Why Hire a Professional for Your Commercial Facility Maintenance?

by U.S. Facility Solutions Office Facility Management Company

It is hard enough to keep track of scheduled maintenance for your commercial building's interior, but keeping track of external maintenance needs can be a hassle. It is, nonetheless, necessary — failing to keep up with business exterior maintenance can have a negative impact on the building's appearance and potentially cause major structural damage. Fortunately, you can outsource this aspect of your facility maintenance to professionals.

In-House Exterior Maintenance Is No Joke

Exterior maintenance involves a lot more than placing a welcome mat at the building entrance. It is a comprehensive list of potential needs that may affect employees, visitors, and customers at any time. Furthermore, during extreme weather conditions such as winter, exterior maintenance becomes an absolute nightmare. As a facility manager, you must know when to clean the façade, how to clean up after a storm, how to keep the paint looking new, and how to give customers a favorable image of the business. Unfortunately, this means that you may need to double your in-house staff. Working outside comes with its own sets of challenges, such as temperature extremes that will affect your workers and almost certainly need the use of specialized tools and equipment.

Simplify Your Commercial Exterior Maintenance by Outsourcing It

Outsourced exterior maintenance services can help you save a lot of money on an often-overlooked aspect of building maintenance. But it is not just about cost savings. Leaving commercial exterior maintenance in the hands of a professional offers numerous advantages for businesses of all sizes. Have you ever heard of the phrase "eating with your eyes first"? Commercial exterior maintenance works on the same principle. Your commercial building is probably the first thing customers see when they visit your business. It is safe to say that the exterior condition sets the foundation for their overall experience with your business. Even providing the best customer service cannot compensate for your dilapidated and unsightly building exterior. Consider some of the most important advantages of outsourcing your business exterior maintenance.

  • Professional facility maintenance companies can offer you their services at a significantly lower cost due to economies of scale. They have many people on the payroll specializing in specific building maintenance tasks — they can also offer commercial handyman services. This means that they can do everything (and more) that your in-house building maintenance crew can do… only at a lower cost.
  • Professional facility maintenance companies have higher purchasing power. They already have all the latest and greatest tools and equipment, saving your company money on unnecessary (and very expensive) equipment purchases.
  • You can be confident that your facility's exterior maintenance needs will be effectively met. Furthermore, third-party contacts will eliminate communication bottlenecks.

Final Thoughts

In today's competitive market, outsourcing your commercial exterior maintenance needs is a smart approach to get more done with less. So what are you waiting for? Consider outsourcing exterior maintenance to an experienced partner, such as U.S. Facility Solutions, rather than trying to handle it all in-house.
