In springtime, most property managers think about doing some deep cleaning and giving their building a little extra attention, but sometimes the summer season gets overlooked. The truth is that summer is a great time to tackle some ongoing maintenance projects at your commercial property and to help make sure it stays in good condition all year round.
If you don’t already have a summer maintenance to-do list, now is the time to make one. Here are a few projects that are ideal for your summer maintenance checklist.
You probably clean the interior of your windows regularly, but it’s also important to wash the outside of your windows a couple of times a year. This will help keep your property looking fresh and will increase the amount of natural light inside.
You need good weather for washing windows, and this is one reason summer can be an ideal time to do it. Warm days with lots of sunshine is a perfect time to schedule window cleaners and to make sure that you’re maximizing the light in your building.
Clean and Inspect Roof, Gutters, and Spouts
Spring storms can be hard on your roof and gutters, and summertime is a good time to make sure that gutters are clear and your roof is in good condition. When doing this you should:
Inspect gutters and spouts and clear them of any leaves or debris. Gutters and spouts are key for drainage, and any backup can lead to problems and flooding.
Remove any limbs or debris from the roof.
Check the roof for signs of wear and tear or broken or damaged shingles. Promptly repair any damaged areas to avoid water damage.
Freshen Up the Paint
Fresh paint can have a big impact on your property and can make the difference between looking drab and rundown or looking bright and fresh. This means it’s important to freshen up paint periodically. Summer is a good time to inspect your property and identify areas that need to be painted. If the exterior needs any touch-ups, summer is the perfect time to do it to minimize weather delays.
Your property’s landscaping hopefully looks green and lush in the summer. Even if it’s looking great, summer is a good time to do some necessary cleaning, pruning, and touching up to your outdoor spaces. Prune trees, shrubs, and greenery to avoid having things overgrown and to make sure that your landscaping isn’t hanging over the building or covering walkways.
Do Some Deep Cleaning Inside
Even if you did a big spring clean, it might be time for some more deep cleaning inside. Here are a few things to consider:
Wash carpets to get rid of stains and moisture.
Deep clean bathrooms, specifically addressing any mold or mildew buildup.
Wash upholstery to keep it looking new and inviting.
