Supercharge Your Cleaning Operation
Online Education & Coaching Programs
Too many facilities are poorly cleaned! Too many leaders of facilities do not have evidence-based data that proves how well, or not, their facility is being cleaned.
Why? Because even though there are good intentions, the leaders of the cleaning operation lack a clear understanding of how the best-in-class cleaning operations work. This then negatively impacts the Facility Management leadership (potential revenue loss, potential risk exposure, etc.), limits growth opportunity for the cleaning operation, or worse yet, might lead to their replacement.
In this time of heightened awareness on the importance of clean and cleaning, only the better performing cleaning operations – BSC or in-house service providers – will be able to sustain and grow their operations. Those unable to find, develop and retain enough quality people; those with high employee or customer turnover rates; those in a rut of only winning customers because they are the lowest price; those that need clarity to develop and implement a sustainable improvement plan; or those that are not delivering best results and value as compared to others, risk their reputation, their ability to grow, and their cleaning operations’ long-term sustainability. FM leaders must ensure their cleaning operation is at top of their game and be prepared to make necessary changes to deliver the value expected by today's and tomorrow’s stakeholders.

Course Cost Structure with OptionsCourse 1 - Supercharge Your Cleaning Operations - Deliver a Higher Level of Consistently Clean, Safe & Healthy Service at the Lowest Overall Cost:
The first 12 participants in the Full Course were surveyed, and here is how they responded:
JOEL CRADDOCK, C.P.T., C.A.P.,I.C.E.
President, Doc's Facilities Solutions, Inc
The most valuable to me were the HR Modules (5 & 6) – staffing. I especially liked the detailed listing of the required attributes, attitudes, skills, roles, etc. that we need to look for and hire to in order to best deliver results and value to our customers, and provide a low employee turnover rate. With such a high employee turnover rate, and with the difficulty of finding good people in our industry, and the cost of a high employee turnover rate, and the cost to recruit, conduct background checks and drug testing, to hire, onboard, educate, train, as well as uniform costs, etc., we cannot afford to make poor choices in hiring. Mikes well laid out plan, and the things we were not doing, we have now implemented and we expect BIG POSITIVE IMPROVEMENTS.
A very close second for me was all the great information on management and leadership (modules 7 & 8), the differences and how they were changing, and the need to be able to meet people where they want to be met. The information on leadership was great.
We as the cleaning industry need to develop better leaders/leadership which will in turn result in our industry getting the respect it should be getting.
Associate Director of Facilities, Christopher Newport University, Former VP for Education, Virginia APPA
The course provided great value in all the areas I wanted, and did resolve my issues in taking it. In addition, I enjoyed the course layout, and the follow up Q&A/Masterminds’ sessions each week.
National Liason Chairman for the Utah School Custodial Managers Association
This is a very high-quality product that can help the needs placed on leadership personnel in the custodial field. I liked that this Course emphasizes Employee Engagement and I liked that it places that responsibility firmly on leadership.
This Course is truly something that needs to be taught everywhere and needs to become the ‘mainstream norm’ for the custodial industry. With the material covered in the Full Course, you can change people’s lives for the good.
NYSSFA Mid-State Chapter, State Director & Former Vice President, Director of Facilities at Cazenovia CSD
Manager, Custodial Services, Good Shepherd Home (LTC)
In particular, the Modules/Lessons on Staffing (5 & 6) gave me sufficient information to solve my staffing problems, and to better attract, recruit and hire new front-line cleaners.
The presentation of the Modules/Lessons over the weeks gave you time to really think hard about the material and compare your operation to ‘’best-in-class” and then to develop a focused improvement plan to drive changes that will produce significant benefits.
Overall I would recommend to any cleaning industry leader and facility manager to contact Mike Sawchuk for their education and consulting needs.
Director of Housekeeping Operations - Miami Dolphins, Hard Rock Stadium & Formula 1 Crypto.com | Miami Grand Prix
The Course was full circle and covered many topics and ideas that would more than satisfy all – relatively new BSCs, experienced BSCs, as well as experienced cleaning operations managers from education (higher and K-12), LTC & hospitals, as well as venues.
I know this Course will help those that want to improve their operational excellence in order to drive better results in their levels of clean, healthy and safe they provide.
Team Leader, Patient Support Services at Trillium Health Partners (major hospital)
The Full Course provided great detail and insights on the various topics as described in the Modules, and it provided many great ideas/suggestions. There were also experiences shared from others attending the Course during our Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions that provided value as well.
The Course made me review how our department functions and think of new ways we can do things to improve in order to drive greater consistency in providing high levels of clean & healthy to our patients, medical staff, and visitors.
If you are in charge of a cleaning department in the hospital, school, long term care sectors, you need this course!
MAL J. SMITH
Founder & CEO at Victory Lab Micro-Clean
The Full Course, including the Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions were invaluable to me as I build my business, provide the greatest value to my customers, and to be as successful as possible.
The Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions allowed me to discuss and better learn topics meaningful to me. The comradery that developed I loved, and I feel blessed to experience.
President & CEO at Elite Facility Systems
MICHAEL McCARTHY, CIWFM
FM Support & Solutions, Delivering Excellence in Environmental & Sustainable Projects
I especially enjoyed the Coaching Calls/Masterminds’ Sessions. They were important as they highlighted how others saw things and also how others work in different areas of the world and in different types of facilities.
In addition, the information from the Modules/Lessons was huge and gave massive support to existing processes as well as a toolbox to enhance and improve.
I recommend this Full Course to all that want to know for sure where their cleaning operation stands as compared to best-in-class.
Director of Facilities, North Syracuse Central School District
I liked Mike’s approach as he is real and didn’t shy away from any issues or problems, we brought up for him to assist us with. I enjoyed his delivery and no-nonsense approach.
It was well worth my time, and that was the ‘’value barometer’’ for me.
