Freshen up this spring

So we often all talk about freshening up our homes in the spring time, maybe with a good clear out, by touching up the walls with some paint or by fixing the nagging tap that has been dripping every day throughout the winter. Often by fixing these things, we feel better and allow ourselves to get ready to enjoy the summer months without having to turn our hand to fixing or cleaning anything.

Freshen up for summer

It’s the same in business, a ‘freshen up’ in the spring can result in your customers noticing a change.  A new spring in your step, or maybe your businesses, if the step needs fixing! This attention to detail makes customers feel better about using your business as it represents how you run your business, and we all like companies that spend time on attention to detail.

What does a ‘freshen up’ involve?

The simple answer to that is as much as you want. Many companies like to give their premises a coat of paint each year, to keep it looking new and invigorated. If you have a list of works that you want completed, then now is as good a time as any to get things mended. Taps, toilets, broken mirrors, broken tiles, dirty carpet tiles, wearing flooring, chipped woodwork, stained reception desks, wobbly tables, cables tidied with floor boxes moves and lose ceiling tiles.  There is such a long list of things that may need attention…and not your attention, but our attention. We can help with all of these items and many more.

How long does a ‘freshen up’ take?

Well that depends on the list, but one thing we can guarantee is that we can work around you, evenings, weekends, nights, in phases, however you want the works completed, we will work with you to make sure this happens.

Even if you think your company looks amazing, there are many things that still need to be considered on a regular basis in terms a regular maintenance. Re lamping, is not only good practice to ensure that the lux levels in a building are correct, but energy saving bulbs can also keep costs down. We can also test water hygiene to ensure all correct procedures are in place to reduce employees risk of Legionella. Spring is a good time of year to check on Air Conditioning as it is critical in Summer and we all know how hard it is to get people out in the height of summer to take a look at a faulty air conditioning unit (unless you come to C|S|M of course!). It is also worth noting when the last time your electrical equipment was PAT tested and if your emergency lighting has been flick tested or dead tested.

How do we keep our business up to date with current legislation?

Legislations and regulations are changing all of the time and it is difficult to keep up with it all, especially if it is not your primary business, like ours!. C|S|M monitor regulations and legislation and adapt our services to ensure that we offer a one stop shop when it comes to pre planned maintenance and compliance.Carpet floor box for floor box moves in London

There are so many compliance items in a building that need to be kept up to date to ensure the safety of your employees and clients that we have compiled a list for you to check if you are fully compliant.

If you look through this list and discover that there are some places in which you are not compliant then please do not hesitate to contact us and we can develop a pre-planned maintenance programme to ensure you are always up to date in terms of building compliance.
