“When you talk about being a good steward, of being careful with the company resources, this is about more than the purchases you make or do not make,” Irving said. The Brighton office manager has been in his position for nearly thirty years, and prides himself on running a tight ship. “It is also about maintaining the assets that you have so they can serve the company well for the longest possible amount of time.”
Carpet cleaning represents a great example of Irving’s philosophy. On average, commercial carpeting lasts about seven years – a lifespan that can be significantly shortened by exposure to moisture, salt, and grime typical to a Brighton winter. “However, if you have the commercial cleaning service regularly and diligently cleaning the carpets, I have found they last much longer,” Irving explained. The carpeting in his business has been replaced twice during his tenure. “The first carpets lasted twelve years, and the second, fourteen. I expect these most recent carpets to be here long after I myself am gone. In this way, I have gained a total of twelve extra years of life from these carpets – which means I have replaced them one less time than normally one would expect. That is a significant savings in my budget.”
Upholstery cleaning is another example of the value of maintenance. “While the soft furniture does not endure as long as the carpeting, I have been able to extend the life of the furniture in the reception area by having the Brighton commercial cleaners thoroughly clean the upholstery.” Irving explained. “To be quite frank, if the leadership had not decided they wanted to change the color scheme, we would still be using the same chairs!”
