More control over routine maintenance
Larger commercial buildings may have in-house or contracted maintenance supervisors and staff for a variety of maintenance functions including: grounds maintenance, building systems and heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance and even for routine cleaning. The condition of the building is a direct reflection on the professionalism of building managers and maintenance staff.
Indoor environmental quality
increasingly poor maintenance of building systems is being linked to loss of productivity and illness. SBS (Sick Building Syndrome) – headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, respiratory irritation, loss of productivity. SBS symptoms clear up when an occupant leaves the building. BRI (Building Related Illness) related directly to a specific pathogen within the built environment.
Increased cleaning and maintenance frequency
Programmed maintenance protects and extends the use-life assest, such as floor coverings, while providing a more pleasant, productive work environment for building occupants. Further, the impression of a company, based on the perceived quality of its offices and building, directly impacts customers and investors.
