All-Inclusive Home Maintenance for Busy Families

This post is sponsored by EncompassOne Home Solutions. They provide homeowners with a single point of contact providing service covering everything from scheduled maintenance visits, small handyman repairs to full scale renovations. 

If you’re like me, you have a honey-do list a mile long, that well… never gets done. In his defense, my husband coaches both of my boys’ baseball teams, travels for work and we rarely have downtime on weekends, thanks to our three kids and their busy schedules. We love our home, but sometimes is hard to keep up with the never-ending tasks that require our attention and time to keep it in shape.

We recently scheduled a maintenance service visit with Pete from EncompassOne Home Solutions to take care of some of the things we never get to. EncompassOne Home Solutions is an all-inclusive subscription-based service that takes care of your home and prevents future problems. You are assigned a Home Service Manager that is your one point of contact for all your homes’ needs. The plan comes with two maintenance visits per year, free consultations and estimates on any home repair, access to a network of service providers and general contractors where you can save 10-20 percent on repairs and improvements and a free advice homeowners help line.

Maintenance Visits

With your subscription plan, a Home Service Manager will visit twice per year. Pete took care of so many things around the house that had been on my to-do list since we moved in. He also brought to my attention some things that needed repair and what to do about them.

Appliances

Pete cleaned and inspected our garbage disposal and found that it was loose and about to fall off. He tightened it for us as part of the service visit. He also cleaned the coils and compressor of our refrigerator and inspected the water line connection to prevent future leaks. Pete told me about a recent customer whose water line was very close to breaking and would have flooded their kitchen. EncompassOne replaced the line and avoided a very costly situation.

Plumbing

He cleaned all shower, tub and sink drains and unclogged several drains for us. He tightened toilet seats and inspected all plumbing for leaks and corrosion, tightened all of our outlets and robe hooks and inspected the GFCI outlets. He also cleaned the dusty bathroom ventilation fans that I can never reach!

Smoke Detectors

Did you know smoke detectors expire after 10 years? I only knew about changing batteries. Our home is 20 years old with the original smoke detectors, so Pete gave me a quote to have all of the smoke detectors replaced in the home so we can be sure that we’re protected in case of fire.

Windows

Pete inspected our windows and found that the seals are starting to fail. He explained that the windows will eventually rot and would need replacement, which is a huge expense. Instead, he recommended we seal the windows and followed up with a quote.

EncompassOne Home Solutions is a one-stop shop for your home.
