Business owners have so many elements of their business to think about, from revenue and profits to employee satisfaction and product quality. Building maintenance is easy to overlook, especially if it involves something you don’t use or see every day. This is why hiring a third party for regular inspections is so important.
From power washing to remodeling, there are several building maintenance services you might not even know you need. Let’s go over 10 of them.
1. Commercial Power Washing
Weather conditions and regular wear and tear can leave a commercial building looking dirty and dated on the outside. Power washing can address this by cleaning areas covered with dirt, leaves and other debris. Whether a one-time service or ongoing, power washing should be part of your building maintenance plan and can help your business look its best.
2. Commercial Window Cleaning
Dirty windows look ugly, reduce natural light and can create a poor public image for your business. Be sure to clean both outdoor and indoor windows regularly to keep them free from smudges, dirt, debris and grime.
Damaged, worn and cracked surfaces aren’t good for Dallas-Fort Worth businesses. Unfortunately, due to the unexpected weather and temperature changes common in the area, asphalt and concrete can get damaged in several ways. Keep them maintained with commercial asphalt and concrete services, from resurfacing to joint repair and sealing. Considering the exterior areas of your commercial property is an important part of building maintenance.
4. Bird Control
Birds can cause significant damage to buildings and pose health risks to occupants. Services that specialize in bird control can help prevent birds from nesting or roosting on buildings by installing deterrents such as spikes or netting.
5. Commercial Carpet/Floor Cleaning
Carpets and floors can harbor dirt, dust, and allergens. Commercial floor cleaning and carpet cleaning can help prevent these contaminants from accumulating. Professional carpet cleaning services use specialized equipment and techniques to deep clean carpets and remove stubborn stains.
6. Elevator Maintenance
Elevators are an essential part of many buildings and a crucial part of building maintenance as they tie directly to safety. Regular maintenance is critical to ensuring they operate safely and reliably. Elevator maintenance companies can perform regular inspections and repairs to keep elevators in good working order.
7. Pest Control
Pests such as rodents, cockroaches and termites can cause significant damage to buildings and pose health risks to occupants. Regular pest control services can help prevent infestations and keep buildings clean and safe.
Whether you own a fast-food restaurant, coffee shop or drive-through car wash, drive-thrus are used regularly but rarely thought about when it comes to maintenance. A commercial cleaning company can keep your drive-through clean and sanitized via mopping, dusting, equipment cleaning, surface repairs and more.
9. Equipment Repair
Are there any tools or equipment you use frequently, yet haven’t cleaned in a while? These are easy to forget about, but repairing and cleaning your equipment regularly can extend its life, prevent future expenses and give you peace of mind.
If you’re a contractor and want to avoid cleanup, a building maintenance company can help. Whether you are interested in rough cleaning (such as removing small debris and trash), final cleaning (e.g. dusting, vacuuming and polishing) or touch-up cleaning, the services are out there and available to you.
