What is Building Maintenance?
Building maintenance is an anticipatory procedure performed by facility maintenance teams to regularly look after the roofing, HVAC, lighting, electrical, exterior and interior, and plumbing of buildings and keep them in good working condition for the occupants. Upkeep problems left unchecked can turn into added operational costs, avoidable health and safety violations, and lose good business due to bad reputation.
