5 Maintenance Tips for Your Greater Boston Property

Spring is here, sum­mer is around the cor­ner, and com­mer­cial prop­er­ty main­te­nance is in full swing here in the Greater Boston Area.

Proac­tive, knowl­edge­able main­te­nance is always cru­cial, but espe­cial­ly here in New Eng­land where our wild weath­er and tem­per­a­ture extremes put every sur­face to the test.

As you put togeth­er a plan for pro­tec­tion and enhance­ment, here are a few items you def­i­nite­ly should consider.

How Many of These Items Are On Your Spring­time Main­te­nance List?

  • Exte­ri­or Paint­ing - Even if a full repaint isn’t nec­es­sary, main­te­nance paint­ing will keep your facility’s fin­ish­es strong, healthy, and look­ing their best. Ongo­ing care also helps your paint and coat­ings last longer, and lessens the labor-inten­sive prep work need­ed to res­ur­rect neglect­ed sur­faces. A lit­tle TLC is the most cost-effec­tive strat­e­gy you can employ.
  • Pres­sure Wash­ing — Win­ter leaves a mark, and this often includes an unat­trac­tive residue on your sid­ing, walk­ways, hard­scapes, park­ing lots, and com­mu­ni­ty spaces. Pro­fes­sion­al pres­sure wash­ing removes any cor­ro­sive buildup, restor­ing a fresh look and pro­long­ing the life of your exte­ri­or paint.
  • Caulk­ing — As you check your exte­ri­or paint, take the time to ensure that all caulk­ing around win­dows, doors, and joints is in good repair. Cracked, brit­tle caulk can lead to mois­ture intru­sion, pests, pre­ma­ture decay, and lost effi­cien­cy. If your prop­er­ty is tilt-up con­struc­tion with con­crete pan­els, it’s extreme­ly impor­tant to check the caulk between those pan­els as well.
  • Rust Removal and Encap­su­la­tion — Here in Greater Boston (and all of New Eng­land), our met­al sur­faces are con­stant­ly doing bat­tle with cor­ro­sion. Rather than wait until a prob­lem can’t be ignored, invest in rou­tine rust removal, encap­su­la­tion, and indus­tri­al paint­ing. This needs to be com­plet­ed indoors as well! For a real-life exam­ple, take a look at this project we com­plet­ed in Seabrook, NH, last year.
  • Con­crete Repair — Worn, dam­aged floor­ing pos­es a threat in a com­mer­cial envi­ron­ment. Not only is it a haz­ard dur­ing your every­day oper­a­tions, but dam­age is also not a sta­t­ic event — it con­tin­ues and grows, even if you don’t imme­di­ate­ly real­ize it. Invest in pro­fes­sion­al floor repair and treat­ment before the prob­lem accelerates.

Indus­tri­al-Grade Spring Cleaning

Spring clean­ing isn’t just for your garage or basement.

On a com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al scale, clean­ing and degreas­ing pro­vides sev­er­al key benefits:

  • Assists with main­tain­ing safe­ty and health standards
  • Allows for eas­i­er equip­ment main­te­nance and repairs
  • Reduces work­place hazards
  • Proac­tive clean­ing and care reduces the risk of dam­age and decay
