Trends in Office Cleaning

Permalink 05/27/16 13:30, by admin, Categories: Company News

In the cleaning and maintenance industry, as in other industries, technology keeps bringing new products and methods to the marketplace which benefit business owners and managers.

Over time, feedback from customers (and their own staff) tells janitorial services what they like, what works and what is cost effective. In 2016 cleaning has become specialized and more scientific, using specific techniques for each area cleaned.

Green Cleaning (Leeds) - Environmentally friendly products and cleaning methods continue to be popular for a variety of reasons. Green products are cost effective to use in place of harsher chemical cleaning agents.

Ease of Use - Todays products and supplies are chosen partially for ease of use, so more time can be spent on the cleaning rather than limitations of the product. And these products provide better results.

High Quality & Quality Control - The evidence of a good job is how clean everything is, and so part of todays regimen is more focused than ever on quality control checks to make sure each detail is addressed completely.

Better Dry Cleaning - With water costs and shortages, more janitorial firms are using state-of-the-art dry cleaning tools and methods (cleaning, dusting, etc. without the use of water).

Security and Background Checks - Today's cleaning staff are checked more thoroughly than years past so the clients can relax and have confidence that the people in their office have been vetted and approved.

Save Money on Your Office Electric Bill

Permalink 05/27/16 13:08, by admin, Categories: Company News

In warmer climates, office buildings reach their peak electricity use during summer months. As your office building uses more electricity your overhead goes up. Smart office managers are continually looking for ways to lower fixed overhead costs.

Here are some items which office managers or owners find are useful in improving their energy savings.

Use LED Bulbs -
Replace lighting with energy-saving bulbs. Todays modern LEDs use a fraction of the amperage which even ENERGY STAR or CFL bulbs use. Depending on your lighting fixtures, there are several choices to cut down on this dramatically.

Take Control of the Cool - Keep the thermostat a bit higher, and install a programmable thermostat. By automatically turning on and off the A/C units, a manager can keep the control of the cost, rather than individuals switching the units off and on.

Use Tinting - Install window shades or tinting when its hot. Tinting of the right filter color can let in light, while keeping the heat out!

Natural lighting - Open window shades and turn off lights to use natural lighting. If you are the owner of your building invest in inexpensive skylighting where feasible to keep lighting bills low.

Maintaning Office HVAC Systems

Permalink 04/28/16 14:10, by admin, Categories: Company News

As your office building HVAC system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in the ducting, filter and the condenser that affect its efficiency.

Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose a percentage of its operating efficiency each season because of this clogging effect, it cools poorly. San Diego for instance, has the highest electric rates in the USA, so anything you can do to increase your a/c efficiency will pay off in energy savings.

Here are some things to keep in mind when using and maintaning your HVAC systems:

Don't keep changing the thermostat. Decide on the consensus temperature for the staff's comfort, and leave it there. Some businesses place a lock box over the thermostat for this reason.

Consider the use of a timer. Many of the better a/c systems come with a 7 day timer, so set it up according to the use of the building. This will not only save on electricity, it will save wear and tear on the unit.

Control radiant heat coming through the windows. Keep in mind that heat gets in via your window glass. Many companies use window tinting, to reduce the sun's effect, but you can also use blinds. And when the a/c is on, make sure windows stay closed.

Have the units regularly inspected and serviced.
Research has shown that poorly maintained HVAC systems can use up to 60% more energy!

Stay cool this summer!

Caring for Commercial Floors and Carpets

Permalink 03/29/16 14:15, by admin, Categories: Company News

One of the biggest interior investments a company can make are its floors. Commercial floors get a lot of wear and tear -- new spills and stains appear quickly, transforming that flooring from beautiful to dirty and worn.

To properly maintain your flooring use only commercial Janitorial cleaning services for this task - residential cleaners are not up to the challenge. For instance, Servitek is a nationally recognized commercial cleaning service that focuses 100% on business only accounts.

Hard surfaces
Tile concrete marble and other hard surfaces are becoming increasingly commonplace in buildings. The Servitek tile cleaning process extracts the dirt from the floors seams, removing it from deep within the pores of the grout and other hard to clean areas. Each type of flooring requires its own special cleaning process. Marble is different from granite or ceramic tile. Servi-tek's trained technicians use special tools and supplies to clean each floor type properly.

Commercial Carpet Care
Not all commercial carpet cleaning methods are created equal. There are several methods to clean and maintain commercial carpets.

Hot Water Extraction - (also known as Steam Cleaning) injects a hot water in a detergent solution deep into the carpet; suspends soils in this solution; and extracts (removes) the cleaning solution. While many other methods are considered surface cleaning, hot water extraction is deep cleaning process.

Low Moisture carpet cleaning - is the application of an encapsulating, polymer based cleaning chemical that includes brushing and grooming of the carpet pile. Low moisture cleaning offers very fast drying times. Carpets can be walked on immediately following cleaning. The system is very useful in many twenty-four hour a day operations such as hospitals and call centers.

Other - Regardless of the carpet maintenance system in place, it is important that a program is well designed, properly implemented and professionally managed.
