Improve Your Building Security

Improve Your Building Security

Long holiday weekends, such as Canada Day, provide more opportunities for vandalism, thefts and burglaries. These practical measures can help protect your facility without blowing your budget:

Install outside lighting with motion detection units. A thief caught in the spotlight is more likely to rethink his plans.

Choose landscaping that doesn't offer hiding places and keep all plants well trimmed.  A few tips: Keep your landscaping in good shape. Shrubs that are less than three feet tall are best, and those with thorns are a plus. 

One third of all break-ins are by people who have keys to the building. Remind employees not to lend their keys to anyone else, including other employees or contractors.

If your facility has CCTV cameras, check that they are working and optimally positioned with good lighting.  They should be placed at entryways and parking lots. Check that your DVR is recording properly with clear images in a secure location.


Our company Yellow Pages and Super Pages before that, has been dealing with Service Master for many years. If you compare Service Master to 10 or even 15 years ago and now, it just gets better. It could be the staff is better trained, but I think that cleaning technology is getting better all the time and Service Master Management is implementing better ideas to clean our offices better. We have cleaning staff that has been in our building for a long time, so I know how they work. Some are just excellent workers. And when you have the #1 Cleaning Manager Sukhi looking over our account, we are really lucky. There is not too many complaints, and if there is any, Sukhi provides fast service and able to remedy the problem.

The personal relationships with all the staff at ServiceMaster Clean make all the difference to us and our business.
