Nobody’s happy when the heating breaks during a long, cold winter. Staff run out of extra layers to put on to keep warm, office visitors wonder why you keep your building so chilly, and you end up forking out a small fortune to get it fixed.
This is a prime example of how regular building maintenance could save you both hassle and money, as well as ensuring staff contentment. So, here are our top reasons for investing in your building’s maintenance, and ultimately increasing your building and staff performance.
By using preventative measures – that might cost a little bit of money – you end up saving cash in the long run. By regularly performing maintenance on your air conditioning, for example, you reduce the risk of it breaking beyond repair and then having to replace it entirely.
When your building is well maintained in terms of insulation, you’re not only cutting down on heating costs, but you’re simultaneously making your office a greener place to work. A win–win!
As we mentioned in the example above, staff wellbeing is hugely tied up with building maintenance. Your staff have to spend huge portions of their day in the office, so it’s important that their surroundings are well kept and that the building functions as it should do. This ultimately makes them more productive.
It might seem trivial in comparison to the other reasons, but keeping your building looking good puts out a positive image for current and potential clients. After all, your building is a reflection of your brand, and you want the impression you give off to be a good one.
