Should you be concerned with preventative maintenance at your business building or commercial rental property? Does a little effort now go a long way towards preventing bigger problems later? The answer to both of these questions is “yes!”
We’ve all heard the saying, “A stitch in time saves nine” but how many of us understand what the heck it means? It’s saying that a little work now can save a lot of time later, and this is what preventative maintenance is all about.
The best way to implement prevention is to get your staff on a routine checking your business or property for small issues. This can seem hard to implement at first with everything else that needs to get done, but soon it will be second nature. Have them look for plumbing leaks, perform regularly scheduled equipment maintenance, even check the simple things like lightbulbs and light switches. These acts will ensure you don’t have surprises when you least want them!
