Dear Valued Customer,
Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.
For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.
Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.
Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.
We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

Home Remodeling / June 16, 2017
If you have a furry friend at home and plan to do some remodeling work soon, you should make sure that your new living spaces are pet-friendly. Handyman Connection of Mountain View discusses a few design ideas that can make your home friendlier to your pets.
Choose a Sturdier Flooring
Your flooring is going to get scraped a lot by your pets – not to mention get piddled on. We suggest you get sturdier flooring that can withstand the traffic from you and your pets. We recommend flooring made from stronger materials, such as laminate, stone, and painted concrete. Apart from boasting a more durable surface, these flooring are also easier to clean.
Hardwood flooring is another option, especially if you prefer the wood-look on your living spaces. Unlike regular wooden floors, these boast more durability. Oak and mahogany are the best, and they’re visually attractive, too.
Cat and Dog Friendly Carpeting
Wall-to-wall carpeting is a great alternative to throw rugs and singular carpets, and is friendlier to your cats and dogs. Your pets can slip on a carpet or drag it around and cause a mess. With wall-to-wall carpeting, the surface of your living space is easier to grip for your furry friend. You also give them more napping options.
If you’re worried about carpet stains, we suggest going with neutral or darker colored carpets. Multicolor patterns are also a great choice; just make sure the design respects the appearance of your living space
Pick the Right Fabrics
Make sure to pick fabrics that are easier to clean. These include denim, canvas, and synthetic fabrics. Crypton super fabrics are a good choice since not only are they easier to clean, it resists moisture and odor.
We also suggest replacing the fabrics of your furniture, especially if your pets love lounging on your chairs and sofas so that they are easier to clean and maintain.
