Why you NEED Clean Ceilings

Sanitation and cleanliness is a top priority for most people in all aspects of their lives. You take a shower every day and do laundry often, but when it comes to restaurants, hospitals, and other manufacturing facilities, you NEED to have clean ceiling tiles. Ceiling tiles are often ignored in daily important operations of your industry, but this ignorance can lead to big problems. Find out below why you NEED to have clean ceilings.

  • It’s the Law
    First a foremost, if you don’t follow the guidelines by the health code you have the risk of failing your next health inspection, which can lead to fines and, potentially, closures. No business wants the risk of having to shut their doors because a health inspector discovers dirty ceilings in your building.

  • Air Quality
    On top of that, having a dirty ceiling can lead to particles getting in the air causing poor air quality which can then turn into individuals getting illnesses. This airborne sickness can affect anyone who is inside your business. If someone gets so sick and they trace it back to your facility as the cause, this can lead to a damaged reputation and lost profits.

  • Prevents Product Contamination
    Lots of materials such as dust, grease, dirt, and other particles can accumulate in rafters and ceilings of industrial units. Vibrations due to heavy machinery cause the roof to shake and release the dust and dirt built up there contaminating the product below. Having a clean ceiling makes sure no product contamination will happen even if the ceiling vibrates.

  • Aesthetic Reasons
    Having a dirty ceiling obviously just doesn't look good. Dust, dirt, and grease collected on the surface can make your entire building look unattractive. Individuals can see it as a huge turn-off causing your employees to not enjoy working for you or driving customers away.  

Keeping your ceilings clean keeps you on good terms with the health inspector, ensures your air quality is top notch, prevents any contaminants, and makes your whole building look aesthetically pleasing.

Our products are safe, recyclable, eliminate the use of harsh chemicals for cleaning, and save you time and money by reducing labor and maintenance costs over the long term.

I agreed to test the NOVA SmartPeel Ceiling Tile application on one tile and compare it to another tile next to it. Even attaching the SmartPeel Ceiling Tile made a big difference in appearance, as the application is bright, white, and shiny so that tile looked cleaner already. Two months later, without any cleaning of either tile, it was clear that the SmartPeel Ceiling Tile did not have as much grease and dust as the tile with no application. It was clear to me after the test to attach the SmartPeel Ceiling Tile to all my food service, bakery and dish room tiles.

We were pleased to be one of the pilot restaurants that assisted in the final testing of the SmartPeel Ceiling Tile. Your professional team came in and installed the product, routinely followed up on a timely basis, and listened closely to our feedback. At first, I was a bit skeptical as to how the tile would hold up. However, I have been more than pleased with the results. Not only have we reduced the amount of labor and chemicals needed to clean our ceiling tile, the tiles have lasted longer than we expected. The product was easy to install, and we immediately got the added benefit of a brighter kitchen environment.

It's no longer a chore to get our staff to clean the tiles, in fact, most of them thought it was quite fun and it took little effort to get the job done. And as you said, the ceiling looked brand new after the peel. The fact that chemicals no longer have to be used and we are saving money in the process makes the NOVA SmartPeel Ceiling Tiles one of the best new tools we have at our hospital.

After being installed nearly 8 months ago, the SmartPeel Ceiling Tiles still look terrific with the first layer. I am a big supporter of this product as it is obvious to me it saves money and time in cleaning and replacement tiles, plus, improves the look of our service area ceiling above the ovens. This product improves the look of our stores to our customers, and I am convinced they also save franchisees money in the long run.
