Early Adopter Training to Meet Your Needs

We always talk about how important our people are to our business. They’re what has helped keep us in business for 30 years. It’s also the reason we’re able to provide such high quality, safe carpet and textile cleaning and data center cleaning services to our clients. In order to protect our people, we were early adopters to offer complimentary COVID-19 safety training for both our employees as well as a session for our clients. This training was in addition to the long list of training and certifications our team members already hold, as well as help assist our clients with planning needs for 2020 and 2021.

Introduction to Infection Control Specific to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Our team and clients sat down with Derrick A. Denis, a well-known industry expert in indoor environmental quality and industrial hygiene. Knowing the vital role of carpet, textile and surface cleaning, it was important to offer training on how best we could help remediate COVID-19 in the properties we serve. We learned important ideology that has stuck with us since our training:

Infection prevention requires everyone’s attention.

As vaccines roll out across the country, we’re more hopeful than ever for the future of the US. But, our business has evolved definitively to include a responsibility to provide a safe environment for our employees, our clients and anyone who enters the properties we service.

Everyone is involved in COVID-19 prevention – this is a team effort we’re proud to have specialized training in.

From training to traveling to being our top problem solver in the field, Mike always goes the extra mile for the company and has dedicated his personal time to help his coworkers on many occasions. Mike is so good at his job, we often joke that his parents bought him carpet cleaning equipment to play with as a kid!

 

Riding the Spirit of the Season – Jorge’s Bikes Give Back

Jorge Fernandez BikesJorge Fernandez has been a part of our Square Care team for 17 years. Five years ago, we learned something very cool about Jorge that we didn’t know: he was collecting old bicycle parts and, alongside his two young children (“teaching them a little bit about hard work and helping others”), he sanded the bike frames, painted them and completely fixed up the bikes to make them beautiful again.

Jorge would invest his own money to repair and complete each bike, buying new tires, chains, handlebar grips and more. Some of his bikes might be made from five different bicycles and their parts, but the end result is a like-new bicycle in tip-top shape. Each year Jorge repairs these bikes so that they can be donated to underprivileged children for the holidays, up 85 bikes or more a year. When the Square Care team learned of Jorge’s bikes we were proud to help contribute funds for some of the repairs, but the bikes continue to be a labor of love for Jorge.

Every year around Christmas, Jorge and his family load the bikes into his truck and trailer and deliver the bikes to the kids in need. When you see an 8-year-old walk up to his trailer with a ripped t-shirt and no shoes, then ride away on a new bike with an ear-to-ear grin… It brings a tear of joy to our eyes and a smile to our hearts.

In our opinion, the world needs more people who make our communities a better place, more people like Jorge Fernandez.
