As a facility manager, asset preservation is high on your list of priorities. You’re also responsible for hiring the companies that will care for the building assets, such as heating and air conditioning contractors and janitorial companies. When repairs are required, it’s your job to see that they’re done in a timely and cost-effective manner. You assess damage, determining if it’s done by the tenant or normal wear and tear. All of these duties relate directly to the preservation of the commercial building and its assets. Some of those assets include the hard surface flooring, carpeting and woodwork. The assets within […]

Dirty Restrooms

Have you ever changed your opinion of a business establishment because of their dirty restrooms? If the bathrooms are filthy, imagine the griminess of the areas that the public doesn’t see! This is particularly off-putting in restaurants. Dirty restrooms hint that the kitchen in which the food is prepared is less than sanitary. Take a moment and think about the restrooms in your place of business. Do they reflect well on your business, or do they discourage visitors from coming back again, potentially spreading the word about their negative experience to colleagues, friends and family or even on social media? Maintaining […]

Nationwide cleaning company

You want the cleaning company that will best suit your facility; does that mean you should use a nationwide cleaning company? Well, that depends on your needs. If your company is strictly local, and you have no plans for branching out beyond your current city or state, then a local cleaning company would be a good fit. Or, if you’ve got a few locations within a metro area, it’s unlikely that a national cleaning company will be required. You might not even need to engage the services of a national company if your organization serves a certain region, covering 3 […]

Customer Service by Proactive Cleaning Companies

While a business should ensure that their customers are happy with their product or service, it shouldn’t have to happen after the customers have complained. A proactive approach to customer service by your cleaning company can reduce or eliminate those uncomfortable (and sometimes downright unpleasant) complaint calls you have to make. It’s about anticipating your needs and meeting them, ensuring that you, the customer, are satisfied with the service you receive. Proactive Customer Service vs. […]

Is ice melt wreaking havoc on your floors?

Does the sight of new-fallen snow leave you cold as you imagine the state of your office floors once people start to track it (and the ice melt on top of it) onto your flooring?

Of course, everyone wants to make their sidewalks and parking lots as safe as possible for their employees and visitors. Ice melt products such as rock salt have been proven to be the most economical and most […]

Is poor office cleaning making you sick?

Cold and flu season is here, and it’s more than just an inconvenience for workplaces across the country. A combination of poor hand hygiene and ineffective office cleaning can create a crisis in any office setting. Employees come to the office even though they’re sick and people carrying germs visit the office; sickness might feel like it’s unavoidable for the average American worker. Additionally, children bring home germs from school, spreading sickness to the entire family, including the adults who then take the germs to work with them. It’s estimated that lost productive time in the U.S. alone will cost […]
