Reducing Water Waste through Responsible Cleaning

Due to a global water shortage, water consumption and conservation continues to be an ever-growing concern in all industries. The cleaning industry consumes an enormous amount of resources, most notably water. Water is used for all aspects of cleaning in facilities including carpet extraction, hard floor care, and mixing chemicals. Some hard floor machines can also waste water and cleaning solution. Moisture-Controlled Recycling Extractors, and low-moisture automatic floor scrubbers can help dramatically reduce your water footprint.

Consider These Facts:

  • Less than 1% of the Earth’s water is available for human use.
  • Lack of sanitation and clean water is the world’s biggest cause of infection.
  • 50% of schools in the world do not have access to clean, fresh water.
  • Each year, 443 million school days are lost around the world due to lack of clean water and sanitation.

Water concerns are not going away, and will likely impact business profits, production, and the ways people do everything from cleaning to cooling their facilities in future years. At Tornado, we care deeply about creating clean and healthy indoor environments, while conserving our planet’s natural resources.

Winter Cleaning: Water Conservation Tips for Cleaning Professionals!

  1. Use microfiber mop heads and cloths. A recent University of California study found that “microfiber [can] drastically reduce water, while still cleaning effectively”*
  2. Advanced hard floor scrubbers with cylindrical brush technology are considered to be low-moisture machines, consuming less water and cleaning solution.
  3. Avoid hosing down sidewalks, walkways, commercial kitchen floors, etc. A garden hose can use six to as much as 20 gallons of water per minute. Use buckets or high-pressure systems that combine air and water for more efficient cleaning.
  4. Auto-dilution systems can reduce water and chemical waste consumed when cleaning facility floors.
