How to Choose the Right Janitorial Products for Your Needs

How to Choose the Right Janitorial Products for Your NeedsEvery company’s cleaning needs are different; which is why it is important to choose a supplier that offers a wide range of cleaning products to help ensure you find exactly the right one to suit your requirements. There are many factors that you should take into consideration when choosing the right janitorial products to ensure you choose exactly the right product for your cleaning requirements. This will not only ensure that you do not waste money on the wrong product, but will also ensure that your cleaning meets the necessary hygiene requirements.

The property

One of the key factors you will need to take into consideration when choosing your janitorial products is the type of property you need to clean. An office block will have very different cleaning requirements to a school. If you are a cleaning company that specialises in residential houses, these will also have very different needs to commercial properties. While some cleaning products can be used across a variety of properties, often it is better to buy products that are specifically suited to the property you are cleaning.

Type of clean

The type of clean needs to be factored in when choosing your janitorial products. If an area needs a deep clean, for example, specialist products will need to be purchased for this. If, however, a simple surface clean is required more general cleaning products will be sufficient. As well as this, it will beneficial to buy larger containers, or even bulk buy, products that are required for areas that regularly need cleaning. Alternatively, if the type of clean does not happen very often, it is often preferable to buy a smaller product.

Legal requirements

Some premises will have legal requirements when it comes to health and hygiene. For example, schools, hospitals, kitchens and care homes all have hygiene standards that need to be met or it could result in the facility being closed down. When legal requirements are required it is essential to ensure that the cleaning products purchased will provide a clean that meets these standards. Often general, every day cleaning products do not meet the standards required and specially formulated products are need instead. Many products in our chemicals section have been formulated with legal requirements in mind and offer an extra strength clean.


Although budget should not determine the type of cleaning product you purchase it will have an impact. If your company is on a tight budget and regularly gets through a lot of cleaning products, bulk buying your cleaning supplies often saves money in the long term. For example, at Janitorial Direct we also offer a discount on many of our cleaning products when bought in bulk. No matter what your budget, however, it is essential that you purchase the right product for your cleaning needs and not simply the cheapest version as it might result in the area not achieving the hygiene standards needed.
