With everything else on your list as a commercial property owner or manager, both in terms of your time and money, it can be hard to find a place to fit property maintenance in. You might think that you could save money by doing it yourself—why hire a service when you can take care of it in-house? Depending on what you need done, especially across multiple properties, there are reasons that you might want to hire an outside property maintenance company, like Command7. Take a look at what goes into property maintenance and what you can get out of the deal.
A commercial property maintenance company is one that’s equipped to take care of the unique challenges that commercial buildings and properties face. These companies are teams of professionals from across the spectrum who are hired to do everything from repairing damages to upgrading and improving the property. Here is a list of some of the things that a maintenance service could help your business with:
- Lawn, tree, bush, and shrub care
- Storm clean-up
- Snow and ice removal
- Cleaning, repairing, and maintaining parking lots
- Pest control and prevention
- Repairing, inspecting, and maintaining HVAC systems, electrical systems, and plumbing fixtures
- Painting inside and outside
- Locksmith services
What this Means for You
Only good things can come out of being proactive about maintaining your property. By keeping the outside of your property looking beautiful, you can increase your brand value, make a good first impression on new customers, and potentially increase the value of the facility itself. Keeping everything clean and well-maintained keeps pests away, ensures that your property stays free of pollutants, and even makes sure that you comply with local laws about maintaining your building. Above all else, though, is that preventing breaks before they start is the ultimate goal of maintenance—you’re saving money in the long run by making sure you take care of things now.
Advantages of Hiring Someone Else
Some of those things might look easy enough to do in-house. Why hire an outside team to take care of these things for you? Even though there is a financial investment, your business will earn it back with what you save. Hiring a property maintenance company is a cost-effective way to make sure that you don’t have any property management headaches in the future. With outside professionals, you’re getting efficient, knowledgeable teams that have a lot of practice doing jobs quickly and well and will bring that experience to you. An outside company means that you won’t have to oversee a maintenance crew within your business on top of everything else that you do. If a repair somehow goes wrong, it’s best to have a team that’s prepared to deal with it available rather than having to deal with it yourself or hiring someone to do a more expensive repair.
Keep in mind that your time is money. Hiring an outside company will be an investment upfront, but all of the time that you would have spent organizing maintenance crews would be best spent at expanding your business. A business is supposed to make money for you, so let it make that money, and leave the maintenance to people like the team at Command7.
