Exterior facility cleaning easily handled
When it comes to facility exterior cleaning, Ameri-Clean cannot wait to get its hands dirty. The multi-faceted company provides an array of specialized cleaning services ranging from the soaring (historic county building facades and sports stadiums) to the microscopic (mold testing and animal waste removal). No wonder Ameri-Clean’s clients boast about its spotless record.
“They did a really good job,” said Glenn Green, Sam Houston State University carpentry, paint, and sign foreperson, referring to Ameri-Clean’s work on the exteriors of nine campus buildings, including windows.
“Everybody on campus was happy with the way the buildings looked when they got through, and they are easy to work with,” said Green, adding: “They worked around our schedule so well we hardly knew they were here working.”
For Ameri-Clean owner Richard Davis, his job is to make facility exterior cleaning look that easy — even when it’s not.
“It’s more than garbage pickup,” said Davis. “You have to know how to handle it.”
By “handle it,” Davis refers to an astonishing range of full service work, including algae removal from intricate, historic architecture, adding moisture barrier sealant, rooftop cleaning and waterproofing, cleaning windows of hard water stains, such as calcium, and restoring bronze window frames faded by the sun, mold testing, and removing such hazardous waste materials as paint, computers, dissected frogs and mercury thermometers from science classrooms.
“Our clients like using us for things they can’t clean,” said Davis. “We don’t promote all of these, but our clients understand all we do and rely on us for it. We work together to get the job done so others can do what they need to do.”
Oftentimes, working within a tight schedule is a big part of Ameri-Clean’s job, especially when academic buildings must be ready before school starts. Davis said his team recently completed 38 buildings on a university campus in 10 days. “We had to do all those projects with quality and precision within a three week time period, yet we didn’t skimp on any of these,” he said proudly.
Angleton ISD can attest to the company’s range and performance. The Houston-area school district has used the Choice Partners contract to access Ameri-Clean for multiple projects, including cleaning building facades, roofs and stadiums.
“[Davis] stands behind his work,” said Rudy Santos, director of maintenance, Angleton ISD. “He’s a great partner to have, especially in preserving the biggest investments the community has.”
Santos has even recommended Ameri-Clean to others when their buildings need attention. “[Davis] is the right person to take care of it,” he said.
Ameri-Clean works across Texas — Dallas, Austin/San Antonio, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Hidalgo and Corpus Christi — though at its home in Houston the company regularly cleans facilities at the Harris County Department of Education.
“We have him clean the exterior of our buildings on a regular schedule,” said Les Hooper, executive director of facilities at HCDE. “They do a great job. They always go the extra mile to give us the level of service we desire. This is another instance of us using our own Choice Partners contracts.”
