This is an update to the post I wrote on September 9th about discovering Home Repair Services (handyman services).
It is unfortunate that my landlady is of no use to me in emergencies. I won't elaborate on that, but I would much rather just get it done - in a timely manner - by myself.
I called Home Repair and literally 45 minutes later, there were 3 men standing in my kitchen. Within minutes, they had determined the cause of the problem, fixed it, and had mopped my entire floor. The cost was very reasonable and I was SO HAPPY that I had called them: Professional, friendly, courteous, AND they cleaned! They had the parts with them and it was all done so quickly.
I highly recommend these guys. They are going to come back and do some other little things for me later. I am very impressed; and as we all know in this market, that is not always an easy accomplishment.
