If you have commercial property, then you know how important it is to your business that it looks good from the outside. Your two basic options are to have a crew that you have inside the company that does your commercial care and cleaning, or you have a company that you can outsource it to. Both options have pros and cons.
Commercial care and cleaning have many parts. There is the matter of lawn care. Then you need to figure out how to wash the exterior of your building. You might need to have some way to maintain landscaping plans year round. And then finally, there are the parking lots outside areas that have to be cleaned regularly. All of these maintenance concepts have to be part of your central business plan.
The single biggest thing that will make your business look better or worse from the outside is how well you take care of the lawn. If you don’t mow the lawn, trim along sidewalks and pathways, and generally keep your grass looking clean, it makes your business look bad before people even walk in the front door. Unless you have a lawn care division of your company, this means you probably have to hire an outside company to do the heavy work for you.
When was the last time you did a hard-core cleaning of the outside of your commercial building? If it hasn’t been recently, take a good hard look at what your building looks from the outside. Does it represent the image of your company that you want to present? Are the windows clean on the outside? Does the roof look well-maintained? If it doesn’t look as good as you wanted to, then it’s time to do a powerful external washing to get all the dirt and cried off of your building. Sometimes this means hiring a power washing crew to bring in their specialized equipment and knock all the grime off.
The most part, people don’t have a great idea of how to do commercial landscaping. It’s not a skill that comes naturally. So it’s no surprise that if you want to maintain commercial landscaping around your building, you have to hire professionals to do it. Landscaping goes above and beyond your typical lawn care, and starts adding and things like trees, patios, gardens, and other decorations.
Parking Lots and Outside Areas
It’s a much different experience going to a piece of commercial property when you can park in a lot that is clean and free of debris than if you go to one that’s overgrown with weeds and has cracks and fissures all over the place. If you make sure that you maintain your parking lot consistently, you won’t have to do extensive repairs later that cost a lot more money.
