You own/operate a business and have a lot to think about on a daily basis. Employees, suppliers, vendors, building maintenance; you think you have everything running smoothly and then one day your air conditioning system goes on the fritz or a pipe bursts. You thought that one employee who is kind of handy had it under control and was maintaining important systems like air conditioning, heating and plumbing, but it turns out he didn’t have the expertise (or the time) to really take care of the building.
Many businesses think it’s only necessary to call in the professionals when something breaks down, but the truth is that maintaining your building’s primary systems is more cost effective than waiting for something to stop working. Breakdowns in your plumbing system can be extremely costly due to the possibility of flooding, causing damage to carpets, drywall and electrical, resulting in costs to repair the damage and lost revenue while the repairs are being completed. A failing air conditioning or heating system will also cause lost time and productivity from your employees and may cause bigger problems, such as frozen pipes.
Having a team of professionals take care of your building is the smart choice. It’s also helpful to have people who specialize in heating, air conditioning, plumbing, carpentry and electrical all on one team, so you don’t have to maintain contracts with a number of different companies. So, yes, you should hire a professional maintenance company to make sure your building’s systems are running smoothly and avoid the headache (and cost) of major breakdowns.
