This past fall, JCR hosted our friends at the Chicagoland Apartment Association (CAA) for the 5th annual Maintenance Mania® competition. Consisting of eight maintenance-focused challenges, this season’s competitors tested their maintenance skills and knowledge of the industry as they competed to earn the title of Maintenance Mania® National Champion.  Maintenance Mania

Maintenance Mania is a national competition where apartment maintenance technicians are able to compete against each other in various skill-based games focused on frequent maintenance issues. The competition is offered by the National Apartment Association, a leading advocate for quality rental housing. Nearly 70 qualifying events are hosted nationwide by regional NAA affiliates, providing 20 top technicians the opportunity to compete at the National Championship to be held in June in San Francisco.

Racing against the clock, this year’s highly skilled maintenance professionals competed to see who was the fastest at water heater installation, key control, faucet installation, icemaker installation, fire & carbon monoxide safety installation, toilet conversion and ceiling fan installation. The event concluded with a race car competition, where competitors built a model car using at least one maintenance product or part, and raced it down a pinewood derby-style track.

JCR was proud to have served as host for the 5th year in a row – as our large facility provided the perfect venue for this dynamic competition.  Check out our video below!
