In the world of property management, the practice of ‘preventative maintenance’ takes precedence over remedial measures. This progressive strategy necessitates consistent and regular equipment and facilities maintenance for optimal effectiveness.
Although this approach may appear to entail more work than simply rectifying issues as they arise, the benefits of regular upkeep are manifold and far outweigh any perceived inconvenience. Below are five reasons this approach is beneficial.
Scheduled servicing enhances the lifespan of your building’s systems. Regular inspections identify signs of wear early, enabling prompt fixes. This helps to ensure the longevity and optimal efficiency of building structures and accompanying equipment.
Decreased downtime and business disruptions
Unexpected equipment failures (e.g., plumbing issues) can disrupt operations and hinder productivity. Preventative maintenance mitigates these risks by identifying potential problems early and scheduling upkeep during low-activity periods, ensuring minimal disruptions and enhanced business continuity.
While regular scheduled servicing may initially seem like an extra cost, it does lead to significant savings over time. Reducing the risk of major breakdowns and extending the lifespan of equipment minimizes the need for expensive repairs and replacements.
Regular preventative maintenance incorporates safety inspections to ensure all equipment and systems function correctly (e.g., furnace checks, HVAC system reviews), mitigating potential hazards. This reduces accident risks, ensures regulatory compliance, and lessens potential legal consequences.
Increased asset value
Beyond the functional advantages, routine maintenance of your properties also helps preserve, and may even increase, the value of your assets. Well-kept equipment and facilities retain their worth longer and could provide better returns if you liquidate them.
