Hiring a handyman can be a huge help and timesaver.
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) March 09, 2018
Business facilities of all sizes contain a multitude of items that can break down or need repair, installation, or refreshing. From small-scale plumbing and electric work to painting and floors, facility managers may want to call on the services of a handyman to keep their facility in top shape.
“Hiring a handyman can be a huge help and timesaver,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “For smaller projects that you need to be done safely, quickly, and with quality in mind, a MaintenX handyman (or woman) can be just the thing you need.”
For more than 35 years, MaintenX has been providing facility managers with handyman services. However, not every facility manager knows when it’s right to call a handyman. Here are some of MaintenX’s top tips for when and where you can use handyman services:
Know the Difference: It’s important to note that handymen and contractors are not the same. Contractors are licensed to complete large-scale jobs that take more special machinery and manpower than a typical handyman job. For example, projects such as a kitchen renovation or second-story addition would require multiple licenses and expertise you’d find with a contractor. However, if you have several smaller-scale projects, like door installation, painting, tile installation, and wall building, a handyman can often tackle all these projects in a few visits.
Ask Questions: A handyman may have special licensing that allows for additional, skilled labor to be completed. It’s important to ask about the qualifications of your handyman before allowing any licensed work to begin. If it’s done incorrectly, you could be on the financial hook for repairs. It’s also wise to get recommendations from past clients and check online customer reviews to ensure your handyman has a solid reputation for quality work. Be sure to ask if your handyman can meet your expectations, timeline, and budget. A good handyman will know what projects he is capable of completing.
Think Out of the (Tool)Box: While most facility managers know about the typical jobs a handyman can complete, there are a few unexpected places a handyman can help your business. For example, if you have moved to a new location and need furniture assembled, a handyman can save you time and stress by putting it together. Small tasks like changing light bulbs, replacing a broken window screen, or hanging art or mirrors around your building are simple for handymen and save you time. Any time you wish you had an extra pair of hands, consider how a handyman can accomplish the task for you.
