Hallways of an educational facility dorm

We’re rapidly approaching the end of another school year – a year that’s seen the return of in-person instruction, social gatherings, and dorm life for many. As on-campus students start to pack their things for the summer, your school’s maintenance staff must prepare to deeply clean these rooms so they’re in great shape for new residents in just a few months.

Students throwing up their graduation caps

Dumbells on a gymnasium floor

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 ...

Construction on a bathroom floor

The state of your business’ bathrooms has a bigger impact on your bottom line than you might realize. At the very least, worn down, dirty bathrooms are an eyesore, reducing employee morale and tarnishing your reputation.

And, of course, a poorly maintained bathroom is a health and safety hazard, allowing germs to spread and mold to form over time. Thus, committing to a bathroom restoration project is a ...

List of quality assurance indicators

Janitorial providers have an enormous responsibility. These services keep a facility beautiful, safe, sanitary, secure, and operational via a wide range of tasks (i.e., cleaning, inspections, repairs, etc.). Of course, proper facility maintenance isn’t just about the quantity and frequency of these tasks, but also their quality. It doesn’t matter how many people you employ for janitorial services if they fail to perform their duties properly every time. The best janitorial companies include ...
