Tips For A Successful Preventive Maintenance Strategy

Facility Maintenance Plans for 2022

With the start of a new year, it’s time to look at how you’ll map out your facility maintenance plans in 2022. The challenges of the previous two years have taught us a lot about the future of the workplace. It has also reinforced the importance of an all-encompassing Integrated Facility Maintenance system. Today, we’re going to look at six areas where a LESCO 360 IFM program can help make your job a whole lot easier.

As many businesses adopted hybrid work environments to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, it’s time to reassess cleaning schedules and space usage — especially as workers continue with those schedules this year. IFM can help you monitor, evaluate, and assess how your current employees or tenants use their workspace. With reduced foot traffic, you may need to shift away from dedicated desks and offices towards co-working or shared desk policies. LESCO’s Integrated Facility Management can help you decide if this is the right choice for you.

Smart Technologies

Taking the next leap in monitoring, IFM also integrates with Smart technology to track and streamline facility usage. As a basic example, the thermostats in your facility can be controlled remotely via apps linked to your Smart system. From within your LESCO Dashboard, you can also analyze energy expenses to get a better feel for the effectiveness of your Smart systems.

Maintenance Schedules

IFM also can help you determine your weekly, monthly, and annual cleaning schedules. With reduced foot traffic, do you need to clean your floors as frequently? How often should you disinfect hard surfaces?

While landscaping is dependent on weather, your parking lot services will likely see a reduced need for maintenance due to fewer on-campus employees each day.

Of course, unplanned maintenance from vendors such as plumbers and electricians is always just a phone call away with our dedicated Help Desk Team.

Preventative Maintenance

Nothing is worse than having the HVAC system break down in the middle of summer. Preventative maintenance with a LESCO 360 Integrated Facility Maintenance program ensures that the likelihood of that ever happening is minimal. IFM plans for annual inspections and preventative maintenance so that your assets are always operating in peak condition with fewer repairs.

Predictive vs Prescriptive Maintenance

Of course, things do eventually break. Predictive and Prescriptive maintenance are both proactive methods within a traditional IFM process. Regardless of your preferred method (though we will help you make the best choice between the two), they help you plan for future repair costs. It’s an effective way to keep you on budget and prepared for what lies ahead this year.
