Spring is a wonderful time of the year when nature awakens and fills the air with a sense of freshness. As a strata owner, it is important to ensure that the property is ready for the season, both from aesthetic and structural aspects. Proper strata building maintenance can make a big difference in your property’s value and appeal to potential residents. The following are a few pointers on how to make your strata property ready for spring.
Recovering from Winter Weather Damage
The first thing to address in the spring is any winter weather damage. Snow and ice can cause cracks and leaks on the roof of the strata, which should be checked for damage. It is also important to remove any debris that may have been collected during winter, including leaves, twigs, and any litter. Ensure that the outside lights on the building operate properly and replace any burned-out bulbs.
Spring Cleaning List
Next, create a list of things to clean up in the spring to remove any dirt, grime, and clutter that may have accumulated during the winter. Think about power washing the sidewalks, driveways, and exterior of the buildings as well as raking and sweeping the lawn and common areas. Also, dusting and cleaning furniture from any common areas may be needed. Pest checks are also recommended to ensure that there are no access points for unwanted critters.
Maintaining Landscaping Tools
The beginning of spring is a great time to maintain gardening equipment such as lawnmowers and pruning shears. The seamless and effective completion of any landscaping project depends on the quality of equipment. You might also think about setting up a spring garden with tools to spruce up the property.
Benefits of Spring Maintenance
Regular maintenance is essential for maintaining a property’s value and appeal to potential residents. By taking care of any damage and keeping your property clean and tidy, larger maintenance projects can be prevented in the future. A well-maintained strata property is also more attractive to residents and can lead to a higher retention rate. This can be time-consuming, and one may consider delegating the task to a janitorial company to ensure a smooth process.
