 Five Reasons an Ongoing Maintenance Contract Is Good for Business

Though every busi­ness has unique needs and chal­lenges, there’s no deny­ing the impor­tance of qual­i­ty rou­tine main­te­nance. When some­thing goes wrong in your facil­i­ty, who do you call? More impor­tant­ly, will the ser­vice provider you con­tact pick up the phone and be able to help you in a time­ly fash­ion? And wouldn’t it be bet­ter to pre­vent this sit­u­a­tion alto­geth­er? If you find your­self strug­gling to answer these ques­tions, it’s time to re-eval­u­ate your cur­rent facil­i­ty main­te­nance protocol.

Let’s out­line five rea­sons an ongo­ing main­te­nance con­tract is good for your business.

Ben­e­fits of Ongo­ing Maintenance

1. Pre­vent Prob­lems From Growing

Of all the dif­fer­ent types of main­te­nance out there, pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance is per­haps the most impor­tant. Per­form­ing inspec­tions, paint­ing equip­ment, repair­ing floor joints, etc. may not be the most excit­ing tasks, but when per­formed prop­er­ly, these efforts help keep every part of your facil­i­ty func­tion­ing. With­out this rou­tine main­te­nance, you’re more like­ly to run into mal­func­tions, haz­ards, and eye­sores, which will all require some degree of repair. Over time, these repair costs will great­ly exceed the amount you invest in pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures. If your facil­i­ty is prop­er­ly main­tained, you won’t expe­ri­ence as much work stop­page, so you will remain ful­ly oper­a­tional at all times. In oth­er words, enter­ing an ongo­ing main­te­nance con­tract will save you time and mon­ey while extend­ing the lifes­pan of your assets. 

2. Con­sis­ten­cy Where It Counts

Con­tin­u­ous main­te­nance con­tracts also have an edge over one-time repair projects because they offer a busi­ness with much-need­ed con­sis­ten­cy. A qual­i­ty con­tract and plan will clear­ly state what types of work are and are not includ­ed in the terms and con­di­tions, out­line costs on a month­ly, quar­ter­ly, and/​or annu­al basis, and offer some type of qual­i­ty assur­ance. As such, a busi­ness can get a bet­ter grip on its bud­get and feel con­fi­dent that its main­te­nance con­trac­tor will con­tin­ue pro­vid­ing high-qual­i­ty ser­vices as agreed upon. Com­pare this peace of mind with the headache of late response times, missed calls, shod­dy work, improp­er sched­ul­ing, and unclear costs — the win­ner is obvious.

3. Eval­u­ate and Adapt as Needed

Just because an ongo­ing main­te­nance con­tract is con­sis­tent doesn’t mean its con­tents are set in stone, how­ev­er. The best main­te­nance con­trac­tors are con­stant­ly adapt­ing to cus­tomer needs. Indeed, the only way for main­te­nance ser­vices to con­tin­ue pro­vid­ing the best pro­gram for a client is to spend plen­ty of time in their facil­i­ty, get­ting to know the strengths and weak­ness­es of their oper­a­tion. You want a con­trac­tor that works the way you do so you can become more and more suc­cess­ful — this is made pos­si­ble by build­ing a rela­tion­ship with an expe­ri­enced, com­mu­nica­tive, and adapt­able provider. At Kaloutas, we will work around your sched­ule to adapt to your needs. Addi­tion­al­ly, we are qual­i­fied to han­dle mul­ti­ple trades in your busi­ness, so if we have the plea­sure of doing busi­ness with you more than once, we will already be well adapt­ed to your needs, sav­ing you time, mon­ey, and the runaround of hav­ing to find mul­ti­ple contractors. 

4. Stay Safe and Compliant

Busi­ness­es in just about every indus­try must take great care to keep their peo­ple safe and to remain com­pli­ant with rel­e­vant codes and reg­u­la­tions. Achiev­ing these goals with­out the help of an expert facil­i­ty main­te­nance con­trac­tor is an uphill bat­tle, to put it light­ly. There are sim­ply so many bases to cov­er that it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to mat­ters like FDA, OSHA, and/​or GMP com­pli­ance. By enter­ing an ongo­ing con­tract with an expe­ri­enced main­te­nance ser­vice provider, you can rest assured that they will keep your busi­ness safe and com­pli­ant to the best of their abil­i­ty, thanks to their rel­e­vant skills and knowl­edge. Kaloutas not only offers very expe­ri­enced team mem­bers for any job at your busi­ness, we often have the sole rights to prod­ucts and exclu­sive cre­den­tials to high­ly sen­si­tive build­ings. We can offer you peace of mind that you are work­ing with a knowl­edge­able, expe­ri­enced, and most impor­tant­ly, trust­ed partner. 

5. Retain Your Reputation

Keep­ing up with facil­i­ty clean­ing and main­te­nance isn’t mere­ly about cost sav­ings and com­pli­ance — it’s also about appear­ances. Even if your work­place doesn’t allow access to cus­tomers, your employ­ees’ work­place envi­ron­ment is essen­tial — no one wants to keep work­ing in a place that’s falling apart. Hir­ing a reli­able main­te­nance provider will help you main­tain a pos­i­tive rep­u­ta­tion and keep your peo­ple pro­duc­tive and proud of their work. Main­te­nance also pro­vides a clean­er facil­i­ty, which results in few­er employ­ee sick days and injuries, sav­ing you time and money.
