In fact, they’re so enamored with us that they could gobble us up! Well, not literally. They’re actually just interested in our dead skin cells. Indeed, up to a million of these microscopic insects (they are not parasites) enjoy the approximately 10 grams of loose matter we all leave behind in a given week; that’s about the mass of a new pencil!

Think your home or office doesn’t harbor dust mites? Think again... 

 

These little critters love spending time in certain types of furniture, bedding, and carpeting. In particular, as many as 100,000 dust mites can exist in a square yard of carpeting, fostering a potentially large source of allergens (some people are allergic to a protein in their feces). This underscores the importance of proper carpet care and maintenance within the workplace as carpeting presents its own unique set of cleaning challenges. Their fibers inherently trap and collect dust, dirt - and skin cells - over time, helping to nourish a large dust mite population quite nicely.

 

Vacuuming alone is not enough to control them. This is why Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) should be your full service office cleaning service. We possess both the products and the equipment to thoroughly clean the carpeting in your facility. We believe that regular, conscientious flooring maintenance is crucial to the health of all those who enter your workplace, adding to the longevity of carpeting and many other types of flooring in your facility.

As autumn transitions into winter, people are at increased risk of slipping and falling near the entrances of buildings thanks to fallen leaves that become quite slick when wet. Shortly thereafter, snow and ice poses a significant source of injury until spring returns. Therefore, to help prevent potential medical (or legal) calamities, hiring a professional cleaning company such as Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) makes great business sense.

Your success as a building owner hinges on your ability to properly maintain a safe, clean environment for occupants and visitors. Enlisting the services of a trusted maintenance company is important. It gives you a peace of mind, knowing that an accomplished provider with janitorial and maintenance expertise maintains your building. Below are ten keys to selecting a first-rate maintenance company for a large building.
1. Industry Experience
Companies with decades of experience maintaining a wide variety of buildings are typically excellent choices. Ideally, the maintenance provider you select should possess expertise maintaining buildings that are similar to type, age, and size to the building you occupy. This industry experience allows them to quickly and efficiently maintain your property.
2. A Wide Breadth of Services
The maintenance company you choose should have the scalability to handle all of your maintenance requirements. Your building is more than just floors and walls, and a top-notch maintenance company will know this. As you evaluate potential providers, look for maintenance companies who can serve as your single source for the following services:
  • Regular cleaning
  • Routine building inspections
  • Repair work
  • Safety inspections
  • Emergency service
 
3. Top-notch Accessibility 
Predicting when maintenance issues will strike is impossible, especially in a large building. The maintenance company you select should be accessible, responsive, and prompt in delivery of emergency services. Make sure that you choose a provider who you can easily reach by phone, email, or in person when services are required.
4. The Latest Tools and Technology 
Leading maintenance companies are committed to using the latest cutting-edge technology to impeccably maintained even the largest of buildings. In addition to using the most effective cleaning tools and agents, the provider you choose should utilize the latest building maintenance software. This software assists with the following:
  • Generate a complete work order history with the touch of a button
  • Easily track maintenance schedules
  • Send alerts for upcoming service and repair visits
 
5. Keen Attention to Detail 
Maintaining a large building requires attention to detail. As you compare maintenance providers, ask to see samples of building inspection reports, work orders, and cleaning logs. You can also visit similarly sized facilities maintained by providers you are considering to view their condition and level of cleanliness personally.
6. Outstanding Customer Reviews
As you evaluate potential maintenance companies, be sure to compare the online reviews provided by current and past customers. In particular, look for reviews provided by occupants of large buildings in industries similar to yours. It is also a good idea to request references from prospective companies. 
7. A Proactive Approach
Successful building maintenance begins with a proactive approach. The best maintenance providers do more than react to problems after they occur. Top-notch maintenance providers are constantly on the lookout for building imperfections and potential safety issues. 
8. Properly Licensed and Insured 
Owners of janitorial businesses are required to meet legal and regulatory obligations before they can provide cleaning or maintenance services. Not only should the company meet these requirements, but so should their technicians. Before you hire a maintenance company, ask to see proof of the company's license and insurance. 
9. Scalability
Companies that clean and maintain large buildings should have the staffing and resources to grow alongside your facilities. Planning for the future is vital to all industries, and your maintenance company is no different. Should you decide to expand or acquire additional space, your provider should have the resources to handle additional responsibilities.
10. Excellent customer service
The maintenance company you choose should exude professionalism and dedication to superb customer service. Employees should dress properly and arrive on time to perform cleaning and repair work. Additionally, all communications between staff and building occupants should be professional.
Selecting an experienced maintenance company to care for a large building is vital to providing a secure environment for occupants. By seeking a maintenance company that exemplifies the ten qualities above, you can help ensure that your building stands the test of time. To schedule a cleaning for your large building, contact Eagle Janitorial today, at 888-730-1123.

It’s pretty obvious that windows need to be cleaned regularly in order to keep them looking their best. It also allows for the easy spotting of any chips or irregularities that may compromise the safety or strength of the window. For most business owners, it’s something that is part of their regular commercial property maintenance services provided by a commercial janitorial cleaning service such as those offered through Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ).

But how are the windows of skyscrapers - those predominantly steel & glass engineering marvels helping define the skylines of our largest cities - kept clean and shiny? 

 

Surely, one would think that in this day and age, we’d have developed specialized, fully automated window cleaning robots to clean these amazing structures… But you’d be wrong. In fact, most skyscrapers still utilize crews of real, live human beings bravely (albeit securely) draping themselves over the sides.

 

Consider that for the better part of the last 60 years, most skyscrapers have featured glass façades with windows that don’t open. Intentionally designed as such with safety, cost-effectiveness, and eventually, energy efficiency in mind, glass façade structures required architects to consider precisely where & how window washers would be able to perform their duties. 

 

Utilizing a variety of mechanisms, window washing crews and building inspectors alike are able to safely position themselves in just the right spot. This is particularly important on complex, multi-contoured buildings such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.

Whether you live in a home or own a commercial building, there is a lot more you will need to do to your floors than run them over with a mop to keep them lasting long and pristine. Many types of flooring require extra care that isn’t always disclosed by the distributor. It is best to seek out professional help to give your floors the necessary treatment to keep them from being damaged by incorrect handling.
 

A Little Bit of Cleaning Can Help Prevent Huge Problems

 
The results can be disastrous if your floors are not treated properly and regularly, regardless of the kind of flooring you have installed. Carpets can become incredibly filthy after years of use, sometimes even 4,000 times more germ-infested than a toilet seat. The best way to get rid of pesky bacteria is to conduct a deep steam clean. The more often you clean your carpets and rugs with this method the better off your carpets and your health will be. Your quality of life should drastically improve the moment you thoroughly clean your carpets.
 
There is more to your floors than your introductory costs as well. Vinyl tile may be less expensive than other alternatives at the beginning, but it has the potential to become costly and hazardous to the foundation of your floor. It requires constant sealing, buffing, scrubbing, stripping, and coats of finish to keep the flooring from coming undone and exposing the foundation. Moreover, tile grout needs to be reapplied every 3-5 years to help maintain its waterproofing. Don’t skip any steps when maintaining your floors. Otherwise, you might end up replacing all the tile in the affected area. This becomes incredibly costly the more often it occurs. Always research the proper methods of care whenever deciding on what flooring to install in your home or business.
 
Wood floors are another common flooring option many people use, but might not know how to care for. Wooden floors absorb more moisture than any other flooring alternative and this goes beyond simple spills. The moisture in the air even affects wooden floors and this changes depending on the time of year. Winter air can cause cracks by the lack of moisture and summer air can cause wooden floors to expand. You will then be forced to replace the wood panels, which can lead to other difficulties if the same type of wood is no longer available from your distributor. The best way to combat these occurrences is to manage the humidity within your building and clean up any spills immediately. This way there will never be too much or too little moisture for the floors to absorb.
 

Knowing Who to Go to is Half the Battle

 
The best ways to keep your floors lasting in pristine condition is to have them professionally cleaned by our team at Eagle Janitorial as often as is within your budget. We offer our services every single day so we can meet your expectations and match your cleaning schedule. We even work overnight to perform floor cleaning services to keep your workplace uninterrupted. Eagle Janitorial is committed to prolonging the lifespan of your floors so you don’t have to worry about the high costs of replacing them!

Trying to maintain a large building that houses your business is already overwhelming, and trying to keep it functional can add even more stress. The key is to find quality janitorial services to maintain things.
 
Everything from maintenance, cleaning, and emergency repair should have fast availability when it's needed. While you might have a janitorial crew work during the night, you may need attention during the day as well.
 
Since you have a larger facility, it might require having your janitorial crew work in sections.
 
Setting Up Maintenance
 
For a large building, you'll have to find a janitorial service that can handle your facility's size. Before you put out bids for a maintenance service, you should measure your building. While this might sound simple, you also need to measure each type of floor surface you have on each level.
 
Doing so gives your maintenance crew a better idea in how they can handle their jobs. However, they should also inspect what kind of things are going to need the most maintenance.
 
You'll want to show them where your HVAC systems are to keep your heat and cooling systems consistently operational. Also show them any equipment you need to maintain to keep your business running optimally. Some of this might involve machinery or even equipment of a technical nature. It also involves lighting, something you may leave on 24/7.
The best plan is to allow your maintenance crew to tackle individual floors in groups. If you have dozens of floors, a crew for each floor helps save time if they work during the night.

Using Maintenance for Safety
 
No doubt one of your biggest worries in managing your large building is how safe it's going to stay.
 
A quality building maintenance crew always does routine inspections, and the details can sometimes become overwhelming to maintain safety.
Some things they'll do to prevent potential hazards include:
  • Greasing bearings or changing hydraulic fluid in industrial equipment to avoid sudden machinery breakdowns or malfunctions.
  • Checking electrical systems to assure there aren't any fire dangers.
  • Changing filters in cooling systems for more energy efficiency and to avoid overheating.
  • Inspecting doors and replacing door knobs to assure someone doesn't get accidentally locked in a room.
  • Taking a look at your floors and replacing floorboards if they show any signs of deterioration.
Cleaning Your Building
 
To keep your large building clean, your janitorial service absolutely has to clean daily. Again, this might take place during the night for the most part, though you should have cleaning crews on hand during the day if needing emergency cleanups.
Many cleaning experts note that cleaning by quadrant in a large office or space helps bring better cleaning organization.
 
Whenever you hire a janitorial company, make sure they have proper cleaning equipment to assure they get the job done efficiently and quickly. If it appears they have cheap and outdated cleaning tools, they'll possibly fall behind on duties due to equipment failures.
 
Taking On Repairs
 
Along with the maintenance inspections mentioned above, you'll want to assure your maintenance crew can take on repairs solidly.
Can they properly fix all your lighting fixtures so you won't have continual lighting issues throughout your building?
Some other things needing repair often in large buildings:
  • Bathroom fixtures, including replacing or unclogging toilets.
  • Fixing faucets that drip in your office kitchens and restrooms.
  • Repairing dry rot if you have any interior damage from leaks.
  • Roof repair as a given, but your crew should inspect it often for leakage in particular spots.
Visit us at Eagle Janitorial where we can provide these services to you for buildings of all sizes.

As we have seen all too often in the news as of late, the human mind can be “brainwashed”, that is, systematically reprogrammed to make someone adopt radically different beliefs relative to societal norms. While we’re not talking politics or religion in this case, we are referencing the environmental movement. Specifically, we are talking about how people could get “greenwashed”.

green-cleaning.jpg

 

By now, popular marketing buzzwords featuring the words green & sustainable are used quite interchangeably; however, to environmental scientists they remain separate entities. Thus, with respect to eco-friendly cleaning services, a reputable company will properly promote sustainable practices, utilize green products, and purchase the equipment necessary to make a difference for those looking to reduce their respective impact on the environment. Unfortunately, a certain amount of confusion exists regarding these concepts which can propagate a false sense of environmental responsibility, leading to the aforementioned “greenwashing” of a client. Like whitewashing, greenwashing occurs when claims of eco-friendliness and sustainability are made, but amount to little more than marketing spin designed to make customers feel good, or even pay more for, green products or services without offering any legitimate environmental benefits.

 

Green cleaning practices and sustainable facility maintenance have never been more crucial than they are now. Thankfully, Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) understands the importance of proudly offering all green janitorial services to those clients who want to do right for the environment and their employees on multiple fronts. 

 

Eagle BMJ offers a wide range of professional green cleaning services performed by trained professionals who will properly clean and care for your facility. Making the decision about who cleans your business doesn’t have to be difficult, and we’ll gladly prove it to you. Contact Eagle BMJ today at (888) 730-1123 to arrange for a FREE, no obligation, on-site consultation. Allow us to show you how we can help your facility be cleaner, greener, and more productive by doing what we do best so you can do what you do best!
