Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: What is the best way to develop a system for a cleaning company that will allow the company to run perfectly when the owner is not there?

You will need superior operational systems to ensure attendance (including backup teams), continuing education and training (to ensure standards compliance), rigid quality control (including self-inspections), unsurpassed customer service (solving all types of issues and complaints), material and labor logistics, regular supervision plus a good dose of creativity and motivation.
