Never Take Cleaning Advice From a Mop
Conventional cleaning with chemicals, mops, and rags may seem like the most cost effective solution, but they actually come with many hidden costs and dangers. For example, cleaning professionals have long suffered from knee pain associated with scrubbing floors and toilets. They’ve also endured the dangers of inhaling toxic chemicals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) associates many occupational diseases among cleaning professionals with the use of several disinfectants. Furthermore, businesses may lose revenue when customers are unable to access a wet aisle for 30 minutes or more. And then there are the slip-and-fall hazards that wet floors present. Icky the Mop would have you believe that this is just the way it is, and there is nothing to be done. But Kaivac knows better. Watch the videos below as Icky unknowingly proves over and over again, that Kaivac is the better solution.
Icky Gives Benji Advice on How to Avoid the Pain of Cleaning Toilets
Most cleaning professionals agree the worst part of their job is cleaning restrooms. That’s not surprising considering that cleaning restrooms usually requires the cleaning professional to get on their hands and knees to scrub the toilets and surrounding areas. Kaivac has the solution, but Icky the Mop tells Benji that he can avoid the pain of cleaning toilets by using kneepads, cleverly avoiding the mention of a Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning System.
Icky Demonstrates His Aisle Shutdown Power to Benji
In this video, Icky introduces Benji to the power of the mop. Mopping typically shuts down an aisle for 30 to 40 minutes to clean up a spill and to allow for drying time. According to Icky, this is when mops “own the aisle.” Kaivac’s Omniflex SUV cleans up a spill three to four times faster than a mop, but where’s the fun in that?
Icky Teaches Benji about the Importance of Chemicals
Believe it or not, chemicals are not the best way to fight infections like norovirus. To Icky’s dismay, it’s not about the chemicals used; it’s about the removal of unwanted soil and debris from surfaces. But Icky is not a believer in the Kaivac approach. Besides, he loves the smell of bleach in the morning.
