Janitronics Building Services’ Warehouse Manager, Rafael Moscat continues to give back to the community by directing The Stars Baseball League. It is a non-profit organization that offers a comprehensive youth Baseball program to ages 6-18 in the communities of Roslindale, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury and Dorchester. The Stars provides the opportunity for kids to practice, learn and play the game of baseball, in a healthy environment.
Earlier this month marked Rafael’s 4th year of taking time off from his Janitronics responsibilities to coach a team of 10+ kids from the local program in the Dominican Republic for a one-week tournament. All the money to fund the trip was raised by the team and their coaches through donations and raffle ticket sales. The Stars won two games, lost two games, and tied one game. Great job, Stars!
The tournament was not only a sportsmanship experience, but it was also a family reunion for a couple of the players. Anderson, age 16, had not seen his mother in 5 years and Carlos, age 18, had not seen his mother and grandmother in 3 years until the tournament started. It was a sweet surprise for Anderson and Carlos because no one knew their families would be in the crowds watching them play. According to Rafael, it was a very special and emotional moment for everyone to see the boys reconnecting with their family members. Both Anderson and Carlos got to enjoy an unforgettable time with their loved ones for the rest of the trip.
Janitronics Building Services wants to say how proud we are of Rafael for going above and beyond to make a difference in many kids’ lives every year. Thank you, Rafael, for your commitment to making a difference in the community.

We are proud to announce that we have been able to purchase a much-needed washing machine for Sister Margarita and the girls, personally delivered by our Senior VP of Operations, Danny Nova.
To quote Mr. Nova regarding his experience, “I must admit that I got a little bit emotional when I saw how excited and happy those little girls got when they saw the washing machine. They couldn’t believe it was for them, they were jumping, laughing, and repeating gracias, gracias, muchas gracias.”

Thank you to our dedicated team of employees who organized this fabulous effort. Last month, we collected dozens of sheets, towels, soaps, toothpaste, toothbrushes, laundry detergent, and more to send to the shelter in the Dominican Republic.

Janitronics Building Services is proud to announce that Joao Rodrigues has been promoted to Account Manager having started his janitorial career at 200 Clarendon almost 20 years ago. His career began as a Grounds Porter and was quickly promoted to Lead Day Porter within only 6 months because of his eagerness to exceed at his job and responsibilities. As Lead Day Porter, Joao assisted the Account Manager in daily operations, monitored the property for cleanliness and was responsible for assisting in managing all daytime activities.
Joao has continued to show enormous care for our clients, tenants, employees, and his colleagues. In 2014, Joao was promoted to Day Staff Manager and supervised dozens of employees for 200 Clarendon and Back Bay Station.
It was evident to our management team that Joao’s next move would be to oversee the night cleaning operations and he became Night Manager of 200 Clarendon and Back Bay Station. As Night Manager, he embraced the new responsibilities of payroll, project management, snow removal operations and acted as the liaison between the different departments.
As his experience grew so did his excitement to learn new tasks and soon became our Assistant Account Manager in 2019. His role was to supervise the day and night staff (over 80 employees) and manage additional projects at multiple locations. His hard work and effective management helped lead the charge of safety and wellness for his team during the COVID crisis.
During Joao’s career advancements he continued to thrive on training and education related to the Janitronics pursuit to expand our ESG and DEI awareness. He became a Fitwel Ambassador in 2020 and completed course studies earning the Corporate Sustainability Certificate at NYU Leonard N. Stern School of Business in January 2022. These courses provide participants with the ability to make a strong difference in their profession through ESG (environment, social, and governance), sustainable supply chain management, employee, and consumer engagement.
Joao immigrated from Cape Verde when he was 17 years old and is now married with 3 children. Joao continues to inspire all of us at Janitronics to maintain growth in our pursuit of excellence as individuals and as a company. Joao Rodrigues is the embodiment of Janitronics Building Services commitment to enhancing the clients we serve and the employees we are incredibly grateful to work with every day.
We thank Joao for his continuous hard work and enthusiasm in promoting our mission of making our world a cleaner and healthier place, one building at a time.
Please join us in congratulating Joao on his new role!
Janitronics Building Services wants to congratulate our on-site employees, Jose Martinez and Jimmy Nova for each receiving the "Tenant Appreciation" Award. The remarkable Award signifies that an employee has gone above and beyond their responsibilities while providing outstanding services in their building.

Jose Martinez is known for his friendly personality, helpfulness, and for always smiling. He recently offered to help a client with fitting very large and heavy equipment into an elevator, a task that is not part of his responsibilities. Everything arrived safely and without damage on the proper floor of the building, thanks to him and his team. Jimmy Nova has a very strong work ethic and has quickly acclimated to his new role as a grounds porter. According to one tenant, the outside of the building has never looked better. Thank you to both Jose Martinez and Jimmy Nova for continuing to embody the Janitronics Building Services client partnership model. We are celebrating our 45th year because of your dedication to making our world a cleaner and healthier place, one building at a time.
Keep up the great work, Jose and Jimmy!

Janitronics Building Services, an active member of the ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, recently recieved the following notice we wanted to share with you.
Throughout the pandemic, ISSA has kept a close eye on the latest updates and developments from public health agencies around the world to ensure we can effectively serve our members who are instrumental to protecting public health and safety.
On April 5, 2021, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised its guidelines related to cleaning and disinfecting against COVID-19. We would like to provide additional clarification around these updates and offer clarity on how ISSA and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC) are responding.
The most pertinent updates from the CDC include:
• “Cleaning with products containing soap or detergent reduces germs on surfaces by removing contaminants and may also weaken or damage some of the virus particles, which decreases risk of infection from surfaces.”
• “In most cases, fogging, fumigation, and wide-area or electrostatic spraying is not recommended as a primary method of surface disinfection and has several safety risks to consider.”
We issued a press release on Friday, April 9, which offers clear and detailed information about the role that surface cleaning and disinfection, proven products and equipment, and proper training play in reducing exposure to pathogens.
We also developed a new Straight Talk! episode, featuring Patty Olinger, GBAC Executive Director; Dr. Paul Meechan, formerly with the CDC; and Michael Diamond, Executive Director of The Infection Prevention Strategy (TIPS), that discusses the latest CDC changes and provides further clarification.
Lastly, we have released a video highlighting the public health benefits tied to GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation to increase awareness of this important program. Watch it here.
Janitronics will continue to keep you updated with the most current information available. If you have any questions, please reach out to us directly.
In April of 2021, the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued new guidance related to cleaning of surfaces and the use of disinfectants. Janitronics has been following the best practices identified by the CDC since the beginning of the pandemic. We also have been an integral component of a Boston-based health security task force to provide guidance to our stakeholders. We continue to be in alignment with the CDC, where they note that washing hands and using sanitizer is a priority. The statement continues: "Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can also reduce the risk of infection" in a building.
You can read about the new guidance at the CDC here. Key points are to clean and disinfect if:

Last night was the sixth Annual Building Impact NonGala. Building Impact is a nonprofit that supports other nonprofits with the goal of Strengthening Communities through Volunteering with Measurable Impact. This is done in three ways: Volunteering in Buildings, Volunteering in offices and through corporate days of service. It was originally founded by Kevin McCall and Paradigm Properties with 3 other founding partners, The Bulfinch Companies, National Development and The Davis Companies. Like any Nonprofit, Building Impact needed to come up with unique ways to raise money to work toward their mission. Six years ago, the NonGala concept was born; instead of people dressing up to come to a chicken dinner in a ballroom, Building Impact would mobilize the community by creating an event that supported their nonprofit partners through service projects done on site. The event also recognizes our partners in the building community and those who volunteer throughout the year.
As a member of the board of Building Impact, Dorrian volunteered to lead the efforts on the event the first year and then continued in that role for 5 years as the Host Committee Chair. During that time Building Impact raised over $300,000 and had over 1,500 volunteers. Dorrian decided last year would be her final year in that leadership role. At the event last night Building Impact surprised Dorrian with a recognition Award at the event for five years of service in this role.
