Fix it before it breaks.

Preventive maintenance (or preventative maintenance) is regularly scheduled inspections, tests, servicing, and replacements of wear-items. Its purpose is to “catch small problems and fix them before they develop into bigger ones.”

Not all companies or organizations have the resources necessary to invest in a full-fledged preventive maintenance program. However, many experts agree that even a basic preventive maintenance program can save companies a lot of money in the long run. Outsourcing this to a mechanical contracting company is an option to spend less without compromising quality.

According to a study conducted by the Technical Assistance Research Programs, every $1 spent on preventive maintenance can save a company $4-$6 in future repairs and downtime costs.

A well-run preventive maintenance program can also extend the life of equipment, reduce unplanned downtime, and improve overall safety.

It is important to note that preventive maintenance is not the same as predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance uses data collected by sensors to predict when a piece of equipment is likely to fail. Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, is based on regularly scheduled inspections and servicing regardless of whether there are any signs of impending failure.

Some common examples of preventive maintenance tasks include:

  • Cleaning and lubricating parts
  • Adjusting tension on belts and chains
  • Checking fluid levels
  • Inspecting electrical connections
  • Tightening bolts and screws
  • Replacing worn-out parts
