Keeping your building clean and sanitary involves hiring the right professional janitorial service, custodians or cleaning company that knows how to efficiently and effectively remove dirt, debris and bacteria from all surfaces. Some applications require more than just surface scrubbing. This may not be enough in order to ensure your building is sanitary and safe. Excessive humidity, which can lead to mold and or mildew, while odors and fumes can also negatively affect your building and contribute to sick building syndrome (SBS). In order to alleviate these some of these problems, the janitorial company or staff that you hire must also have the right types of fans, blowers, ventilation, humidity and odor control equipment, as well as portable heaters.
Benefits of Fans for Janitorial Use
Janitors and custodians, whether part of a professional cleaning company or part of a company’s staff, need to have a variety of fans at their disposal so they can quickly dry damp or wet areas, air out rooms that may have experienced a water or chemical spill, scrub the air in rooms or areas that may be contaminated with fumes or other odors, dehumidify rooms that may have experienced a water leak or excessive humidity, and or add mechanically heated air to exceptionally cold rooms, especially bathrooms and kitchens that may be prone to experiencing frozen pipes, mold and mildew issues.

Industrial Fans Direct is proud to be able to offer a large selection of commercial and industrial grade fans so that your janitorial services company can keep all the buildings you clean sanitary and safe, while exceeding your client’s expectations. Here at Industrial Fans Direct, we sell pedestal mount air circulators, floor fans, electric radiant and gas fueled forced air heaters, dehumidifiers, portable drum and barrel fans, utility fans, air movers and air scrubbers for aspects of janitorial services.
Our portable air movers are great for all sizes of industrial and commercial buildings, and they are portable enough to be moved between locations so that you will always have the industrial fan equipment you need to quickly dry your client’s floors and air out stuffy or fume-contaminated rooms. Our air movers can circulate up to 5,000 cubic feet of air per minute, which is perfect for drying wet floors after mopping or quickly drying the remnants of a spill.
Air scrubbers are perfect for cleaning and scrubbing the air in individual rooms in order to reduce particulate matter, bacteria, viruses and mold spores. These portable units have HEPA filters that are capable of removing extremely small particles from the air in order to remove foul odors and improve indoor air quality. Our air scrubbers have the ability to clean up to 800 cubic feet of air per minute which is perfect for medium to large rooms, like bathrooms, break rooms, offices and kitchens.
Janitorial closets, basements, kitchens, bathrooms and break rooms can quickly develop excessive levels of moisture due to running water, chronically wet surfaces and cooking operations. If the humidity is not reduced quickly, it can lead to the development of mold and mildew and make the area uncomfortably hot. Our dehumidifiers are designed to quickly remove excess moisture from indoor air, which can make the room feel cooler and prevent the development of mold and mildew. We have dehumidifiers with CFMs up to 400 and water capacities up to 225 pints.
Drum and Barrel Cooling Fans
Drum and barrel cooling fans are perfect for drying wet floors, ventilating large rooms and corridors and rapidly drying wet floors. They can even help ventilate stock rooms and help improve the comfort on loading docks. Our drum and barrel cooling fans are available with CFMs up to 40,000.
Cold weather and cold, unheated rooms can be a major problem in the winter. If your building has plumbing pipes in unheated rooms, they could freeze and burst if the temperature drops below freezing. Portable electric space heaters can supply enough heat to unthaw frozen pipes and to keep pipes from freezing. Additionally, many custodian closets and offices are in unheated and minimally heated areas. Our electric space heaters and cabinet heaters can help keep offices and janitorial work areas warm and comfortable all winter long. Our electric and kerosene heaters have the ability to warm and move up to 800 cubic feet of air per minute.
Pedestal and Floor Air Circulators
Pedestal and floor air circulators are essential when it comes to keeping rooms well-ventilated while they are being cleaned. Many cleaning chemicals and floor waxes are recommended for use in well-ventilated areas. Unfortunately, if a room does not have any windows, ventilating the room can be difficult. Thankfully, our large selection of pedestal air circulators and floor air circulators can help keep rooms well ventilated while the professional janitorial company is cleaning, scrubbing and sterilizing the surfaces. Our pedestal air circulators have oscillating fans and the ability to move up to 15,000 CFMs. Our floor and desk air circulator fans have CFMs up to 7,500.
