What is the perception created amongst your staff about the value of cleaning and its relative importance at your establishment or facility? This perception may be called the “Culture of Clean”. Like the political spectrum, the culture of clean within any facility ranges from proactive on one end to reactive on the other.

•  The purpose of cleaning is to preserve facility assets and maintain a clean appearance as well as the health of building occupants.

Where do you sit? 

Based upon today’s budget realities, while a proactive culture is desired while cleaning establishment, it can be difficult to achieve with limited staff. Chances are you may sit somewhere on the spectrum, but the push needs to be toward the proactive end of the spectrum. A proactive culture may seem more expensive, but it is far less expensive in the long run than a reactive one while using the best cleaning products.
