Comprehensive Management & Sustainable Services for K-12 School Facilities

O,R&L has been providing quality management, maintenance and janitorial services for K-12 educational facilities since 1999. In today’s economy, we recognize that budgets under constant stress. The tendency is to cut maintenance programs to save valuable dollars, but in effect, work to reduce the value of the asset due to unending deferral of maintenance and sub-par maintenance programs.

With our asset management background, O,R&L’s managers understand how to develop responsible budgets that include regular maintenance activities to reduce the event of emergency capital budget expenses. Our proactive management and maintenance services include implementation of Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), trained and licensed Chief Building Engineers qualified to program sophisticated Energy Management Systems and manage energy saving programs , inventory control, and cost saving initiatives.

O,R&L's successful sustainable green cleaning program is widely recognized. O,R&L utilizes Green Seal cleaning chemicals wherever possible, low impact cleaning equipment including HEPA filter vacuums, robotics where appropriate, micro-fiber color-coded reusable mop heads and no chemical strippers. We provide comprehensive classroom and field training which includes product usage, cleaning methods, equipment maintenance, OSHA safety, blood borne pathogen procedures, hazardous material handling and communication and cross contamination prevention.

A study by The Ashkin Group, a consulting firm specializing in greening the cleaning process, confirmed the following results with a more thorough cleaning process:

  • Total illnesses declined 24 percent
  • Number of doctor visits declined 34 percent
  • Number of courses of antibiotics declined 24 percent
  • Attendance increased 4.5 percent

These statistics are impressive. O,R&L understands the correlation between facility condition and employee productivity and will be committed to provide a clean, healthy environment for the facility.
