As a commercial property owner, the mainstay of your responsibilities is to maintain and tend to the buildings your tenants occupy. This includes routine upkeep, emergency repairs, and plans for future improvements to preserve and offer amenities important to your tenants’ needs. With routine maintenance alone, the checklist of tasks can span roofing, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, structural, landscaping, and the list goes on.
Essential as building maintenance is to your business, as a commercial property owner it’s not the only function requiring your time and attention. Spread yourself too thin and the integrity of your commercial properties could be at risk, which can lead to costly damage and even loss of tenants.
Much like the restoration services industry, facility maintenance is a 24-hour, seven-days a week job that doesn’t allow time off for holidays, family commitments, or other life responsibilities. No matter how well you run your commercial properties, the ability to be everywhere at once simply isn’t possible. One option is to hire a property maintenance team to assist with the required efforts, but keep in mind the amount of time needed to manage such a crew. Instead of letting your properties shoulder the burden of waning attention, consider hiring a facility maintenance provider to lighten the load.
Whether you need a little help here and there, or someone to protect your commercial properties around the clock, facility maintenance providers can often custom tailor their offerings to serve you–and your budget–best. Speaking of budget, if the added expense has been the reason you’ve avoided investing in such a service, consider what your time and peace of mind is worth. With as much benefit to your buildings as a facility maintenance provider can give, you may actually save money in the long run. Here are just a few examples:
It doesn’t take long for a small water leak to turn into big water damage, for example. A facility maintenance provider can respond quickly and effectively to problems on your properties before they become a costly loss.
It takes a lot to keep your building running smoothly, and that requires someone inspecting the interior, exterior, and inner workings of your property on a nearly daily basis. Responding to normal wear and tear is typically less expensive and less stressful than waiting until something breaks completely and can no longer be repaired.
The hazards your commercial properties are exposed to in the spring are very different than those of the winter. Sometimes hiring someone just to respond to landscaping and snow removal is enough to protect your buildings from various types of weather-related damage, not to mention keep your tenants safe from imposing risks.
The old saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of curse,” can definitely applicable to commercial property maintenance. Why wait until something breaks or wears down when a facilities maintenance provider can tend to potential problems before they even occur.
