Safety Tips for Commercial Building Owners:
Owning commercial property can be financially rewarding but you must stay on top of the maintenance to protect your building and tenants. Hire a dependable maintenance company or supervisor that will do inspections on a regular basis for each unit you own. Provide them with a detailed list that includes intervals of the things you require them to inspect.
The inspections are primarily done to protect your investment but also will ensure your facility will pass State, County, or City building inspections. Check with your local authority for a listing that will more than likely include:
Both the Fire Alarm and Sprinkler systems must be tested and serviced annually.
Fire Extinguishers are visible and are not expired.
Circuit breaker panels and junction boxes aren’t covered.
Exit doors are easily accessible and emergency lights are working properly.
Walkways especially stairways are not obstructed
