Week In Review: April 25th - 29th

Mitch Brunette: Director of Operations

Happy Spring to all, even though it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster so far!  It seems like the mornings and evenings have been cooler lately, and the mid-day hasn’t been quite as hot as it was for a couple weeks there in March.  A weird start to the year, but we’ll take it! 

There is a lot going on in our territory, around the entire metro, as we support existing clients and bring aboard new ones.  These last few weeks, we started up a large group of medical facilities that required 10-12 of us out on the weekend, helping kick off the cleaning with our new crews!  Jarrad had mentioned it a bit last week, but now it’s mostly behind us.  We’ve started cleaning these new locations, fine-tuned the crews, and established good relationships with our new client base.  Not a bad way to kick off Q2!

As for supporting our existing clients, you probably hear a lot from us in the spring time, as we discuss projects, spring cleaning, and organization of these maintenance programs.  It’s that time and we are in full swing!  Every day, it seems that I have someone reaching out for some new project to be priced or considered, new types of services being offered, and old ones being rescheduled to keep our buildings in order. 

Outside the office, I’ve been very busy turning my jungle of a backyard into a much better view!  I’ve been pulling buck thorn, small trees that don’t belong, weeds, old stumps, and exposing black dirt that needs some wood-like grasses planted.  I’m on the hunt for the perfect seed to take on the space and require minimal maintenance.  Aside from that, I’ve been moving furniture around the house, rearranging rooms, painting and getting things in order for an eventful summer!  Have a great spring everyone, and please reach out if you need any quotes or ideas for your property!
