We’ve all had this experience— you sit down and want to get to work, but something goes wrong. Maybe there’s a light bulb that’s flickering. Or maybe your chair is creaking every time you make the slightest movement. Whatever it is, there seems to almost always be some little thing that needs to get fixed. This is what facilities management is. It goes far beyond janitorial services to include not just cleaning, but everything you need to make sure your office has what it needs to run its best. Here are just a few of the things facilities management takes care of:
1) Cleaning Service
This is probably the first thing that comes to mind. And a clean office is a well-functioning one. Studies have shown that employee morale and productivity are much higher in tidier spaces. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, but people seem to work better in a clean environment. Naturally, professional sanitation is the centerpiece of facilities management. But cleaning services far exceed running a vacuum cleaner or emptying the trash, but essentials for office health such as sanitation and changing things like HVAC filters and more.
2) Installation Assistance
Let’s say you’ve gotten a large new monitor to use for presentations. Investments in your business like these can cost quite a bit. So you want to make sure they are installed properly. Facilities management can assist you in helping to wall mount that new screen, assemble bookcases and shelves along with other benefits such as repainting a room. You get all the experience of skilled tradespeople at a much more reasonable price.
3) Electrical and Appliances
What do you do when a critical appliance doesn’t work? From the coffee maker to wall outlets, these small details are essential for the success of your office. This is doubly important if there’s been recent storms or other problems that may be causing trouble with the electrical systems around your office. Most offices have thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment and you want to make sure they are protected from power surges and other problems. Think of facilities management as a general handyman to help fix whatever your needs from plumbing to electric sockets and more.
The best thing about facilities management is that we can work around your schedule. You can schedule cleaning times that best work for your office whether that’s in the mornings, afternoons or after hours. But likewise, we are available on demand. Let’s say you host a large corporate party and need some help cleaning up afterward. We got you covered. Or let’s say there is an accident over the weekend. We are available on-demand 24/7 to help sort out whatever your needs.
