Safety is our No. 1 priority! Remember that many of our homeowners are elderly with vision and mobility limitations. They are more likely than we are to trip over scraps of lumber, hurt themselves lifting trash bags or moving furniture. If for some reason something is left undone when you leave, please make sure the homeowner is aware of this.
