|Custodial services include all duties that are performed by custodians to maintain cleanliness at a particular premise. Also referred to as janitors in some settings, custodians vacuum and mop floors, empty trash containers, clean windows, sanitize bathroom fixtures and carry out any other tasks related to cleaning the inside or the outside of a particular building.
Abraxas Sustainable FM Services seeks to move beyond basic custodial cleaning services to green cleaning. The overall goal in establishing “Green Cleaning” procedures is to protect the health and safety of a building’s occupants and workers, while at the same time applying resources effectively and efficiently to reduce or eliminate environmental impact from chemicals and equipment used to maintain the facilities.
|Related to custodial services is recycling. Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to “conventional” waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions (compared to plastic production, for example). Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution (from incineration), and water pollution (from landfilling).|
|Abraxas Sustainable FM Services has strategic partnerships with dedicated custodial service providers to provide green cleaning and recycling services on an as-needed basis to support client-specific requirements. The custodial and recycling scope of work will be provided by the client and Abraxas will work with its strategic partner to deliver the desired scope of services.|
