CHARGING BUCKETS SAVE MONEY

CHARGING BUCKETS SAVE MONEY

Have you ever emptied a mop bucket and wondered how you could keep all those expensive cleaning chemicals from going down the drain? Have you ever sprayed a cleaner or disinfectant and wondered how harmful it is for you to be inhaling it? Charging buckets can solve both of these concerns.

The beauty of using microfiber with a charging bucket is nothing goes to waste. Once you get the amount of liquid per pad or towel dialed in (read more about that below), your microfiber will absorb all of it leaving the buckets dry. There are no leftover chemicals, nothing goes down the drain. Imagine being able to mop an office building, hospital patient rooms or several homes without ever wringing out a mop pad or having to transport chemicals to the job.

You can also use microfiber towels with our small charging bucket to get the same savings on chemicals and to prevent the need to spray a fine mist of chemicals which will inevitably be inhaled. Simply load up the charging bucket with towels, pour in a measured amount of disinfectant or cleaner, give the liquid time to wick through the towels then use the perfectly moistened towels to clean, scrub or disinfect.

The hard part of using the charging buckets is getting the right amount of liquid in so the microfiber will be perfectly moistened. It will take some experimenting on your end to find the right amount of moisture for your needs. We’ve spent some time experimenting with the buckets here and this is what we’ve found:

Microfiber Wet Mop Pads
        Cleaning: 1.25 ounces per 6” of pad – 18” Pad would need 3.75 ounces of liquid
        Disinfecting: 1.5 – 2 ounces per 6”of pad – 18” Pad would need 4.5 – 6 ounces of liquid
 
Microfiber Towels
        Cleaning / Scrubbing: 1.5 ounces per 12×12 towel, 2.5 ounces per 16×16 towel
        Disinfecting: 1.75 – 2 ounces per 12×12 towel, 2.875 – 3.25 ounces per 16×16 towel
 

For cleaning you want the microfiber to be damp, not dripping. If the microfiber’s completely saturated with liquid it has no ability to absorb soil. Conversely, when disinfecting you’re really just using the microfiber to apply the disinfectant. The microfiber should be nearly saturated. To properly disinfect a surface the surface must remain wet for an amount of time (dwell time or contact time). Refer to the label on your disinfectant for proper dwell times and adjust how much disinfectant you add to the charging bucket accordingly.
