The most important reason for establishing a maintenance/service program is to protect the capital investment. Furthermore, not only to protect but to prolong the useful life of the components.
Preventive Maintenance emphasizes proactive maintenance to maximize the operational efficiency of each component. The implementation of a Preventive Maintenance Program (PMP) creates a shares responsibility between Management and Business Partner that encourages greater involvement by all parties involved.
The PMP has proven very helpful to our customers over the years.
Here are the main steps:
The data is essential for any component when proper and ongoing evaluation conditions is being made. Warranties along with maintenance records are your best allies.
Checklists are most helpful and provide a systematic approach to the program. It is suggested to inspect just before the most severe weather cycles. For the Tri-State Area, it would be wise to perform twice a year: spring and fall.
Last but not least, maintenance tasks are scheduled and documented. Certified contractors, with state licenses and insurance are the key element to successful performance. A maintenance contract will ensure consistent post-installation performance with a professional contractor.
The residents’ participation is vital to the success of this program. A ‘See Something – Say Something’ policy will be very effective in improving productivity, reducing dramatically down times and work orders while saving significantly time and money.
