Over the years, KBM has developed standards of excellence rooted in the belief that every organization has a unique set of needs and expectations that must be understood and met. We hire responsible individuals and train them carefully to develop the skills necessary to reach our standards. It takes more than knowledge and expertise to meet the needs of our clients. It takes a dedication to excellence and service – a commitment you will find within every KBM professional.
Making The Right Choice
When retaining a professional janitorial maintenance company, you must find one that can be trusted to produce the results you need. Choosing among the myriad of competing firms is not an easy process. A good janitorial maintenance professional must be able to create a maintenance program that matches your needs and minimizes costs and the disruption of your business. Knowing that your organization has a unique culture which must be understood before it can be properly serviced is essential.
Look for someone who takes the time to ask the right questions and listens carefully, gathering the information necessary to develop effective, tailor-made solutions. Spend time to evaluate credentials and references. Ask tough questions to make sure you will be comfortable working closely together.
Your maintenance advisor should understand the dimensions of facilities maintenance and be absolute enough to recognize the appropriate materials, supplies and equipment necessary to perform the varied tasks, just as you understand the dynamics of the business which you operate. Project management skills are also crucial. Your maintenance advisor must make the process as effortless for you as possible, allowing you to spend your valuable time conducting your business. Ultimately, your maintenance advisor should be available at all times to assist you with any additional services you may require.
