These maintenance services come at a cost, of course, and no one would blame you for finding every way to reduce your rates.

Even during a mild winter, a major storm could be lying in wait. If you own or operate a business, it’s important to prepare for whatever winter weather might come your way.

There are many reasons to carpet your office floors. Carpeted floors offer near-infinite design and color possibilities, reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls, and help protect the underlying floor from impact, moisture, and other threats. Still, carpeting is often high-maintenance, especially if your workplace is relatively busy. If you don’t stay on top of this key part of building maintenance, it won’t be long until your carpet shows its age and requires repairs. Let’s discuss the ...

The events of 2020 -- namely the COVID-19 pandemic -- devastated communities of all kinds across the U.S. and the world, including religious congregations.

Fresh pavement in a parking lot

When it comes to improving your place of business, the first things that come to mind are typically related to building maintenance, such as cleaning, painting, reorganizing, making repairs, and so on.

There is no greater liability than a hazardous workplace. If you can’t ensure the safety of your employees, guests, and customers, your business will struggle to survive. For one thing, an unsafe workplace is anything but productive.
