Integrating new ways of cleaning for health and safety

Health and safety is a high priority matter
where cleaning can make a difference


A new approach to how we clean

The last couple of years has taught us to adapt and integrate new ways of cleaning. It has been about unveiling new approaches to performing day-to-day cleaning tasks while finding ways to achieve even higher cleaning standards.

The coming months and years will likely show us that these changes are here to stay. Health and safety have always been a top priority for many of us, but today cleaning provides reassurance for customers and users that the spaces we use are healthy and safe, because they are being cleaned more often – and more thoroughly.

Cleanliness has become synonymous with safety

To maintain and create welcoming spaces for us to live and work depends on our ability to conceive and apply new ideas towards our cleaning and sanitizing practices. This is something that is of high focus for us, and where we believe a partnership with our customers will flourish through closer dialogue, learning more about their cleaning challenges, and collaborating to find the best solutions to meet their needs.

Finding the right approach together

No matter what sector you’re in, adapting to this new scope will bring questions and challenges, such as:

  • what procedures should be implemented
  • what cleaning solutions work best
  • how can you best support your cleaning crew and keep them safe
  • how to best manage the increased need for cleaning within existing time and labor constraints

For more than 100 years, we have been working with our customers to solve cleaning challenges. We thrive by joining forces with our customers.

We invite you to join us in the conversation about how we, as an industry, can tackle new challenges together. Let’s partner up and change things for the better.
