Preventative Maintenance Checklist
Preventive maintenance is an important part of facilities management. The goal of a successful preventive maintenance program is to establish consistent practices designed to improve the performance and safety of the equipment at your property. SERVPRO of Edmonds encourages you to create a maintenance plan which will help lessen the risk of unexpected issues at your property that could lead to water, mold or sewage damage.
The planned maintenance of equipment will help to improve equipment life and avoid any unplanned maintenance activity. A successful preventive maintenance program is dependent on the cooperation of all the parties involved. Managers must rely on the knowledge, ideas, and contributions of all the maintenance personnel at the property.
