Having a checklist for maintenance helps to eliminate unplanned repair costs and stave off expensive hidden costs.
The End of Financial Year (EOFY) season is a good trigger, a timely reminder to review property maintenance and make certain it is a priority in the plans you have made for the upcoming year’s budget – just like you’d change the batteries in your smoke alarms at the start of daylight savings .
Maintenance almost seems a given because it ensures your property is always well-presented. However, in speaking to many customers, Programmed has often found that even when maintenance features on the budget radar, many key details are often overlooked.
With the daily pressures of ensuring a profitable bottom line along with other key business priorities, it can be difficult to ensure every detail of repair and maintenance is accounted for.
Yet, it’s the peeling paint, untidy grounds and dated spaces that people notice first.
Make sure you’re never in that situation with a templated checklist you can reuse at each EOFY or budget season. This will keep all areas of maintenance in check so nothing is overlooked. Keep this template easy to use, but comprehensive, listing both common areas for maintenance as well as those that are sometimes missed. A column for estimated costs means you can plan and budget accordingly, so you avoid expensive or unforeseen costs.
In thoroughly covering off everything, you can guarantee yourself of a site that always makes a great first impression.
