Tenants, workers, and clients all prefer to be in clean, safe, well-kept buildings. As an owner or manager, the building or commercial property under your care is a reflection of your business and the people who work in it. Proper upkeep also retains a property’s value.
In order to stay in pristine condition for all to enjoy, properties need regular attention. If you don’t arrange regular cleaning and maintenance, you may receive complaints, lose tenants, or have trouble leasing available suites. Eventually, your building may not require just small repairs, but large expensive repairs, deep cleaning, and in some instances replacement of large items or equipment. A state of disrepair can also compromise safety and security which may bring up liability issues.
A facilities service plan involves more than just regular cleaning and emergency repairs. A maintenance plan covers a building’s routine maintenance as well as the long term care of interior and exterior structures, surfaces, and equipment.
Using a maintenance and janitorial company has many advantages over taking a “DIY” approach. Specially trained technicians are familiar with needed preventative maintenance and upkeep. Staying on top of these things can help equipment, furniture, and structures last as long as possible and help businesses maintain the warranties on their equipment. A maintenance company also comes with a large network of tried and true vendors. When outsourcing is required, you are not left trusting the internet to recommend a vendor. You maintenance team can refer you to an expert and facilitate the repair.
