Air Wiz Heating & Air Conditioning's owner, Tim Slattery, draws upon more than three decades of combined HVAC know-how as he manages the servicing of home cooling units in all major brands. During an air-conditioner tune-up, a licensed technician cleans grime off the condenser coil, flushes the condensation drain line and pan, and oils the motor until it purrs like a cyborg snow tiger. Keen eyes inspect all the wiring, compressor and motor-amp draws, and refrigerant levels, then give the evaporator coil a formidable ogling. Customers supply their own air filter, which the technician expertly pops into place to prevent dust or Roosevelt-era jokes from tickling homeowners' lungs.
During the property-cleanup service, professional lawn doctors at Laurel Crest mow grass, edge hard and soft surface areas, cut down and spray weeds, and trim any hedges and shrubs. In order to ensure clients become life-long customers, staff members devoted to customer service listen to each person's needs during every job, post free money-saving maintenance tips on Laurel Crest's Facebook page, and serenade homeowners with a full mariachi band. Before the team rolls out, they make sure to clear loose debris, which includes air-blasting driveways and parking spots, and removing trimmings.
Drawing on 10 years of design experience, Action Seasonal Décor's inspired decorators gussy up household exteriors with seasonal displays, flowers, and professional light installations. Armed with festive glitz and grandeur, punctual and accommodating designers arrive ready to embellish dwellings with holiday cheer.

One large and two medium flowerpots add flair to doorsteps, and seven medium gourds accent porches with seasonal pops of colors.
NuView Dryer Vent Cleaning employs powerful tools to track down the lint that sulks deep within the crevices, elbows, and bends of a home’s dryer vents. Technicians start by agitating lint with spinning rotary brushes. They then extricate fibers with the same technology that companies use to clean air ducts. Good thing they do: excess lint can cause dryers to run hotter and longer, producing higher energy bills and, potentially, the release of carbon monoxide from gas dryers. In addition to de-linting dirty vents, owner and operator Randall Wiggins offers real-estate-agent services and home inspections through partnership companies and high-fives through a subsidiary known as Fivin' It! LLC.
Big Guy Moving’s licensed and insured haulers trim the stress from the moving process, leaving behind a smooth finish that strikes a balance between safety and efficiency. A minimum of three years experience backs each member of the team, who arrive at jobsites equipped to pack, move, and clean up afterward. In addition to standard moving services, Big Guy Moving is also available to load or unload box trucks, transfer items from room-to-room, or complete residential appliance and furniture deliveries—a far safer alternative to launching refrigerators across Jacksonville’s skies with a trebuchet.
