With the UK currently in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is understandable that hiring a commercial interior design company to remodel your business space is not currently an available option, meaning many restaurants and office spaces are having to delay their much needed workplace redesigns. In the below article, we discuss the ways in which you can maintain your property professionally until interior design work is able to be carried out safely.
Prioritise Utilities and Facilities Maintenance
Ensuring that you stay on top of the maintenance of your workplace facilities is vital to keeping both your customers and your staff happy, especially if your business is still currently in operation. Such facilities include features such as staff and public bathrooms, air conditioning units, break rooms, escalators, and elevators.
Ideally, monthly inspections should be conducted to assess proper operation of all necessary facilities to help prevent accidents and maintain the quality of your building and workplace.
Keep up to date on Pest Control
One of the worst problems that business owners can face with any kind of commercial property is a pest infestation, potentially costing thousands in extermination costs, as well as leading to a temporary closure while the issue is resolved. With most businesses out of operation due to the current circumstances anyway, now is a great time to deal with any unwanted pests, as it means no business is lost as a result!
Businesses should aim to have their property assessed for potential infestation at least once per year, helping to keep your workplace healthy and properly maintained.
Prioritise Smaller Remodelling Projects
The refurbishment of your commercial work space can go a long way in helping a space to feel well kept and up to date, however, as larger refurbishment jobs are currently unable to go ahead, businesses owners should focus of smaller changes that they can be making that can completely transform their property.
Repainting peeling and chipped walls and replacing worn down and ripped carpet can work wonders for how your customers will perceive your business, helping you to retain your customer base, especially if still operating as normal.
To conclude, there are a number of things that business owners can do to ensure their property is properly maintained during these current unprecedented times, for more inspiration, why not take a look at Lake Contracts’ previously completed projects and discover the work that they can carry out for you.
