What is Facilities Management and Why Do You Need it?

A company’s physical environment – whether it is a retail space, restaurant or office building – says a lot about how who your company is and how it operates. Facility management keeps spaces in proper operating conditions through routine and scheduled maintenance. A well- maintained facility creates a safe working environment, reduces energy output costs, and makes all business functions run smoothly and efficiently.

A strong facilities management program can include janitorial duties and floor maintenance inside, and proper landscaping and snow removal outside. These services can help attract and retain customers.

Proper facility management also ensures the premises is safe. The regularly scheduled care and upkeep of a company help employees and clients safe. The cleaning and replacement of equipment and utility systems keep the facility running smoothly. Additional facility management services include replacing air filters to guarantee better air quality, cleaning the coils in Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) units, and water jetting plumbing to prevent clogs.

Finally, facility management can help prevent equipment failures through preventative maintenance. When your critical systems stop working, it can be costly and troublesome to fix. Proper preventative maintenance can prevent these extra expenses and limit the amount of downtime for your business.

Facility management is a very important aspect of any business or organization. When someone is in charge of managing the safety, security, and regular maintenance of the building and equipment of a business, you’ll find that safety for all increases, while repair costs and injuries decrease.
