So what can be done to cut costs and yet maintain a clean and professional appearance at your facility? Here’s the first of five tips we’d like to share based on our experience of over 33 years in the janitorial business.

If each employee is responsible for their own desktop and furnishings in their “space”, more time can be allotted for tasks that are best left to the pros.
