Top Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Building

Spring is the season of new opportunity. The perfect time to liven up the appearance of your facility, prepare for the summer months ahead, and get proactive with your building’s upkeep.

Rather than simply de-cluttering your premises, why not complete repair jobs and freshen up your entire building. We have compiled our top spring-cleaning tips for building owners and facilities managers as we welcome Spring.

 

1. Make it sparkle

Over Winter, wood and cement exteriors are susceptible to deterioration around main entrances, and areas with heavy foot traffic. It may be time to book a high pressure clean to remove dirt build-up, animal droppings, cobwebs, and weathering. An effective solution that can significantly enhance the exterior, making it look as good as new, is pressure washing.

CMBM’s pressure washing team keep your premises clean with external building, roofing and outside area cleaning solutions.

 

2. Keep it inviting

Now is the perfect time to get your commercial cleaning on track! With the unprecedented challenges and disruptions due to COVID-19, many businesses who closed onsite operations earlier in the year may have forgotten to rebook their cleaning & maintenance services. Ensure your premises is looking its best with regular cleaning!

 

3. Have every surface covered

When was the last time you did a walkthrough of your premises? Did you identify any hazards like slippery flooring? A cost efficient solution is GripGuard, a non-slip floor treatment designed to increase your floor’s slip resistance without altering the appearance.

CMBM are fully licensed GripGuard applicators, helping you to minimise slip incidents, keep your customers safe and prevent WHS liabilities.

 

4. Remove the damage of winter

Carpets are a breeding ground for dirt, mites, and mould thus requiring deep cleaning on an annual basis.

A commercial-grade steam clean with professional cleaning agents will effectively lift and remove any damaging bacteria. This keeps your staff clear from ingesting harmful allergens, alongside a wealth of other benefits. Get in touch for more information on CMBM’s commercial carpet cleaning and floor treatments.

 

5. Green it up

While winter takes the heaviest toll on your landscaping, Spring is the time for revitalisation.

Commercial landscaping and grounds maintenance are pivotal to establishing professionalism in an outdoor setting. CMBM look after all your outdoor landscape management needs including hardscaping, tree trimming, lawn maintenance, gardening, fertilizing, and edging.

Top 5 Benefits of Non-Slip Flooring

Non-slip flooring is a worthwhile investment for any business wanting to keep their customers and employees safe whilst reducing maintenance costs, liabilities and avoiding disruption to business operations.

According to Safe Work Australia, 23%1 of all serious workplace injury claims within the last 12 years (between 2003 – 15) were ‘fall, trips and slips’ incidents, with 56% of these injuries being caused by environmental factors, such as slippery surfaces following rainfall.

Between 2012-13 there were 6,6402 reported cases of slip incidents, with the average cost of a serious claim coming to $104,370. This makes fall, trips and slips the second highest injury claim in Australia.

CMBM are installers of GripGuard, the leading non-slip flooring solutions for businesses and residential properties around Queensland.

Benefits of Non-slip surfacing

1. No Disruption to Business

Treatment can be carried out during business hours, with the surface being safe to walk on immediately after completion.

2. No Change to Surface

GripGuard microscopically modifies the floor surface, meaning there is no visible change to the floor surface whilst grip is dramatically increased for shoes and pneumatic and solid wheel tyres.

3. Cost-Effective

Non-slip flooring saves you money as it reduces maintenance costs and mitigates potential slip or fall injuries for your employees and customers.

4. GripGuard is durable

GripGuard permanently modifies the floor surface rather than coating it, meaning it will not wear off or require special maintenance. The treatment is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and heavy traffic flow.

5. WH&S Compliance

Your duty of care to your employees and customers includes managing health and safety risks associated with slips, trips and falls by eliminating or minimising the risk ‘so far as reasonably practicable.’ Non-slip flooring provides peace of mind that you have fulfilled your responsibilies.
