Get Spring Cleaning Performed By Handy Workers

Spring is just around the corner, and many are considering their homes and how clean or unclean it currently is. Those who feel the need to do spring cleaning will gear up for the long cleaning process, but there is a way to get around doing spring cleaning in a home. Instead of having those in the home doing the spring cleaning, why not hire a cleaning company to do it instead? Handy is a cleaning company that can send workers to do spring cleaning in anyone’s home, no matter the size of the home.

Handy does have services, such as painting, moving, furniture assembly, furniture delivery, plumbing, electrical work and more, but the cleaning services that Handy offers are the most sought after services from the company. Handy makes it extremely easy for anyone to get an account by allowing them to sign up online within about a minute. Once the account is created with the proper information, then it’s possible to make an appointment for the services that are needed. Most of the services offered by Handy can have a person come out to the customer’s home within a day.

Many love the fact that they don’t have to wait long periods of time to get the services they need from Handy. Customers can get Handy workers in their home to get the spring cleaning they need after making an appointment with Handy. It doesn’t matter the size of a person’s home because Handy has more than enough workers available to clean any size home, whether a single worker is needed or more than one worker.

The price of the service will be given to the customer beforehand, and many services are billed at a flat rate, so a customer can determine if the service is something they want or not. Many customers have found themselves getting several services at once, which is understandable because there are many things that can be done inside of a home. Those who need cleaning services, as well as painting services or other services, can hire different workers at once, and they can get their house looking great in no time.

Safe and Secure: Making Inmate Communication Something to Enjoy

In a world where crime is constantly rising, we often times forget about the loved ones of the incarcerated. Regardless of the crime, those inmates are someone’s husband, wife, or child, and being able to stay in contact with them is not always easy nor is it cheap. “Securus Technologies is the leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring.” (“Securus Adds Sales Executive”, 2016). Serving more than 3,450 agencies and over 1,200,000 inmates, Securus Technologies has found a way to make the experience better for everyone. 

Based in Dallas Texas, Securus Technologies has multiple platforms including: Securus Online; Securus Video Visitation; ConnectUs; Secure Call Platform; Investigator Pro; and SecureView (https://securustech.net/) all of which have recently been updated to resolve defects and provide additional patches. This is the first upgrade of 2016, and is expected to be a huge improvement. 

According to the New York Times, an average cost for inmate phone calls in a state or local prison is about twenty cents per minute before the fees. After fees are included, your call could reach upwards of $1.22 per minute, and with a typical call lasting about 15 minutes, that’s $18.30 for one 15 minute phone call. Using the Securus call platform however they keep the cost affordable at $3.99 for a 15 minute phone call.

Along with the calling platform you can also take advantage of the Video Visitation platform. You simply need to download Securus’ app, or visit the website from your computer, and you are able to have a video visit with your loved one from your home. This is also a much more affordable option when you have quite a distance between you and the facility your loved one resides at. A 10 minute visitation costs $5.00 and a 20 minute video visitation costs $10.00. It is important to remember that not all services are offered at all facilities. So be sure to check with your facility ahead of time. 

From my experience, Securus Technologies has been not only a more convenient option, but has alleviated some of the stress of an already stressful situation. I have been in the unfortunate circumstance of having to use these services in the past, and before I knew they were available, I spent almost $300 in just the first few weeks. Using Securus Technologies, I cut that bill what seemed like almost in half (still a lot of money, I know!). I was able to manage life without my loved one, and without completely losing communication. Letters are great, but because of Securus we were able to be there for each other on a much more personal level, at not break the bank in the process.
