Now that we’re approaching almost a full year of COVID-19 adjustments, we all have stories about how we’ve had to pivot both personally and professionally. At Sunshine, our first response was to make sure our teams were properly trained in the latest procedures and technology available for combating this virus as well as any future infectious disease outbreaks. We turned to our industry’s leading trade organization, ISSA, to secure training for our top managers.

Most recently, we earned a GBAC STAR™ Accreditation for our headquarters offices here in South Florida and are looking forward to helping our customers and others obtain the designation for their offices. You’ll read more about this accreditation in the article below.

Our pledge to all of our clients always will be to work hard to use the best cleaning techniques for keeping people safe. First earning the GBAC designation and gaining important expertise was our way of demonstrating this commitment.

Please continue to stay safe and well as we get on the other side of this pandemic.

Best regards,
Sunshine Cleaning Systems Earns GBAC STAR™ Accreditation
for South Florida Headquarters
The headquarters of Sunshine Cleaning Systems in the City of Oakland Park, near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has received the GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the newest designation for facilities that meet strict cleaning and disinfection procedures for handling infectious disease outbreaks, including coronavirus strains such as COVID-19. According to the worldwide cleaning industry association (ISSA)’s Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), which offers the program, Sunshine is one of the first janitorial firms in the United States to receive the designation.

Widely accepted by industry leaders as the seal of approval for facilities following strict cleaning and disinfection procedures for handling infectious disease outbreaks, the STAR™ accreditation establishes specific guidelines to assist facilities in their cleaning, disinfecting and infectious disease prevention protocols.

The 20-part program includes a facility commitment statement, emergency preparedness and response, facility infection disease prevention practices, a worker health program, and audits and inspections. To date, more than 3,000 facilities around the world have earned this certification. Members of the Sunshine team also have individually completed the GBAC fundamentals course.
Congratulations to Derek Auckland and Cy Angelos!

Congratulations to both Derek and Cy for assuming new and important leadership roles at Sunshine.
We Love Our Employees!
In honor of the month of love, we decided to hold a contest on social media for all of our employees to participate in. To enter, they had to like our social media page and ‘Share the Love’ with us in the comments by leaving a comment about why the love working at Sunshine! The winner, Crystal Vega, was chosen at random to win the grand prize of a $50 AMEX gift card for her comment about her manager, Bobby Bastian:

"Love working for sunshine!! Boss man is awesome and understanding. Also where I am stationed I absolutely love the people here I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!!"
Escalator and Moving Sidewalk Cleaning
Cleaning escalators and moving sidewalks require the use of an advanced, high-tech machine. The technically advanced escalator cleaning machine used by the Sunshine team thoroughly cleans both the escalator step and the riser with a 15-brush system. It’s the only machine approved by escalator manufacturers worldwide. No dismantling of the escalator is required, resulting in reduced downtime and cost savings. The result is a like-new appearance. The cleaning of landing plates and rail glass is handled as well.
Springtime is around the corner and the perfect time to plan for deep cleaning in all areas. We offer janitorial services as well and are experts at getting schools ready for the return of students!
