- Frozen pipes can be disastrous, and oftentimes, very preventable. Please do a sweep of your building and make sure your pipes are insulated.
- Loss of power can cause a multitude of issues, including frozen pipes, loss of production, and loss of product. It’s a great idea to have a generator.
- If you have large trees around your commercial facility, it’s recommended to keep them trimmed and in good health. Tree limbs can easily be tossed around by high winds, it’s a good idea to have them professionally trimmed away from rooftops, any power lines, and windows.
- Keeping your facility up to date in general by having it inspected annually, this would include having your furnace/AC checked, making sure general maintenance is being followed, electric lines are in good condition, and roof and guttering are well maintained.
