The Difference Between Reactive & Planned Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining your commercial building or facility, there are two main approaches: reactive and planned maintenance.

Reactive maintenance is when any repair is carried out in response to a problem or issue that has already occurred.

Planned maintenance, on the other hand, involves scheduling regular inspections and repairs to prevent these problems before they happen.


Reactive Maintenance

Reactive maintenance may seem like a cheaper and easier option in the short term, it can end up costing more in the long run. By waiting until something breaks or malfunctions, it can lead to more extensive damage and more expensive repairs. In addition, reactive maintenance can result in downtime and disruptions to business operations, which in turn will cost you even more money.


Planned Maintenance

Planned maintenance, on the other hand, helps prevent these issues from occurring in the first place. By arranging regular inspections and repairs you can identify potential problems before they become major issues, reducing downtime and saving money in the long run.
