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.
