Commercial property maintenance services handle your building and grounds repair and upkeep. The roof to the basement to the curb, these companies take care of your property for a flat rate. What services are included in the rate?
Preventative maintenance is almost always included. Preventative maintenance is necessary to keep the building and its equipment in good working order to prevent future failures. This saves you time and money and improves your equipment.
There are several areas included in preventative maintenance. The heating and air conditioning system is a major one. Qualified contractors perform service updates to keep the systems well maintained. Another area is the janitorial services. They inspect and clean hallways, restrooms, elevators and entryways to meet sanitation standards. The elevators are inspected annually for proper working order.
Roofing and gutters are inspected once a year. The roofer will determine if any work needs to be done, if the roof needs to be replaced or any other problems from an aging roof. The gutters and downspouts are cleaned regularly and monitored for leaks.
Seasonal maintenance falls under the preventative category as well. The grounds are reviewed for drainage issues, while the building is inspected for freezing and wind damage. The maintenance crew weatherizes the property by closing vents, stocking snow removal supplies and covering outside faucets.
Commercial property maintenance services are available for emergency responses to calls. If there is a problem with a leak a contractor is available to make necessary repairs. If plumbing problems arise, the maintenance crew quickly responds and makes the needed repairs. Heating failure, fire, flood or water pipe breaks are all potential property damaging or life threatening emergencies. Often the maintenance crew is able to respond to an emergency within 4 hours, as compared to hiring an outside contractor which can take from a couple of days or more to respond.
The landscaping and grounds keeping is a part of the commercial property maintenance services as well. A professional landscaper is hired to maintain the landscaping, keeping grounds trimmed in the summer, setting out and taking care of plants and flowers in the spring. The maintenance group sweeps the lot and removes snow and ice from the parking area in the winter. They are responsible for maintaining the appearance of the outside of the building by painting when needed. Planting, trimming and cleaning are necessary to have a good curb appeal for the property. Asphalt or concrete is inspected and repaired for damages.
Commercial property maintenance companies use qualified staff or contractors to maintain your property. They work with a list of vendors who are licensed and insured to provide quality service for the propertys needs. Requests for maintenance are made through routine inspections of the building and grounds, from tenants who request work and regular preventative maintenance. No work is done without the authorization of the manager of the property or the owner.
Maintaining commercial and retail facilities is an ongoing part of owning the property. The maintenance company must prioritize the needs of the repairs. Of course, emergency maintenance is a highest priority. A non working HVAC system will come before a dirty parking lot. The commercial property maintenance company sets the priority of routine repairs and cleanings to fit the budget set by the owner or manager.
The customer and the manager appreciate well maintained properties. A pleasing facility is important for attracting new tenants to your office building and customers to retail facilities.
