Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon

43080992 sThis past Sunday, April 28, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon Run to Remember was held. Nearly 24,000 runners participated.

The next Race Day will be April 26, 2020.

This past race day took an entire year to plan and bring about: with a corps of vlunteers, staff and vendors.

I remember all too clearly that day or the Murrah Building Bombing. My heart-felt sympathy goes out to the responders, survivors, and to those who lost friends and loved ones. I deeply thank all of those who helped put on this special memorial marathon!

We at Facility Care Janitorial want to help you make that important, good impression on your employees and customers.

When is Experienced Janitorial Service Critical?

vacuum2

When do you consider it important to have an experienced, long-lasting janitorial service provide your company with cleaning services?

What we've found over the years, is that while things SEEM to be simple and easy, there are ALWAYS snags and UNUSUAL cleaning challenges. Since we are experienced, with decades of janitorial service experience, we KNOW what to look for and what to do ahead of time.

For example: on muddy, rainy days - there are certain areas of a business' office that will need special janitorial care. Special janitorial service for muddy days includes:

  • Where ever staff put their feet - under desks, at the back door, and so on
  • In bathrooms
  • Entryways
  • In public areas

Your company may have even more specialized janitorial service needs. Tell us or call us -- and we'll help!

Vinyl Tile Scuffs.

We have a client who is having to watch his cash flow. Usually we buff their floors weekly to remove scuffs but they cannot afford this frequency. I reminded the new crew about an old scuff removel system. They knew nothing about it. 

Placing a new tennis ball on the end of a mop stick and rubbing it on the scuffs works well and there is no charge. Good for a short term fix.

Folded towel dispenser.

Many of our older buildings have paper towel dispensers and the owners do not want an upgrade to roll towel dispensers. The older dispensers were designed of a C-fold style towel vs a multi-fold towel type. A simple insert can be installed very easily into the base of the dispenser, making it available for multi-fold style. Multi-fold towels are usually cheaper and more available than the c-fold type.

Towel Dispenser Problem

In one of our valued client's properties, they have a bit of a challenge with all of their towel dispensers. Now, at first thought, this doesn't seem very important - until you need a fresh, clean towel!

So, here's the problem:
This dispenser is really a nifty, new model dispenser but requires more battery power. The towel dispenser is capable of holding a partial and a full roll. However, there are questions about the operation of the dispenser by the client. With one roll, the dispenser is always running out of towels. This annoys the people needing a towel if it's empty. With two rolls, it uses a bit more batteries.

Our Solution:
We liason with our people at the company to help them find a workable solution for the towel dispenser and their needs. Always keeping in mind the value of each person we talk with. We presented a few solutions for them to review. Once they make their decision, they'll tell us and we'll implement that.

Too Hassled to Get Ready

Presenting Problem - The Client's Pain:
Recently, a bank officer called us. They are extremely busy with an expansion building project and are unable to manage the current janitorial service's requirements. They need a janitorial service to take over ALL the janitorial needs that they have. This means, that the company they are looking for must manage all the supplies, chemicals, equipment, scheduled supervision of cleaning crew performance, and be highly trustworthy as they will have their own key. This also means the company must be bonded and fully insured.

Our Solution -  We Take The Pressure Off:
We spoke with the bank officer, learned their schedule and specific needs. We take care of all supplies, chemicals, and equipment so they do not even need to think about them. Additionally, since quality control is so important for a bank, we check up often on the cleaning crew and their performance. We are bonded, carry Workers Comp insurance, and fully insured. They know they can trust us and our staff with a copy of the key to their bank!

The Result:
A happy, relieved, and less-stressed bank officer. With glowing praise and testimonials.
