Why Building Maintenance Should be a Priority

From restaurants to office buildings, commercial businesses are open and thriving, once again! 

Now that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted around the country, first impressions for a business matter. The increased foot traffic and activity in your building means that it’s more important than ever for business owners and property managers to pay close attention to their facility maintenance. 

Now is the time to be proactive in ensuring the longevity and vitality of your commercial property.

Some examples of facility maintenance services include:

  • Checking of electrical features
  • Tune-ups of plumbing systems 
  • Masonry repairs
  • Deep cleaning and disinfection
  • Painting and touch-ups 
  • Roof and shingle improvements
  • Repair of parking lots and walkways 

Facility maintenance is more than just aesthetics. It reflects the care and attention you have to the image of your establishment.

The Importance of Commercial Building Maintenance

Your commercial property is a financial investment and a means for generating revenue for years to come. While business ownership is often a series of ups and downs and variables out of your control, the condition and appearance of your space are something you can manage.

With over five decades of leadership and innovation in the commercial building maintenance industry in the Northeast, Corporate Building Services knows how critical maintenance services are to preserving the integrity of a business. From our experience, here are a few reasons why commercial facility maintenance should be at the forefront of your business priorities.

Preserving Your Image

Exteriors should be damage-free, windows should sparkle, walkways should be safe, so you can greet your clients with a commercial space that says, “WELCOME!” 

When a potential client visits your building, it’s human nature to form an instant opinion about your company. If a restaurant, grocery store, or retail shop appears dirty and rundown, you run the risk of instantly losing customers. If a commercial building looks damaged or disheveled, what message does that send?

The image you project about your business will reflect in the space you keep. Customers are more likely to frequent establishments that take pride in their appearance. Conversely, your product or service may be devalued if your facility looks neglected. 

Meticulously maintained facilities will also put employees at ease and create a pleasant working atmosphere. Research shows that there is a correlation between employee productivity and engagement in well-maintained workspaces.  

From office buildings to movie theatres, contact us to discuss your commercial building maintenance needs.

Commercial Office Building

Keep Occupants Safe & Healthy

In addition to your professional image, regular maintenance services will ensure the health and safety of your employees and guests. From
indoor repairs and flooring care to repairing parking lots, commercial building maintenance keeps everyone that steps into your facility safe.

Neglecting to address various building issues risks injury. Avoidable injuries can land your business in a lawsuit situation that could ultimately cost you your business and reputation. Routine maintenance limits potential liability!  

Another part of facility maintenance is regular cleaning and other janitorial services. The COVID-19 pandemic reinforced the importance of keeping commercial spaces not only clean but disinfected

Reduce Future Costs

Routine maintenance of your commercial facility is a cost savings strategy for your business. Emergency repairs are more expensive than routine care for your building. If you wait until your property is damaged, you may end up paying more than if the issue was detected and addressed before reaching an emergency. 

A plumbing leak detected early is relatively inexpensive to repair versus the damage spreading to the structure of a building. At CBS, we can create a routine plumbing checkup schedule to avoid costly repairs in the future.
