      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.

    November is Family Caregivers Month! Being able to care for an aging loved one is a wonderful gift and we want to start this blog by saying thank you. Whether you have a loved one living in your home or you’re providing care whether they call home, making sure the house is safe and well maintained is as important as providing medical or companion care. In honor of Family Caregivers Month, we’ve put together a list of our top five most recommended senior-focused home modifications. These modifications are all focused on preventing falls – the leading cause of injury and death in older Americans, according to the CDC. Hand Rails: Not every senior has the luxury of living in a ranch-style home. If you have steps – whether it’s a full flight of stairs or a couple of porch steps out front – you need a sturdy, correctly-installed, correct-height handrail. Handrails support a lot of weight over the years and, if yours gives way or isn’t supporting your or your loved one correctly, it can cause (or at least not prevent) falling. Grab Bars: Installing grab bars in your bathroom, especially in the shower, right outside the shower, and by the toilet can make the difference between a senior being able to do provide their own personal care or needing help. They can also be a lifeline, especially when the bathroom gets slippery. Accessible Showers and Toilets: While we’re in the bathroom, there are two more projects that are worth considering. The first is to install a raised toilet or toilet seat. Having a higher toilet seat can make getting down – and back up – much easier for older adults. Secondly, if it’s in the budget, consider swapping your bathtub for a zero-entry shower, a handicapped-accessible tub, or other more safe alternatives. Lighting: We’ve all tripped overshoes, stepped on Lego bricks, or kicked the edge of the couch in the dark but, for seniors, those painful annoyances can turn into more major issues. While the first solution might be to bring in a cleaning service, if your home is poorly lit, those tricky trip hazards can still be an issue. Installing additional lights, putting in brighter light bulbs, or lowering light switches can help. Ramps: This one might seem obvious, but ramps can be a big help even if the person you’re caring for doesn’t need a wheelchair or walker. Making sure that your home is accessible can help make sure your loved one is comfortable venturing out, prevent trip hazards for everyone in your family and prepare your home in case there is a mobility challenge later. TruBlue Total House Care’s professionally-trained technicians can make these modifications and perform home safety assessments for additional adjustments that might be needed to make your home safe and secure.
    There comes a time for every family when we transition from going to our parent's or grandparent's homes for the holidays to hosting them ourselves. Cleaning, cooking and hosting is a lot of work for our older family members, so it just makes sense to update the tradition. But while it might make sense to host the holidays yourself, have you thought about whether or not your home is age-friendly enough for your older loved ones? First of all, take a look at access. How is the parking at your home? Will your older loved ones be able to easily navigate your front steps? Do you need to tighten those bolts on your handrail? Is your entryway slick? Do you need to clean up slippery leaves? Is there room to get a walker from the door to your dining room table? Sometimes an easy rearrangement of the furniture and stationing someone outside to help seniors navigate your entryway can be enough to make access safer and easier for everyone. Secondly consider seating. While you might love your slouchy couch, it can be challenging for older adults to get in and out of low-sitting furniture and they might not want to ask for help. Could you borrow some sturdy folding chairs from a friend? Could you host everyone in the family room instead of the living room? What’s the best space to keep everyone together, but make sure everyone is comfortable. While we’re on the subject of seating, do you have enough dining room chairs? Do they have non-slip pads on the bottom? Do they need seat cushions? You don’t want to up-end your house for the holidays, but sometimes simple adjustments can make a big difference. Finally, step back and see if you need to make adjustments for safety, especially when it comes to possible trip hazards and handrails. If you are prone to get your foot caught on that shaggy rug in your living room, chances are good that it’s not friendly for older adults or walkers. The same is true for cords – or pets – that you may have stepped over a hundred times. Also, depending on the needs of your individual family members, you might want to consider picking up temporary support rails for your bathroom. These are just a few of the ways you can ensure your home is ready for family members of all ages without a complete redesign of your space or a huge investment in age-safe modifications. Have a great holiday season!
    Love it or hate it, fall is here! As we say farewell to the warmth and fun of summer, it’s time to get excited about falling leaves, sweatshirts, campfires and all things autumn. For you, that might mean packing away the white shoes and digging out your boots, but what does it mean for your home? Here are five ways you can prepare for late fall and winter. Top Down: Fall is a wonderful time to inspect your roof, clean your gutters, check your downspouts and make sure your home is ready for wetter, cooler temperatures, including ice and snow. Although some of this you can do yourself, consider bringing in a company like TruBlue to help. Standing on a ladder while trying to mitigate any gunk you might find is dangerous work. Plus, if a repair needs to be made, we can help. Prepare for the Cold: Colder temperatures always seem to sneak up on us and there’s nothing like trying to get your furnace repaired on the coldest day of the year. Before that cold snap, have your furnace or heating system inspected and, if you use a fireplace, have your chimney cleaned and inspected.This is also a great time to test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace your filters. Keep out the Draft: Sealing your doors and windows is a pretty simple process that can make a big difference when it comes to keeping in the heat – and keeping out the cold. Now is a great time to check – and possibly replace – the weather stripping and caulking around your windows and doors. If you have older windows, fall is a great time to insulate them. Bottom Up: Foundations are especially susceptible to water in the winter because of the way ice expands. If you have cracks in your foundation, fall is a great time to take stock of the situation, even if you can’t make repairs right now. While we’re talking about the bottom of your home, now is also a good time to insulate pipes that might be prone to freezing, shut down your outdoor water access and check for leaks that could become skating rinks in the dead of winter. Safety First: We could go on forever about ways to protect your home from the impending cold, but we’ll close out this blog with a quick reminder about home safety. Winter is prime time for falls, especially outside with the ice. Make sure your handrails are sturdy and accessible and that you have non-slip material right inside your doors. No one wants to come in with snowy shoes just to skid across the entryway. Whether you need help with a few of these projects or you’re ready to take seasonal maintenance (https://trubluehousecare.com/services/seasonal-work) off your list entirely, TruBlue can help.
