- How your Office Equipment can Last Longer February 8, 2017
A lot of people spend a good portion of their time inside an office workspace. This work place is crucial for productivity and collaboration in order to complete necessary tasks. Keeping this space clean offers several positive benefits including employee productivity, customer satisfaction and happiness. One aspect that is just as important is the increased longevity of your office equipment. How does cleanliness help your office furniture and equipment?
Maintaining a clean environment within the office space helps with the idea of being careful with office equipment. This means employees will take greater care of the objects around them to ensure a clean look is kept throughout the workspace. This leads to the correct use and treatment of office equipment, which ultimately can extend its usability. Things around the office accumulate dust the more they are used. Think about your keyboards, your desks, or drawers, etc.
We know the importance of clean office equipment and exactly how they should be handled. Whether it’s computers, power bars, printers, telephones, screens, copiers, etc. the proper care needs to be taken in order for them to last longer and work as they are supposed to. Keeping them clean and using them conscientiously, especially with delicate electronics, will benefit you in the long run. Everything in your office is valuable in its own right, that’s why taking the steps to ensure your office equipment and appliances stay cleaned is a good choice. By choosing the complete janitorial & office cleaners, you can be sure that these equipment pieces will last like they are supposed to.

- Beat the Cold with a Cleaner Office November 16, 2016
We all know that once the winter season approaches… it can only mean one thing: the cold or flu comes with it. As temperatures drop, people become more susceptible to cold and flu viruses. How can you and your coworkers maintain a clean and healthy working area while the flu season is at its peak? We thought it would be a good idea to create go through some basics. You can always do your best to ensure that your surroundings are germ free.
Firstly, there are many communal areas in a workplace such as the boardroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, etc. Keeping these areas as germ free as possible will ensure all employees a much better work experience as the chances to contract sickness will be lowered. Now it is common practice to wash hands after using the bathroom, but often times that does not happen while using common appliances around the office. These include coffee machines, microwaves, keyboards, etc. These appliances are common places for germs to grow and accumulate the longer they remain unkept. The more people that use these appliances on a daily basis, the more chances there are of contracting an illness. Keeping disinfectant wipes or hand sanitizer handy would be a great start in combating against sickness and germs. You and your coworkers owe it to each other to be considerate and work together to keep the office cleaner. Although being sanitary in the office helps, there are other options that can benefit you.
Another plan of action would be to take advantage of the Commercial Janitorial & Office Cleaning Services you have available to you.

- Keeping your Warehouse Clean October 14, 2016
Most times the office warehouse can be forgotten. This eventually leads to an unorganized workspace where objects and debris get in the way of work tasks. Regular maintenance and cleanliness in warehouse spaces is just as, if not more, important than a spotless office. This is the area where all your goods are housed or stored until they are needed. Trying to manage all your inventory can be a challenge, but it makes for an easier space to keep track of. All the tools that are kept in warehouses promote the build up of dust, germs and grim and if the area is left uncleaned, there could be health risks.
A quick way to keep your warehouse cleaner and more organized is to create neatly organized storage spaces where your product can be shelved. Usually this space is free from the main traffic area, yet easily accessible when needed. Designated spaces allow for a tidy warehouse with less clutter.
The floors can be the worst part to keep orderly if not maintained regularly. Without proper maintenance, debris can begin to accumulate and once things get to a certain point, it becomes rather difficult to go back to a clean looking warehouse space. Make sure to remove wet, oily or dusty messes so that any slipping risks are eliminated. The last thing that you want to happen is to have an injury occur. The best practice to a well maintained storage warehouse is developing a schedule; one that is easy to follow.
With these basic reminders, we hope you see how important it is to stay cleanly, even in the office warehouse. If keeping your warehouse tidy is not something you can add into your daily routine, we would suggest looking for a qualified janitorial cleaning service. Here at New Look Maintenance our service is of the highest quality and with over 30 years in the business, we know exactly how to help. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

- 3 Telltale Signs that Your Cleaning Company is a Keeper June 23, 2016
Selecting a cleaning company that is a match for your business’s needs may sound easy enough in theory, but in reality there is an excess number of companies to choose from. Even when you’ve found a cleaning company to hire, there is no telling for how long you will be satisfied with your choice, and one does not want to waste time shopping for new cleaners. Here is a list of signs that you have hired a quality cleaning service:
1. Length of Time in Business
With all the competition out there, those who can stand among the top of the pack year after year must demonstrate an ability to consistently satisfy and surpass their client’s needs. Veteran companies know that there are plenty of others who could take their place and work hard to maintain a company’s trust.
2. Dependability and Thoroughness
Can you rely on your cleaning company to be punctual every time? Can you depend on them to clean every desk, door handle, and every square inch of carpet? A good cleaning company understands that their services need to adhere to the agreed schedule and to not underperform in any of their tasks. The spotless quality cleaning you receive the first time should happen every single time.
3. Staff, Equipment and Qualifications
It goes without saying; you want the cleaning crew you hire to be highly trained and thorough in work. One would also want them to be using the best, environmentally friendly cleaning agents and equipment on the market. A cleaning service that cares about the integrity of their business must be insured under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and one should never hesitate to ask for a Clearance Certificate. A cleaning company that takes responsibility for its employees and clients show the steps they are willing to take to earn your trust.
With over 30 years of experience, we at New Look Maintenance Inc. are a prime choice as your go-to cleaning service. Our employees are extensively trained, with many years of experience, and look forward to providing you the quality service you deserve. We are not satisfied with doing a job that is just “good enough”. Our staff guarantees your satisfaction and looks forward to exceeding your standards.

- Why You Want to Maintain a Clean Business Image May 9, 2016
Image is a crucial component for success and the best way to project a positive image is to run your business in a way that displays integrity. However image is not just about superior business practices, but also good first impressions. Whether the first impression is good or bad, it will spread like wildfire through word of mouth, but more importantly, it will spread through online activity where it can be seen by anyone. Clearly, the stakes have never been higher to maintain the ideal image.
When potential clients come into your place of business, you don’t want them to notice sticky or stained floors, dusty desks and smudged windows. If clients see that a business does not take care of itself, what faith can they have in your business being able to take care of their needs?

Having a clean and sparkling office evokes greater pride in your employees and is always appreciated.

- The Benefits of a Clean Office February 25, 2016
An average worker will spend roughly 40 hours a week at work. With so much time spent in the office every week, a work setting that inspires productivity should be at the forefront of any business strategy. One way to drive that productivity is to have a clean and organized office space. A lack of cleanliness becomes a distraction to workers, and has been linked to their ability to learn and be productive in their job tasks. A spotless office is a sure way to keep your workers focused and on point.
In addition, a clean office is a healthy office, and removing all the dirt and grime will help stop the spread of office germs. With so many people interacting in common areas within the office, it’s easy for employees to get sick, resulting in sick days being taken. A decreased workforce means a loss of productivity and money.
A clean office is not just for your employees, but also for visitors. A clean business is one that draws in people and makes them feel welcome. A disorganized office space may leave visitors with a bad impression and could negatively affect your business’s reputation.
There are only benefits to improving the cleanliness of your office, but tasking your employees to do all the work is itself a drain on time and resources that could be better put to use on job appropriate tasks.
This is where hiring a professional cleaning service becomes one of the best decisions you can make. New Look Maintenance offers a full range of janitorial services, and with over 30 years of experience, we have expert staff and equipment to meet your every need. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

- Things to Consider when Hiring a Cleaning Company January 20, 2016
In a professional setting, maintaining a clean and orderly working space is crucial to good first impressions, so choosing the right commercial janitorial services is an important decision to make. Given that it’s your premises, it can also be a personal decision, which is why you need to hold the company to a high standard. Here’s a list to consider when choosing which company to hire:
1. Check reviews
Look online at the various cleaning services offered in your area, and check for online reviews to get a sense of the professionalism of the company in question. Businesses will often go through multiple different office cleaning services so pay special attention to their reviews, as that usually leads to referrals towards a specific company.
2. Ask how long they have been in business
Generally, companies that have been around longer tend to be the better choice. That’s not to say younger companies offer inferior services, but veteran companies have been around long enough to gain the necessary experience to adjust their methods accordingly so that they become more efficient and profitable for their owners. Customer satisfaction is critical to veteran companies because once an image has been tarnished, it’s difficult to re-establish that reputation.
3. Do they have proper insurance?
If any damage should occur to your property or possessions during the cleaning process, the company’s liability insurance will cover you for your losses. Being a bonded and insured company goes a long way to showing customers the steps they are willing to take to protect you and their business.
The cleaning services company must also be covered under Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and it is in your best interest to ask for a Clearance Certificate. Should any of the cleaning personnel be injured while at your premises, your company could be liable if the cleaning services company has not provided that coverage for its employees.
Before the cleaning company gives you a quote, a representative should stop by your premise and walk around to get an idea of the work to be done. Prices are based on the amount of work required, square footage of the location, and the frequency of the services needed.
5. The services they provide
Make sure that the cleaning company that you hire provides the full list of services you require, as some companies will not, and many are specialized only for certain areas of cleaning. You may also want to confirm that the company will provide their own cleaning materials and if it’s a priority, that their products and methods are environmentally friendly. To have the most effective results, make sure to have a scheduled maintenance, either daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or yearly.
With over 30 years of expertise, New Look Maintenance Inc. has the experience and industry level equipment to keep your business up to your high standards. Along with our janitorial and office cleaning services, we also provide floor, window and carpet maintenance to keep your business looking immaculate. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
