24 Feb Call2Fix, The Easy Way to Fix Your Building Repairs and Home Service Needs from your Phone
Have you ever looked at that spot or appliance in your home or office and wished you could fix it right away but there’s just no time?
A study shows that many Nigerians ignore making repairs that are needed in their buildings because of a lack of maintenance culture. [SO1] You have probably seen homes and offices that look like they have seen better days, right. Most times, the reason people embrace a lack of maintenance culture is the high cost of securing the right artisan as well as the complicated process that follows.
Truthfully, between the demands of work, family and every other thing that competes for time, things like making repairs in the building, ensuring that only trusted hands are hired for repairs and other building projects sometimes demand more time, effort and money than we can give. All this just affect how we view or prioritise maintenance, which is now described as poor maintenance culture.
After three years in Lagos, Sophie* finally found the time to call a plumber to fix a pipe that had been leaking in her apartment. She was literally fetching water into a basket due to this defective pipeline and her electricity bill is better imagined than experienced.
Before fixing the pipe, she did not even know that it was the reason she always needed the air conditioner on for longer than necessary. The constant leakage meant that the humidity level of the house was always high and made her space hotter than normal.
Like Sophie, a lot of people either have a hard time fixing things around the buildings, getting quality materials or just finding the right artisan or handyman who will be professional and fix the issues for good. The consequent lackadaisical attitude to the repairs is usually costly both emotionally and financially.
