Exterior Maintenance Companies Can Help Property Managers in a COVID-19 Environment

17 Apr2020

As the Nation comes together to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by performing their due diligence with washing their hands, wearing masks, and social distancing, our country has been presented with a list of directives, some of which have highlighted the importance of the critical infrastructure workforce, or, in other words, who is the “essential workforce.” On this list of industries and businesses that are considered essential to enduring the continuity of functions critical to public health and safety are cleaning companies. These companies and workers who have been identified as essential are allowed to conduct business in the Corona Virus environment. So what does that mean to the Property Managers who are conducting work from their “home office”? Let’s take a closer look and learn how Property Managers can maintain the exterior of their properties in a COVID-19 environment.

Exterior Cleaning is Still Important

There are many exterior maintenance tasks that cleaning companies can perform while maintaining all of the safety protocols mandated by the CDC. Services that come to mind while maintaining these protocols are exterior window cleaning, parking garage cleaning, and pressure cleaning services. All of these services, performed on exterior surfaces only, are ones that can easily be done while observing all of the safety and social distancing guidelines. Many times these companies, because they are providing cleaning services have also added to their cleaning solutions some form of a disinfecting solution – and one of the best disinfecting solutions on the market is good old fashioned alcohol and bleach. Both of these, even one of these, places an added layer of protection and disinfecting agent to the surface it is applied to.

So if you are a property manager and you want to know if you can continue to maintain your office buildings and other properties that you manage in this COVID-19 environment, fear not. With buildings having increased vacancies during normal business hours, many cleaning companies have been able to assist customers by shifting work that would normally be scheduled during the weekend to a workday.

So let’s keep the properties that we own or manage in top-notch condition by having the essential cleaning businesses clean and maintain our properties while adhering to all of the rules and safety regulations set forth by our local jurisdictions. Businesses like ours can help keep the outside of your buildings clean and help keep the people in and around them healthy with disinfectants.
