Did you know preventive maintenance is much more cost-effective than paying for something when it breaks?
The facilities maintenance business is a challenging field because it encompasses a broad spectrum of services in order to preserve your assets. Planned or regularly scheduled preventive maintenance helps to curb unexpected situations from negatively impacting your business operations. With that said, we thought it would be nice to share some interesting facts about reactive and preventive facilities maintenance.
Reactive - The “fix it when it breaks” approach
- A poorly maintained building can result in an unsafe work environment, which can lead to unexpected violations, fines, and legal fees.
- 85 percent of total maintenance spending is on reactive maintenance because companies see it as the most inexpensive solution. When in fact, it is the most expensive solution.
Preventive - The “check it and make repairs before it breaks” approach
- Spending $300 a month on preventive maintenance can save you an average of $15,000 a year on unplanned maintenance repairs.
- A preventive maintenance program creates a safe, clean, and sustainable work environment, which can increase employee productivity by as much as 20 percent.
