Are Your Ducts in Order?

6/10/2019 (Permalink)

A building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC) and subsequent ducts are the key component to air quality. HVAC and duct cleanliness have a direct impact on the functionality of the equipment as well, a clean system ought to function at maximum capacity. If your system is clean and properly functioning, it should provide you with positive indoor air quality and a lower monthly cost of running your HVAC system.

You can keep your commercial ducts in a row by changing the filters within the system regularly - it is recommended to change them every 90 days. Check any connections for damage. If you can see any damage to the connections, wires, or motors then the damage needs to be repaired immediately in order to keep your HVAC system safe and properly functioning.

You should annually inspect your HVAC system and ducts to see if there is visible mold, a surplus of dust and/or debris, and rodent infestation.

Tips for Investment Properties, Are They Worth It?

Why Do You Need to Inspect Your Investment Properties?

Most investment properties are big, meaning that it is possible for their current owners to conceal all sorts of faults in order to secure a better selling price. As a result, if you are interested in a particular investment property, you should inspect both its interior and its exterior to make sure that it is worth its price.

What Are Some Common Warning Signs?

Here are some common warning signs:

  • Uneven heating and cooling in the attic could be a sign of something wrong with the insulation of the roof. As a result, get a roofer to check the roof for cracks, crevices, and other faults, while also making sure that the drainage system is running properly.
  • A musty smell combined with discoloration in humid surroundings mean that there could be mold. Not only is mold potentially dangerous for human health, but it is also a sign that there is too much moisture, which can cause a lot of materials to deteriorate.
  • The history of changes that have been made to an investment property can say a lot about its current condition. If the current owner is unwilling to divulge more than a bare minimum of information, that could be an bad sign that they are attempting to hide something.

The Pro's of Carpeting Your Business

7/27/2016 (Permalink)

When it comes to your business, even the small details count such as the flooring that you choose for your physical location. It's all about making a good impression on your customer and carpeting can do just that while being budget friendly and boasting several other advantages.

Easy to Take Care Of

You don't have to worry about only using certain cleaners and preventing scratches and damage like you do with hardwood, vinyl, or tile. Carpet just needs a routine vacuum and spot clean should there be any spills. For more challenging spills that stain, you can get a professional to clean the carpet and make it look new again.

Safety

Carpeting is safer for both your customers and your employees. If someone were to fall, the carpet will pad their fall. Carpet is also more comfortable to stand on all day, so your employees won't battle as much fatigue and soreness at the end of the day.

Many Option in Your Budget

Carpet is affordable and comes in many different blends and colors so that you can choose something that looks nice and fits your budget.

These are just some of the reasons why you should consider carpeting for your business. It's truly a smart investment.
