The work we do in our industry is not easy, but it is important. Our employees carry the weight of this work, and we respect, admire, and appreciate them for all that they do. For this reason, we want to let them shine! We are going to feature employee profiles, so that current and prospective clients can put a real face on the people behind the curtains, ensuring their offices are clean. We don’t get to see our clients very often, so this is a chance for all of you to get to know all of us!


We want to share our story with you, and our story starts with our people. Each of our employees is on their own journey and we want to do whatever we can to support and encourage them.


On that note, everyone meet April Salazar!
