Maintenance Services

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)

WS Electrical provides both Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) and Reactive Maintenance services to our customers across the UK. 

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) helps to avoid equipment failures, breakages, unexpected maintenance costs, and disruptions from reactive works. PPM is an effective preventative strategy that helps to ensure the smooth operation of the property and avoid the need for reactive maintenance interventions.

By scheduling regular maintenance checks and repairs, PPM helps to identify and address potential problems before they lead to significant failures or safety hazards. Overall, PPM helps to extend the life of the property or asset and maximise its value over time.

Reactive Maintenance

Reactive Maintenance can offer some benefits, particularly in terms of flexibility and short-term cost savings. With a reactive maintenance approach, equipment and systems are only repaired when a failure occurs, allowing for greater flexibility in terms of scheduling and resource allocation. In addition, since no maintenance is performed until it is absolutely necessary, there is no need to spend money on regular inspections or preventative maintenance. This can result in short-term cost savings, as well as higher equipment utilisation rates. 

However, it is important to note that these benefits are typically short-term, and the long-term costs of reactive maintenance can ultimately outweigh the initial savings. In particular, reactive maintenance can lead to higher repair costs, equipment downtime, and reduced productivity.

Reactive Maintenance v PPM

The choice between Reactive Maintenance and Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) depends on various factors, such as the type of property or asset, its criticality, age, and condition, and the budget and resources available. In general, PPM is considered a more proactive and cost-effective approach to maintenance as it aims to prevent problems from occurring and can help extend the life of equipment and systems.

On the other hand, reactive maintenance can offer more flexibility in terms of scheduling and resource allocation, and it can be useful for less critical equipment or systems that can be replaced easily.

Ultimately, the best approach is to find a balance between reactive and proactive maintenance strategies. Reactive maintenance can be used as a backup plan for unexpected failures or emergencies, while PPM can be used to prevent those failures from occurring in the first place.

By combining these two approaches, you can help ensure that your property or asset operates efficiently, effectively and with minimum downtime, while also maximising its lifespan and value over time.
