      Tim and Kay Diemont

      Are your weekends plagued with to-do lists? Does dealing with home repairs and seasonal maintenance make your blood pressure rise? Here at TruBlue, we provide reliable, professional Yorktown maid service; total maintenance and repair; emergency repairs; handyman services and other property care services. Whether you require a single-room cleanup or a total house refresh, TruBlue’s prompt, dependable, courteous team is here to help. I’m Tim Diemont and my wife Kay and I opened this business in early 2013. I was sick of traveling for the retail industry – where I worked for almost 30 years after serving in the Air Force – and Kay was ready to move on from her career as an administrative assistant for an architectural firm. We decided to open TruBlue because we wanted to stay in Yorktown, the community we call home, and work with families and seniors. TruBlue gave us an opportunity to work together, own a small business and make a positive impact on our community. Although TruBlue is a national company, our local franchise is located right here in Yorktown and we work with employees and residents in this region. In addition to our regular maintenance and repair services, TruBlue can help seniors stay safe in their homes by handling home modifications and needed upgrades. We’re also proud to work with the military to get base housing ready for new occupants. TruBlue is special because we can take care of all your Yorktown property needs with just one call. Say goodbye to the days of working with landscapers, cleaning services, repair contractors and maintenance professionals individually. By working with TruBlue, one call does it all.

    It’s getting warmer and starting to feel like summertime. When the weather gets nicer we know that more people spend their days outside enjoying nature. Although spring and summer are beautiful, there are some inherent dangers to the outdoors that we have to remember, especially as we age. We’ve put together a list of 5 outdoor safety tips and ticks for the aging adventurer in your life. 1 Decluttering your Sheds and Garages. Decluttering your space is extremely important when trying to prevent many issues, such as cleanliness and tripping hazards. Decluttering can also help prevent the masking of potential critter and bug infestations. It can also reduce the amount of dust that builds up, for cleaner air aiding with allergies. Garages and sheds are great for storage, but if it becomes cluttered, disorganized, or if it’s bursting at the seams, the space no longer is safe and now poses a risk for items falling down and becoming tripping hazards, and making your items unusable because they’re too hard to access. 2 Proper Lighting. As we age, our eyesight deteriorates rapidly, which makes having proper lighting on both the inside and outside of the house extremely necessary. Making sure that your home is properly lit on the outside can help prevent tripping when walking over unstable ground and terrain. There are many different types of lights that you can use on the exterior of your home, but some of the best ones to use are motion sensor lights, path lights, and stair lights, all of which can help make the exterior of your home the best and safest it can be. Some lights are even solar powered so you’ll never have to worry about changing a battery or running electricity from your house to the lights. 3 Outdoor Shade Cover. One of the best things for people of all ages to do for their health is to sit outside and get some fresh air, however as we grow older there are some increased risks for doing so. As we age, we become more susceptible to contracting skin cancer from the sun's harmful UV rays. A good way to enjoy the outdoors while also staying safe from the dangerous UV is to invest in a shade cover. A fabric shade cover can block up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, along with cooling your patio by up to 20 degrees. There are many other types of covers that can protect your skin from the sun including pergolas, umbrellas, awnings, and canopies. Shade covers can help you get that freedom of enjoying the outdoors again, without putting you at risk for skin cancer. 4 SHS Monitoring Technology. One new feature offered by Seniors Home Services is their Remote Care Monitoring technology. Their Remote Care Monitoring system uses motion detectors, sensors, and AI to detect unusual behaviors in the residents home, without invasive cameras. Behaviors such as inactivity, open doors late at night, and the stove or water being on for too long are all detected through their sensors. All these different sensors paired with the AI software can help notify technicians of potentially hazardous situations. The system helps reduce the risk of falls and allows for quick responses to falls should they happen. This system also includes a necklace that has a button on it in case you run into trouble while outside of your house. 5 Enhance your Outdoor Mobility. Mobility is important for everyone, but its importance grows as you age. Ensuring that you’re able to move freely around your home and yard is an essential part to being able to Age-in-Place. If you utilize mobility devices, such as walkers, canes, or scooters, getting an outdoor ramp and widening your entrance way is extremely important to get around comfortably. Not only is being comfortable extremely important, but the safety that these ramps provide is extremely important for everyone using them. Ramps provide that extra mobility for people who need it the most. TruBlue offers services such as ramp installations and doorway widening, which can help make mobility much safer. To help with clutter, we have our maid service, which allows for customizable options as far as scheduling and what work you need done. Installation of Outdoor Shade Covers can also be done by our TruBlue Tru-Pro home technicians. TruBlue technicians can also install external motion detectable lights that can help make sure you get where you need to be in the dark. Lastly, since TruBlue is partnered with Senior Home Services we can help get the Remote Care Monitoring system up and running.
    Mother’s day is quickly approaching around the corner. Here at TruBlue we love mothers. Many of our successful business owners are mothers themselves. We believe they deserve the world, or, at the very least, much more than a haphazard bouquet of half wilted flowers, or the remains of a stick mess that’s left over from a well-intentioned breakfast in bed. If you agree with us and are searching for meaningful ideas for the special mom in your life, you’re in the right place. We have come up with a couple of ideas to get your home, or home of a deserving mother in your life, ready in time for their day. 1 Finish the Honey Do List. Chances are the special mother in your life is a great delegator. This means that there’s probably a list of small chores around the house that she’s been giving to someone. This list might include things like hanging the TV on the wall, fixing cabinet doors that have become out of alignment, quieting a squeaky door hinge or more. If there is no list, studies have shown that the average American home has at least 22 small tasks that need completed. Complete this list and we can promise you the extra functionality on the house will enhance her day-to-day life. 2 Redo your Kitchen Cabinets. Most moms spend a lot of time looking at the kitchen. Ensure that what they look at is not only functional but also easy on the eyes. Repainting the cabinet doors, adding kitchen handles, or updating the appliances will all impact the appearance of the kitchen, and even, in some instances, the functionality of the space. 3 Do some Landscaping. Spring is here, and that means that the ground is thawing if you live in a colder climate. This is where we can go above and beyond last minute grocery store bouquet. Spend some time outside and plant some flowers yourself. Weed the flowerbeds, lay down new mulch, and plant something beautiful. When planted correctly and taken care of, the flowers should bloom for years of enjoyment, rather than wilting within the month. Mowing the grass while you’re at it will only make the flowerbeds stand out even more. 4 Baby/Pet Proof the House. For the new mothers or mothers of young children, or new pets, consider if baby proofing the place would be a good use of resources. Installing strong gates can keep both pets and curious toddlers alike out of places that they shouldn’t get to go. Look at the kitchen. Set up soft-close cabinets, or put childproof locks so that little fingers and paws can’t get smashed between the cabinet and the door. Put some plug covers over open sockets, and protect little heads from sharp furniture corners by putting up corner protectors. If you need help setting up baby cameras or other monitoring devices your local TruBlue can assist you there. 5 Create a Dedicated Home Office or Mom Only Space in the House. Move over Man Cave, it’s time for a dedicated mother zone. Moms are not stay at home wives anymore. Many of them work from home, run side businesses and hustles, or donate their time to various volunteer activities. Give them a dedicated space to work or relax in. This mother’s day consider sprucing up this room. Invest in some wall decor or furniture to fill the space and make it both beautiful and functional. Or look at what the office needs, a new printer, a new computer monitor, better lighting, and invest in some new technology for the space. Mom’s deserve so much, and this mother's day give them something special to make their house more beautiful and functional. Give them something that lasts for months. If you need help to complete these tasks contact your local TruBlue and we will be happy to help set up the perfect mother’s day surprise.
