3 Crucial Steps for Safe Vacuum Use in Janitorial Services

January 12, 2024 - Posted By Livia Valpassos

As leaders in janitorial services, we understand the importance of a safe and healthy environment. Today, let's talk about safety, mainly when using standard cleaning tools like vacuum cleaners.

Vacuum cleaners, while essential for maintaining cleanliness, come with their safety considerations. Improper use can lead to injuries or accidents. Here are three essential guidelines to stay safe while using vacuum cleaners at home and in the workplace:

  1. Check the equipment regularly, ensuring the vacuum is in good condition. Damaged cords or improper assembly can lead to hazards.

  2. Properly use the equipment, following the instructions for safe operation. Avoid using vacuums on wet surfaces to prevent electrical risks.

  3. Prioritize safe storage by unplugging your vacuum in a dry, safe place to prevent accidents and prolong its life.

These practices promote a safe environment both at home and in the workplace. Our BEST team is trained rigorously on correctly handling cleaning equipment, including vacuums, to ensure they stay safe while creating safe environments.
