It’s that time of the year again. School is almost out for the summer, but you’ve still got a substantial portion of your cleaning budget that still needs to be spent. After all, if you don’t spend it, you’ll lose it! No need to worry; Nichols is Here to Help! Here are some tips on how your budget can be used effectively at the end of the school year:
- Equipment: Especially for those with larger amounts left in the budget, equipment purchases can be a fast, effective way to quickly eat away at the surplus. From autoscrubbers and burnishers to disinfectant sprayers and floor sweepers (just to name a few!), there is a wide variety of equipment available to invest in that can serve a variety of needs. These solutions not only can balance the accounting, but they can also—more importantly—drastically improve the way you clean your facilities.
- Cleaning Tools: For smaller facilities or budgets, investing in quality cleaning tools may be the more appropriate way to go. Mops and brooms wear out quickly when used throughout the course of a school year. Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a new cleaning cart. Maybe you need more durable waste receptacles. In any case, these can be an affordable way to invest your budget.
- Shop Ahead for Next Year: It takes a lot of cleaning product to keep a school district open for an entire year. Copious amounts of disinfectants, cleaners, degreasers, and sanitizers for all kinds of surfaces, towels, tissues, wipers, and hand soap for your restrooms, and much more all work together to make that happen. Don’t forget the dispensers to house them as well! If you know you’ll use it, it may not hurt to get a head start on next year.
