A Clean Shop program should improve your shop’s efficiency, ultimately saving you money, increasing employee safety and productivity and reducing adverse emissions in the environment. If your current shop maintenance program lacks these criteria, it’s time to upgrade.
4 Essential Elements of a Clean Shop Program
1. Laundering Service
With a Clean Shop Service, fresh shop towels should be delivered and dirty towels removed to be laundered. This allows your employees to focus on their core responsibilities, increasing their engagement and productivity on the job.
2. Inventory Management
Replacing shop towels every time they get soiled can be time-consuming, expensive and wasteful. The right Clean Shop Service will manage your shop towel inventory to provide a continuous supply of reusable, freshly-laundered shop towels and a convenient means of shop towel disposal.
3. Provide a Safe and Efficient Parts Washer
Look for a program that provides a water-based parts washer to reduce your operating costs by eliminating aerosol brake cleaners and reducing hazardous by-products. Water-based parts washers can also protect the well-being of your employees by eliminating exposure to toxic fumes and chemicals caused by harsh cleaners.
4. Consistent Professional Service
The right Clean Shop Program will provide a reliable, trained service representative to visit your shop, remove soiled towels, deliver fresh towel, refill cleaning chemicals, check cleaning agent temperatures and hoses, ensuring your shop is working at peak performance at all times.
