Preventative maintenance is not reactionary, it is proactive. Its focus is on preventing problems from ever occurring in the first place. Preventative maintenance includes activities such as adjustments to equipment and systems, scheduled service repairs and parts replacements.

Some businesses view preventative maintenance as an unnecessary expenditure and focus only on immediate repairs. Even though reactionary maintenance is needed in some circumstances, transitioning to a preventative maintenance program will save you time, money and help your business run more smoothly!

Benefits of Having a Preventative Maintenance Program Include:


Reduced Downtime

Time is money. If equipment goes down, then you’re losing both time and money. Preventative maintenance reduces downtime and allows your equipment to run optimally.

Increase in Operational Efficiency

Preventative maintenance will help you maintain high operational efficiency in your building, it’s equipment and systems. When your building, equipment and systems are running efficiently, you use fewer resources and energy which results in cost savings to you.

Reduce Costs Associated with Reactionary Repairs

Reactionary maintenance can be expensive. By performing routine inspections and scheduled maintenance, preventative maintenance will help reduce these costs.

Increase the Lifespan of Equipment

By regularly inspecting and maintaining your building, equipment and systems, you will ensure that all scheduled maintenance and repairs are up to date which will maximize their lifespans.
