Moving stinks. You’ve done it 100 times and you deserve a break. Let pro movers pack and stack, haul and heft your prized possessions across town. All you have to do is tell them where to put things. Maybe enjoy some bonbons while you’re at it.
You’re moving out and you want that deposit. You could rent a steamer from the grocery store, but you’d have to borrow a truck and the machine’s heavy and it’s raining outside. Or you could just have the carpet professionally cleaned and that baby will look like it’s brand new. Done.
If it’s been in a pile for over a year, you can safely call it junk. Whatever emotional block you’ve developed against dealing with this junk is a moot point. Just call in a professional de-junker so you don’t have face the boxes of moldy who-knows-what that have been languishing in the garage since 2012.
The quickest route to a totally new look is a fresh coat of paint. Go bold and unexpected, go subtle and soft, or go classically chic—whichever way you go, make it go much quicker by having interior painters handle the job for you.
Lawn Mowing and Trimming
Nothing looks better than a crisp cut lawn. And let’s be honest, there might be a slight bit of heaven in that perfect edge between grass and walkway. Set up a mowing service to keep the jungle tame on the regular.
Once the sole domain of the super fancy, house cleaning services are now accessible to pretty much everyone. Local, affordable, trustworthy folks will come clean up after your sweet, messy self whenever you need. Arrange bi-monthly cleanings (and preclude 85% of your domestic strife) or knock it out of the park with one massive spring cleaning power session.
Leaky faucet, broken cupboard, janky garage door, busted garbage disposal—holler at a handyperson and have that list handled in a heartbeat. Seriously, it’s been months, it’s okay to call for help.
Pest Control Services
Roaches and termites, and rats, oh my! Ain’t nobody who gets a kick out of dealing with creepy critters unless it’s their job. When your bathroom has unwanted visitors scurrying around all night, it’s time to end the party. Call in a pest control specialist, the sooner the better. Besides being pretty gross, the little stinkers can carry disease. Best to have it handled.
Keep strangers out, kids in, and dogs in their proper place. Having a fence installed will raise resale value and is a stellar safety strategy whether you’re in the city or nestled in the suburbs.
You have every good reason to have trees planted on your property. You’ll save on air conditioning and heating costs due to the shade and weather protection it provides. You’ll improve air quality. You’ll increase the value of your home if the trees are well-maintained. And—obviously—they look glorious. Glad that’s settled.
Roof Installation or Replacement
Maybe having a new roof installed isn’t as glamorous as, say, going to Cabo. However, the fact remains that repairing or replacing your roof will keep you warm and dry and increase the value of your home—not to mention eliminating future damage due to leaks—thereby actually bringing you much greater day-to-day joy than any one trip to the beach. Thumbtack pros will have it over and done with before you know it.
Pressure washing is to your house as an exfoliating spa treatment is to your body. Completely rejuvenating and way underrated. Have your roof, exterior paint, or sidewalk and drive professionally pressure washed to ring in the spring. Especially useful prior to putting your home on the market.
Furniture Moving and Heavy Lifting
Move heavy stuff without lifting a finger. That antique walnut bed with the marble posts your grandmother bequeathed you? Yea. It’s heavy. Professional movers of heavy stuff have got the situation under control. They’ll move the goods from room to room, house to house, or town to town. You’ve got options, and a pain-free back.
Bare patch of dirt and no clue what to do? A semblance of a plan and desperately desiring guidance? A fully landscaped lawn that you loathe in need of a complete overhaul? Whatever you’re after, professional landscapers can design, sculpt, plant, and create the garden of your dreams.
From the DIY decorator to the desperate homeowner, interior design services benefit everyone. Call in a designer for a one-hour consultation if all you need is fine-tuning, enlist a room makeover for a fresh start, or invest in a full home or business design. Life’s too short for bad taste.
