Here in South Central Pennsylvania, the leaves are starting to change and it’s getting cooler as fall draws near. Along with these weather changes we start making changes in our daily routines. We begin spending more time inside and that also means we’re probably getting more work done! This is a good thing for business owners. More time being spent in the office means more productivity. During the fall it becomes more and more difficult to keep that office clean. Here are some fall maintenance tips for business owners to keep their offices clean through the fall.
Buildings with flat rooftops or ones that have gutter systems will collect leaves and debris. When water builds up in drainage systems it increases the risk of water damage and flooding. No business want’s to lose days of work due to a flood in the office. Water damage is a terrible tragedy that many home and business owners deal with every year. The worst thing is, most of the time it could have been prevented by just checking their gutters or drainage systems. If you inspect your gutters and find that leaves and other debris is starting to build up, it’s probably time to have someone clean your gutters.
Many good business owners do what they can to keep their employees happy and productive. Small businesses might enjoy the luxury of leaving the entrance ways or windows open to keep a nice cool breeze blowing through. Unfortunately, during the fall this may become a burden. When the winds start picking up and fallen leaves and debris starts blowing around, there’s a good chance they are going to end up in your building. By keeping your entrance ways closed at all times, you will eliminate leaves from entering your building. It also may be beneficial to place a floor mat at the entrance of your building. Not everybody is going to use it, but for those who do take the time to wipe their feet will help to not track dirt and broken leaves into your building.
The beginning of fall may also be a good time to get your office cleaned. Cooler temperatures means keeping doors and windows closed shut which decreases ventilation and increases dust build-up. There are multiple reasons to keep a clean office. For starters, the cleanliness of your front office plays a huge role in the first impression of your company. You don’t want a customer to enter your facility and see that you’re a bunch of slobs! A good office cleaning can also help to get rid of germs and bacteria lingering around the office. By keeping these germs and bacteria to a minimum, you will have less employees getting sick and calling off.
