These three services are all about first impressions. Read On….

Parking Garage Cleaning – Often not a first thought, but absolutely has a HUGE impact- Parking Garage Cleaning & Sweeping is an exterior maintenance service that is critical for visitors to your building, but even MORE critical for potential tenants to a building. From the second you drive into a parking lot or drive into a space in a below ground parking garage, “ I guarantee your first impression will NOT be a good one if there is dirt, debris and oil stains all over the parking garage or parking lot. Chances are if the parking garage is not well maintained, the inside of the building suffers as well,” says Cohn. This aspect speaks volumes to the potential building tenants. That’s why regular garage cleaning and sweeping services are critical to a buildings 1st impressions. With regular cleanings, your building will look good from the inside out!

Window Cleaning-Curb Appeal At It’s Very Best – When you walk up to a class A office building ANYWHERE, as soon as you hit the front doors, you are observing, with a critical eye, how the building appeals to you; you may be a potential tenant, you may be a property manager, property owner or you may even be a current tenant of the building-whatever the case, you are taking notice immediately, What makes this building appeal to me? Is the metal trim polished, are the floors sparkling, are the elevators clean- All VERY important, but the first thing you see are the windows; Is the atrium clean & free of fingerprints, do the bright rays of the sun shine through the mass expanse of the lobby glass? Window Cleaning, a critical 1st impression point is easily taken care of with regularly scheduled window cleaning services – and many property managers schedule bi-monthly cleanings of atrium and entranceway glass – an area that most visitors notice. Kenny says, “ Being the first and most impressionable service that we have offered upon our company’s inception, KEVCO still believes that our signature service of Window Cleaning will give property managers the most bang for their buck when it comes to exterior cleaning.”
