Benefits of Preventive Maintenance  

Of course, one of the most obvious benefits of implementing preventive maintenance is that you’re more likely to stay ahead of problems before they occur.

That’s the whole point, right?

But if you’re still not convinced, there are a few specific advantages you may want to consider:

  • Preventive maintenance will decrease business downtime and closures due to unexpected equipment failures;

  • Preventive maintenance will increase equipment life expectancy, so you’ll spend fewer dollars in the long run;

  • Preventive maintenance will ensure all equipment and employees work only during scheduled hours, eliminating the need for paying overtime due to unexpected machinery breakdowns, etc.

  • Preventive maintenance will significantly reduce safety risks for employees and customers, thereby reducing the costly risk of lawsuits and workers’ comp.

  • Preventive maintenance means less energy consumption for your assets and equipment due to high levels of operational efficiency, which will reduce your utility bills.

These are only a few of the specific benefits that accompany regular preventive maintenance.

Even if you own a small retail shop or food stand and don’t work with heavy machinery or equipment, preventive maintenance as it applies to your business will go a long way toward reducing costly accidents and damage.
