Your ‘Cleaning Chemicals’ Buying Guide

Cleaning Chemicals Buying Guide

The Oasis Buying Guide to ‘Cleaning Chemicals’ will help you understand the range of detergent cleaners available for your commercial operation, whilst highlighting the appropriate option to suit your needs.

Thorough cleaning procedures in commercial establishments are vital – for both hygiene ratings and the health and wellbeing of your staff and customers. Cleaning eliminates germs along with dirt and dust, resulting in better indoor air quality, safe touch points and surfaces. But without the right cleaning chemicals, your commercial establishment could be at risk.

In this buying guide, we’ll highlight a range of chemicals from renowned brands, industrial strength cleaners designed for food businesses and ecologically friendly ranges.

  • As bathrooms tend to be small and enclosed, look for cleaning chemicals that are safe to use around those with allergies.

Ecological Cleaning Products

It’s no secret that certain cleaning chemicals are harmful to our environment. They can damage our waterways, destroy the ozone layer and create single-use waste. Ecological cleaning chemicals, on the other hand, are kinder to our planet; they can deliver great results, and some are just as effective at killing bacteria.

Our ecological cleaning chemical recommendations include; 

 

Before choosing an ecological cleaning alternative, here’s some key points to consider. 

  • Greener products are typically safer for humans; they tend to be odor free, without risk of chemical burns or irritation.
  • To ensure that your chosen ecological alternative is just as effective as a regular chemical cleaner, look out for ingredients such as thymol.
  • Ecological cleaners do tend to be pricier than mass-produced chemicals.
