Question

How does the production rate for the "no touch" Kaivac approach compare to traditional methods of cleaning restrooms?


Answer

The production rate for a spray and vacuum restroom cleaning system such as Kaivac is at least equal to or better than traditional restroom cleaning times. Some manufacturers claim 1 to 2 minutes per fixture, where as the industry standard or average is often quoted as 2 to 3 minutes per fixture. However, the production rate in my opinion is not the primary benefit of such as system. In large areas, locker rooms and similar applications, the system is very efficient in removing contaminants.
I have recently seen a video on the Kaivac web page showing the results of their cleaning science research; very refreshing information. www.kaivac.com
