24 Oct Saving Water in Your Warehouse
Water is the most precious resource we have.
Unfortunately, in many countries (including Australia), we need to be very careful with how much water we use at home and at work.
Industrial businesses are big consumers of water, but with the right techniques it’s been estimated we can reduce our water use by 20-50% in factories and warehouses.
This not only saves the environment, but also saves your business money.
The following tips will help you save water in your warehouse.
Hire A Professional Sweep and Scrub Contractor
Cleaning the concrete surfaces of your warehouse yourself can be an expensive, time consuming and water wasting process.
Therefore, save water and time by hiring a professional sweep and scrub contractor to maintain your concrete surfaces.
Sydney Sweep and Scrub use modern, water saving equipment and expert practices which ensure we don’t waste any valuable H2O.
Furthermore, our cutting-edge machines utilise water recirculation systems which reuse water during the cleaning process.
All of this combines to create a comprehensive and eco-friendly cleaning process that is tried and tested.
Aside from contracting a professional to clean your space, ensure they maintain it on a regular basis.
For instance, a sweep is far more water efficient than a scrub.
By having your space cleaned on a regular basis, you’ll likely prevent certain waste items from becoming ingrained in your surface, negating the requirement for a scrub.
Monitor your water consumption regularly.
For instance, you can read your meters and record the figures, using a program like Microsoft excel or Smartsheet.
Doing this consistently will help you track your consumption and your reductions, and help to identify where much of your water use is going.
Energy Efficient Appliances and Fixtures
Install energy efficient appliances and fixtures in your tea room and kitchen.
Modern dishwashers and boiling water dispensers save more water than older models. Certain taps and filters can also aid in reducing water consumption.
In a large business, this may seem like a small measure, but it all helps.
Educate Your Staff
Educating your staff on the benefits of conserving water is one of the most important steps in the water saving process.
For instance, you could set up a water conservation team in your business. This team can keep track of water use, and help to implement water saving measures.
Without your staff’s participation and understanding, it’s likely your water saving plans won’t be as effective as they can be.
