Busy Hotel Lobby Caring for a healthcare facility is a never ending process and no day is ever the same. Maintenance needs change depending on the season, the weather and the activity occurring at the facility.

Health Facilities Management’s article “Asset Protection” discussed maintenance strategies for carpet. If ever there was an asset in a healthcare facility that was high-traffic and utilized by everyone, carpet and flooring is it. Carpet and flooring requires preventative, daily, interim and restorative maintenance.

Juggling daily maintenance is hard enough, let alone having to remember when to do preventative maintenance. The solution? PM schedules! A work order system, like FacilityDude’s MaintenanceEdge, that utilizes PM schedules can remove the burden of remembering when and how to perform reoccurring maintenance because the PM schedule generates a work order automatically.

Our PM schedules can be created with specific tasks and instructions – so no matter who performs the work, it is done consistently every time. And it’s easy to adjust the frequency of a schedule based on your facility’s needs. So if a weather event or a construction project requires more frequent maintenance to be completed, the schedule can be adjusted in a minute. Quick and easy.

So you can set it, forget it, and move on to the next thing on your to do list.
