Prepare Your Commercial Building for Winter Weather
Are you a business owner? Are you prepared for winter? If so, SERVPRO of Jefferson City would like to offer you some winter maintenance tips for your commercial buildings. Good tips can be valuable in saving you money in the long run.
- Winterize your cooling systems
Drain and winterize the cooling tower if not in use. Also, shut down your chiller or empty the condensate drain tap. If these matters are not taken care of the result could be extreme damage to your equipment.
- Calibrate thermostats
Calibrate your building’s thermostats and lower them to a cooler temperature that is still comfortable for the building occupants. An easy way to save money and energy.
- Inspect your roof
Temperature changes and precipitation can cause problems to building roofs. Be on the lookout for loose shingles or areas where water could collect, resulting in costly leaks.
- Check irrigation systems
Drain your hoses and faucets to prevent broken water lines.
- Repair sidewalks
Seal cracks in sidewalks and paved areas.
- Plan for snow and ice removal
Be prepared for removal. If you don’t have the proper equipment, hire a professional who does. This will benefit in keeping your employees and visitors safe along with prevention of damage to your building.
