Before, During and After
Thursday, February 7th, 2019
One of the points I like to drive home with our employees before, during and after our interviews is the value we can provide by taking care of our customer’s building, not just the cleaning. I’ve always felt that companies hire us to clean their buildings but more than that. They are entrusting us with one of their biggest assets. And so under our care, we report and address these issues as quickly as they happen like the one below. (more…)
Happy New Year!
Thursday, January 24th, 2019
The new year (day one in fact!) found us driving to Houston. Over the Summer an opportunity came up for us to expand our service area to coverage in the Houston market. Things fell into place and I’m happy to report we are now offering janitorial services to buildings 50,000 square feet and larger in Houston. (more…)
Retail Floor stripping – What to expect
Thursday, December 13th, 2018
The floor will be machine scrubbed with floor stripper to remove the old finish on the floors. This is the part where they are also cleaned.
Stripping and waxing requires 5-6 hours for 2,000sq ft floor or smaller. It is important that floors be off limits while floor finish is being applied.
Once our floor tech is finished, the floor is hard enough to walk on but any store equipment, racks should not be rolled or dragged on the floor or the floor finish will come up. Please remember floor finish takes 24 hours to properly cure.
The floors under the isles that were moved may still have a darker shade based on what was on the floors under the isles such as grease, grime, buildup, floor finish. They will be clean but not look new.
Vinyl Composite Tile
Monday, May 7th, 2018
Vinyl Composite Tile or commonly referred to as VCT is predominantly in dental offices, breakrooms, daycares, production areas and hallways. The frequency we recommend these floors be serviced will depend on your foot traffic. Obviously the higher the foot traffic, the more often we recommend the floors be serviced to maintain their sheen. (more…)
What I learned at Our Company Party Pt. 2
Sunday, December 3rd, 2017
Secondly, I learned that everyone should have a go-to karaoke song they feel comfortable singing and are fairly good at. At the request of everyone to have me stand up and sing, there was no way I was going up there without someone singing with me. (more…)
What I learned at Our Company Party

In this video we give you insight into our floor process. Specifically our application of the floor finish. Dan (our handsome ops director) is seen here applying the finish. We credit him for the steps he has taken to design a smooth professional process. (more…)
Things that make us Smile
Tuesday, April 10th, 2012
Hard to believe this was after the scrubbing phase. Wax had not been put down yet. This was at a paint studio and was our crew in for a treat. Our crew started scrubbing and were surprised to find out that even though the floor had not been maintained in a few years the paint was coming off fairly easily. This is what makes us smile.

Our company often gets the privilege of working with new businesses on the verge of opening their doors for the first time. Sometimes I am contacted by the owner directly and sometimes the general contractor or super intendent contacts me. In either case the walk thru for a final clean is always the same; I go over what we do and how we do it. (more…)
