With the holiday season around the corner, it’s time to prepare your facility for an influx of shoppers. MaintenX International wants to help local Tampa companies get ready for the rush by thinking ahead about the safety and comfort of customers and employees.

“The holiday shopping rush is a wonderful time for increased business and sales,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “Facilities should perform preventative maintenance early so they don’t experience a costly breakdown at the height of the season.”

MaintenX International has been helping local businesses with holiday preparation and maintenance for more than 30 years. Here are some tips to help be sure you can enjoy all the season has to offer:

Don’t Catch a Chill: Be sure to perform preventative maintenance on your HVAC system in advance. November and December can bring erratic weather so it’s best to be ready. Consider bringing in a professional to service your system, change filters, clear drip pans, and help ensure your building stays at a comfortable temperature.

Watch your Step: With increased foot traffic, floor mats can help increase safety and decrease wear-and-tear on your floors. Placing absorbent mats on both sides of your entryway can help prevent slippage, trap dirt and moisture, and creates a welcoming and professional look. You can even customize your mats with your logo or a seasonal greeting.

Stay Merry and Bright: Lighting makes a notable difference in the way your facility looks. A well-lit exterior helps customers feel safe and welcome, while proper interior lighting allows your products to be clearly visible. Proper lighting also provides a level of security, deterring crime and allowing people to see inside, should a potential burglar enter your building.

Pretty Plants: Plants that grew quickly over the summer months or lost their leaves in the fall can become unsightly hazards closer to the holidays. Be sure to trim back branches or shrubs that may over grown over walkways. Liven up entrances with evergreens like holly or cheery, colorful poinsettias. A well-manicured landscape will leave a great impression on your customers.
