Casino Maintenance: From Surface Sanitation to the HVAC System

Each year more than 50 million people visit casinos in the United States and play some of the 1 million slot and video game machines across the country.

Airport Maintenance: From Surface Sanitation to the HVAC System

The Los Angeles Airport saw 87.5 million passengers pass through in 2018 making it one of the busiest airports in the United States. Keeping a facility this size clean is a complex and ongoing task.

These systems run 24 hours per day, 365 days per year and rarely see any downtime.
