We're More Than Just a Maintenance Company

Let Our Almost 40 Years of Experience Work For You

Who We Are

We are a full-service commercial maintenance company serving the Bay Area and other West Coast regions. Since the founding of our business in 1986, our initial vision of maintaining clean, safe, beautiful public spaces for shopping centers, offices, industrial parks and HOA developments with meticulous attention to detail remains our core value.

The Universal Difference

Our team strives to exceed expectations with detailed quality of work and executing our services to the highest of standards.

In understanding the many responsibilities that come with property ownership, our account managers work closely with their clients to ensure they receive the attention and communication needed every day.

Ultimately, this relieves the property manager of issues that could otherwise be a burden and leads to a clean, safe space for the public to enjoy.
