Why Preventative Maintenance Improves Your Bottom Line

May 21, 2024

A big part of what we do is designing, manufacturing, and installing new production processes or improving existing ones. This enables our clients to control humidity and create the perfect climate for their applications.

However, this isn’t where our job ends.

Just like your car requires an annual service, so does the equipment and machinery you use. We see maintenance as the equivalent of healthcare for our Dehum machines and always emphasize how an effective maintenance program shouldn’t be overlooked.

Every application starts with the building of the humidity control or accelerated drying design. This is also the beginning of a long-term relationship with a client. We don’t just set up your system and leave you to it.

Our engineers help to keep the systems at 100%, meaning no unexpected downtime that costs you money. They don’t just fix breakdowns, they predict address issues before they cause a bigger problem, keeping your operation running smoothly.

Why is Preventative Maintenance Important?

Preventative maintenance is a vital part of what we do. Here are the main goals of preventative maintenance:

  1. To reduce waste and ensure that an efficient, reliable, and continuous manufacturing, business, or service operation runs smoothly.
  2. To ensure that all equipment required for production is always operating at 100% efficiency and quality. If equipment starts to wear, it may not only affect productivity but also product quality.
  3. To complete daily inspections and thorough annual servicing that detect any minor problems before they become major issues.
  4. To reduce or preferably eliminate any Health & Safety risks that could be associated with machinery that has an undiscovered fault or issue.


The cost of a machine breakdown varies but what we can say for sure is that the price is for more than just labour and materials. When a breakdown causes production to stop, the true cost of a breakdown is much higher.

With the focus for most businesses being on the bottom line, the cost of downtime has a big impact on profitability.


How Dehum keeps your Business Operational

We provide bespoke on-site training to your team. These in-depth sessions include:

  • How to spot common faults
  • Changing filters
  • Resetting the machinery

In the unfortunate event that you do experience a breakdown, we will arrange for one of our experienced engineers to visit your site as a matter of urgency. With country-wide coverage, we get your machine back up and running as quickly as possible.

We can service or repair your machinery as a one-off visit, or you can enter into a service contract. The latter enables us to take on the responsibility to keep your machinery working in top condition and to detect any gradual deterioration in performance.

Last but not least, we provide you with a range of critical spare parts to keep on-site. By anticipating what parts will be required and having instant access to them, will allow maintenance, repairs, and breakdowns to be dealt with far more efficiently, either by our team or yours.

And in case you were wondering, yes, we can source parts for ALL dehumidifiers, rotors, and difficult to source electrical parts, not just the systems we supply.

Staying one step ahead of the competition has never been so important and running an efficient, reliable, and safe production process is a vital part of your success.

Our proactive approach to preventative maintenance will ensure your machinery is kept in perfect working order.

We would love to help you achieve this. If you would like to find out more about how we can help your business succeed, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling 01926 882624 or emailing
