Anago Cleaning Systems is the first commercial cleaning franchise to earn the GBAC STAR, the highest rating issued by the GBAC (Global Biorisk Advisory Council) for ensuring facilities implement strict protocols for biorisk situations.
“Anago Cleaning Systems is proud to be the first commercial cleaning franchise company in the nation to earn this significant benchmark in biorisk cleanliness and workplace safety,” said Adam Povlitz, CEO and president of Anago Cleaning Systems.
“As a leader in the commercial cleaning franchise industry, it is imperative to stay up-to-date with the most advanced and innovative cleaning and disinfection practices and adopt them in our South Florida-based international headquarters.”
Povlitz added that Anago had adopted the GBAC accreditation process into its international master and unit franchise program guidelines. Each business serviced by an Anago franchise is implementing the latest cleaning and disinfectant protocols learned through the COVID-19 experience.
Speaking about the GBAC STAR rating system, John Barrett, executive director of ISSA, said the accreditation program is precisely what facilities need to reopen and keep staff, customers, and communities safe. As the only nationwide commercial cleaning franchise to be accredited with the GBAC STAR award, Anago joins a huge number of high-profile facilities in achieving the certification.
“As a COVID-19 frontline industry, Anago was committed through each step of the pandemic by continuing to evolve and implement new disinfecting protocols when they became available. Since its inception, Anago has maintained a firm seat on the cutting edge of new technologies in both cleaning applications and processes, and in customer service as well,” said Povlitz.
Back in March, Colorado-based CCS Facility Services had become the first business in the world to achieve GBAC STAR Service Accreditation. That new program was announced in February and is designed for building service contractors and other outsourced cleaning service providers seeking third-party validation for their cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention programs.
