5 Winter Maintenance Tips for Commercial Buildings

It can be challenging and difficult to properly maintain commercial buildings during the wintertime and, depending on where you live, extreme conditions can cause problems that quickly turn to crises. The weather surely amplifies and exacerbates issues that might be easier to cope with during warmer months, which is why it makes sense to prepare for these cold conditions now, or when the weather is mild.

The pressure washing experts in Warner Robins at Propel Pressure Cleaning offer these 5 Winter Maintenance Tips for Commercial Buildings- and their owners:

1. Check out your Plumbing

If you are responsible for a commercial building, check the plumbing for freezing pipes, exposed cracks, or excess moisture that may have formed. If left unaddressed, this moisture can freeze and cause pipes to burst, which causes costly water damage and headache. Also, keep an eye out for the growth of mold or mildew near wherever there is moisture near the plumbing lines.

2. Inspect Heating Systems

What could be worse than not having heat in your building during the wintertime? This can lead to a whole host of other problems, complaints, and damage, so inspect your heating system thoroughly before the coldest days of winter hit. Check for cracks and inefficiencies in your system, which could be responsible for energy loss and inflated utility costs. Take time to replace air filters, inspect for blockages, and make sure thermostats are working properly, to ensure your heating system works efficiently all winter long.

3. Winterize Your Cooling Systems

Don’t ignore your cooling system during winter months; even though you may not need it right now, there are some ways to winterize so it works efficiently when you need it next spring and summer. Plus, winter is the perfect time to address any repairs before summer months when you need the cooling system to work without a hitch. Empty drain traps and properly shut-down your cooling system units before winter strikes.

4. Be Properly Prepared for Winter Elements

Look around: is your property properly prepared for the winter elements? If you have tenants, staff, or customers, maintain the area to help keep them safe. Remove fall hazards, like ice and snow, from common spaces, walkways, and parking lots. Make a commitment to try snow removal equipment, apply de-icing products to prevent slips, and keep an eye on snow piles to ensure they don’t become hazardous obstacles.

5. Inspect Your Roof

You should know that if your roof is compromised, everything else below will be vulnerable to the elements. Take care to inspect roof shingles, clear any accumulating snow, and completely clear the gutters to avoid ice dams, which can cause expensive roof and property damage. Monitor your insulation to make sure you are well prepared for cold temperatures- and to help curb energy costs.

Our Reviews

While visiting my father in Warner Robins over the Thanksgiving holidays I noticed that it’s been sometime since his house was pressure washed. I thought it would be a nice gift so when I return back to my house I spent some time looking at companies/ reviews in that area and just made a decision based off the reviews. I reached out to Jesse and received a quote within a few minutes. I set up an appointment for a few weeks later. On the day of the appointment they showed up on time and began work. My father was very satisfied with the work done. In his words these guys were very professional. My father plans on retaining their services in the future. Based off my experience setting up the appointment and my father’s feedback I would highly recommend these guys for any and all your pressure washing needs.

Jesse came by one day and gave us a price to do our house, driveway and sidewalks that just floored us. We thought it had to be too good to be true. He floored us again with the job he did. He definitely will be doing our home from now on. Awesome job Jesse!!!

I’ve known Jesse for almost 20 years. He’s an all around good guy and a great father. He’s honest, loyal, hard working, and dedicated. When we got in a pinch with both sides of the family coming in town he really came through for us. What would of taken me days to do, he did in a matter of hours. The house and the walk ways were so clean I had to put on sun glasses to walk outside it was so bright. I don’t recommend a lot of businesses or put my name on the line for people, but I can say with full confidence that I highly recommend Propel Pressure Cleaning. If you need some work done Jesse Meister is the one to call.

Great work, courteous people, on time, and very reasonable pricing. I called & received a quote on Friday. Saturday moring Jesse came out and did a Great job on my driveway, brick mailbox, and back porch. He showed up exactly when he said he would, was nice to my family, and took pride in what he did. When he was done he even asked if I would take a look at the work to ensure it was satisfactory to my needs. I’ll use him again.
