The Importance of Building Maintenance
Routine building maintenance is a simple and cost effective way to protect your valuable investment for years to come. It is also important that this maintenance is provided by a professional and experienced facilities management service provider.
The benefits of doing continuous maintenance on your property:
- Limit liability claims with routine maintenance
Damaged buildings, walkways or permitted walls increase your liability should your tenants or one of their guests get injured because of damage. By regularly maintaining your property, you will not only save money, but possibly lives as well.
- Well-maintained buildings send a positive message about your business
Any client forms an instant opinion about a property upon first glance. A well maintained property tells your client if they are dealing with a professional and what your overall attitude towards your business are.
- Emergency repairs are expensive
Fixing something in an emergency will not only cost you more, but it will keep you from making money out of your property. By only fixing something in an emergency situation, you might deter any current clients from renewing their lease contracts.
- Budgeting for scheduled repairs is easy
You cannot predict the next emergency situation, but a well-maintained building will certainly have less emergency situations. While you can have an emergency repair fund, a routine building maintenance contract will allow you to stay within budget and maximise your income.
