For many property owners, the name of the game is cost saving. With property owners across North America becoming more budget conscious, it is important to start at home. Proper care and cleaning may leave your exteriors looking great but expert practices can also help to keep everyday costs down, as well as avoiding costly (and premature!) repairs and replacements. If you are hoping to cut costs around your living space or commercial property, let our Gorillas shine some light on your options.
Saving Money: From Utility Bills to Construction Projects
When temperatures begin to fluctuate, it is common to watch utility bills start to climb. A bit of fluctuation is normal, but if you are noticing larger than normal costs, it may be time to start investigating. Even a small amount of neglect can have a big impact on interior spaces but exterior areas can also cost property owners money. Low curb appeal can drag down home values and have a negative impact on appraisal values.
Cutting Everyday Costs: Utility costs can be sneaky. Expenses for water and heating can double or triple but it is not always noticeable when it happens on a slow incline. Regular cleaning services help to keep vulnerable materials, like windows, in great shape. Glass panes are vulnerable to weakening and breaking when left to collect dirt, but frames and sills are also major contributors to drafts. A window draft can mean turning up the heat in winter and cranking the AC in summer. Clean panes also admit more natural light which means less need for artificial lights and electricity.
Adding to Appraisals: When it comes to a home, first impressions are everything. Something as simple as moss on a roof or algae on a patio can drive asking prices down for anyone looking to sell. Routine maintenance can help to not only maintain an appealing exterior space but can preserve the condition of materials as well. Soft washing stucco and de-cluttering roofing can help to provide a clear view for appraisers, expediting processes and boosting curb appeal and values.
The Value of Regular Property Care
When it comes time to mow a lawn or scrub a window pane, many property owners are quick to grab a mower or basic blue glass cleaner.
