Office Checklist - Water Conservation Category: 7. Encourage employees to use dry cleaning methods like sweeping floors
Use brooms, brushes, vacuums, squeegees, scrapers and other utensils to clean material before water is used. For example:
Sweep floors and pavement instead of hosing with water.
Vacuum or sweep dry material spills such as salt or dyes instead of using water.
Use squeegees to collect food processing residues from the floor before hosing with water.
Vacuum or sweep dust instead of hosing with water.
Dry sweeping methods conserve water and save water purchasing costs.
