Employee working on an industrial floor. Making the Most of Your Plant’s Shutdown - Industrial Maintenance Ideas

Regard­less of the size of your facil­i­ty, a sched­uled shut­down is unde­ni­ably an invest­ment of both time and mon­ey, par­tic­u­lar­ly because of the loss of pro­duc­tion. At the same time, it’s also a win­dow of oppor­tu­ni­ty that is incred­i­bly worthwhile.

The key is to make sure that you can make the very most of the shut­down, ensur­ing that the great­est pos­i­tive impact is made. This kind of main­te­nance is nev­er a waste, but rather a direct invest­ment in the health and lifes­pan of your property.

What to Do Dur­ing Your Plan­t’s Shutdown

Have You Considered…

  • Make a detailed plan — Think through those aspects of your prop­er­ty that need atten­tion, and use that infor­ma­tion to cre­ate a check­list of all that you want this shut­down to accomplish.
  • Align your­self with the right pro­fes­sion­als — Take the time to research the trade pro­fes­sion­als that you will be work­ing with. It’s crit­i­cal to find expe­ri­enced, knowl­edge­able teams that are not only effi­cient, but also will­ing to work in and around the sched­ule of every­one else at work.
  • Floor­ing — Car­ing for your indus­tri­al floor­ing is not only ben­e­fi­cial for the safe­ty and longevi­ty of your prop­er­ty, but doing so dur­ing a shut­down ensures that you won’t need to try and com­plete a major repair while your plant is active.
  • Paint­ing - While a pro­fes­sion­al can cre­ative­ly find ways to work dur­ing pro­duc­tion time, paint­ing and main­tain­ing equip­ment while it is out of use is always the most ide­al option.
  • Indus­tri­al clean­ing — From dust removal to degreas­ing, indus­tri­al-strength clean­ing is a crit­i­cal ele­ment of prop­er­ty main­te­nance. Beyond clean­ing alone, it also allows you to inspect your equip­ment and find dam­age or leaks that might have been hid­ing under debris.
