“Your roof is the first line of defense”
Triad Cleaning Solutions is comprised of reliable, trustworthy individuals eager to serve you and partner with you to protect your business. Below are a few tips and ideas to help you prepare for the season:
- Clean Out Gutters – Clogged gutters can flood areas never meant to hold that amount of water, causing flood, mold, and dirt, build. Neglecting gutters can also bring unwanted mosquitoes and other bugs bringing disease and infection. Doing this at the start of the rainy season is key.
- Roof Preparation – Your roof is the first line of defense from the downpour. Replace damaged shingles, repair damaged roof ridges, and look for stains leading to leakage. Leaking can lead to mold, mildew, collapsed ceiling, and flooding. Fixing these issues sooner rather than later will prevent further complications of water damage.
- Trim Trees – Be sure to trim all growth around your facility. Eliminating any branches that can damage vehicles or your building from wind and lightning is a necessity.
- Seal Windows and Doors – Another source for leakage is through the entry points of windows and doors. The tiniest sliver of a gap unattended can allow water to enter into your facility. Be sure to have your Triad account manager check to see if you need additional weather stripping and door seals.
Proactively maintaining your facilities with Triad’s commercial cleaning and maintenance experts, assures you will prevent costly repairs and keep employees and clients healthy and happy during the rainy season, as well as throughout the rest of the year!
