Don’t Let Travel Interfere With Your Home Maintenance

Posted by Andrew Balfour on Oct 24, 2018 6:30:16 AM

Traveling is a lovely way to expand your mind and learn more about the world around you. But whether you travel for work or for leisure, being away from home so often does present a few challenges. One such challenge is keeping up with home maintenance while you’re away.

Simple home maintenance tasks like changing the air filter, cleaning the gutters, and checking smoke detector batteries are easily overlooked when you’re halfway across the globe or in another state. While neglecting such maintenance may seem like a small problem at first, a lack of maintenance can catch up with you overtime in the form of roof damage from clogged gutters or furnace damage from a clogged filter.

So, what is a frequent traveler to do? Surely, you cannot give up your traveling ways just so that the smoke detector battery is changed regularly. A better solution is to hire a home service company to tackle these maintenance tasks for you. Here are a few benefits associated with this option.

You can schedule your travels more flexibly.

If you leave maintenance to the professionals, you can stay away for longer periods of time without worry. Whether you’re gone for a week or for a month, you know your home will be properly maintained in your absence. It’s also easier to travel in the spring or fall — seasons when maintaining your home becomes more demanding. If you usually avoid spring travel so you can be around to clean the air conditioner, trim bushes, and check for winter-related roof damage, hiring a maintenance service makes spring travel an option. You’ll come home to find these tasks complete!

Your home is at a lower risk for damage and disasters.

When you’re lounging on the beach or sitting in a business meeting in Singapore, you do not want to receive a phone call informing you that your house has a plumbing leak, the roof is caving in, or a tree has fallen through a window. Proper home maintenance helps prevent such incidents, so you can enjoy greater peace of mind when you travel.

You don’t have to spend your at-home time performing home maintenance.

When you’re only home for a week every month, you often end up spending that week taking care of home maintenance tasks you skipped out on while you were traveling. Wouldn’t you rather be spending that time enjoying your home or having fun with family? When you hire a home maintenance service, your at-home time becomes yours once again. You can spend it as you wish rather than spending it painting, cleaning, and working your way down a to-do list.

Don’t let caring for your home go by the wayside when you’re out of town. Hassle Free Home Services is a perfect choice for frequent travelers. We’ll provide regular and seasonal maintenance for the inside and outside of your home so you can stay on the road without the stress.
