Environmental health, infection control, cleaning quality and green cleaning have become high priorities for many Cleveland-area businesses and property managers—in many cases as cleaning budgets and staff have been cut 5-15% in recent years.

The Cleveland division of xpedx is offering area business and facility owners, managers and employees a no-cost seminar to give them new information on reducing cleaning costs, cleaning best practices and environmentally responsible cleaning.  xpedx, with operations in Valley View, is one the nation’s largest distributors of cleaning supplies and equipment.

The event, “How to Reduce Cleaning Costs and Meet Environmental Goals,” takes place Wednesday, May 12, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Cleveland South, 6001 Rockside Road, Independence, OH.  Continental breakfast and lunch are included at no charge.

Dave Frank, a veteran cleaning industry consultant and president of the American Institute for Cleaning Sciences, leads the seminar.  He will discuss topics including cleaning system design, cost management, meeting sustainability goals on a budget, and communicating about cleaning costs and effectiveness with your boss or board.  Building service contractors and sustainability directors are also invited to the seminar.

Representatives from some of the nation’s best known cleaning supplies and equipment companies will attend including Diversey, Kimberly-Clark, Rubbermaid, Tennant Nobles, GOJO Industries and Berry Plastics.

Lunch will be paired with a mini trade show will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m.  The latest advances in cleaning products, technologies and practices will be discussed and demonstrated.
