As winter marches on through St. Louis, facility owners and building managers are busy trying to keep their employees and tenants warm. Although we may not readily associate the winter months with accidents involving fire, it’s crucial that building owners and facility managers keep fire safety in the forefront of their minds now and throughout the year.
With winter comes the threat of freezing temperatures and harsh conditions in the St. Louis area. These conditions can often bring various hazards to commercial buildings, including burst or freezing pipes. When a pipe bursts, it can take a large toll on your business. The water damage can delay time-sensitive projects, damage important equipment, and close the doors of your business for days, weeks, or months.
We’ve already seen very cold temperatures this winter, and we are far from the end of the season. During this time, it is imperative for you to prepare for the season’s imminent appearance by getting your building inspected. After all, snow, ice, and cold temperatures can create a myriad of issues for commercial buildings.
