The holiday season is just around the corner, which means, so is winter. Winter’s harsh weather elements take a significant toll on commercial and outdoor signs. Therefore, it is essential to take preventive measures to not only keep them nice and safe but to make the most of the highest retail season of the year. There is not a single business owner in Colorado who is willing to miss the opportunity to boost their incomes. Nonetheless, at BSC Signs, we have noticed that many overlook preventive maintenance until it is too late.
Keeping your business sign beautiful during winter
To keep your commercial signage useful and looking great, it is vital to perform a checkup from top to bottom. Go over the lighting system and look for any burned bulbs, LEDs or dimmed neon. All of these should be taken care immediately. A single burned light will project a poor business image. As winter gets closer and the days are darker, you will need bright lights to lead the way.
Check for signs of cracking, fading, or chipping on your signage paint. Cold weathers will boost these damages, making them harder and more expensive to fix. All of these signs of deterioration should be taken care of immediately by professionals.
Keeping your commercial sign safe
It is also essential to check the whole structure of your commercial signage. That means getting on top of a ladder and running a full inspection from top to bottom. We suggest hiring a professional, not only for obvious safety reasons but once up there, a professional sign technician will know what to look for.
Look for signs of rust or corrosion. Rust can literary eat metal components away. Also, pay attention to any broken or loose fittings. Strong winds can easily blow your signage away if it is not well attached.
Remember, with severe weather risks; preventive maintenance is your rule of thumb to maintain your commercial sign effectively and safely for all of your staff, partners, and customers. Contact BSC Signs today and learn about our winter preventive maintenance services.
