Sanitizing high touch points in your home.

Unless you've just woken up from a two-month-long nap, your life has been sent into chaos because of the Coronavirus. Sanitizing high touch points in your home.

Hand sanitizer, essential cleaning products, and for some reason, toilet paper are luxuries that not everyone can obtain. Now we are left scratching our heads on how to protect ourselves and our homes. 

Even though the stay at home orders are being followed for most places across the globe, many people still have to work, and businesses are slowly opening, which could lead to potentially bringing the virus home, either by touching something or the virus in their clothes. Grocery shopping, ordering take out food, or even checking the mail are all things we once thought were harmless, could now potentially put us at risk.

Mr. Teele arrived quickly, diagnosed our outage problem and fixed it that same afternoon. We have an older electrical system that many other electricians simply won't work with. But Mr. Teele confidently made repairs and even called to check on us the next day to ensure all was working well.

My Mother recently came to live with me, and I needed a fan installed in her west-facing room, to keep it cool in the guest room. I had to wait a little bit, but it was worth it. The price was reasonable, I could tell he was conscientious and he made an extra effort to do as much as he could while he was here - including going down through a difficult attic to install, so the wires would not show. Highly recommend. He came with his grandson and they worked a few hours. Hoping to get him back soon for some more work. Thank you, John!
