Even Palm Desert Is Not Immune From Cold Weather

December 1, 2010

Brrrr! We are not immune from having a taste of cold weather. The recent cold mornings and chilly days remind us that we should not take for granted the generally pleasant weather during the winter season. Do not forget the rainy season is upon us, so if you have not had your roof, downspouts and gutters cleaned of accumulated debris, this preventive measure can save you from future headaches caused by rainwater-related problems.

As a reminder, the Premier Residential Service’s offices will be closed on Friday, December 24, 2010 and Friday, December 31, 2010.

If your home is ten years old or older, it might be wise to replace the wax rings and caulk around the base of your toilets, as the desert climate tends to make them dry and brittle and is the source of a potential leak. In addition, if there are cracks or water stains in your drywall or ceiling, these blemishes can be repaired and fresh paint can be applied. We can also remove any insects from inside light covers or fixtures while cleaning them at the same time.

We are pleased to offer the following service suggestions for your consideration this month:

  1. Doorbell Button Replacement – Our team has noticed that a number of clients have cracked or inoperable entry doorbell buttons. These buttons can be replaced easily. Please contact the office to schedule the service.
  2. Grout Replacement – If the showers or tub areas in your home have developed cracks in the grout between the tiles, call the office to schedule repair. In addition, if any of the shower pans have developed a leak, these too can be replaced.
  3. Weather Strip Replacement – Heat or cooling loss through openings and cracks can be costly. Premier Residential Services can replace or install energy-saving weather stripping, as well as caulk around doors and windows. In addition, the weather stripping on garage doors and golf cart doors can be replaced. These small steps can not only save on energy consumption but also cut down on the dust and sand that always seems to be present.
  4. Holiday Help – If you would like help to assist in serving or cleaning up during and after a holiday gathering, Christmas dinner, or a New Year’s Party, Premier Residential Services does have members of our staff who are available to help in clients’ homes. Contact the office for details and scheduling.

The management and staff of Premier Residential Services would like to extend to you our warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and healthy New Year.
