In a home where both adults work long hours, there's not always a lot of time for home maintenance. You probably want to arrive home to a comfortable, well-maintained space, but you simply don't have time for tasks like changing the HVAC filter, clearing drains, and inspecting your roof.
You work hard, so you deserve to live in a well-maintained home — even if you don't have time to keep it that way yourself. So, what's the solution? A quarterly home maintenance service, of course!
The Components of a Quarterly Home Maintenance Plan
Quarterly home maintenance services basically include all of the regular, basic maintenance that the average home needs, spaced out across four appointments — one each season.
Our home maintenance technicians maintain both the interior and exterior of your home. They inspect and maintain windows and doors, your roof, and any trees near your home. They also maintain your HVAC system and plumbing, your major appliances, and your safety equipment, including the smoke detectors, CO alarms, and fire extinguishers.
Each time your technician visits, they will perform a list of general maintenance tasks, such as changing the HVAC filters, clearing the drains and checking the toilets. Then they tackle additional season-specific maintenance tasks. For example, in the fall they'll install storm windows and turn off your exterior hose bibs. In the summer, they'll clear dryer vents and service garage doors.
The Benefits of Quarterly Home Maintenance Plan
When you and your partner are both really busy with work, there are a few benefits to letting someone else handle your home maintenance on a quarterly basis.
Your weekends are yours again.
Maybe you work some weekends, but when you do have a weekend off from work, you don't want to spend it replacing weatherstripping or cleaning your drains. With a home maintenance plan, your weekends will be yours again to spend as you wish.
Your home will be safer.
When you're exhausted and you have to work the next day, the last thing you want is to wake up at 3:00 am to a beeping carbon monoxide alarm or smoke detector. With quarterly home maintenance services, your home will stay in better shape, so there will be a lower risk of CO leaks, fires, and other mishaps.
You can plan the appointments around your schedule.
When you're always at work, scheduling appointments with professionals can be tough. With a quarterly home maintenance plan, you only have to work with one company to maintain everything from your roof to your drains. You only have to schedule four appointments per year. This is also easier on your budget; you can save a small amount each month to pay for the quarterly maintenance.
Most people go through a stage of life when they're working a lot. If you're in that stage of life right now, a quarterly home maintenance plan, though Hassle Free Home Services, can help simplify your schedule and give you back some freedom.
