Industrial Building Maintenance You Might Have Forgotten About
It’s important to perform regular maintenance on all buildings, but especially industrial buildings. Industrial buildings tend to have more wear and tear than the average, simply due to the nature of the industrial work. Performing regular maintenance on the building is vital in making sure it stays well kept, so it can stand the test of time and remain an efficient and valuable facility for work. You or your company has probably invested a ton of cash on this building, so its important to keep it maintained to see continued returns on your investment. Below are three important maintenance routines that are often forgotten, but should be checked or performed at least once every season.
- Exterior Painting: Redoing the exterior painting on your building might seem like a no-brainer, but it is often forgotten or put off until the very last minute. Repainting the exterior of your building will help refresh your shield against UV damage, wind, mold, and mildew. The many different coatings on your building might have a lifespan that is reaching its end. Not to mention, a fresh paint job simply makes your building stand out and shine more! It is important to remember to refresh that shield!
- Concrete Polishing: The flooring in your industrial building gets a rough beating season after season. Workers trekking through the building tracking gunk, dirt, and mud wears down the concrete floors, along with the coatings. It is important to frequently clean up this gunk, refresh the coatings, and prevent further destruction to the concrete.
- Roof Rejuvenation: Looking up might be the last thing you think of when performing maintenance on your industrial building, but it is important to remember the roof! Through the seasons, the roof carries the load of snow, rain, dirt, UV rays, and takes a beating from other weather conditions. As with the floors, it’s important to make sure your coatings on the roof stay fresh and clean. Remember to clean your roof and perform regular coating sessions to make sure your roof is able to protect the building from the elements of the outdoors.
