Top General Maintenance related questions

What does general maintenance mean?

General maintenance refers to the broad range of tasks that are involved in maintaining, cleaning, and repairing a space. Usually, these tasks won’t require a high level of skills, but they will require a general knowledge of how things work and what tools are best for the job.

What are the duties and responsibilities of a maintenance worker?

Maintenance workers’ duties usually involve taking care of a set area. They’re responsible for cleaning and minor repairs, ensuring the space is well maintained.

What types of projects do general maintenance technicians work on?

Common projects for general maintenance workers are fixing wall/ceiling damage around a home or business, replacing tiles, replacing tap washers, cleaning and replacing filters on appliances, and removing built-up leaves and debris from roofing and gutters.

What skills do general maintenance technicians usually come with?

General maintenance requires a broad range of general skills and tools. They should be able to confidently handle a pressure washer, drill, hammer, screwdriver, paintbrush, sander, and saw.

Will my maintenance person bring their own tools and equipment?

While most maintenance technicians bring their own toolkit and general supplies, it’s best to check what equipment is needed for your job ahead of time. Consumables like paint, detergents, and nails may need to be supplied.

How much does it cost to hire a general maintenance worker?

What does a general maintenance service include?

General maintenance covers a broad range of tasks and services. You might engage your handyman to work on a specific task 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:

Home maintenance

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 maintenance technician will bring their own 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, plus changing the oil and other minor parts.
