Make your maintenance crew uniforms work for you!

Are you ready to learn about what the best options would be for your business’s work uniforms? Companies specializing in building maintenance need to look and feel their best. Building maintenance crews work in many public environments, such as schools, hotels, hospitals, and other businesses. Apartment buildings may also use maintenance staff to clean or repair individual apartments. Whether servicing a commercial building or someone’s home, you will want this guide to maintenance crew uniforms! 

The Main Components of Great Maintenance Crew Uniforms

Functional Design

All work uniforms must have a functional design, but it is especially necessary for people who need to move freely to perform physical work, such as cleaning or inspecting machinery, vents, etc. When the job requires you to do very physical tasks, the uniform must endure dirt, spills, and sweat and still last for as long as possible. Materials and weaves, such as microfiber, can wick away moisture from the body and hold up well. Uniform companies such as Red Kap, which Lord Baltimore features, offer work clothing that can withstand the hardships of the job. 

Professional Appearance

Maintenance crews must meet clients and be in the public’s eye in many cases. They need to have an identifier that makes it clear that they are there to service a particular appliance or building. You have an overlap between appearance and function with the work uniform’s fit. Today’s maintenance crew uniforms are form-fitting rather than baggy, promoting a sharp, tailored look while making workers more streamlined and comfortable.

As for uniform colors for maintenance crews, darker colors are preferable for their professionalism and ability to hide dirt better. A neutral color like gray or brown works well, as do navy, dark green, dark red, and purple. Your decision will depend on the colors of your company logo. 

Don’t forget that part of the outfit! The logo makes it plain what company and service an employee represents. For maintenance crew uniforms, a small logo on the front right or left side is usually enough to look professional.

Professional Maintenance

It isn’t merely the uniform design that makes your uniforms serve their purpose. It is also the ongoing maintenance of the uniforms themselves that will keep your brand looking fresh and your employees looking their best.
