The start of each new season provides an opportunity to do a comprehensive walkthrough of your facility. Take this time to evaluate the state of your facility across the board. Identify any potential issues before they emerge. But also think ahead.
Landscaping: Clean up, spruce up, and green up
Your landscaping can have a significant impact on how people perceive your facility—both employees and visitors alike. A well-maintained landscape can make any building look more inviting. Spring is a time when your landscaping needs a lot of attention.
Windows: Let there be more light in your facility
When you have all your windows cleaned, it’s often like going from standard definition TV to HD. Entire rooms can brighten up, positively impacting the mood of everyone in your facility. For best results, be sure to clean both the exterior and interior of all your windows.
3. Carpet: Go deep to remove accumulated dirt
It will leave your carpet looking renewed and help extend the life of your carpet.
4. Upholstery: Don’t forget to refresh your office furniture
It’s not just your carpets that need a deep cleaning; it’s your upholstery too.
Don’t make the common mistake of overlooking your facility’s furnishings with your spring-cleaning efforts. Whether you have upholstered or leather furniture, a professional cleaning will leave it looking less old and dusty and more vibrant.
5. AC/HVAC: Prepare your system to stay cool in the heat
It's always a good idea to ensure your unit is running at total efficiency. You’ll want to test your equipment by running it for a while to make sure everything’s in working order.
In addition, now is the time to clean out all your vents and ducts and remove dust from all those seldom-cleaned nooks and crannies in your unit. You’d be surprised how many buildings find mold or pest infestations when they do this. With AC, it’s wise to take precautions now to prevent a system meltdown on a stiflingly hot July day.
6. Pest Management: Keep bugs from swarming your facility
As nature is reborn in the spring, so is the pest population. Whether it’s ants, termites, spiders, or mosquitos, pests can cause big problems for commercial facilities. Dealing with major infestations can shut down buildings for days or even weeks. Like most things in facility management, the best approach to pest management is a proactive one.
Know what pests you need to be on the lookout for in your area, and have your building sprayed to keep those troublesome pests out.
