You probably already know the importance of maintaining your commercial property. From honouring health and safety commitments to minimising downtime and disruption to business, there are things we can’t let slide when we manage a commercial property.


But what resources do you need to keep in place for effective commercial property maintenance, and how can you make sure your premises don’t fall short?

Electricians

Do you have a reliable electrician for major renovations and minor repairs? As a commercial property owner, it’s your responsibility to ensure the property’s electrical system is safe. That means you need to have any issues resolved quickly – but you also need to have systems inspected every 5 years by a professional.

 

Investing in regular electrical safety inspections and maintenance can help protect your business against the losses associated with electrical fires and related Health & Safety risks. Refer to the Electricity Safety Regulations 2010, where you’ll find the documentation needed on-site to record electrical work, so you can make sure you’re always up to date.

Plumbers

Small plumbing problems have a way of becoming major problems pretty quickly. Partner with a licensed plumbing professional that specialises in commercial properties. Otherwise, you might spend far too much time calling unreliable or overpriced plumbers every time something goes wrong.

 

Your commercial plumber can take care of:

 

  • Plumbing maintenance
  • Fixture installations (like new toilets or pipes)
  • Clearing blocked pipes to keep your utilities flowing smoothly
  • Replacing/repairing leaky or damaged pipes
  • Sewer line repair
  • Septic tank maintenance

Carpenters

Hiring a commercial carpenter is something many business owners overlook. However, commercial buildings need maintenance to keep them safe and looking their best – and no one likes a last-minute scramble to find a qualified carpenter.

 

Carpentry services encompass both the interior and exterior of a building, taking care of everything from windows to doors, floors, decorative aspects, countertops and the build/installation of furniture. And, while there are many similarities, residential and commercial carpenters do vary in their capabilities. They work with different construction materials, use different tools and equipment, and commercial carpenters are familiar with the stricter regulations, permits and codes associated with commercial business projects.

 

So, we don’t recommend calling your neighbour who fancies themselves as a handy person. A commercial carpenter is always the best way to go for business premises.
