“I love doing maintenance. It’s the best part of my week” – said nobody ever.
Let’s be honest. We all dread performing maintenance. Why?
- It’s boring. I’m a chemist and I’d rather spend my time using my instrument than maintaining it.
- It seems unnecessary. I’m a fan of what I call “sensory maintenance” – that water looks pretty clean, that pump sounds pretty good.
- I don’t always know what I should be doing for preventative maintenance.
