3 Ways to Keep Your Facility Safe This Winter

Shoveling your driveway isn’t the only winter chore you have to worry about. Cold weather can affect your business, too. Winter storms and freezing temperatures don’t mix well when it comes to workplace safety. So, how do you keep your facility warm, protected from the elements, and safe for employees and customers? The cleaning and disinfecting experts at ServiceMaster TBS Division put together our top three tips:

Check your HVAC system.

Most people don’t clean their HVAC filter as frequently as they should. During the winter months, this is especially dangerous, as it’s the time of year when they should be changed most often. Unchanged HVAC filters are especially dangerous, too, because they could lead to power outages or clogs, not to mention the recirculation of harmful allergens. Additionally, the increased usage of air ducts and vents during the winter means more dust and dirt accumulates. Our cleaning professionals are here to keep your facility safe during the winter months. We change your HVAC filter as often as necessary and ensure your air ducts and vents are as good as new.

Clean floors and carpets more frequently.

Floors are one of the first things guests see when they enter your business and facility, making it crucial that they are always in tip-top shape. Unfortunately, during the winter months, your floors and carpet are at high risk of being damaged. Ice melt salt and ice tracked in from outside create scratches, stains and build-up that can be hard to remove. Icy floors mean slippery floors, as well, which could be hazardous for those who walk through your doors. Our cleaning experts clean commercial floors using a slip-resistant solution that prevents injury. They also deep clean all floors and carpet regularly to ensure they look good year-round.

Make your windows shine.

Heavy snow can make windows look dirty inside and out. Condensation from frost can lead to windows having a discolored appearance and can increase the potential for mold. Additionally, sleet or ice melt salt can cause permanent glass damage that is expensive to repair. Luckily, our cleaning professionals guarantee window washing services that will not only exceed your expectations but will keep windows looking their best so you can have peace of mind.
