Keep reading to find out the difference between reactive and planned/preventive maintenance, why it is so important, and why you should team with Hays Service with your planned/preventive maintenance endeavors:

The Difference Between Reactive vs. Preventive Maintenance

Reactive maintenance takes place after a problem has occurred, costing companies hundreds or thousands of dollars in repair. Planned/preventive maintenance occurs before a problem presents itself, which increases the longevity of equipment and a company’s bottom line.

In the past, reactive maintenance was how companies across the world conducted their operations. But, a new way of thinking has woven itself into the current era. Businesses seek companies that have extensive experience with planned/preventive maintenance.

Hays Service has many predictive maintenance services that are used to spot a potential problem using vibration analysis, thermal imaging and analytics. Our talented and highly trained technicians and mechanics, coupled with our advanced testing equipment, is the reason why our predictive maintenance service is so successful.

Why Choosing Preventive Maintenance is So Important

We believe that operations should center around planned/preventive maintenance. That’s why we go the extra mile to team with companies, just like yours, to service their equipment. Consider the following benefits of preventive maintenance:

  • Eliminates downtime
  • Improves employee morale
  • Increases the longevity of equipment
  • Increases your credibility
  • Protects your reputation
  • Saves money

We’re proud be part of a business’ success story. We have helped many companies thrive after implementing our preventive maintenance approach. If you’re interested in partnering with us, contact our team. We look forward to hearing from you!
