Essential Floor Cleaning Supplies You Need for Janitorial Work

To be able to do the best job possible, you will need the skills as well as the proper equipment. Whether you’re a new janitor who wants to do the best job for the first day or a seasoned veteran, everyone needs some essential floor cleaning supplies. If you’re hired to clean up a residential area, for instance, most homes will have a vacuum, broom or mop that you can use. For the other essentials, here is a small list of things you may need to carry:

  • Dusters
  • Cleaning Rags
  • Glass cleaning solution
  • Anti-Bacterial soap
  • Dish soap
  • A sponge or dish scrubber for the kitchen
  • Toilet brush
  • Plunger
  • Toilet bowl cleaner
  • Insecticide (should you need to do some pest control while cleaning)
  • Sanitizing Wipes
  • Floor cleaning solution
  • Bleach
  • Wood polish
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Air Freshener (for odor control)
  • Garbage bags

For items common in homes such as sponges, baking soda or plastic buckets, the home you are cleaning should be able to lend you the items that you may need. If you do find that the home you are servicing needs heavy-duty cleanup (and their vacuum cleaner just won’t cut it) you can opt to bring your own vacuum with various attachments or even add a few finishing touches, such as going over their hardwood floors with a floor burnisher to provide a distinct shine, after the initial cleaning.

At any point that you have concerns, and you are located in the surrounding area or surrounding areas of Dallas, Texas, call 214-238-9550 !

Situational Items

If you find that the home you are servicing has an outbreak of mold, for example, you would need to have a mold and mildew cleaner to take care of any damp spots on the floor or walls. And there is nothing wrong with having a little WD-40 handy.

If you’re called on to clean an office, extreme caution should be taken if you are called to clean up while there are businessmen and women busy at work, to avoid anyone slipping and injuring themselves.

For office cleanup, the basic items stay the same, but if you notice that the area that you are cleaning has a carpet, you may need to invest in a carpet cleaner to remove all the pesky stains, daily dirt, sand and other allergens that may cause sickness throughout the entire area, if left unchecked.
