Cutting Corners Can Be Costly
If you are a facility manager, whether apartment buildings or offices, you may have times where some of the spaces are not in use and it may be tempting to just shut the door and walk away while waiting for a new occupant because it is easier and not time consuming.
Please be aware of potential issues and remember there are some things you will want to do while you are between occupants, you will want to make sure you have the water supply shut off and keep the temperature regulated.
In doing so this can help prevent the water lines from freezing and bursting and making sure the temperatures are regulated will help prevent mold growth.
While some may not see the point in paying the monthly electric bill in a space that is not being used, in the end, it is going to be a lot cheaper than taking the risk of losing thousands of dollars in a water loss or having to pay someone to come in and clean the mold up in order to keep the office area clean for those who move in to the space.
