Cleaning when a facility is open, occupied and operating used to be unheard of – after all, those noisy vacuums, dangerously wet floors, and soggy carpets were both a nuisance and a danger. But times have changed.
In a perfect world, your cleaning tasks would dictate your hard- and soft-floor cleaning equipment needs and purchases. But, truth be told, more often than not budget is the deciding factor in equipment selection. Whether your budget is big or small, you can still make educated equipment choices that will ensure you get the job done right.
