As cold weather approaches, business owners should consider the following tips to help avoid hazards that become more common as the weather cools.
Schedule a heating system tune-up. Waiting until the weather is freezing to schedule a heating inspection leaves you open to system failures at the worst time. Identifying potential problems with the system in the fall will not only ensure everyone's comfort, but will also minimize the potential for fire, smoke, explosion or other major issues resulting from lack of maintenance.
Schedule a pipe inspection. Inspecting pipes during the fall is the best way to ensure they won't freeze and burst in the winter, which causes costly property damage and business interruption.
Schedule tree maintenance. Pruning during the fall is ideal, because it can help improve the structural integrity of trees in anticipation of heavy snow, ice or wind.
