We all follow the daily news religiously. We are always aware of the headlines and what’s going on around us through various news apps and social media updates. Every day we hear tonnes of cases of fires and other dangerous mishaps happening in some area or another. There are always something unfortunate happening around us for one reason or another, and the consequences of all that are devastating.
There has recently been a lot of rise in various dangerous accidents happening in commercial and residential areas. These areas include the ones that have been running for decades now and have deteriorated to an extent. Even newly acquired properties are not free from the clutches of accidents.
Whatever the reasons may be, we are getting affected by it and that too largely. That’s why home inspector in New Hampshire should be contacted regularly to get all of these places inspected well before buying them, in order to be aware of such dangerous situations and repair them before time. Even periodic inspections wouldn’t be such a bad idea come to think of it – it would keep us alert and allow us the scope to act before things get out of hand.
Why commercial building inspection is an ultimate solution?
All these misfortunate incidents happening in the commercial areas can be avoided if commercial building inspections by Alpha Building Inspections are carried out. They tend to get the hang of everything that’s going wrong and prescribe what needs immediate action and attention, and also predict some impending dangers too. They will also help you point out the areas that need consideration before starting a fully working commercial environment on that property. Here are the reasons as to why these inspections are much needed today.
- Ventilation isn’t anywhere — Almost all commercial areas nowadays are totally packed. They tend to have no space left at all for ventilation. Also because of centrally air-conditioned system around the whole area, no windows or doors are left open. This packed area or lack of ventilation can give way to many hazards too. For example, if there’s a sudden leakage of a chemical, there’s no way it gets a way to pass out from the windows — which can be really dangerous. Hence, when an inspection takes place, they tend to point this out in the report making the owners chalk out some measures as precautions in this matter.
- Lack of proper fire safety — Fire safety is mandatory in every commercial place. The larger the place, the more arrangements are made for fire extinguishers and emergency exits for the same. There are a number of commercial places where these arrangements are neglected or aren’t upgraded with time. Also, some newly opened commercial centres haven’t yet installed proper fire safety arrangements. Mishaps don’t knock the door before happening. These incidents can happen anywhere, at any time. If you are not adequately ready for it, how will you overcome such crises? These inspections help to bring out such matters in the open, thus conveying the emergency need of installing them perfectly at such commercial centres.
- Over rush of people — Recently the commercial areas that are occupied are smaller as compared to the people occupying the area. There’s always that issue of rush of more than average number of people working in a commercial centre. This situation often leads to occupying the rescue floors, covering up the emergency exits and other empty spaces that should be actually serving the purpose of SOS places. This kind of issue isn’t what workers or even most of the new owners are aware of until they carry out a proper inspection. Such building inspection spells the exact details of the areas that should be vacated for emergency exits and rescue floors to provide a safer ground for the people in that building.
- Worn out areas of the building —If the commercial centre is running from years now, it is supposed to have been worn out from most of the places. Also, if you are buying a new place as a commercial centre, it was occupied previously which would have lead to some of the areas being worn out. Most of the time, these areas aren’t visible to all – we don’t look for rusted pillars, worn out corners of the ceilings, or some weak area around the stairs, or even mould formation. It’s therefore pretty important to get the whole building inspected in order to be aware of such issues which can be dangerous later on.
Apart from these pointers, faulty drainage, chipped wires or unmaintained electrical connections are some of the issues that get the red flag because of commercial building inspections. Nowadays the problems rising due to these factors are on the rise. That’s the reason a proper inspection is needed in these commercial centres to make them better and safer for all!
