Generator Maintenance Tips for Eastpointe Businesses?
Our team in St. Clair Shores has been restoring commercial property damage in Eastpointe for many years. If you haven’t serviced your generator lately, here are some tips from the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety for servicing your generator:
The time to maintain a generator is well before a major storm or disaster strikes (when professional assistance may be unavailable, power lines are down, and access roads are blocked). Backup power can help maintain a consistent building temperature and reduce the risk of freezing pipes leading to business disruption and damage.
- Permanent generators should have a proper maintenance plan that includes weekly, monthly, and annual checks. See the manufacturer’s specifications for more information.
- Run the unit on its maintenance plan weekly to ensure it is properly functioning in an emergency. Individual units may have a timer that allows a programmed test to be scheduled, and qualified personnel should oversee these scheduled weekly tests.
- Check the generator enclosure for loose debris or other conditions that could cause the unit not to function correctly
- Store in a dry location
- Set up a maintenance schedule to include periodic test runs for the unit
