Creating an Effective Grout Cleaning Strategy
SANITATION CANADA

Guy Kawasaki, a business guru  who got his start working with Apple Inc., suggests that business owners seeking new clients should be willing to give something away for free to win new business. This can apply to cleaning contractors now that spring has arrived. The spring and summer months are traditionally when contract cleaners begin marketing their services. They can often win a new customer over by offering a “freebie” at the start of service.

Start Fresh: A Guide to Spring Cleaning
SANITATION CANADA

A few calendar pages into 2014, and it’s already time to fling open the windows and spruce up for spring and summer. A deep clean and examination does more than just shoo away the cobwebs. Pests coming out of winter hibernation are house hunting, and any facility that offers food, water and shelter is at risk. Keep pest management in mind when you clean this spring to help protect your facility against infestations. 

Bugs - we breathe in more from tap water than the toilet bowl
EUROPEAN CLEANING JOURNAL

Floors, carpets and even tap water create more airborne bacteria in our homes than the toilet. That's according to a new report from scientists in the US. The team from the University of California took their equipment to 29 homes in the San Francisco area and mapped out exactly where airborne microbes were coming from. Floors and carpets came out top with 19.5 per cent (probably because we're always kicking up dust from them), while 16.5 per cent of bugs could be traced back to outside air that had drifted in or been carried in by people.

Using Mats Keeps Facilities Clean And Healthy
CLEANLINK

Typically when we think of floor mats, we think of mats installed at building entries. However, interior mats play a key role in keeping facilities clean and healthy.

Interior mats are installed inside a facility in such areas as:
• Main walkways
• Before elevators, escalators, and stairs
• At food service areas
• At transition areas, where a hard surface floor meets a carpeted floor

Cleaning And Disinfecting Tips For Hotels
CLEANLINK

Winter travel and weather-related travel delays often mean that people spend more time indoors in confined spaces, like hotels and on public transportation, which can enable the spread of illness-causing germs between travelers, especially during cold and flu season. This increase in the spread of germs means that hotel staff must be prepared to step in with a foolproof cleaning regimen to prevent guests and staff members from becoming ill.

Six Important Questions To Ask About Aqueous Ozone Cleaning
CLEANLINK

Different manufacturers have introduced aqueous ozone cleaning systems. However, many cleaning professionals are not quite sure what aqueous ozone cleaning is all about. To get to the heart of things, Matt Montage, distribution sales manager for CleanCore Technologies answers some of the most commonly asked questions about aqueous ozone.

TCHC setting up seminars for cleaners
TORONTO SUN

This is probably not what the Mayor’s Task Force meant when it said Toronto Community Housing Corporation needed to clean up its act. The Sun has learned TCHC is sending its cleaners and superintendents back to class to learn how to properly clean the housing authority’s buildings. Spokesman Lisa Murray said the training seminars — which consist of an in-class portion and a practical session — are being led by the management and CUPE 416 staff “with expertise in commercial cleaning.”

Add-on Services Can Add on Profit
ISSA

When commercial cleaning provider Mopheads was founded two years ago, the Arizona-based company’s list of services included several nontraditional options. Clients could contract customary commercial cleaning services, including dusting, sweeping and mopping—or opt for extra services, such as event cleanup, trash hauling, or electrical and plumbing services. “Today, clients are a much more sophisticated type of buyer,” the company’s CEO Will Scholz says. “They seek out firms they can use as one-stop shopping providers.”

Assessing Cleaning Performance
FACILITY EXECUTIVE

Lewis Carroll stated, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” While some people might say a good cleaning program, like a good life, is a journey not a destination, almost everyone agrees it is important to set practical goals. This article addresses setting cleaning performance goals in the context of business objectives through cleaning performance assessment, and tracking key performance indicators (KPIs) or metrics.
