Fire prevention

Fire is one of the greatest threats to your family and home. Not only do you need to be quickly alerted — you need to respond fast to fire alarms as well. Fire has the potential to wipe out everything in its path in just minutes. You need to take every possible precaution to minimize its risks. Listed below are some helpful tips to keep your family and home safe from fire.
  • Take care with electrics – over 7,000 fires a year are caused by faulty electrics.
  • Never plug an extension cable into another extension cable or overload plug sockets.
  • When replacing fuses, ensure the correct rating is used.
  • Don’t run cables under carpets, they can get damaged, short, spark and set fire to the carpet.
  • Ensure you don’t exceed recommended wattage when replacing light bulbs. Higher wattage bulbs may give off more heat then sustainable by the lamp shade and cause char, smoulder and open flames.
  • Unplug appliances when not in use.  
  • Don’t place wet washing on heaters or in front of fires.
  • Don’t leave lit candles unattended and always put them out before going to bed.
  • Have a spark proof guard in front of all open fires.
  • Ensure that children don’t have access to cookers, matches or are left alone with access to open fires.
  • Never store more chemicals and cleaning fluids then you need.
  • Store paints and thinners in a metal container; never store flammable materials under a staircase.
  • Close all internal doors to limit fires from spreading, especially at nights.
  • Be watchful when cooking - over half of all home fires are caused by accidents in the kitchen.*
  • When cooking, never leave hot fats or oils unattended. Make sure saucepan handles don’t stick out as they may be knocked off the surface and cause fire.
  • Don’t exceed the recommended cooking times of high starch and/or sugar content foods when using your microwave; these can burst into flames.
  • Make sure your smoke detectors are working correctly (test regularly!)– 1 in 3 smoke alarms fail to work and warn residents of a fire, mainly due to missing or non-working batteries.*
  • Get a fire blanket and fire extinguisher, and know how to use them.

Effortless less tips to maintain your office

Businesses spend substantial resources on impressive office design and refurbishments. In order to avoid incurring additional costs throughout the lease, it is in the immediate interest of any company to invest time and plan wisely for proper care and maintenance of office furniture, equipment and interiors.

As an option, you may choose to employ professional service providers for office maintenance on a contractual basis, to do away with all the hassles of keeping your office clean and up-to-date. Alternatively, you must be on a constant vigil so that suitable office maintenance measures are executed to create a smooth and healthy work environment.
Let’s go over some tips for easy office maintenance.
1.    Promote Clean Workstation Policy
Encourage your employees to do away with cluttering their desks and ensure that every desk is dust-free by adopting healthy housekeeping practices.
Keeping each workstation neat and tidy would mean half the battle won. Also, cleaner work environment would mean enhanced productivity.
2.    Maintaining Leather Finished Furniture
If you have invested in expensive leather for your office furniture, undertake appropriate measures to maintain its quality and appearance. You must refrain from using alcohol-based abrasive cleaners and opt for the ones available specifically for leather.
Also, be careful not to expose the material to direct sunlight. Engaging the services of a skilled leather-cleaning technician would be recommended.
3.    Wood Furniture Care
Finished wood furniture is quite easy to clean. Ideally, wipe the surface with a damp cloth and treat with wood polish next. Some offices might have antique furniture created from untreated wood, for which special care must be taken. Only dry cloth should be used to clean off the dust and special oils available to retain the finish of such wood must be used.
4.    A stitch in time…
Encourage your staff to report any anomaly they come across within the existing fit-out. For instance, if someone noticed a loose screw or a strange noise in one of the office chairs, they should immediately notify the appropriate person to fix it. Such prompt measures will ensure safety of the employees and avoid further damages.
5.    Focus on the Reception Area
Your company’s reception area is the face of your business. The overall appearance of the area and the cleanliness must be immaculate and ooze professionalism to create a lasting impression on your clients and visitors.
The seating area must be kept spick and span at all times. Watch out for worn out furniture pieces or upholstery and replace them without delay. Invest in high-quality stain removers to keep every inch stain-free.
It is a must to inculcate the importance of a clean workplace in your company’s primary list of objectives, so that each employee understands and acknowledges its importance in building a cleaner society and boosting overall productivity. 
A clean and well-maintained office space aids building the right professional attitude and a touch of refinement; and puts you across as a serious business enterprise.
