Is your maintenance department and personnel properly trained to use all of the equipment they have access to? If not, or you are not sure, now is the time to be sure. With high turnover, it’s easy to end up with personnel who don’t have an ideal level of experience or training.

Posted by on Nov 20, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Most commercial floor strippers come with weights. These weights are applied based on the type of floor surface, how much wax may have built up over time, and other conditions. Adding more weight could certainly help it seem as though the stripping is going faster, but it comes with a catch. It could cause damage to the floor surface. The older a machine is, the lower quality it is, the riskier this move will be. Remember, when you add weight or push down on something that is intended to strip or sand surfaces down, it’s going to do this...

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

My company started out small, but as we became successful, we had to find a larger space. Recently, we moved into a space that can handle 50 employees with cubicles, private offices, a conference area, a breakroom, and much more. It felt great to have this kind of growth, but I hadn’t been anticipating some of the other responsibilities that came with it.
