A company that provides facility management services also specializes in preventive maintenance. The maintenance is necessary for ensuring that any equipment within a building remains in excellent condition. For this reason, services are essential for many reasons. Mostly, they keep the equipment continue operating optimally thus saving the property owners from investing huge sums of money on replacements. In this article, we consider how facility management performs preventive maintenance.


It’s impossible to talk about preventive maintenance without mentioning inspection. After all, the quality of maintenance services that a building needs for its equipment is only determinable upon thorough inspection. In this regard, the inspection always endeavors to detect existing and possible problems. Through inspection, the team providing integrated facility management services would then be able to recommend the course of action to take to correct the problems. Following the inspection, the team would then be able to embark on:

§  Oil changes

§  Lubrication

§  Cleaning

§  Repairs

§  Part replacement

§  Overhaul (partial/complete)

Keeping Accurate Records

Furthermore, the facility management team has to include proper records as part of preventive maintenance. Without a question, each inspection has to be recorded accurately for future reference. All the services that a building’s equipment has received also must be recorded effectively. That way, anybody who shows up to perform or confirm if a building ever received preventive maintenance would get the right answer from these records. Through the records, the inspection team would also be able to determine the services the equipment never got!

Running Preventive Maintenance Software

At times, it might be impossible for the team providing integrated facility management services to do its job efficiently. In such instances, it would be much better for the team to rely on preventive maintenance software. After all, the manual way of doing such work is only effective for a short while. On the other hand, the software supports detailed coordination of all tasks hence simplifying some of the most complex processes. Furthermore, the software guarantees the convenient storage of all data in one place. With the software, the team can manage:

§  Work orders

§  Purchase orders

§  Inventory

§  Maintenance records

Essentially, facility management can only perform preventive maintenance by creating a plan, first. Afterward, it would need to prepare an inventory of all the assets and equipment in a facility. With this in place, the team would be ready to create the right procedures for preventive maintenance. A detailed schedule regarding all the different actions or tasks that must be performed would then be required. In addition to all that, the team performing the maintenance would require proper training to bring everyone up to speed. This will not only take the process ahead with lightning-fast sped but also help in escalating matters and finding quick solutions to each of them. The process will improve itself drastically this way rendering better recognition to facility management services as they scale new heights in their domain.
