Summer Facility Management Tips

When the weather warms, it’s time to start your summer facility maintenance tasks. Getting a head start on facility cleaning is a smart and proactive move in protecting and beautifying your facility. A clean, well-maintained facility increases the health and happiness of the people in it. Take a look at these areas to help you review your maintenance program for the coming year.

HVAC Maintenance

In the summer heat, your HVAC system does its hardest work. This can cause your HVAC system to fail, especially if the right precautions aren’t taken. To make sure your system is ready to handle summer, follow these simple steps:

  • Check HVAC condenser and evaporator coils to ensure they are clean
  • Do a full system inspection and check the refrigerant system for leaks
  • Change the filter (A simple monthly filter change can reduce your energy bill by 15%!)
  • Inspect and clear the drain ducts and pans

Maintain Unused Spaces

Summer can mean reduced occupancy and empty spaces in your facility. Make sure to check underused areas for leaks, mold, infestations, and any other problems. It can be easy for a problem to go unnoticed in areas where people don’t go for weeks or months.

This is also the perfect opportunity to move furniture, clean carpets, floors and any other items that are difficult when the area is full of workers.
