SUMMER MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES

As a maintenance management company near St Louis Park, we have plenty to do this summer to help care for and maintain a variety of commercial properties in this area. So we thought we would offer a few suggestions on what you should do to keep your own commercial property looking great this summer.

You should first keep an eye on your building’s HVAC system. When your cooling system breaks down and it’s the middle of summer, it means your building will get uncomfortably hot pretty quickly. A maintenance management company like ours will keep an eye on all of your HVAC equipment to detect early signs of needed repair work. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so keeping an eye on this system and taking care of small problems before they become bigger ones could save you a lot of time, money and hassle in the long run. Make sure all filters get changed on a regular basis and make sure all outdoor units are clean and free of leaves and other debris.

On a regular basis, you should also look at all electrical outlets and wiring. And if you are inexperienced in this area, you should get a professional to come in and take a look on a regular basis. A maintenance management company like ours has workers who are experienced with electrical systems, so we can inspect outlets and other aspects of your building’s system to ensure there are no frayed or broken wires and that all switches and fuses are still in good shape.

Roofing and siding should also be looked at regularly. Make sure your building’s roof is not experiencing any leaks, and make sure that all gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and draining the water off of your building’s roof. If your building has siding, walk around perimeter occasionally to check on it, especially after severe weather or high winds.

You should also keep an eye on your building’s basement if it has one. This area is especially prone to flooding, so always be sure to check on it after a storm or a high amount of rain has fallen in your area.
