Routine commercial cleaning and maintenance are more than just an appearance, it is about making sure your commercial property is well-maintained, in working order and is free from unsightly and dangerous damage.
It is about fixing the problem at an early detection stage rather than leaving it until it is at a point of no return. For example, if you had a leak, it would be relatively cheap and quick to fix. Whereas if you were to fix it after water damage has occurred, or there has been damage to the structural integrity of the building, the repair will become much more expensive and time consuming (or worse, affect worker’s ability to be in the building and do their job).
Why Should you care about building maintenance?
Routine maintenance is about saving yourself money in the long term by:
- Fixing it straight away:
If you fix it straight away, your costs will be lower than if you had to call out a maintenance repairer in an emergency situation. Regular maintenance can also extend your property’s life expectancy and prevent it from depreciation.
- Limiting your liability:
When you don’t upkeep your premise, your liability will increase. Things like poorly kept grounds (i.e. walkways) can cause injury to others and it is your duty of care to keep these grounds safe.
- Creating a safe space:
Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a phenomenon affecting building occupants who claim to experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified.
- Caring about your image:
It is a known fact that run down or unmaintained buildings are less appealing to the consumer. It sends a message to the consumer that you do not care about your business. A building that is well cared for sends a positive message.
Your commercial property is a long-term investment. Therefore, it is essential to protect your business profitability by having routine maintenance.
