Maintenance is simply the work done regularly to keep a building in good functional condition. It involves basic tasks such as cleaning the floors, lubricating door hinges, etc. Overall, it is designed to preserve the value of the building and prevent major faults or issues from developing.
To ensure that these tasks are adequately managed and carried out, it is necessary to prepare a plan. A plan would specify all the tasks which are to be carried out and the scheduled date and time. It would also indicate who would be responsible for executing such tasks.
The tasks can be handled by a maintenance supervisor or contracted out to vendors. This would depend on the nature of the tasks included in the plan, as well as the facility management plan or policy already in place.
