How to Reduce Risk and Chemical Consumption in Critical Cleaning 

When it comes to operations, improvements to safety often come with an increase to costs. In fact, cleaning procedures for cleanrooms and critical environments are typically chosen for a balance between the two—meeting the necessary regulatory, industry and GMP standards at the lowest cost of labor and materials.

However, this relationship is based on old cleaning tools and techniques. With two- and three-bucket mopping systems and their correlating mop and wipe substrates, risk reduction requires a greater investment. More stringent and therefore time-consuming SOPs, more frequent cleaning chemical changes, and the use of mops and wipes recommended for higher level environments.

The Risks of Conventional Mopping Systems

Traditional two- and three-bucket mopping systems have high touch points throughout the process that could potentially introduce both contamination and employee health risks.

-Exposed cleaning chemicals

-Attaching clean mops

-Rinsing mops

-Wringing mops

-Mopping surfaces

-Removing dirty mops

-Disposing solutions

-Cleaning equipment 


A newly designed cleaning system and enhanced substrates change the relationship between safety and cost—greatly reducing risk and lowering cost through process and consumables efficiency.

Chemical Usage of Conventional Mopping Systems

Based on best practice recommendations, you have to change 2-3 gallons of chemical every 1,000 square feet for an ISO 7 or 8 environment. For an ISO 7 or 8 facility, the chemical change is recommended to be more often–2-3 gallons every 600 square feet. The chart below depicts the daily chemical consumption for a 5,000 square feet facility.


Saturix Mopping System Lowers Mopping Process Risk Profile by 80% & Chemical Usage by 90%1

This innovative system completely eliminates high risk touch points and chemical waste associated with conventional mop systems.


99.9% Particle Removal— additional insurance to safeguard any environment

While Saturix cleaning system provides a dynamic reduction to risk and chemical consumption, Saturix microfiber mops and wipes remove 99.9% of particles down to .1 micron in size.2 This provides an additional layer of protection and efficiency, removing a wide range of particles.
