Case Study: Corporate campus with more than 250,000 sq. ft. Class A office space.
Facility: Campus located in the Houston region with five separate buildings and a total of 10 floors.
Scientific Study: The original walk-through and indoor air quality (IAQ) test, conducted in March, measured the status of 0.3 micron levels of indoor air particulates. Multiple samples were taken measuring indoor air particulates with testing that is typically deployed in laboratories, clean rooms, pharmacies and hospitals.
Situation: Facility management was concerned about low air quality resulting from 0.3 micron airborne particulates, such as dust, dust mites, dust mite feces, dead skin cells, the H1N1 virus, fungal and mold spores, and many harmful bacteria, known to cause respiratory disorders in approximately 30% of the adult population.
Solution: The King’s Operation System Pilot
A 90-day pilot of The King’s Operation System (TKOS) began in July and a progress audit was conducted in October. This 90-day pilot involved janitorial staff and supervisors who were graduates of The King’s Training Camp, and who implemented:
- Cleaning and managing the filtration of our 4-level back pack vacuum system
- Dusting with microfiber cloths and duster covers on special “wooly dusters”
- Microfiber flat mops using a double-sided mop bucket system, and
- Laundering cleaning cloths and mop heads frequently.
Results: The transition to The King’s Operation System was smooth, with benefits realized in the very first week. Over the 90-day pilot, these percentage improvements in parts-per-million of 0.3 micron particles were documented in lobbies and office areas of the five buildings on this campus:
Building 1: 71% to 78%
Building 2: 42% to 57%
Building 3: 84% to 86%
Building 4: 69%
Building 5: 86%
Long-term benefits affect the overall real estate investment value. The life expectancy of building assets, such as carpet, hard floor surfaces, paint, computers, servers, etc. is increased.
