If you fail to prepare correctly the sealer will fail, it may fail in a very short period of time or it may last a little longer but it will inevitably will fail.

It can be as simple as a serious vacuum or a full blown clean, every nook and cranny that dirt, dust, mould, mildew or worse could be hiding. …

There are so many reasons to store and dispense chemicals some are extremely obvious and some are not. Chemical storage is the boring side of cleaning, but each and every business needs to ensure they are doing it correctly.

One critical piece of information many businesses are lacking is having the Material safety data sheets (MSDS). There are two main purposes of the material safety data sheets. These are informing workers and aiding emergency services. The MSDS will tell staff and emergency services what to do if there is a spill, fire or workplace accident. By having the information readily available precious time isn’t wasted if time is an important factor. In a fire situation providing a schedule of chemicals time isn’t wasted researching and guessing. …
