How To Maintain Your Business Property Throughout The Year

November 27, 2018 Business News No Comments Email Email

You should treat your business like you would your home, and keep it in good check throughout the year. 

Your workspace is important to show off your company, so you’d want to keep it in pristine condition. There are plenty of ways to keep your business maintained, so let’s go through some of the most important ones!

Get Annual Service Checks

Certain aspects of a property keep the structure together and running like clockwork. These elements in your business will need annual servicing to make sure nothing is damaged or bordering on breaking down. So be sure to get the boiler serviced to make sure the heating is running at it’s best and isn’t at all faulty. If your boiler breaks down, it means no hot water and no heating, two very important things to have especially at this time of year. No heating means your staff won’t be keen to work and that affects work productivity. The roof is also an essential part of your business property but it’s one area that’s often ignored, and that’s when damage to can happen to occur. Be sure to get an annual roof inspection just to check for any fallen debris that might have left cracks or damaged the exterior. The last thing you want is to be letting in any wildlife or leaking any heat that’ll end up costing you more on your utility bills.

Freshen Up Your Outdoor Space

You should be taking advantage of any outdoor space you do have and keep it maintained with regular visits from the gardener. Over the winter, it’s important that the right materials are used to help avoid any flowers or plants dying. Replace the soil with soil reuse services where necessary and install some water features to really draw the attention of your guests. Outdoor furniture is also useful for meetings outside or as a breakout space for employees. Get rid of any weeds and other debris regularly that may have appeared on your property due to the weather.

Be Mindful Of Security And Safety

Your safety and that of your staff are important, and it should be a priority in the office. Unfortunately, theft and burglary do happen so to deter those people away, make sure you have good security that’s in view at all times. Think about installing door code locks in all areas, particularly in places where there may be lots of staff or confidential information lying about. Check the fire alarms and get regular inspections of them. It’s something that we tend to forget about, but you’ll soon be reminded if a staff member is burning toast in the kitchen and the alarm doesn’t go off. Set a date in the diary every six months to a year, to have an inspection. This should be the same for all other building inspections.

Touch Up The Exteriors

Everything from cleaning out the property’s drains to giving the walls a fresh coat of paint, a few odd jobs like this can really transform the outside of your property. Power washers are great for getting rid of grime both on the walls and outside tiles or pavements. Use a hedge trimmer for any overgrown shrubs and check all the windows to make sure there is no rotting of materials or possible signs of damp or damage to them.

Move Around The Furniture

With a space and spending so much time in it, it can often lose its appeal and perhaps be a little boring for staff to work in every day. However, regularly moving around the furniture and experimenting with the space will not only be fun but it might transform it completely. And when you’re not spending any money, it’s even better. It also helps if you have heavy furniture on carpet or covering wood so that it doesn’t become permanently dented or fade in color.

Get Eco-Friendly

In times where climate change IS very much a thing, it might be good to do your bit for the environment and get eco-friendly. From insulating your walls and roof to adding solar panels, you not only save on your carbon footprint, but you save money in the process.

Try using low energy light bulbs around the office and invest in systems that will save on your heating and electricity.

If you don’t take care with your property, it’ll end up becoming even more costly so fix any damages and treat your office surroundings with love so that it will remain pristine and professional throughout the year.
