Tips for Keeping Your Commercial Buildings in Top Shape During the Winter Months

Winter poses many unique challenges to keeping your commercial office buildings in top condition. Snow, ice, and salt make their way inside, resulting in trouble. Floors become slippery, and the salt wreaks havoc on hard surfaces like wood and marble. The biggest problem is the tremendous damage to carpets from the gritty mess dragged in from parking garages and sidewalks. Altogether, these common wintertime problems ruin the aesthetic of your building and pose slip-and-fall risks. But this is not the only area a property manager must pay attention to in the winter months.

It MAY be tempting to skip the winter exterior and interior window cleaning service in the colder months because of more frequent storms, but the aftermath of those storms is precisely the reason why you need to clean them. Dirty windows look cloudy and reduce the amount of sunlight coming into your building and the individual offices.

As a result, less natural light and passive heat make it inside. Natural light promotes productivity and is a mood booster for employees and visitors. During the dark days of winter, a boost of sunlight from clean windows breathes new life into your business, helps dry floors, and keeps excess moisture under control. In addition to making an excellent first impression, keeping your windows clean for tenants and visitors will create a light mood and ensure tenants and visitors are happy.

Parking garage cleaning, parking lot cleaning, and pressure cleaning or pressure washing are the three leading services property managers perform during the winter months. These services keep your floors and tenants safe. Damage to hard surfaces such as marble, hardwoods, and carpet can present major repair and replacement costs. Do your buildings a favor and solicit bids from exterior maintenance companies that provide these cleaning services.
