Handyman Services in Boston: Small Installations for Apartments

There comes a time in professional property maintenance for apartment complexes both large and small, that outside services are sometimes needed to complete a project. Small installations of things like new LED lights, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, security systems or improved slider door lock mechanisms, can be very time-consuming. Even if you have a full crew of commercial property maintenance workers on-site, you might need to hire on some extra help to avoid being overwhelmed by basic work orders in addition to the installation project. Enter All Around Management, a team of highly trained and experienced technicians who provide quality Greater Boston commercial maintenance services.

Fire & Safety Installations
One of the most common small installations that are frequently performed by handyman property maintenance services is for fire and safety equipment. Working smoke detectors, fire alarms, and carbon monoxide detectors are required for all rental properties. State Fire Code for Massachusetts states that working smoke alarms that were installed before December 1, 2016, that meet the basic requirements can be used until they are ten years old or exceed the manufacturer’s warranty. What that means is that in 2017 a lot of commercial properties for multi-family dwellings and single-family home rental properties are receiving new smoke alarms and detectors.

It pays to work with an experienced commercial property maintenance company that can provide you with this type of service. Greater Boston commercial maintenance services can be very beneficial in this area, particularly for busy property owners, managers, and landlords that just don’t have the time or manpower to install them all themselves. Before purchasing new equipment, make sure to check with local regulations to determine what you are required to have installed in a rental property. One of the biggest requirement changes was that the new battery-powered alarms must have a 10-year sealed, non-replaceable, non-rechargeable battery. The entire alarm must be replaced at the end of the ten year period.

Common Handyman Maintenance Issues
In addition to fire and safety installations, other small tasks, repairs and installations can be completed by professional property maintenance services from a local handyman. Clogged toilets, door or lock issues, water heater problems, electrical issues, minor repairs to walls, painting and paint touch-ups, appliance repair, and replacement, as well as exterior repairs and installations. Upon discovering the state of a malfunctioning garbage disposal in one unit of a 50-unit complex, you may decide to upgrade all of the garbage disposals in the property at once for both occupied and vacant apartments. Hiring a handyman from a Greater Boston commercial maintenance service can prevent your in-house maintenance crew from getting behind on work orders and get the job done in a timely manner.

Some jobs may be more than a basic “handyman” can handle, however when you work with All Around Management for your property maintenance services, we can take care of any repair, replacement, installation or service that you require. As a rule, most handymen will not be able to handle major plumbing or electrical work, requiring the use of outside contractors. Our team can evaluate the issue for you and let you know whether or not we are licensed to handle it for you or if you need to bring in a specialist. For major work, you always want to make sure that you have commercial property maintenance services that are licensed, trained, and insured to handle that type of work.
