What To Do When Renting Your First Office Space

January 31, 2017 • Ben Filly

Your office will be the key to your business success. Remember that running a business is not a simple task. You need to make sure that you are making all the right decisions for the sake of your company. In this case, one important decision you have to make is choosing the right office space. When renting an office space, there are several things that you need to do in order to choose the best place for your business. Following are some such things that you need to adhere to.

Consider AccessibilityIf you have already established a core team for your business, you need to make sure that the space you choose is geographically closer to these individuals. If you pick a place that is located in a rural area, it can be hard for your teammates to reach the office every day. So, pick a space in the city and make sure that it is accessible to all. You need to see whether there are proper public transportation services available in the area too.

Think about AmenitiesWhen looking for an office for rent, you need to decide on what amenities you want nearby the office. For instance, it is important for the area to have a local restaurant so that your employees can buy lunch if they want to. The neighborhood should also have a hospital, grocery store and ample parking space too. If you choose such a space, your employees will definitely be pleased.

Look for AlternativesAlthough renting your office might be cheaper, it is important for you to take a look at other options too. This way, you will know that you are making the right decision. For instance, speaking to companies that offer office leasing in Hong Kong might be a good idea. Leasing the space might benefit your company financially on the long-term. Therefore, do not forget to take this option into consideration. 

Have a BudgetYou need to have a good budget and you must adhere to it strictly. Once you choose the geographical location, you need to think about the cost. Although you might be renting the space, think about how much you can pay per month. Remember, that you have other monthly expenses to take care of too. It is best to look for a deal that includes all the utility costs in the rent itself. This way, you will not have to pay too much.

Adhering to these guidelines will enable you to ensure that you are choosing the right place to run your business.

The Role Of An Electrician

January 30, 2017 • Ben Filly

When you hear the word ‘electrician’, the first thing that comes to your mind is current. Therefore, it is common knowledge that the primary role of an electrician is to ensure the flow of current in safety and reliability. Other responsibilities of theirs will tend to vary on the industry or job they are engaged with as the role played by an electrician will differ depending on the field they are putting their efforts into. Following are some of such handpicked roles played by an electrician.

A new constructionThese types of electricians that are involved in a new construction typically require a blueprint provided by the builder or architect to work on the wiring. These blueprints are what instructs the electrician on where certain bulbs, switches etc. should be located and therefore is the map for their work. However, the process of ensuring that the flow of electricity throughout the construction in a safe way is solely up to their hands although they have been directed on where and how the elements are required to be located.

Industrial settingsThere are some electricians that prefer working on industrial building as HDB electrical contractors rather than working in residential projects. One of the reasons is that being a part of large scale projects would enable a higher income for them and everything will be done professionally in comparison to residential ones. The electrician might most probably need to play multiple roles, depending on the requirement of the employer in industrial contracts.

RepairsJust as some electricians prefer industrial contracts, some on the contrary prefer engaging in residential deals where it will not be as complex as being involved in large scale projects under employers that require them to play multiple roles. Even in houses that were built years ago, regular electrical consultancy is necessary for circuit breakers and wiring are likely to become obsolete with time. Therefore, you will most certainly need their assistance in cases like HDB rewiring and replacement of certain circuits.

Commercial purposesThis type of electricians is mostly involved in offices. Such involvement is quite beneficial in their case as the arrival of new equipment signs that more wiring related work is required to be done, hence having to contribute more. If they are not paid a monthly salary and paid based on the contracts, it is indeed a plus factor. They also render their services to retailers as well.

Therefore, knowing which role they play and hiring the right one to suit your needs is up to you!

Why Should You Control Pests?

January 27, 2017 • Ben Filly

Take a moment, relax and imagine. You are in your garden on a lovely, warm summer day. A cool breeze low your hair back as you settle down on your lounge chair with a glass of your favourite cocktail or mock tail in your hand. You can hear the sounds of the birds chirping and children laughing next door. You smile in happiness as you realize that everything feels so right. You take a sip of the cocktail and lay back comfortably.

You feel that it is going to be a wonderful day.

You reach out your hand to take a piece of fruit from the side table and your fingers brush upon what feels like fur. Your eyes widen and you turn your face to look at what your fingers just touched and then low and behold, a mouse stares at you. Then the whole world shakes as you let out a blood curdling scream.

The above situation can happen to just about anyone. Mice and other pests are absolutely annoying to have. They can destroy plants, outdoor furniture and if they happen to get into your house, they would destroy everything in sight. Be it fruits or vegetables you keep outside, plastic or wooden containers and even clothes.

Even worse they could carry diseases. Diseases such as Plague, Salmonellosis, and Hantavirus Pulmonary syndrome have claimed the lives of many people, and all of these are spread by rodents and other pests. The plague is responsible for wiping out millions of people during the 14th century. 

So clearly you shouldn’t just treat pests as minor annoyances and should call down the necessary reliable pest control services in Singapore to be removed them from your property. Failure to do this, not only invites diseases and destruction, it could also with time be the cause of your house being demolished. When an infestation goes beyond control, local governments can intervene for the safety of the community and could even condemn your house. 

Therefore pest management is necessary. This can be done in many ways. You could get rid of rodents by not leaving out anything edible in the garden and ensuring that the outdoor environment is always kept clean and is well maintained. You should also carefully inspect your garden to see if rodents are present. Partially eaten vegetables and droppings are signs that there are pests in the property.

If you suspect pests to be inside your property, either set out traps or call professionals to examine the property and get rid of unnecessary tiny visitors.

So always make sure you control pests utilizing proper methods. If you do not do so, your problem could become a very big one with drastic consequences.
