When do I need a Handyman?
Every house needs frequent repairs and maintenance projects to keep it safe and in good shape. Most of them are minor jobs that do not need the services of a contractor.
Although you may perform the tasks yourself, what do you do if you lack the time or skills to tackle the repairs?
If you have a broken drawer, a faulty light or need a hand to assist your painting job, Helpling’s Handyman Service is here to help.
Our Handyman carries out a comprehensive list of handyman jobs such as carpentry work, drywall repair, faucet repair, light installation, ceiling fan installation, concrete repair, plumbing services and stucco repairs. They can also assist with painting and renovation of your existing paint. Whenever required, they can make repairs on the brickwork and plaster underneath the paint to make sure the job is done right.
With the help of our Handyman, we can easily spot things that require fixing or they are likely to get worse over time. By ensuring the necessary maintenance of your property, we can prevent them from turning into big, costly problems later on.
Not only can this help you save money in the long run, it also helps your home stay updated.
If your project involves simple home repairs or maintenance tasks, a Handyman is the way to go. Helpling's Handyman will let you gain access to the skills of an industry expert.
What are some signs that my home requires maintenance?
1. Buzzing power outlets
Power outlets and switches should always operate silently. If a power outlet is making buzzing or crackling noises, do not use the power outlet and consult a licensed electrician immediately.
While not all electrical appliances purchased are from reputable, established brands, using counterfeit electronics and appliances with no safety mark is a cause for concern. Not only is it dangerous, it may potentially damage your home’s electrical systems too.
2. Wrong water pressure
If you’re suddenly experiencing low water pressure from a particular faucet, or hearing bubbling noises from the toilet bowl in your house, it could be a sign of clogged pipes.
First thing: check with your neighbours on whether they are facing the same problem. If they are, this is likely an issue that is not within your control and will need to be brought up to HDB or PUB.
If the problem persists only in your home, check your pipes and water supply valve. Old pipes may have gotten clogged by deposits amongst other issues. If you are unable to identify or fix the issue, consider engaging in emergency plumbing services for help.
Even if these issues do not affect your day-to-day living, it is always better to fix them before they worsen. Don’t wait till the day you’re left unable to turn on the lights or flush the toilet.
3. Musty smell
It is time to call for an electrician when you smell the odd odor more than once in your home. It would help if you unplugged any nearby appliances from around the specific switchboard. A fault in the wirings can result in a significant fire at home. Ensure that you shut the main power socket to prevent any damage to other electrical appliances until the professionals come and take control of the situation.
4. Faulty windows and doors
The doorways and windows in your home open and shut quickly without getting stuck. But, now you notice that the window is getting stuck, and the door is not correctly closing. Such issues may point toward an issue in the basic foundation. In addition, the door sash may have some problems. It is time to call experts for maintenance services and get it right before the problem grows bigger.
What is the difference between hiring a handyman and a regular plumber/technician?
From your home’s plumbing needs to other maintenance requirements, handyman services have technicians skilled in all kinds of professional trades to get things done flawlessly. They have specialists in one or more of the many tasks such as a carpenter, a plumber or an electrician. Handymen come in numerous shapes and sizes to fit your specific needs. So, you can always use the most reputable company in your area offering such services to tackle all kinds of repair issues in your home.
There are times where your to-do list has become longer than expected. Not only do you need fixing for your toilet bowl, but also someone to repair your door. This is where calling a handyman would be of great help. An adept team of handymen will complete all the little fix-ups required in your home in the least possible time.

With the appropriate tools, they can easily fix your home, ensuring safety and convenience while delivering satisfactory results.
Finally, the Handyman you hire should be flexible, providing service at your convenience. Whether your property needs immediate repairs or you wish to book an appointment, a Handyman should allow you to plan around your availability.
This ensures a fuss-free experience while providing positive outcomes for your home.
