Once JANCOA managers determine where to place new machines, they consider what material was used to build the restrooms. In older buildings, restrooms tend to have been built with sturdier materials such as marble, ceramic, granite or metal that will not be damaged from the pressure of the cleaning machine, according to Bard.

However, restrooms in new buildings are often built with drywall and have laminate finishes that could be damaged by the water pressure from the cleaning equipment.

“So in a lot of buildings, you may not have the opportunity to use a pressure sprayer like you used to,” Bard says. “If it’s a drywall wall then you really can’t be in there blowing water everywhere.”

The janitorial staff at JANCOA go through extensive training on the cleaning equipment before they use it in the field. According to Bard, his company first schedules manufacturer training to get his management team up to speed on how to use the machines. The company has the manufacturer visit its training facility to do a training session for the staff. Then, when the new cleaning equipment comes into service, management trains the crew.

The feedback from the janitorial staff at JANCOA has been generally positive regarding the use of the restroom cleaning equipment, Bard says.

“The feedback with the smaller machines has been super positive. With the bigger machines, everybody loves them, but there was a lot of frustration over how big they were,” he says. “Having a machine that can be moved around from place to place easily really helps especially when you have people that can’t do heavy lifting.”
