WAXIE Brings Innovative Electrostatic Spraying System to Able Services San Francisco

March 26, 2019

Bill Sivori, Project Manager at Able Services San Francisco, does things differently than most. First, his contract cleaning business is devoted to a single client. But, that one account happens to be the largest landowner in San Francisco, with a four-building complex covering four square blocks, a total of 3.2 million square feet of Class A offices, 1.2 million in retail space, as well as the tallest building west of the Mississippi located a few blocks away. Sivori’s office is based in those very same buildings and once or twice a month he walks all 141 floors to build tenant relationships and to be proactive rather than reactive when there's a problem.

“I've been here eight years and have a great staff with an inordinate amount of management for four buildings, including an operations manager, full admin, two supervisors and eight foremen,” said Sivori. “We have close to 400 different tenants, most of which are high end lawyers, investment bankers, insurance and high-tech companies. Tenants trust when we say we're going to do something, it gets done.”

How to Implement a Day Cleaning Program at Your Facility

By Chris Myer  |  February 7, 2019

If you’ve ever proposed a day cleaning program at your facility, you’ve likely run into at least one of the following arguments: 

  1. It’s too disruptive to building occupants
  2. Tenants don’t want custodial staff around in front of clients
  3. It’s harder to clean with people in the building

To be sure, these aren’t invalid arguments, but none of them are insurmountable if you’re strategic about how you develop and implement a day cleaning program at your facility. But before we get into the nuts and bolts of how to make a day cleaning program work, let’s review the benefits of doing so.

The High Flow Fluid Extraction (HFFE) Cleaning Process

By Keith Schneringer  |  January 24, 2019

The Cleaning Science Behind High Flow Fluid Extraction (HFFE)

“Clean” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “free from dirt or pollution” or “free from contamination or disease,” but it is worth noting that there is no universally accepted definition of “clean” which has been adopted by everyone in the cleaning industry.

According to the Cleaning Industry Research Institute website, Dr. Michael Berry (Chairman of the Science Advisory Council for CIRI and author of the book Protecting the Built Environment: Cleaning for Health) has proposed the following definition of clean: “an environmental condition free from unwanted matter” – and has further defined “matter” as “anything of substance.” While this definition has not been universally accepted by the cleaning industry, it is a good place to start.
