Choosing the right janitorial supplies for your company can make for a cleaner work environment and more productive workforce.
Itâ€™s probably something thatâ€™s way down on your companyâ€™s to-do list, but choosing the rightÂ janitorial suppliesÂ can have a significant impact on your day-to-day operations. And unless youâ€™re in the industry, it can be difficult to decipher which products are best suited for your intended application.
To help you make an informed decision, hereâ€™s a list of things youâ€™ll want to consider before committing to a janitorial cleaning supplies vendor.
1. Does the product actually work?
There is a wide range of products out there, and the first thing you need to determine is whether the ones you choose work as advertised. If they donâ€™t, youâ€™ll be wasting money, creating more work for your employees and reducing productivity.
Thatâ€™s why companies such as JET Uniform & Supply offerÂ janitorial productsÂ they recommend with confidence. From cleaners to strippers and floor finishes to disinfectants, JETâ€™s products are guaranteed to work.
For cleaning products, questions youâ€™ll want answers for include:
- Can you dilute it?
- Is it easily applied?
- What is the dwell time (time required to kill germs and bacteria)?
- Is it easily rinsed?
- How long does it take to dry?
2. Is the product time-efficient compared to other options?
If youâ€™re testing a new product, donâ€™t be afraid to give it a thorough head-to-head against one you already use. Also make sure it works in concert with the other products that comprise your overall cleaning program.
What it boils down to is this: Does the product youâ€™re using allow employees to perform a cleaning task effectively and in the shortest amount of time possible?
3. Does the product support your business philosophies?
Every decision you make for your company is a reflection of your business philosophy, including cleaning supplies. If you value environmentally friendly practices and are interested in minimizing your companyâ€™s ecological impact, then choosing â€œgreenâ€ cleaning products is a wise investment.
JET carries a range of environmentally friendly products that are also effective. Their representatives take the time to educate and reassure clients that green products are the right choice for their companies and the environment.

4. Does your supplier offer other services?
Being able to manage multiple aspects of your business operation under one account saves time and money, and it also reduces the possibility of logistical errors. If youâ€™re already purchasing your supplies from one company, why not see if they offer other products and services such as:
- Floor Mat and Mop rentals
- Industrial laundry for uniforms and restaurant supplies
- Industrial mending for uniforms, coveralls and other workwear
- Linen roll towel service for bathrooms
- Custom embroidery for uniforms
