WAYNE WHITZELL, LEED®AP, BEP, GBO EXECUTIVE VP OF CORPORATE SERVICES, DFS GREEN
Past President, IFMA East Bay Programs Chair, IFMA Corporate Facilities Council
Wayne Whitzell with DFS Green has been on the front lines of this outbreak, having already disinfected hundreds of facilities in the past three weeks. Wayne and his team have consulted with leadership teams across the United States on their response to COVID-19 and have first-hand knowledge of the approaches that may be taken to mitigate the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, most FMs are unable to publicly discuss their organization’s particular efforts to combat the virus.
Wayne will offer different responses to the virus and provide FMs with the information to understand the disinfection process, which products and equipment should be used to disinfect, and how to avoid collateral issues from a PR and HR perspective.Watch Now
Welcome to DFS Green: Leading National Provider of CleanTech Services which serve to preserve & optimize interior assets.
DFS Green is a leading national provider of integrated business interior services to commercial end-users, facility and property managers, design firms, and general contractors.
Our services combine to deliver a meaningful ROI to our clients by extending the life cycles of their business interiors, thereby lowering capital expenditures, business disruptions incurred in the product replacement cycle, and design fees – all while optimizing the appearance of your interior assets and improving indoor air quality (IAQ).
In addition to the financial return on investment which our services provide, these same services also deliver and support our clients’ sustainability goals. The environmental impact of prematurely replacing interior business assets such as flooring and furniture is staggering. The quantities of water, energy, and GHGs expended in the manufacturing, shipping, and installation of these items is extremely impactful. A sustainable approach to maintaining these assets must promote best practices to optimize and extend the useful life of interior assets with green chemistries and processes.
For over 60 years DFS has been a leading national provider of services that utilize both proprietary and industry-leading processes which combine to deliver healthy, attractive, and sustainable workplaces. Our experienced and proven management team share a common goal with our trained and certified Technicians: to meet and exceed all of our clients’ expectations.
Preservation of Interior Assets
DFS services will extend the life-expectancy of our clients’ installed flooring and upholstery products, thereby producing a lower amortized cost of ownership and reducing landfill. Our holistic approach to providing environmentally responsible and sustainable workplaces is evident in our long-term commitment to exclusively utilize green chemistries and sustainable cleaning processes. DFS provides a 100% guarantee that our cleaning process and chemistry will strictly conform to each manufacturer’s maintenance and warranty specifications.
