Mary H was concerned about security. The lock on her back door was hard to operate, and she was never sure it was engaged. I replaced the old hardware with a new dead bolt and now she feels secure.
John and Mary J wanted to be able to watch TV in bed. A family Member had bought them a new TV and the wall mounting hardware. I was able to locate a stud in the wall that could support the weight and install the TV. Now, using their remote, they can enjoy watching their shows in comfort.
Mary K wanted to replace the overhead light in her bedroom with a ceiling fan. Together, we went to Lowes and picked out a fan. Standing on her bed, I removed the light and replaced it with the fan. Now, she can have air circulation on hot nights.
Mary L could not get the electrical outlets to work in her kitchen. The problem was easily fixed by resetting the ground fault detector on the master outlet. Now, she knows how to do it if it happens again.
Mary M had water on her bathroom floor. The pipe connecting the toilet tank was loose. A simple turn of a wrench fixed the problem. Now, she has a dry floor.
Mary O had a beautiful, real Christmas tree, but it needed to be removed without spilling the water still in the stand all over the carpet. I was able to carry the tree upright, with the stand still attached, out of the house with no spillage. Now, she can restore her living room to pre-Christmas condition.
Mary P had a screened in back porch, but she was afraid to use it because she had seen a small snake inside the screened area. We inspected the porch and found a crack where we thought the snake had gotten in. I attached a board to block the opening. A week later, she reported seeing the snake again. I returned and found another small crack, which I blocked. Now, there is no more snake.
Mary Q liked to leave her house for several months in the summer to visit her daughter. She arranged for a yard service to take care of the outside, but she needed someone she trusted to go inside to check on things. I went by on a regular basis, checked the A/C, watered the plants in the window boxes, and made sure no water or pests had gotten in. I sent her reports on email to let her know all was well. Now, she could enjoy her visit without worrying about her house.
Mary R had a granddaughter with a pet turtle. The turtle kept growing, and the girl could no longer care for it. Mary had a large aquarium and agreed to take the turtle. The turtle is now as big as a dinner plate, and makes quite a mess in the aquarium. Mary would like to get rid of her pet, but it’s not easy. In Florida, it is against the law to turn a pet turtle loose in the wild. She and the granddaughter feel for the animal and do not want to see it die. I come once a week, pump out the dirty water and add new. Now, at least for a while, she can keep the turtle.
