Planned Preventative Maintenance 

Planned maintenance, also known as preventative maintenance, is essentially adopting a proactive approach to your building's maintenance. This means that rather than waiting for problems to develop, your facility is regularly checked, and any issues are identified and repaired before an escalation can occur.

This takes the form of a planned maintenance schedule - a plan created by us at Cato Services in consultation with you. This plan will identify all areas of your business that may be of concern. We work alongside you to compile an asset register and agree on the right level of maintenance for each facility. This ensures that potential problems are minimised, therefore keeping your operation running smoothly, your staff happy and your shareholder's content.

Benefits of Planned Preventative Maintenance

Reduced Downtime

A maintenance issue may be serious enough to stop your site from trading, rendering you unable to prepare your staff for downtime , loss of productivity and therefore profits to your business.

Increased Safety

Obviously any property that isn't checked regularly could be a safety concern, as they are not being maintained frequently, rather being looked at as and when a problem arises. As the likelihood of large scale, dangerous and catastrophic failures and breakdowns are reduced it means improved safety for staff and customers alike.

Keeps the Facility Running

Having a planned maintenance schedule means your facility can keep running for longer periods of time without having to suffer downtime due to large scale repairs or break downs. Any maintenance work can occur out of work hours to ensure business continuity.

Overall Costs are Lower

With planned maintenance, large breakdowns and repairs are less likely and therefore costs are reduced.
