Academic Excellence Meets Cleaning Excellence

By Allen Rathey

Academic Excellence Meets Cleaning Excellence

A West Coast public research university consisting of several colleges within a multi-campus state system, focuses on academic rigor to help students meet 21st Century demands for excellence in knowledge, skills, and workplace performance.

Its focus on high standards extends to the cleanliness of its restrooms. The facilities use a spray-and-vac system that applies fresh cleaning solution to surfaces at 500 psi, then vacuums away the soil in liquid suspension.

It's a complete and thorough process that makes campus restrooms shine. Per consultant Perry Shimanoff of MC2 − who has taught nearly 20,000 custodians nationally, at more than 800 school districts − 'The Kaivac spray-and-vac method is a source of pride to their custodial team who no longer have to squat down or assume awkward positions to effectively disinfect and deodorize restrooms. The equipment has enhanced their restroom cleaning experience. They have several dozen machines as these excel along with the company's chemicals.'
