Not Your Average Janitorial Company

Zelko & Sasha Francic- Smartclean™ Cleaning & Maintenance - IowaWe wanted to know what makes Iowa’s number one janitorial company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with Account Manager, Sasha Francic.

The first question we had for Sasha was what makes SmartClean® unique compared to their competition in Iowa. Here’s what he had to say:

“[With us,] you are going to have someone 24/7 who you can call and get information from. We are the only 100-percent certified company with CIMSGB, and we take pride in that.”

Sasha went on to tell us a little bit about why SmartClean® was founded:

“We saw a niche, and there were certain companies that dominated this field. There was room to start a business, and we started with residential but had commercial in mind, and it’s what we focus on now.”


Building Success Through Quality Work and a Dedication to Customers

When we asked Sasha what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at SmartClean®,  he said:

“We moved to this country in 1994 and understood what it took to start a business. This is not just a job; it is our life, and it shows in the quality of our work and our dedication to our customers.”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, SmartClean® has spread the word about their service by doing lunch and learns with property management companies, social media and a great organic presence, which is a result of their focus on SEO (search engine optimization).

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way SmartClean® has. Here’s Sasha’s advice for them:

“Have an open-door policy. If you are not just in it for the money but want to provide for your family and the families of your employees, you will be in a position to be successful.”

Congratulations to the team at SmartClean® for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Sasha, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend SmartClean® in Des Moines.




SmartClean® Further Innovates with Investment in Electrostatic Technology

SmartClean® Further Innovates with Investment in Electrostatic Technology

SmartClean® takes pride in being able to tackle the toughest cleaning jobs and now with the Clorox® Total 360® System with electrostatic technology, we can do so faster and more efficiently than ever before.


DES MOINES, Iowa, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — SmartClean® is thrilled to announce our latest investment to enhance our cleaning offerings and better tackle even the toughest jobs: the Clorox® Total 360® System. The Clorox® Total 360® System uses electrostatic technology to enable superior surface coverage and more effectively eliminate illness-causing pathogens, helping us provide our customers with top quality service and ensure the safety of their environments.

Clorox® Total 360® SystemThis flu season proved challenging for all states including Iowa – for example, in the span of a single week, three long term care facilities experienced influenza outbreaks.1 Outbreaks have severe and far-reaching effects on our customers between facility closures, absenteeism and losses in productivity. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), on average, productivity losses related to absenteeism costs employers $1,685 per employee annually. The illness-causing germs that contribute to high rates of absenteeism can survive on surfaces from days to months making comprehensive cleaning and disinfection critical to safeguarding facilities’ environments.

SmartClean® strives to provide only the best services and solutions of our customers, which is why we chose to invest in the Clorox® Total 360® System. With the addition of cutting-edge electrostatic technology, we found we could deliver our customers a higher value as it allows us to do our job faster and more efficiently – the system can cover up to 18,000 sq. ft. per hour, using 65% less solution and working up to four times faster than traditional cleaners.

The Clorox® Total 360® System works by using electrostatic technology to charge Clorox® disinfecting and sanitizing solutions. The charge attracts the solutions to surrounding surfaces with a force stronger than gravity allowing them to uniformly wrap and coat surfaces, including even the hardest-to-reach areas that can be often missed by manual cleaning.

“SmartClean® is about being able to tackle any job asked of us by a customer, no matter how tough. The Clorox® Total 360® System goes above and beyond traditional cleaning methods. Its proven electrostatic technology offers a safe way to cover more surface areas while eliminating illness-causing germs. This is a much more efficient and effective way of cleaning for our customers while saving our employees time and labor,” said Zelko Francic, President, SmartClean®.

Since purchasing the electrostatic sprayer, SmartClean® has already received positive feedback from customers. “All of our customers are asking for this product to be brought into their facilities – after the tough flu season we experienced, preventing illness is top of mind for our customers. The customers we have serviced with the Clorox® Total 360® System could not be more impressed.”

SmartClean® uses the Clorox® Total 360® System to treat a wide range of Central Iowa-area facilities –  from health and medical clinics to office buildings. There’s not a facility we clean which wouldn’t benefit from this safe and effective electrostatic technology cleaning system.

Why Microfiber?

SmartClean MicrofiberAt SmartClean®, we like to do things differently than others. We go above and beyond when it comes to commercial cleaning services. Between our equipment and techniques, SmartClean® finds unique ways to be environmentally friendly and green. Today we are going to explain why we clean with  microfiber rags instead of paper towels.

Paper towels may be easily accessible andwidely used by cleaning companies when dusting and disinfecting surfaces, but they may not be the best choice for your office. Here are three reasons to clean with microfiber technology.

  • Microfiber cloths are cost-effective. A roll of paper towel might be cheaper than the cost of a pack of microfiber cloths, however, when you calculate the ongoing expense of purchasing new rolls of paper towel, microfiber cloths offer the greatest savings.
  • Microfiber cloths are “green.”Wash and reuse – it’s that easy. These cloths save money and reduce waste. Besides, reducing paper towel consumption is the simplest way to go green. The also dry much faster than regular cloths so it makes us use our time more wisely.
  • Microfiber cloths absorb spills and trap dust better than paper towels.Not only do paper towels do a poor job eliminating dust, they often leave residue on surfaces. When it comes to using microfiber on glass, it doesn’t leave streaks like paper towels do.

SmartClean® is CIMS-GB certified which means we have put countless hours into perfecting our cleaning process, training programs, and overall operation. Microfiber is just one example of how we make an effort to keep our processes green building friendly. We also use equipment such as vacuums that have HEPA filters and use low energy. On top of these green processes, it is also better for our employees and their health.

We take pride in caring about all aspects of our employees’ health and the happiness of our clients.
