WHAT YOUR BUSINESS SHOULD BE SCHEDULING FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER
Time To Bring Out Those Extra, Protective Mats
In many instances, in late spring, managers of commercial, industrial, condo and retail buildings remove extra carpet runners that had been added during the previous fall as a protective measure from autumn rains and winter snows. We at State Building Maintenance Limited do steam clean these extra runners in the spring before we place them in storage but NOW is the time to put these extra mats back. These extra floor-coverings help capture the moisture from rains and snows so they will not be carried further into your office, preventing damage to your office carpets and floors. These added runners also help to sluff off any granules picked up on your shoes or boots so that these tiny particles will not abrade your flooring, whether it be marble, terrazzo or vinyl. State Building Maintenance Limited will maintain these added runners throughout the winter season with a daily vacuuming, spot cleaning and steam cleaning when necessary. These extra and necessary commercial grade mats should be of a heavy weight so they do not shift about and cause problems. State Building Maintenance Limited sells, delivers and places these extra mats at a reasonable cost.
Condo Wall Washing And Carpet Cleaning
Now that school is well underway here in southern Ontario and we are into cooler weather such that children are no longer running in hallways with ice cream cones, sticky candy or fizzy drinks, occasionally spilling drinks on common area carpets and definitely with sticky fingers, touching walls, (not to say we adults are above reproach), State Building Maintenance Limited recommends a methodical clean-up of condo walls and carpeting. Marked and sticky walls are an unpleasant visual for condo owners to see in their common areas and messy walls are definitely not an inviting look for your visitors or prospective buyers. When sticky residue from summer treats is left on carpets this tackiness is not only damaging to your carpet fibres but the stickiness can adhere to condo owner’s shoes and be carried into their own residences. This is a complaint the manager/board does not want to hear about. So we at State Building Maintenance Limited suggest to all condo owners, that at this time of year, they do a wall washing as needed and a full steam cleaning of their carpets, to remove all grime, bring back their colour and refresh their scent. NOTHING LOOKS or SMELLS BETTER THAN CLEANLINESS!
Now Is The Time To Put Down Fall Fertilizer.
If your buildings have attractive, manicured lawns that have managed to survive our dry summer, it would be to your benefit to apply a good fall fertilizer followed by a deep watering. Fall fertilizers feed the roots, helping your grass to survive a harsh winter and to start your grass off with a healthy spring growth.
Added Protection for Your Floors
At this time of year we suggest that all building owners take a good look at their hard surface floors. State Building Maintenance Limited often finds, that after a summer of tracking in gravel bits, dirt, dust and even tar from roadwork, floors are damaged by these materials and lose their lustre. Heading into our normally wet fall weather and blustery winters State Building Maintenance Limited advises that at this time of year, to safeguard your floors, we lay down a coat of protective finish and if your floors, for some reason, have become badly damaged we then recommend stripping and re-sealing your floors. Spotless and glossy floors will say much to your customers and staff about your business’s work ethic. And if you would like that “wet look finish”, that WOW factor, we at State Building Maintenance Limited would be only too pleased to burnish your floors. Although a bit more expensive, burnished floors, not only glisten but burnishing creates a tougher finish. State Building Maintenance Limited is always there to offer you choices and work within your budget.
So whether you would like us to roll out your runners, clean your walls or clean your rugs/carpets, add protection to your hard surface floors or see your clean windows sparkle please call State Building Maintenance Limited, a full service Cleaning and Janitorial company, at 416-247-1290 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org WE DO IT ALL!
