lEarly spring is a great time to assess your buildings and grounds

Here is a checklist to help:

• Pest Management
Have your buildings sprayed for problem pests. Follow proper IPM protocols. Identify any issues that attract pests and address.

Clear gutters/drains of all clogs and debris and inspect for any winter damage.

Have professional inspection done for any winter damage

Perform seasonal pm on all AC units. Inspect, clean, change filters now, so they will cool efficiently when hot weather arrives. Have air ducts cleaned.

Inspect door components, tile/grout, light switches/face plates, ceiling tiles, countertops, shelving, cabinets/hinges, and schedule annual fire extinguisher inspections.
