“We always advise our clients to use preventative maintenance for the safety of their teams as well as their facilities,” said MaintenX Roofing Division VP Derrick Barwick. “Each storm is a test of your infrastructure, and you never want to be surprised by a failing roof or overloaded plumbing.”

When Hurricane Elsa formed almost six weeks earlier than the average date of the first Atlantic hurricane, it raised worries of an especially active Hurricane Season. MaintenX International, a leading firm in facilities maintenance and repair, is sending a strong message to businesses that the best way to keep employees safe and businesses functioning is by improving resiliency to severe weather. Catching up on deferred maintenance and taking steps to harden facilities against wind and rain are especially important now.

Founded in Tampa, Florida, where hurricanes and tropical storms are common, MaintenX is no stranger to the dangers of flooding and water intrusion. Water in facilities can cause electrical malfunctions, structural damage, and unhealthy mold, along with operational downtime and expensive remediation.

MaintenX recommends developing and following a preventative maintenance plan, involving regularly scheduled systems checks and repairs, to prevent such damage. Such a plan makes maintenance costs predictable and avoids sudden failures that can take facilities offline or even put occupants at risk.

“We always advise our clients to establish a preventative maintenance plan, for the safety of their teams as well as their facilities,” said MaintenX Roofing Division VP Derrick Barwick. “Each storm is a test of your infrastructure, and you never want to be surprised by a failing roof or overloaded plumbing.”

MaintenX recommends yearly roofing and exterior inspections for all commercial buildings, paying special attention to cracks, expanded joints, and any other areas where water could intrude. In addition, pre- and post-hurricane inspections for those facilities in vulnerable areas are a worthwhile investment.
