Why commercial Gutter cleaning, repair and maintenance is important

Have you at some point stepped into a big puddle of water while walking out of or into a commercial building? Have you been dripped on as a result of an overflowing gutter? I bet the answer to these questions is a foregone conclusion as most have experienced this in one way or the other. The reality of things is that it doesn’t always have to be this way. This situation is common in most workplaces or commercial buildings because the owners have taken a reactive approach rather than a proactive approach. The mantra “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” has largely contributed to this problem. However, the solution is pretty simple as all that building owners need to do is simply undertake regular maintenance, cleaning of gutters and repairs if need be. Regular inspections can help prevent this problem and inadvertently reduce costs related with repairs and new industrial guttering replacements. In light of this, why is commercial gutter cleaning and maintenance important?

It is important to note that during winter, your gutters suffer the most as extreme weather conditions and strong winds lead to broken branches, leaves, debris, stones and dirt that end up clogging and blocking gutters. The resultant effect of blocked gutters is water overflow when it rains, damage to the exterior of your building as well as damaged fittings and fixtures. In order to avoid this, it’s instrumental that you do regular inspections, cleaning of your gutters as well as maintenance.

Regular inspection, cleaning and maintenance is not all about reducing the costs. It is also about ensuring that you give the proper professional impression to your customers. After all, you only have one chance to make a good first impression and failure to do so might lead to catastrophic consequences. For one, it’s imperative to note that leaking roofs or overflowing gutters can negatively affect your business in a number of ways. For one, it leads to poor customer experience. The last thing you want is for your customers to step into puddles of water as they enter your business or get dripped with water.

Remember your customers are your greatest asset and poor customer experience can lead them to desert you in droves hence bringing your business to its knees. Overflowing gutter also has the negative effect of damaging and discoloring your exterior walls hence making them appear ugly and making your building look old. Remember customers want to do business with a professional looking entity and therefore poor exterior aesthetics might deeply affect your business if not nipped in the bud in good time. It is also an indication that you don’t care about the wellbeing of your customers

If you notice that repairs are not enough, installation of new industrial guttering systems will be of essence. However, emphasis should be on prevention rather waiting to spend an arm and a leg in repairs and new installations. Ensure you clean your gutters regularly and that they undergo maintenance regularly. It serves to ensure that you project the right image to your customers and that you cut down on repair and new installation costs.

Lights! Music! Insurance?

The small theater company that I work for, often holds special events. Last year we held an event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the theater company. Because a lot of people were attending, we had to hold the party in another location.

The theater only seats 300 people, and about 700 were attending the event. This meant that we had to hire out a room in a hotel nearby. We wanted to use our own bar tenders on the night as it would work out cheaper for us (It did), but we knew that we also needed insurance. read more

Does music make a difference to a movie?

Wherever you get your movies from, be it from a well-known subscription service, movie tube or elsewhere, there’s no doubt about it, there’s always a lot of music involved.

Who knows how many different tunes are played through-out the course of a movie? There must be at least 20 in each one, but why are they there? Real life doesn’t have a soundtrack (As good as that may be), so why do we always hear some sort of music during the show?

Building an atmosphere

The fact is that music can help to build atmosphere, it can give you a real sense of what is happening, and the mood that you should be feeling. Epic drums beats that you hear during a car chase may help you to understand the importance and drama of the car chase, whereas a nice gentle tune would reduce the dramatic effect. read more

Want to market your band? Here’s how…

So you’re in a band and you want to get your message out there. You want more and more people to hear about you, and of course, buy your music. But how can you go about this without spending thousands of dollars on marketing your band?

The good news is there are ways that you can market your band without breaking the bank, and here are just some suggestions that may help:

Play in clubs and at festivals

This is a great way for you to be heard, but you do have to be good in order to play in clubs. Start practising at least twice a week, and you’re sure to get better. Sometimes you may have to play for free, and sometimes you may have to play to a very small crowd, but it’s all experience, and it all counts. Give your very best each and every time, even if your Mom is the only one listening. read more

Download or CD: Which format is best?

These days there are only a few albums that are available in CD format. Most albums and indeed singles come in download form, which makes storing the music so much easier.

CDI used to have a lot of CD's, and they were all stored in a nice wooden CD rack in my home, but I got rid of a lot of them as they were taking up a lot of room. This is the trouble with CD's, they canbe big and bulky, although not as much as they used to be.

Storage space

So when we download a track, we don't have to think about the physical room that it's going to take up. Granted, it does take up some storage space on our devices, but there's usually plenty of room for it. Things can get tough to deal with though, when we run out of space, and therefore have to either erase something, move it to another device, or even buy more storage space.

With these things in mind, I want to ask you which format you consider to be the best? I'm in my thirties and I grew up listening to vinyl records, tapes and then CD's. I remember when CD's first came out, they seemed to be a lot better at holding a lot of tunes in a very small space, but these days, they aren't as popular as they once were.................................
