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.

Sincerely,

George Brisker
Owner/President

5 Reasons to Hire Professionals for Refinishing Hardwood Flooring

If you have hardwood flooring, you probably love those floors and want them to last as long as possible. That means you’ll have to refinish them with some regularity. While refinishing is the kind of DIY job you might want to embrace on your own, there are several good reasons (at least 5) why you might want to leave the work up to a professional.

1.  Hardwood Flooring Should be Gorgeous

It’s no accident that you have floors made of hardwood. Real wood is perhaps the most elegant and sophisticated kind of flooring, so why take any chances when it comes to refinishing? Ideally, only a skilled craftsmen should be allowed to refinish your beautiful hardwood flooring.

2. It’s Cost-Effective

Granted, you will have to pay a little upfront to have a professional refinish your hardwood flooring. If you refinish your floors on your own, you’ll save some money in the short-term, but you’re unlikely to give them the treatment that will really help them last, and the only alternative to refinishing is replacing them entirely. In case you haven’t noticed, installing new hardwood floors is far more expensive than refinishing.

3. Improve Your Home’s Resale Value

No matter what kind of home improvement job you have in mind, you always have to take your home’s resale value into consideration. By having professionals handle the refinishing of your hardwood flooring, you’re ensuring that you’re getting the most value out of your home.

4. Protect Your Family

Your hardwood floors are the foundation of the home’s interior. As with the walls and roof, if your floors aren’t properly maintained, your home could suffer permanent damage, and people might get hurt. Having pros take care of your floors is essential for keeping your home as safe as possible.

5. Discover Infestations

When you have your hardwood flooring refinished by professionals, you’re enlisting experts to go over every inch of your floors. In the process, they’ll discover any damage that may have occurred, including the presence of pests such as termites. The sooner these are discovered, the better.

If you’re ready to have your own hardwood flooring refinished — or would like help with any other household job — don’t hesitate to call the skilled craftsmen at Handyman Connection of Mountain View, CA, today!
