Spring Maintenance Priorities
First impressions can make or break customer decisions regarding whether to patronize your business. Tasks that make the most difference as a customer approaches your business are those with which Strategic Grounds is most experienced.
Commercial Building Maintenance
Mold and dust buildup can give a building’s facade a dingy look, offering the implied message that you don’t respect customers or prioritize safety. Pressure washing your building’s exterior is an inexpensive way to put out the message that quality customer service and cleanliness are your focus.
Parking Lot Maintenance and Repair
Lots should be seal-coated to make them look nice, and reduce cracks and damage. If potholes or other major defects have popped up, perhaps repaving is in order. And freshly lined parking spots make your place of business stand out.
Grounds Maintenance: Landscaping Design, Trimming, Lawn Cleanup
An overgrown, messy looking lawn dotted with drooping tree limbs and shrubbery can be a turn-off.
If you want your business to have curb appeal, a spring cleanup of debris that has settled on lawns and landscaped areas is in order. Trim trees and shrubs appropriately to make them attractive., and don’t forget to weed and mulch.
Perhaps a landscaping makeover could get your business site noticed. Regular mowing and trimming throughout the growing season is a must.
More Points for Your Spring Maintenance Checklist
Spring maintenance means more than cleaning and neatening. Checking for needed repairs and routine service is essential too. Following are a few more tips to add to your list:
- Clean leaves from gutters.
- Check drainage systems for leaks or blockage.
- Inspect the building’s roof for signs of damage and schedule repairs or a re-roof if needed.
- If the foundation shows signs of shifting or cracking, perform repairs before the damage becomes serious.
- Check sprinkler systems.
- Examine wood exteriors or trim for signs of weathering. Repaint if needed.
- If your building has an outdoor deck, porch or entryway with an awning, it may need resealing or painting (every 4 to 6 years is the recommended frequency). Re-attach any loose handrails.
