professional cleaningCommercial cleaning concerns all the cleaning and maintenance activities carried out in a commercial outlet, whether it is public or private. Such activities are often outsourced to professional janitorial services because,
• Professional cleaning services will do a more accurate cleaning job than the usual office staff who may not have much experience in cleaning.
• You don’t need to buy and stock costly detergents and chemicals to be used only once in a while. Janitors will bring their own in the required quantity.
• They also have a better knowledge on the best detergents to be used, where to use them and in what quantity.
• Janitorial services are also aware of new products on the market; you don’t need to waste time to shop for the best chemicals.
• Because they are regular buyers, they can even have products at discounted prices.

Trimming: an important process

August 20th, 2014

Trimming young and mature plants is important so that they remain in good health. Dead and too dense branches need to be removed occasionally so that sunlight can reach all parts of the trees and help them grow properly. Moreover, trimming also helps flowering and fruit production, thus is an important process.

Trimming tools

Specific tools are required for trimming and they need to be handled properly to avoid accidents. To trim small branches, a hand-held pruner or a larger lopping shears can be used. If the tree is big and high, a pole pruner would be more suitable and in order to cut thick limbs, a handsaw or chainsaw can be used. People doing trimming jobs are also required to wear eye protection to avoid pieces of wood from getting into their eyes.

Trimming for the good health of plants

Trimming is usually done to remove dead or infected branches: this will improve the health and look of the plant. Crisscrossing and inward growing branches should also be removed or else they will cause the tree to become too dense. Consequently, the branches will rub against each other and cause wounds and infections in the plant. Moreover, crowding branches in a tree may prevent sunlight from reaching all the leaves and hinder the plant’s growth. Thus, trimming needs to be done regularly.

Correct the shape and size of plants

Sometimes branches tend to grow in all directions and as a result they distort the shape of the tree. The branches may also reach people’s windows and cause damage by constantly slapping against the panes. Thus, to control the shape and size of plants, it is necessary to get them trimmed occasionally. If you are unable to carry out the task yourself, you can always hire professional help.

Techniques et conseils pour un travail de démolition

August 16th, 2014

Démolir une infrastructure est parfois un travail inévitable. Plusieurs raisons peuvent nous amener à effectuer cette opération, à savoir : un besoin de réaménagement, une réfection ou une décontamination. Étant un travail à risque, sa réalisation requiert des études préalables, des autorisations de démolition et des techniques spécifiques qui garantissent la sécurité du chantier. Vous envisagez de démolir un quelconque ouvrage ? Ne manquez pas nos conseils pour mener vos travaux selon les normes en vigueur !

Ce qu’il faut savoir

Après l’obtention des toutes les autorisations nécessaires, une démolition consiste en premier lieu, à déterminer la technique adéquate à effectuer. Ces techniques dépendent de l’emplacement ou des dimensions du bâtiment à démolir. Un édifice en région rurale, par exemple, requiert la démolition à l’exdestructionplosif. Pour une maison implantée en pleine ville, la technique la plus propice est le dérasement (démolition à partir du haut vers le bas) ou le sapement (destruction des fondations pour l’écroulement du bâtiment.). Quoi qu’il en soit, les mesures de sécurité s’avèrent toujours strictes, tant pour les voisinages du chantier que pour le personnel effectuant les travaux. La mise en place d’un grillage de protection et le port des équipements de sécurité individuelle (gants, casque, chaussures de sécurité, protection auditive et visuelle, etc.) pour le personnel sont ainsi impératifs.

Des obligations auxquelles on est soumis

Une démolition implique obligatoirement le désamiantage et le déplombage du chantier. Dans certains cas, ces démarches ne sont point nécessaires, mais elles restent néanmoins une obligation. Par ailleurs, il faut savoir que les travaux ne s’achèvent pas à l’effondrement du bâtiment. L’évacuation des remblais de terre issus de la démolition demeurent un autre travail important, et qui est dictée par la loi. Cela dit, pensez à inclure dans le budget de démolition, les frais de location des bennes, le transport des gravats et le nettoyage fin de chantier.
