A comprehensive test covers the building's exterior structures, the interior structures and services and the grounds.

Services such as air conditioning, gas piping and fire alarm systems form part of the building interior and services in a building maintenance test.
The building's grounds and outdoor equipment are also covered in a building maintenance test. Some of the things under this category include playground equipment, retaining walls and foundation, parking lots and walkways, patios and landscape features such as plants and trees.
