Quality of Janitorial Services in Schools
Your peace of mind and ability to measure our janitorial success depends on timely and accurate communication regarding the status of your buildings. Our unique Facility Information System gives customers a complete solution for on-line reporting and data management, giving you a single source to manage all your facility data.
From a mobile device, the Contract Manager rates the maintenance level of the facility every month, or more frequently if necessary. This can be performed soleyly by Enviro-Clean’s team, or in partnership with your designated representative. As soon as it’s available, the data is downloaded to an internet portal which can be viewed by both our management team and by you, the client.
Wireless communication allows you to generate work orders online, which are immediately received by our Project Managers via their handheld devices. This allows an immediate response from our end, as well as letting you conveniently track our progress online.
This electronic correspondence is permanently stored and organized for future reference. All maintenance requests and concerns will be accurately recorded, and can be accessed at any time, so that our service information is always at your fingertips.
Our Contract Manager will meet monthly with each principal or decision maker to discuss and rate the previous month’s service levels. The reports generated during these monthly meetings are the basis for our continual improvement program. No matter how well we are performing, we strive to identify areas where improvement is possible – this our Enviro-Clean promise.
School Janitorial Training
Front-line staff members working in schools and educational facilities are the face of Enviro-Clean, so it is crucial that they receive proper training. Each of our janitorial team members must know not only how to clean properly, but also how to interact in a school environment. They must understand Enviro-Clean’s values, as well as those of our clients. Rigorous training for those assigned to schools and education buildings include:
Each new employee must attend a two-hour orientation prior to beginning work. This session is used to cover the following topics: Enviro-Clean’s history, dedication to customers, explanation of the Mission Statement, explanation of timekeeping procedures, policy for reporting absences, scheduling time-off and referral bonus program.
Each new employee will be accompanied by a trainer for a minimum of five days. Based on the assignment, training will cover the following topics in detail:
Trash and recycling
Daily restroom cleaning
Special event setup/cleanup
Spot cleaning for windows
Carpet vacuuming and spot removal
Job prep and cleanup
Café & break area cleaning
Vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping
Ceiling and wall washing
Before the training is over, each new employee will be trained and certified to consistently complete these tasks according to our highest quality standards. Our school janitorial staff training does not end after initial orientation and on-site training. Employees receive a minimum 10 hours of on-going training yearly.
School Janitorial Staff Screening
It is of utmost importance that all staff members assigned to maintain school buildings and educational facilities be thoroughly screened. All Enviro-Clean staff members assigned to schools, as well as substitute school cleaners, undergo the following screening process:
1. Initial Screening
The screening process starts with the receptionist screening out applicants who obviously will not fit in well with the school environment. Some traits that might eliminate an applicant for consideration for a school assignment are poor communication skills, failure to graduate from high school or earn a GED, offensive tattoos, evasiveness, or signs of aggressiveness. We seek employees with whom staff and students will be comfortable interacting.
2. Reference Checking
Each applicant’s work history is confirmed by contacting past employers to check the accuracy of dates of employment, lapses in employment or any indication that the applicant left under adverse circumstances.
Once passing the reference check stage, the candidate is interviewed. The interview goes far beyond asking simple questions one might expect when applying for a custodial position. Our HR recruiters are seasoned professionals, and are able to identify those best fit for our team using stiff criteria.
4. Social Security Check
The name and social security number of each candidate are validated through the Social Security Administration. This ensures that the candidate is who he/she says they are, and it eliminates the chance that a person without proper documentation would allowed access to your facilities.
5. Drug Screening
All candidates considered for an educational assignment must pass a five panel drug screen prior to being allowed into any school facility.
6. State Police Background Check
Each candidate must have no prior convictions of a crime against person or property, a drug conviction, or a felony conviction. The State Police background check gives an immediate record of any Michigan conviction.
7. FBI & State Police Fingerprint Check
All staff members must be fingerprinted and given a clean conviction history by the State Police and FBI, based on fingerprint records. This is a final check to assure that the applicant has no conviction history.

We have been maintaining public school facilities since 1996, and we presently provide custodial services for 40 Michigan school districts throughout lower Michigan. A complete list of educational customers and reference contact info may be provided upon your request.
