Tips For Your Building’s Preventative Maintenance

Tips For Your Building’s Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance can ensure the longevity of your equipment.

From lighting to HVAC, to plumbing, there is a lot that you need to keep an eye on and maintain to make sure everything in your building is functioning and can be used properly without any issues. The best way to take care of your building is through preventative maintenance. Thanks to preventative maintenance, you will help extend your building’s longevity and be able to address issues before they spiral out of control and result in high repair costs.


Your plumbing should be one of your focus points with preventative maintenance. Plumbing issues can very easily lead to burst pipes and massive flooding that can result in you needing to shut your building down while they are being repaired. It is common to struggle with plumbing issues because it is very easy for leaks and similar problems to go unnoticed. This is why you need to take advantage of preventative maintenance. Any time there is a leak or unusual noise that is a sign that you should immediately inspect your plumbing. Also, you should periodically use a flue-gas analysis to fire test any water heaters or boilers featured in your building.


The lighting in your building is another area that could use preventative maintenance. When it comes to lighting, preventative maintenance is crucial for energy savings and higher light quality. Preventative maintenance for lighting comes in the form of regular inspections for various issues, like for example, torn cables. Not only do you have to make sure your lighting is functioning and safe, but you will also need to make sure it is clean. You will need to dust lighting fixtures in your building and clean them to ensure the best lighting quality that you can get.


Everyone knows how important an HVAC system is to a building in regards to keeping people comfortable. The last thing you will want is for your HVAC to fail you at a time of great need, thus justifying the need for preventative maintenance. This is also important for extending the lifespan of your HVAC, which can be costly to replace. Keep in mind you should inspect your HVAC at least twice a year, with the changing of the seasons. Air filters though, should be changed monthly. Pumps, on the other hand,  should be lubricated annually and also checked for leaks, as well as upgrades for energy efficiency.
