Attention Facility Managers! Now is the Time to Plan Spring Inspections

Spring InspectionsWinter is in full swing and Jack Frost seems reluctant to loosen his grip on the weather, but spring will be here before you know it. For most of us, that just means warmer weather and safer driving conditions. For facility managers and property owners, spring means it’s time for inspections and common area maintenance (CAM): repair, replacement, and care of all lighting, plumbing, roofs, parking surfaces, landscaped areas, signs, and more.

Planning Spring Inspections and Preparing CAM Budgets

When the snow and ice finally melt away, facility managers will more than likely be met by pavement damage thanks to our good friends the freeze-thaw cycle and de-icing chemicals.

“All Maryland businesses, corporations, employers and business owners have a legal obligation and responsibility to properly maintain all areas of their property. This includes parking lots, driveways and sidewalks,” warns a Maryland attorney.

This is why it is important to schedule spring inspections as soon as the weather clears up. This will not only help you deal with existing pavement damage, but it will also help you better plan CAM budgets. A pavement contractor will be able to examine your parking surfaces, retaining walls, sidewalks, dumpster corals, curbs, and more and provide insight on your future maintenance, repair, and replacement needs. Which projects need to be dealt with this year and which projects can wait another 12 months?
