Preventive Maintenance Plan


Preventive maintenance consists of three elements: 1. Inspection of the items listed in this manual.Operation and Maintenance Service Manual for City Buildings A regular program of preventive maintenance. as covered in this manual. 2. The virtues of regular housekeeping and scheduled maintenance are well understood. will curb depreciation and improve both the appearance and performance of the various components in each building. Using this manual and the items that apply to the various buildings. dust and grime. when repair and adjustment can be made with least expenditure for time and replacement parts. These items can help detect or give indications of substandard performance that can be corrected before costly repairs are needed. 3. each building occupant or director can often uncover and correct a problem in its early stages. Section 1: Testing and Inspection Documentation Requirements Section 2: Maintenance Check List and Intervals . Housekeeping or cleaning of the various components of each building including the equipment can help prevent the build-up of dirt. as needed. Scheduled maintenance and lubrication. These impeded the operation of the various components including the mechanical elements. can minimize wear. improve operation and reduce costs. Less appreciated are the advantages of a thoroughly planned periodic inspection of the building components.
