Parking lot sweepers, landscapers, steam cleaners, and handymen are all excellent sources for recognizing safety issues. Property supervisors, account managers, and their crews work in unison for the benefit of property owners and managers. They often recognize and report issues such as illegally dumped items, homeless activity, broken doors and locks, fire lane obstructions, worn painted curb zones, and structural damage.
Besides site audit reports, these teams also have access to a network of professionals to assess and remediate safety concerns. Some situations may require a professional assessment by a safety inspector, engineer, ADA CASp inspector, or even an aerial drone inspection. Quick action can make the difference in averting a tragedy.
Contracting an array of multifamily property services from a single company is beneficial in so many ways. Tenants experience a higher standard of cleanliness and maintenance. A consistent presence easily notices changes in property conditions, thereby identifying abnormalities. Team members share information with property managers, forming a cohesive perspective. And watchful eyes imbued with the power to speak up, can alert property managers about potential safety issues before they become a problem.
The stakes are high with multifamily properties. Reports of tragedies are usually followed with an accounting of unsafe conditions that were ignored or went unreported. Using a professional team to meet all your property needs can lead to both improved tenant satisfaction and retention, safer conditions, and more value for your property.
