Easy Tricks To Keep Your Property Healthy During The Winter

January 31, 2020

 

     

Winters here in South England can be harsh. Cold temperatures, high winds, heavy rains and flooding can cause expensive damage to your commercial property. In fact, a single winter storm has the ability to cause £10,000’s worth of damage, leaving many commercial building owners looking for an estate maintenance company that can make the repairs their buildings needs as quickly as possible.

 

     As an estate manager, you already know just how difficult and expensive it can be to reach a repairman during, or immediately after a winter storm. This could mean waiting even longer to have any water damage to your building repaired. If you own a block of flats with residents inside, or an office building full of workers, it can make the situation even worse.

 

Give Your Property The Important Maintenance It Needs Before Winter

 

     To avoid these costly repairs, giving your property the important maintenance it needs before the cold and snow of winter set in is important. But where do you start and where should your focus be? If you are looking for ways to keep your retail or commercial property healthy this winter keep reading as we share some of our favourite tips on how to do just that. Let’s get started:

 

Top Winter Property Maintenance Tips

 

Check Your Gutters And Drainage- even before winter arrives, be sure to check your gutters (if your building has them) and the drainage around the outside of your buildings. The additional rain and possible snowfall during the winter months can cause flooding if your drainage doesn’t flow away from your building properly.

 

Weatherproof Exterior Pipes- pipes that run along an exterior wall should be covered with a layer of pipe insulation to prevent them from freezing. A frozen pipe can leaks enough water to flood your building’s lower level in less than 30 minutes.

 

Seal Leaky Doors And Windows- when it comes to winter building maintenance, nothing is as effective at reducing energy usage and eliminating drafts as sealing up any leaks around doors and windows. Most commercial buildings that were built recently often have fewer drafts than their much older counterparts, so it is a good idea to have your building inspected before the cold weather sets in.
