Cleaning Information Cards – UPDATED – NEW & IMPROVED!

The Cleaning Information Cards (CIC) are a handy set of printable guides, covering all areas of cleaning from window cleaning to cleaning with a floor buffer/scrubber, and Health & Safety in cleaning. Scroll down for a sample and contents list.

Fully Customisable

These cards are fully customisable to your own colour-coding system, your own detergent and dilution and even your choice of equipment. All you do is simply tick the appropriate PPE and colour code tick box, and type in the equipment and detergent you use (including the dilution) in the relevant text boxes. We have also included two extra colour code spaces and their tick boxes should your area/building require them.

Completely Graphic-based

The cleaner training, developed over many years in the industry, is based on easy to understand language and graphics, with each cleaning task broken down to no more than four steps. Each cleaning task is condensed onto a single A4 double-sided card: The front side presents the whole cleaning process graphically in no more than 4 steps and serves a useful reminder to the staff after the initial training, whilst the reverse side presents a more detailed account and serves the initial training.
After many years of trial and research, it was found that this two-sided approach was the most efficient method of training, and maintaining that level of training. All you would have to do is simply add your cleaning product(s) and dilution ratios and equipment to each card. Your client would then add their colour-coding unique to their cleaning system.

Are you tendering to supply cleaning products and equipment?

Have you been asked to participate in a race with other suppliers to supply the cleaning needs to an organisation?

Why not add value to your tender with easy to understand cleaner training, customised to your cleaning products and equipment. Even if you were not tendering for a supply contract at this moment, a fully customised cleaner training would offer an enticing marketing package to your business.
