Spring is here! It is time to prepare your commercial property for the season. As your property manager, Capital Rivers follows a thorough list to ensure that your property is in tip-top shape for the warmer weather.
Check out our spring checklist for commercial property management that can help you get ready for this season:
Inspect the exterior of the property:
We walk around the property and check for any damage caused by winter weather months. Visually check for any cracks on the exterior of the building and the sealant around all the windows. Assess the asphalt and concrete condition for any repair work that should be budgeted or completed during the warmer months.
Clean gutters and downspouts:
After the rain comes spring flowers and weeds growing in the gutters. We will inspect the roof conditions and downspouts to be sure these are cleared of debris.
Check HVAC systems:
As the temperature starts to rise, it’s essential to ensure that your HVAC systems are functioning correctly and maintained regularly. We will schedule a preventative maintenance inspection with an HVAC professional to make sure everything is in working order.
Spring is the perfect time to get your landscaping in order. With the increasing price of water, we create a long term plan for replacing grass areas with drought resistant landscape. This is also a crucial time to inspect all irrigation systems before the warmest months of the year.
Check for pest infestations:
Winter weather can drive pests indoors, so it’s important to check for signs of infestation. Look for droppings, nests, and chewed wires or insulation. If this is an issue in your space we will get the problem fixed as fast as possible.
Schedule pressure washing:
Winter weather can leave a layer of grime on the exterior of the building. We can schedule a power washing to remove any dirt and debris.
Inspect and repair parking lots:
Colder weather can cause damage to parking lots from rain, snow and sitting puddles. Look for potholes, cracks, and other damage and repair as needed. We have a network of pavers that we have trusted relationships with that will get your property looking brand new.
Check fire safety systems:
Make sure that all smoke detectors and fire alarms are working correctly. Replace batteries and schedule any necessary repairs.
Schedule window cleaning:
Winter weather can leave windows dirty with hard water spots. If needed, we will schedule a professional window cleaning to give your property a fresh, clean look.
Deep clean common areas:
Spring is the perfect time for a deep clean of common areas. We hire a professional cleaning company to clean carpets, seal floors, remove cobwebs, and much more.
Capital Rivers follows this list so you can ensure that your investment is ready for the warmer weather. A well-maintained property not only looks better, but also provides a safer and welcoming environment for tenants and visitors.
