Waste Disposal Services: Why they’re Not a Rubbish Idea

Taking care of your business's needs is a job in itself. Keeping abreast of business legislation and up-to-date with health and safety, whilst keeping your staff happy and your company lucrative can be a nightmare. 

One of the stresses of running your own business is that you are legally responsible for ensuring that your company waste is being handled and disposed of in strict accordance with government legislation and specifications. It might be the last thing on your long list of priorities or projects you want to tackle, but it is an incredibly important one none the less. 

With this in mind, it is no wonder that more companies are seeking external time saving solutions and opting for the outsourcing of projects and tasks to industry specialists. Finding a company that can take some of the stress out of the day-to-day running of your business can free you up to concentrate on the things that urgently require your attention, allowing you to get back to the job that you chose to do and love doing, without wasting your time juggling all the other things that come with it. When it comes to your business's rubbish, rest assured there is a better way.

What do you think of when you think of a handyman?

When you think of a handyman, it’s easy to visualise a man in early retirement, who potters about putting up shelves or fixing sticky locks.  However, a handyman can offer so much more than this.  In fact, a company offering a handyman service could offer features such as planned and reactive maintenance, heating and air conditioning repair, installation of false ceilings, painting and decorating, and much, much more.

Services for commercial properties

The services handymen provide aren’t just limited to domestic homes, they’re also vital for large commercial properties too.  Their services can be booked either on a reactive or a planned basis, so business owners can feel rest assured that their property will be taken care of all year round.  It might also be worth checking with the company to see if they offer a 24 hour service as well, as it’s well known that leaks or electrical problems don’t just wait until between 9am and 5pm to occur.

Maximise potential space

You might need help with relocating an office, or perhaps reorganising an existing office space by installing partitions – all of these tasks can be completed by a company offering a comprehensive handyman service.  Your office could be utilised to the best of its potential simply by adding an extra desk or two to your current office, or perhaps helping to provide a private area which can be used as a meeting room.

Complete ad hoc tasks

Even if you have an in-house maintenance team, you may find that they are so busy with their day to day jobs, they’re not able to complete ad hoc tasks which would help to improve the aesthetics of your building.  A handyman could be hired to remove graffiti from public areas, or use a pressure washer to eradicate trodden in chewing gum on paths.  They could paint fences or repair damaged flooring – all of which are inexpensive tasks which can help to improve the image of your work place. 

So if you have a list of jobs which you or your maintenance team are struggling to get around to doing, or if you would feel rest assured knowing that you have a planned maintenance service in place, contact the team at Maintainabuild on 020 7231 7778 to make sure your business premises is running smoothly.

Replacing an Office Walkway with New Anti-Slip Decking

At Maintainabuild we are well equipped to carry out a wide range of maintenance, interior fit-out, refurbishment and general handy manservices throughout London. Our team are highly experienced in working on all kinds of projects, from fixing a few small issues, to complete refurbishments, indoors and outdoors. We regularly undertaken projects to renovate the outside of office properties in order to ensure all entrances, exits and walkways not only look great, but are safe and accessible for all pedestrians.

For one of our clients, we were recently asked to provide 190 metres squared of brand new anti-slip decking walkway to replace the old wooden decking. As well as working to ensure safety for all pedestrians on this risen walkway, particularly during wetter weather, we also replaced traditional screws and fixings with a hidden deck fastening system. By fastening all decking underneath, we were able to massively improve the aesthetic appearance of the walkway.

The old decking was fitted with anti-slip strips to help increase safety in wetter weather, however, by adding these strips, the natural wood appearance of the walkway was affected. By using a new anti-slip decking system, we were able to remove the need for anti-slip strips, leaving a much cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

At Maintainabuild, we always do everything we can to avoid disrupting business for our clients. As this walkway provides the only way of access into our client’s offices, it was important that we found a solution to make the important changes without preventing pedestrians from entering and exiting the building. To do this, we ensured that all works were carried out after office hours during the Easter break, helping to make sure that business could carry on as usual for our clients and causing as little disruption as possible.

If you are looking to renovate the exterior of your business premises, you can contact Maintainabuild on 020 7231 7778 to discuss your requirements. No matter how big or small the job is, it is always our priority to keep the outside of your office properties safe and accessible at all times.
