Giving Janitors The Credit and Appreciation They Deserve

Thank You, Janitors!

Behind every frontline worker is a janitor. Behind every essential industry is an essential janitorial staff. Janitors are an indispensable cog in the wheel that has kept our society going through challenging circumstances, most recently, a global pandemic.

The pandemic has spotlighted the need to clean and disinfect private and commercial spaces to ensure public health, yet somehow, the light never shines on the people who perform these tasks.

It’s time we started singing the praises of these unsung heroes.

Janitors are First Responders

As the saying goes, “No Guts, No Glory”. Yet, janitorial workers across the globe have been quietly cleaning up the guts but getting none of the glory.

Whenever we hear a story about an industry successfully returning to work, janitors were first on the scene to make it possible.

We know firsthand how essential janitors are, and we are committed to creating a workplace that reflects our appreciation, like fair wages and a comprehensive insurance package.

When it was time to open up schools, the janitorial staff stepped up and made it safe to do so. When it was time to return to the office, there they were, cleaning and disinfecting. When the hospitals were overrun, and doctors, nurses, and hospital staff were working beyond capacity, janitors worked tirelessly beside them. When teachers, government workers, grocery store clerks, public transit employees, etc., return to work to provide essential services to the public, a janitorial staff ensures that each environment remains sanitary and spotless for employees and patrons alike.

And when it was time for Frontier Airlines to return to work after being exposed to Ebola in 2014, the KGFS janitors were the ones to answer the call. Our pathogen mitigation and elimination expertise quickly got the Denver headquarters and vessels safe for workers, crew, and passengers to resume work and travel.

KGFS Commitment to Our Team

We know how essential janitors are to the fabric of society. It is a huge responsibility, but janitors get very little credit for their part in public health and safety, whether during a pandemic or day-to-day life.

Because actions speak louder than words, we are committed to creating a working environment where work-life balance is a priority, where our janitors and building cleaners feel valued and appreciated.

All entry-level janitors, porters, and building cleaners are offered an above-average starting wage and a basic insurance package which includes health, vision, dental, and life. There is even an option to add pet insurance.

That said, words also matter. Janitors are everywhere, working in plain sight day and night. Take a few seconds to say thank you.

If you manage a big workspace, you know exactly how important it is to maintain hygiene levels and ensure that all of the features are in good condition at all times. In the current pandemic situation, these aspects have become even more crucial. 

Effective Janitorial Services for Big Working Spaces

Maintaining cleanliness on a property and ensuring that all of the spaces, features, and surfaces are properly disinfected and sanitized is vital if you want your employees to be comfortable and confident about working in an office setting again.

Maintenance Tips

It is important to keep a healthy environment for your staff and visitors.

While there are many janitorial services companies, you must find one that will provide a wide range of cleaning, sanitizing, and commercial building disinfection services. Here is a look at the different services that should be covered as part of the solutions:

  • Day and Night Janitorial Services- Your business reputation depends on various things, and the cleanliness of the premises is one of them. Dust and cobwebs in corners, stained floors and carpets, and smudgy or contaminated surfaces are something that your employees, staff members, and customers will notice. The only way to get ahead of all these issues is to hire an operator like KG Facility Solutions that provides 24/7 janitorial services.
  • Using health cleaning and monitoring protocols, KG Facility Solutions will create cleaning and sanitizing action plans based on your property’s specific requirements and schedules. Since we work round-the-clock, we can come in at various times during the day, after office hours, or at night to clean the spaces. This way your employees have well sanitized, well-maintained working areas during the day, increasing confidence in your organization.
  • Commercial Building COVID19 Disinfection Services- With the pandemic threat still present in our current lives and with future health and safety of working spaces in mind, it is necessary to take some additional measures to ensure that all of the areas on your property are sanitized correctly for your employees well-being.

A company that offers janitorial services should also provide a specialized disinfection service. This is never a one-off task and can include recurring cleaning, targeting high touch areas, and disinfection through electrostatic spraying. KG Facility Solutions offers not only this, but a wide array of additional services to create a clean and healthy workplace environment.
