Regular maintenance prevents larger problems from occurring. Taking good care of equipment, machines, and facilities extends their overall life as well as keep them performing at their best. Regular maintenance gives technicians an opportunity to regularly “lay their eyes on” important components of a production line or specific system as well as a chance to catch any other potential problems that are lurking.

In addition, most maintenance technicians assigned to perform regular inspections, cleaning, or adjustments are entry-level or relatively new to a particular maintenance department. Regular maintenance is typically simple and straightforward and is an excellent training ground for a new technician to learn about a particular facility, business, or complex.
