What’s Preventative Maintenance?

Preventive maintenance is a type of proactive maintenance that includes Inspect dishwasher for leaks to re-caulk showers, tubs, and sinks to prevent water damage to walls. PM keeps all of your property assets in good order and reduces unscheduled downtime and major repairs.

How PMs decreases downtime
Think about it in simple terms such as your car. Oil changes and regular servicing are part of a preventive maintenance schedule that ensures your car runs properly and without unexpected failure. If you ignore that maintenance schedule and miss service intervals, your car will depreciate in value and utility. The same goes for your vacation rental property. Our PM program can decrease property downtime. We achieve this by performing light PMs on every property corrective maintenance visits.

Benefits of PMs
There are more benefits of a short-term rental property preventive maintenance program than merely reducing the amount of unplanned downtime. Other benefits include:

– Extension of property asset lifetime
– Increased guest safety
– Less expensive corrective repairs
– Better margins and profits due to less property downtime
