Sustainability as a practice encompasses more than simply using ‘green’ cleaning products. Environmental consciousness is not just about purchasing decisions but affects the way we clean as a whole. An area of opportunity for environmentally preferable efforts is in the chemical usage and concentrate accuracy of dispensing systems.
There is a mutually beneficial harmony between increased chemical accuracy and overall sustainability, but many overlook the correlation. By putting into practice an accurate chemical control system, facility managers can also maximize product usage, budget, safety, and surface longevity.
An inaccurate chemical dispenser can have repercussions in more ways than subpar cleanliness by potentially causing budget pressure, labor issues, safety concerns, facility damage and compliance.
Another important result of accurate chemical use is the environmental advantage it can bring to your facility. The correct combination of chemical concentrate and water prevents excess depletion of expensive disinfectants and eliminates product waste. Additionally, an accurate mixture will dispense exactly the right amount of water, thus reducing water usage for the facility.
It’s clear the accuracy, or lack thereof, in your chemical concentrates can impact many parts of your facility management from budget, to labor expenditures and the building’s overall carbon footprint. To solve the pain points that come with inaccuracy, the 3M Chemical Management Systems portfolio offers the precision that will help you and your cleaning staff properly dilute chemical concentrates.

Achieving an accurate chemical mixture may seem like an inconsequential facet in the grand scheme of your facility upkeep or sustainability strategy, but inaccuracies in chemical dispensing can take a toll on both the bottom line, facility safety, compliance and the environment.
