When it comes to your cleaning budget, you must make the best choices for your company’s situation. Labour is typically the biggest item on the list, so if there is an opportunity to be more efficient, it will impact your bottom line. When you invest in appropriate equipment, you increase the capacity of your staff, therefore affecting your bottom line. 

Consider the mop and bucket. It is the standard tool of the trade in many buildings and has been for years. But when you consider the advances in technology, is it time to invest in a new method? After all, we no longer use manual typewriters or depend on fax machines to transport information.

Roll Out the Red Carpet

Posted by Your Clean Resource on Apr 30, 2018 2:50:12 PM

Spring is finally here! It’s time to open things up, air them out and get rid of all the bits of winter that are sticking around. 

One of the hardest hit areas is the floor.  Winter boots bring snow, slush, sand and salt inside with them. Floors are particularly important to keep clean because they make an impression on people.  Surely, you’ve heard someone remark, “the house was so clean, you could eat off the floor”.

Wiping Out Kitchen Hazards

Posted by Your Clean Resource on Apr 26, 2018 10:30:19 AM

Your kitchen is the heart and soul of your restaurant and your success depends on it. Poorly cleaned surfaces and equipment can quickly result in bacteria, mold and other food-borne pathogens.

A frantic dinner rush can leave staff feeling exhausted and the thought of cleaning and sanitizing the kitchen can be overwhelming. Be sure you outline your cleaning protocols with new hires and keep them top of mind with staff meetings and internal communications.

Some jobs will need to be done several times throughout the day while others will be on a weekly or monthly basis. So, break it down with a handy schedule that includes specific instructions as well as recommended products. This will help keep your staff on track when it comes to keeping a spotless cooking area.

Clean Earth

Posted by Your Clean Resource on Apr 20, 2018 12:19:05 PM

The year was 1970. People were driving muscle cars around without a thought about emissions. The word environment was not yet in the common vernacular. But, the times, they were a-changin’. After an oil spill in California, the idea was formed to harness the energy of the anti-war protests and activism of the day and focus it on air and water pollution. On April 22, 1970 the very first Earth Day was observed.

A lot has changed in the past 48 years. People are much more aware of the environment and the impact of our actions. This year, Earth Day is focused on ending plastic pollution.

Checkers wants to partner with you to promote awareness of green activities and products. This article will highlight some areas of focus.

Posted by Your Clean Resource on Mar 29, 2018 1:21:01 PM

Stepping into a smelly washroom is an immediate turn off. The assumption is that the facility is not clean – which is true. Smells come from bacteria that lurk in the far reaches of the bathroom. While scrubbing and mopping make it look clean, this typically spreads the germs around and makes it worse. 

Unfortunately, a stinky washroom can cast a negative pall on the entire establishment. This can turn customers off regardless of what you’re selling.
