Appliance Installation

Not only can new appliances make your home look better aesthetically, but up-to-date designs can also help to increase home value in certain instances. And while everyone loves the look of a new fridge, gas cooktop or dishwasher, it should go without saying that installing new appliances is only an upgrade if it’s done properly. Don’t risk breaking a circuit or stressing about any other technical do’s and don’ts. Jiffy can connect you with Pros that know the proper procedures for installing any sort of appliance.

We help make the appliance installation process easy for you from start to finish. And with our pre-quoted jobs, you’ll know what you owe without having to scour different websites. We even provide fixed rates upfront for when the job requires more than one technician or if you’d like us to dispose of your old appliances. Any additional costs, such as the need for specific missing parts, will be quoted by your Pro.

Appliance Repair

Whether it’s dishwashers emitting strange smells, smoky malfunctioning ovens, washing machines that won’t drain or dry, or a freezer that won’t freeze, appliance repair is a common problem for homeowners and landlords alike. In certain extreme cases, or if you’ve been hanging onto the same outdated appliances since the 70s, installing new appliances is a better option. But if you’re dealing with newer units and/or smaller, isolated issues, connecting with a Jiffy appliance repair Pro is an ideal solution for fridges, stoves, dishwashers, washers, dryers and more.

For a pre-set rate, Jiffy-booked technicians will diagnose and advise on the best solution for your broken appliance and fix on the spot if possible. Dealing with Miele, Wolf or Sub-Zero appliances? 1.5x rates will apply. Any additional parts will be quoted by your Pro.

Artificial Turf

If you are interested in laying down artificial turf in Toronto, a city bylaw states that at least 75% of your front lawn must be soft landscaping (an open, unobstructed area that supports the growth of vegetation). Predictably, artificial turf does not meet the requirements for soft landscaping. In other words, it’s advised to avoid laying synthetic turf down in your front lawn.

That being said, backyards are ideal spaces for artificial turf: it can make for fantastic play areas for kids, it’s low maintenance, requires no water to maintain and can become a unique design feature. If you’re interested in making the change, Jiffy can connect you with turf installation Pros that will get the job done right. Turf installation is a 1-2 day process, and involves excavating and disposing of existing soil and grass, followed by laying a 2"-3" bed of crushed limestone, before rolling out the turf, cut and seamed to measure. After you’ve been in touch with your Pro regarding the job details, they will be happy to provide a free quote based on the scope of the work.

BBQ Cleaning and Repair

While many homeowners quickly clean their BBQs before or after cooking on it, few take the time to complete the job properly. Like any home appliance, BBQs require routine care to perform at the highest level. Normal wear and tear of inner BBQ components can result in food contamination, a gassy or greasy taste, and unevenly cooked food. BBQ cleaning and repair should be a fundamental aspect of your spring or summer preparations.

Jiffy BBQ cleaning and repair Pros can address stubborn cases of caked-on grease, grime and ensure that your BBQ is carcinogen-free before the grilling season starts. Our BBQ Pros completely disassemble, scrub, de-grease, wash, inspect, and polish each component to make it look, feel and perform like new. The entire process takes 2-3 hours and you don’t even need to be home for it. After a comprehensive cleaning and any necessary repairs, your grill will be in perfect working order once again.

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Have you ever dragged your feet across the carpet and picked up hair on your socks? Or sat on your furniture only to kick up a cloud of dust and debris? It could be time for a cleaning. While vacuuming, sweeping and dusting are all relatively effective in preventing a household takeover, there are times when a deeper clean is essential. Cleaning your carpets and upholstery regularly helps remove embedded dust and allergens that cannot be removed with a household vacuum. It also can increase the health and lifespan of these household items.

Leave the deep cleaning to the Pros. Jiffy professionals have an intuitive and comprehensive understanding of which cleaning solutions and practices should be used on different fabrics to avoid any undue damage and discolouration. Jiffy Pros will clean all your carpets and upholstery on site for a fixed price by room. Items like rugs will be picked up, deep-cleaned and returned back to you a few days later.

Decks and Fences

Whether you like to host guests in the summer, or sit in your backyard in peace, the idea of having a beautiful and private backyard is an appealing one. It’s not surprising then, that adding or refurbishing a backyard deck and/or fence has high value on your home. Besides being relatively easy to erect, decks and fences create defined spaces for BBQs, patio furniture and potted plants that help with the aesthetic of your backyard. However, installing a deck and/or fence doesn’t just have to be a practical consideration. Yes, they both provide practical uses like having a private space to enjoy your yard, but they can be so much more if the design is taken into account.

When deciding on installing a new deck or fence you have to consider the space, size, materials, design elements and more. Whether you are going for a bold, modern look or a classic feel, Jiffy can match you with amazing deck and fencing Pros that will provide fair, accurate quotes based on the preferences you have and the size of the job.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

It’s important to have your dryer vents cleaned periodically to ensure that your dryer is working at maximum effectiveness and efficiency. More important than that, though, are the safety implications involved. Clean dryer vents are essential to reducing the possibility of dryer fires. The most telltale signs that a dryer vent needs cleaning are:

  1. It’s been a year or more since the last cleaning
  2. Clothes are not completely dry after a regular cycle
  3. Excessive lint and debris in the trap and in the dryer
  4. The unit gets unusually hot during operation

More than just a chance to deep clean unchecked, inaccessible areas in your home, having your dryer vent cleaned is a chance to make the home healthier, safer and more efficient. For preset, industry-average rates, Jiffy can connect you with dryer vent cleaning Pros that will get the job done thoroughly and to a high standard.

Duct Cleaning

Because so much of an HVAC is hidden behind walls out of sight, it can be difficult to know when to clean your air ducts or if it’s even worth it. While it doesn’t have to be done often, having your ducts serviced for dust, mold, pet hair and moisture is absolutely worth it. When it comes to have your ducts professionally serviced, it’s important to remember the following three things:

  1. Have your HVAC system assessed for cleanliness prior to the start of any job
  2. Have a Pro explain to you the nature of the job and the work that’s involved
  3. It’s only effective if the HVAC system’s components are serviced as a whole

So while cleaning your ducts can undeniably help to improve the air quality in your home, the air quality doesn’t stand a chance of improving unless the service is thorough. This is why duct cleaning should always be left to trained, accredited professionals. A Jiffy Pro will assess your duct situation, ensure that you fully understand the scope of the services, and complete the job to a high standard.

Eavestrough Repair

Eavestroughs are the channels affixed to the outer edges of your roof to collect and channel water runoff away from the home. These fixtures, along with soffits (the underside of the overhanging part of the roof), downspouts and siding material, are all highly susceptible to damage due to factors like age, moisture and extreme weather.

Ensuring these fixtures are in perfect shape should be a priority for homeowners during the spring and fall seasons. The unique weather demands put eavestrough systems at risk of damage and blockages. This also means that the home becomes more susceptible to water damage and infiltration. Some signs to look out for are:

  • The eavestroughs are sagging or pulling away from the eaves
  • You notice any sort of leakage from corners, seams or joints
  • Eavestroughs won’t drain water properly if there is a bad pitch. Whether it’s from poor installation or undue damage, this poor pitch must be addressed as it can lead to pooling water and further damage to your eaves.

No matter whether you need a full-scale replacement or eavestrough repairs, leave it to the Pros. Jiffy can instantly match you with an amazing company to provide a quote.

Electrical Services

If you’re dealing with an unexplained power outage, light fixtures that need to be installed, a blown fuse or deck lights that need to be wired, Jiffy electricians are available for bigger and smaller jobs. The benefits of going with an electrician rather opting to do it yourself, should be obvious. If you have no experience, even the most benign electrical task is dangerous and exacting. Why risk injury or a botched job when one of our Pros can get it done right the first time?

All Jiffy electricians are certified by the ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) and available at preset, industry-average rates (no need to scour websites looking for the best price). Simply book online or through our app, fill in your job details and we will connect you to the nearest electrician. If there are any additional materials or quotes needed for the job, you will be quoted by your Pro.

Exterior Caulking

Exterior caulking involves sealing the outside of the home with a waterproof material that’s typically made of silicon. If done properly, caulking prevents water from seeping into the home around windows and doors and protects against drafts and heat loss. In most cases, having these areas caulked during the warmer months is advisable, caulking material can stick, harden and cure easier when the temperatures are higher (ideally between 45°F/8°C and 80°F/27°C).

Re-caulking the gaps around windows and doors is an effective way of sealing the home against energy loss. Small gaps can appear around windows and doors as old caulking deteriorates. Re-caulking can help to seal any of these unwanted spaces in order to better contain internally-conditioned air. If your home is ready for a caulking upgrade, Jiffy can connect you with exterior caulking Pros at competitive, preset rates.

Gas Services

Natural gas is an essential resource that makes your home more functional, more efficient and more comfortable. The majority of natural gas in the home is used for space and water heating, while other uses include stoves, ovens, dryers, specially-designed lighting fixtures and other types of appliances. As a home utility, properly-functioning natural gas infrastructure is essential from both a functionality and safety standpoint.  

If you’re experiencing any issues with your appliances, lines, gas fireplaces, meters or regulators, it’s essential to leave it to the Pros.

Handyman Services

Handymen are the do-it-all types. They are the perfect solution for smaller household jobs that still require a professional touch. DIY home maintenance is an acquired skill; not every homeowner has the natural abilities, instincts or home improvement knowledge to undertake those small, odd jobs that seem to come up every now and again. Contacting different companies and sifting through quotes for these types of jobs is often endlessly frustrating.

It’s these types of situations that inspired Jiffy’s model in the first place. If you have a small job that needs doing — whether it’s mounting your TV, installing a backsplash, fixing a broken cupboard, minor bathroom repairs and more — Jiffy can instantly connect you with a local handyman at a competitive, preset rate to get the job done quickly and professionally.

Heating and Cooling

Having your HVAC system tuned up and optimized multiple times a year is essential to ensure it runs efficiently during the most taxing seasons. Both summer and winter are hard on your HVAC system. Whether it’s heating or cooling, these are the seasons where these systems have to respond most actively to our comforts. That said, regular maintenance is not just about efficiency and comfort. Most HVAC warranty programs require your system to have multiple routine check ups per year.

Jiffy HVAC heating and cooling Pros will fully inspect your unit for a preset rate and recommend any repairs to ensure your system is in proper working order. Among other things, these types of inspections include:

  • Ensuring that all electrical connections are sound and that readings are normal
  • Lubricating moving parts for added performance and efficiency
  • Replacing air filters to ensure good airflow and quality (homeowners should change air filters every 3-4 months)
  • An assessment of the motor and fan blades for damage or obstructions
  • An inspection of the A/C coils, refrigerant levels and blowers
  • Ensuring that the outdoor unit is running properly and free of dirt and debris

Holiday Lights Installation

One of the more under-appreciated holiday tasks is the work and hassle that comes along with setting up holiday lights. The winter is always a wonderful time to enjoy the lights and colours of homes during the holiday season. But this enjoyment comes from looking at the lights, rather than putting them up. When it comes to having your holiday lights installed properly and safely, there’s no better way than using a Jiffy Pro. Why risk reaching high places, spending hours outside in the cold, or overloading a circuit when Jiffy Pros have the experience and knowledge to do it for you?

Junk Removal

Each year as the end of winter nears, the urge to start spring cleaning is at a high. Junk and clutter have a way of building up in our homes over the winter and that’s why dedicated junk removal is an essential part of any spring cleaning. After thoroughly going through room by room and clearing out anything you don’t want, it’s important to sort your stuff by what’s junk, what you want to donate and what you want to keep.

The worst part of spring cleaning is figuring out where to put your junk, but with Jiffy you don’t have to. Start living your clutter-free life today.

Whether it’s grass cutting, leaf and debris removal, pulling dead plants, lawn mowing or removing leaves, lawn maintenance comes with many questions:

  • What kind of fertilizer should I use?
  • What’s the difference between a weed and a plant?
  • Do I need to use fresh soil before planting grass?
  • How much grass and which direction should I be cutting and how often?

Mold Remediation

There are many different types of benign molds that can appear around the home. However, black mold is one that homeowners tend to notice the most due to its unsightly colour. Otherwise known as Stachybotrys Chartarum, black mold is potentially harmful if the mycotoxins are inhaled. Like all molds, black mold thrives in moisture-rich areas like bathrooms, kitchens, basements and leaky air ducts.

While other household molds can be black in colour, this doesn’t necessarily mean they’re Stachybotrys Chartarum. It’s for this reason why homeowners shouldn’t take any chances removing mold themselves. Jiffy can connect you with mold remediation Pros who will provide a quote based on the scope of the job. Not only can our Pros properly address the existing mold in your home, but they will also provide advice on how to prevent further breakouts.

Pest Control

Whether you’re dealing with rodents and vermin or insects, having unwanted pests in your home can feel like a major violation. While methodically sealing any sort of gaps in the exterior of your home can help, most pests only need an extremely tiny space to work their way in. While these infiltrations are sometimes unavoidable, the biggest thing you can do to prevent them is to not give pests any incentive to break in and nest. It’s important to keep your home clean, dry and well-ventilated (especially in basements) as most vermin are attracted to dirty, damp, cluttered areas where they can stay warm and hidden. Additionally, always remember to keep food sealed and in cupboards and dispose of your garbage regularly.

If all of your best efforts fail to keep pests at bay, Jiffy can instantly connect you with pest control Pros who will assess the scope of the job onsite and provide a free, competitive quote for the necessary services.

Powerwash, Stain and Seal

These three services are an excellent way to refurbish and protect your backyard deck, porch, patio or fence. For power washing to be effective, it’s important to first clean off any dust, leaves, loose dirt and debris from the surface. While it’s important to remove all the items from the surface, removing any and all planters are especially important. The spaces between these planters and the deck is a breeding ground for mildew, discolouration and decay. A thorough powerwash will then help to fully clean the deck surface. Once the deck has been fully washed and left to dry completely, applying a waterproof sealant will protect against water or ice damage.

Jiffy will connect you with powerwashing, staining and sealing Pros who can fully revitalize your deck before summer or protect it before the long winter. For those looking to change the look of their decks, porches or fences, our Pros can also apply a beautiful wood stain of your choice. Book instantly at an industry-average, preset rate to make your life easier and your deck healthier.

Roof inspection and maintenance is something every homeowner should look into at least twice a year.

Snow Removal

For those who live in northern climates and experience heavy snow in the winter months, snow removal is an important task to keep up with. Clearing snow on your driveway and walkway helps with mobility for cars and pedestrians. But the most important factor is clearing the snow to prevent falls and injuries. Regular snow removal can also prevent ice and snow to build up on your driveway, sidewalks and stairs.

Jiffy Pros are here to help you with all your snow-removal needs when you aren’t able, or aren’t willing to do them yourself. With Jiffy on-demand snow removal services, there’s a fixed price for the first four months, and a set price for each additional month.

Tile and Grout Cleaning

When it comes to upgrading the flooring in the kitchen and the bathroom, sometimes the most effective ways to do so is to deep clean the surfaces you already have. Nowhere can this deep cleaning be more impactful than with bathroom tile and grout. Bathrooms, especially ones with poor ventilation, can be havens for mold, bacteria, dirt, allergens and other unwanted intruders. The uninhibited build-up of these materials can completely ruin the aesthetic effect of your tile and grout. What’s worse, as these materials leech deeper into the grout, they will eventually create an unhygienic surface replete with irritants.

Jiffy can connect you with tile and grout cleaning Pros that will penetrate deep into your bathroom flooring to remove caked-in materials, restoring an immaculate shine to your floors.
