How do you determine routine maintenance frequency?
I read some of the building’s equipment manual and some in-suite ones, and they all say periodic maintenance is required. I know common ones include generator, building HVAC and in-suite HVAC, fire safety, garage door, compactor, windows, garage wash/draining, etc. Are there any industry standards? (Or maybe some associations to the life of the equipment?)
Hi Willow, thanks for all your questions! If at least 10% of directors could take the initiative, like you, apartment owners, they would receive the best services and the lowest commissions.
This issue should be considered by the authorities of the industry. When this happens, it is very important to prevent than to correct.
But there are no industry standards.
We are going to contact service providers and ask them to share their views on your very important issues.
But as we recently found out, the biggest problem in condominiums is flooding. Sometimes water meters leak, sometimes someone forgot to turn off the water, sometimes the problem arose due to poor quality valves or unskilled plumbers did the job. Floods usually happen by accident and sometimes cost hundreds of dollars per flood. Therefore, it is very important to prevent this. We did some research and found some interesting information about innovative sensor systems designed to prevent floods. You can check this on the pages https://wccltd.com/intelligent-flood-leak-prevention/. Hope this can be helpful and hope the service providers can provide more clarity as well!
This is a short information.
