants. Must be proportional to the risks that each space presents. If not, there is the possibility that the viruses or bacteria create resistance.
Thus, we will choose low-level disinfectants for areas with lower risk. Medium-level disinfectants for moderate-risk areas, and we will limit the use of high-level disinfectants for the most critical areas of hospitals or health facilities.

Invest in professional cleaning material and hygienic design
The phrase “cheap is sometimes expensive” makes even more sense when we talk about cleaning.
The use of low-quality cleaning material, besides offering a shorter useful life for the products, means that there are greater possibilities of detachment and, therefore, a greater risk of contamination.
Besides considering the quality and hygienic design of the cleaning material, it is important to pay attention to its ergonomic qualities.
Take care of the cleaning staff and offer constant training
Chemical products associate with muscle damage or poisoning most cleaning staff sick leave during work.
One solution to reduce the volume of casualties is to offer continuous training to keep staff updated on the regulations and to prevent risks during the handling of chemicals.
In addition, equipping staff with ergonomic products also prevents muscle ailments.
The use of cleaning trolleys facilitates the transport of products and speeds up the times used for hygiene. We help you save on cleaning.
