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.

Maintenance / November 15, 2021
Fall is the ideal time to inspect and maintain your gutters. Leaves fall from the trees when the weather cools, accumulating in your gutter. This just causes congestion, which is not only inconvenient but also potentially dangerous during severe rainstorms.
There are several things you can do throughout the year to keep your gutters in good working order, including keeping them clean and trimming back overgrown trees that could cause difficulties. We’ll go over each of these gutter cleaning methods in detail below.
The first thing to keep in mind before working on your gutter is that if it becomes clogged or unclean enough, water will begin to pool around your foundation instead of draining correctly. This is more of a problem in the winter when there are fewer leaves falling and gutters aren’t utilized as often, but it can happen at any time of year, especially if your gutter is clogged with pine straw or other material that isn’t generally there.
Maintaining your gutters on a regular basis is the greatest method to avoid this. Cleaning them out with a leaf blower or vacuum is the easiest way to accomplish it. If you don’t have one of them, a rake will suffice. Just keep an eye out for leaves that get trapped in the bends of your gutter and can’t be easily removed.
