PDM’s Preventive Maintenance Tips
Emergency response is overrated compared to emergency avoidance. Maintenance works!
Dirt is the #1 cause of higher utility bills and repairs. Putting off maintenance is inviting an inevitable emergency, and a more expensive, frantic outcome! Since everything wears out, emergency repairs are going to occur unless you’re willing to avoid them with preventive maintenance.
PDM specialists can inspect and evaluate your systems, advise of any maintenance or repairs needed, and provide the optimum settings needed for safe, efficient operations, all of which can help you avoid any unwanted breakdowns this winter and help lower your operating costs.
PDM maintenance service works to remove worry, lower your blood pressure and operating costs. Let the PDM Clean Team check for hidden plumbing and HVAC maintenance problems before a breakdown occurs. Every connection matters. Learn about our Health & Safety Maintenance Plan.
Did You Know?
90% of breakdowns are due to poor maintenance.
Your furnace and air conditioning can start 70 times a day to keep you comfortable. Dirt can raise energy cost 10-30%, increase breakdows by 70-75% and add 5-20% to repair costs.
And if it’s been years since your last check-up, you can be sure the accumulated dirt and neglect are impairing your unit’s efficiency and putting you at risk of an uncomfortable breakdown.

Home insurance typically does not cover flood damage.
Stop periodic water problems, prevent the spread of mold with a new sump pump.
If everything in your basement was ruined in a flood tomorrow, could you afford to replace it all?
Water generally seeps into the basement because water pressure was building up around your foundation. Water naturally seeks the path of least resistance and enters through cracks in your walls or floors. And if it stays wet you may see unhealthy black mold growing. Our job is to design a way to collect water seeping from the walls, or floor drain, through a series of pipes that empty into a sump pit. The sump pit is placed at the lowest point in the basement. A sump pump then expels the water and keeps your basement dry.
A 2nd option is to replace drain tiles outside the foundation. Check your insurance policy before a problem arises and learn what disasters are not covered by insurance. Call PDM for free flooding advice.
