Would Christopher Columbus Excel at Managing Custodial Services?
Current cleaning practices can prevent job excellence and sink your budget.
When most everyone accepted the theory that the world was flat or maybe round like a dinner plate, Christopher Columbus was committed to finding a better approach to doing his job.
Columbus was positive that he could amass data that was more accurate than what the people of his day were accepting as factual. So much so, that he was willing to risk his life to prove that facts needed to be upgraded.
How does Columbus tie into facility upkeep? For years, facility managers have listened to sales pitches or hearsay about the benefits of using the same type of custodial chemicals. No matter how much they use the products, problems seem to continue or get worse.
For example, sales pitches that suggest spray deodorants or disinfectant applications are needed to eliminate odors. Or, that a floor finish must be scrubbed and refinished often in order to maintain its shine with clean baseboards. Or, that the only way to prevent burnish dust is to buy a very expensive vacuum-equipped burnishing machine.
Today, if Columbus was a Custodial Services Manager, he would argue that there has to be a better way of dealing with performance problems and out-of-control costs. He would refute sales pitches and product performance claims that never seem to work out. Criticism and the risk of a few failures would not stop Columbus in his quest for better results and reduced costs.
Now, lets focus on your facility. If, in the last 5 years, you have not been able to cut custodial chemical costs by at least 50% and as much as doubled staff productivity, you need to find out about the Total Quality Housekeeping® System that is being enjoyed by Gabriel customers.
Dont be afraid to be as stubborn as Columbus when it comes to finding a better way of caring for your facility. For over 40 years, Gabriel has been stubborn about building environmentally-safe, high-performance products supported by staff training programs that allow customers to excel far beyond their wildest dreams.
