7 tips for electrical maintenance in high rise buildings
Let’s start with a simple question…
Why is electrical maintenance in high rise buildings so important?
It’s no secret that house prices have become less affordable to home buyers these days.
High rise construction is helping the younger generations get into the property market.
The popularity of high rise continues to grow in city centres like Brisbane and Gold Coast.
Residential developers provide home buyers with modern, convenient living.
What this means for building managers is…
Not unlike residential property maintenance, High rise apartments have many maintenance needs.
If you want to keep your residents happy, you need to keep the property well-maintained.
Keeping your building in good condition is also in your own best interests.
If a high rise building goes without proper maintenance, it can soon turn into a liability.
And hundreds of happy residents can suddenly turn into an angry mob.
Pulse Electrical have long-standing contracts with building managers around Brisbane and Gold Coast.
So we’re experienced with industrial electrical services in high rise developments.
Here are 7 tips for electrical maintenance in high rise buildings…
Sort out the mess with an electrical audit
Have other electrical contractors burned you in the past?
If so, they’ve probably left you with an electrical mess for you to sort out.
This might be a good time for you to consider getting an electrical audit.
An electrician with poor customer service may also do a sloppy technical job.
And maybe they were careless about keeping up with the maintenance schedule.
When you get an electrical audit with Pulse Electrical, we’ll do a full check of your entire premises.
This will give you the full picture of the current status of your electrical systems.
An electrical audit will help you see what areas of your property are in of need attention.
Once the audit is complete, we can also give you a free quote for any necessary repairs or maintenance.
Establish an electrical maintenance schedule
As a high rise development building manager, you should be fussy about maintenance.
Preventative industrial electrical maintenance is an essential part of administration.
This is because the fewer breakdowns you have, the more money you make.
Pulse Electrical can customise a service schedule for your particular type of building.
If problems don’t get identified early, it can cause a more expensive issue down the track.
The fact is…
When you choose the wrong electrical company for your electrical maintenance…
It can get you into a lot of trouble.
A high rise building is much more complex than a single freestanding house.
An electrical mistake in a house might cost a homeowner a few hundred dollars to fix.
But a mistake across a high rise complex, can cost into the tens of thousands of dollars and even more.
So it’s important to go with a trusted electrical company.
