Cleaning Buckets


Brand new to the forum, though not to the world of residential cleaning - I have a company that I've been running for the past 10 years with my wife.

I wanted to get some feedback on cleaning buckets. If you could make improvements to cleaning buckets, what would you like to see? I'm asking because I really feel that the cleaning buckets that exist are seriously terrible (at least for a cleaning service), and I'd like to see drastic improvements. Currently our crews use these two compartment buckets to haul around cleaning supplies, and frankly things can get a bit messy with this setup, with bottles and supplies flying around all over the place in the buckets. Personally, I would like to see buckets that have specific compartments/holders for spray bottles and other cleaning supplies (sponges, scrapers, brushes, etc.), and a specific compartment for clean towels and one for dirty towels. I think this would be so much better for getting everything organized.

Does anyone have any other feedback on this?

Yes, I've been saying that for years ... a caddie with a compartment for dirty towels!

The only reasons I bring a bucket are these: to carry cleaning products and washcloths and other supplies to different rooms. And at the end of the day, when I rinse those cloths, they go into a plastic bag that goes into the bucket to be carried back home. I would NEVER use a grubby old string or foam mop - all you are doing is spreading dirty water around! I see evidence of this all the time in my residential cleaning. Tile floors especially, those with slightly indented patterns. I call those brown stains "dirt lines" - because that is exactly what they are. If a Magic Eraser gets those brown lines up, they are leftovers from the previous house cleaner who did not do a good job. My system seems to please customers, as it shows I really do care that their floors are clean when I leave. I have seen this over and over and each time I find this, I know whoever last did the floors didnt give a darn or have any pride in their work.
