Guide: Hiring Household Help in Orlando

As you settle in to a new home, getting into a routine can be the best way to make sure all the regular maintenance and upkeep of the home is attended to on time. One of the best ways to keep on top of these tasks is to hire some help to assist with the tasks you find difficult or time consuming, both on the inside and outside of the house. 

Before You Hire Help 

Before allowing any contractor or company to work in or near your home, remember to ask to see their business information, including license, insurance and references from past clients. If you are hiring the contractor directly, be sure to read any contract you sign with them and ask how much notice you need to give in order to terminate it. 

Some of the household help you may need to hire to keep your Central Florida home in good condition might include: 

Pest Control 

If you’ve newly moved to Florida from another state, you might be surprised to find out that regular pest control to the exterior and interior of the home is a necessity to keep small pests like roaches and larger animals like rodents and vermin at bay. Professional pest control wont just keep these visitors out of the house, it will also stop them from setting up nests close to the home. 

Pool Maintenance 

Having a pool can be great fun, but it can also be time consuming for you as the homeowner. Not only do you have to spend time cleaning the pool’s surface and deck, you’ll also find yourself playing the host to friends, family and neighbors more often. Keeping the pool water in balance can be tricky in the summer months, when heavy rains can flood into the pool and throw the chemistry off. Having a pool service to skim any debris, test the pool water and check the filters regularly allows you to spend your leisure time enjoying the pool instead of taking care of it. 

Air Conditioning 

Thanks to the important part that air conditioning plays in living in Florida, it’s vital to keep the air conditioning unit in good condition. Getting a regular maintenance check quarterly will help you stay abreast of any issues that may require an expensive repair down the line. During this check, the technician will examine all the important components inside the AC unit, change the air filter, and make sure there are no operational issues with the unit.  Since the AC unit is one of the most expensive appliances in the home, it’s well worth the small expense of having an expert check it regularly.
