interior new lab room

Laboratories are used across many industries for different purposes. One thing all labs have in common, however, is that they all must maintain a controlled environment for proper experimentation, observation, and safety. In any facility, floors can quickly harbor countless germs and contaminants -- for a lab to function properly, special attention must be paid to its floors, both in terms of its construction and properties.What to Look for in Laboratory FloorsBefore delving into the various flo...

The flooring you select for your athletic facility is foundational for its ongoing success. No amount of high-quality equipment or services can make up for worn down, uncomfortable, and/or unsafe floors. Different gyms may be outfitted with different types of flooring, but rubber remains the most common choice for more reasons than one. Indeed, rubber floors suit gym settings perhaps better than any other type of flooring. Let’s explore in more detail why you should consider updating your gym ...

For schools and various other institutions, summertime offers a seasonal reprieve, making this the perfect time to invest in some deep cleaning for your facility. If your facility features carpeting, cleaning these soft, porous surfaces should be a top priority, as they can carry a host of germs and bacteria. Ideally, you should deep clean your commercial carpeting via shampooing (and other methods) every few months to promote the health and safety of everyone inside and maintain the integrity a...

Healthcare facilities must constantly keep the well-being of their patients and employees top of mind. To ensure the best possible care, these facilities periodically require renovation, expansion, repair, and other types of construction. At the same time, healthcare facilities must remain as clean and sterile as possible. These two crucial duties naturally conflict with one another -- after all, construction projects inherently make messes and produce plenty of dust and debris. As such, protect...

Health inspector looking at kitchen commercial floor

Food safety must be taken seriously at every level. If you own or manage a restaurant, taking a shortcut here or there can result in serious illness/injury, a tarnished reputation, severe legal penalties, and even a complete shutdown. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updates its Food Code every four years to set guidelines for local governments and those in the food industry to follow. This document includes recommendations on matters like standards for food storage and facility clean...

At first glance, it might not seem like floors have much of an impact on learning outcomes. However, schools that lack sturdy, safe, aesthetically pleasing floors don’t do their students or faculty any favors. At best, worn down floors can become major distractions -- at worst, they’re serious safety hazards. Choosing the right type of flooring for your facility can truly make a difference. Let’s explore why commercial vinyl flooring, in particular, is a perfect fit for all kinds of educat...

Commercial floor in kitchen of a hospital

When you think of a hospital, your mind likely turns to hallways, patient rooms, lobbies, operating rooms, and so on -- the kitchen is probably the last thing on your mind. However, hospital kitchens play a crucial role in a facility’s reputation and patient satisfaction. Every patient must have access to quality food during their stay, and visitors benefit from having a place to eat on campus, too. If you manage a hospital, you can’t afford to ignore what goes on in your kitchen. Your hospi...

Healthcare facilities must adhere to the highest cleanliness standards to remain compliant with governmental regulations and keep patients, staff, and guests safe. While the main priority in this regard should be to keep interior rooms clean and sanitary, the exterior surfaces of healthcare buildings require attention, too. Performing periodic pressure washing on sidewalks, walkways, siding, gutters, etc., not only keeps your healthcare facility looking fresh but also protects it from deteriorat...

Every restaurant needs a steady supply of water to prepare food, clean appliances, and keep everyone hydrated. As vital as water is, however, it can also wreak havoc on your restaurant if not properly controlled. When moisture invades your facility, it can create health and safety hazards, encourage mold and mildew to thrive, deteriorate your surfaces, and more. While moisture intrusion is a threat all year long, the summer months tend to ratchet up this risk due to high humidity levels, heavy r...

Large pothole in a parking lot

The amount of foot traffic your business receives is strongly correlated with the condition of your parking lot. Without a clean, level, visible, and accessible parking lot, you can’t expect customers to line up outside your door. A pristine parking lot encourages people to enter your building and creates a strong first impression. As such, your property maintenance services should pay just as much attention to your parking lot as they do any other aspect of your facility, inside and out. Let...
