Re-Manufactured and Recycled Pallets for Your Warehouse

Pallets are an easy and convenient way to move products from one location to another. The most common place they are used is in a warehouse. If you work at a location like this, you can place a large order of supplies and keep everything on a pallet until it is moved to a store. Pallets can also be used by companies that have products sold outside so that the items are kept off the ground. These items might include pumpkins in the fall or flowers in the spring. 

If you have recently opened a company and need pallets, you can get new ones or some that have been refurbished. When you need new pallets, it is a good idea to order now instead of later as they are usually built to your specifications. You can order the size you need in length and width as well as the thickness needed. Re-manufactured pallets, although used, have been fixed so that they appear new. Boards have been replaced and nails have been tightened. You can also get pallets that are made of recycled materials. These are a great way to do something good for the environment, and they are often less expensive.

Renew Crew Eco-Friendly Outdoor Surface Cleaning

Homeowners spent a significant amount of money on professional landscaping and other maintenance services to keep a property in great shape. Power washing is perhaps the most common type of treatment used to clean driveways, decks, walkways, sidings and even roofs of a home. However, pressure washing techniques have their limitations. For the ultimate cleaning solution outside of a home, something more than pressurized washing is needed. Other types of chemicals and cleaners need to be applied to the exterior of a property to deliver the best results. Renew Crew is a type of company that offers cleaning and maintenance services that involve much more than power washing. 

A multiple step approach towards cleaning outdoor spaces is required for long lasting success. For example, a pre-soak is applied to the surfaces of driveways, walkways and wood. The soft foam penetrates deep between cracks and crevices and loosens up dirt, grime and other debris. Environmentally friendly cleaning agents are used to properly clean the hard to reach areas of outdoor surfaces. Although effective at killing bacteria, traditional bleaches and other harsh chemicals can leave permanent marks and stains on tiles, stone, concrete and wood. Additionally, bleach and other toxic chemicals may leak off to the surrounding grass, plants and other landscaping features of a home. Surely, homeowners don't want to have their beautiful gardens ruined after a power washing service that applied strong and harmful chemicals on walkways and decks.
