Standardize Your Cleaning Program with Eco

Standardize Your Cleaning Program with Eco

The Eco® Proportioning Program can help standardize cleaning in any facility. With cleaners, disinfectants, sanitizers, and odor eliminators all dispensable from one system, Eco makes cleaning easy for staff of any facility.

There are three compact Eco proportioning systems, made to fit in virtually any custodial closet. Designed for broad spectrum cleaning, the Eco Pro can dilute for up to six different applications. The more compact Eco Element and Edge are designed for remote, satellite, and focused applications, each diluting for up to three applications. Each proportioning system operates the same, automatically diluting products with the press of a button, taking the guess work out of product dilution.

Eco’s extensive product line provides products to clean any part of your facility. They are each color and number coded to make proportioning even easier. Each product’s number and color match with its corresponding bottle and proportioning system dispenser. Recently a church in Phoenix, AZ switched from ready-to-use products to the Eco Proportioning Program. They had also been using several different product dispensers throughout their facilities, making diluting cleaners a confusing, time consuming process. The Eco proportioning systems automatically diluted products and each Eco product, bottle, and dispenser is labeled with a corresponding color and number making it easy to distinguish between products. Switching to Eco helped consolidate their cleaning supplies and develop a better cleaning system.

For schools looking to implement the Eco Proportioning Program, Buckeye’s Honors Custodial Training Program can help guide staff as they clean. Available 24 hours a day, the Honors Program provides training in routine cleaning, restroom, shower and locker room cleaning, carpet care, hard floor care, gym floor care, food service procedures, summer cleaning procedures, and product safety. The program presents easy to follow procedures that are researched and proven to increase efficiency with videos, tests, training manuals, product literature, and wall charts.

Green Cleaning with the Eco Proportioning Program

Green Cleaning with the Eco Proportioning Program

In the cleaning industry, being green is more than providing eco-friendly chemistry. Buckeye’s Eco® Proportioning Program is committed to providing the most innovative, high performance and cost-effective products, packaging, and proportioning systems to promote human health and safety.

Green Seal Certified Products

Several Eco products are Green Seal® certified. One of the first ecolabeling nonprofits, Green Seal has pioneered the movement, setting high standards for human health, reduced environmental impact, and excellent performance. Green Seal has certified thousands of products in the hopes of producing a greener, healthier world.

Eco Green Seal certified products exemplify our commitment to manufacturing safer products for the worker and environment. In fact, Eco Green Seal certified products not only outperform other green cleaners, they outperform other conventional chemistries.  

Packaging 

Eco products are packaged with reliable and recyclable materials to ensure worker and environmental safety.

Eco 1.25 L Bags

  • Hermetically sealed to ensure no contamination.
  • Flexible to eliminate product waste, delivering a 99% evacuation rate.
  • Manufactured with 83% less plastic than rigid containers.
  • New metering plug in every bag ensures no tip clogging and highly accurate dilution.
  • Spill proof to prevent contact with concentrated product.
  • Compact size for easy transport and storage.

Eco Outer Box and Inner Carton Packaging

Eco outer box packaging is recyclable, double wall corrugated and made from 41% recycled material. Eco inner carton packaging is made from 100% recycled paperboard and 35% post-consumer material.

Eco Proportioning System

Eco proportioning systems were designed with employee safety in mind. They automatically dilute products, eliminating direct contact with concentrated products and ensuring products are diluted according to manufacturer specifications. The concentrated products diluted by Eco proportioning systems require less packaging and weigh less, eliminating additional freight/fuel charges required to ship.

The Eco Pro, Eco Element, and Eco Edge proportioning systems are user friendly. All proportioning systems are color and number coded to correspond with product packaging, making it safe and easy for employees to operate the system.

Maximize Efficiency with the Eco Proportioning Program

Maximize Efficiency with the Eco Proportioning Program

From general cleaning to restroom cleaning and food service area cleaning, the wide range of necessary products can begin to add up. Keeping track of the dilution rate and application of each product can get overwhelming. It can start to waste the time of staff members and, in some cases, prevent them from cleaning and disinfecting properly. The Eco® Proportioning Program is designed to maximize efficiency with easy-to-operate proportioning systems, cohesive labeling, and outstanding product performance.

All Eco products are proportioned through Eco proportioning systems. Eco proportioning systems are automatic, compact, and self-contained with a cohesive user interface and experience. All three proportioning systems (Eco Pro®, Eco Element®, and Eco Edge®) have the same user interface with seamless push and lock buttons. All Eco products are diluted and dispensed with the push of a button, consolidating the dilution process for all facility cleaners and disinfectants.

Eco products use a unique and intuitive labeling system to help staff members easily identify products. Each Eco product has a corresponding color and number that can be found on the product packaging, spray bottle, and proportioning system. In combination with Eco’s proportioning systems, Eco’s labeling system simplifies the proportioning process for all staff members, helping them focus on the more important task of cleaning.

Eco products cover all your facility’s cleaning needs including food service and preparation areas, restrooms, carpet cleaning, and other general cleaning. When asked about his elementary school’s switch to Eco, one head custodian said, “Staff has really liked the change to Eco. The chemicals work a lot better than what we used in the past.” Because Eco products work better than other cleaners and disinfectants, staff members no longer have to waste time recleaning areas because residue has been left behind. Eco products work on the first application.

When Buckeye representatives install Eco proportioning systems, they train staff members on the proportioning systems and products. Eco also has customizable wall charts that staff members can refer to as they dispense products and clean. Staff members at one university commented on the helpfulness of Buckeye training and wall charts, saying, “Buckeye has been extremely helpful in making sure that our staff is properly trained. I like the wall charts above the systems. If I ever forget what a chemical does or how to install a bag, it’s posted right there.”

With Eco and the training provided by Buckeye representatives, staff members can be confident in a clean facility. To find out more about the Eco Proportioning Program, contact your local Buckeye representative.

Why does my floor finish show a haze or look cloudy?

Why does my floor finish show a haze or look cloudy?

A cloudy haze on your floor finish can be caused by a number of things. Often when an autoscrubber or burnisher is used, small scratches can appear on the floor. Scratches like these are normally unnoticeable, but can stand out on dark tile flooring. It may take some time and careful examination to determine the cause of haze in your facility.

If you find that while using an autoscrubber or burnisher, it is quickly becoming caked with floor finish, you may have an issue with detergents. Always make sure that floor finish is applied with a clean mop and wringer. If the wringer has detergent on it, you will contaminate the floor finish before you even apply it. Detergent can also cause a problem when too much has been left on the floor from daily activities like mopping. Over time, the detergent can build up and cause a sticky residue that will not respond to buffing. The detergent will be ground into the floor finish and cause the floor to look hazy.

However, detergents aren’t the only sources that can contaminate floor finish. Dust mops may also cause buff haze. When you use pre-treated dust mops, always remember to air them out the night before you use them. Often pre-treated dust mops are saturated with oils that can seep into the floor finish and even onto the tiles themselves if you do not air dry your dust mops first.

When you begin to notice scratches in your floor finish, you may need to examine your daily cleaning practices more closely. Many things can cause scratches. Are you using the right floor finish? Buckeye’s Hard Floor Program has a variety of floor finishes that are customizable for your facility. Are you using the right floor pads at the right pressure? If a pad is too aggressive or too much pressure is applied, you may be inadvertently stripping off floor finish. Is the floor clean? Are the floor pads clean? If not, you may be grinding dirt further into the floor as you attempt to clean. The Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program includes extensive training and customer support that can help solve almost any flooring issue. With Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program, you can ensure products are being used correctly and customize you floor care program for your facility.

Buckeye Eco® All-Purpose Cleaner E11

Unfortunately, when your floor finish is compromised in this way, you will most likely need to deep scrub and remove a few layers of floor finish. To do this, use Buckeye Eco® All-Purpose Cleaner E11/S11, diluted at 4 ounces per gallon with a blue, soft pad. Then, reapply. Once you have done that, be sure to clean the new floor finish with soft padded autoscrubbers. When using autoscrubbers or burnishers, you may benefit from beginning with a softer pad and then later moving to a more aggressive pad. Contact Buckeye International to discuss how we can help.
