Mechanised cleaning for More efficiency
In a study conducted in the UK to quantify the social, environmental and economic contributions made by different professions, the job which topped the list for offering maximum benefit to the society was the cleaning job. The study reinforces the fact that cleaning activities help build a healthy and sustainable environment. It now becomes very important for governments, institutions, corporates, sectors like hospitality & healthcare and cleaning contractors to understand and implement various methods to make the maintenance jobs simpler, efficient and cost effective. One obvious route is the deployment of right equipment along with the cleaning workers to suit the cleaning needs. However, machines are yet to find their rightful place in India. Clean India Journal discusses with different end-users – client companies which have been shying away from investing in cleaning machines or housekeeping companies which have taken up mechanised cleaning to remain ahead in the race or companies which show inflated profits by using less efficient machines. CIJ also brings in the opinion of equipment suppliers who are educating customers about using right machines. There is also this section of equipment providers who offload machines on to customers who are not knowledgeable enough.
