Keeping your business or commercial property safe and sound is necessary in operating smoothly. Many buildings have preexisting small issues that have the capacity to turn into larger ones if not taken care of properly or soon enough. 

Here is highlighted some of the issues that occur most frequently in commercial buildings. Be sure that your building has been inspected for these issues. In the event of finding any of these, do your best to get them fixed in a timely manner. Not addressing them soon enough could result in costly damage happening down the road.

Leaks - Whether you have a leak in your roof, foundation, or pipes, water can accumulate in areas of your building. Sedentary moisture almost always leads to rotting wood, foul odors, and mold growth.

Asbestos - Although not used in construction anymore, older buildings may still have asbestos present. Exposure to asbestos is extremely dangerous and must be taken care of if found in exposed areas in your home. 

Fire Safety Regulations - Make sure that your fire extinguishers are up to date and are in working order.  Check your sprinkler system to ensure that in the event of a fire, they will work as intended.

Electrical Faults and pesky rodents - If you have older wiring in your building, they should be checked for faults.  If you have ever had a rodent problem, you should also have your wiring checked. Mice and rats tend to chew on wires, leaving them exposed and more likely to start a fire.
