Customized Solutions for your Cleaning Operations

Behind the Broom - The Final Sweep

Throughout our book, Behind the Broom, we have tried to share our combined years of experience with our fellow members of the cleaning industry. Running a professional cleaning operation has become much more complex than it once was and requires an in-depth knowledge of current best practices.

Cleaning Management Software: Your Silent Partner

CMS (Cleaning Management Software) will improve efficiency in every aspect of your operation, because all the relevant information is in one place and connected through the magic of an inter-relational database. Think about a room full of file cabinets, holding reams of paper, containing years’ worth of information recorded or tabulated by hand. Now imagine it needing to be pulled and coordinated to create reports, perform studies, or simply determine what one individual’s job entails.

Women in the Cleaning Industry

The following article is from Behind the Broom and is written by Judy Gillies, President and Founder of the Surge Group.

There is a growing trend occurring in the boardrooms of the cleaning industry that is incrementally changing the dynamics of how cleaning operations are managed. That growing trend relates to the number of women that hold executive positions in the corporate realm of today’s cleaning enterprises.

Sharing the Secrets: Effective Training

As members of the cleaning profession, we know it is not as easy as it looks. Like doctors and nurses, we are responsible for the health, image and overall care of the buildings we service. When you look at it that way, it is easy to see why training is so important. As with any other profession, it is imperative that workers understand the most efficient, effective and safe way to perform their jobs.
