Keeping your air conditioner and heating system maintained is a great way to make sure it doesn’t break down when you need it most. Well-maintained HVAC systems will operate more efficiently than those that are not serviced on a regular basis. Aim to have your system inspected at least twice a year. Don’t forget to have air filters changed at least once every one to three months.
It is recommended that visual inspections be performed quarterly on automatic fire sprinkler systems. Make sure all inspections, repairs and maintenance services are documented and filed. Always maintain access to and around the fire sprinkler riser so that it can be quickly serviced and inspected as needed. Regular fire sprinkler service should be arranged at least once per year, as well as all fire alarm systems.
When roofing fails unexpectedly, fixing it can put a huge strain on your business finances. Save yourself the financial stress by implementing a roof asset management program. This program should include twice annual roof inspections (or more often, if you live in an area with frequent severe storms). Make sure all flashings and roof-to-wall connections are thoroughly sealed.
Having all your major building systems checked regularly is a necessary part of business ownership. To maximize safety and keep your building operating properly, implement a maintenance schedule for all the major systems in your building. If possible, schedule automatic, recurring maintenance services so you don’t have to try and remember when each of your building’s systems needs to be maintained.
