H2Only Renewable Cleaning Launches Renewable Cleaning Program at Somerset Academy

Doral, FL (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Ruben Rives, principal of H2Only Renewable Cleaning, has announced a Renewable Cleaning Program - using sustainable methods, better equipment and cleaning processes - at Somerset Academy; one of the first FL-state charter schools accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-CASI).

According to Rives: “At Somerset’s North Lauderdale campus, we clean for health and see strong benefits in cleanliness, operations, workloading, indoor environmental health and management. We focus on both cleaning and infection control, using traditional and ‘chemical-free’ - i.e., water only - methods in a well-defined structure.”

Besides an organized process employing time and motion studies and employee input to arrive at best practices, the North Lauderdale Renewable Cleaning program uses microfiber tools, backpack vacuums, squeegee-based flat surface tools, crossover dispense-and-vac, and autoscrubber-like units.

“Wipers and mops tend to spread contamination, while squeegee-based flat surface tools, dispense-and-vac and AutoVac units remove it,” notes Rives’ operations consultant Rex Morrison.

Using a water only process, Rives’ crew can remove 99.9% of bacteria from desktops in less time than wiping, using a microfiber applicator to apply water and agitate, then squeegeeing off the solution.

In restrooms, the dispense-and-vac – having a compact mop-bucket-sized footprint – enables applying solution (generally just water), agitating with a brush or water pressure, then vacuuming soils, urine, germs, and moisture - leaving the surface dryer and more hygienic than traditional mop and bucket methods, with a much higher bacterial removal rate than before.

“Urine, related stains and smell can be removed easily; soil is extracted, bacteria thoroughly removed - and that’s key,” said Rives. The method is better than hand mopping and needs fewer chemicals to remove soils, since the power is in the process not the chemicals, notes Morrison.

Tests in Lauderdale’s hallways show the AutoVac - an affordable autoscrubber-like tool that transforms through a simple conversion of the dispense-and-vac – cleans effectively and 25% faster than an autoscrubber and 40% faster than hand mopping. In the gymnasium, it’s 20% faster than an autoscrubber and 47% faster than hand mopping, early tests show.

“Charter schools can set their own policies related to healthful cleaning practices, and this has given them an edge in piloting better programs,” said Morrison. The right tools enable the Renewable Cleaning process in Somerset Academy in a well-orchestrated system. Rives and Morrison are hopeful as they see more charter schools looking to start a Renewable Cleaning program. Rives offers free phone consultations for charter schools interested in Renewable Cleaning, and reports interest nationwide.

“Somerset Academy believes…a school should be a place where students love to learn…[and] teachers love to teach…” according to the its website - This is evident in the results produced by the Renewable Cleaning for Health program at the Lauderdale campus.
