There comes a time when a piece of equipment, or infrastructure, can fail without warning. It’s never pleasant, and we understand how much it can affect your business. This is where reactive maintenance work can come in to save the day, and we are happy to say that this is a service we offer!

In this blog, we will explain a bit about what reactive maintenance is and also what it covers to hopefully provide some peace of mind and provide some tips on how to avoid needing it in the first place.

What is reactive and preventive maintenance?

As a facilities management company, we have reactive maintenance strategies in place, but we hope to avoid using them through preventive maintenance.

Should an emergency occur at work, we are on hand to deal with any issues to bring the operating condition back to normal. In addition, emergency maintenance is performed as soon as possible so businesses can return to being fully operational. This is what we call reactive maintenance.

However, by implementing a straightforward proactive maintenance strategy, we hope to reduce the chance of any issues occurring by ensuring good maintenance planning is carried out.

Preventive maintenance aims to reduce the need for reactive maintenance, as we can make sure any potential issues are remedied before they become a problem! Please get in touch on 01444 812 171 if you would like to discuss setting up a plan.

What reactive maintenance do we carry out?

There are many types of reactive maintenance work, some more time-consuming than others, thus requiring a higher maintenance cost. However, we are happy to offer these services when our clients are in need!


Have you ever had a pipe burst or a sink stop working whilst at work? Perhaps the pipes are blocked and causing an overflow? Our plumbers can promptly be on site to remedy the issue and prevent further damage.

Electrical appliances can go wrong; we’re no strangers to it! However, if a circuit board stops working or lighting fixtures break, it can cause havoc.
