Preparing Your Commercial Business for Winter in Edwardsburg, MI

When you live in Michigan, you know that winters can be hard on buildings. Besides the constant cold temperatures, we also often get lake-effect snow, which is dense, heavy, moisture-ridden snow and often causes limbs of trees to break or roofs to fall in! With that being said, we have some tips to help prepare your business for the Michigan winter coming soon.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, from wind, heavy rain and ice to lake-effect snow, can cause branches to fall, which could bring damage to your commercial property and potentially cause personal injuries.
  • Inspect your property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard and icy spot potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water can be present. Ice your sidewalks and walkways.
  • Ask SERVPRO of Cass and St. Joseph Counties about starting an Emergency Ready Profile for your business.
