Running a home or a business requires regular maintenance. While there are a few differences in the needs of the two, many of the services required or desired are the same. Listed below are just a few examples of some of the types of services often used by a homeowner or a business.
As a homeowner, you want to keep your family and your belongings safe from intruders. As a business owner, you want to protect your equipment and supplies and important files and documents. Luckily, having a high-tech alarm system installed is relatively easy. If you prefer to use an outside service there are many business and home security companies available. Since not all companies offer the same services and equipment, it’s important to do a thorough check of what’s available and also check testimonials from people who already have the system installed to make sure that they meet your criteria.
Pests can do a lot of damage to a home or a business. And, as a homeowner, who lives in the residence, they can also cause a serious illness to you or a loved one. Thankfully, there are many companies that specialize in the removal of many types of troublesome insects and bugs like termites, roaches, and the common house fly. Pests, like bats, rats, mice, and raccoons can also become a problem for a business or a homeowner. Knowing what works is important to the permanent removal. There are over-the-counter remedies available. However, if you want to truly rid your home or business of pests, a pest control company which provides monthly visits will prove to be the better option. There are things you can do to create an environment that’s not pest-friendly. Doing things like clearing away tree limbs, debris, weeds and plants from the perimeter of the property and making sure that you have no leaky pipes or food lying around will help.
For a business, an attractive, clean appearance outdoors adds a professional look that gives you a sense of pride. For the homeowner, a well-maintained lawn and bushes add curb appeal and a desirable and safe environment for children and pets to play. A maintained lawn and yard not only looks good but also prevents an invasion of many bugs and insects like bees, mosquitoes, ticks, and ants. Many lawn care services offer a variety of treatment options that allow you to maintain a healthy lawn all season.
Businesses often use outside cleaning companies once or twice a week to come in and do things like empty trash cans, vacuum rugs, wash windows, wipe down desks and clean service stations. Many homeowners with two full-time working parents also use a cleaning service once a week to do many of the same jobs. It allows the business to perform with a clean, neat space that’s appealing to potential clients and less distracting to employees. For the busy homeowner, having someone in once a week to do the fine detailing of the home, frees up valuable time better spent enjoyed with family and friends.
Whether you are the owner of a company or a homeowner, there are many services that the two have in common. While all are not critical, for the business owner they help keep the focus on bringing in the sales and the homeowner enjoy a safe, nurtured environment for quality living.
