Why hire professional Caretaker Services?

Caretakers are responsible for the care and upkeep of buildings and their grounds, for making sure the building is in proper working order, for who comes on to the site and the security of the building.  In other words they are responsible for the administration, repairs, cleaning and security of a building.

Sometimes a resident of a building is hired as the caretaker.  Quite often this set-up is not successful as the resident caretaker does not have the training, qualifications or the support of a supervisor and fully trained team.

Hiring the services of professional caretaker services will ensure that the property is seen in the best light and provide the strata council and property manager with the following advantages:

  • Service is provided by carefully screened, trained and fully insured professional caretakers
  • Caretaker is supported by regular on-site visits by supervisors
  • Replacement caretaker is organized in case of vacation or sickness to guarantee continuous service
  • Potential cost savings to the strata as rent-free or reduced-rent rental unit becomes available to rent at fair market value
  • Elimination of possible in-house politices when resident caretaker is in charge
  • Swimming pool and spa maintenance by certified professional
  • Regular professional emergency generator power testing
  • Experience in dealing with trades for maximum efficiency
  • Background in small repairs
  • Experience in providing written reports to property managers and strata councils
