5 Professional Cleaning Supplies Every Janitor Should Have


5 Professional Cleaning Supplies Every Janitor Should HaveIf you run a janitorial service, or are a facility manager for a growing organization, you likely understand the need for high quality cleaning supplies. There are consumer grade products and then there are professional cleaning supplies, and in commercial arenas, you really should never mix the two.

At Factory Direct Chemicals, we’ve long been serving the janitorial and facilities management industries for decades. We long ago began to understand the importance of high quality products, and when we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we simply went out and made our own. This is how Factory Direct Chemicals was born. Now we operate a large website where many of our customers purchase their maintenance supplies directly. We like to consider ourselves as a “one-stop shop” when it comes to all types of professional cleaning supplies.

Cleaning Supplies Every Janitor Needs

After more than a decade in the maintenance supply business, we developed a list of the top cleaning supplies that we think are valuable to every janitor. Feel free to reach out to our team if there’s a product that you simply can’t live without.

  1. All Purpose Degreaser – There are times where a simple multi-purpose cleaner will not do enough to get rid of stubborn grease. This is where a degreaser is incredibly important. We currently offer our Aero-Squirt Aerosol Citrus D-Limonene Foaming All-Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser that is a must have for any janitor.
  1. All Purpose Spray Cleaner – No matter what you’re cleaning, a basic all-purpose spray cleaner will give your janitorial staff incredible versatility. Regardless of the surface, a product like Total Solutions All Purpose Spray Cleaner will get rid of that tough dirt and grime that slows down any conscientious cleaning professional. This cleaner is non-abrasive making it safe to use on delicate materials like plastic and stainless steel.
  1. Disinfectant – A powerful cleaner and disinfectant like our Total Solutions Foaming Lemon Scented Cleaner / Disinfectant will make quick work of even the most noxious odors and messes. This product not only cleans and disinfects, but it also deodorizes the areas as well. The ingredients within this powerful industrial strength disinfectant are EPA registered to kill dangerous fungi, bacteria, and other harmful microbes. In addition, this product can be used on all hard, non-porous surfaces.
  1. Mold & Mildew Remover – Mold and mildew is a serious problem across our country. When it comes to keeping mold and mildew from growing and reproducing in your facility, no expense should be spared due to the health concerns of these dangerous materials. With our Lemo-Cide Professional Disenfecting Mildew, Virus & Mold Killer you can rest easy knowing that your office will be mold free and smelling great thanks to the mild lemon scent of this powerful cleaning product.
  1. Air Freshener – No janitorial job is complete without a lasting smell that helps to mask some of the not so nice odors that can be commonplace in bathrooms at businesses of all sizes. At Factory Direct Chemicals, we offer our Total Solutions Metered Air Fresheners, which can be used in conjunction with most automatic actuating aerosol dispensers to neutralize unpleasant odors around your facility. This product uses Ordenone, which is one of the most effective odor neutralizers currently on the market. This product also comes in a wide array of scents based on your needs.
