May is here, and with it, thoughts of sunny weather and spring flowers. This month, MaintenX encourages facility managers to consider what needs to be done to welcome the warmer, wetter season.

“Spring is a great time to reset for the rest of the year,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “At MaintenX, we encourage all our clients to invest a small amount of time and energy to make preparations and updates now, before they must be done in a hurry and at a higher cost. We always encourage preventative maintenance.”

MaintenX offers spring cleaning tips to help facility managers get ahead on the season:

Let the Sunshine In: After the winter cold, wind, and weather, your windows may be dirty. Add a window session to the spring cleaning list for your building to ensure you’re getting the most natural light possible. This can save you from having to turn on as many lights during the day. Make sure to clean both the outside and inside of your windows for the best results.

Stay Safe and Dry: Spring months mean more rain and water, so it’s smart for facility managers to be prepared. Use absorbent entrance mats to reduce the amount of water and dirt tracked into your facility, as well as reduce the possibility of an employee or customer slipping. If you want to add a thoughtful touch, provide umbrella stands with drip bags near entrances.

All Systems Go: As you switch your air system from hot to cold, it’s wise to perform preventative maintenance. By testing for HVAC issues early, you won’t have to experience uncomfortable temperatures in your building. Additionally, this is a great time of year to check and clean your vents and ducts. Pests and mold can make an unwelcome home in your unit over winter months.

Lush Landscape: One of the most exciting parts of spring is watching plants burst back to life. Take time to assess any damage or hazards that occurred during the cold months. This may be new holes or cracks in sidewalks, loose pavement stones, dead branches, or lingering plant debris. Facility managers should arrange to have hazards cleared, either by maintenance staff or a team of professionals, like the technicians at MaintenX.
