Forgotten Office Expenses That Could Cost You Big

 In All, Commercial Real Estate, HVAC, Plumbing, Warranty

Forgotten office expenses could cost your business BIG if you’re not prepared. If you have followed the OfficeGuardian blog at all, you likely will have read of the benefits of the Guardian Essentials office warranty plan. This is the basic office warranty plan that covers air conditioning, heating, electrical, plumbing systems as well as your water heater and fire extinguishers for a low monthly cost. The benefits of a plan like this are vast. It will protect you as a business owner or a landlord/property manager from repair nightmares, eliminate surprises that disrupt business, and stabilize your bottom line. The peace of mind you have from this plan is invaluable. Your major office systems are protected from time-consuming, budget-busting repairs.

The office warranty through OfficeGuardian also offers an additional layer of protection through preventive maintenance. By maintaining your office systems regularly, you can avoid the hassle of repairs and break downs and keep your systems running smoothly longer.

But these systems are not the only items that can cause headaches in your office. Most offices have kitchens or breakrooms with appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, possibly a trash compactor or garbage disposal. Maybe your business has a dishwasher or an oven. Medical offices, health spas, salons also have one or more laundry washer and dryer. All of these items have the potential to break and cause additional hassles and take your money and focus off your business.
