August was an extremely hot and humid month. There were a number of days that utility companies imposed conservation measures and are advising customers to expect much higher than normal electric utility bills. There have also been several “monsoon” rain storms that affected various Coachella Valley communities.
As the beginning of the Season approaches, we have a Home Opening Services form available here on our website for the use of clients whose homes have not been occupied throughout the summer. You can always find a link to this form in the drop-down menu from the “Services” item in the navigation bar.
To ensure timely scheduling of requested services, it is extremely important that your completed form be submitted no later than three weeks prior to your arrival date.
Here are several home opening suggestions for your consideration. Please call our office at 760-773-4081 for an estimate or to arrange for service (here are other ways to contact us).
- Drapery and Blind Cleaning – To have your window treatments cleaned, Premier Residential Services can arrange “on-site” service. Our vendor service vehicle contains all of the necessary equipment to clean your drapes, valances, cornice boxes and all types of blinds, including Hunter Douglas products. The cleaning system is safe for all types of fabrics, including silks and blackout lined drapes. All drapes are taken down and dry cleaned. They are then professionally re-hung, with any minor repairs completed prior to re-hanging on the same day.
- Carpet & Upholstered Furniture Cleaning – Let us know if you would like to have either service scheduled or an estimate for cleaning, prior to your arrival. The warm weather provides for faster and more thorough drying.
- Artificial Plant & Tree Cleaning – Premier Residential Services can arrange to have your artificial decorative plants and trees cleaned so that they are, once again, looking fresh and vibrant. You will notice the difference.
- Vehicle/ Golf Cart Service – If you have a vehicle or golf cart at your desert residence, let us know what maintenance services you would like us to perform and we will arrange to have your instructions carried out.
- Pool/Spa/Fountain Cleaning – Now is an ideal time to schedule cleaning (acid wash/tile cleaning) service for your pool, spa or fountain to remove built up mineral/salt deposits prior to your return.
