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.

I want to drive this from Tasmania to Queensland, however it needs some love before that will happen, and to pass roadworthy. It only needs globes, and maybe a headlight adjustment to pass, according to previous inspection. Failed on the aforementioned, and exhaust (replaced), no horn (replaced OEM steering wheel), frayed seatbelt (replaced), hole in drivers carpet, (floor mats) 1987/88 NE/NF Mitsubishi pajero 2.6l petrol. Carby has not been tuned, it is a Webber conversion, on a 4g54 motor, and the radiator is not functioning correctly. Blown rocker or head gasket, lots of oil build up on passenger side under the intake.. it appears to be from the block, but hard to tell.. suspect welch plug. Car starts, but clutch is pretty much gone. No temperature reading. Various globes are blown. EVAP Lines to charcoal canister are a mess, with lines blocked off, and looped into themselves, etc.. Fuse blown in UHF. Engine has low compression on at least one cylinder. What I would like is; Complete engine bay degrease, to diagnose oil leak. Carby tuned, and vacuum lines fitted correctly. Rocker/head gasket replacement, if need. Fuel filter Universal fan shroud (maybe) Battery clamp Head lights, tail lights, repeaters, license plate lights, inspected and replaced as needed. New/Working Radiator. Extractors inspected for damage. Fix temperature gauge Issue road worth. Lastly, the vehicle is set up for air conditioning, but has no compressor, I would consider this if good used compressor or affordable new one is available
