3 steps to a cleaner and leaner facility

3 steps to a cleaner and leaner facility

Veritiv Facility Solutions | June 25, 2019

Improving results requires seeing cleaning as a holistic function of a facility. Some companies treat cleaning either as a simple housekeeping task or a necessary evil. This mentality often leads to neglecting processes, taking shortcuts and looking for the cheapest and easiest solution. The potential negative effects and expensive consequences far outpace any dollars saved upfront, and as a result, the whole facility suffers. Applying the same principles to cleaning as one would to any other critical facility function is the most effective way to experience positive results.

Have you Leaned your Clean?

Have you Leaned your Clean?

Veritiv Corporation | October 6, 2017

We’ve all heard of LEAN, Six Sigma and process excellence, and how they decrease costs, improve productivity, and develop more effective people and companies. But what if you could get results like these simply by applying LEAN to your cleaning? We tend to think of cleaning as housekeeping. Are all the mops off the floor? Are all the supplies shoved into the storage closets? Are there dirty spots on the carpet? In fact, the way property managers and manufacturers look at cleaning right now is almost retro, more focused on clean (supplies and tools) than LEAN (methods).
