Janitorial and Custodial Service Companies Must Change Or They Will No Longer Be In Business
A mop and bucket, sponges, toilet plungers…that’s what you think of when you think of a janitorial or custodial company. It will still take many years for janitorial and custodial services to go away. And after that if you find a company that “cleans” buildings, it won’t be called a “janitorial” or “custodial” service company anymore.
There might be janitorial companies that try to sell you on the “traditional approach.” They want to show you a sparkling bathroom, shiny tile hallways, and beautifully clean carpet. but by then, you will know that your buildings must have sanitizing services and healthy buildings, not just buildings that look clean that are unhealthy.
You should inhale and notice a fresh scent. And there is nothing wrong with any of that at all unless the fresh scent is coming from a masking deodorizer. Your building should appear and feel clean when your custodian finishes their work.
That makes a good impression on you and your staff. And when you have customers or parents visit, depending on the type of organization you run, they get a safe, healthy feeling too. That’s important.
Technology is Changing the Way the Profession Works
You probably don’t think of janitorial or custodial companies as “innovative”. In fact, some people probably think fairly negative things when they think of these companies. But don’t worry, you’re not offending us. That’s what a lot of people think. It’s the reality we live in. But we are out to change that perception.
What you should know is that Non-Core Business Solutions (NCBS) has gone beyond janitorial and custodial service and has evolved as a “building sanitizing environmental services” company. We do things differently—the way things should be done—to get greater results. Our sanitizing process will make schools buildings healthier for students, teachers and administration.
And not only just for schools. We can sanitize your building so you, your staff, customers and visitors are healthier. That leads to a number of benefits for you and your organization:
- Healthier, happier, and more productive students and employees
- Lower insurance premiums and payments
- Fewer employee absences
- Less student absences or health problems in schools
- Happier parents who think better of your school
- Administrators that look good because they were able to lower illness and cut costs using Non-Core Business Solutions.
When you partner with NCBS, you really score an unexpectedly big win for your organization. But, as you know, only a small percentage of companies say they can do anything like this today, much less actually do it. Most just want you to sign a contract and “clean” your building of the visible dust and dirt. But NCBS goes beyond your expectations of what “clean” is.
Examples of Tools and Methods that Keep Your Buildings Healthier and Safer
These are just a couple of small ways your organization would be served by an innovative company like NCBS whose mission is to make you building healthier:
- Use of an ATP meter is essential. An ATP meter measures the micro organic particles on surfaces. This tells you how saturated the surface is with live and dead germs. The larger the count, the less healthy the surface.
- A particle counter measures the number of particles in the air within your buildings.
- A sampler captures a sample of your school’s air which we then send to a lab to get tested for VOCs. This process allows you to learn how safe or dangerous your air is.
- Other instruments are used that give us readings of metrics needed to keep your building healthier.
When you choose Non-Core Business Solutions (NCBS) we will completely restructure the entire reason for cleaning. We go from just keeping your building “looking good, shiny, new, and smelling fresh, to having a building with less undesirable particles like dust, dirt, germs, bacteria, viruses, allergens, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)”
NCBS also redefines the total process of how to accomplish this with a completely different set of protocols, processes, and methodologies. The result is a healthier building for you which also uses a lot less labor. The end result is that you will spend less and receive a tremendously greater value.
So in 2016 and beyond, you should not be looking for a “janitorial” or “custodial” service company. You’ll want to find an “interior building environmental sanitizing services” company like Non-Core Business Solutions instead.
