Our School Maintenance Services
From the operating room to the classroom

For over 60 years, Star Healthcare Environmental Services has been providing comprehensive, single-source, cleaning services to the healthcare industry. Our knowledge and expertise in cleaning medical facilities, including operating rooms, makes us uniquely qualified in infection control. We utilize the same expertise in infection control to assure a safe and healthy school environment for your students and faculty.

If we can clean surgery centers, imagine what we can do for your school!

Schools are a haven for germs.

Millions of school days are lost annually due to the common cold and other infectious diseases conveyed by contaminated fixtures, surfaces and poor indoor air quality. Recent outbreaks of STAPH and MRSA infections have prompted school closings, disruption in classes, and serious health concerns among parents and students.

We create custodial services tailored to your needs.

Every educational institution is different, no two are exactly the same. Our program begins with a review of your custodial needs based on the unique environment of your school/campus. Our management team will perform a complete assessment of your facility using APPA guidelines. Based on this evaluation, a program is created to specifically meet your maintenance and staffing requirements. In this way, you get and pay for the exact level and type of maintenance that you require.

Anytime you need us, we’re there.

Our staff is available 24 hours a day to professionally meet your needs. If a problem should arise, you will see a service manager within hours and the problem will be resolved the same day.

At Star, safety and security within your school are extremely important to us. On-the-job safety seminars are conducted to meet our, your and OSHA’s requirements... helping to create a safe work environment when we’re there... and when we’re not.

For your facility’s security, background checks coupled with extensive interviewing are conducted on every Star employee to guarantee that we are providing you with the safest possible staff.

Why should you consider outsourcing your custodial services?

The current economic climate has left most schools financially burdened. As school budgets shrink, cost cutting is becoming a greater priority. One of the areas that can have an immediate and significant impact on savings, and help your bottom line, is the outsourcing of your custodial services. Outsourcing can reduce your operating costs and free up much needed capital for you to invest in other critical areas.
