The Importance of Appearance for Your Commercial Property
Everybody knows that first impressions are the most lasting. But the cleanliness and appearance of the exterior of commercial buildings is not always a priority. Of course, health and safety concerns are number one, but after that, matters relating to appearance are often pushed aside.
The exterior of your building sets the tone for what customers expect when they walk inside. If your property is well-maintained, it tells customers, you take pride and value in the products or services you are offering.
Additionally, employees are often happier and more productive in well maintained, clean, and organized workspaces. Investing in the maintenance of a building will often keep you informed and alert to any emerging or potential problems. It is recommended to perform a building inspection once a year to take notes on the appearance and functionality of your commercial building.
SERVPRO of West Erie County Recommends:
- Checking for Chipped Paint: Chipped or peeling paint can dramatically the effect the appearance of your commercial building. A fresh coat of paint can really brighten up the building and make it look more inviting.
- Roof Inspection: If your roof has not been looked at in a while, it is a good idea to have a professional come and inspect it. You do not want to find out you have a roof problem, by walking into a mini lake in your office or building.
- Mechanical Systems: Again, it is better to take preventative care than waiting for a problem to happen. HVAC systems should be serviced at least once a year. You do not want to wait until the middle of November to make sure your furnace works.
- Windows and Glass Doors: Dirty, smeared windows look bad from the outside and the inside. When the sun shines in on a nice August day, customers and employees can see everything. SERVPRO of West Erie County can come clean your windows and have them looking shiny and smudge-free in no time!
