Water District Warns Again About Delinquent Accounts

May 21, 2013

Our offices will be closed for the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 27.

The Coachella Valley Water District has once again served a notice to its customers that “all unpaid charges for water and services greater than $5.00 and delinquent for 60 days or more as of June 30, 2013, will be transferred to the county property tax roll and become a lien upon your property, under California Water Code Section 31701.5.” As an FYI, we have noted that the utility companies are very quick to shut off services for accounts that have become delinquent.

The Water District also reminds us that water leaks can account for more than 200 gallons of water wasted per day. An average leak can add significantly to your monthly water bill. If you notice a leak, let us know, and we will schedule one of our maintenance staff to make the repair.

Recently, several wind storms created huge amounts of airborne dust that infiltrated many garages and homes. As a result, we highly recommend that HVAC filters be changed or cleaned, if they have not been serviced. Installation of (or replacing) weather stripping and door sweeps serve as an additional means to cut down on the grit and grime that can accumulate during these events.

In addition, we have a few other service suggestions for your consideration:

Touch-up/Interior Painting – If you would like to repair the nicks and dings on the walls of your home or have a fresh coat of paint applied to other areas of your house, call the office at 760-773-4081 to arrange for an estimate.

  1. Garage and Exterior Doors/Entry Gate Painting and Care – Premier Residential Services can provide an estimate to repaint, stain or oil your garage/exposed exterior doors and entry/side yard gates so that they are further protected from exposure to direct sunlight. In addition, we can lubricate the drive, tension springs and all moving parts of the lift motor(s) to improve their operation.
  2. Outdoor Furniture Maintenance – Tables, chairs and lounges suffer from prolonged exposure to the desert elements. Wood furniture can be restored with a refreshing treatment of wood oil. Metal furniture can be restored as well, by having the frames either repainted or a fresh powder coating applied to them. In addition, straps can be replaced and new cushions ordered during this process.
  3. Tile Floor & Grout Cleaning – The summer months are an excellent time to have your tile and stone floors (Travertine, marble, limestone, pavers etc.) cleaned. Cleaning is recommended every two years to maintain the look and vibrancy of the floors in your home. Our vendors will strip and deep clean the floors and grout, seal and buff to a high gloss or matte finish and fill holes and replace grout as requested. At the same time, showers, vanities and counter tops can be inspected and an estimate will be prepared for your review.
