The Importance of Planned and Reactive Maintenance

Running a business can be challenging enough without throwing routine electrical testing, building repairs, maintenance, and dreaded emergency repairs that may arise into the mix!

It can be easy to concentrate on the direct every day issues in business; staffing, budgets and serving your clients to name just a few! However what would happen if that minor repair turned into something bigger, causing disruption and loss to your business?

The benefits of Preventative Maintenance for your business

When you choose to work with us, one of the first things we will do is create a preventative maintenance schedule for your facilities core systems, including HVAC, refrigeration and the building itself.

Preventative maintenance ensures that all the core systems in your building are maintained to a high standard so they continue to operate to maximum efficiency. It also helps to prevent any larger repairs or emergencies that could arise in the future. Most breakdowns or disruptive emergencies are usually mitigated by having a planned maintenance programme in place. 

Another benefit to a planned maintenance programme is that it will usually cost you less in the long run! As your building and equipment is maintained it is less likely to break down, which could result in a big bill for the cost of brand new equipment. Failing equipment can also cause downtime in your business whilst works are being completed. 

Preventative maintenance is also essential as it ensures that your building is in the safest conditions possible. As a business owner you have peace of mind knowing your HVAC, Refrigeration systems, and electrical components are compliant, and that the rest of your building is in good working order which ensures a safe and pleasant working environment for your employees and customers.

The Benefits of
Reactive Maintenance

Unfortunately, accidents and unforeseen breakdowns can happen regardless. Whether that is an electrical fault, equipment breakdown or an accident from an employee in the building. When these things happen it is extremely important to have a reactive maintenance plan in place to minimise further damage and disruption to your building and workplace.

Having a reactive maintenance plan in place means you have the benefit of us being able to act much more quickly. The sooner you can get your equipment and building back in good working order, the sooner you can get back to business minimising any long term effects or loss.

Quick and effective maintenance can make all the difference to a business, and having the peace of mind that a professional and compliant company will take care of this for you if the need arises is priceless.
