Wisconsin Prison Adopts No-Touch Cleaning

  • Wisconsin Prison Adopts No-Touch Cleaning

The Wisconsin Secure Program Facility (WSPF), Boscobel, WI, reports they are now cleaning the facility using No-Touch Cleaning® equipment developed by Kaivac, Inc.

 

The 205,590-square-foot facility retains its own custodians and has nine cleaning workers and one lead custodian maintaining the entire institution.

 

According to a report by WSPF, using the Kaivac equipment, "the [high-quality] cleanliness the prison strives for is very apparent."

 

The Kaivac system applies cleaning chemicals to surfaces to be cleaned. The same areas are then rinsed, washing away soils, which are then vacuumed up using the systems built-in wet/vac.

 

"The Kaivac system decreases the risk of contamination to both staff and inmates," according to the WSPF report. "It also allows staff to be in and out of areas more rapidly, improving worker productivity and increasing the number of cells cleaned."

 

According to Matt Morrison, communications manager for Kaivac, studies by ISSA, the leading trade association for the professional cleaning industry, report that using no-touch equipment can be as much as two-thirds faster than using conventional cleaning procedures such as mops and buckets.

 

Further, studies presented by the Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) indicate that cleaning with the no-touch system more effectively removes contaminants from surfaces.

 

"The spread of disease, including increasing cases of MRSA, are very serious problems in correctional facilities," adds Morrison. "It's because [no-touch] systems are fast and effective that prison administrators at WSPF and other facilities are selecting them.
