Your employees and tenants are the lifeblood of your operation. It only makes sense to ensure that their well being and satisfaction is of the first priority when managing day-to-day operations. One of the ways to improve employee and tenant satisfaction is through proper maintenance that raises the health standards of your facility.
The health standards of your facility matter a lot, even if you are not in an industry with strict health codes. Those in restaurants, hotels, and hospitals follow strict maintenance and cleaning schedules to prevent citations, but many of the same protocols should be followed by businesses in other industries. Preventative maintenance and proper cleaning can provide several benefits to employee or tenant health.
Improved indoor air quality
Indoor air quality is of the utmost importance when managing any type of commercial facility. It affects the health of your tenants, as poor indoor air quality can cause serious health risks. Things like poor HVAC maintenance can lead to longer cold and flu seasons, migraines, and risks for those with asthma or other respiratory problems. Indoor air quality can even affect productivity in the workplace. Be mindful of your HVAC maintenance to create a healthier work environment.
Reduced risk of spreading bacteria and viruses
In addition to the risk of respiratory problems associated with poor indoor air quality, bacteria and viruses can spread easily if your HVAC system is not maintained. Bacteria thrives in the cool, moist environment of an HVAC system and can spread if ducts are not cleaned. Plumbing problems can also lead to the spread of bacteria and viruses if not kept in check.
Improved safety in the event of a natural disaster
Well-maintained buildings are safe havens in the event of a natural disaster. Those that are poorly maintained become unsafe places for your tenants and employees.
