Most asset owners and maintenance personnel spend the majority of their time responding to calls to fix a problem. While a necessary part, and one that will never be eliminated, many problems can be prevented with the proper preventive maintenance.
Preventive maintenance can be easily neglected, so it’s important to keep maintenance staff on their toes when it comes to scheduling preventive maintenance. Changing an air filter or inspecting a water heater on a regular basis keeps maintenance personnel on top of any smaller problems that can be taken care of before they become big problems.
This area is usually the cause of least concern for asset owners. They simply assign maintenance personnel a series of jobs that are to be undertaken at a scheduled time; typically daily, weekly, or monthly. These include items such as regular landscaping, cleaning, and vacuuming of common areas.
Deferred maintenance is often found in properties with little to no funds available for needed repairs. While deferred maintenance can provide asset owners with a little breathing room, it’s important that repairs be initiated in the near future, or the value of the property can be negatively impacted along with its performance for the occupier.
Cosmetic maintenance is most often performed during the make-ready process. New carpeting, fresh paint, and new light fixtures are often part of the maintenance that will need to be performed between tenant rental periods.
