The Essential Toolkit To Start A Commercial Building Maintenance Service

by Patricia Brooks

If you have experience in the maintenance industry and want to start your own business, you are going to need a few tools. Some of the tools that are needed for a commercial maintenance business include work platforms, approved safety gear, and tools for a variety of mechanical systems. Here are the tools you need for all the essentials to start your own commercial building maintenance service:

1. Work Platforms to Easily Get to Higher Tasks

Work platforms are an essential part of commercial building maintenance equipment. A mobile platform can be set up and moved around open spaces to quickly get work done. With a mobile platform, you will not need to constantly move a ladder around to get work done. In addition, mobile platforms can also be custom made with different features like railings and other safety features. If you need to work at different heights, an adjustable platform will be a good investment.

2. Scaffolding and Safety Harness for Working on Roofs and Exteriors

Working on the exterior of a building is something that often cannot be done with conventional work platforms that are meant for flat surfaces. Instead of platforms, you will need to use scaffolding to get up to higher maintenance jobs. In addition, you will need to have harnesses and fall protection to work on roofs or off scaffolding on the exterior of a building. Make sure that the safety equipment you use is approved for use in construction. Do not use rock climbing equipment because cords and safety devices will be damaged by sharp edges.

3. The Complete Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC Toolkit for Commercial Maintenance

A lot of the maintenance that needs to be done for commercial buildings involves mechanical systems like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. You will want to have the general repair tools needed for these systems, such as a voltage meter, HVAC pressure gauges, and soldering equipment. Keep larger tools on your work vehicle and keep a toolbox or bag with the basic mechanical systems repair kit. Your toolbelt should include all the basic tools needed to do repairs to electrical and plumbing systems.

These are all the essential tools you will need to start your own commercial building maintenance service. Contact a vendor of mobile work platforms to get the approved work platforms you need for your business. They will also be able to provide you with other equipment you may need for your business, such as scaffolding, scissor lifts and other specialized platform solutions.
