Green lawn with sprinklers spooling out water full forced. Don't risk breaking a water line or flooding your lawn.

Once the last freeze of winter has thawed, the sprinkler system on your commercial property in Doral, Florida needs to be readied for spring. If you turn the sprinklers on without making sure they're ready, you risk breaking your water lines or flooding your lawn. Here are a few irrigation maintenance steps to check off your list before you run the sprinklers for the first time.


Inspect Sprinkler Heads
One busted sprinkler head can cause major water issues. Take the time to inspect them properly by completing the following tasks:

Clean each nozzle with a toothbrush.
Check each head for damage.
Make sure every valve except the on farthest from the source is closed.

Sprinkler flooding is easy to avoid; it just takes time. By checking each sprinkler head, you can be confident that they will work once the system is turned on.


Switch on Control Panel
You won't know if your irrigation maintenance plan is successful until you test it by turning on the control panel. After cleaning it off and making sure the backup battery is new, switch it on so that you can set the correct date and time.


Open the Main Valve
Once the control panel is activated, you can open the water valve. Start slowly so that if anything is wrong, you won't have a big mess on your hands that only water remediation specialists can fix. Allow the water to flow into each branch and slowly open the valve more until it is fully functional.


Check Zones
You should be able to control which zones get water at which time intervals through your control panel. Alternate zones so that you can see that the system is actually doing what you are telling it to do.
Once you have completed this checklist, you are ready to set your automatic watering times. Performing regular irrigation maintenance throughout the season helps you make sure that it is continuing to work as it should.

Commercial Cleaning

Maintaining a clean work environment has numerous benefits for both your employees and your business. However, handling daily cleaning is a time-consuming task. Commercial cleaning providers take on this responsibility to ensure a clean work space and improve your business overall.

These are some of the benefits of regular Commercial Cleaning:

Reduces employee sick days. A clean and healthy work environment is one of the most important ways to prevent your business from dealing with absent staff

Prevents accidents. In a dirty or cluttered workplace it is only a matter of time before a customer or employee is accidentally injured. Avoid the cost and headache of legal troubles by making sure your workplace is clean and safe.

Maintains a professional appearance. The cleanliness of a work space is often viewed as a direct reflection of the business’s professionalism.

Boosts employee morale. Nothing damages employee morale quite like a dirty workplace. Keeping a clean office at all times makes a positive impact on the way your staff feel when they step into work each day.

Protects expensive equipment. A regular cleaning also defends against the damage of dust and dirt on expensive equipment.

When grime, odor, and moisture challenges go beyond the scope of your regular janitorial staff, you should call SERVPRO of Doral for prompt service. Whether it’s removing an odor problem or deep cleaning flooring or carpets, you can rely on us to make your workspace look its very best.
