How Does a Home Maintenance Services Program Work?
More and more, homeowners are turning to home maintenance service programs to ensure their homes are well cared for and properly maintained. Perhaps you have seen these programs advertised or have had friends utilize them, but you’ve been hesitant to enroll yourself because you’re not sure how such a program works. Well, here’s a closer look at what a home maintenance services program involves and the benefits of such a service.
Monthly Subscription and Billing
Signing up for a monthly home maintenance service is a bit like signing up for a lawn care service or a cleaning service, but it offers so much more in one package. You are billed once a month, and each month, a technician visits your home to perform any maintenance tasks that need tackling. These services range from basic plumbing maintenance, to refrigerator maintenance, to gutter cleaning.
Some services are performed each and every time the technician visits your home. Such services include:
- Lubricating sliding door tracks
- Adding freshener to refrigerators
- Cleaning the garbage disposal
- Inspecting and clearing drains
- Inspecting and emptying whole-house vacuum cleaners
- Testing smoke and CO alarms
Your technician will also look over items like hose bibs, your exterior caulking, sink caulking, and grout. If repairs are needed, they can perform them in a timely manner to keep your home in good shape.
Clearly, not all home maintenance tasks need to be performed each and every month. So during your monthly appointment, your technician will also complete some seasonal tasks.
In the fall, for example, they will inspect and replace any weatherstripping around doors and windows. In the winter, they can maintain and service fireplaces and clean the HVAC return vents. Spring calls for a roof inspection and tree trimming, and summer is the season for servicing garage doors and washer hoses. These are just examples; there are many other seasonal tasks that your technician can and will perform based on individual needs.
In the past, you would call a plumbing company to take care of your drains, a window company to re-caulk your windows, a roofing company to inspect your roof, and so forth. This is a lot to keep up with — a lot of phone calls to make and bills to pay!
With a home maintenance services program, you only have to deal with one company. Monthly and seasonal services are all included in one monthly fee, and if you need any additional add-on services — like general house cleaning or chimney cleaning — those services will also be wrapped up in your one monthly bill. There are fewer phone calls to make and just one reliable company to deal with.
When you sign up for a home maintenance services program, you can be sure your home is taken care of, even when you are busy with work or away on vacation. Contact Hassle Free Home Services to learn more about our monthly and seasonal services or to request a quote.
