Chances are, your Super Bowl party left a small mountain of mess to clean up before you could call it a night. Cups, plates, napkins, bottles, and cans – not to mention the leftovers – it all adds up. At the site of the big game itself, north of 400 tons of trash are generated over the entire weekend!
Your living room may be nowhere near the size of Houston’s N.R.G. Stadium, but the concept is the same. More people means more trash, and more wear and tear. Same can be said for today’s office buildings and facilities. With our modern workday, the old 9-to-5 isn’t always an option. And as more and more offices move toward open, practically all-hours environments, they’re even more susceptible to wear, which means even fewer opportunities for the downtime that’s required to keep a facility clean and well-maintained.
For a building supervisor or facilities manager, that means reconsidering cleaning, maintenance, and repair schedules to accommodate workflow and workplace traffic trends.
Hours: You know your facilities workflow best. When will operations be least affected by maintenance and repair?
Frequency: More traffic means more wear, more damage, more trash, etc. Your maintenance and repair schedule should reflect the uptick in traffic and hours.
Budget: It’s most often cheaper to maintain and repair rather than replace. Same applies to surfaces handled by Stone Building Services. Is your budget in line with your additional hours?
Communication: If hours of operation, number of employees, or other workplace trends are changing in your facility, let’s talk! Stone Building Services is ready to help you plan a maintenance contract that works best for you and your facility.
