Improve Carpet Care with Buckeye

Advances in carpet design, manufacturing, and maintenance have made it a viable alternative to hard floors in many facilities. Carpets are natural filters, capturing most dirt and soil. However, they tend to hide dirt better than hard floors, so waiting to clean carpets until they look dirty is too late. To keep your carpeted floors looking their best, Buckeye offers routine, interim, and restorative maintenance procedures in their various maintenance training programs.

Buckeye’s training programs detail the maintenance needs of matting and wall to wall carpeting. Daily maintenance depends heavily on things like the amount of traffic in certain areas of your facility. Though daily maintenance can, for the most part, keep carpets and matting in your facility clean, interim and restorative procedures are also important. Over time, carpets can become soiled to the point where vacuuming and spot cleaning are not adequate. A more thorough surface cleaning or deep cleaning is needed. As winter approaches, winter weather may also require deeper carpet cleaning. Snow melt and other debris can quickly become embedded in carpeting or matting. Buckeye’s training programs supply a guide to deeper cleaning procedures as well.

Buckeye’s complete line of carpet care products can cover all of your facility carpet care needs. The Eco® Proportioning Program offers several carpet cleaning products, including Eco Carpet Spotter E51 and Eco Extraction Cleaner E52. With Eco, Buckeye makes it possible to standardize your facility’s cleaning program. Eco proportioning systems automatically dilute super concentrated products accurately every time. Whether diluting carpet care products, food service area products, or restroom cleaning products, Eco provides standardized operating procedures to your maintenance staff. Beyond that, the Eco Proportioning Program considers space availability, the number of products your facility will need, and whether or not those products require additional security.

Depending on the needs of your facility, Buckeye’s carpet care training programs and products can be customized to fit your needs. Because dirt can easily get embedded in carpet, it is important to clean your carpets often and well.

Discover the Effectiveness of Symmetry Products Through the Symmetry Challenge

Buckeye’s Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program is more than just its products. Symmetry offers added benefits like education and awareness tools, behavior modification tools, and point of care tools. Symmetry has many customizable features designed to help your facility build healthy hand hygiene practices.

However, the foundation of the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program lies in its products. Symmetry believes that the key to a good hand hygiene program is manufacturing products that people want to use in a reliable dispensing system. That’s why Symmetry products clean hands without drying them out and leave no sticky residue behind. Symmetry dispensers don’t drip and have large sight windows for checking product levels.

The best way for the people in your facility to see Symmetry’s products and dispensers is through a Symmetry Challenge. A Symmetry Challenge allows staff members to test Symmetry products and compare them to their current hand hygiene products. Recently a hospital in Cleveland, OH was looking for new hand hygiene products. They chose to conduct a Symmetry Hand Hygiene Challenge in their facility. Staff members had been complaining about their hand hygiene products drying out their hands. With the ability to compare Symmetry to the products they had been using, it was immediately clear that Symmetry products were gentler on their hands. Of the 117 participants, 108 chose Symmetry over their previous products.

A Symmetry Challenge allows you to compare products and dispensers. When participants have the chance to compare Symmetry to other programs, they overwhelmingly choose Symmetry. Beyond comfort, Symmetry products are high quality and low cost. Symmetry hand sanitizers kill 99% of germs with comprehensive efficacy data.

Encouraging proper hand hygiene starts with providing products people want to use. The Symmetry Challenge is the simplest way to evaluate hand hygiene products and begin improving proper hand hygiene practices in your facility.
