Week in Review: April 21st - 25th

Mitch Brunette: Director of Operations:

I’m quite pleased to have the opportunity to welcome what finally feels like an official beginning to spring!  This last week with a bit of rain and storms, followed by sun and 50-60 degrees has been excellent-- Couldn’t ask for anything better!
We’ve been happy to put the snow removal invoices behind us for the winter and make a major focus adjustment onto spring projects.  I’ve seen lots of work getting setup across the board for exterior and interior window washing, strip and wax work, and carpet cleaning!  We appreciate the work from our clients and always look forward to seeing the results in their facilities, and the overall warmer feel and positive introduction to their buildings for their clients and employees!
As spring shifts into summer we will be handling several medical facilities for their strip and wax work and full carpet cleanings, this is a large project that we are entrusted with and takes a lot of dedication from our wax crews all the way up to our site managers and myself to help ensure we get it accomplished in a timely fashion and ensure excellent results.
Aside from the traditional indoor cleaning projects that get done to remove the mess of winter, there are some outdoor ones as well that keep leftover winter mess from coming inside.  We’ve been busy providing parking lot sweeping, line striping and asphalt quotes to get clients lots in top shape!  Pressure washing is another busy item trying to clean the first couple hundred feet of sidewalks, dumpster areas, and rust on the sides of buildings that have roof runoffs or a leaky faucet.
In the last 10-12 weeks of winter I spent a lot of time at the heated driving range on the weekends with my golf coach trying to sharpen up my golf game and have been very pleased with the results.  I was so antsy to get out and play that I did make it out twice while we had the brief week of nice weather, and then again about a week ago in 34 degrees!  Aside from golfing outside of work, Liz and I are enjoying time out on the deck, raking leaves, organizing sticks and firewood out in the yard to be ready to enjoy every bit of the summer!
