The following is a list of advantages for using a commercial services maintenance company that can do it all for you, hassle free.
The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to prevent the failure of building critical equipment before it actually occurs. Most contractors will come to a site and deal with problems as they occur costing you a fortune when looked at on a larger scale. Preventive maintenance will not only save you time and money, but it will also improve system reliability, decrease system downtime and extend the life of your equipment and it’s parts.
By using a commercial services maintenance company, many times they are on site already maintaining your building, just as an employee would be, when problems do occur. Typical average emergency response times range from 2 – 4 hours, much less time than a general contractor you may hire, especially if you have to find a fair price first.
While systems maintenance is a large portion of most commercial services maintenance companies jobs, it does not take away from the concern for the aesthetic side of your property. Aesthetic maintenance includes: drywall repair, janitorial services, landscaping, snow removal, and more.
Maintenance testing is a top reason to use a company like HFCS. Imagine the insight that can be gained on a problem from someone who works in your building all the time, and has records of test results and maintenance actions taken. This data can be evaluated for trends and serve as the basis for decisions on appropriate testing frequency, need to replace or upgrade equipment and performance improvement opportunities that would normally be overlooked by your hourly repairman.
Tenants and occupants of buildings feel much more comfortable working with someone that they have met previously and can develop a working relationship with. Having multiple contractors come in an out of a tenant’s space is not only a bother and worrisome, but can effect their work as well.
Simplify building manager/owners time
Hiring multiple contractors for the various systems in and around your building can be a huge hassle and also out of the scope of knowledge of building owners and managers. Effective time management for owners and building managers can result in happier tenants, faster lease turnovers and a hassle free job. As HFCS says, “Relax, we got it.”
Peace of mind
It’s a nice feeling to know that your contracting company is there for you, and not to make a quick buck. Many contracting companies say you need an entire new system when a simple loose wire or new belt could fix a problem that arises. With a contracting company who is working for you at a fixed rate, this is never a concern. You can expect high quality of work with emergency decisions that can be made based on an expert in your building and it’s needs to operate effectively and efficiently.
