Common Issues That Could Affect Your Commercial Building
Keeping your business or commercial property safe and sound is important to you. Additionally, the outward appearance dictates how the public views your business. But small issues can turn into larger ones if not taken care of soon enough.
We have highlighted some of the issues that occur most frequently in commercial buildings. When you have some time, inspect your building for these issues. Should you find any of these, do your best to get them fixed in a timely manner. Not addressing them soon enough could result in costly damage happening down the road.
Leaks - Whether you have a leak in your roof, foundation, or pipes, water can accumulate in areas of your building. That can lead to rotting wood, foul odors, and mold growth.
Asbestos - Although not used much anymore, older buildings may still have asbestos present. Get your building inspected.
Fire Safety Regulations - Make sure that your fire extinguishers are up to date and are in working order. Check your sprinkler system to ensure that in the event of a fire, they will work as intended.
Electrical Faults - If you have older wiring in your building, you should have it checked for faults. If you have ever had a rodent problem, you should also have your wiring checked. Mice and rats tend to chew on wires, leaving them exposed and more likely to start a fire.
