Home maintenance

Arvida Good Friends can introduce you to reliable and skilled helpers for small home maintenance tasks inside and outside your home.

It’s important to keep your home safe and protect its value by keeping up with small maintenance and repair tasks.

To help you stay on top of home maintenance jobs around your home, Arvida Good Friends can find you a reliable local maintenance person who will get things sorted correctly and quickly. You can access this through your Help at Home or Care at Home helper, who can arrange things to get done when it suits you and make sure you have all the bits and pieces you will need.

The tasks your handyman can do for you range from little inside jobs to messier outdoor jobs. If it isn’t a trade-specific task, like one that requires a plumber or electrician, or something done at heights, you can expect your maintenance helper to be highly versatile. The goal is to keep your home in great order, so that you’re comfortable, safe and secure.

Here are a few of the tasks a home handyman would typically take care of:

  • Changing light bulbs 
  • Re-attaching cupboard doors or replacing handles
  • Hanging paintings and other art works
  • Installing wall mountings for a TV
  • Moving furniture around
  • Routine pest control
  • Clearing gutters (one storey homes only)
  • Small painting touch ups
  • Installing new appliances
  • Changing tap washers
  • Washing driveway and paths
  • Kit and flatpack assembly

There are some guidelines about maintenance services and you will need to supply tools and all the equipment needed. Talk to us about what you need. If we don't have someone on hand to do a specialised task, we can help you find someone reliable and be there to supervise when they come to your home.
