8 Tips for Time Poor Lane Covians

We are all busy!! Sometimes it just makes sense to have someone come to you rather than fighting for a car park, navigating broken escalators and dealing with the heat or rain. In the Cove has details of 8 Service Providers that come to you, to make your life easier.

Update – since we published this article, we have now been made aware of a new time saving mobile podiatry service.

HairCRAFT Mobile Salon

Why not have your hair done at home? This is a terrific service for new mums, and people who work from home. Having your hair done at home means no need to arrange a babysitter. If you work from home you can multi-task while your hair is being done (you can do quite a bit between applying foils and having them removed). You know what they say – a hairdressing appointment is better than therapy. Haircraft Mobile Salon may be a service that you might like to try.

They regularly clean rugs, couches, mattresses and much more. They have told ITC they are the experts at getting chewing gum and blue tac out of carpets.

Lane Cove is well known as a mouldy area (particularly if you live around bushland). Vapour Clean has a cleaning system using dry vapour to kill and remove dust mites and mould all without using harsh chemicals. So just call Craig on 0422 250 781 or email [email protected]
