Weather can be unpredictable, especially in colder seasons. The secret to success in upkeeping your property is preparation. Having an established plan makes all the difference when it comes to maintaining a safe and beautiful property.
A property that is maintained on a regular basis saves money on damages that can come from a lack of regular upkeep, presents well to potential customers, and creates a safer environment for others.
Active and regular maintenance of a property is key to a business and having a trusted team to support you makes all of the difference.
Proactive service makes all the difference. When you hire the right team of Landscape Professionals, you are guaranteeing help from their team before you even know you need it.
Snowstorms are an excellent example of an extreme weather condition that can be daunting to prepare for. Having a property maintenance team that has your back all winter long can help reduce stress and keep your property safe for your staff and customers/residents. A team of Landscape Professionals should perform a site inspection to make sure that your property is well-equipped for the storms that winter can bring. These site inspections include checks on pavement lines, signage, potential hazards, surrounding lighting, and more.
Your snow & ice management contract should be well established before winter, so you know you are covered when a storm hits. Your contract should provide you peace of mind all winter long.
Maintaining your property is more than keeping your lawn trimmed and green and your parking lots clear in the winter.
Your commercial maintenance crew should understand that it is not just the physical property itself that they are helping to upkeep, but what the property is used for. It’s not just a lawn that needs to be mowed, it’s a lawn that residents may use to host gatherings. It’s not just a parking lot that needs to be plowed and sidewalks that need to be shoveled. It’s a lot where people should be able to safely park and walk into work, or an office lot where customers should be able to safely navigate.
When looking at your contract, it is important that you look for what is included in the service and how holistic it is. Will your maintenance team have your back all year long? Will they do what is necessary to ensure the health of your lawn and pavement come winter? Active maintenance is a continuous job, it does not end when the seasons' change or the storm is over.
Seasons change and each brings different challenges when it comes to property upkeep. Having a trusted property maintenance team is a great way to make sure that you are best equipped to take on the challenges that an upcoming season can bring.
Your team should value being proactive as opposed to reactive when it comes to delivering a service that ensures a safe environment for you and your customers/residents.
