The rapid spread of COVID-19 has upended industries around the world, requiring many companies to quickly pivot their business models. Since the arrival of the virus in the metro DC region, disinfection services – once a specialty offering – has become a major aspect of our business. We quickly shifted gears and were able to meet the demand after securing supplies, establishing the appropriate protocols, and training specialty teams to work safely in this new environment.
While COVID-19 prompted this shift, pivoting our business is nothing new for Mister Kleen. This year we mark a major company milestone in the high security sector. Becoming a leading contract provider to prestigious and demanding sites didn’t happen overnight. President Ernie Clark, Jr., CBSE realized after the 9/11 terrorist attacks that stricter security protocols would require new systems, training, and unique hiring strategies. After laying the groundwork to obtain the proper credentials, Mister Kleen won its first high security facility contract in 2005.
The Mister Kleen Difference
Over the years, Mister Kleen has built a strong reputation among agencies and contractors in the intelligence community. We’ve been able to meet the strict demands of high security facilities by investing continuously in human resources, recruiting, security, and training. These have become the differentiators that set us apart in the high security world.
For instance, our dedicated recruiting team focuses on finding and skilled employees with appropriate security clearances. In the competitive Washington DC market, this is a challenge for many companies – a challenge that our team successfully meets by hiring and retaining quality employees who maintain clearances of all levels.
In addition, our Vice President of Security and Security Specialist are continuously training and staying up to date on the latest security issues and trends. They in turn conduct industry-specific training and programs such as the Employee Security Awareness Program. This program empowers employees to work with facility personnel to help identify and reduce security threats.
In the age of COVID-19, maintaining a safe and clean facility is mission critical to keeping high security facilities operational. Learn more about our services for your high security facility by contacting us by email, phone at (703) 719-6900, or our online form.
