Daily Office Cleaning: Is It Necessary?

Maybe it is, if you have expectations above and beyond that of all sensibility.  Last week I visited a ‘Class A’ office building to chat with the Building Manager.  Of course my priority is a little different than his, but I have learned that the meeting of expectations for a group of people can end with […]

Cleaning Windows Part 2

The best high-rise window system I have ever had my hands on, is Unger’s Hydropower system.  If you have to clean windows over 10 feet up, you must see this system.  We have had 100% success with this system. Better yet the process is quick, the clean-up is easy, and the results are off the […]

Cleaning Windows Part 1

No not the software… Yes, people actually clean windows once in a while. Do you? It has gotten so much easier to clean windows than it used to be. The reason? Better chemistry and less of it and…. microfiber. Despite what they tell you at home parties, you do need to use a bit of […]

Floor WAX! A Thing of the Past?

You are probably already retired if you call it floor wax anyways but…just the same. I need to correct a misnomer: Floors are no longer waxed! The janitor at a hall in Niagara Falls asked me for two buckets of floor-shine “you know…the WAX”. I knew right away. Wax belongs in two places: candles and […]

Safety, Health and Cleaning Supplies

This chemical is caustic says a client, as I review the Safety Data patch on the WHMIS 2015 ready label. Knowing full well that bathroom cleaners are very rarely alkaline, I asked her what the issue was. She said to me that she had inhaled fumes from the shower cleaner and couldn’t breathe properly for […]

Personal Protective Equipment- Wear it!

How much of a fan are you of PPE? Do you wear gloves when you work? Do you wear glasses or goggles when you clean? Masks? My question goes a bit deeper than a simple “do you” question… Why? I need to know your rationale for why you don’t like safety equipment. For years we’ve […]

The Triangle that Builds the Circle of Trust

You’ve done it! You found the best deal going on a 75-inch LCD TV. At the local electronics store you found a Wazeemajob brand TV for $750.00. It’s a 4K TV with great image reproduction and refresh rates to beat half of the TVs in the market. Better yet it’s selling for almost half of […]

Another Recommendation in Reduction Part 2

Reduction creates redundancy for my company. Why would I work so hard to get the message across? If I don’t someone else will. The beloved Singlefold towel. Loved by everyone but those who pay for them I guess. Do you remember when you were young going to the washroom to wash your hands (if you […]

Quality and Happy Hands

Have you ever washed your hands and said “Ouch! That soap dried my skin out and now I have to deal with the discomfort of dry skin”? I was at a friend’s house recently and as I left his washroom after washing my hands I noticed that they felt like sandpaper. So I asked him […]

Another Recommendation for Reduction

We’ve all heard the term before, hard and soft costs. Does it fit into our regular spectrum every day? Not too visibly I guess. Back in 1982 I first met Andy Vince from Molynke tissue. He was showing us the center pull towel and extolling its virtues. At the time I saw it and said […]

Our Value

I think back to when I started as a sales representative. Oh wait heard that one before….true you have, but the rest to follow you haven’t. Bathroom cleaners were like dynamite. Degreasers used obnoxious solvents, then along came Citrusolve. Citrusolve was without a doubt the greatest innovation in cleaning that I saw until about 1994. […]
