For business owners, keeping your doors operating smoothly will ensure that both your employees and customers are able to easily access your place. On top of this, door maintenance can also improve the efficiency of your energy usage. To help prepare your commercial doors for the colder months to come, try out these steps:
Clean Doors — Taking the time to clean your doors will not only enhance their appearance, but cleaning the track and removing any gunk that has formed along the doors’ moving parts can also help improve their performance.
Tighten Bolts & Hinges — Check all of the bolts, nuts, and hinges on your door. If you spot any that are loose, tighten them. Remember that as the temperature fluctuates wood and metal can expand and contract, loosening bonds.
Lubricate Parts — Adding lubricant is one of the best door maintenance tips. Lubricate your commercial doors generously and evenly.
If your windows are old and drafty, you may want to consider replacing them. A full window replacement can not only improve the overall curb appeal, but it can also drastically optimize the energy efficiency of your business in the cold and hot months. However, if you are not yet ready for a full window replacement, below are some of the ways you can improve and maintain your old commercial windows:
- Reseal Windows — If your windows are letting in drafts, this is directly impacting your energy efficiency and heating and cooling costs. If you spot leaks, reseal your windows.
- Add Treatments — Blinds and other types of shading can help improve your energy expenditure. Consider adding some window treatments to your commercial windows.
- Clean Them — Regularly cleaning windows will not only make your business look better, but it can also allow more solar energy to pass through your panels, maximizing your energy efficiency in the winter months.
