Once the harsh winter is over and the sun begins to shine again, this is the perfect time to start focusing your attention on commercial building maintenance. Not only can you make essential repairs and get the building ready for the following winter, but this is also a great opportunity to add value to the property and make the whole building more user friendly.
If you don’t want the building to become too hot during the summer then it’s important to keep the air conditioning systems well maintained.
Firstly, get a professional to check the air conditioning on a regular basis for things like debris and object that could block the airflow.
Secondly, it’s essential that the air conditioning filters are changed on a regular basis to keep everything running at maximum efficiency. Ideally, the filters should be changed about once a month, although for some commercial buildings this could be twice a month.
In order to keep the building running smoothly and to ensure the safety of the staff, you should always make electrical maintenance a top priority. This involves checking for any loose plugs or cut wires on a regular basis, as well as making sure the fuse boxes are in good shape and are not on the verge of cutting out.
As always, hiring a professional to take charge of this essential commercial building maintenance task is always advised.
Many commercial buildings have large kitchens where meals are cooked for the staff, and the cooking equipment needs constant monitoring and maintenance so it continues to operate at a high level.
As an example, many kitchens have a number of different range hoods that operate for the majority of the day, which means it makes sense to inspect them on a regular basis, especially the fan. It’s also recommended that you clean range hoods on a consistent basis so you can get rid of the buildup of grease and oil.
The winter months often cause a lot of damage to the roof, and if left alone then you could have a very serious problem on your hands in a year or two. This is why the roof of your building requires lot’s of maintenance during the summer, so it is in perfect working order just in time for winter.
A professional roofer will be able to replace broken tiles, patch up a leaky flat roof, fix broken gutters and pipes, and just generally keep the roof in good working order.
Landscaping and gardening
The summer months are the perfect time to call in the landscapers and gardeners to maintain the grounds around your building. You might not realize it, but there are many different issues such as overgrown shrubs and trees, excess weeds, and grass that needs cutting every week or two to keep it looking neat and tidy.
You might also want some flowers or plants on the the exterior of your building to make it look more appealing. A landscaping and gardening professional will be able to advise you on the best way forward.
