If you are a business owner who experiences customer traffic in your office, storefront, or other space, then you know that image is everything. Customers consider the look of your space to determine whether or not you have a quality business. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have a plan in place for reactive, preventive, and scheduled retail facilities maintenance for your business.
Tips for Working with a Contractor for Retail Facilities Maintenance
Business owners and facilities managers are busy by nature. One of the best things you can do to ensure your time isn’t wasted is to partner with a professional contractor and set up a plan of action custom fit to your needs. Some contractors offer service maintenance programs designed to save you time when something goes wrong.
This is when your contractor responds to emergency situations and on-demand services as you request them.
This is when your contractor has designed a planned maintenance program for your unique facility needs. Just like going to the dentist preventive cleanings, preventive facilities maintenance helps reduce the likelihood of future incidents where reactive maintenance would be needed.
This is when your contractor works at regular intervals throughout the year to ensure everything looks good and normal maintenance is performed. Scheduled maintenance is ideal for pressure washing and other routine maintenance services that keep your space looking its best.
Make sure to talk with your contractor about your specific needs for your unique space so they can help you determine which program works best your space and budget.
Types of Service Maintenance Programs
Depending on your space, there are many different services generally available to keep your facilities looking their best. Some of these services include:
- General carpentry/handyman repairs
- Minor and major remodeling
- Fixture installation and removal
- Electrical needs including installation and replacement of fixtures
