Guardian Security Service Presents - November 2017 Employee Of The Month

Guardian Security is proud to present Christopher Demchuk with our coveted Employee of the Month Award for November, 2017.  Mr. Demchuk has provided exemplary service for one of Guardian Security's residential accounts.



Mr. Demchuk has bestowed the client, visitors and staff with superior service, compassion and caring for everyone that works or visits the building. Mr. Demchuk has kept the facility worry free from any theft or vandalism the entire time he has worked at this site. On behalf of Guardian Security we thank you Mr. Demchuk for always going over and above your responsibilities to continue Guardian's promise to do whatever it takes to provide excellent service for all valued business partners.

Who Needs a Security Guard?

Our job isn’t to appraise what you produce, how you produce it, or whom you sell to. We believe every business is entitled to function safely and without threat of damages or loss. At our core, we are intensely interested in keeping you and your business secure. A few of our typical clients include:
  • Hotels
  • Retail Stores
  • 24-hour businesses
  • Hospitals
  • Office Buildings
  • Residential Communities
  • Airports
Virtually any place of business can benefit from our security protection and we can tailor that to the proper safety that your business needs. Full customization of security guard schedules, presentation (plainclothes or uniform?), and equipment means that this security feature caters to the image you have cultivated for your business, and makes this a necessity for the safety of your assets.

What Can Security Guards Do?

We understand that each of our client’s needs are unique. That is why our security guards are trained to provide a variety of services. Some of the things we offer include:

MONITORING

You may want to establish a security guard service that does more than patrol. You may need someone to review surveillance or even walk employees or customers to their vehicles after hours. A security guard can help defend a number of aspects of your business that doesn’t involve simply walking around the perimeter (although, that can certainly be an option as well!). It boils down to asking yourself what are your security needs? We have years of experience in creating the ideal protection package by asking the questions no one else thinks to ask. We find the weak links in your armor and, instead of attempting to hide them, actually find ways to fix them.

PREVENTION

Hiring a security company as part of your overall safety plan will go a long way in preventing criminals from targeting you. Unfortunately, businesses are a target for vandalism and theft. A secure presence will certainly discourage criminal activity and help your business keep a safe reputation. Guardian recognizes the line between creating a crime-free zone (like a prison cell) and a place wherein crime is significantly deterred all the while business is still encouraged. Your business is not a jail cell, it shouldn’t feel or behave like one. There should be a balance between safety and claustrophobia. Our experience in protecting businesses means we know where that line is for your business.

MANAGING CRIME

The security guards from Guardian are top of the line. We train our professionals to handle crimes that range from theft, violence, vandalism—and everything in between. We want our clients to feel confident when they call on our services; they get the most competent people in the industry. We understand that quality service means constantly evolving with the changes that occur in society. That is why our personnel is required to continue training and implement those new security techniques in their positions. Our constant and consistent training does not stop at physical reactions to physical crimes. Our personnel are trained in everything from reading surveillance and interpreting body language and micro expressions to categorizing anonymous threats and responding to the newest trends of criminal activity in the age of the Internet. Just as you and your business change and evolve with time, so too do our security guards — by remaining adaptable at all times.

PEACE OF MIND

It has been proven that the presence of a security guard actually offers people a sense of safety. People simply feel better when they know that a trained professional is keeping an eye out. As a business owner, it lets you know that someone else also has your best interest in mind. When you succeed, we know that we have succeeded as well. It’s a win-win from both sides of the spectrum.

Window Washing In Winter

While the best time to wash your windows is in the spring and fall, there are a few of you who are ambitious enough to tackle cold weather window washing. Winter windows need cleaning too, and we have a way to clean them without worrying about your cleaning fluid freezing.

Things you’ll need: Your favorite auto windshield cleaner, a spray bottle, squeegee, and paper towels.
1. Fill your spray bottle with 2 parts windshield cleaner and 1 part water. Be sure to choose a windshield cleaner that can be used with freezing temperatures.
2. Choose one window to start with and spray it evenly with your mixed cleaning solution.
3. Squeegee your window starting at one top corner, then down the entire pane of glass. Be sure to wipe the squeegee after each pass with a towel.
4. Use paper towels or newspaper to soak up any remaining cleaning solution in the corners and sides of windows.
Tips:
Clean windows on an overcast day to avoid streaks.
Dust windows and window sills before you spray any cleaning fluid.
Microfiber cloths work well for drying windows without leaving streaks behind.
Best of luck with your winter cleaning!

Fall Pest Control Tips

 As the seasons change and the weather gets cooler rodents, especially mice, are looking for warmth.

Tips on how to keep mice out

1. Keep the mice outside
Eliminate points of entry and easy access from outside. A mouse can squeeze itself into an small areas, if you can fit a pencil into a crack a mouse can also get through. One you identify the cracks use cooper or steel wool as a sealant because mice cannot chew through it.
2. Use mouse traps
You can find a variety of traps to use, but the most popular are the classic snap-traps. Use way more traps than you think you need. Also lay different types of traps with different types of bait. Use bait traps, multiple-capture live traps and glue traps in conjunction with the wooden traps.

3. Place the mouse traps along the wall

Place the traps perpendicular to the walls, with the trigger section facing the baseboard. Since mice run along the wall, it causes the mouse to run directly into the bait. 

4. Keep food out of reach

Mice are very athletic and can jump and crawl almost anywhere. Make sure to store food in glass jars or airtight containers. Your garbage could be attracting them so take it out at least once a day. Wipe down counters and vacuum your floors because even small crumbs can be a food source keeping mice alive.

Fall HVAC Preventive Maintenance Tips

1. Replacement of Your HVAC System

You should consider the age of your heating system before you do anything. Heating systems that are more than 10years old are only 50-60 % efficient. Therefore, you should consider replacing the whole HVAC system. Today, gas furnaces available in the market boast of efficiency ratings that are as high as 97%.


2. Clean or Replace Air Filters
Dirty HVAC filters restrict airflow and reduce the entire efficiency of the HVAC system. If you have not cleaned or changed the air filters of your system for a while, now is the perfect time to do it. This should be done on a monthly basis.

3. Adjust the Supply Register
Remember, cold air falls and hot air rises. So when the weather cools, you should open a few of the supply register on the first floor and close a few on the second floor. This will facilitate the heating of your commercial building in a more efficient way.

4. Calibrate the Thermostat
Correct calibration greatly enhances the efficiency of your heating.

5. Investing in a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat enables you to manipulate the cooling and heating of your office building. So you can easily set the thermostat at different temperatures for different times of the day. Use of this type of thermostat reduces the heating cost by 20-75%.

6. Professional HVAC Inspection
A professional contractor should inspect your HVAC system at least twice a year. The inspection is meant to detect any potential problems and ensure that the HVAC system is working as efficiently as possible. The HVAC inspection involves checking filters, inspecting electrical switches, belts, contacts, motors, safety switches, gas pressure, and refrigerant levels.

7. HVAC Maintenance Agreement
Fall HVAC maintenance agreement is a great way to keep your system at peak performance. Having an HVAC maintenance agreement not only gives you the advantage of priority service in the event of system failure, but also ensures that your checkups are done on schedule. This agreement will help you savemoney in the long run.

Winter HVAC Maintenance

The demand for HVAC systems increases as winter sets in. Therefore, you should always have your system inspected by a licensed HVAC professional contractor. A well-maintained system is highly efficient in both energy consumption and functionality and prevents costly repairs and replacements.

Kind of Winter HVAC Maintenance You Should Do

Even though energy bills are unavoidable during winter periods, below are some ways you can use to save some money:
• Be sure to seal any energy leaks around windows, doors, and other openings
• Ensure that the vents and ducts are clean, and air is circulating freely
• Maintain a regular annual maintenance schedule
• Use curtains to help keep warm air in
• Ensure that your thermostat is working properly

What to Watch for When Doing Winter HVAC Maintenance

You should always watch out for these signs that could indicate your systems inefficiency even if you have your regular system inspection:
• Higher energy bills than expected
• Inconsistent air-flow from the systems’ ducts
• Dirty air filters that need regular replacement
• Ductwork issues, e.g., peeling tapes
• Significant temperature differences between rooms

Importance of Winter Maintenance Program

Below are some benefits of performing regular maintenance on an HVAC system:
• Ensure safety and comfort of your home.
• The program maintains your warranty
• Efficient functioning of your HVAC system
Having regular maintenance on your HVAC system has numerous benefits for you. You will be able to save a lot of money in the long run due to the improved efficiency in both performance and energy consumption.
