In Greek mythology, Hercules was the mortal man, fathered by Zeus, who sought to become a God. In order to prove himself worthy, he had to complete a variety of labors.
Out of all the labors, there’s one that seldom is talked about (in comparison to him stealing apples, and slaying beasts with claws as sharp as swords), the time Hercules cleaned the Augeas stables in one day.
As the myth goes, the labor was meant to be an impossible task and a humiliating one. The stables hadn’t been cleaned in over thirty years and housed over 1,000 cattle, which meant there was a large amount of dung to be cleaned and slaved over.
In order to clean it, Hercules rerouted the Alpheus and Peneus rivers to wash out the stables. The rivers flowed through the stables and wiped all the grime and dung away and through the streets. The stable was clean, but in cleaning it, Hercules only succeeded in moving the filth from one area to another.
We all know cleaners like that; the one that starts the project and then finds the quickest way to make the job look done, even if it’s not. Don’t let those Hercules cleaners get away with it. In the end, quick short-cuts only ends up creating more mess for someone else, or you to clean up later.
And if you are working in a medical facility, around or with children, sanitation is essential key to a happier and healthier day for everyone.
Like Hercules, some can claim that they really do want to be better cleaners but they just don’t have the tools needed to deliver that promise.
Don’t let this become an excuse at your place of work, or home, either. If you have a tough mess to clean or live in an environment that needs to be cleaned thoroughly, find a machine that can work as hard as you. Invest in a quality cleaner that can get the job done right the first time. Don’t settle for fickle machines. Invest in one that will work as hard as you will to clean an area, such as the Mercury H-20E Hercules Heavy-Duty Floor Cleaner.
