Home Services Singapore
Fixing a leaky pipe, adding power points, installing furniture or painting a wall? When it comes to minor, home improvement works - a home services provider is who you should call! Think electricians, plumbers, painters, cleaners and even (yes) home organisers.
In general, most home services in Singapore cover a wide range of house-related tasks, such as repair works, maintenance jobs, installation works, electrical, plumbing and painting works for interior and exterior spaces. While these tasks are usually small-scale, some home servicing jobs - especially those that require structural alterations like plumbing, electrical wiring and air-con servicing - will require a trained hand that’s aware of building regulations or guidelines.
For such cases, the professional that you’re engaging should be licensed by the relevant government authorities. If it’s electrical works - check that the servicing firm is accredited by the BCA (Building and Construction Authority), IDA (Infocomm and Development Authority) or EMA (Energy Market Authority). Likewise, if you’re looking to do any plumbing or gas fitting works, make sure the company you’re engaging is BCA-trained and PUB (Public Utility Board)-licensed.
Other things to note? While it’s tempting to engage a handyman or home servicing company through word-of-mouth, it always pays to read reviews online to have a clearer, objective picture.
