The holiday shopping season is now upon us. And while this annual occurrence won’t look quite like it has in previous years due to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, business owners must still prepare for the ensuing boost in foot traffic.

Whether it’s a blizzard, tropical storm, hurricane, earthquake, tornado, etc., it’s no secret that most natural disasters make a mess. And while the severity and nature of this mess will depend on the location, strength, and type of event, even mild to moderate natural disasters can have a major impact on a facility’s operations and structural integrity. Moisture tends to rear its head following any type of natural disaster, due to broken pipes, flooding, melted ice, shifts in the ground, ...

As concerns about the global climate accelerate, more and more businesses are seeking ways to minimize their negative impact on the environment.

The COVID-19 pandemic not only resulted in mass job loss and temporary shutdowns of in-person workplaces -- it also poked a major hole in consumer confidence. While many retail stores (those that survived, anyway) are open once again, most aren’t able to operate at maximum capacity, and plenty of customers don’t yet feel comfortable shopping like they used to. And now with the year’s biggest shopp...

In the beginning months of the COVID-19 pandemic, some prominent voices expressed optimism about the virus’ trajectory, projecting that life might get back to normal in the early to mid-summer. While U.S. case numbers did begin to decline during the summer, recent data has shown a major spike in the spread of this disease. And as temperatures continue to drop, people will begin to gather indoors, increasing the risk and rate of transmission. To make matters worse, this escalation in COVID-19 c...

Indeed, cleaning your property in a thorough and efficient manner is key to maintaining the integrity and safety of your build...

Contractor conducting infrared inspection

The human eye can only see so much. Though the electromagnetic spectrum is vast, we only see what we dub “visible light,” radiation (energy) with wavelengths that fall between 390 and 700 nanometers (nm). Above this threshold lies infrared light (between 700 nm and 1 millimeter), which is felt (in the form of heat) but generally unseen by humans without the aid of specific tools, such as filtered goggles and thermography. While most circumstances don’t call for the need to see beyond the v...
