Jancast # 2/98  (from Oct. 2004)

Mark Warner, my Jancast co-host, is on the road again so we have posted  a replay of Jancast #2 from October 13th, 2004. This is where it all started. We went on to win the ISSA 2005 Innovation Award for Jancast.com. This show is 100% audio, Youtube had just started this year and there were not any streaming services. Remember that there was not easy access to high-speed internet and the iPhone was not introduced until 2007. Jancast was the first podcast for the cleaning industry. Enjoy this step back in time.

Jancast #97 – Podcasting to a cleaner & healthier world.

The week of days…

Lots of special days this week with Cinco de Mayo, National Beverage Day, National Nurses Day, and World Hand Hygiene Day.

The SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands global campaign, launched in 2009 and celebrated annually on 5 May (World Hand Hygiene Day) aims to maintain global promotion, visibility, and sustainability of hand hygiene in health care and to ‘bring people together in support of hand hygiene improvement around the world

All of that and what does Corona beer have to do with some of those celebrations?

You will never guess what the new allocation is!

I am flying solo this week while Mark is out in the wild doing his first in-person training since Covid. I cover the 15% increase in the use of Catsup or Ketchup, new CDC recommendations on electrostatic sprayers, and all of the new price increases coming.

Here is the link I talked about in the podcast on the new CDC guidelines-


Jancast #92 Podcasting to a cleaner & healthier world.

Allocations are really here again

Seems like we just went through this already but allocations are back. As a result of the Texas freeze and disruptions of the supply change due to plants not being properly shut down, key raw materials for floor finish and floor strippers are in short supply. We also demo how to use a moisture meter to locate spots.

Jancast #91 Podcasting to a cleaner & healthier world.

Are Allocation Back?

In this week’s show, we discuss the new supply chain issues caused by the freezing weather in Texas a few weeks ago. It seems that not only were the power plants shut down, so were some major chemical plants. The bad news is some of those facilities make key ingredients in conventional floor finish and floor finish strippers. We talk about what your alternatives are instead of strip and re-coats.


Jancast #90 Podcasting to a cleaner & healthier world.

Extreme Cleanlinesss®

In this week’s show, we focus on “Extreme Cleanlinesss®” and what that means, how if figures in the post covid era we seem to be moving into. The public is now more aware of what they think is clean and safe versus a year ago. That means as a business or places the public would go to as things open an educated public is going to expect a lot more than hand sanitizer at the door. In this week’s Jancast we give you an idea of what is required to achieve “Extreme Cleanlinesss®”

Jancast #87 Podcasting to a cleaner & healthier world. Watch out for the zombie apocalypse!

In this week’s show, we discuss the new cleaning & disinfectant process that United Airlines is promoting with a “long-lasting, antimicrobial spray”. The only problem is the label for that product says- “Antimicrobial surface protectant against odor-causing bacteria {and} {discoloration} {or}{staining}”.

We also talk about how New Zealand has shut the whole country down due to 3 Cov-2 cases and the results of that level of quarantine in the past. To close we offer cleaning tip #3 and how to look out for the zombie apocalypse.

When we started it was nearly impossible to do video because of cost and band width issues. Now we can shoot, edit and upload videos right from our phones if we want to. The Road edition marries the old with the new. We travel to the site of the show and interview the guest in a Airstream trailer we are calling “Globey”. This allows for us to visit with the guest but also get them out of their office into ours. Below are the streaming versions of all of the Road Editions, enjoy and watch out we maybe coming to you next!
