Which article particularly drew your attention?
The Article that particularly grabbed our attention was titled ‘Individualised Approach to Warehouse FM’, about the trend of approaching facilities management for warehouses. It is very important for us to understand the functionalities and techniques to use for giving services in warehouses to maintain a clean, hygiene and safe environment.

Do you have any suggestions for what Clean India Journal should cover in coming issues?
Although Clean India Journal already covers most of the relevant subjects related to facilities management in India, it can share stories of the global management of the Covid situation in the facilities management industry to help us broaden our perspective from a global point of view and maintain a global standard of services in India.
We want to know methods and techniques used by service providers in different countries which we can incorporate in India. Also, work-from-home is not possible in our industry; services need to be provided in person, such as housekeeping, maintenance, security etc. We would like to have a few articles on how to motivate our staff during such times and make the work run smoothly.

My connection to the global FM industry
I got connected to Clean India Journal in 2012 when I visited the Clean India Expo for the first time in Mumbai; since then, I am a regular subscriber of the magazine. I was new to the FM industry; Clean India Journal has been my main source of information and guidance for every aspect of the FM business. It has certainly played a major role in growing my business and kept me updated about the latest developments in the world’s FM industry. This is the reason I am able to remain attached to the FM world from a small place like Karad in Satara district, Maharashtra. The work of the magazine team is really excellent and commendable.
I have been reading Clean India Journal for the past many years. As a provider of sofa and carpet cleaning services since 2008, I have used the magazine to keep myself updated about the latest products and technology in the market.
I request the magazine team to reach out to the Chairman and Secretary of all housing societies, which face many challenges in cleaning and maintenance. This will help educate them about the latest techniques available.
