How to get your business ready for winter

13/11/18

With summer a pleasant, but fading, memory winter is now inching ever closer, bringing with it the inevitable freezing temperatures and bad weather. For businesses this can mean risk as snow, flooding and other bad weather mean that the chances of disruption and additional costs are increased.

The good news is that there are some simple things that businesses can do to prepare for winter to help mitigate these risks.

Here are our top nine tips to help make your business more resilient so that it can trade with minimal disruption whatever the weather throws at us.

  1. Now is the time to sort out any postponed repairs. From a dripping tap to an overdue boiler service, it’s best to sort out problems now rather than trying to call out a plumber when everyone else is too.
  2. To reduce the risks of a burst pipe, which can cost around £5,000 to repair, make sure that pipes in cold areas such as around windows and in basements are insulated.
  3. Know where the internal stopcock is and make sure you can turn it off if required.
