    moving office

    Moving is already a hassle, but when it’s your entire business, the stress can be overwhelming. In the midst of keep your operations running, the many tasks that come with moving equipment and furniture to a new space can take up a lot of valuable time. Greenup Specialty Services has you covered. With our commercial moving services you and your team can rest easy and operate with little to no interruption.

    Here are a few things to consider before moving your business to a new space:

    • How many work spaces need to be relocated? The amount of employees that will be moving with you is important to know when planning a timeline. Letting everyone know where they will be setting up is also good-to-know information for them. Sharing a floor plan will help keep everyone on the same page.
    • Are there any drastic changes in everyday maintenance? If your current leasing space includes shared restrooms with other offices in the building, the building owners likely have a dedicated maintenance staff for plumbing, lawn care electrical, etc. Making sure these things won’t change much, if at all, is recommended before even signing a lease.
    • Will you and other employees have access to the office after business hours? Does your team need to be out of the building by a certain time? Consider the time your team spends at the office outside of normal business hours. If they are doing considerable work at times that may be off limits at this new space, consider finding another space for your team to be able to work comfortably and conveniently.
    • Are there public transportation stops nearby? If your city offers public transportation and your employees travel to work this way, then it is important to find a space where they will be able to access these stops.
    • Is there room for your business to expand in the future? THis is an essential part of the planning process. Your team may not see growth now, but considering the possibility in the future is a factor to consider when choosing a new office space.

    Of course there are many more factors to consider before choosing a new home for your business. As stressful as it can be, the actual process of moving your office furniture and equipment will be most taxing and Greenup Specialty Services is here to help you.

  • Prepare Your Plumbing for Freezing Temperatures

    Winter has arrived in Southern Louisiana and across the South. With freezing temperatures reaching our typically warm, humid climates, many residential homes and businesses are left wondering what to do to combat against potential harm including frozen pipes. Greenup Industries specializes in In-Plant Property Management including Plumbing and Septic Maintence, so we’ve asked our experts for a few tips that might help you when temperatures dip closer to freezing.

    Safeguard Your Pipes
    During freezing temperatues, your pipes are at high risk. If they freeze over, they can somtimes burst causing a lot of financial strain to fix or replace. In order to avoid this, let your sinks drip over night. This helps prevent pipes from freezing. In addition, open cabinet doors to kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow warm air to protect and circulate around plumbing. Keep doors, windows and garages closed during these times, too, to better insulate and warm plumbing.

    Exterior Pipes Need Different Protection
    Spigots and outside pipes and plumbing require a bit of a different approach when preparing to prevent freezing. Wrap outside pipes in small towels and let drip if necessary.

    Prevent Frozen Septic Tanks

    Septic tanks freezing over can be an unimaginable mess for your business or home. To avoid dealing with what could be a severely foul occurrence, take the following precautions. Empty your septic tank. Yes, this is regular maintenance, but not always the first task people jump at when temperatures are already uncomfortably low. If a full tank freezes, this could cause a septic tank to burst. Another thing to consider is cracks and open areas. Be sure to inspect for any potential leaking as this could also invite more liquid to seep into the tank and cause bursting. And of course, keep water moving through the system if possible. Water in motion won’t freeze, so if your business is closed due to inclimate weather, be sure to check back in daily and induce some motion through the system.

  • Safety in our work and across the Gulf South

    The safety regulations at any refinery are extremely important and directly correlated to a staff's level of danger. Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf South is home to a large number of refineries, meaning there are thousands of workers who are at risk of injury for several hours a day. It is our job to make sure our people are safe and Greenup Industries puts safety at the forefront of every job we work on. 

    There are inherent risks present in the industrial industry that must not be overlooked. It takes detail oriented, meticulous teams to provide the proper environment for those working in the refining industry, which is why you don't often hear of major accidents or disasters on sites. Extensive procedures are conducted to manage potential risks all the while keeping operations running smoothly for all workers and the communities that surround these sites. 


    Because of the high safety standards, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports:

    • Refining is one of the safest industrial activities in the US, with fewer worker injuries than sectors such as education, retail sales, and financial services
    • The rate of non-fatal injuries among U.S. refinery workers declined by 36% between 2003 and 2011
    • efiners operate under extensive self-imposed safety measures designed to provide maximum protection to our communities

    Greenup Industries has been recognized for its efforts to keep safety standards a top priority in all of our work and this would not be possible without our team of experts working in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and California. The oil and gas industry could be so much more dangerous, but with crews like ours, negative statistics are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
