If you’re a professional cleaning contractor, the best time to add new customers is right around the corner. Here are a few ways spring cleaning can help you add extra value for your customers—and revenue for your business!

  1. Blast away parking lot grease and grime.

Commercial property owners want their properties to shine, too. Many reserve capital improvements for the warmer spring and summer months.

The exteriors of commercial businesses can benefit from a general pressure wash of its walls, driveways, and walkways. Pressure washing removes grime, grease, and hard water stains. It also prepares these surfaces for a fresh coat of paint or sealing. Sometimes, pressure washing can even replace the need to paint or resurface. Degreasers cut through grease and oil deposits from concrete drive-through lanes, parking lots, and gas station pump areas.

  1. Offer to deep clean decks and patios.

What happens to deck and patio surfaces after several months of being buried under rotting leaves, snow, and ice?

At the very least, they look aged well beyond their years. But more often, the grime and gunk presents a major slip-and-fall hazard. Rotting leaves and melting snow and ice can make decks and patios very slippery. Hard water stains and organic soils can erode concrete and natural stone surfaces.

A proper cleaning removes the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. But it also protects deck and patio surfaces against rot and the growth of mold and algae. Pressure washing these areas will make any deck or patio look like new and extend its life. With the right equipment and products, you can serve several customers a day, adding to your list of loyal customers.

  1. Scrub grills and BBQs.

Do your deck and patio customers have outdoor kitchens or at least a gas or charcoal grill? Spring is the perfect time to help them get their equipment ready for the grilling season.

Clean grill grates ensure food will taste great and protect cooks from greasy flare-up grill fires. Degreasers tackle tough grill and oven grease to make your customers’ grills shine and prepare them for a season of cook-outs.

Spring’s just around the corner. Seacole can help you get ready for a busy cleaning season. Contact us today to stock up on the industrial cleaning products you need.

Meet Anna Luckow, Seacole Marketing Coordinator

Anna Luckow_Spotted at Seacole

We had a chance this month to catch up with marketing coordinator Anna Luckow. Anna works on Seacole’s marketing initiatives, including our product brochures, blog, eNewsletters, and social media. Take a moment to get to know Anna!

What is your role at Seacole?

I’m the marketing coordinator.

What advice would you give people in your field?

No matter what industry you are in, learn to check in with your surroundings. It can only help you. It is tempting to get bogged down on the specific job details of your position. Training yourself to focus on the bigger picture and become more aware will help you do better!

What is your favorite thing about Seacole products?

I like seeing the end use of our products. Some of them are used for very unusual applications, such as keeping your scuba goggles from fogging!

What might someone be surprised to know about Seacole?

We have a chili cook-off every February! Volunteers bring in their favorite chili recipes. The rest of us get to taste them all, and then we vote for the winner. The winner gets a giant spoon trophy/plaque!

What’s the first thing you do when you get to work?

Drink my tea and get going on my to-do list!

Do you have a secret for staying productive?

I like to make a list at the very end of the day of the things I need to get done the next day. This way, when I sit down at my desk in the mornings, I don’t have to think about what I need to do. I can just start doing it!

Before starting your career, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I also work in a bike shop and lead bike rides for adults and mainly kids looking to get into cycling! Turns out you can learn a lot from those little munchkins!

What is something you can’t live without?

Family, bikes, and chicken wings!

Anna’s Motto:

The tallest oak in the forest was once just a little nut that held its ground.

3 Industrial Cleaning Challenges, Solved

Industrial Cleaning Challenges_Seacole

You don’t have to wait until spring to take care of your industrial cleaning challenges. Cold weather presents its own unique cleaning difficulties, from salt and slush to dust. Here are the three biggest industrial cleaning challenges we face in the winter.

Industrial Cleaning Challenge: Dangerous Shop Floors | Solution: Spraydet EL

It’s inevitable that your staff will track ice, snow, and salt into your facility. But leaving slush and salt on your floors can cause a slip-and-fall hazard, not to mention damage your floors. Regular detergent leaves residue behind that can cause even more slipping.

Seacole’s Spraydet EL is a low-residue liquid soap. While many of our customers use it for precision parts cleaning, its specialized formula is excellent for the mop bucket, too. Spraydet EL eliminates the slush and salt without leaving greasy floors behind. You can even use it in your electric floor scrubber with our Defoamer O to ensure no suds are left behind.

Industrial Cleaning Challenge: Stuffy, Grimy, Dusty Shipping/Receiving Docks | Solution: Total

When the weather’s frigid, your dock doors stay shut. Dust, grime, vaporized cutting oils, and metal grinding dust can’t escape and instead settle all over your surfaces. By the end of winter, your floors, walls, ceilings, and equipment are covered in grime and dust.

Fortunately, a single product can take care of every surface. Total is a liquid cleaner that can be diluted (or used concentrated) to blast away dust and grime from any surface. It’s perfect for pressure washers, the mop bucket, and spray bottles as a surface cleaner.

Industrial Cleaning Challenge: Industrial Hard Surfaces | Solution: Break

To truly clean your industrial hard surfaces, no household cleaners need apply. Heavy-duty equipment needs a powerful degreaser to keep it in good working order.

Our Break degreaser is formulated to cut through and remove grease, oil, and grime from your parts and equipment. It’s powerful enough to pre-treat components before cleaning them in a cabinet washer. But, Break is also gentle enough to use as a degreasing spray on shop desks, lunch room cabinets, switch plates, phones, and anywhere else greasy hands leave smudges.

You don’t need to wait until the snow’s melted to start your spring cleaning. Seacole has every product you need to keep your shop squeaky clean. Contact our team today.
