Regular Building Maintenance Can Save Money

When people reside in a building whether small, large or even a skyscraper, it is bound to get some wear and tear. The cleanliness and regular upkeep of buildings have become necessary as they can save time, resources and money if managed properly. Developed cities around the world need professional building maintenance services. Cities like Edmonton in Canada need the services of professional maintenance staff like Barmel Building Maintenance. Having professional maintenance service providers who are efficient, equipped and economical is sure to keep your building up to par. Everyone wants to have a clean and fresh environment in their building, and no one wants to leave something unchecked which can lead to a bigger cost or nuisance. This is where professional maintenance service in Edmonton comes in handy. Professional building maintenance companies know how to keep your building in good condition, they also know how to make a proper and continuous maintenance schedule for the whole year. This way they can assure that you save a lot of money by avoiding larger repairs while undergoing maintenance. Barmel Building Maintenance takes pride in looking after your building. Here are some of the areas we cover:

Foundation and Structure

This is the base of any building, so we must monitor the appearance of cracks in walls and ceilings. In addition, care must be taken, especially in older buildings, not to overload the slabs (safes, bookstores, etc).

Preserve the Facade

The facades protect the building and are, together with the roof, most exposed to the weather. We must therefore monitor its state of conservation: materials, finishes, paint needs etc.

Caring for the Roof

The rooftop of any building, as we have already stated, is the part of the building most exposed to weather and it is often difficult to access. We recommend regular checkups and maintenance to the rooftops of all buildings.

Check for the Humidity

Improper humidity levels can cause corrosion which is very dangerous. Checking humidity, condensation and air quality levels is very important. The sooner incorrect levee are identified and fixed the better it will be for the building and its residents.

Caring for the Woodwork

If your building is old, chances are it will probably have some sort of woodwork. We believe special care must be taken with leaks in bathrooms, kitchens and all pipes, since excessive moisture can lead to wood rotting over time.

Metal Elements

Moisture produces oxidation and corrosion, so we will have to pay serious attention to metal elements exposed to the weather or leaks. We believe that timely work done is actually the best practice in building maintenance services.

Drains and Sinks

Having a systematic or periodic maintenance process will prevent jams, dampness and bad odors.

Insulation and Ventilation

Good insulation prevents heating and cooling losses, saving you a good amount of money. In turn, proper ventilation prevents the appearance of moisture based condensation.

Maintenance Log Entries

Building maintenance log entries collect much information about the building, especially the rules of use, conservation and maintenance. Complying with indicated maintenance is a guarantee of good conservation.

Regular Inspections

It’s also important to have regular checkups on elevators and fire extinguishers. Hiring an annual inspection service can save you a lot of money!

Avoid Illegal or Low Quality Works

There are some legal aspects involved when large maintenance work is done in common areas and/or inside homes. We remain very careful not to touch structural elements such as load-bearing walls to open openings, for example.
