Maintenance Binder

When it comes to property maintenance, there seems to be a huge variety of options, from basic on-the-spot repairs to compliance maintenance that aims to keep your business compliant with any relevant legislation. In this blog, we will be looking at commercial property maintenance, what exactly it entails and how it can benefit your business.

So, what is commercial property maintenance?

Essentially commercial property maintenance is an all-round type of facility maintenance, which helps to maintain every single element of your building. This includes:

General Internal Maintenance

Internal maintenance looks at important interior areas in your facility, including walls, ceilings, flooring, plumbing and fixtures. Whether it is sudden repairs and breakdowns, such as lighting failures or bathroom flooding, or long-term maintenance, ensuring that your systems are regularly inspected so that unexpected breakdowns are limited, internal maintenance makes sure all areas are covered. Internal maintenance can also include organising a regular cleaning team to keep your property hygienic and inviting for your staff and customers.

General External Maintenance

External maintenance, both reactive and planned, covers external walls, roofing, windows and security solutions, and ensures that they are kept in optimum working condition.

Regulatory Compliance

Commercial property maintenance also includes compliance maintenance, meaning that you don’t have to worry about ensuring your facility is compliant to current business legislation, as this is all done for you by your property maintenance team who are well versed in every compliance law and regulation.

What are the benefits of commercial property maintenance?

Industry Expertise

Commercial property maintenance companies are experts in their field, and have a thorough, comprehensive understanding of every single aspect of property maintenance, from repairs to compliance to energy efficiency. Therefore, employing a commercial property maintenance program for your business means you really can be safe in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of, by professionals, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your company.

Cost Effective

Hiring an ongoing service like a commercial property maintenance program is a more cost-effective way to manage your facility. Rather than simply calling out a repair team as and when an incident occurs, which can be incredibly expensive, a property maintenance team will help to prevent any issues happening in the first place by creating a regular planned maintenance schedule.


As you know, time is a fragile thing, especially in a business environment, so being able to delegate certain aspects of the running of your company to external sources is quite literally worth its weight in gold. This will help open up your schedule, giving you the gift of time and allowing you to focus on other parts of your business.
