Clear Gutters and Downspouts for Summer Monsoon Weather

August 1, 2012

Last Wednesday brought our first taste of Summer Monsoon weather. More than an inch of rain fell in a short period of time. This week, hot and humid weather is predicted with temperatures in the 115° range. This weather pattern often causes late day thunderstorms, which typically bring a significant amount of rain that falls quickly. This is one of the reasons we always suggest that you have Premier Residential Services clean your roof, gutters, and downspouts to ensure that accumulated water can drain.

Our staff continues to diligently conduct inspections of clients’ homes. When we have discovered problems, we have quickly addressed these issues by initiating action with our customers’ vendors or by directly communicating possible solutions to our customers.

As we do in each of our monthly letters, we are pleased to offer several timely service suggestions for your consideration:

  1. Bedspread & Duvet Cover Cleaning – Now is an ideal time to have your bedspreads, duvet covers, mattress covers and blankets dry cleaned or laundered. Premier Residential Services can arrange for cleaning and insure that items are placed in plastic bags so that they will be ready for use when needed.
  2. Aerator Cleaning – The high mineral content of the valley’s water supply is the reason why sinks, faucets, showerheads and mister system nozzles become clogged, cutting off the water flow, as well as discoloring the hardware when the evaporating water residue dries. The maintenance department can clean the screens as well as remove the built up mineral deposits from these items, allowing the fixtures to look and act as new.
  3. Vehicle and Golf Car Batteries – Every summer we have had to replace several clients’ vehicle and golf car batteries because they were failing and no longer able to hold a charge. During our inspections, we also discovered that terminals became corroded and battery cables required replacement. We have been advised by the distributors that if a battery is 4-6 years old, the likelihood is that it will begin to fail and/or not be able to hold a charge. Premier Residential Services can replace the 6 or 8 volt batteries for you, as well as clean the terminals of built up corrosion and replace cables if needed. Any golf car that operates with a 12-volt system requires replacement from the distributor. Contact the office if you feel that your golf car requires battery replacement and we will have it ready for your return in the fall.
