Is Your Commercial Facility Ready for Spring and Summer Weather?
Winter may be over, but your commercial facility or production plant may still have a storm or two to weather. Pennsylvania tends to experience a fair amount of rainfall during the spring months, and the upcoming summer heat and humidity can wreak havoc on the exterior of your professional property – making commercial asset preservation for spring and summer essential.
July and August can be especially humid in Pennsylvania. When the air contains excessive moisture, it can cause the wooden walls of your facility to swell and create cracks in the paint. When the temperatures cool down again, the wood will retract, making the cracks even more obvious and making a negative impression on potential clients.
Many areas of Pennsylvania are prone to flooding, and never more so than during the early spring and summer. If your commercial facility becomes flooded, water can infiltrate your foundation and lead to structural damage or corrosion. Not only can this become expensive, it’s also dangerous: your workers could be subject to a hazardous working environment prone to collapse or mold. Flooding can also affect electrical wiring and other mechanical processes, throwing a figurative wrench in your business proceedings.
The sunny days of summer are a welcome change from Pennsylvania’s cold winter nights, but this heat can make its mark on your commercial facility’s paint job. Paint can blister, bubble, or peel when exposed to direct sunlight, making your property look unprofessional. It can even endanger the health of your employees, as peeling paint is more likely to become a home for mold and mildew. The sun’s UV rays can also lead to chalking, or a thin film on the surface of your paint, and unsightly peeling.
