Programmed maintenance (or preventative maintenance) is a proactive approach to maintenance by which we can prevent major problems by scheduling various activities to keep infrastructure in top condition. Some advantages offered by a maintenance program are:
- Short-term fiscal savings. For many reasons, money can be saved when adopting preventative rather than emergency maintenance. For instance, it can cost significantly less to effect a preventative replacement than it may cost to conduct an emergency replacement or indeed a secondary consequential repair. Similarly, it is much more efficient to plan around scheduled repairs than trying to work around the inconvenience of an emergency repair.
- Long-term fiscal savings. Just as your car benefits from regular servicing, your plumbing infrastructure will also last longer if it’s serviced regularly.
- Risk management. Proactively managing your plumbing infrastructure demonstrates a commitment to safety, whether it be staff occupational health and safety, or residents’ safety. Something as simple as regularly venting a hot water cylinder relief valve, for example, can help prevent a burst hot water unit which can cause major flooding and water in or around the electrical panel.
