Do You Know the Dwell Time?



Find out and change your cleaning success for good!

Posted On: Mar 20, '20

Have you heard about Dwell Times?

They're an important part of sanitation routines that are often overlooked. If you're the type of person that thinks you an wipe bleach over everything and call it good - this may comes as a shock!

Dwell times can range from 10 seconds to up to 10 minutes depending on the chemical and only count for the time that the chemical is wet. Wiping away a disinfectant or sanitizer too soon can render it ineffective, and leave you with a falsely cleaned surface.

Spray Nine has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Get effective killing power with a dwell time under a minute. (30-45 seconds). Get it in 946ml spray bottles or 3.8 Litre jugs.

General Purpose Bleach has a recommended dwell time of 10 minutes for high strength dilutions (1:10), is readily available, and a powerful disinfectant.

Looking for the same bleach killing power but more convenient portioning and handling control? Try Dustbane UniTab tablets. With the same dwell time and power as bleach but a longer shelf life and less corrosion.

Use with the
Dustbane Sprayer for full and efficient application power - without a cord to hold you back.

AMRE Supply can help keep your janitorial carts stocked with powerful cleaners and safety products.
Providing your team with the tools they need to keep your business clean and confident.

ProFlo Complete Toilet Kits



Everything You Need to Upgrade Your Toilet in One Box

Posted On: Feb 11, '20

With February bringing in ProFlo as it's Vendor Spotlight you can find what you need to renew your bathroom - especially your toilets.

ProFlo makes it easy to find the right fixture for your home with Complete Toilet Kits. They include the Tank, Bowl, Seat, Closet Bolts, and Wax Ring - so installation is all out of one box.

Choose between a Round Bowl, Elongated bowl or ADA Elongated bowl; each with High Efficiency Gravity Flush Technology.

You can even replace your toilet yourself with these 10 steps.

1. Start by turning off the water and flushing to remove as much water from the insides as you can. You may want to use LiquiLock Gel , The Trunk or a large sponge to ensure there is no extra water that could spill out onto your floor.
2. Disconnect the water supply and remove the old toilet (starting with the tank bolts, tank, then bowl bolts and bowl.) Plug drain with a rag in the meantime to prevent any sewer gases.
3. Clean off the flange and check it for damage. Replace if need be.
4. Turn the new Toilet Bowl upside down on flattened cardboard or towel to prevent damage then place the wax ring evenly around the bowl flange.
5. Carefully life the toilet bowl, using your legs not your back, and align it with the Flange bolts.
6. Apply even pressure on the bowl (sitting on it works) and rock it side to side and front to back. This will ensure the wax seal is firmly in place. The Toilet should be firm to the floor.
7. Install the washers, nuts, and caps over the flange bolts, making them snug but not over tight - this could damage the china.
8. Install the tank-to-bowl-gasket, tank bolts with washers, and place the tank on the bowl. Tighten the tank nuts and make sure they are level.
9. Connect the water supply to the ballcock, hand tightening it. It is highly recommended you do NOT use channel locks.
10. Turn on the water, flush and check for any leaks. You may need to adjust the ballcock to proper water line height.

Protecting Yourself and Others



N95 Masks, Hand Sanitizer, and Stopping the Spread

Posted On: Jan 31, '20

With the recent Coronavirus outbreak, countries all over the world are preparing to keep themselves and the people around them safe. To protect your home and business, there are several things you can do.

The virus spreads via air by coughing or sneezing, personal contact, or contact with an infected surface or object followed by contact to the mouth, nose, or eyes. With this in mind, Face Masks, avoiding the sick, and ensuring to disinfect hands & surfaces are paramount to avoid contracting the virus.

Face Mask:
N95 Rated Respirator Masks offer more protection than traditional disposable masks and are designed to prevent 95% of small particles from entering the nose and mouth - when fit properly to the face. These masks are not designed for children or those with facial hair. Always follow the instructions when using a Particulate Mask for the maximum benefit.
Please Note: AMRE Supply is now SOLD OUT of N95 Masks.

Avoiding Spread:
If symptoms appear, it's time to call in for a sick day. Staying home and getting better is the best way to lessen the spread of any sickness, but especially the highly contagious. Ensuring that you are covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing then immediately washing your hands. If you have employees that show up to work sick, be prepared to send them home to avoid spreading any viruses.

Keep Clean:
Washing your hands with warm water and soap is the best defense against germs. As useful as Hand Sanitizer is - it should only be relied on when soap and water is not available. If you must use hand sanitizer, be sure that it is formulated with at minimum 60% alcohol; anything below 60% is ineffective. See these options for 70% alcohol formulas for higher effectiveness. Keeping surfaces clean is another important aspect to preventing the spread of illnesses, especially if they are frequently used by a multitude of different people / customers.


At the end of the day whether it's the flu, cold, or coronavirus -protecting those around us and maintaining our health should always be a top priority.

Don't Get Slushed!



Find out how you can prevent Winter Slush from invading your business with Matting!

Posted On: Jan 23, '20

The slush is coming!

Don't let it turn your entry into a slip-n-slide - with the right floor mat you can control the dirt and slush that makes it's way into your business. With matting, up to 80% of dirt is trapped in a specified location, which makes for easier and quicker clean up. Not only does matting improve the look of your floors, but the longevity as well.

Depending on the amount of foot traffic in your building, there are different stages of matting and different sizes that would work best.

For example, in a heavy traffic area a Multi-Stage system would supply the best results for a high foot traffic area (like schools, malls, major retail locations).

Find our full selection of floor matting here!

Drive Safe, Arrive Safe



Winter driving doesn't end with the holidays! Stay safe until Spring.

Posted On: Dec 30, '19

Even with the end of Winter coming near, January and February are never predictable when it comes to weather and even with the melt comes the risk of added water to the roads! Here are some tips to keep your New Year safe.

- First and foremost is to NEVER drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Anything that hinders your reaction speed and attention has no place behind the wheel.
- Seatbelts are a must! When used correctly they save lives, remember to keep the lower belt snug over your hips and the shoulder belt across your chest.
- See and be seen. Clear all snow off your vehicle. This includes off the windshield, hood, roof, and back window. Remember to turn on your lights in the early mornings, in low visibility, and after sunset.
- Give yourself ample room to avoid a collision by staying back and paying close attention to the vehicles ahead of you. Particularly when roads are wet or covered in snow. This includes staying back at least a car length (or more), avoiding the use of cruise control, and avoiding passing when visibility is low.
- Learn your vehicle and how it reacts in a skid. Remember to stay calm, take your foot off the brake and ease off the gas. Look to where you want to go and shift to neutral (or push in the clutch). When you regain traction shift back to drive (or release the clutch) and accelerate gently to continue driving.
- Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle at all times. It should include an ice scraper/brush, first aid kit, flashlight, shovel, sand/kitty litter, traction mats, warning light/flares, booster cables, survival candle + matches, fire extinguisher, extra washer fluid, a reflective vest, and a survival blanket.

Shovel Snow Safely



Clear Snow the Safe Way With These Tips!

Posted On: Nov 12, '19

Did you know that Shovelling Snow is one of the most common causes for injury, or even death, during the Winter? The work raises blood pressure more than other forms of exercise, paired with cold air can cause arteries to constrict, which decreased blood flow. These combined make the perfect storm for heart attacks. Being out in the cold and moving heavy loads snow off frozen ground also leads to slipping hazards!

Here are some tips for shovelling safely:
• Shovel right away. Don’t wait for snow to pile up and get heavier, keep your driveway or sidewalks clear when the snow is still light if possible.
• Stretch and warm up before heading outside. Particularly your shoulders, back, and thighs.
• Over the age of 55? Don’t shovel alone OR in the morning (avoid it altogether if possible). The AM has been proven to be the most likely time for a heart attack to strike, and age puts you at a higher risk. Consider professional snow removal services, or investing in a Snow Blower.
• Avoid twisting and throwing the snow out of the way, instead push it around with an ergonomically shaped shovel. Like the Garant Poly Blade Snow Pusher. Have a snow blower? Stay safe by keeping away from hazards and protecting your hearing with Ear Muffs, like these from Silverline.
• Proper footwear is key to avoiding painful slips and falls. Wear boots with Winter level grip, or add a pair of Ice Cleats to turn any shoe into slip safe boots.
• Dress for the weather. Wearing Cold Weather Gloves and dressing warmly will allow you to take your time and not rush through the chore. Being comfortable and protecting yourself from the cold are essential to shovelling safely. Looking for some extra heat? Try a Milwaukee Heated Jacket, they’re battery powered with strategically placed heating zones to keep your core from feeling the chill.
• If you’re starting to feel tired or dizzy, take a break! Hydrate, warm up, and only return once you have your breath back. Shovel lighter and smaller loads of snow at a time, even if it will take longer.

With these simple tips in mind your necessary shovelling chores can be done comfortably and safely! Leaving you more time to enjoy the beauty of Winter instead of suffering from it.

Fire Safety Month - How to Test Your Alarms



Do your detectors pass the test?

Posted On: Oct 22, '19

When it comes to your smoke detectors, keeping them in good working condition is a necessity that’s often overlooked.
According to Fiprecan.ca, Smoke Alarms/Detectors should be tested Monthly and cleaned every 6 months.

How to Test your Alarm:
• Most alarms will come with a specific ‘ Test ‘ button. Follow the user manual for your particular alarm.
• Use an Alarm Tester such as The Smoke SABRE to produce synthetic smoke that will set off the alarm.
• Battery operated Alarms (excluding sealed battery alarms) should have their batteries changed every year, even if their Low Battery Alarm has not yet sounded.
• For Hardwired alarms, be sure to test them after a power outage or any electrical work to ensure their connection is still strong.

To clean your alarm simply open the cover and vacuum the interior, or dust carefully. Be aware that in some models the alarm may sound while doing so.

If you’re in the process of building or looking to add some alarms to your home or business, here are some tips for finding the best place for them:
• The best locations are ceiling mounted in or near the centre of a room, hall or stairway, and at the head of each stairway.
• They should be at least 2’ (60cm) away from any corner.
• Should never be recessed in walls or ceilings OR painted.
• Kept away from outside doors or windows as well as at least 2-3’(60-90cm) away from light fixtures.
• For Hardwired alarms, contact a qualified electrical contractor and never install the alarm in the electrical circuit - especially if connected to an on/off switch.

If your Smoke Detector/Alarm isn't passing the test, replacing it immediately is the best way to handle it. Check out our selection of Smoke Alarms - ranging from 10 Year Worry Free Batteries to Hardwired.

Fire Safety Month - Planning for Safety



Is your business prepared for a fire?

Posted On: Oct 15, '19

FLB291 - The Safety Media Fire Log Book is a nationally accepted log book with over 100 pages of forms to record your fire protection maintenance duties.

Emergency Lighting
Exit Lights
Emergency Power Systems
Fire Separation
Portable Fire Extinguishers

Service Equipment

Keep necessary information like Building info, extra keys, and a detailed Fire Escape Map in a AA65 - Fire Safety Plan Box. This gives Firefighters the information they need to accurately and quickly assess the situation.

Depending on your location and building, a Fire Lock Box can be a great aid for the Fire Department as well. Fires can happen at any time, whether you’re there to open the door or not, so keeping emergency spares in a lock box only the Fire Department can access your building quickly and with minimal damage (in the case of a false alarm.)

You can find more information on how to prepare a Fire Plan from Natural Resources Canada..

Portable Heaters and How to Make the Most of Them



Proper room, location, and set up is important when heating your home!

Posted On: Sep 24, '19

Nothing says cozy like a warm blanket, a cup of hot chocolate, and a heater warming the room. With memories of the Polar Vortex still fresh in many of our minds, the latter is going to be an important integration to your home.

Having a portable electric heater pointed directly at your feet may feel like the best way to go, but is that really making the most efficient use of it? With the right placement and attention paid, your little electric heater can go a long way in keeping your home at the perfect level of toasty.

• Control with Doors - You’ll feel the effects of a portable heater best when the heat can be confined and controlled. Putting it at the bottom of a staircase, for example, will only allow the heat to escape upwards instead of circulating around the room, whereas placing it in the corner of your home office will make your nights more comfortable. Even more so with the addition of a closed door or gentle ceiling fan (just remember to have it spin clockwise at a low speed to push the warm air down).

• Create a Buffer - You wouldn’t put an open flame right up against a wall or within reach of curtains, so it only makes sense to avoid doing the same with your electric heater. Keeping a foot or two away from walls, curtains, blankets, and other potentially flammable materials is the best way to ensure you have the best possible positioning while keeping your home safe.

• Out of Reach - Heaters can, as expected, become very hot when used for longer periods of time and with kids or pets in the house looking for warm they can become a burn hazard. Letting your kids know they aren’t to touch and keeping away from pets is your best bet to a safe and cozy environment.


• Remember; Less is More - As handy as they are, portable electric heaters can easily run up your electric bill if not monitored carefully. Choosing a heater with a timer or using an outlet timer can help control how long your heater stays on and ensure that you aren’t using more than you need. Efficiency is key!

Find the perfect heater for your home with AMRE's selection of heaters!
