I have seen a lot of crazy things in my cleaning career, but this one is new to me. I have never been a fan of the robot vacuum. First of all, they are really more gimmicks than anything else. But the fact that they just meander around, with no consistency just drives me nuts. […]

I saw this soap dispenser at a rec center a while back. I wondered if they even realized how much money it took to make it that dirty? They could easily reduce cleaning costs by improving their results. If something isn’t working, or at least working well, money is being wasted. If continued, cost will […]
Take a look through any college or trade school course schedule and it is doubtful you will find a single course on cleaning. While there has been talk in the industry for years about developing education programs for cleaning professionals, and there are many out there, few programs have gotten any traction when it comes […]
Winter Floor Care Winter weather brings with it additional areas of concern for cleaning professionals. The cold and snow add steps to many cleaning routines and present different challenges to maintaining the cleanliness of facilities. One of the most common is trying to remove salt residue from floors.
