What features does a good cleaning supplies website contain?
There are so many different topics when it comes to cleaning. The first question you have to ask yourself is cleaning what? We clean everything, as human beings we are taught from our early childhoods to keep every thing clean and put things away when we are done with them. The question then becomes why? Why do humans need everything to be neat and clean, and in order. I believe as a species, human beings need direction and routine to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If things are not clean and organized this can disrupt our daily routine. How does this come into play with what makes a good cleaning supplies website? Well first, before you can sell something to an individual it always helps to give them good information on what they are buying and how to use it. A majority of cleaning and janitorial supply websites just list products and hope that you will purchase their items. When I make a purchase I want to know what I’m getting, how to use it, and how does it compare to other products that are similar. Am I getting the best deal, and is what I am buying the right product for my situation. In the cleaning supplies industry there are a lot of chemicals that are sold to help us clean. Some cleaning chemicals are dangerous and others not so dangerous, it is a good idea to read cleaning chemical instructions from start to finish before using them.
When you as a cleaning supply website owner sells a product individual it is your responsibility to give the customer as much good information as possible, so that the product sold is not used inappropriately. Mixing certain cleaning chemicals can be dangerous if not life threatening and someone could end up hurt or even worse. A good cleaning supplies website should include and have posted MSDS literature on every chemical they sell. An MSDS page or sheet is an acronym for material safety data sheet. This literature states what ingredients go into a cleaning chemical and what to do if an emergency arises related to the chemical. Certain laws make it illegal for some businesses to use a chemical without having a MSDS cleaning sheet at the location but with the private use of a cleaning chemical this is not true. When using cleaning chemicals for your own private use it is a smart idea to have a cleaning MSDS on hand for your own safety and well being.
Another good trait of a successful cleaning and janitorial supplies website is to include cleaning forums and cleaning directories. Cleaning supply forums are a great opportunity for your customers to share ideas and let each other know which cleaning supplies work for certain situations. A good cleaning site webmaster will also give input on these forums and help answer perspective buyers questions. By offering a cleaning directory cleaning services and individuals who operate cleaning related businesses can promote their services which help them to sell more which in turn helps your website to sell more.
As the webmaster for many cleaning supplies websites for over 3 years I implore other janitorial sites to give good and accurate information to their clients. By providing cleaning safety information and knowledge about the products you sell is a cleaning supply site webmasters responsibility. Help make the world a cleaner and safer place and give your clients the one thing the internet is about – good and accurate information.
