Because we have really busy schedules these days, it is only normal that some things that need to be attended to in the home like repairs, cleaning, remodelling and fixing will be ignored or at least put aside until we feel we have the time. However, as you may have noticed, the time to attend to those things never comes. In such cases, your best bet would be to get assistance. The right person to hire would be a handyman. Even though you want to get those problems fixed, it is equally important that you make the right choice in choosing a handyman service. Here are four questions that you can ask that will help you determine if they’re the right service for you.
To get the rates of your competitors, you can call them directly or you can talk to neighbors or friends who have hired a handyman recently. To get a professional’s opinion, call a property management firm or a real estate office. The property management firm (or a real estate broker) may be able to give you a truckload of info about handyman services in your area. These folks are frequently the most sought-after clients for handymen, because they provide a stream of business, not one-off jobs.
Lets start with your bathroom. It’s used day after day, with shampoo to wash your hair, shower gel, and to bath the children. This can lead to more unexpected (and sometimes disgusting) amounts of accumulation in the drain. If you look down when you are in the shower and you’re standing one or two inches of water, or release the tub water only to see it drain more slowly, you know it’s time to clean the drainage.
Never underestimate the damage that water can create. Even small leaks can eventually cause structural damage to structures and create conditions that may lead to mold growth. Leaking sewer pipes can seep water through basement floors and walls. If you notice water or dampness, and you cannot trace the source, it’s time to contact your general home repair.
Make sure to instruct all household members to be wary of the possibility of drain clogs. Ensuring that children and other family members don’t throw things down the toilet or drains that should not be there is a necessary measure to ensure clog free plumbing.
The first thing you should know is if anyone has filed a negative complaint or claims with the Consumer protection agency or taken them to court in the past. If yes, please clarify what the circumstances surrounding the incidence were. And after this, get in touch with the agency or court to confirm their story.
These are just a few things you can do to earn some extra money. Be sure to check with your local laws before venturing out with these ideas. There may be extra costs that aren’t figured into this article.
