Delivering custom programs tailored to your unique industry
Each industry presents its own unique challenges. Pike Systems’ staff members are knowledgeable in each of these industries and can assist you in facing these challenges head-on
If you can measure it, you can manage it! The only way to assure you get the level of cleaning you need, at a cost you can afford, is if you know what each piece of the cleaning pie costs the department. Once you have this information, you can tweak your program in a way that takes into account risk first and then the overall cost to clean. The Pike Systems’ program allows you to make real-time decisions based on fact rather than assumption.
By enlisting our assistance in workloading your custodial department, you will be able to answer any staff, chemical, or equipment questions thrown your way.
Here is a snapshot of the data provided through the custodial workloading process.
- The time required to complete a task or clean an area
- The budget impacts of adding or subtracting space, personnel, etc.
- A preview of the effects of a wage increase on overall cleaning budgets
- The impact of how adjusting task frequency will effect costs
- Charted productivity gains using different equipment options including before and after assessments to support your purchasing decisions
Every facility is a little different
The size, complexity, and use patterns all impact the cleaning requirements. For this reason, it’s important to identify the goals and objectives of your custodial program upfront. The five levels of cleanliness ranging from unkempt neglect to orderly spotlessness present a good starting point for your organization. In addition, the cleanliness levels dictate the frequency of daily, periodic, and restorative cleaning processes all of which impact the time needed to clean and, then, of course, the cleaning budget.
From there, you’ll be able to generate a list of cleaning activities that are required and assign frequencies to each which is what we refer to as a “Scope of Work.” The required list of custodial activities can be impacted by the equipment and tools available as well as your cleaning processes. Based on what tools and equipment are available, a time will be assigned to each specific task. The custodial staff should be held to specific custodial productivity standards. A Scope of Work is designed to:
- To insure the desired level of cleaning
- To maintain continuity of cleaning with your budget
- To simply staff training
- To allows for easy movement of employees from one area to another
- To get everyone on the same page!
- To provide a framework for quality control
- To provide a clear understanding and definition of SUCCESS
