The Importance of Routine Maintenance

Avoiding Surprise Breakdowns

The last thing anyone wants during the holidays is an unexpected breakdown of critical systems. Scheduling preventive maintenance for your HVAC and other essential systems can help you avoid these unwanted surprises, ensuring that your facilities run smoothly.

Incorporating sustainable facility practices can help reduce your environmental footprint and save on operational costs. Energy-efficient lighting provides consistent, high-quality illumination, creating a more comfortable and productive environment for occupants. Similarly, energy-efficient heating systems maintain a consistent temperature while using less energy, ensuring that your facility remains a comfortable place to be, even during the chilliest of seasons.

Weathering the Winter - Be Prepared for Snow and Ice

Snow and Ice Management Strategies

The winter months can bring challenges, especially in regions prone to snow and ice. Discuss snow and ice management strategies, including pre-snow preparations and efficient removal techniques, to ensure the safety and accessibility of your facilities.

As a facility manager, your preparations for the winter season should begin long before the first snowflake falls. Here's a guide to help you get started:

1. Weather Monitoring: Keep a close eye on weather forecasts. Early knowledge of impending snow or ice events allows you to mobilize your resources and plan your responses efficiently.

2. Contracts in Place: Establish contracts with reliable snow removal and de-icing service providers. Make sure they are ready to respond promptly when the need arises.

3. Safety Supplies: Stock up on safety supplies such as salt, sand, and other de-icing materials to keep walkways and parking areas safe.

4. Communication Plan: Develop a communication plan to keep facility occupants informed about snow and ice management protocols, including designated safety zones and parking instructions.
