4 Property Maintenance Services for Senior or Elderly Citizens

property maintenance services

For many aging individuals, the ability and desire to manage your property can be impossible. After all, your golden years are a time of celebration, relaxation and travelling – the last thing you need to do is suffer through the many tasks commonly found in property maintenance. That’s why we’ve created a list of 5 property maintenance services for elderly citizens wanting to spend their time enjoying family and friends – not resting on their knees in a flowerbed.

Spring or Fall Clean Up

As many home owners know, spring and fall can bring a large amount of yard work – with leaves needing to be gathered and disposed, pants and greenery needing to be cut back and pruned, sticks and debris collected and composted, and many other tasks which require extensive physical activity.

This physical bending and manoeuvring can lead to strains and pulls in the body – especially in aging individuals who simply can’t handle the demands on the body. Consider hiring a property maintenance company to help take care of the heavy preparations – especially if you have any on-going health issues, heart issues or mobility issues.

Grass Cutting

Pushing a lawn mower (whether manual or electric) is not only time consuming, it’s physically demanding on the body too. Humidity and scorching temperatures can cause extensive health issues – exacerbating respiratory symptoms like COPD and Asthma.

An increased stress on the body can also cause internal issues like increased blood pressure, heat stroke and muscle fatigue. Hire a property maintenance company to take care of lawn and grass care and continue to maintain a beautiful property, without the extended stress on your body.

Garden Bed Planting and Maintenance

Any avid gardener will tell you the pain of planting is real; leaving your knees and back aching for days. With the constant pressure on your knees, maintaining your garden isn’t the easiest task. That’s why hiring a professional company can help you create the flowerbed you crave – without the pain and discomfort of physically planting them yourself.

If you want to maintain the flower beds, a property maintenance company can come by on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to take care of any weeding, cutting or pruning too; keeping your attention focused on the flowers, instead of on the work at hand.

Tree Removal and Arbour Care

If a tree becomes sick or diseased, it can quickly spread from tree to tree – destroying a beautiful landscape and posing a serious safety concern as it dies. Property maintenance can keep trees healthy and disease free, if contacted at the time of discovery.

A professional company can remove and dispose of dead tree branches, identify any ongoing issues with your arbours, and treat any grub or pest issues (or give assistance in finding a pest control company, if needed). This means your property will continue to remain healthy and beautiful – giving you time to enjoy the outdoor space, instead of working to maintain it the entire time.
