1. Caring For Your HVAC
Every winter, replace your air filters and consider having your air ducts and vents professionally cleaned. According to the EPA, it is best to replace filters at least every three months. We recommend more often in months where you use your HVAC heavily, like summer and winter. It not only makes sure the air stays clean but ensures steady airflow. Furthermore, replacing your air filters also help reduce on furniture and floors. Cleaning your ducts and vents also clears away excessive build-up, once again ensure proper air-flow. It also removes allergens which can get trapped within your home and cause issues all year long.
2. Proper Water Drainage
A water drainage system is used to direct excess water away from a property, especially the building and landscaping areas. Remove salt and water from office floors, especially entryways, make sure any excess water from the rain/ snow make its way out of with proper pipelines installed. Make sure all the drainage systems are free from any blockages such as leaves and rocks that may make their way with the rain or the wind.

Schedule a maintenance/ snow removal, leave the job to the professionals so you can focus on what's important. A few things to keep in mind as you work with your employees:
4. Disinfect highly-touched areas
Some office areas such as the lobby and the meeting rooms can be full of unwanted germs especially this time of the year.
