The Importance of Preventative Maintenance Plans

Preventative maintenance is like fixing the roof when the sun shines: you’re not at risk of any damage from bad weather but, by thinking ahead, you save yourself additional problems. But sometimes it seems too costly or too much trouble to get up that ladder.

Your home or your buy to let property represents a substantial investment; the value of which will, over time and without a proper maintenance schedule, degrade. By instituting proper planned and preventative maintenance, you can fix small problems before they become big problems, saving you both time and money.

One popular misconception is that preventative maintenance can be unnecessarily costly. At RB Surveyor Services, we can help you put a planned and preventative maintenance plan in place that will be cost effective when compared to expensive emergency reactive maintenance.

The Value of a Planned and Preventative Maintenance Plan

A planned and preventative maintenance plan will prevent problems now while they’re cheap and simple to fix before they become huge, costly undertakings. Keep trees under control before they impact on electrical wires. Check the roof, and the guttering too. Fix minor leaks in the bathroom and kitchen and refresh perished caulking. Check and double check the structure of your building, its wiring and its plumbing so you can catch minor problems before they become major ones.

Remember that proactive maintenance, whilst potentially time consuming, can be conducted on buy to let properties during the period when the property is vacant between tenants, and that dripping tap or that slipped tile can cause major structural problems if left unchecked.
