Preventive maintenance vs corrective maintenance

Preventive maintenance vs corrective maintenance

Most maintenance managers and professionals push toward a planned preventive maintenance strategy and try to move away from reactive, corrective maintenance. Planned maintenance, after all, is predictable, and if done right, extends the life of assets.

Preventive maintenance for car owners involves regularly scheduled inspections, replacements, and adjustments to prevent potential issues and extend the lifespan of the vehicle.

On the other hand, corrective maintenance refers to repairing or replacing components after they have failed or malfunctioned.

While preventive maintenance helps avoid unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs, corrective maintenance addresses issues that have already occurred, often leading to higher repair costs and potential safety risks if neglected.

Car owners can save time and money in the long run by prioritizing preventive maintenance to keep their vehicles in optimal condition.
