Facility and ground maintenance should be done at least twice a year, typically during fall and spring. Inspections and repairs are an essential add-on to an already extensive building maintenance list, making planning ahead an absolute necessity. Call vendors for quotes for facility maintenance well in advance before the snow falls (an absolute guarantee in Wisconsin) and before the snow melts in the spring. Schedule the work accordingly so all facility maintenance, interior and exterior, is completed promptly.
