Maintaining facilities is no easy task. Without proper planning, commercial properties and strata residences can keep you busy all year long. Nevertheless, you can keep your commercial building maintained with some planning and proven techniques. To help you plan for commercial building maintenance, here are our top tips.
Maintaining the building regularly helps to ensure it remains in peak condition at all times. Service the HVAC system, change the air filters, landscape the outdoor area, change the batteries on certain devices, and check the smoke detectors to avoid serious problems.
Carry Out Periodic Checks
A quick walk-through of your property will help identify any potential damage/problems that can be fixed immediately. An inspection need not be comprehensive, but you must pay attention to areas where problems may arise. Routine maintenance could prevent costly emergency repairs.
Pay Attention to High Traffic Areas
There is a lot of traffic in commercial buildings, and some areas are busier than others. In an office, several visitors pass through the central lobby every day, so the walls and floors may need to be repainted.
Keep an eye on areas that experience a lot of traffic, as they may need more attention.
Monitor for Mould
Mold can cause extensive damage to your commercial building as it must be cleaned thoroughly before it can be used again. There may also be rotting wood beneath it. You can also detect possible plumbing issues by looking for mould around the plumbing fixtures.
