While many homeowners perform some level of home upkeep, the full to-do list of maintenance tasks is surprisingly long and costly. We take care of everything that must be done over the course of a year, to ensure your home is kept in pristine condition – from well-known items like changing air filters to the unexpected… Did you know that ceiling fan direction should be changed seasonally to help heat or cool your home?
With HomeKeep, you’ll save time and money, and gain peace of mind that your home is well-cared for
HomeKeep combines technology and services. After you pick the right package for your home type, you simply download our mobile application (iOS or Android), set up your first appointment to have your home products cataloged, and receive quarterly maintenance appointments thereafter.
During the initial home cataloging appointment, we perform a walk-through of your home collecting the information needed to register your major home components with the manufacturers and to customize the ideal annual home maintenance package. We then organize all your home product details in the app for you to refer to at any time.
Once your home has been cataloged and your package is set up, we will notify you (by email and in-app) when it’s time to service a part of your home. You then select an appointment at a time that works for you and provide any important notes (access information, etc.) right in the HomeKeep app. On the day of your appointment, the maintenance specialist will notify you when they are on the way.
Each appointment includes dozens of important home maintenance tasks, as well as a thorough inspection for preventative care. After each appointment is complete, you will receive a full report of all completed work and be notified of any items that need to be addressed sooner than your next appointment. This information is stored in the app providing easy-to-access home maintenance records.
Need help at any time? Along with general support, you will be assigned a personal human concierge to assist with any follow-up tasks, problems, or questions you may have.

Our "homekeepers" are experts in home upkeep. They typically come from a background in home inspection and/or are well-trained handymen. Each specialist goes through rigorous training, covering every area of the home upkeep process and general maintenance inspection, and maintains in-depth product knowledge (consistent with manufacturer recommendations).
Additionally, each homekeep™ maintenance specialist must maintain the cultural requirements of the business. They must be knowledgeable, courteous, helpful, and have the same level of passion for taking care of homes as we do.
