Holiday Home Maintenance

Maintaining your holiday home is always difficult if you’re based a long way away, but it’s no less important than maintaining your own home.

Richard, our North Devon Maintenance Expert Can Help

Richard, our North Devon Maintenance Expert Can Help.

Maintaining your holiday home is always difficult if you’re based a long way away, but it’s no less important than maintaining your own home. If you’re letting it out, then holiday makers will expect a certain standard to justify their fees. If you’re keeping it for your own use, then you don’t want property issues to mar a perfect getaway.

Richard, our North Devon maintenance expert, is here to help with all your holiday property maintenance needs. Our standard services include contact on arrival or for deliveries, an emergency contact number for guests, and on-site management of maintenance tasks. Richard handles electrical work and PAT testing of appliances, and provides comprehensive gardening services to ensure the outside reflects the inside.

We ensure compliance with fire safety regulations, risk assessments, PAT testing, and gas safety. All fixtures and fittings are kept safe, and safety equipment like fire extinguishers, fire blankets, safety signs, first aid kits, and notices are accessible. Additionally, detailed maintenance and inventory reports are issued. Note that plumbing and heating services are performed by specially selected, trusted contractors.
