Before the harshness of winter hits, here are a few tips to prepare for the worst. A little preparation can help you get through winter with as little damage or wear and tear as possible.
You will want to maintain your indoor temperatures in order for your equipment and employees to function optimally. If you do your own maintenance, now is the time to look for worn or damaged parts and clean out accumulated dust or dirt. If you use a service, schedule a cleaning. If you have generators, make sure they’re operational and ready to take over if needed.
For any machines that need to operate outside in the cold:
Check your parking lot and look for any damage that will be exacerbated due to ice and snow and have it repaired now. Check your trees and take down any broken or cracked branches, as those are likely to cause trouble should you get a snow or ice storm. Look for branches that may have grown over power lines and trim them back. Once winter sets in, this kind of work can be difficult to do.
