- No Up Front Investment- We provide several different items (mats, mops, air fresheners, and Purell dispensers) on a rental basis, which means that you do not have to purchases these times, nor worry about keeping an inventory.  
- Continuous clean item supply- you will always have a continuous, un-interrupted supply of clean items on a regular basis.
- Professional washing, drying, and sanitizing- your soiled items are picked up at your location, and exchanged with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  This means you have more time to focus on your business.

It's Spring Cleaning Time!

Is Spring Fever Really A "Thing"?

 

Spring Fever is not a medical term, and not a disease or malfunction of the body, but it is recognized as something that affects many that live in northern climates. The additional sunlight and warmer temperatures have a positive affect on mood and energy level.

People feel lighter, can tend to eat less, and have a desire to unburden themselves, often recognized as wanting to "Spring Clean".  If you’re a business owner, you might be feeling the same way- might this be time to order those mats for your business to keep things clean, and let Swan Dust Control pick up the dirty mats and deliver clean ones?  Having a clean work environment not only impresses customers, but it can also impact the productivity of your employees.  Mess and clutter can cause feelings of stress, whereas a clean environment can improve an employee’s ability to focus and get the job done!  It’s a win-win situation for everyone!  For more information about our products and services, call Swan and receive a free quote.

 

It's Spring, so enjoy, get outdoors, take up activities like walking and golf, and enjoy Canada's wonderful parks.  It's been a long winter and Spring is finally here!

Keep Customers Safe From Slips And Falls

How Does Swan Help Keep Customers Injury-Free?

 

 

During the long winter months when it’s wet and slippery outside, it’s crucial for businesses to ensure that they have proper safety precautions in place to prevent customers from slipping and injuring themselves.  According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), most general industry incidents involve slips and falls.  Sadly, an estimated 20-30% of people who experience a slip or fall will suffer moderate to severe injuries.

 

Let’s not wait until an accident happens before we take the proper steps to create a safe environment for both customers and employees.  Swan has several options to help keep your floors clean and your customers injury-free.  We provide rental mats, which reduce the dirt, mud and moisture tracked into the building.  We also provide scraper mats which provide a slip-resistant surface, and work wonders for high-risk and wet areas. 

 

Finally, we have treated mops which help keep floors looking shiny and professional. 

 

Prevent potential safety issues and liability- call Swan today!

Keep Your Business Smelling Fresh And Clean

Why Is Having A Fresh Smell In the Air Important?  

 

While it is crucial to make a great first impression in regards to the appearance of the business, it is also vital to take note of the smell in the air.  This is something that may attract or detract a customer from returning to a business.  In fact, according to the American Marketing Association, people stay as much as 44% longer in businesses that smell good.  They also go on to explain that scents have the ability to evoke an emotional response, and when used correctly, can increase feelings of happiness.  Having a fresh smell in the air helps the customer feel and believe that they are in a clean environment.

 

Swan provides automatic air fresheners for any room that might need some freshening up.  We have several fragrances to choose from.  Plus, we provide the unit and replenish the fragrance.

Make A Great First Impression

Keep Your Business Looking Professional

 

When a customer walks into a business, they instantly make a first impression based on what they see.  For instance, if they look around and see messy floors with salt stains and dirt, they may assume that the business lacks professionalism.  The person may wonder, ‘If they show so little respect for their workspace, then will they treat customers in the same manner?’ 

 

Cleanliness also impacts the health and safety of those who come into contact with the building.  Obviously, a customer will not want to return for a second visit if they feel their health and well-being are at risk. 

 

At Swan, we strive to help businesses create a safe and professional looking workspace where both staff and customers know they do not have to worry about their well-being.  We want to increase the likelihood of customers returning for a second visit because they were greatly impressed with the service and the cleanliness of the business. 

 

Give Swan a call and let us help you make a great first impression with your customers.  We provide both rental mats and mops, which work wonders at removing dirt, dust, and even stains!

Why Are Mats So Important During The Winter Months?

Keep Your Customers Safe From Slips and Falls This Winter

 

There are countless reasons as to why it is crucial for businesses to have proper matting on their floors during the long winter months.  This type of weather tends to make floors much more wet and slippery, which can potentially lead to unnecessary slips and falls from both customers and employees.  This is obviously, something that should be avoided at all costs as the safety of your customers should be the top priority. 

 

Floor mats can help in the following ways:

- Prevent slips and falls, and reduce the risk of liability
- Reduce daily cleaning costs by substantially minimizing tracked-in soil.  Research shows that overhead costs associated with cleaning greatly increases during the winter months. 
- Extend the lifespan of flooring surfaces
- Help maintain a great impression with your customers. 

- With Swan, your soiled mats are picked up at your location for each service cycle, and then exchanged with clean ones.  The soiled items are brought back to our plant for professional cleaning.  It’s as easy as that. 

 

Keep your customers safe this winter.  Call Swan today for a free quote.

Why are Swan's Rental Mats Efficient?

What Materials Make Swan's Rental Mats Effective?  

 

The first step to ensuring your customers are safe from slips and falls is to place matting in entrances and heavy-traffic areas.  However, not just any mat will do the job right.  For instance, you don’t want to purchase mats that curl in the corners and cause customers to trip.   Our rental mats are specially manufactured with premium high quality materials to provide an outstanding performance at your facility.  Here are some of these materials:

  • Anti-skid nitrile rubber backing customized for hard floor surfaces or carpeted floors
  • Rubber backing helps prevent curling and cracking, and allows the mat to lay completely flat
  • Rubber borders facilitate transition and cart traffic
  • Cut pile yarn allows dirt to penetrate and hide in between fibers until the next service from Swan
  • Super absorbent 100% nylon cut pile carpet surface resists packing and crushing

Save time and money by keeping dirt at the door

​Entry Mats capture dirt

 

Studies have proven that it can take up to $500 to remove 1 pound of dirt that has been tracked into your business. 

If you have an entry mat, and your customers take at least three steps on a mat, it will remove 90% of the dirt that would otherwise have been tracked into your shop. The entry mat is your first line of defence against this dirt.

Further studies have shown that 80% of the dirt that enters a business comes through the door. So place mats at all entrances, and save yourself both time and money, while preserving your floors and maintain a cleaner environment indoors.
