“The future is won by those creating the future…and not the ones trying to maintain the status quo.”
This week we will be talking to the Lead or Head Custodians at K-12 schools. These messages are from Michael Ward and his book, “Who Swings Your Mop”.
Observe and Report vs. Mandate and Dictate
What that means is; If you notice something not being done correctly, you must document and report it to your supervisor.
Do not threaten that YOU are going to write someone up! Your goal is to work with your supervisor to help your staff deal with issues.
Learn how to mop floors, clean walls and wipe surfaces with clean, fresh pads and wipers. The pretreat system is another tool in you closet to protect human health.Watch more

Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach
My Housekeeping team here at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach recently had the opportunity to receive some marble floor cleaning & polishing training through Dave Thompson's Academy of Cleaning with the coordinated effort of our vendor John Pezey with Gem Supply.
I wanted to take a moment to personally thank Dave for the professionalism displayed along with the thorough knowledge of floor care training given to my Housekeeping Manager, (2) Floor Technicians, and myself. The documents reviewed in addition to on hands training was exactly what anyone would receive when looking for the certification needed for this precious marble stone upkeep.
We took photos of before and after along with a video of the steps involved to have on hand for any future references. We appreciate the detailed preparation before the training by John of explaining the equipment & tools required to get the job done correctly.
My sincere thank you to a job well done where I would recommend this training class to others looking to be able to do the work in house.
