Orangeville, ON (Harold Doan and Sons Ltd.) Establishing and implementing a preventive maintenance program for your door hardware can be a great asset for both businesses and residences. The benefits may include reduced emergency service calls, increased safety and security, and, of course, money saved.

A preventive maintenance program must be carried out on a regular schedule to be effective. The important part of scheduling is to establish a system that works for you, and then be consistent in maintaining it.

Potential problems can be eliminated with a good preventive maintenance program. An exit device that has lost a screw out of the arm, a door closer that has started squeaking, or a deadbolt that turns stiffly can all be potential problems that can be easily repaired if discovered early. If these problems go undetected they may develop into more costly and extensive repairs.

Using a checklist as you inspect hardware is helpful. Note the problems you find on the list and the date. After any repairs are made, put that date on the form. Keep the form on file for a sufficient period (6 months to 1 year) so that you can keep track of not only work completed but also spot trends or trouble spots.
