Today marks the first day of fall and with it comes warmer clothing, hot apple cider and autumn’s chilly temperatures. Now is a great time to start thinking about all of the chores that winter brings with it: putting out de-icer, cleaning up carpets that have salt and dirt all over them and making sure your commercial property’s heating system is ready for the winter. We offer office cleaning in Burnsville, and we can help you get your business winter-ready. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do to start preparing.
Take a walk around the perimeter of your building. Do you have any outdoor lighting? Most commercial properties do, so take a close look at the lights and see if any of them need to be repaired. Check for frayed or torn wires and broken fixtures or light bulbs. Make sure these get fixed before we turn the clocks back and it starts getting dark in the mid-afternoon hours.
If your commercial property has any outdoor spigots for water, like for a garden hose, make sure those lines are empty and turned off. This will help when the temperatures drop below freezing. You will not have to worry about burst pipes flooding your office and necessitating a few extra trips from our office cleaning company.
Is your HVAC equipment ready? Go and inspect your furnace or boiler to see if any obvious repairs are needed. And, if need be, check and change the filter. You should call a professional HVAC repair company to inspect your heating system to ensure it is in good working order. You don’t want to turn the heating system on when it’s cold out only to discover it is blowing out cool air (or none at all!).
Finally, stock up on some de-icer for your building’s sidewalks and parking lot. Make sure you have plenty because, as we all know, Minnesota winters can get quite cold and icy!
Remember that during the winter months, carpeting and flooring take a beating because of people tracking in de-icer chemicals, ice, mud and dirt. A professional office cleaning company like All Source can come to your commercial building on a regular basis to make sure your floors, and all other parts of your office, are as spotless as possible.
