Simplify Your Work by Outsourcing

There’s a growing desire to de-clutter our lives and streamline everything we have to manage.  For some, this is as simple as cutting back on phone apps, but how do you do this at work? The simplest way is to outsource time-eating tasks to specialists. If you’re not sure what you can outsource, start by determining how […]

Revenge of the Brick: 3 Dumb Phones to Consider

How distracting is your smartphone when compared to older dumb phones?  Does it cause problems with your productivity?  Are you experiencing connection fatigue?  Tired of constant notifications buzzing in your pocket? You’re not alone.  Many users find modern smartphones too distracting.  There’s several solutions for this, including an app we’ve mentioned before where you shut […]

5 Reasons to Outsource Office Cleaning

Office cleaning is one of those silly little chores everyone hates, but it has to get done.  Interns or fresh hires often get tasked with this chore, and larger companies will eliminate dust bunnies by hiring in-house janitors. That’s a lot of extra hassle to manage for a small weekly chore in either case.  It would […]

Diary of a Dust Bunny

Day 1 … Where am I?  What am I?  … I’m not sure… I seem to be made of bits of fluff and dust, a little fuzzball in the corner.  Not sure where I came from, but here I am.  Guess I need to learn more about my surroundings tomorrow. Day 2 The inhabitants don’t […]

A Day Worth Commemorating

It seems like there’s a day for everything now.  National Haiku Day, Cherry Cheesecake Day, and even Jelly Bean Day- and that’s just in the last week!  However, today is a very special day, one we fully appreciate here at Dallas Janitorial Services.  Today is Stanley Hudson’s favorite day- Pretzel Day.           […]

Trees and Earth Day: Why Should We Care?

Note: the general tone of this post may not reflect the political stance of Dallas Janitorial Services.  It is largely my own personal (conservative-leaning) opinion. Earth Day was this past Saturday, and National Arbor Day is coming up this Friday (although for Texas, it’s typically celebrated on the first Friday in November).  With it came a long […]

Need Help Budgeting Time?

We recently talked about balancing your financial budget.  There’s another budget many of us struggle with (some even more than with finances): time management. Time management is another vital skill that we often have to teach ourselves.  However, the process that works best will vary wildly from person to person.  This may be why schools let […]

Filling An Education Gap

Over the years, a drive for better scores on standardized tests have driven schools to cut out untested subjects.  There’s only so much time in the classroom, and teachers are judged on how their students do, so they focus on the tests. This includes an essential life skill: budgeting. Every student was taught to balance a […]

Pets: Adopt First

Man’s best friend (and cats, man’s best live-in enemy) tend to get left out in the cold. Thousands of animals each year end up in shelters, and many end up put down.  The simplest action to take is the same one Bob Barker preached for decades. Spaying and neutering pets prevents the birth of new […]

Today is National Haiku Day

There’s a holiday for everything, and that includes haiku.  Today is National Haiku Day, when everyone is encouraged to write their own haiku. If you’re unfamiliar with haiku, there’s no need to worry because it’s a pretty simple concept.  Simply write a short poem consisting of three lines, but make sure the middle line is […]

Don’t Give Up On Change

More and more, people are paying electronically, including us here at Dallas Janitorial Services.  Maybe it’s with a credit card, or maybe it’s with the growing list of phone apps, but it’s happening. And maybe we should stop. The biggest reason to go electronic is also the biggest drawback: it eliminates loose change.  Sure, loose […]

Can’t Visit the Flowers? Bring them Home!

At the end of last month, we at Dallas Janitorial Services provided plans for a perfect road trip to great wild bluebonnet locations. Some unfortunate souls won’t have the time or ability to travel, or don’t want to leave their freshly cleaned homes, so we wanted to suggest an alternative option: growing your own beautiful flowers. […]

Actually Doable Office Workout

I’ve scoured Pinterest for realistic and fun office workouts and have two problems with most of them. 1. I don’t want to be all over the carpet (unless it has recently had a hot water extraction by Dallas Janitorial Services!) 2. I don’t want to be in my chair. I already spend half of my life there! […]

It’s modern, friendly, and the food is pure art.   A Truly Happy Monday The company also has a fantastic culture and fun team […]

Best Bluebonnet Route in Texas

Even though bluebonnet photos are almost cliché, who doesn’t feel a thrill when they spot our beautiful blues popping up? One of my favorite road trips is down highway 281 to Fredericksburg. If you have not been through Marble Falls and Hill Country, this trip is a must. The views are fantastic, especially in April when […]
