Management And Training
When it comes to smaller commercial facilities such as offices, building service contractors (BSCs) and facility managers (FMs) typically can estimate their cleaning needs, the amount of time it should take, how many workers will be needed, and with this information, an idea of how much the work will cost.
While training students with special needs for jobs in the cleaning industry took a little longer and required more effort, what they brought to the workplace made that time both productive and worthwhile.
Scheduling cleaning tasks and labor load at the right time for the building and its occupants results in cleaner buildings, optimized cleaning performance and healthier building occupants.
