What are your plans for facility maintenance in 2022?




What maintenance issues did you experience in 2021?

Is one of your new year’s resolutions to be more on top of things? Did you not get everything done that you wanted to in 2021? Maybe there were facility maintenance issues holding you back from getting things done. What if we told you that you won’t have to worry about facility maintenance for an entire year. You wouldn’t have to worry about any issue your building will have, inside or out. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not. This is something you can expect with City Wide Facility Solutions’ Annual Maintenance Program.

There is a major benefit to having an annual plan for your facility. Here are a few examples of solutions that could benefit from a yearly schedule.

  • Carpet/Upholstery Care – It is recommended any carpet or cloth surface be deep cleaned at least bi-annually. A lot of dirt and debris can accumulate in a year.
  • Hard Floor Care – Surface damage, discoloration, as well as safety hazards are a few things you can expect from a lack of routine hard floor care. Make sure your hard floors are both presentable and safe year-round.
  • Commercial Cleaning and Disinfecting – Managing your cleaning and disinfecting services takes valuable time away from your day. Having a solutions company take these things off your plate can help you get back to what is most important. You need to be sure you are doing all you can to prevent the spread of bacteria and pathogens in your facility year-round. Having high-touch disinfecting, electrostatic disinfection, general disinfection, and workplace wellness programs planned ahead for the year will greatly reduce the risk of any clients and staff becoming sick. When it comes to disinfection, the best defense is a good offense. Make sure your building is well defended for the whole year, and years to come.
  • Handyman Services – A lot of things can either break or malfunction as the year progresses. Having a handyman at the ready the moment something needs attention can pay off tremendously
  • Commercial Matting – When moisture comes in contact with a hard surface, it becomes a tripping hazard. Commercial matting will help reduce the traction of moisture as well people slipping when in your building. Commercial matting also increases the lifespan of your commercial carpeting and hard floors. Having mats at your entrances allows anyone who enters to wipe the dirt and debris off their shoes. Less dirt and debris tracked in means less damage and discoloration to your flooring.
  • Lawn and Landscaping – No matter what time of year it is, the elements outside can always disrupt any outdoor decorations or furniture. You also want to make sure any plants or grass are well kept in the warmer months while also ensuring leaves are removed in the fall. Not removing your leaves can kill any grass and plants you have. Finally, you want to ensure you have proper snow removal services for your parking areas or walkways. Make sure your landscaping is well kept for all seasons.
  • Parking Lot Services – Your parking lot can be damaged both by excessive heat and extreme cold. And the amount of traffic your parking lot receives can make it look dirty if left unattended. The parking lot is one of the first parts of your facility customers sees. Make sure it always leaves a good impression.

Having your solutions planned out a year in advance is convenient and cost-effective. Many of the aforementioned services see high amounts of service requests at certain points in the year. For example, snow removal will be very popular in the winter in certain areas. Many snow removal companies will see high call volumes and will likely be booked for the rest of the season. This leaves you to find an alternative, which will either not suit your needs entirely or be outside of your desired budget. Having an AMP means you will always have the right contractor that fits your specifications and budget when you need them.

There are many more examples of services that can benefit from our AMP. One of the most notable benefits of this program is having City Wide manage the work for you. You won’t have to manage any of the contractors performing their respective services. You only need one point of contact at City Wide to represent you. They are your Facility Solutions Manager (FSM), an individual who will regularly visit you and your facility to properly maintain such a valuable asset.
