Staying one step ahead is essential to success in any business. Being able to anticipate the changing needs of your clients, requirements of your employees, or landscape of your competition can mean the difference between sinking or swimming as a company. However, even the most savvy business owners often fail to anticipate an essential factor for all sectors of the economy: The effects inclement weather can have on your business’ facilities.
Preparing for the worst mother nature has to offer goes a long way towards safeguarding your business. Waterproofing your commercial or industrial facility before you obviously need it is the best way to anticipate and mitigate inclement weather.
Benefits of Waterproofing your Commercial Facility
Dirt Connections offers a wide range of waterproofing services we can tailor to fit the needs of any facility. The benefits of waterproofing your facility are numerous and can have a positive impact on your bottom line. Below are just a few of the many tangible benefits effective commercial waterproofing can offer your business.
Protecting Your Business
Dirt Connections knows the amount of time, energy, and money you have invested into your business is extremely important. Your business has increased in value due to hours of hard work and dedication. Without a properly waterproofed facility, all of that effort could go up in smoke because of one bad storm or flood. Don’t put your business at risk by relying on outdated or insufficient facility waterproofing when waters start to rise. An investment in your facility’s water resistance should be thought of as a direct investment in protecting your business, just like a security system or a safe.
A Healthy Workforce
Dampness and humidity in your facility can lead to bacteria and mold growth in a matter of hours. By allowing these problems to go unaddressed, your employees are exposed to a number of health risks, including respiratory problems and potentially serious illness. Even minor seepage can pose major health risks to your workforce if allowed to go on for an extended period of time. That is why it is important to tackle these issues now in order to ensure the your workers’ wellness and avoid costly sick days that can add up and hurt your business.
Calm During the Storm
As a business or facility owner, your business can present you with a lot to worry about on a daily basis, let alone during a severe weather event. By properly waterproofing your facility, you can avoid a great deal of stress during the next storm by being confident your business is protected from the elements.
Lowering Energy Costs
Business owners waste thousands of dollars annually on heating and cooling leaky, improperly sealed facilities. By sealing cracks and leaks in your facility’s building envelope you can cut down on your business’ heating bills in the winter by keeping more warm air in. Also, you will be giving your air conditioning a break during the summer months by limiting the amount of heavy humid air that lingers in damp areas. These lower utility bills will help your business decrease its overhead, raising profit margins and allowing you to spend money on growing your business instead of electricity.
