Published on October 17, 2022

If you are in charge of managing the maintenance of a commercial property, or you are a building owner, you should understand how important routine maintenance is to your employees’ health and safety. A well-maintained facility shows employees you care about their well-being and you are invested in their success. It also shows you are willing to do what needs to be done to provide them with a productive environment.

Facility managers and building owners have many responsibilities, which is why sometimes routine maintenance is overlooked or delayed. City Wide Facility Solutions will be the partner you need to ensure your routine maintenance is never overlooked. Your dedicated Facility Solutions Manager (FSM) will learn the ins and outs of your facility, schedule routine maintenance, and make sure every job is done right. Read more about all the benefits routine maintenance will have for your employees and commercial facility…

What does routine maintenance cover in commercial facilities? 

Routine maintenance involves more than just infrastructure upkeep. A preventative maintenance program like the one City Wide provides its clients offers routine maintenance for all areas of your facility, including:

  • HVAC systems
  • Fire protection systems
  • Ventilation and air filtration systems
  • Roofs
  • High-traffic areas
  • Floors
  • Parking lots
  • Entrances and exits

How does routine maintenance protect employee health and safety? 

Your commercial facility’s most valuable asset is your employees, and their health and well-being are paramount to your operation. From mold exposure to viruses, routine maintenance can prevent a wide number of hazards from affecting employee health and safety. If just one of the systems listed above fails, then your employees could be exposed to hazardous materials, communicable diseases, or an environment which makes work untenable. 

Routine maintenance will ensure your building’s environmental controls are maintained, high-traffic areas are cleaned, and safety measures are up to code and in working order. What sets City Wide apart from other providers is your dedicated FSM will get to know your facility. They will be on-site often conducting walkthroughs in order to spot potential issues they can address by scheduling routine maintenance services. 

Routine maintenance saves money and will help spend unused budget

Emergency repair services for HVAC systems and other systems in your commercial building are exceedingly expensive. Routine maintenance helps prevent the need for expensive repairs by making sure your equipment and infrastructure are in good working order. 

Routine maintenance can also include services you may not have considered, such as snow removal services. City Wide can schedule your snow removal before a winter storm is even forecast, so your facility is already on the provider’s list before the need arises. 

As the fiscal year comes to an end, your commercial facility may have unused money in your budget you need to spend. Routine maintenance is a great way to allocate money in your budget towards beneficial services which will save your business money in the long run. 

Your FSM will bring clarity to your routine maintenance

Not only will your FSM be your facility’s one point of contact for more than 20 facility services, but they will also manage your routine maintenance services for you. When you partner with City Wide, you can expect your FSM to provide:

  • Regular site visits
  • Proactive communication
  • Professional project management

They will anticipate your facility’s needs and schedule routine maintenance to make sure your operation runs smoothly, and your employee’s health and safety is protected.
