In the past, we’ve talked about the benefits of preventative maintenance. One of which spoke on how it can save a property manager or building owner money! Being that it’s budget season, we’d like to dive into details on just how effective this can actually be. Here are a few examples of how Preventative Maintenance can make a difference and save you money.
Discovery of New Technology
Every year, there are new inventions, apps and other digital programs that move us into a faster, more efficient industry. The more up-to-date you are, the less you have to worry about things going wrong. Take time to consult with experts and see what new tools are out there for property managers and building owners. These very tools may be paramount to your future success. You can also learn more by researching seminars in your area that may have experts speaking on these topics.
Disappearing Maintenance Costs!
Another benefit of Preventative Maintenance is that by taking care of your equipment early and often, you’ll start to notice less repair costs each year. Since Preventative Maintenance helps keep your equipment running smoothly, you’ll find that you won’t need to pay unnecessary fees that you may have once paid for in the past. The money that you end up saving can then be used toward other ongoing costs.
Monthly Inspections will allow you to catch minor issues on building equipment and fix them before they turn into major problems. Think in terms of how often a car needs maintenance checkups. The longer you wait on a smaller issue, the higher of risk you take as a loose bolt or leaking gas tank gets worse and worse. In that same vein, if you’ve got building equipment that may be rusting or in need of a new part – without monthly inspections, things will also get worse.
Preventative Maintenance speaks to the old saying, “If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.” Keeping up on your property equipment and timely inspections allows you to not only save money and time but also gives you room to spend on other areas of managing your property that might need a little more assistance, like staffing or upgrading materials which in turn creates a better overall environment. Either way, don’t fall behind by passing on Preventative Maintenance services!
