June 2019 Truckee Update

False alarm, the cold returned! The Sierras are so unpredictable. We are still experiencing cold nights and some freezing rain/hail during the days here. We are moving forward with many spring programs even though the weather is slowing down some items. We are hoping all this moisture will at least be great for the water shed!!! But for those looking for proof that summer is upon us, here are some photos comparing May 2nd – May 31st.

1. New Inspection Forms

Many of you have sent in your rave reviews for the new inspection sheets that are coming to you live, in color, and with lots of pictures and great information. Thank you for your patience while we migrate all clients to this wonderful new feature that we are offering

2. WATER ON/OFF

Well...we keep pushing this out further. To keep your homes from being in unnecessary danger, we’ve decided to keep all water on/off in winter mode until June 15th, unless the nightly temperatures continue to stay below freezing. We will continue to keep you posted.

3. Welcome Brad!   We are happy to introduce another great team member. Brad has already met or made contact with some of you. He comes to us with experience in property management, home inspection, and other relevant fields that will make our services to you and your homes even more valuable.  A Seattle native, he has lived in the Tahoe/Truckee region for the last 8 years. He's an up-and-coming ultra-runner and spends his time training, mountain biking, and snowboarding.

4. SPRING PROGRAMS

This is a great time to get on our DEEP CLEANING list. This involves going deeper than surfaces like normal cleans. You can of course let us know what you want done and also put a cap on $ or time. This gives us the opportunity to get done some of the things that just can’t be given attention during your normal schedule. Please let us know right away if you’d like to be part of the program.

These other spring programs will fill up quick - GET ON THE LIST!

Window Washing - Carpet Cleaning - Dryer Vent Cleaning

Furniture Steam - Tile/Granite Steam - Shower Door Descale

Power washing - Deck repair or stain – Painting & Staining

Roof Tune-Up - Window Replacement - Furnace Tune-ups

It’s a great time to start on our SPA Maintenance program as well.

As a reminder there are some dates approaching with higher clean rates (in addition to weekends as usual):

July 4-5th; September 2nd; October 14th & 31st; November 11th, November 25th through the 29th; December 23rd through January 3rd.

5. DEFENSIBLE SPACE

With all this water, we are sure to see lots of brush growth and a great need for intense defensible space cleanup. Let us know right away if you receive a notice from the Forestry Service or you just would like to stay on top of this very important aspect of owning a home in what could be a very tricky fire season. Keeping that recommended defensible space and all brush/needles/cones manageable, you do your part in keeping our beautiful neighborhoods safe. SHC can provide all the help you need!

Thank you for the trust you place in us to care for your home - Jonathan, Jennifer, Noel, Jeff, Tyler, Brad, Myndi and ALL the staff at SHC!
