Like your home, it is always good to set aside some time for your steel buildings in Montana so that you can focus on giving it a thorough cleaning to get ready for spring.  Even though Montana steel buildings are considered very rugged and durable, they can still benefit from a little TLC to improve their performance and longevity.

This article will explain some of the best ways to get your Montana agricultural building ready for spring.  These tips will help improve the look of your building while also making the environment safer for you, your fellow workers on the farm, and any livestock living inside the building.

Wash the Exterior

The exterior of steel buildings in Montana is constantly exposed to mother nature’s elements.  Snow, rain, ice, and wind can all play a factor in the appearance and effectiveness of your siding.  Each spring, it is recommended to give the exterior a thorough power wash to remove any dirt, grime, or debris that may have accumulated on the siding, doors, and windows over the winter.

If you do not own a high-pressure washer, you can always hire a company that specializes in exterior power washing.  Or you can try using a regular garden hose combined with some soap, water, and some thick sponges and try tackling this project on your own.

Gutter Cleaning

If your Montana agricultural building hasn’t had a thorough gutter cleaning before last fall, you should take the time to clean them or hire a professional.  During the fall and winter seasons, leaves and debris will accumulate inside the gutters and need to be removed before they cause more extensive damage.  Clogs, water pooling, and sagging gutters can all occur if gutters are neglected.

Clean the Floors

If your Montana post frame building has a concrete floor, the beginning of spring is a great time to give it a thorough cleaning.  If any mud has become thick mounds of dirt, scrape those off first and sweep them up.  Once the large pieces of dirt have been removed, come back with a shop vac or heavy-duty vacuum to remove any other dirt that remains.  Then put the finishing touches on your work by mopping down the floor and giving it that extra shine.
