General repairs and maintenance might look overwhelming, expensive, or even unnecessary to building owners, especially when building services appear to be working properly. However, good and continuous building maintenance is essential for various reasons.

Buildings degrade over time due to several factors such as weather, usage, mechanical depreciation, and others. When these concerns go unsolved, they can degrade user experiences, create unsafe and unhealthy conditions, and even incur bigger and more unexpected expenditures than regular building maintenance costs.
