Maintenance planning is an important process that helps centres ensure their property and equipment is well-maintained. By creating a plan, centres can schedule regular maintenance tasks and track the necessary supplies and parts. This helps to prevent unexpected breakdowns and keeps the centre running smoothly. In today’s blog post, we’ll discuss what maintenance planning is and why it’s important for child care centres. Stay tuned!
What is maintenance planning?
Maintenance planning is a business strategy to ensure your facilities are in top shape and that you have adequate resources to keep them that way. By understanding what your centre needs to be maintained, a plan is created highlighting all those needs. Identifying the following is key to maintenance planning:
What – What the task is?
Who – Who is responsible for taking care of the task?
Why – Why the task needs to be maintained?
When – When will the task need to be completed and how often?
Identifying the what, who, why and when of your centre.
Here at Mathiou Services, we see maintenance planning playing a critical role in the industry and is something we as a business strive to help our clients manage and implement into a scheduled maintenance plan. From doing the walkthrough of a centre to understand the who, what and why. Then going back and creating the maintenance plan and scheduling the property maintenance plan to implement. We are with you for every step of the process!
Why is maintenance planning so important and what does it entail?
There are many reasons why maintenance planning is so important. One of the most important is that it helps keep your property in top condition. This includes identifying necessary repairs and preventive measures, as well as developing a budget and schedule for completing these tasks. By doing this, you can avoid costly repairs and clean-up projects, decreased productivity due to time spent away by staff or clients, and more.
Another important reason to maintain a plan for your property is that it can save you money in the long run. Proper maintenance plans ensure that small problems don’t become big ones, and that you’re not paying for repairs that could have been prevented. Additionally, maintenance planning makes a centre more attractive to current and potential customers. When a facility is neatly maintained and there is no traces of damage or possible hazards, a customer will be more enticed to enrol or keep their child enrolled. They would likely seek an alternative if their current child care centre had no maintenance plan in place but other centre did.
