Top General Maintenance related questions

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

General maintenance costs between $100-$260 for most jobs booked on Airtasker. But the price will depend on what you need to be done and how many hours it’ll take your maintenance technician.

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:

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 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.

Fix my oven and maintenance on kitchen outlets


Los Angeles, CA 90034, USA

Oct 29th 2023

I have a GE Gas Slide-In Range (model JGSP28SEN2SS) which is about 12 years old. Everything seems to work ok apart from the oven, which stopped igniting a few weeks ago. After researching online I believe the igniter needs to be replaced but I can't be sure. I would like an electrician who can verify the issue and fix with the correct part. Also, some of the power outlets in the kitchen don't seem to be functioning properly. For example, one will occasionally lose power. So I would like the electrician to check and potentially fix any issues. - Due date: Flexible

I'm very happy with my experience working with Arthur. He ordered the part I needed to fix my oven (ignitor) and worked hard to manage the replacement. He also checked for wiring issues in my kitchen outlets and replaced 2 of them. Thus far no issues. He also provided advice on some other jobs and I'm sure I will be hiring him again for 2 of them.

Motorcycle maintenance


Columbus, OH 43212, USA

May 30th 2023

I'm seeking a qualified/experienced motorcycle mechanic to change the Throttle Position Sensor on my 2007 Yamaha FJR1300. The VIN of the bike is: JYARP16E87A000842 The Yamaha OEM part number is: 3P6-85885-00 This part number supersedes the old TPS sensor which fixed the known problems. The TPS on select Yamaha bikes is known to cause some idle roughness and hesitancy off the low-end in first gear. This bike year (2007) was not in the recall list but the defective part still affected years after 2006. If you're reading this you're likely to know all about the TPS issues on certain Yamaha vehicles. The bike is garage kept and in outstanding, ridable condition. I just want to replace this before the riding season is in full swing. I'm paying $75 per hour onsite (Grandview Heights) for this job and expect a qualified person to take two-three hours to complete the task. Please let me know if you are interested, if you are aware of Yamaha's TPS issues, and your general motorcycle mechanic experience. Thank you. - Due date: Flexible
