Preventive Maintenance Checklist for Your Office Space
If you own office space, you’ll know that it is wonderful to have your own space for your team to work together undisturbed. However, you might also know that office spaces have a lot of wear and tear on them. If you want to keep your space in good shape, here is a simple checklist for your office space that contains a few different kinds of preventative maintenance tasks that you should keep up with.
Check Your Pipes
First off, you need to regularly check your pipes and plumbing system. Damage done to pipes, such as freezing, cracking, or rusting, can cause significant problems in your office space. These types of issues can lead to mold, leaking, and/or serious water damage. These problems are even more common in cold areas. Especially if you live in an area that experiences cold freezes in the winter, your pipes and plumbing are at a higher risk of freezing. So, by regularly checking up on your pipes and plumbing, you’ll be able to prevent any of these serious issues. Make sure to contact a plumber if you start seeing signs of leaking or breakage.
Protect Your Floors
Next, you should make sure to protect your floors. A lot of office spaces have concrete flooring, perhaps with very thin, industrial carpeting, because flooring in office spaces gets very worn down. Spots where furniture or rolling chairs have been, as well as common walkways, experience a lot of wear and tear. Additionally, if there are places in your office where water is pooling, your floor will probably crack. However, painting your concrete floor can protect it if it frequently gets exposed to water.
Maintain Utility Accessories
Finally, no preventive maintenance checklist for your office would be complete without a look at the maintenance closet. There are a lot of utility accessories that need to be maintained in an office space. Most offices have elevators, HVAC systems, and more systems that can develop problems over time. Make sure that you are having electrical experts check up on your different utilities to make sure that everything is running smoothly. This will help prevent you from having to replace these systems for an expensive bill.
