Building Maintenance Checklist

This building maintenance checklist can be used to develop a maintenance program tailored to the equipment in any specific building. Before developing the check list, a building equipment list should be compiled.

  • The manufacturer's suggested maintenance tasks and the frequency of such should be reviewed and incorporated into the preventive maintenance program.

  • Suggestions can for the most part, be done by the building staff. Some procedures will have to be undertaken by skilled tradesmen but it is left to the discretion of the building superintendent as to when they should be called in.
