CINCINNATI — xpedx®, one of the largest cleaning supplies and equipment distributors in the U.S., is hosting half-day, no-cost seminars across the U.S. titled, “How to Reduce Cleaning Costs and Meet Environmental Goals.”
The seminars are presented to individuals responsible for management, maintenance and budgeting at offices, manufacturing centers, health care, retail, colleges/universities and other facilities. They are designed to help them find the right cleaning tools and processes needed to make building maintenance cost effective and healthier, while also meeting environmental goals.
“Every facility manager and owner wants clean, healthy and safe buildings,” said Michael Feenan, vice president of marketing at xpedx. “But at the same time, many cleaning budgets are getting cut.

He will provide information on workload and staffing, cleaning system design, capital expenditures and mechanization, management tools and environmentally sustainable cleaning.
“Facility managers can walk away from these seminars with clear, actionable strategies that not only save money but also improve the cleanliness, health and safety of their buildings,” said Frank.
