Sanitizer continues to be important and this is not likely to change any time soon. As businesses and schools adapt to reopening in our new post-COVID reality there is an increased demand for the best industrial sanitizer.
If you need sanitizer for your employees or customers then you understand the importance of finding a good and dependable product that meets your needs.
Our founding brand, Superior Business Solutions, gets it and that’s why they created this post outlining the features to look for in sanitizer.
Find out how to shop smart when you need sanitizer.
8 Features to Look For in Industrial Sanitizer
1. Available Sizes
You likely have different needs when it comes to the amount of sanitizer needed in different situations. Working with one provider that can offer you sanitizer in different quantities from small to tanker truck loads makes it easy to stock up all at once.
2. Avoid Methanol
Sanitizer should contain alcohol, but it should not contain methanol, which can be dangerous.
3. Consistent Pricing
When specific items are in high demand there are, unfortunately, always supplies that increase their prices. Price gouging is unethical and it’s very disheartening to see this happen during a crisis.
While sanitizer is still in high demand, it is still available, so there is no need to pay unreasonable prices.
Stick to working with a supplier that charges fair prices.
Some businesses require their customers to purchase a minimum quantity. This is usually not a problem for large businesses that have a need for high quantities.
Smaller businesses, on the other hand, may not need to stock up, and hitting the minimums can prove to be challenging.
Before placing an order check to see if there are minimums and reach out to your contact if you have questions.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests using sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
If the number dips too low the sanitizer may not be effective.
Make sure the product you are buying gets the job done and kills germs, bacteria, and viruses.
6. Follow the Rules
The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) outlines formulas producers can use when manufacturing sanitizer. Before you make a purchase, double-check that the sanitizer you are about to buy was made following these guidelines.
7. Spray Option
Spray sanitizers can be used to disinfect hands and a variety of solid surfaces, like tables, doorknobs, phones, and other non-porous surfaces.
Gel sanitizer is great for keeping your hands clean.
Know what you need and understand what is available to best serve your needs.
8. Building Relationships
It’s important to get the supplies you need, but securing a long-term supplier who can continue to help you and address your needs is also important.
While making sure you have enough sanitizer right now is a very valid concern, it’s also a good idea to work with a credible and dependable vendor who can help you well into the future and continue to meet your needs.
