As homeowners, we are convinced we can handle it all – work, family, social lives and volunteering. We also must make time for ongoing home maintenance, including mowing the lawn, fixing the gutters, painting the bedroom, spraying for spiders, etc. With Busy Living, there is a better way.
Reclaim lost time
If you are like most American families, you spend more than 244 hours every year on home and yard care, in addition to time associated with hiring and managing professionals to maintain heating, air and sprinkler systems. Busy Living not only saves you the time of doing these services, we even save you the time of worrying about them or anything else related to your home.
Protect your investment
Deferred home maintenance is one of the main reasons homes lose value over time. The Busy Living program helps you take care of your home and maintain its value.
Yes, it’s included!
The comfort of knowing that one trusted company will be visiting your home each week to address your home and yard needs is complete peace of mind for you. There’s no more wondering about what needs to be done and who to call to do it. With Busy Living’s all-inclusive concept, it’s not only included… it’s done!
