Q. When is a handyman generally required to be called in?
Handymen are required for all types of odd jobs in the house, but mostly for work that requires skilled drilling into walls and ceilings. This could be to hang, mount or install appliances and fixtures. In addition, handymen also provide IKEA or other modular furniture assembly which is needed both for new purchase as well as after a move.
Q. Why do handymen charge by the hour?
Handyman services do not usually require an inspection and can be done on the spot, like mounting a TV or curtain and blinds installation. It is therefore not practical to carry out an inspection and charge a call-out. Also, it works out to be more transparent and fair to both parties to follow a per hour charge.
Q. What should I keep in mind while hiring a handyman?
While looking to hire a handyman in Dubai or UAE, it is important to consider the following:
1. The handyman should have a visa from a company with the correct trade license, with specific handyman related categories and approved by the Economic Development Department.
2. All necessary insurances should be in place – third party liability, contractor’s liability, medical insurance and workers’ compensation.
3. Since the quality of the service you get depends on the individual’s qualification, experience, attitude, and communication skills, it is important to have the handyman, and not the company, checked out.
The handyman should be prompt and respond to customer queries, either directly or through the company.
Failure to comply with local regulations, as outlined above, can lead to hefty fines for customers.
Q. How should I get the best out of my handyman service?
To be able to best utilize your handyman while he is on-site, here are some important preparatory things you could do:
1. Make a list of things that need to be done by the handyman.
2. Ensure that you inform the handyman if there is a special requirement, like a tall ladder.
3. Clear the space around the work area of any decorative items and furniture.
4. Agree with your family on the position or location of the fixtures.
5. Ensure that all parts and items are available at the time of the service.
Q. What common accidents are possible due to low-quality handyman services?
While hanging fixtures, it is possible to drill through a wire containment or a water pipe within the wall. Sometimes, an inexperienced handyman may drill too large a hole which will lead to the fixture not hanging firmly on to the wall. Also, the strength of the screw might not be appropriate for the weight of the wall fixture. This will result in the fixture getting loose over time and finally disengaging from the wall. An unequal level of the wall fixture may cause balance issues. Another common problem is the lack of proper post-service clean-up which leads to a nail or some other material causing hurt to you or damaging the property.
