CLEVELAND, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people do not realize the extent to which their Janitor safeguards their health, but the Cleveland Public Library does. During its 15th annual Custodial Recognition Day, Library management staff acknowledged that a clean building allows the Library to fulfill its mission to be the best urban library system in the country.
During the 15th Annual Custodial Recognition Day, Myron Scruggs, the Library's property management administrator, and Jerry Goldman, the provider of PortionPac®'s sustainable cleaning system, thanked each Building Service Worker onstage. Each Building Service Worker also received a Janus® recognition gift: a long sleeved polo shirt bearing the blended logo of the Cleveland Library and PortionPac Chemical Corporation.
"The Building Service Workers at the Cleveland Public Library approach their work with enormous care because they know what they do impacts everyone. From cleaning library tables to sanitizing restrooms, their work defines the experience for all library visitors," said Mr. Scruggs.
Janitors who maintain a clean and healthy facility are essential to the Library's productive learning environment. In ancient mythology, Janus, the "Custodian of Treasures," protected the riches of the gods. It is from the name Janus that the modern word "Janitor" is derived. And like the Janus of ancient times, today's cleaning professionals safeguard the treasures of the buildings they maintain — treasures such as physical property, a clean environment, and the health and safety of those who work at and visit the facility.
