Office Restoration: 7 Jobs to Leave to the Professionals

Office Restoration: 7 Jobs to Leave to the Professionals
  • Opening Intro -

    So it's time to renovate your office. Perhaps the space is just old and needs an upgrade or some more serious damage has been done.

    You might be tempted to do as much of the work by yourself as you can or hiring a less qualified contractor in order to save money.


It’s always best to leave certain jobs to the professionals, and here are some things that you definitely should not try and do yourself.

1. Construction

Quality construction is a must for restoring or renovating your business – you don’t want the walls or ceilings falling down prematurely. There are even companies that administer an entire construction project. The benefits of construction administration are numerous: they will manage the construction process for you in a professional manner so you don’t have to take time away from running your business. There are a number of reputable construction administration companies to which you can entrust your business.

2. Plumbing

Plumbing is something many people think they can do themselves but there are a lot of things that can go wrong such as flooding. If you flood your home you will ultimately damage anything the water touches. Not to say that it is not fixable, it is just a hassle that you want to avoid. To avoid costly mistakes and repairs, get a professional plumber.

3. Electricity

Anything dealing with the electrical wiring of your business is downright dangerous to handle if you aren’t properly trained, have the proper tools, or certified. Working with electrical work can actually get you seriously injured if you don’t know what you are doing. It’s best to leave this one up to the pros.


Hooking up heating or cooling systems in your office requires specialized skills and knowledge, and HVAC contractors are actually required to be licensed by the state upon proving suitable training and work experience. Definitely not a job for an amateur.

5. Landscaping

Landscaping may be something you and your staff can do on their own, but it’s time consuming and needs to be done with regularity, which is time better spent elsewhere. In addition, a subpar landscaping job can make your business look run-down and unprofessional, which could potentially drive away customers.

6. Fire or Flood Damage

Restoring your office after a fire or flood is also best left to a professional restoration company. They have the equipment and the tools to clean dirty spaces thoroughly and restore damaged documents, furniture and equipment to the best of their ability.

7. Telephone or Cable Wiring

Most phone, television or Internet providers will do a free installation of their service anyway. In the event of damage, they are also the best people to come and fix any problems due to their familiarity with their own product.

There are plenty of things you can do yourself to spruce up your office, such as rearranging workspaces or getting new furniture. But there are some things it’s generally not a good idea to do. Always make sure you have proof of insurance for any contractor your business works with, and soon your business will look new again.
