An important detail to remember regarding your dark store is the landscape around the property. Even though every day business may not be going on at your store, it is still critical to maintain the grass and other shrubbery in the area. Our comprehensive landscape services cover these important details. Whether you would like to schedule regular lawn care treatment or you would just like occasional clean ups, our team is here to assist.  


Boarding up your windows and doors is another example of steps that you can take to protect your property. If you are no longer able to be at your closed store every day, leaving your doors or windows bare could be taken advantages of by vandals. While it is simple to take something hard and throw it through a window to gain entry, it is much more difficult to try to break through boards. Using our board up service provides you with the peace of mind of know that you have added an extra layer of protection to your storefront.  

Plumbing and Electrical 

You should pay close attention to your plumbing and electrical systems during these transitional times. If your plumbing system goes without correct maintenance, you run the risk of creating a major issue over time. This is something that could impact anything remaining in your building or cause problems if you are looking to sell the building. Allowing your electrical system to fall into disrepair could result in serious consequences such as a fire.
