Life can be funny, even in the cleaning world. The facility manager at a Ohio college decided to toss out the mops, buckets, brooms, and sprayers and switch to the No-Touch Cleaning system developed by Kaivac.
With this system, cleaning solution is applied to surfaces. The same areas are then blasted clean, and a built-in wet/vac picks up moisture and soil.
"At first there was a lot of resistance to these [No-Touch] machines," says the facility manager. "The custodians even thought [the machines were] being purchased to eliminate their jobs."
It took some convincing for the custodial workers to realize the machines were selected to improve their work, not end their jobs; they started using the equipment only reluctantly.
"Well, it's like night and day," says the manager. "They love the machines. They even squabble over them. We started with 29 No-Touch Cleaning systems; now we just purchased 11 more."
