Cleaning Up So You Can Fly Comfortably: The Tri-Cities Airport Story

- Tuesday, September 08, 2015
What happens when the Tri-Cities Airport undergoes a large-scale renovation and modernization project? Things get dusty, and things get dirty. But not to worry, the post-construction cleanup crew at Dura-Shine Clean will be there to ensure the airport is sparkling clean for its big reveal and ribbon cutting!

There are three project phases. Phase I includes renovation and upgrades to the rental car, baggage claim and restroom areas of the airport. In addition, construction of a new screening lane and boarding concourse will occur. Future phases will include the expansion of dining options, amenities, terminals, and additional seating. The third and final phase will conclude in the opening of the new concourse.

According to the Port of Pasco when the modernization project is done, passenger traveling through the Tri-Cities Airport will experience an air terminal complete with state-of-the-art amenities, created to accommodate the growth of the Tri-Cities. When the $41.9 million project is complete in January 2017, the airport will be set to serve the growing region for 20-plus years.

We’re so excited to be involved in the cleanup of the Tri-Cities Airport modernization project, which signals economic growth and expansion in tourism and travel for the Tri-Cities. The terminal expansion and modernization project for the airport is an exciting milestone for the growth of the Tri-Cities.

Dura-Shine Returning to Pasco

- Thursday, March 15, 2012

Dura-Shine Returning to Pasco 

The Martinez family has profited from dirt, smudges and toilet bowl rings. 

Dura-Shine Clean was founded in 1991 by Carlos Martinez and his mother, Concepcion. Now, the cleaning company has 60 employees, a fleet of vans and clients from Walla Walla to Yakima, the Tri-Cities to Moses Lake and Wenatchee. Believe it or not, we just wanted to make some extra cash,” Carlos said. “We asked each other, ‘What can we do to make some money?’ and thought, ‘Let’s clean some offices.’ 

” They went to work for a cleaning company and found their idea of clean didn’t match the firm’s. We looked around, found videos, books and talked to people in the industry,” he said. “We found some great mentors and friends in the industry to help us. It’s truly amazing how far we’ve come.” 

On Wednesday, the Martinez family took another step and broke ground on a new $700,000 facility at 6216 W. Court St. in Pasco. When finished — the target is July 1 — it will replace Dura-Shine Clean’s facility near the Richland Airport. The Othello office, run by Concepcion Martinez, will remain open. The new Pasco building will be 3,500 square feet, just as the Richland location, but it will feature 2,500 square feet of office space, more than twice their leased space in Richland. It’s pretty tight,” Carlos said. “It will be nice to have our own facility and our own layout. With one acre to work with, we’ve laid out the building to allow for future growth. If we want to, we can add offices in the back end and lease them out. But first, we’ll take care of ourselves, our needs.” The Martinez family is confident of Dura-Shine Clean’s growth. 

They opened their second office in Pasco in 2004, moved it to Richland three years later and look forward to returning to Pasco. Everyone needs to be clean, to work in a healthy environment,” he said. “We’ve worked with our clients to help them save some money. We’re experts in our industry and can offer options for keeping a clean facility and save a bit of money, too.” One way is by taking advantage of new cleaning technology. Dura-Shine Clean workers used to use upright, filter vacuums that puffed out a cloud of dust every time they were turned on. 

They now use backpack vacuums with HEPA filters that allow workers to clean more square feet per hour and don’t blow dust at start up. Dust-trapping microfiber cloths have replaced feather dusters, which simply moved dirt. The cloths mean dusting needs to be done only twice a week instead of every day, Carlos said.

By using this new technology, we’re able to clean better and more quickly than we did 20 years ago,” he said. Dura-Shine Clean offers a variety of services including both commercial and construction cleaning, floor and carpet care, janitorial services and event cleaning. They also offer house-cleaning services in the Tri-Cities. If it’s dirty, we can probably clean it,” he said.

Dura-Shine Clean Breaks Ground on New Pasco Headquarters

- Sunday, February 05, 2012

Dura-Shine Clean Breaks Ground on New Pasco 

Headquarters Officials from the Pasco Chamber of Commerce and the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce helped Dura-Shine Clean founders Concepcion Martinez and Carlos Martinez break ground in February on the company's new facility on Court Street in Pasco. 

Concepcion Martinez and her sons, Carlos and Tino, started Dura-Shine Clean in 1993 in Othello to earn some extra cash. Through hard work, they have grown that side business into one of the most successful commercial and residential cleaning companies in the Mid-Columbia. 

Now the company has started construction on a new 6,000-sq.-ft. facility in Pasco. General contractor Romm Construction will start building the facility at 2616 W. Court St. this month and Carlos Martinez said he anticipates moving in this summer. The new facility will replace the company’s current Tri-Cities’ offices at the Richland Airport. When we first opened our Tri-Cities office in 2004 it was near (the new facility’s location),” said Martinez. At that time, the company only had about a dozen employees. Now it boasts a staff of 46 that cleans about 5 million square feet of commercial space in the Tri-Cities. 

Despite the growth, Martinez said the company maintains its family roots. We are still a small, family-owned business,” he said. “We are very community-oriented and that has contributed to our success. The Martinez matriarch, Concepcion Martinez, still runs the original Othello office, which will remain even after the new facility is complete. And Carlos and his brothers work in the company’s Tri-Cities offices, which does a large amount of commercial and industrial cleaning. 

Martinez said the company has contracts with Toyota of Tri-Cities, HAPO Community Credit Union, REC Silicon, Columbia Basin Health, and last year obtained the cleaning contract for the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo. The company offers commercial, construction and residential cleaning, janitorial services, event cleaning and carpet care.
