As the weather warms and Spring and Summer inch closer, it is important that your building is ready for business. Now is the time to take care of key maintenance tasks that will keep your property in great condition.
As a customer pulls up to your business, you want them to be pleased with what they see on the exterior. First impressions are important and keeping the outside of your business fresh and neat is a great way to impress new and returning customers. Your outer appearance is just as important as your interior when it comes to maintaining a great reputation.
Just like in a home, dust and mold can build up on the outside and inside of your building. Leaving your exterior dingy may be a turn off to customers as it sends the message that you do not care about these details. A yearly pressure washing of the outside of your building is a great way to freshen the look and appeal to customers. If paint is chipping or your roof is missing shingles, consider taking the time to address these fixes.
Arriving at a business with a lawn that is overgrown and covered in fallen tree branches can be a turn off to potential visitors. You want your building to stand out and landscaping is a great way to accomplish this. Things like fresh cut grass, mulch, seasonal flowers and trimmed trees are all important in the upkeep of a building’s appearance. Hiring landscapers to keep this up throughout the Spring and Summer is a great way to make sure your business will truly shine.
For businesses, preparing for spring means more than just cleaning. Here is a list of items to check on to ensure your business is appealing to customers.
- Inspect your roof for damage
- Clean out gutters and make sure drainage systems are clear
- Check your foundation for any cracks or signs of shifting
- Check sprinkler / fire prevention systems
- If your building has an outdoor deck, porch or entryway, make sure that all walking areas are clear and that all railings and handles are sturdy
