A clean campus not only adds to the appeal of your institution and fosters pride, but is also essential to keep your community healthy and safe. It’s why we go above and beyond traditional cleaning and janitorial services, combining science and art to maintain cleaner, safer, and environmentally friendly living spaces.

Take, for example, our award-winning Blue Cleaning Program, an environmentally friendly approach that electrically activates tap water to safely clean or sanitize surfaces, floors, and carpets. It eliminates the need for expensive products, harmful chemicals, and unnecessary packaging across campuses, resulting in a healthier, environmentally friendly campus environment. It also happens to be the safest form of cleaning for custodians, promoting employee well-being and improving morale.

Our commitment to excellent custodial service has been recognized by ISSA – the worldwide cleaning industry association – as the first company serving higher education, to earn the coveted Cleaning Industry Management Standards (CIMS) Certification and CIMS-Green Building Certification, both with honors. Our program complies with LEED-EB, LEED-OM, as well as AASHE STARS program certifications.

Campus appearance plays an important role in the applicant decision-making process. Students want to be in a living and learning environment that fosters inspiration and pride. We want that, too.

Our staff brings the highest level of technical skill and a caring customer service approach, delivering campuses that are impeccable maintained and support student satisfaction.

Our grounds management programs create well-manicured green spaces and outdoor settings, invoke a sense of community and enhance the appeal and image of campuses to support recruitment and retention efforts.


Our approach is based on a passion to be holistic stewards of the environment. Our industry-leading Green Thread™ platform ensures that your campus will have the most practical, advanced, and environmentally sensitive solutions available. We also engage students to create a campus community that has the same passion about the environment as we do.
