Cleaning & Restoration Breaking News

PCHS and Henry Ford

The basis for Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PCHS) and the principles upon which the Ford Motor Company was built have more than a few things in common. How so?

According to Rex Morrison, founder of the Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PCHS) Consortium and PCHS system: “When I first became a custodial supervisor at Washoe County School District in Reno NV, there was chaos and confusion among the 100 schools and 450 custodians. We had 450 ways we cleaned a classroom and 450 ways we cleaned a restroom. In classrooms, walking back and forth to empty trash cans into a central trash barrel on a remote cart was time-wasting. We developed a production method that standardized cleaning processes and tools, and eliminated most of the walking back and forth by taking the tool to the job rather than the job to the tool - in particular, a rolling trash barrel enables moving rapidly and in sequence through classrooms to empty smaller receptacles in a single trip.”
