Our Facility Services: What is Facility Management and Why is it Important? - Service Uniform TX
What are facility services? And do you need them? We’re here to break it down for you.
Facility: “Something designed, built, installed, etc. to serve a specific function affording a convenience or service” (Dictionary.com). You’ve probably heard the term facility thrown around every which way, especially facility services and facility management. But you may wonder, based on the definition that a facility could really be anything that serves a function, what exactly are people referring to when they talk about facility services?
The definition of facility management is not much more specific than the vague definition of facilities. Facility management is essentially the management of any aspect of your business and business space to ensure that everything is running smoothly. This includes the building itself – for example, making sure your business is well-maintained and safe for your employees to work in.
While Service Uniform provides a wide range of apparel services to help improve the aesthetic, productivity and savings of your company, we consider facility services to be those products that directly improve your facility’s cleanliness. This includes: mat rentals, towels, hand soap, air fresheners, dust mops and wet mops.
The Goals of Facility Services
There’s a reason we chose these specific services to provide.
1. Facility Services Improve Building Cleanliness and Safety
A dirty floor, germ-laden door handles and nasty odors aren’t going to do your business justice. A dirty facility won’t make your employees or your customers happy. By providing you with the essentials, you can make your business space cleaner and more inviting and also reduce the amount of sick days employees will need to take. Not only do our services protect your employees from potentially getting sick, but our floor mats can help prevent slip-and-fall accidents.
2. Facility Services Streamline Business Operations
One thing you probably know about running a business is that there are many tasks that are completely unrelated to what the business does. But that doesn’t make these tasks any less essential. We’re talking about making sure that you constantly have hand soap in stock in the restrooms, that your towels are well-maintained and clean, that your facility smells nice, etc. When you work with a company that provides the facility services that you need, you can spend less time worrying about these things and more time focusing on your business.
