"House cleaning... does a consistent excellent job in cleaning my home. has been working for me for 7 years, and I" would never change. She cleans my entire families houses and their friends as well. She is trustworthy, dependable, and easy to work with. Never disappoints me.

"The entire experience was absolutely horrible. First of we were asked for money before they even started the job, which was already a red flag for me. They never" came on time, always few hours later than agreed upon. But most importantly, the quality of work is terrible. We are left with a bathroom that needs a lot of fixing and touching up. Absolutely not what I expected when I hired a contractor. I would not recommend his services to anyone.

Sounds like all you need is a drill and a drill motor of normal size. It is not hard to drill into concrete with a concrete bit and use small concrete anchors for the screws. Check with your local hardware store for advice on material you need.
?

Search "dirty socks syndrone" ,if that is what you have it is the most common odor issue with HVAC.

 

Other then that, have the system cleaned, be sure they clean the indoor unit and coil.

responded to a that I made on another contractor website. He was the only one who was interested in the job. I think because it was a very small project others didn't want to be bothered with it (my opinion!) He messaged me and asked me to call him for more details. I answered a few questions and ...More he gave me an estimate over the phone. We set up a day and time for him to come and do the work. He checked with me the night before to be sure we were still on. He texted me that morning to let me know when he would arrive. He was prompt and looked over the project then got started. I don't think he was even here an hour before he finished. I looked at it and it was perfect. I mentioned that I will be looking for someone soon to clean the carpet in only that one room and he mentioned that he will be doing carpet cleaning soon and he gave me an estimate which is what I was thinking I'd be willing to pay. We have two other bedrooms that will be getting new carpet in a year or so and he told me that he also sells carpet so I will definitely have him come out when the time comes and give me an estimate for that, too. Can you tell I will use him again and will recommend him to friends and family? :)

I currently am a resident here at this complex. I have lived here for almost two years. I would recommend against renting here unless your circumstances are dire. I am going to try to give a fair review, both good and bad. I a not trying to be a livid, ranting, angry person. Mostly I am just sad, sad that management here cares so little about their ...More residents. But people deserve to know the truth here. I also recommend looking at apartmentratings.com. You will see the vast majority of residents would not recommend this complex for housing either. I do have to say the maintenance staff seems friendly and as helpful. But I get the impression they are overworked and have limited resources. First let's start with the good. The prices are good (low) and you can get the "All Bills Included" option. It is located close to Fort Houston, which makes it ideal for military personnel, and there are many amenities located near by. That is really the only good I can come up with here. The now for the bad. don't move here if you have more than one vehicle, or you expect good parking, or parking at all (except you 1 assigned parking space). There is little to no extra parking, and you should expect to fight with neighbors or park far far away from your apartment. it doesn't help they let non-running, broke down, cars with flat tires park in the extra parking spots for months at a time. Taking away the few extra parking spaces. You cannot buy additional assigned paring spaces either. People are forced to park in areas marked "No Parking", or in areas where it is dangerous to park. Not to mention, the management will tell you that you CAN park in certain areas, only to tow your car when you do and then claim they never said that. Also don't be surprised if your car gets broken into or stolen from here. Despite being gated cars are often broken into here. Ours was broken into as well as stolen since we have lived here. The office shows little interest in this or doing something about it. Laundry. I would not (and don't) expect to use any of the facilities here. They are often broken/dirty. Also you must use the debit cards (not ) to operate them. You can only load money on your card, in the office, during their business hours. SO if you work Monday thru Friday between the hours of 9am and 5pm, don't expect to EVER be able to load it. In the event you do get to, load extra money, because the machines will steal (deduct) random extra amounts of money off your card. Often if the machines are broken you do not know it until you put your card in and it deducts the money. Only for you to then find out the machine is not working. There are several laundry facilities here and I have had the same experience with most of them. When you report this to the office, expect to be told there is nothing they can do about it, and to be given an 800 number to call to get your money back. Also, you will not have your calls returned from this number and if you do, you will be referred back to the office. The apartments are not bad here, let's just say you get what you pay for. However, we have had maintenance issues (kitchen sink overflowing dirty water and dirty water backing up into the dishwasher). In both these instances it flooded the kitchen, and warped the countertop. Maintenance did come later in the day to inspect it, and they DID snake the drain both times. However they never did replace/repair the countertop. So now it has a giant wave in it that makes anything you set on top of it wobble. Also when it rains badly our apartment floods through the foundation (under the carpet. Every time this has happened the solution was to put a large, industrial fan/blower on it until it is dry. No structural repairs have been made. Some of our furniture and property was damaged/destroyed when this first happened, and now there is a constant faint smell of mold. The property does seem to have a fairly urgent roach problem as well. WE put roach bait traps in our apartment and that seems to keep them to a dull roar. Lastly the staff (excluding maintenance). Unless you are signing a lease (or planning on it) or it has something to do with you giving them money, the office staff is frequently unfriendly, and unhelpful. Complaints that are not of an emergent nature are often ignored or blown off. Questions are often answered with vague answers. And that is if they are open or answer the phone. We can't wait for our lease to be up so we can move. I do have to say though that almost all of the residents I have met have been friendly and helpful. We have been fortunate to have great neighbors for the most part, and have been able to make friends here. Not all is bad here, but I certainly would never recommend living here if you have anywhere else to go.

Left a message on their website and JM responded fairly quickly. We awarded the job to Spectrum because of the schedule, their professionalism and price.
Our new home was completely transformed by their paint job. They use high-quality paint and most importantly, they are very responsive to your inquiries.
If ...More we have another major paint or trim job at our home, I'll definitely call JM again.

We recently moved into this house (with some boxes still lying around), and parts of the home are actively under renovation. Thus, had their work cut out for them!!! We asked them to focus their efforts on dusting, sweeping & vacuuming, and they did that very well and more! Very pleased and have asked them to come back ...More on a regular basis.

Going into a large project like this I had, as expected, many fears regarding putting the fate of the project in the hands of one single contractor. That ended up being my best decision. I couldn't have not been happier with the outcome. Their attention to detail and professionalism was obvious from Day 1. 's guidance ...More and personal attention to every single detail prevented us from making crucial mistakes and highlighting areas we can improve our own ideas The execution was flawless. If there was even a small detail that was done wrong, noticed it himself and made sure it will be fixed. Equally important - they are always responsive with any question / issue you have. The project was delivered as promised (even at higher standards) and on time. Everyone who comes to our apartment is impressed with the quality of the renovation. To conclude: Do not look any further - is your firm for quality, timing and piece of mind. If you still have any doubts, I am happy to have you over at my place so you can see the quality of work for yourself. Ask for my contact info

told me originally that he would be coming to my rental house the following weekend and would be giving us the quote and getting the job done that day. Apon arrival, he told me he would not be able to get the job done that day due to personal obligations but would finish it first thing the next day. He asked me to write a check ...More for the materials and when I asked for a business card I realized it did not have a CCB # on it. He then tells me a story about not even having a drivers licences because he lost his birth certificate when he moved. he instead gave me a piece of mail that had his "wifes" name on it to write the check to. He promised to be at the job site at 9am and would have it done by the afternoon. The next day I texted him to see how much materials were and to confirm he was at the site. He comes up with a story that he had to go to another home depot to get a few more items. At this time, it was already 10 am. At around 12, i recived a call from my renters telling me he wasnt there yet. I called again. He tells me that home depot doesnt open until 9 am and he needed to go to another loaction to find other materials. He tells me he is still in Portland and wouldnt be at my house for another 20-30 minutes but hes on his way. I then realized that this guy is extremly unprofessinal and didnt want to keep my renters waiting anymore on their Sunday. I told him to forget about it and cancelled the job. He of course cashed my check immediatly for $140 and argued with me 4 days later that he didn't believe he needed to return the money. He accused ME of wasting HIS time. He was extremly unprofessinal and is a compulsive liar. He eventually offered to pay me $100 back so I wouldnt take him to court.
