One thing I have learned in the insurance business is that all buildings have a life span. All facets of the building need maintenance at some point in time. Planning on maintenance is not always thought of in ministry.


It's easy to overlook property maintenance for a number of reasons, including busy schedules and tight budgets. But it can also happen just because staff members are so familiar with the property that they don't recognize slowly developing problems or hazards.

With regular facility maintenance, you can avoid injuries to people, damage to your facility and costly insurance claims. Slips and falls, mold, HVAC failure and playground damage are just a few of the bad things that can happen when upkeep slips through the cracks. Potholes in the parking lot or disrepair of the sidewalk could lead to someone falling and injuring themselves. Failing to maintain the heating, ventilation, and cooling or electrical equipment could lead to a devastating fire. And clogged gutters, blocked drains or deteriorating roofs could lead to water penetrating the building and causing significant damage.

To avoid these scenarios, establish a regular inspection and maintenance program for your school's facilities, as the buildings will seldom improve with age. Be sure to plan and budget for regular maintenance and upkeep. When all is said and done, it is cheaper and easier to reroof a building than to deal with the disruption and expense of a water damage claim from a leaky roof.
