As social distancing has much of the world’s population spending more time in their dwelling, many might wonder what projects they can check off their home to-dos during this unique time. We’ve compiled a list of outdoor home services that can be accomplished or completed with a wall or door and six feet of glorious space between you and your provider!
Keep in mind that some local services might only be taking on emergency work right now, so there might be more limited availability in your area. Help keep the professionals working on your homes safe by using digital payments as opposed to cash or check, maintain social distancing and remote communication through the duration of the project, and even paying in advance for any work that needs to be postponed. Most importantly, be in consistent communication prior to work being done to ensure a safe work environment for everyone.
As always, check CDC recommendations for the most up to date guidelines before moving forward on any project, as the COVID-19 situation remains fluid and ever-changing.
We all know that emergencies can strike our homes at any time. From a broken AC unit to issues with our circuit breakers, there are some things that simply require professional care as soon as possible. Electricians, plumbers, HVAC professionals, and more are ready to hear from you in the event you require their emergency services. Reach out to emergency providers available in your area using request a quote!
While not the most glamorous of tasks, clean gutters are an essential part of home maintenance.

Fencing experts can typically assess your fence needs via request a quote or a phone call, and complete a fencing project without you needing to leave your home.

Thinking about utilizing a composting bucket service? With this increase in at-home cooking comes an increase in food scrap waste, which means there is no better time to start! Bucket drop off or pick up is inherently contactless for many recycling organizations, making it a safe option during social distancing.While there is little reason to rock the fanciest threads in our closets, now is the moment to show those dress clothes (and virtual wedding attire) some TLC. Be sure to check your local recommendations for which non-essential businesses are open. If so, see if your dry cleaner is offering “delivery during COVID-19” in their business highlights section!
