Five Questions To Ask Your Facility Maintenance Contractor

MaintenX prides itself on our commitment to customer satisfaction. We work closely with each client to address current and future maintenance problems, creating solutions for greater efficiency and facility performance. If you’ve worked with us before, you know that MaintenX technicians and staff always put your needs and priorities first. 

However, if you haven’t worked with your local MaintenX team, you may have some questions regarding service, experience, and pricing. Regardless of the subcontractor you choose for your facility maintenance work, you should be asking these questions before the job begins:

What are my immediate concerns? Every facility has underlying maintenance issues that only the trained eye can see. Your maintenance contractor should be able to spot immediate issues and help you solve them before they turn into disasters. This will be the foundation of your preventative maintenance plan with MaintenX. 

How much can I save with preventative maintenance? Preventative maintenance is designed to help you save money long-term on emergency repairs and reactive maintenance services. However, the percentage of your maintenance budget that these preventative measures can cut varies from business to business. Talk to your maintenance contractor to set realistic cost-savings goals for your preventative maintenance plan. 

What appliance and equipment upgrades should I start budgeting? Some appliances and equipment can and should be maintained until the end of its service life. However, there will also be equipment that is more costly to repair than it is to replace. Talk to your technicians before deciding to keep or upgrade your current facility equipment. 

Am I up to health and safety standards for my industry? Maintenance services aren’t just about efficiency. They’re about maintaining a clean, safe, and healthy environment for your tenants and staff. Your maintenance contractor will help you better understand the standards of clean water, air quality, and waste disposal as well as help you prepare for emergencies at your facility to keep its occupants safe. 

How can I better prepare for facility emergencies? Emergencies at commercial facilities not only cause panic, but can cost you greatly if you’re not prepared. A burst pipe in an office or major roof damage after a storm could shut your doors for weeks if you don’t have a disaster plan in place. Your MaintenX team can help you create one customized to your facility.
