A YEAR IN REVIEW: OUR MOST POPULAR POSTS FROM 2022
2022 was a better year than 2021. At least we were relatively free of lockdowns and although Covid is still with us, it seems to have faded into the background for most. Still, we’re ready to say goodbye to 2022 and hello to 2023 but before we do, we thought we would bring back some of our most-read posts from last year. Read through them one last time and then set your sights on the new year!
Trips to the doctor’s office are a part of life and generally, they are intended to keep us well and in good health. But is your doctor’s office really clean? Aside from all of the coughing and sneezing that goes on in the typical waiting room, there are germs lurking in places you might not have considered.
One key to tenant satisfaction is a clean and inviting property and satisfied tenants are less likely to move on to another facility. There are many approaches to multi-tenant office building cleaning. Some property management firms choose to leave the responsibility for the cleaning of individual office spaces to the tenants themselves, while others offer professional cleaning services that include individual offices. Regardless of your approach, having a plan for managing the cleaning of your facility is key to your success.
Public places such as retail establishments, movie theatres, government offices, and office buildings should be gearing up for increased foot traffic and larger concentrations of people as the weather cools.

You can not see dust mites. They are microscopic, insect-like pests that are responsible for some of the most common indoor allergens. Dust mites are not parasites; they do not sting, bite, or feed on our bodies. Instead, dust mites lurk unnoticed in bedding, upholstery, carpets, and ductwork silently triggering allergic reactions and reducing the quality of the air we breathe.
