Take preventative measures at your property to avoid major repairs down the line.
Every hotelier knows how expensive major property repairs can be. This is why it’s so important to be proactive and take preventative measures to avoid making extensive repairs. Here are some of the suggestions you should take at your property.
First, you need to determine which operating systems are most vital to your hotel and you need to know the most significant risks that these systems face. Additionally, you should determine which systems will be most expensive or most time consuming to repair. These systems are the ones you should dedicate the most time and resources protecting and maintaining.
You and your maintenance team should invest time reading manuals and service bulletins to identify and understand your equipment life cycles to better anticipate the future failure dates of key items. You should document these dates and schedule replacement processes to ensure that these key components do not fail unexpectedly, leaving you to scramble and deal with the backlash.
Document Information on Parts
Identifying equipment and predicting when a part will fail is only helpful if you have documented part numbers, where to secure these parts, and how to install them. While keeping these records is undeniably time consuming, having this information on hand will help you save time and money when it comes to your hotel’s repair costs.
These are some of the things that you can do to avoid major repairs at your property. However, despite your best efforts, sometimes repairs are inevitable.
