What does a general maintenance service include?
General maintenance services cover a broad range of tasks. You might engage your handyman to work on a specific job or tick off a long list of maintenance tasks around your home, yard, or workplace.
Here are some of the most common general maintenance tasks and what you can expect:
Your maintenance worker can help do minor repairs and deep cleaning jobs around your home. This includes replacing filters and other small parts that wear out over time, repairing tiles, patching up holes, filling cracks, touching up paint, unclogging drains, washing windows, pressure washing walls, cleaning vents, and so much more. Your general maintenance expert will bring their equipment or use what’s available at your home, working through tasks in order of priority.
Commercial building maintenance
Site maintenance workers are often employed temporarily or on an ongoing basis to keep commercial buildings in good repair. Their duties and responsibilities can include maintaining car parking areas, cleaning roofing and gutters, retouching paint, cleaning internal glass walls and doors, and keeping the garden area neat and tidy.
Outdoor and garden maintenance
Most maintenance jobs include a mixture of landscaping, gardening, and handyman work around the yard. If you have a deck or patio, your maintenance technician can re-seal it, along with other wooden fixtures like fences and railings. They can clear pathways, mulch garden beds, remove weeds, and compost garden waste. They’ll even wash bins using water, soap, and a scrubbing brush.
Car and bike maintenance
While it’s not a typical maintenance worker duty, many are skilled in maintaining specific equipment. This includes cars, bikes, and even mowers. Unless they’re a qualified mechanic, maintenance tasks will generally be limited to cleaning, pumping tires, bike hanging, plus changing the oil and other minor parts.

A bird nesting at the top of pillar - we need a deterrent for birds, I have jack anti bird strips and liquid nails. Bird poo is at the base of the pillar where the birds nest. - this needs to be removed as it is on the deck of a children's playground A slippery ramp is also in the children's playground - we would like this slime removed and treat the concrete so it will not keep growing. Something like colourbond fastened to a gate and wall is what our Pastor thinks would prevent a child from escaping from the playground, but we are open to suggestions. The child climbed from the deck onto the wire fence and jumped over - this is a bit hard to describe. A cupboard for cleaning and toilet products - we would like part of the shelf removed so brooms and mops can be stored there also. A RapidStorage 900x940x1800mm Wire Mesh Storage Locker bought from Bunnings that needs to be assembled and put outside to house gas bottles. - Due date: Before Saturday, 23 September 2023

Experienced painter to paint 2 sections of fence Looking for an experienced exterior painter (who has their own supplies) to paint a section of colour bond fence. Measures 520 cm L x 150 cm H. Fence is clean but may need a light sand and additional prep prior. That part (clean / prep) would also be included in the job’s scope. Attention to detail and working with care essential. Experience is a must and - photos, references of work exterior painting you’ve completed prior. Fence is currently a cream colour. I’ve already purchased the Colourbond paint (in Monument) and the separate tinted primer needed to cover that sized area. It’s a very dark charcoal. There is one shrub mid fence (see photos) that would delicately need to be painted behind, and of course paint reaching as far down along fence line as possible. I would like that carried out in such a way that it’s a clean line across the bottom / tape used along grass line area too. It will need to be primed and then 1-2 coats applied - will evaluate after the first coat is dried. A second coat may not be necessary. Not looking to spend more than $250. Can be done anytime where there’s no rain forecast for that day and preferably following 2 days. Scrope: Prep - clean / light sand / tape Apply one coat of primer Apply 1-2 coats Clean up - Due date: Flexible
Baldeep arrived on time. Very polite, methodical and thorough. He left no mess whatsoever when cleaning off brushes, and handled my favourite shrub with great care when painting the fence behind it. Highly recommend him for painting. Did a great job
