Estimating the market for construction equipment sales

Heavy construction equipments are required in all parts of the world. Their demand has increased all the more after the growing economy in the Indian sub-continent, Middle East, Far East and Oriental nations as well. Countries like China, Singapore, etc. are developing at an exponential rate in the area of infrastructure development. Chinese infrastructure has become so strong in the recent past that even the interior cities and remote areas are also well laid with clean broad roads, buildings, shopping malls, bridges, etc. All this growth has let to increase in the construction equipment sales. Construction equipment sales had been most in the western regions in the decades of sixties to mid-eighties. But in past twenty years the economical growth in the eastern part of the globe had been exponential. The rise in the middle class and better earning resources has led to the growth of the economy.

This growth has called for more development of residential and commercial outlets, etc. The increase in the development of such outlets has led to increase in the construction job works. These job works have adapted to the changing developmental pattern thus construction equipment sales have gathered pace equivocally. More and more builders and architects have come together and large construction companies have built boulders all along the economical growth. Huge towers, shopping malls, big broad roads, expressways, highways, bridges, flyovers, etc. have led to the increase in construction equipment sales. Since all this development work calls for larger companies to shoulder all kinds of job works, many companies have made strategic partnerships, joint ventures, governmental bodings and alliances with the domestic counterpart for better growth. All these large companies have built up their own construction fleet along with the construction specific manpower. These construction equipment sales are usually related to the iron and steel prices. Since there have been more excavations for the iron ores and new outlets, iron and steel market has grown at a healthy pace in these developmental decades. The large projects require heavy capital investments.

In developing countries the cyclic rotation of capital is more regulated and strategic. Thus the investors are able to opt for large borrowings and generate their own capital for purchase of heavy construction equipments. Thus the heavy equipment sales in these countries are more properly funded and less prone to financial risks. In case of construction equipment sales pricing is also an important factor.

It determines the extent of sales or whether the constructor would prefer to go in for rental equipment. Pricing also acts as a determinant of demand in the market. Demand is led as per the specific country, availability of these equipments in the region, prices of iron and steel, etc. moreover, for the construction equipment sales financing of the purchase of the construction equipment acts as an added advantage and gives a competitive edge in selling the equipments. Financing the purchase leads to increase in the construction equipment sales of the manufacturers. Thus construction equipment sales are more or less directly dependent on the pricing structure and financing available, as it gets included in the project cost.

These sales are more prevalent in the growing economies where more infrastructure developments regularly take place.

Get a credit card merchant account

A card merchant account can put your business on the road to financial success. If your company is not yet accepting credit card payments, you are missing out on the powerful potential of this income stream. Many business owners who started taking credit card payments claim that their income has doubled while overhead costs have diminished. When you become eligible to receive credit card payments, you are likely to experience an increase in sales volume and chase fewer dud checks. To facilitate credit card payment, however, you will need to apply for a merchant account. Start by finding a lender you can trust. This may be a bank you already work with, one that perhaps got your business started or helped it to grow to where it is today. If so, there is a good chance that the lender will continue working with you in this key operative.

But if you do not have such a lender or if the one you do have does not seem eager or suitable for underwriting your merchant account, you will have to find another reputable bank, credit union, or other financial institution to facilitate this account. Your card merchant account can make or break your company, so it is wise to spend time finding the best possible lender for this purpose. Don’t just grab the first deal to come along. Take time to shop the many available offers and compare terms before making a decision. All too often a new or small business owner will be dazzled by the array of benefits that suddenly become available through a merchant services card. Then, after implementing this account, expenses mount while income remains stable or falls and the company can experience a shortfall.

Approximately 80% of small companies close their doors within two years. Don’t become a casualty of this predictor. If you are approved for a merchant account, use it according to your business plan or company budget. Avoid investing large amounts into questionable activities. Start small by purchasing or leasing a basic credit card processor for your physical location. Or get a wireless unit for deliveries or remote destinations.

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to get started. Go it one step at a time until you see how your customers respond and what your potential growth is shaping up to be. At that point you can always add more services, like an e-check processor or a pager, if you find they are truly needed for continued growth. After getting approval for your card merchant account, you usually can start accepting credit payments immediately. Make sure you understand the terms of your account, which often boils down to a per-transaction rate of perhaps 20 to 25 cents. Or you may be able to opt for a low-interest monthly fee that may or may not impose certain minimums. In other words, you will be charged a baseline amount for up to perhaps 1,000 credit transactions. If your company does not get that many, you still have to pay the baseline fee, but you will not have to pay more, even if you get 2,000 or 3,000 credit card transactions, although this can vary from one lender to another.

Check with local or online lenders for more details on applying for a card merchant account.

Hotels how to get free gifts

Planning to visit Las Vegas or any other vacational resort where casinos are a major portion of their business? I have just the thing for you. Here, I will show you how to pass off as a High Roller and collect many complimentary items and gifts. What is the Secret? The Secret is that you have to make them believe you are rich and love gambling. In short you have to impersonate a High Roller. Why? Hotels love high rollers because these players leave behind thousands of dollars each visit. And the real cool part about this is that if you act the role, casinos will lavish you with the same gifts and complimentary items that a real High Roller would receive. How ? It is not that difficult to fool the hotel and resorts with some finesse and true self-confidence. It can be done. 1) The Way you Dress: Elegant and smart is the way to go. Opt out of the baseball cap, t-shirt and jeans. Try and wear a suit or at least a regular buttoned shirt with an elegant dark jacket. It was Shakespeare who said that the clothes maketh a man, and so too, when going to a hotel resort. They judge you according to how you dress, so dress according to the role. 2) A Large Pad of Notes: Yes. Just like in the movies. Carry a large bundle of notes with you and keep them in plain sight. You do not have to really take with you that much. Instead, take a few notes and place them at the top and at the bottom of real note-size paper cuttings. Just remember to never expose this while you are in the casino. Use other notes you’re your wallet instead. But do it nonchalantly so that none of the casino personnel will notice. 3) Always Flash Your Notes Around: No matter where you go, whether its to the hotel restaurant for lunch or for to the bar. They will be watching. From time to time, use that money to play at a range of table games or video game and bet some of that money. Remember you must use some of your money to play but just do not use all of it. 4) Play Complicated Games: This is one of the more problematic things to do and requires some training at home. Learn on your own how to lay and how to bet on the high rolling games such as roulette, baccarat and craps. You could also play poker or Texas holdem in one of the larger ante tables, but in any case stick to your plan and you will soon reap the flowers. Conclusion: Above, I have outlined some of the more practical methods by which one can save money by receiving gifts from the casino. These gifts range from casino comps (free money to play), room deals that can get nearly free and many others such as free drinks, clothes, coupon to stores in Las Vegas and many more. Note that what you are doing here is completely legal provided you don't take up a false name or falsify your passport card.

Is made in the usa destined to be a thing of the past

There may come a time in the not-too-distant future when we don't make things in this country anymore. This isn't hype, this is basic economics. It is also two government policies at odds with each other. Policies that can and should change this year. For decades our government has been pushing industries into using natural gas for their energy. Natural gas is a clean and efficient energy source, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by about 35 percent over other fossil fuels. Plenty of manufacturing industries switched over-the forest products industry relies on natural gas for nearly half of its purchased energy. Additionally, millions of homes are now heated with natural gas; and thousands of fleet vehicles-buses and delivery trucks-run on natural gas. Demand for this clean energy source is way up. There is, however, a problem. All the while the government has been promoting the use of natural gas, driving up demand, they have been severely restricting the supply. Our government has put a ban on the exploration for natural gas-mostly in our coastal waters in the Southeast. The area known as the Outer Continental Shelf, or OCS, off the Atlantic coast and in the Gulf of Mexico, has enough natural gas to heat 100 million homes for 60 years-or 20,000 factories for 30 years. But nobody is allowed to tap this resource. So practically every day the price of natural gas-with high demand and limited supply-goes up. In the future we will be importing more and more natural gas, likely from countries with hostile policies towards the United States but plentiful natural gas reserves. As prices for natural gas skyrocket-they are currently more than three times their historic average-manufacturing industries are suffering. Pushed into natural gas by the government, we are now suffocating on the lack of supply. Energy, once just a cost of doing business, is now the third highest expense for the forest products industry, and may soon rival the traditional top expenses: raw materials and employees and all their benefits. The high price of natural gas, artificially created by poorly designed government policies, is wiping out our competitive advantage. In the end, it is going to cost American jobs and that "Made in the U. S.A" tag may, in fact, become something for the history books.

Most common employer complaints

Large companies will often have large offices with many employees working in cubicles. The cubicles may give the worker a feeling of being alone, but it is important to remember that you share the space with your coworkers. Here are some important tips on how to act in world of cubicles. Disturbing your co-workers: Being a disturbance to the rest of the office is one of the most commonly reported complaints about a worker. It is not good to be known as the noisy one in the office because what will happen is one day the boss will ask someone why the report or whatever they were working on was not done in time and to cove their butts they will blame you for distracting them from their work. Talking Behind their Backs: Getting caught talking about co workers behind their backs is the most common cause of hostile environment lawsuit. This is why many companies will immediately fire someone who is found to be talking about the other people in the company to cover themselves from being sued. My advice is to keep what you hear or see to yourself. Communicating with the Real World Bosses know that their workers are going to make and receive personal phone calls and emails when they should be working, but that does not mean it is acceptable to spend all day having conversations over email or constantly having to go outside to take phone calls. Some bosses actually expect you to do some work while they are paying you. It is also important receive large attachments at work. Receiving thinks like video clips can take up much of the offices bandwidth for the time it take to receive them. This means that the other people who may need to use the network resources may be denied because of your download and I can tell you from experience that this angers bosses. Sit at you desk: It is not uncommon to walk around the office to have a chat with another co-worker, very often you may have to talk to someone about some work this is perfectly acceptable, and to share pleasantries is expected but to spend 10 minutes talking about non work related subjects is a bit much. The more time you spend away from your desk on non business related things the more your boss may start to think how necessary you are to the company. Lunch: Eating at your desk is fairly common in a busy office, but try not to bring or order food that has a strong smell or is wrapped in a wrapper that makes too much noise when you open it.. As much as you may enjoy the smell of your food others may not. Try to bring in food that does not have any odor that someone else can smell. And loud wrappers can get on peoples nerves and can cause resentments that can come back to haunt you in the future. Cologne and Perfume: Work is not a night club. Many of the people you share your office space with may be fine with the smell of your perfume or cologne, but some people do not like the smell and depending how strong the smell is, it can give some people headaches, so whenever possible please do not wear any strong scents to the office. Cubicle Decorations: Our cubicle is not your own personal space it is a place of business. There is no reason to fill your cubicle with little knick knacks to make it more like home. Here is a little secret your boss does not want you to feel at home he wants you to feel like you are at work. When you feel more relaxed most people are less productive, and when people visit the office it does not look professional. Watching the way you act and being courteous to your fellow workers can make a difference between having a career with the possibility of raises and promotions or a dead end job.

Light up your wholesale distribution sales selling refillable lighters to convenience stores

Copyright 2006 Jorge Olson Business Review: Lighters Wholesale Distribution Business. Lighters are one of the easiest things to wholesale and distribute. Stores buy them like crazy! I started selling lighters when I had my route in San Diego with about 600 stores. Other distributors told me about how much money they were making with lighters so I decided to give them a try. They were right. Since the first day we introduced them to the stores they were best sellers and they have remained best sellers for years. The first thing you should know is that I’m not talking about disposable lighters or even name brand lighters like Colibri or Zippo. I’m talking about Novelty or Collector lighters. The kind you see in convenience stores and liquor stores. They are butane refillable lighters. For example, the top selling lighters were lighters in the form of a gun, torch lighters and chopper motorcycle style lighters. The lighters cost about $1.25 to $1.50 plus shipping, depending on the style of the lighter. Some of them are regular flame lighters, some of them have a torch, and some are double or even triple wind resistant torch lighters. Lighters come in a small cardboard counter display. You get all of the same kind in every display. You get from 12 to 30 lighters in each display, depending on the size of each lighter. When you distribute the lighters you sell them for at least $2 all the way up to $3 or even $3.50. It all depends where you are in the USA or in the world, the size of your town, the size of the stores, etc. You learn how to price them quickly from the first time you go into the stores. So how much can you make? Well, if you leave an average of 2 displays per store containing an average of 25 lighters each, you’ll sell 50 lighters at an average of $3.00 or $150 sale. If you paid $1.50 per lighter including shipping you made $1.50 per lighter or $75 profit in one store. If you sell to 10 stores that day you are selling $1,500 and pocketing $750.00 minus your gas and other expenses. That’s not bad for a few hours of work. In my business all of my salespeople have to visit at least 20 stores per day, not 10 stores! Let’s go over the numbers of our example again: - Your cost per lighter including shipping= $1.50 - You sell the lighter to the stores = $3.00 - Each display has an average of how many lighters = 25 - If you sell just 2 displays to the store how many lighters did you sell = 50 lighters - How much was the sale? = $150 - How much was your profit? = $75 - If you sell to 10 stores in a day how much do you sell? = $1,500 - How much do you profit minus gas and other expenses? = $750 Again, your business will vary depending on how many stores you have, how often you visit them the price you sell them for, and many other variables. Let me tell you what I like and don’t like about the business. What I like is that you go through a lot of lighters really fast. They are small and easy to store and carry. They come in their own display so you don’t need to buy racks or displays (although you can if you want or if the stores like them). I also like the fact that lighters are small and you don’t need a truck or extra storage to sell them. The thing I like least about the lighter business is that the margins are not as high as with other products. I think it’s a fair trade because of the volume you can sell. The other thing with lighters is that people like to choose them. Instead of you selling whatever you have in the car people like to play with them before they buy them, they like to test them, to look at every one. It’s a novelty, so they want to buy what they like, not necessarily what sells. All and all I think it’s one of the best businesses to be in.

Reducing legal malpractice exposure

Many legal malpractice claims share common allegations/themes that can be avoided if law firms have the proper risk management measures in place. Implementation and maintained use of some very rudimentary systems and procedures can reduce the likelihood of being sued, or in the event you are sued, can bolster your defense. Below are some basic tips law firms can utilize to help reduce their legal malpractice exposure. Engagement Letters - Legal malpractice claims often hinge on whether or not the claimant can establish that they were a client of the attorney (or at least owed a duty of care in 3rd party claims) and that the attorney agreed to handle the matter in question. A written engagement letter prepared for each client or potential client can serve to establish the facts of the lawyer-client agreement.

Ideally an engagement letter would include the following: • Name of client • Scope of services (and in certain circumstances specifying what services are not being performed/included is also appropriate) • Fee amount and billing schedule, including payment expectations • Identification of any potential conflicts of interest • Name and contact information of primary attorney handling the matter including outline of firm’s communication guidelines (i. e. timeframes for responses to phone calls, faxes, letters, etc.) • Client’s obligations to the attorney and/or firm • Dispute resolution method and initiation procedure Non-Engagement/Declination Letters - These are often the difference in getting a meritless claim dismissed. As important as engagement letters are, non-engagement/declination letters are equally important. Written documentation to the former potential client advising that you will not be representing them is critical in establishing that no professional relationship existed. Non-Engagement/Declination letters should include the following: • Name of potential client • Date the attorney and/or firm met with potential client to discuss representation • Details of the potential case which were discussed • Statement clearly advising the potential client of the attorney’s/firm’s decision not to accept the case Disengagement Letters - Various circumstances may arise that prompt a severing of the professional relationship between a lawyer and client. This often occurs before the matter for which the attorney was hired has reached a final resolution. In such circumstances it is crucial the “disengagement” be documented in a letter to the client. If the client subsequently hires new counsel who makes an error, the disengagement letter may be the best defense to establish who the responsible attorney was at the time the error occurred. Disengagement letters should include the following: • Name of client • Date the attorney and/or firm are terminating their representation of the client • Statement clearly advising the client of the attorney’s/firm’s reason for disengagement (i. e. case concluded, client request, non-payment of fees, etc) • Successor counsel: if known include their name, if not include a statement advising client to seek new counsel Professional Liability Insurance - Consistent use of the letters described above may help you reduce the possibility of being named in a malpractice suit, however they won’t eliminate the possibility of claims. Lawyers professional liability insurance won’t eliminate claims either, but it can serve to minimize the impact a malpractice claim might have on your firm. When deciding whether or not to carry professional liability insurance, consider the following: • Frequency of client claims and malpractice law suits are on the rise. The National Law Journal has reported that an attorney can now expect to be sued at least once during their career. • Defending a malpractice claim is expensive. History tells us that approximately 35% of loss payments in professional liability claims are due to litigation expenses, so even if you prevail with your defense it will be costly. • Your personal assets may be at risk without appropriate professional liability insurance in place. • Many clients, especially larger companies, are now requiring proof of professional liability insurance before they will enter into an engagement. • Many, if not most, referral services require the attorney or firm have professional liability insurance in place before they will begin referring cases. • Some states and jurisdictions now require that you disclose to clients whether or not professional liability insurance is in place. If you are a small or mid-sized law firm that has experienced difficulty finding lawyers professional liability insurance due to paid claims or disciplinary actions, DefenseProSM Lawyers Professional Liability may be able to help.

Finding the right printing company

When you have materials to be printed you are often confronted with the dilemma of finding the right company to do it for you. If you were to use a printing company that offers inferior quality than what you are seeking, you would find yourself with products that are not saleable. Likewise, you might find a printing company that cannot complete your print job in the required time and this in turn would cause you considerable stress. For this reason, it is important to shop around for the right printing company. If you need full color for your print job, finding a good full color printing service can take a lot of time and effort. Be wary though of the different services of printing companies. Because there are many different printing services available, the quality of work will vary greatly. Thus, you need to find out some information about the service before availing of the service and agreeing to pay for the work. You can find out about the work of a particular printing company by looking at their portfolio.

Ask them to show you some of their work. Doing so, you can closely examine some of their printing works to find out if they produce the quality of printing that you are looking for. You can also ask them to show you a trial print to see how your project will look like when printed. This way you can also evaluate the quality of the print to find out if it meets your standards. Ask also if they specialize in a certain type of work or range quantities. Additionally, when searching for the right printing company, look for good printing not for good design.

Look for smooth, clean colors, solid areas and for images and text that are focused. At a minimum, the printer will ask you what form of artwork you will submit, the number of colors that you will use, the quantity you need, how you want it finished, packaged and shipped. Perhaps it would also help if you would show the printer an example of the quality you expect and what you are hoping to achieve. Because your print jobs are important to you, it is essential to carefully choose the print shop that will print your creations for you. So do some careful research, narrow the field, ask good questions, find people who care about quality and when you find the right printer he will make a good job great.

Benefiting from using small business credit cards

Using a business credit card will provide the small business owner with a monthly statement, listing all business transactions in detail. This is very beneficial because it separates business expenses from personnel expenses. Business owners do not need to sort out personal expenses from business expenses or worry about losing receipts or making reimbursement errors. With such categorized statement, the business owner is able to spend more time analyzing and monitoring expenses to decrease cost where needed. This business credit card statement simplifies the process of filing a business income tax. Using a personal credit card to make purchases will cause errors and inaccurate reporting and poor business management.

Maintain good communications with the client and respond rapidly to any requests or complaints. 3. Maintain good relations with your staff. Your most valuable resource are your staff so treat them well and not just in monetary terms. 4. Maintain all equipment used on a site in excellent working order. If a piece of equipment is not working efficiently then the cleaners no matter how hard they work are not going to be able to carry out the cleaning effectively and they will soon become disgruntled. 5. Ensure that there are always adequate supplies of cleaning materials available for the cleaning staff on each site. If they have not got the materials then they cannot carry out the job effectively. These five points would seem to be common sense and indeed they are. However the larger you become and the more contracts you take on the more difficult it becomes to carry them out consistently. You are out there working away trying to attract in more business, attending to new customers, setting up new contracts and sometimes involved in crisis management. Under these normal pressures of work these basic principles can be pushed to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list. A clean may be going along with no problems and under these circumstances it is quite easy to assume that all is well and does not require your attention. Then out of the blue it can come up to bite you! Consequently always give time to perform these five ‘rules’ regardless of the other pressures on your time. Experience has shown that the larger the company becomes the more these five points become neglected. Very large companies often lose contracts simply because they neglected these five cardinal rules and you can step into their place and pick up these contracts. However you must always be on your guard that you do not fall into the same trap as you become bigger.

Read This Page, And I'll Show You How To Make $25 In Just 7 Minutes (Or Less), Sitting At Home In Front Of The Computer... And The Best Part Is... You Can Do It Over And Over Again!" No boss. No alarm clock. No stupid co-workers that drive me nuts. Make $500 to $3,500 Per Month From Home Without Owning a Website Without Selling Anything Without Paying for Advertising Without Needing Prior Experience Discover an unbelievably quick and easy way to give yourself a big fat pay raise, without leaving your home or risking one penny of your hard-earned money ... Dear Internet Friend, It's embarrassing for me to admit this now, but I have been making a very nice income working from home for quite a while now - and keeping it secret from most of the people who know me. Until... I was taking the trash out not long ago, and my neighbor Jessica stopped me at the curb. "I have to ask you," Jessica said, looking at her feet, "what the heck do you do for a living?" I shrugged. It's a question I avoid - not because what I do is wrong or anything, but most people either don't understand it or they just flat-out don't believe it. "No, really," Jessica said. She looked up. "What do you do? Did you win the lottery? Or did you author a famous book or something?" I laughed and asked her why she would say such a thing. And then she told me something that made me decide to put up this web page... She said, "I don't want to be nosey, but here's the deal... I get up every day and shower and put on a dress and leave my family to go to work for a living. I come home after dark, I'm dead tired, and I just fall onto the couch and go to sleep in front of the TV." I nodded. Jessica was getting worked up. "You, on the other hand," she said as she pointed at me, "are home when I leave in the morning. You're home when I get back from work. You have a nice house, a nice car... and as far as I can tell you don't even have a job. So I want to know how you do it!" Immediately I felt sorry for Jessica. Here I had been thinking that she was just nosey - and the truth was, she's just desperate to find a way out of the 9-to5 trap. She wanted to be free from work-slavery. So I told her exactly what I'm about to tell you - all about the best-kept "secret job" I know of. http://

Have you thought about selling services

It's not widely known that it's possible to sell services on eBay, in fact there's a large category devoted to it, called ‘Speciality Services'. To give you an idea of some of the possibilities, some of the main sub-categories include: Advice & Instruction Artistic Custom Clothing and Jewelry Auction Services Graphic & Logo design Media editing and duplication Printing Restoration and repair Web and Computer services As you can see, there's quite a range on offer, and bear in mind that there are specific niches even within each of these main sub-categories. For example, within the ‘eBay auction services' category, there's more categories such as appraisal, listing services, packing and shipping, and shopping assistance. I bet that either you can provide a service that falls under one of these categories, or you know of someone else whose services you could promote (and take a commission). I would suggest that your first step is to browse these categories and see what people are offering. You'll soon see which topics are swamped with sellers thrashing each other on price, whereas others will have gaps in the market waiting to be filled by you. Let's suppose that you have a friend that happens to be an expert at camera repair, yet in the local area his store has been struggling to find enough work. A quick check in the ‘camera & photo' category of ‘restoration and repair' reveals just 6 listings, and only one seller seems to be a regular in that category, AND they are charging what seems to be a decent amount for the service. I would say that this represents a tremendous opportunity for someone else to come into that niche and provide a quality service. That's just one example of how you can offer a service to a HUGE audience, easily and cheaply. I'm amazed that more sellers aren't doing this, services are such an untapped market right now on eBay. Continuing with the camera repair example, imagine if the business owner produced some ‘camera repair' DVD training guides - simple instructions on easy maintenance tasks from an ‘insider expert', and then offered those DVD's for sale as a backend product. They would sell loads of them, especially because the customer had recently experienced the pain of having a broken camera! It's the perfect tie-in product because the customer would no doubt want to do anything to prevent a reoccurrence, by means of preventative maintenance. I love this business!

Switching to day time cleaning

All the talk in the cleaning press at the moment and over the past few months has been about the move to cleaning offices during normal working hours. Machine manufacturers are coming up with quiet vacuum cleaners, scrubber driers and buffing machines all of which supposedly allow you to carry out the cleaning without disturbing the occupants of the premises. For cleaning companies this would make life a lot more pleasant and cleans easier and cheaper to manage and the cleaners would be able to work more sociable hours. According to some reports in the cleaning press companies are falling over themselves to switch their cleaning to office hours as opposed to after they have closed down for the day. My own experience would not indicate that this is so. None of our clients have asked to move their cleaning times or even considered it as a feasible option when they have been approached about the possibilities of changing the cleaning times. Vacuuming with ‘silent’ vacuums is not a problem. Cleaning toilet areas is not a problem. Cleaning kitchen areas is a problem as they tend to be in constant use during the day. Doing anything to hard floors is also a problem. If there are people using those hard floors then while they are being cleaned they have to be diverted away from those areas which is obviously an inconvenience to them and something that is not going to be tolerated for long..

Any food deposited in waste disposal units, bins etc will be left overnight with the potential to smell come the following day. Also there can be no attempt at cleaning work stations whilst someone is at work. All in all the problems of cleaners trying to do their work whilst the occupants of a building are trying to carry on with their work far outweigh the advantages. Cleaning times will be extended and prices will rise. The theory is good and I would love to be able to get all the cleaning out of the way come five in the evening but the practicalities will not allow it to happen in many work environments.
