The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is an economic relief package spurred by the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19. In the simplest of terms, the CARES Act provides funding for education and government entities to spend on COVID-related activities.
Each industry has its jargon, the industry-focused terminology that peppers conversations and serves as shorthand. The facility management (FM) industry is no exception. Here are some of the FM industry’s cleaning terms—some you likely know and, perhaps, some that will be new to you:
Antimicrobial soap – Cleaning detergent with antiseptic properties.
Bio-enzymatic – Cleaning products that use non-pathogenic “good” bacteria to digest wastes, soils, stains and bad odors.
Your cleaning brand has the power to impact your image, productivity, morale and loyalty. It’s more than just wiping and sanitizing. It’s about protecting relationships. Take a look inside the minds of everyone your cleaning products affect. You, your customers, cleaning staff and employees.
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).
