Preparing For Winter Months Obviously good commercial building maintenance is necessary throughout the year, but it’s particularly vital to prepare for the winter months by ensuring you have carried out all repairs, inspections and maintenance jobs.
There’s no doubt that since its introduction over forty years ago, Health and Safety in the workplace has changed and evolved considerably.
When you’re running a business time is precious, and at a premium. It’s tempting to think that because your premises facilities are running as normal, you have no real maintenance concerns; unfortunately, it’s possible that this assumption could become an expensive – and even dangerous – mistake.
Poor ventilation is a problem that most individuals do not realise that they have in their buildings. With poor ventilation, your commercial building can easily turn from a relaxing and safe place to an uncomfortable and unhealthy one.
An air conditioning system that is well maintained can provide your workplace or office with many benefits. It regulates temperature, which helps keep your employees and you happy and productive. Regular maintenance, however, is important because a damaged air conditioning system can have negative effects. Some of these effects are immediate and others deadly.
After the long hot summer, as temperatures drop, is your home and business capable of carrying you through the winter months with no major issues?

We’ve all heard the saying ‘Prevention is better than cure’, but what does this mean in terms of planned preventative maintenance of buildings?
Are you getting the best possible service from your air conditioner? Very often, your system sends you a sign of an issue before breaking down.
