You already know commercial buildings and facilities require a lot of attention. And the necessary efforts escalate when the temperatures plummet. Snow, cold, ice, harsh winds and other winter elements can be problematic on your properties. Even if you took preventative measures during the warmer months to winterize your commercial buildings, you can’t let maintenance coast waiting until spring is in bloom.
Use the following list of common winter threats to develop a strategy for you and your service team to keep your properties in tip-top shape no matter what the weather is outside.
Frozen pipes can lead to a wet mess, so preventing your plumbing from getting to chill needs to be a top priority.
The lower the temperature goes, the better the heating portion of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system needs to operate.
When the weather delivers ice, snow, high winds, and bitter cold, you need to act quickly and responsibly to ensure the safety of your tenants and your crew.
If what’s overhead is in poor shape, what’s below immediately becomes vulnerable.
The cold reality is that winter can wreak havoc on commercial properties, but with the right precautionary measures, you can avoid being left out in the storm. Work with your service team and call in skilled, professional vendors to keep your buildings running efficiently and effectively.
