The motivation behind creating a proactive maintenance schedule is simple. By performing proactive maintenance on your building’s equipment, you can avoid future issues related to equipment failure that could potentially delay operations, and cause you to lose money in the long run. Hiring a technician from a service, such as BRAVO!, can save your business from experiencing equipment-related delays to your business’ operations.
How Does it Work?
Proactive maintenance is obviously a more involved process than simply replacing or fixing broken equipment. Proactive maintenance relies on the anticipation of possible problems that might occur in the future.
Part of this approach is the establishment of routine, scheduled maintenance. Over the course of this schedule, a service technician will come to your building on a regular basis to check up on your equipment, perform necessary repairs, and try to identify issues before they happen.
Many businesses avoid this approach due to the financial implications. Why pay for maintenance on something that isn’t yet broken? However, business owners who think this way are often not thinking of the long-term benefits that proactive maintenance provides.
Rather than looking at is paying for nothing, because there are no problems with your equipment, think of it is protecting yourself from having to pay the insane costs of replacing your equipment altogether.
Consider something such as the roofing on your building. Not only would regular maintenance for this be much cheaper than having to replace the roofing, but it would also prevent you from having to shut down your business while the repair is being completed. In this way, proactive maintenance can almost be seen as insurance more than anything.
Ideally, this sort of proactive maintenance would be provided for all of the equipment located throughout your business’ building. Unfortunately, this is something that is just not possible more many businesses due to budgetary constraints.
For this reason, it is important to consider which equipment is and isn’t worth having regular maintenance one. At BRAVO!, we can give you an estimate as to how much regular maintenance will cost for any piece of equipment, and compare it to how much it would cost to replace that equipment. In some instances, you will find that it is more financially feasible to forego scheduled maintenance in favor of dealing with problems as they arise. Most of the time, however, this will not be the case.
Remember, it is always better to prepare yourself in advance for any possible problems. If you are avoiding proactive maintenance in the hopes that your equipment will operate as it should, you might be leaving yourself vulnerable to catastrophic equipment failure which can drain your business’ budget, halt operations, and cause health risks for you and your employees.
