The University of Washington
Many times, we have helped to bridge the competing priorities of the budget-oriented procurement teams, with the building up-time oriented maintenance teams. Saving money is important for budget conscious facilities and we help our customers gain visibility into the full cost of repairs: for every $100 in maintenance materials cost, the average project requires between $235-$1,000 in labor. “By relying on The Part Works expertise, our customers save the cost of excessive wasted time researching hard to find parts, misidentifying parts, ordering (and returning) incorrect products, re-work due to poor quality off-brand replacements, long delivery delays, and other sourcing inefficiencies.”
Critical Kitchen Maintenance
Kitchens, like restrooms require flushing and checking each system. Ice machines can be a source for growing microbes if left to sit. Dried out floor drain traps can create odors. Janitorial closet faucets and service sinks need to be run and flushed as well.
Critical Maintenance for Restrooms
Some of the biggest risk for transmission of infection is in the restrooms. A regular flow of users, touching the same handles on toilets, faucets, soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, and entry doors can spread infection. Touch points can be addressed with touch-less solutions, or antimicrobial treated handles and touch-less surfaces.
Critical Maintenance Checklists
Every facility manager knows which systems are critical and must be operational at all times. Many facilities have established preventative maintenance schedules to keep critical systems running and plan for upcoming repairs and maintenance. But changing the basic operations of a building changes all of those plans. What happens if the building has been closed for an extended period?
Celebrating Our Veterans
