In commercial, industrial, and residential settings, maintenance is the repair, inspection, or replacement of essential devices, machinery, equipment, building infrastructure, and utilities. This term has evolved to include other terminologies that express various cost-effective techniques to maintain operating equipment. Maintenance takes place either before or after a failure.
The month-long observance provides a platform for industry-certified retailers and people involved in device repair retail and supply chains to promote integrity in their service delivery. Reliable, trustworthy service must be the standard on all jobs, big and small. Not only should customers be able to find what they need, but they must also be able to trust the repair service provider to get it done right.
