4 Things To Look For In Your Grounds Maintenance Supplies

Maintaining the grounds for a commercial or residential building is hard work and requires the right tools. When the weather turns cold, you want to make sure that you can rely on your equipment to get the job done. As you search for wholesale janitorial supplies from companies such as C & C Janitorial Supplies, there are some elements you should look for when it comes to choosing ground maintenance supplies and equipment.

The Right Type Of Equipment

It is not enough for a company to carry the garden hoses you need to maintain the lawns you work on. You need the right types of hoses for different jobs and you need the right nozzles as well.

As you search for a reliable supply company, compare what each company offers and go with the company that will help you to get the job done. Your reputation is on the line with each job you do, so it is important to have the right equipment each time.

Names You Can Trust

When it is time to clear the ice from an office complex, do you really want to use ice melter made by a company you have never heard of before? In the wintertime, the safety of the people who use the buildings you maintain is in your hands. That is why you have to make the right choice on the supplies you use and go with the names that you know and trust.

Environmentally Safe Products

You want the best products to get your maintenance work done, and you also want products that are good for the environment. When your customers know that you are using environmentally-friendly products to maintain their grounds, they will appreciate the extra effort you put into being conscious about the planet.

The Products You Need When You Need Them

A reliable maintenance supplies company has the products you need in stock and gets them to you fast. The weather is not going wait until you have the right maintenance equipment and supplies, which means that you need a supplier that understands fast and reliable service.

Your job as a grounds maintenance professional is to keep the grounds looking healthy and keep them safe as well. That is why you need a reliable maintenance supplies company that takes your job as seriously as you do.

Char Broil Big Easy

Today our friend, Larry, used his Infrared Turkey Fryer/Grill for the first time. We cooked chicken thighs and drumsticks.

The infrared heat locks in flavor and keeps the food moist; you use no oil, so there is no chance that it will burn, splatter or spill and there is no oil to recycle or to clean up. The infrared heat circles the cooker and penetrates the meat evenly, so it is moist and juicy on the inside and nice and crispy on the outside.

The meat is healthier too, because any grease or fat drips away into the drip pan located at the bottom of the cooker.

It cooks much more quickly than traditional methods too, it only took 1/2 hour to cook several pieces of chicken and they were done to perfection with the skin cooked crisp and the color was a beautiful golden brown. And, there were no uneven burned areas such as when you use a grill.

I thoroughly enjoyed using it and the food was delicious!!!!

Dancing around the May Pole

I can remember as a child, dancing around the Maypole on May 1st as part of a spring festival at school. I only did it one year – apparently right after that the USA decided that celebrating May Day was a bad thing because the USSR celebrated May Day and used it as a way to show off their military strength. Apparently if we celebrated May Day also, it was showing we approved of their government!

Stupid, right? I hope that we start celebrating it again, complete with the Maypole dance! It is fun to dance and sing!

Happy Easter

I hope everyone had a great Easter last Sunday. It is a time to rejoice at the rising of Christ. It is celebrated by Christians world-wide.

Think about the sacrifice that was made for the benefit of all mankind. It is truly an awesome thought that someone would give their life up for the good of all men.

Most people today have lost the real meaning of Easter. It got lost somewhere along the way with the Easter Bunny and colored eggs. I hope that the world starts to remember the true meaning before it is too late.
