5 Pillars of TKOSFive Pillars of The King’s Operation System

Click these five tabs to read about the Five Pillars of Intelligent Cleaning for Health >

Scientific advancements over the past two decades provide facility and janitorial managers with powerful tools for measuring air quality. The King’s now conducts Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) studies with air particulate testing technology typically used in laboratories, clean rooms, pharmacies, and hospitals.

Likewise, studying business processes reveals data that impacts efficiency and labor costs, such as: labor production rates; staff turnover; safety; selection and usage of equipment and disposable supplies; and others.

Intelligent Cleaning for Health can reduce indoor air pollutants by an average 75%.

Simultaneously, we can cut labor costs by 10% to 30%, driving down overall facility cleaning costs by 30%.

And along the way, personnel are reinvigorated, front-line team members and management alike.

Applying management process principles, Intelligent Cleaning for Health turns the janitorial work flow on its ear. Zone-based work flow (where janitorial staff are isolated, each in a separate zone of a building) is replaced by Team-based work flow.

Team members are trained as specialists, not generalists.

Team specialization can increase productivity by 10% up to 30% over the outdated area and zone cleaning system.

Use of standardized cleaning tools and materials improves an organization’s ability to train, to track daily usage and to perform proper preventive maintenance. These can slash your material costs by up to 30% annually.

The King’s management team partners with senior facility executives to identify and solve challenges in the hiring, motivation and supervision of team members.

The TKOS Academy provides the mission, purpose and direction for a facility cleaning organization. We work with every area of the organization so that every department is aligned with the purpose of Intelligent Cleaning for Health.

At the end of the day, the best system in the world fails without good leadership. Managers and supervisors who work in The King’s Operation System become the very best coaches in the industries. Our managers are Coaches who educate, train, encourage, discipline, track progress and put their Teams in a positive position to succeed.

The TKOS Training Camp for janitorial staff members makes all the difference in effective implementation of Intelligent Cleaning for Health. The heartbeat of our cleaning organization is found in our training room.

The TKOS Training Camp encompasses general knowledge about the causes of illness, how to identify hazardous chemicals, how to protect themselves and others when cleaning up blood and bodily fluids; it demonstrates the difference in the Team Specialist approach compared to the outdated zone cleaning methods; and it provides hands-on instruction with equipment, supplies and the record keeping systems for accountability.

No, we don’t make them do push-ups in our Training Camp, but we do put their minds to work and flex their brain muscles! During this critical time, new team members learn our philosophy of cleaning and why it is so darn important!

Beyond teaching basic knowledge and skills, our training changes the way people think about cleaning. Being in the cleaning business means we are a part of the health care business.

Team members graduate with a diploma and Certified Cleaning Worker badge and lanyard. And they grow from thinking “I just got a cleaning job” to “Now I’m a health care worker in the cleaning business.”

The TKOS School of Floor Care certifies floor care specialists in the proper maintenance of carpet, vinyl and stone floor applications.

Cleaning for Health is one of the most overlooked health care functions in the U.S. According to Dr. Michael Berry, retired deputy director of the EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment:

“Effective cleaning is the most fundamental activity we can employ to create healthy conditions where modern society spends the vast majority of their lives,” said Dr. Berry.

The facility cleaning industry is poised to make a great contribution to the health and wellness of our society. Intelligent Cleaning for Health decreases absenteeism, increases productivity and fosters working and learning environments where people can thrive.

TKOS integrates data-driven science, refined business processes, leadership and janitorial team member training to make this promise a reality.

15 Years of Innovation

TKOS is a comprehensive management and operation system for large facility cleaning that produces a cleaner, healthier indoor environment, often at significant cost savings.

Since the early 2000s, we have seen revolutionary innovation in the facility cleaning industry.

Science and process engineering have been brought to bear upon traditional janitorial practices with stunning results. Scientific measurement can now quantify the presence of certain pollutants, airborne viruses, dust, fungal growth and various pathogenic micro-organisms within building interiors.

Re-engineered cleaning equipment and materials enable us to eradicate these pollutants down to a microscopic size of 0.3 microns.

Business process engineering empowers facility and janitorial managers to implement change with confidence. Why? Because TKOS distills the science and engineering of Cleaning for Health into a simple leadership and training process. The TKOS Academy and Training Camps are a hands-on, fun educational experience that reinvigorate management and front-line staff members alike.

Finally, what can be measured can be proven. Metrics and periodic audits deliver the evidence that management can believe in: improved health and wellness, cost savings and long-term enhancement of your real estate and facility investment.
