The September issue of Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring Peter Sheldon''s "More. Better. Faster." article.
Sheldon states that whether you are a building service contractor (BSC) or managing an in-house housekeeping operation, the greatest challenge you face is to provide consistent, quality cleaning results in the shortest amount of time possible.
He notes that most BSCs or in-house operations do not have research and development departments so you have to do the research and testing work yourself.
Sheldon adds that while standards continue to be developed, the increased need for objective measurability is truly the catalyst that is changing our industry.
According to Sheldon, what a savvy BSC or in-house manager knows today is that there are tools and systems available that really do amazing things in shorter times than the antiquated systems our industry has been using for the past 100 years.
Peter Sheldon is vice president of operations for Coverall Cleaning Concepts. Sheldon played an integral role in developing many of the processes that make the company''s dedicated Healthcare Cleaning System unique to Coverall. In 2007, Sheldon was named a Certified Building Services Executive by the Building Services Contractors International (BSCAI). Sheldon is among an elite group of building service professionals to qualify for the CBSE designation.
