OCD Upkeep: Our Household Assistant Service

Chaos. Entropy. Disorder. Whatever you call it, it invades our homes every day. If you’re like many people, battling it can become a daily struggle as you try to fit every small task and errand into your busy day. A laundry list (if you’ll pardon the pun) of chores can eat away at your free time each day. And if you don’t get to them all, they just build up into a full day’s worth of work you’ll need to do—on your day off.

Don’t you wish sometimes that you had a personal assistant to help you keep up? A helper who can take over upkeep so your life stays in order—without your having to stay up late just to get it all done? Imagine waking up each day knowing you’ll get to enjoy your free time after work rather than straightening up the house.

Imagine exchanging chaos, disorder and for a neat, well-kept home. Imagine handing off your to-do list to a personal concierge who will take care of the day-to-day miscellany that’s been eating away at your leisure time. Come home from work, have your dinner and enjoy your evening, freed from the bonds of household upkeep.

  • Costco
  • Safeway

Helping Hands Dog Walking Service

Need a little help getting Fido some exercise while you’re away? For an additional $10 per day, we’ll walk your dog as part of your household upkeep service. This fee covers one dog over 25 lbs, or up to two smaller dogs, under 25 lbs each. We can usually arrange to accommodate more or larger dogs, just ask!

Your pets will get at least a half hour of leashed walking at a brisk pace, and return to your home tired and happy. With regular walks, we can even train your pet in basic commands and to be polite while on the leash.

Please make sure you have collar or harness and leash handy when your dog-walkers arrive. For everyone’s safety, we do require that all pets be up to date on vaccinations and have any required city or county registration tags.
