Airport Cleaning: Unique Challenges, Creative Solutions

The high amount of traffic in airports and other public transportation buildings and complexes creates some unique cleaning challenges. Airport cleaning staff has to deal with very large areas that see thousands of people pass through each week. The larger area combined with the increased soil and germs passengers bring in calls for some creative solutions. Fussy, detailed cleaning can't be done on a daily basis, but certain tasks can't wait. Daily floor and restroom maintenance of airports, bus stations, and the like call for techniques and equipment that clean larger areas in shorter amounts of time.

Restrooms

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world's busiest airport, has nearly 1,300 toilets. Certainly, this is no job for rags and buckets. These rooms call for a wholesale approach to cleaning. In order to be efficient with this kind of mammoth task, the daily cleaning regimen has to cover the largest area with the least possible time and effort. With Kaivac's No-Touch system, employees only need to spray a cleaning solution over the offending surfaces: walls, toilets, urinals, sinks, and the floor. After allowing the solution to sit for a moment, workers use a high-pressure spray of fresh water to remove the cleaning solution, soil, and germs from the entire room. A high-performance vacuum that sucks all the moisture from the floor, leaving it completely dry to the touch and safe to walk on, completes the job in a fraction of the time of other cleaning methods.

Floors

Of course, no part of a busy airport sees more action than the floor. It's not hard to imagine that, according to CNN, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport goes through 160,200 gallons of floor cleaner each year. Travelers track in soil, moisture, and germs in all kinds of weather, and the high level of foot traffic means there is more dirt to be cleaned every single day. For large, open, heavily trodden areas like these, an autoscrubber might be the right solution. They clean and shine wide swaths of floor at each pass. Another option that might be the right solution for your airport cleaning needs is an automated floor cleaning machine like the AutoVac. It is as effective as an autoscrubber and cleans and dries large areas of floor space in a short amount of time.

 

Airport cleaning takes some creative problem solving, but with the right equipment, your crew can get the job done.
