REGULAR MAINTENANCE OF COMMERCIAL BUILDINGSImdaad Facilities Management has been supporting Dubai and the region’s stellar growth with maintenance services across assets of all types. Nowhere is that more evident than in the provision of regular maintenance for commercial and mixed-use buildings. Commercial building maintenance involves the provision of regular inspections, servicing, tests, repairs, and replacements, which are designed to contribute to efficient operations, ensure health and safety, and affect preventive and precautionary measures instead of costly repairs and replacements. Supported by its sister companies providing complementary services for energy efficiency, sustainability, maintenance, and repair, Imdaad has grown to be relied on by its customers to deliver comprehensive services integral to their smooth-running operations and long-term value preservation.

Regular maintenance of a facility involves many interrelated activities that combine to provide a safe, healthy, and agreeable environment. These include:

  • Safety requirements such as security, hazard management, as well as fire prevention and control
  • Cleaning and sterilization services inside and outside buildings
  • Inspection, maintenance, and repair of equipment
  • Recycling and environmental solutions for waste management and sustainability
  • Automation and smart building management for energy efficiency


The benefits of regular maintenance for commercial buildings are proven and are an integral part of the management of any facility. The primary objective of regular maintenance is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for employees, residents, and visitors. Done properly, its long-term objective is to increase the value of an asset over its lifespan. This happens through the compounded benefits of regular maintenance and the extension of the overall life of an asset.


The foremost benefit of regular maintenance is its contribution to the safety of a facility’s users. Regular maintenance ensures that there are no hazards compromising people’s movements and activities. It also covers equipment, ensuring that it is running smoothly, inspections are held regularly, and repairs are done promptly. For example, fire prevention at a facility involves a comprehensive system of smoke detectors, alarms, fire extinguishers, and sprinkler systems. These require regular inspection and maintenance in order to be available when needed.

Imdaad Group’s subsidiary, Vision Safety, is dedicated to supporting clients with all their fire safety needs, ensuring compliance with safety regulations and building codes. Building codes and safety regulations are in place to protect the health and safety of building occupants, and compliance ensures that facilities can remain operational while protecting the tenants and visitors from risks.

Better Health

Regular maintenance plays a significant role in the improvement of air quality. Poor indoor air quality can risk the health and productivity of employees and visitors, as well as their overall satisfaction with the building. Regular maintenance of HVAC systems covers air-duct cleaning, filter replacements, and air circulation to improve air quality and create a healthier and more comfortable environment for everyone in the building.

Imdaad’s hard and soft facilities management services ensure that all areas at a commercial or mixed-use building are covered, and that air quality, hygiene, and sterilization are expertly handled in the interests of health and wellbeing.


Significant savings are made from the optimized use of machinery, particularly HVAC equipment. Regularly inspected and maintained machinery runs longer, and more efficiently, and reduces downtime and expensive repairs. Issues are identified before they become problems, equipment running costs are reduced through efficient operations, and costly interventions, repairs, and replacements are minimized.


Extreme climate conditions from heat, humidity, and salinity in the region often lead to high energy consumption, particularly during the summer months. Regular maintenance of HVAC systems, insulation, and air sealing can help to minimize energy loss and maintain indoor temperatures, improving energy efficiency, and reducing operating costs.

Imdaad has a wealth of case studies showcasing how clients can affect large savings on their energy bills by taking measures like analyzing the building access and usage and automating lighting and environment controls. This results in better management of their use, especially overnight and during downtimes.


Regular maintenance is essential to preserve the longevity of commercial buildings and to protect them from harsh weather conditions such as high temperatures, humidity, and sandstorms. Regular maintenance such as cleaning, painting, and repairing damage helps buildings maintain their structural integrity, thus extending their durability and lifespan.


Commercial buildings serve as a reflection of a brand's image and reputation. Regular maintenance of buildings can help to enhance their aesthetic appeal, making them more attractive to clients and customers. This includes regular cleaning of windows, painting, and repairs to maintain the overall look and feel of the building.
