Smoke and CO Detector Service

Simply one of the most critical, yet most overlooked, safety system in your home. Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detectors should be cleaned, inspected and tested every  6 months. Batteries should be changed at least yearly. Rest easy knowing your systems are protecting you and your family.

Clean Water Service

Water is precious. We are certainly fortunate here in the beautiful Pacific NW - simple filtration is often all that is needed to kick that nasty plastic bottle habit to the curb. Under-counter systems. Pitchers. Fridge built-ins. We can help.

Refrigerator water filters should be changed every 6 months; Brita Filters should be changed ~every 3 months. Under-counter units vary by usage patterns.

  • Tell us the filter makes)/model if you know, or we’ll help you figure it out

  • We take your vacuum outside for service
  • Clean out the catch bin/filter area
  • Replace filter and/or wash as appropriate
  • Clean the brush roller - cut off all the hair, fur, carpet yarn, etc.
  • Wipe down the exterior with a micro fiber cloth
  • Clean out your hand held vacuums, shop vacs, and don’t forget about your central vacuum system.

Dryer Exhaust System Service

Dryer Vents are seldom seen and rarely worried about, but they are a very important part of keeping a healthy and safe home. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission there are over 15,500 home fires a year caused by dirty dryer vents. Lint and debris gets backed up in the vent reducing air flow. This can decrease dryer efficiency and cause fires. While a lot of homeowners are aware of the risks associated with dirty dryer vents not everyone has the time, proper equipment, or know how to keep their dryer vent adequately cleaned.

  • Complete end to end cleaning of your dryer's exhaust system. 
  • Clean the entire length of your dryer vent, including the outlet
  • Clean your dryer from the exhaust port all the way back to the lint trap
  • We use a HEPA-filtered vacuum to preserve the air quality in your home!

Your fire department recommends at least annual cleaning of your dryer vent!

Knife and Tool Sharpening

One of the leading causes of finger cuts is dull knives. That’s right - DULL - knives, because they cause you to use more pressure than should be needed causing slips and cuts.

  • Prepare food more efficiently and more safely
  • Avoid cuts
  • Make more precise cuts, waste less food
  • Enjoy cutting, chopping, dicing, and carving more with sharp blades!

Light bulb Service

Hard to reach bulbs...too many bulbs. Need help finding odd bulbs - the clothes dryer, oven, or old fluorescent fixture? Our light bulb replacement service will have you seeing clearly.

  • You provide the bulb and we'll do the work
  • We can help track down or provide odd bulbs for a modest uplift
  • From your front porch light to your ceiling fans

*Additional fee required for ultra-higher ceilings (>12 ft)
