We all know what the Number 1  question asked by visitors is.  No one really notices when facilities are clean and goods are stocked. But we all notice and are ready to complain when they aren’t. There’s a psychology to clean.  Visitors are less likely to drop trash on the ground if there’s no other litter in sight.

This isn’t a no-brainer job, though. You’re dealing with chemicals; there’s health hazards you’re faced with on a daily basis; you’re cleaning and working around valuable historic items; you’re the first one to notice when the toilets aren’t flushing. And we’re going to provide you with some resources to do your job even better than you already do.

The Northeast Museum Services Center has a variety of videos on cleaning different materials available on YouTube
