What exactly is Preventive Maintenance and why is it important?
Preventive Maintenance VS Reactive Maintenance
Prudent property owners prefer preventive maintenance compared to reactive. The difference between the two is that preventive maintenance is carefully planned and scheduled, while reactive maintenance is often unplanned and is only done when absolutely necessary. This means that with reactive maintenance, property owners would wait for something, like parts and tools, to break first before making a move to fix them.
Preventive maintenance is done regularly even without confirming that something has indeed broken down or is already causing potential danger to renters. With preventive maintenance, owners would do regular checkups on their property and immediately seeks to fix, update, or change parts and tools before they fully deteriorate or become damaged.
Advantages Of Preventive Maintenance
While it may seem that preventive maintenance is more costly compared to reactive maintenance, the truth is that having regular property maintenance would help you avoid spending more money in the future. The cost of repairs for heavily damaged parts is usually more expensive especially if these broken parts already led to accidents and caused more property damages within its vicinity.
