To kickoff the program, one of our trained specialists will perform a comprehensive review of your site. They will tour each area of your facility, from the restroom to the kitchen, to identify high touch points and areas where current practices can be improved.

Chemical safety is another important consideration in training. For example, chemicals should never be mixed as they can create dangerous vapors. Ensuring the proper dilution ratio is also a key safety factor when working with chemicals. 

Our team can recommend the right tools to assist with all your safety needs to help maintain a safe environment for both staff and customers. We can also help establish cleaning protocols that incorporate safe cleaning practices.  

Maintaining clean facilities is an essential factor in retaining customers. For example, customers who experience dirty restrooms are likely to believe that the other parts of your facility are also unclean. They will be unlikely to return to your facility and may even leave negative reviews.  

Clean facilities can generate more business. Indeed, 60% of Americans say they are more likely to spend more at a business that maintains clean restrooms. By ensuring that your facility is properly cleaned and disinfected, you can build customer confidence in your business.  

Our team can help identify any potential problem areas as well as recommend the appropriate cleaning protocols to help you build customer confidence.  

When facilities are properly cleaned and disinfected, it prevents germs from spreading. This will help keep your staff healthy meaning less sick days and more time spent doing their jobs.  

Our team can recommend the appropriate chemicals and cleaning protocols to ensure proper disinfection.  

It’s important to ensure that staff are using their time in the most efficient ways. If your staff aren’t using the right tools or following the right protocols, they may end up needing to do a job twice to ensure proper completion.  

Our team can recommend the appropriate tools to get the job done right the first time, as well as establish cleaning protocols to increase your efficiency.  

Using the right tools and following cleaning protocols can also help you control costs. Installing a dilution control system, for example, ensures that product is not wasted by preventing under-dilution.  

Our team can help you determine where waste may exist within your current routine and recommend new products and tools to prevent waste, helping you keep your costs under control.
