How to Prepare Commercial Properties for the Cooler Months

Commercial properties require extra attention during season changes. Especially during the winter, cold temperatures can damage commercial property. This can result in costly repairs, unhappy tenants, or a significant decreases in the property’s value. It is important to note that even vacant properties must be prepared for the cooler months. Commercial properties are an investment that must be protected year round.

Here are a few tips to ensure your commercial property is protected during the cooler months:

  • Keep your heaters on a low setting, even if there are currently no tenants. During the winter, the cold air can cause the pipes to freeze and break. Repairing broken pipes costs way more than a low heating bill.
  • Seal gaps around windows and doors. These gaps can let cold air into your property during the winter and increase the heating bill.
  • Constantly check and clean your gutters. During autumn months, leaves and other debris can fall and clog gutters. This can lead to water accumulation which can cause water damage and other issues. 
  • Protect sprinklers, spigots and irrigation systems. If left exposed these systems have the potential to become irreparable. Outside plumbing must be protected.
