Periodic Inspections & Testing For Building Maintenance Equipment
FLS provides 30 day, annual/visual, and 5 year inspections, as well as load testing of building maintenance equipment. We typically work with organizations who want to ensure their building maintenance equipment is being inspected by professionals who know what they are doing. They don’t want the hassle of managing and manually documenting their annual inspection program. Others want the security of knowing their inspections are not going to be forgotten or overlooked. Our field services group provides solutions to address all these concerns.
