Greetings from the Windy City! This week it is also the Clean City.
My blog posts over the next several days, from October 17-20th, will feature the ISSA INTERCLEAN Convention.
For FM and property managers, follow the next several posts to gather second-hand knowledge of what your cleaning contractor should bring to the table in terms of new, innovative supplies and equipment—best of all, you don’t have to pay the hefty price involved with travel, hotels and show expenses. Pretty good deal if you ask me!
I will be looking for “what’s hot and what’s not” so that FM’s and property managers can benchmark against their current cleaning provider.
I hope you can join me.
p.s. Follow me on the links above, next to my picture.
