Inside of a recently-cleaned facility

After what for many has felt like both the longest and shortest year of all time, a brand new year has finally arrived. No one knows for certain what 2022 has in store for all of us, but a new year always presents a prime opportunity for making a fresh start. Even if you’re not personally interested in making any resolutions, it’s important to think of ways to improve your facility so you can enjoy a successful year to come. Of course, building maintenance involves many moving parts, so it...

Most of us look forward to the holidays, but the rest of winter can be a real drag (especially in colder climates). It’s too soon to accurately predict just how severe this cold season will be on the whole, but even mild winters will take their toll on properties. Exterior concrete surfaces are especially vulnerable to the snow and cold -- despite their overall durability, these features are porous, allowing moisture to enter, freeze, and thaw within their various crevices. Without the proper ...

Preventive maintenance

When something goes wrong inside your facility, you’ll probably ask yourself whether something could have been done to prevent it. In some cases, the answer is no. For the most part, however, problems can be avoided by simply paying attention and putting the proper precautions in place -- this is the essence of proper preventive maintenance. Whereas reactive maintenance involves quickly responding to an incident, preventive maintenance aims to minimize or avert the problem entirely. As facilit...

A healthy landscape relies on functional, efficient irrigation. During winter, however, your green spaces lie dormant, getting rid of the need for regular watering. It’s not enough to merely turn off certain aspects of your irrigation system. However, you must perform a complete shutdown of all system components. Failing to properly shut down your irrigation system in time for winter can result in numerous headaches, repairs, and costly replacement jobs down the line. Let’s explore what an i...

You can’t afford to neglect your facility’s flooring. Dirty, deteriorating floors don’t just become major eyesores -- they also become health and safety hazards for employees, customers, and all other occupants. Of course, staying on top of commercial floor maintenance is often easier said than done. Certain processes require the right expertise and equipment to accomplish correctly, and not all businesses have the resources to dedicate to these important tasks day in and day out -- this i...

What’s the most important room inside your building? Is it your conference room, lobby, warehouse, main office, or something else? It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the right answer is, “your restrooms.” You might not think about your building’s bathrooms all the time, but they’re used by everyone inside your building. Moreover, restrooms are potential havens for all sorts of germs (i.e., viruses, bacteria), which is why it’s so important to keep them clean and sanitary day in a...

There’s a reason concrete floors can be found in a wide range of facilities across many industries. Concrete floors are durable, versatile, and relatively easy to maintain with the proper processes. That said, even the strongest concrete floor is susceptible to wear and tear, especially in a highly active setting. Proper commercial floor maintenance and repair are essential for keeping your concrete floors sturdy, safe, and beautiful. Beyond regular cleaning, your floors will need more thoroug...

Homes and commercial properties of all kinds require regular maintenance to maximize occupant health and safety. After all, several environmental factors threaten the stability of your facility and the well-being of everyone inside, including pests, extreme weather conditions, bacteria, and more. Water damage is a major concern for facilities, gradually eroding structural integrity and allowing fungi such as mold and mildew to thrive. Most of us know that mold doesn’t belong inside homes and b...

The world has learned many lessons from this ongoing pandemic, and we’re bound to learn many more by the time we’ve gotten past it. One of the biggest takeaways over the past year and a half would be the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ), which largely relies on efficient ventilation and air filtration. Cleaner indoor air results in healthier occupants across the board, reducing the presence of allergens like dust and pollen, preventing the growth of mold and other fungi, and mitigating...

Your school’s gymnasium floors must be in proper shape to endure high levels of activity and keep students, staff, and guests safe at all times. Stripping and waxing your gym floors about every 12-18 months (or as needed) protects them from abrasions, spills, discoloration, and more while providing a smooth, slip-resistant, easy to clean surface for everyone to enjoy. Of course, any form of commercial floor maintenance takes time and inevitably interferes with a room’s standard operations --...
