A Day in the Life of a Maintenance Technician
Photos by me
We see our maintenance technicians around in their awesome khaki shorts everyday. We smile and wave, tell them that service request we forgot to put in. But did you ever wonder what a full day looks like for them? I took some time to found out what a normal day looks like for our maintenance team at Camden Ballantyne.
It was a "tall" order with 15 work orders pending, 2 apartment homes to get ready for our new residents, and grounds to clean. But I was very excited to start my day.
We started off with walking the property to make sure it was nice and clean. It was not an easy task to walk 39 acres of land, clean the fountain and throw out trash on a 90 degree North Carolina day. But our guys do it with a smile.
Then it was off to races with a few work orders. Rafael as always was happy to have an extra hand to go and get the tools needed off his cart…from the THIRD FLOOR!
Finally, we worked on getting an apartment ready for the next resident. This including cleaning the A/C system and return vents, caulking the tubs, touching up paint on some minor sheetrock repairs, and checking all the appliances and fixtures. PHEW!
After taking the time to truly experience what these guys face every day, I find myself with a new kind of respect and appreciation for them. Every day, rain or shine, hot or cold, our maintenance team works their hardest to provide all of our residents with comfort, ease and of course the customer service that is expected when living with Camden.
