White Paper on Coronavirus and Cleaning
The White Paper is designed to help facility managers, as well as janitorial contractors, better understand how professional cleaning will change going forward, all due to the coronavirus.
Written by company founder and CEO Rick Vanderkoy, “one of the points I tried to make is that ‘looks clean’ and ‘good enough’ clean will not suffice in the post-coronavirus world. Managers will demand cleaning that stops the spread of infection.”
The C-Suite in the Post-Coronavirus Era
He also stresses that C-suite executives, who typically had minimal involvement in building operations, including building maintenance, will now be very involved in how well their facilities are cleaned and maintained.
“Top executives are now responsible for their staff’s health and welfare, continued business operations, brand reputation, and the bottom line,” he writes in the White Paper. “Whereas effective building maintenance has played a relatively minor role in C-suite responsibilities in the past, it now plays a commanding position.”
Vanderkoy also thinks that in a post-coronavirus era, what he calls “priced-based” cleaning will be a thing of the past, replaced with “quality-based” cleaning.
Years ago, according to Vanderkoy, many facility managers believed cleaning was a commodity, meaning there was not a lot of difference between one cleaning contractor and another. However, managers have slowly been moving away from this belief, but now, it is pretty much dead and gone because of the virus.
“Today, they view quality cleaning as an investment. It pays dividends by protecting the health of building users and by keeping businesses and facilities functioning.”
