As the weather in Maryland warms up, it’s time to prepare commercial buildings for the hot weather. Maryland summers mean air conditioning, pest control, and general clean up from the colder months. Check out these tips for property managers, facility managers, and building managers to follow to prepare buildings for the new season.

Air Conditioning

We’ve had a few warm days, and with June just around the corner, it’s time to start turning on the air conditioning once again. To ensure that your building’s AC system is in working condition after a long winter, it needs a coil cleaning and air filter change. This will help to improve the indoor air quality, which benefits building occupants, as well as increases operating efficiency and extends the life of the AC unit.

Pest Control

Along with the nice weather and sunshine comes unwanted pests who always seem to find a way into our buildings. However, there are a few steps you can take to ensure your building remains pest-free. Simple steps like checking the building’s entry points and sealing cracks and crevices and help to reduce or eliminate infestations this summer.


After a snowy and icy winter, your building’s floors may be covered in ice-melting chemicals tracked in from the roads and sidewalks. Now that there are no more chances of snow or ice, spend some time giving the floors a really deep clean. Deep cleaning of carpets and waxing of wood floors may be a little time consuming, but the maintenance helps to extend the life of your flooring.

General Cleaning

Did you put off spring cleaning? If so, take the time to do some summer cleaning instead. Your entire building needs a deep clean and maintenance work to remain in good condition, and your occupants will appreciate the clean environment to work in. A clean and updated workplace is not only beneficial to property managers, but it may also make employees work harder and be more productive.
