As a property manager, there are many things you can control. Unfortunately, weather is not one of them. As we all know winters in the Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland areas can be brutal, with bone-chilling temperatures, snow, ice, sleet, and the occasional blizzard.
Since we have no way of predicting what Mother Nature has in store for us this winter season it’s imperative to prepare your building and property for the worst! Since winter is right around the corner we have curated a list of 3 critical tips you should consider when winterizing your commercial property.
1. Pressure Wash Your Building
Time is of the essence for pressure washing surfaces. To pressure wash the dirt accumulations on the exterior of your commercial property before the temperatures drop property managers need to be vigilant, especially if your contractor does NOT have hot water pressure washing units. Not to worry, KEVCO does. Our units will remove any dirt build-up from the fall and summer and leave your building looking beautiful for the holiday season, not to mention enhance its curb appeal.
2. Clean Your Windows
This is another service that needs to happen before the temperatures drop too low! We suggest having your windows cleaned twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. You’re running out of time, so if you want to avoid massive dirt build-up we suggest getting your windows cleaned as soon as possible.
3. Remove Debris From Gutters
With the leaves beginning to fall, your gutters will start to accumulate debris. If you do not tend to your gutters and downspouts, a lot of damage can occur to your home ranging from water damage to vermin infestations. If you wait until winter to clean your gutters the cold air will freeze the water in your downspouts, which will not allow the water to be flushed.
4. Perform a Pre-Winter Evaluation
