Hotel preventative maintenance is a process that aims to keep hotel assets and areas safe and functional for the best guest experience. Maintaining your hotel’s reputation would help in avoiding negative reviews.
Steps to Hotel Preventative Maintenance
- It’s important to ensure that the following are functioning properly:
- Air Conditioning systems
- Flooring and carpeting
- Refrigeration systems
- Wall paints, wallpapers, and wall decor
- HVAC systems
- Lighting fixtures
- Guest room TV units and services
- Room furnishings
- WiFi connections
- Faucets and plumbing
- Staff and guest computers
- Phone lines
It’s important to ensure that hotel compliance standards are set properly and all maintenance activities are consistently completed according to protocol.
Next, it is important to create a checklist that allows the Hotelier to keep track – of which assets are passing and failing inspections. This is to ensure the Hotel Staff Team remains rightly accountable for maintenance responsibilities.
Finally, the Hotelier needs to deploy a proper preventive maintenance plan. This could be a Maintenance Calendar. This particular calendar allows Hotel Managers to organize the tasks necessary to minimize equipment downtime and safety risk.
