Home Maintenance by Sears Handyman Services
Owning a home involves a great deal of responsibility. For one thing, there’s not only the responsibility of
paying your mortgage and monthly bills, but also to keep your home well-maintained, both for you and your
family’s comfort and safety and so the home can retain its value over time. Sometimes, a home needs major
repairs and maintenance due to unforeseen events like a strong storm that causes downed tree limbs on a gutter
or a deck that undergoes significant water damage. At other times, homes simply require periodic or occasional
maintenance to ensure their continued good operation.
When you need some routine home maintenance or you want your home inspected to make sure it is in good shape,
you can count on a Sears Handyman technician. Our professional service personnel are well acquainted with the
ins and outs of home maintenance, repair, and improvement.
Along with the maintenance projects described below, Sears Handyman technicians can address the following:
- Smoke alarm replacement or maintenance.
- Install or remove window air conditioner
- Gutter and downspout cleaning
- Attic check
- Ventilation checks for blockage
- Storm window installation or removal
- Utilities check (faucets, outlets, switches, fixtures)
- Toilet inspection
- Sump pump inspection
- Power wash patios and decks
- Check for loose masonry and mortar joints
Battery Checks and Replacement
Many of your home’s crucial operating systems and devices are battery operated, including your
thermostat, smoke alarms, emergency lighting systems, remotes, and garage door openers, among
others. These batteries and systems can be in difficult areas to reach, requiring a ladder to
reach and service. For those hard-to-reach areas and complex devices that some homeowners struggle
with, you can contact a Sears Handyman professional to check and change batteries throughout your
home and garage.
Lawnmower and Equipment Servicing
Lawnmowers remain a crucial piece of equipment for lawn and home upkeep. Without them, grass and
weeds grow wild and uncontrolled, making your lawn look unkempt. While most homeowners know how
to operate a lawn mower, some have difficulty maintaining it in between growing seasons and between
Most gas lawn mowers require their oil to be changed, blades sharpened, and ports cleaned of debris
on a semi-annual basis. Without this servicing, a lawnmower can become inoperable.
For lawn mower and other equipment servicing (weed trimmers, snow blowers, leaf blowers, etc.), you
can contact a Sears Handyman to inspect and service your equipment as needed. Don’t wait for a
sudden problem to occur that could have been avoided. Instead, contact a Sears Handyman today and
ensure that your lawn equipment remains functional when you need it.
Improve Home Energy Efficiency
Your home consumes a fair amount of energy each year, much of which is attributable to heating and
cooling costs used for certain utilities. In fact, the average American home uses 10,908
kilowatthours of energy per year. While utility costs in the form of heating and cooling are always
a part of homeownership, there are several steps that can be taken to maximize your home’s energy
efficiency. These steps, when aggregated, can lead to big savings on your yearly energy costs.
