Do you find that you experience property maintenance issues at the most inopportune moments, costing you both time and money?
No matter what time of day or night, just one simple phone call to our 24/7 Magna Property Services helpdesk will ensure that a suitable tradesman is sent to your site quickly to rectify the problem and get your business back up and running efficiently in no time.
Reactive maintenance is quite simply ‘reacting’ to an issue, such as a breakage/ breakdown, as it occurs. As opposed to planned maintenance, where you inspect and maintain your buildings fabric and equipment to avoid possible issues, reactive maintenance covers those eventualities that you just cannot predict or plan for. Reactive maintenance services ensure that any unexpected breakage/ breakdowns, whilst frustrating, are fixed quickly, with minimum disruption to your business.
It is impossible to predict and address every issue before they arise and so a reactive maintenance service is vital for every business. Reactive maintenance is often supplemented with a planned maintenance programme, but whatever your approach, below we have included some of the benefits associated with having a reliable reactive maintenance partner:
Buildings are complex and no matter the plans in place, things can go wrong. A robust reactive maintenance service allows you to react when the unexpected happens and helps to keep your business trading.
As always, it will be better to prevent issues rather than react to them, but when a fault does arise having a reactive maintenance service in place can get your facility back up and running safely and to appropriate standards – meaning your employees are working in a safe environment.
An Magna Property Services reactive maintenance service covers you for the unexpected whilst also keeping the associated costs of reactive servicing to a minimum.
Having a dedicated reactive maintenance team, like MSL, on hand means that you will need fewer staff to manage any issues that may occur. With a simple phone call, you can relax and be safe in the knowledge that the problem is being fixed, leaving you and your staff to concentrate on the day-to-day running of your business.
It is clear that a reactive maintenance service is a necessity for all organisations however, there are a number of disadvantages associated with this approach if adopted in isolation. We wanted to include these below so you can make an informed decision about whether to rely solely on a reactive maintenance service or to include a planned maintenance programme too:
Shorter Life Expectancy – Reactive maintenance does not pro-actively assess the condition of a property’s fabric and therefore small issues and problem areas are not identified and rectified, meaning the likelihood of an unexpected maintenance problem is higher and potentially more costly.
Unpredictability – Reactive maintenance focuses on addressing problems once they occur. A reactive maintenance service does not allow you to predict when these problems will arise, meaning you cannot plan for them.
Less Control Over Budget – The unpredictability of maintenance issues means that you may be hit by unexpected costs that may not have been budgeted for. It is always sensible to have some budget available for unexpected maintenance requirements.
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.
Unexpected Downtime – A maintenance issue may be serious enough to stop your site from trading and you are unable to prepare your staff for the downtime and the loss of productivity and profits to your business.
