Creating an Organised Cleaning Equipment Storage System

Alright, folks, let’s talk about something that doesn’t often get the limelight but deserves a standing ovation – an organised cleaning equipment storage system! Yep, you heard that right. From brooms and mops to those trusty cleaning machines, having a designated space for them can turn your workspace into a productivity powerhouse. So, buckle up as we dive into the world of squeaky cleaning equipment storage system tailored to the needs of your workspace.

Understanding the Importance of Organisation

Before delving into the specifics, let’s take a moment to understand why having an organised cleaning equipment storage system matters in a workspace setting. Imagine a busy office or commercial facility where efficiency is paramount. Having easy access to cleaning tools, ensures that cleaning tasks can be carried out swiftly without disrupting daily operations.

Assessing Your Workspace


Alright, time to channel your inner space detective. Whether you’re managing an office, warehouse, or retail paradise, understanding the layout and dimensions will help you plan effectively. Take note of any areas that require specialised cleaning equipment, such as hard-to-reach corners or high-traffic zones.

Decluttering and Sorting

Before you go all Marie Kondo on your cleaning supplies, it’s time for a decluttering extravaganza. Bid farewell to broken brooms, ancient mops, and that sponge that’s seen better days. Embrace the art of letting go and make room for the real MVPs of your cleaning squad.

Choosing the Right Storage Solutions

Now, onto the fun part – picking the perfect storage solutions for your cleaning gear. Here are some options that’ll make your storage dreams come true:

1. Shelving Units

Shelving units are like the chameleons of storage – they adapt to any situation. Opt for the heavy-duty kind that can handle the weight of your trusty cleaning machines and gear. A bonus if you install them near your cleaning hotspots for easy access.

2. Hooks and Hangers

When in doubt, hang it out! Hooks and hangers are your go-to for keeping brooms, mops, and dusters off the ground and within arm’s reach. Pro tip: go for the heavy-duty ones to support those bulkier equipment.

3. Baskets and Bins

Baskets and bins are your secret weapons for corralling those smaller cleaning supplies. Think sponges, brushes, and accessories for cleaning machines – they all have a cozy home in these handy containers.

4. Carts and Trolleys

For those who like to clean on the go, carts and trolleys are your new best friends. Load them up with all your cleaning essentials and wheel them from room to room like a whirlwind of cleaning efficiency.

Designing Your Storage Layout

Once you’ve selected your storage solutions, it’s time to design the layout of your cleaning equipment storage system. Consider the following factors:

1. Accessibility

Arrange your frequently used items – including those mighty cleaning machines – at eye level for easy access. Save the lower shelves for the heavy hitters to avoid any lifting-induced mishaps.

2. Flow

Ensure there’s enough space between storage units for easy movement, especially if you’re using carts or trolleys. Keep pathways clear of obstacles to facilitate efficient cleaning routines.

3. Visibility

Opt for transparent storage containers or open shelving to easily spot what you need when you need it. Label shelves and bins accordingly to streamline the retrieval process and prevent misplaced items. No more digging through mystery bins in search of that elusive sponge!

Implementing Maintenance Strategies

Maintaining an organised cleaning equipment storage system requires ongoing effort. Here are some strategies to keep your workspace clutter-free:

1. Regular Cleaning Sessions

Set aside time each week or month to review and declutter your cleaning supplies, including industrial/commercial cleaning machines. Dispose of any unused or expired items and replenish supplies as needed to avoid disruptions in your cleaning routines.

2. Equipment Maintenance

Give your trusty cleaning machines some TLC by cleaning filters, replacing worn-out parts, and scheduling regular check-ups. If you are using one of our cleaning machines, we can service for you. After all, a well-maintained machine is a happy machine.

3. Storage Maintenance

Every now and then, give your storage layout a little makeover to keep things fresh. Toss out any unnecessary clutter, reorganise as needed, and voila – your storage space is ready for its close-up.


And there you have it – creating an organised cleaning equipment storage system tailored to the needs of your workspace is a worthwhile investment of time and effort. By assessing your space, decluttering, choosing the right storage solutions, and implementing maintenance strategies, you can ensure that your cleaning supplies are always readily available when needed. Take pride in maintaining a clean and organised workspace, and enjoy the benefits of increased productivity and efficiency.
