Winter is right around the corner, and building managers need to make sure they do their due-diligence in order to keep their buildings in good condition before the bad weather hits. That means going through the hallways with ladder carts filled with tools and checking for things that need to be fixed up around the halls.
According to the Daily Herald, the fall season is the perfect opportunity to check the carpeting to make sure the matting is in good condition. This will help ensure that salt from the winter weather will not be able to break through underneath, ruining the floors.
Additionally, take a look at the lighting. As the news provider points out, as the season is particularly dark, it can be hazardous to people if the building is not well lit. Be sure to keep extra lightbulbs in your ladder cart, as well as any tools you might need to unscrew light fixtures.
It’s not just the interior of the structure that building managers need to pay attention to, but also the exterior as well. According to Facility Dude, be sure to take a look at the roof to ensure that there is no danger of leaks. This problem can only get worse once the first snow falls.
