Frequently Asked Question
Maintenance Coordinator Property Management FAQS
1. What Is a Maintenance Coordinator?
A maintenance coordinator confirms all aspects of a plant, facility or company are properly maintained. This contains all interior and exterior equipment and services. The position necessitates her to oversee all maintenance scheduling, make sure quality standards are maintained, and resolve any related challenges. She does not supervise the maintenance itself. Managing maintenance crews is the job of the maintenance supervisor, who commonly has specialized training in certain systems and operations.
2. What are the Responsibilities of a maintenance coordinator?
If the maintenance coordinator is overseeing a site with equipment or machinery, preventive maintenance (PM) scheduling is vital to effective daily operations. Following arranged schedules for minor and major maintenance prevents performance interruptions due to mechanical failure, which affect the company’s profits and adversely influence customer ratings. Failure to follow PM schedules can also nullify warranties and increase overhead through the need to purchase new equipment if upkeep is not properly and regularly executed.
Due to the scope of her responsibilities, a maintenance coordinator has to have a brilliant working knowledge of each of the services and pieces of equipment in her charge. She has to efficiently schedule in-house maintenance, as well as that provided by outside vendors.
