We might have an extra day this month (happy Leap Year!), but February is still the shortest month of the year. March will be here soon, which means a shift will occur in weather and relative safety needs. Prepare for the winter thaw and the rainstorms that accompany early spring months. Anticipate wet umbrellas, and be aware that they may cause puddles when carelessly toted around your property by guests.
Caution: Wet Umbrellas Cause Accidents
Wet umbrellas are a nuisance for property owners and visitors alike. No one likes toting a wet umbrella while shopping, and businesses simply cannot afford to allow dripping umbrellas to cause dangerous puddles. Fortunately, there are ways to care for wet umbrellas that eliminate the inconvenience and danger of both scenarios.
Umbrella cans are available and represent the simplest solution. As the name implies, these cans are cylindrical and measure about 24” or more in height. Wet umbrellas are placed inside, where they drip dry. Property owners must clean these cans regularly, however. Failure to do so may result in the formation of hazardous mold and mildew.
Wet umbrella stands are an excellent alternative. These free standing units are simple and effective, offering guests a disposable plastic bag designed to neatly envelop the entire umbrella. Many customers prefer this method, since it does not require them to leave their umbrella near the entryway of the build.
Automatic wet umbrella wrappers are a more convenient option, ideal for upscale buildings and locations where customer experience enhancement is a top priority. These units automatically wrap the umbrella in a disposable plastic bag, making it easy and convenient for visitors to use.
