About Student Services

From professionally trained and friendly technicians to industry-leading equipment — we’re bringing exterior house cleaning to new heights. That’s why you should leave the ladders to us. We use the latest cleaning technologies to ensure time-efficient, thorough, and safe services. Equipment such as water-fed poles and safety equipment like fall protection ensure that we complete our work safely with minimal ladder use.

When it comes to the inside of your home, you probably stick to a cleaning schedule. However, it’s easy to forget that the outside of your home needs some TLC too. After a long winter, all sorts of dirt, moss, and other nasty substances can collect on your roof, windows, and solar panels. Cleaning your gutterswindows, and solar panels regularly extends their life and adds curb appeal to your home.

We give back to the community by being available to serve retirees, helping them to maintain their independence by maintaining their properties for them.

Trish, her son, and I

The Story of Student Services (and Home Heroes)

as told by the Founder, Chris Anderson

Knock, knock… unfortunately this is not a joke. After graduating from Roseville High School, I started Student Services in 2015 with a mission to pay for my college education. I was desparate to make money to pay for my college education. So desparate that I started cleaning garbage cans by going door-to-door in Sun City Roseville, my neighborhood 55+ active living retirement community. I started noticing retirees in the 55+ communities getting ladder-related services done like gutter cleaning, window cleaning, solar panel cleaning, and Christmas lights. I thought “I can get a ladder and do those things too.” Student Services grew by turning in A+ home services in communities like yours while I studied business at Sierra College, the University of Chicago, and the University of California. Because of Student Services, and support from people like you, I graduated college with honors and without debt. 

As a Roseville native, I came back home to Placer County to expand Student Services to serve the Sacramento area’s 55+ active living retirement communities. I was inspired to focus on retirement communities as a result of a special senior in my life, Trish. Working with Trish, as her son’s caretaker while I was in high school, showed me that many seniors need help to maintain their property in order to maintain their independence.

After coming back home to work on the buiness in 2018, a glaringly obvious point came to my attention about the services we do (gutter cleaning, window cleaning, solar panel cleaning, and Christmas lights) and who we do these services for (55+ active living retirement communities): ladders. The services we provide are ladder-related because the biggest pain point for the 65-85 year old market that we serve is getting up on a ladder to do something around the house. The catch is, homeowners often need a ladder in order to do their home maintenance. After this revelation, we switched our efforts to rebranding from “Student Services” to “Home Heroes.” Home Heroes comes to the rescue of retirees, maintaining their property so that they can maintain their independence in the place that they love the most, their home.

Punctual, dependable, trustworthy, and hard-working are just a few of the adjectives to describe Chris. We have used his handyman services for two years now and are completely and totally satisfied. Plus, he’s willing to follow my picky, detailed instructions of how I like to have things done! That means a lot to me. We gave him a five star rating!

I've known Chris for the past six years. He has done many different handyman services in my own home. The prices are fair and the work is well done. He was my employee before he started his own business to pay for his education. He graduated from UC Santa Barbara after transferring from Sierra College and has worked his way through college to graduate without debt.

We hired Student Odd Job Services last Christmas to put up our outside Christmas lights. We were rather late in contacting Chris but he was able to squeeze us in. The schedule was further complicated because of the rain. Chris had to re-schedule us a few times but he kept us informed. Highly recommend this service. Chris is very professional, honest, and performs quality workmanship. He did this to help pay his way through college how he is turning it into a business to enlist other students to provide the odd job services and help finance their way through college.

Chris has cleaned our windows inside and out twice and had done a superb job both times. He is a personable, reliable, communicative and efficient entrepreneur. Chris went above and beyond and not only left windows spotless, but wiped down other things as well, including shower glass, ceiling fans and outside bench. Incredible work ethic. We can't say enough about this young man. We will use him for our Christmas lights this year. Highly recommend!!!!

Chris from Student Services came to clean my gutters and did an excellent job. I learned he also cleans windows so I hired him to do my windows as well. He offered to do them on the spot and he did a superb job. He was professional, friendly, respectful and just an all-around great young man. Chris started Student Services while he was a college student in order to pay for his education. He recently graduated from college and is now trying to hire other students and grow his business. I highly recommend hiring Student Services for any of your home services needs.

Chris Anderson has been helping me since 2016. He has done many tasks including window washing, gutter cleaning, and hanging my Christmas lights. Chris Anderson is kind and professional. He is beyond reproach. If you are lucky enough to get him as a worker, he will be your go-to helper forever. Call Chris at (916)380-8333 and cross your fingers that Chris has an opening because so many people need a Chris Anderson in their life.

Chris has worked for me three times. The first was three years ago when he washed the windows, cleaned the plantation shutters and cleaned the gutters. He was neat, clean, very efficient and energetic. I really would have been thrilled to adopt him as a grandson! Last year, he did a number of odd jobs, including treating the oak hardwood floors throughout my house. I decided to skip the window washing. The price had increased drastically (from $80 to $145) . I checked the price with 4 professional window washers and they were the same, (altho one quoted me $150!) I hosed the outside and vacuumed the dead flies. So this year when Chris came to do the same work as he had done the first year, I was totally embarrassed. The tracks that the windows slide on were disgustingly dirty. I doubted that he could do a good job. However, I was amazed. They all look brand new! He unplugged a gutter and showed me photos. So professional. I won't wait to have him wash my windows. Once a year for sure. Do hire him. You will no doubt want to adopt him, just like me!

What's in Our Toolbox?

Check out the tools our technicians use to make your home or business shine. We use a variety of professional grade equipment and gear to get the best results while prioritizing safety.

Safety Equipment

Purified Water-Fed Pole Systems

Window Screen Cleaning Equipment

Commercial Grade Christmas Lights

Our safety equipment includes fall protection systems to prevent serious injuries, helmets to protect from bumping our heads, and ladder stabilizers to make working from a ladder as safe as possible. Safety equipment allows us to complete ladder-related tasks like gutter cleaning, solar panel cleaning, and Christmas light installation & removal safely by mitigating the risks of slips and falls.

Our water-fed pole systems pump water through a purifying process, making pure water. This “pure water” is pure H2O, which dries crystal clear, leaving no streaks or residue behind for you to see. Pure water systems avoid mineral deposits (aka hard water spots like you see on your shower door), making your windows and solar panels spotless after our window cleaning and solar panel cleaning service is complete.

We invested in a professional level window screen cleaning machine that uses brushes and water to perfectly clean your window screens. The end result of using this process is window screens that are far cleaner than any other window cleaner could produce with the standard process of cleaning window screens with a rag. Clean window screens are the cherry on top of a thorough window cleaning service. 

You will have the choice to upgrade your Christmas light installation & removal project to include commercial grade lights. Our commercial grade Christmas lights look better and are more reliable than any Christmas lights on the market. With lights these bright, you will stick out like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

FAQs

Gutter Cleaning

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 3 options for gutter cleaning:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? What is your home model? Do you have gutter guards? Do you have a patio cover with gutters or any additional rooms that have gutters, like a casita or a sun room, or is it the base home model? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 3 options for gutter cleaning:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? Do you have gutter guards? Do you have a patio cover with gutters? Is your home a single story or two story home? What is your home’s square footage? Do you have a picture of your home (it will assist in the quoting process)? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

As professionals, we will do a much more thorough job cleaning gutters as a homeowner would. We will even take pictures of our work so that we can provide you with a summary of how dirty your gutters were and any problem areas we saw. Even more importantly, we will do it safely so you don’t have to take any risks by climbing ladders or getting on your roof. If you need to get your gutters cleaned professionally, we would love to help!

By default, if the roof is safely walkable, we work from the roof to limit ladder exposure since most home service workplace injuries are from ladders. If the roof is not safely walkable, we work from a ladder. Doing gutter cleaning since 2015, we know from experience that this is the safest way to get your gutters cleaned.

For your gutter cleaning appointment, we scoop the debris out of your gutters into a bucket and dispose the debris into your yard waste can.

The most popular time of the year to clean gutters is during the Fall and Winter. For the best value, if you or your neighbors have leaves that fall on your property, wait until the leaves fall. For most homes, this will happen sometime around November. Gutter cleaning season will continue during the rainy season until around March. For gutter cleaning, we encourage homeowners to be proactive about cleaning. Get your guters cleaned at the beginning of the season to ensure your gutters are good to go for the rain. For homes with multiple trees, it might be wise to clean them again in the following months to ensure your gutters are draining properly throughout the rainy season. Whenever you would like to get your gutters cleaned, we would love to help you!

Most homes should clean do gutter cleaning once per year after the leaves fall around October-February. If your home is exposed to multiple trees, especially larger ones, you may benefit from more frequent gutter cleanings (semi-annual, tri-annual, or quarterly). All homes should have their gutters cleaned. Neglecting to clean your gutters exposes your home to damage from foundation issues to dry rot to the complete collapse of your gutters. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially in the case of your protecting the functionality of your gutter system.

Most gutter cleaning appointments will be completed in 1-4 hours.

After every gutter cleaning appointment, we review pictures of what the gutters look like with the customer. We will notify you if we encountered anything of concern (ie- a clogged downspout, tree roots growing into the underground drainage, broken roof tiles, damage such as dry rot, etc) or if your gutters are functioning as they should be. After we finish your gutter cleaning, you’ll find any debris we removed from your gutters in your yard waste can so you can see exactly what we removed from your gutters.

Chris [the Owner of Student Services] washed our windows and cleaned our gutters…and more than we asked for. He was conscientious, punctual, and did a very, very thorough job. [Their help is] worth every penny.

To prepare for your gutter cleaning appointment, please do the following:

-Move any items that may be in the way of getting your gutter cleaning done

-Do not park in the driveway

-Close all windows

-Unlock the side gate

We have done hundreds of gutter cleaning appointments since starting the business in 2015. We primarily do single story gutter cleaning but as long as we are able to clean 2nd story gutters, we will do that as well.

We primarily do single story gutter cleaning but as long as we are able to safely clean gutters on your 2nd story, we will do that as well.

We primarily do single story gutter cleaning. We can clean gutters up to 2 stories high.

Older gutters, or gutters that are clogged, have gutter joints/seems that can leak, resulting in an area where drips accumulate and moss can grow.

Moss grow on the north side of roofs because it gets the adequate amunt of shade, moisture, and sunlight. Moss can be removed but it is a matter of time until it grows back. Every roof has moss because every house has a roof on the north side of the home. 

Yes, we can remove debris (moss, leaves, small tree limbs, pine needles, etc) from your roof. The debris will be disposed of via your yard waste can.

We use loppers to trim smaller limbs when they are overhanging the roof. If your tree has larger limbs, it is best to use a professional arborist who can safely remove the limbs while keeping the health of the tree in tact.

If your underground drainage is blocked, it is going to require a rooter company or plumber.  However, more frequently, either the top of your gutter downspout or the gutter downspout itself is clogged. Make sure to try to fix these potential issues before assuming your underground drainage is clogged.

If your underground drainage is blocked, it is going to require a rrooter company or plumber. Tree roots can grow into the underground drainage as the roots will grow towards any source of water, which is exactly what the underground drainage is. Alternatively, large amounts of gutter debris can clog underground drainage from draining properly.

Gutter downspouts can be clogged by different types of debris. Moss, roof runoff (“roof sand”), leaves, or a mixture of all of the above clog people’s gutters. When gutters clog, water accumulates in the gutter, filling the gutters to the top with water. Once the water fills the gutter, it starts to overflow over the gutters.

When gutters clog, water accumulates in the gutter, filling the gutters to the top with water. Once the water fills the gutter, it starts to overflow over the gutters.

We would not recommend installing gutters guards on your home. The quality of gutter guards varies so much. Gutter guards fall short for various reasons, the mesh kind gets clogged by granules that plug the mesh and become useless overtime and gutter guards with very wide gaps allow everythig through which plugs your gutters unde the guards up with debris. We offer a product, the Gutter Stick downspout filter, which is a far superior solution than gutter guards. Why the Gutter Stick is so ingenious is it is the best design for a gutter guard with small holes for water to drain into. Most importantly, the Gutter Stick downspout filter is concentrated on the most important part of your gutter, your downspout which is the one component that drains water out of the gutter. If you are considering gutter guards, we would love to give you a second opinion before you spend upwards of thousands of dollars on a product that overpromises and underdelivers.

The debris that is removed from your gutters or off of your roof is disposed of via your yard waste can. Alternatively, we can dispose of the debris by taking it to another debris disposal site.

Yes, we have all of the equipment to clean your gutters thoroughly and safely.

We use safety equipment including a helmet, fall protection equipment including a harness & lanyard, a ladder with a ladder stabilizer, a bucket to scoop and remove debris from your gutters, and a hose to test your gutter downspouts.

The cost of gutter cleaning is based on several factors including the number of stories the building is that we are servicing, the number of helpers that are needed to do the task, the home model we are servicing (for residents in 55+ active living retirement communities), the linear feet of gutters that are being cleaned, if the building has gutter guards or not, the number of downspout filters that are being installed, and the distance we have to drive to do the task.

Window Cleaning

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 4 options for window cleaning:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? What is your home model? Do you have a sun room or any additional rooms that have windows, like a casita, or is it the base home model? Do you have a garage door with windows? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 4 options for window cleaning:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? Is your home a single story or two story home? How many individual window panes do you have (a window with a track is usually made up of 2 separate window panes- one window pane that moves on the track and one window pane that is stationary)? You can also take a picture of the 4 sides of your homes so all windows and visible and I’ll count them myself. Do you have a garage door with windows? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

As professionals, we will do a much more thorough job cleaning windows as a homeowner would. Using your hose or WIndex to clean your windows will help but your windows will never look as clean as they would if we cleaned them with our professional grade tools. Further, we will get the job done in a much more timely manner than you would if you tried to clean them as thoroughly as we will. We will even take a walkaround with you to show our work and give you a chance to double check our work to ensure that you are satisfied. Even more importantly, we will do it safely so you don’t have to take any risks by climbing ladders or getting on your roof. If you need to get your windows cleaned professionally, we would love to help!

A pure water window cleaning system takes in your hose water, filters out the dissolved solids that would leave hard water spots via a waste hose, uses a brush to rub dirt off of the glass, and rinses the window with pure H2O, leaving your windows without hard water spots or squeegee streaks.

Using a pure water window cleaning system allows us to wash the outside window frames in addition to leaving your window glass spotless. Further, investing in water-fed pole technology allows us to clean windows up to 7 stories from the safety of the ground.

The water will evaporate and leave your windows looking clear after your window cleaning appointment.

An example of hard water spots are those little white circles on your glass shower door. Hard water spots result because of dissolved solids like minerals, fluoride, calcium, chlorine, etc that are dissolved in water. When the water evaporates, those dissolved solids are left behind as hard water spots. Fortunately, the water purification technology we use for window cleaning filters out the dissolved solids in the water we clean with, eliminating the possibility of leaving hard water spots, leaving your windows spotless.

Foggy windows are the result of a broken window seal. When we do your window cleaning, we will identify if any of your windows have a broken seal and will notify you if that is the case. Primarily, a foggy window is an eyesore since it blocks your beautiful view. If you are the original homeowner or had the window that turned foggy installed less than X number of years ago, it may be covered under your warranty. If you have a foggy window, call your window company to see if they will replace it. Doing so may save you thousands in window replacement costs.

The most popular time of the year to clean windows is during the Spring and Summer. Most homeowners want to get their windows cleaned after the rainy season is done or before the rainy season starts. That means the most popular times to clean windows starts around April, peaks in the Summer around June and July, and continues into August. It can also be a great value to clean your windows after the fire season when there is a bunch of ash and dust on your windows and bug screens. Whenever you would like to get your windows cleaned, we would love to help you!

Doing exterior window cleaning twice per year will make your windows look beautiful year round. If you live in an area with construction occurring, your windows will look better with more frequent exterior window cleanings (tri-annual or quarterly). Your exterior windows are going to accumulate the large majority of the dirt so you can get away with cleaning your interior windows less frequently than twice per year. Unless your kids leave fingerprints or your dog leaves nose marks, you should be able to have beautiful windows with only a once a year interior window cleaning.

Most window cleaning appointments will be completed in 1.5-6 hours.

Heads up this great neighborhood business. [Student Services] showed up on time and was very efficient. Our windows, interior and exterior, needed a good cleaning as well as the screens and all the tracks. Everything is now sparkling clean! [Student Services] offers 3 service tiers so we were able to pick one to suit our needs and budget. Highly recommend!

To prepare for your window cleaning appointment, please do the following:

-Move any furniture or items that may be in the way of getting your window cleaning done

-Do not park in the driveway

-Take window screens off

-Close and lock all windows

-Unlock the side gate

A window pane is one piece of glass. That means a window with a track where one side moves back and forth while one side is stationary is usually made up of 2 window panes.

You are welcome to remove your screens before we clean your windows. However, all of our window cleaning quotes includes removing and reinstalling your window screens.

We have done hundreds of window cleaning appointments since starting the business in 2015. 

We primarily do single story window cleaning but as long as we are able to safely clean windows on your 2nd story, we will do that as well.

We primarily do single story window cleaning. We can clean windows up to 7 stories high.

We provide 4 default options for window cleaning as we know from experience that it meets the needs and budgets of the large majority of our customers. If you need a different level of detail done, we are happy to accommodate and provide a customized option for you.

On the exterior of your windows, we will use a brush to agitate the dirt off of your windows and pure water to rinse them clean. It is like erasing all of the dirt, bird poop, and weathered frame residue off of your windows. On your interior windows, we will use a mixture of purified water, cleaning vinegar, and soap.

The cost of window cleaning is based on several factors including if we have to use a ladder for the task, the number of stories the building is that we are servicing, the number of helpers that are needed to do the task, the home model we are servicing (for residents in 55+ active living retirement communities), the number of window panes that are being cleaned, and the distance we have to drive to do the task.

As professionals, we will do a much more thorough job cleaning solar panels as a homeowner would. Using your hose to clean your solar panels will help but your solar panels will never be as clean as they would if we cleaned them with our professional grade tools. We will even take pictures of our work so that we can provide you with a summary of how your solar panels are looking. Even more importantly, we will do it safely so you don’t have to take any risks by climbing ladders or getting on your roof. If you need to get your solar panels cleaned professionally, we would love to help!As professionals, we will do a much more thorough job cleaning solar panels as a homeowner would.

A pure water solar panel cleaning system takes in your hose water, filters out the dissolved solids that would leave hard water spots via a waste hose, uses a brush to rub dirt off of the solar panel, and rinses the solar panel with pure H2O, leaving your solar panels without hard water spots or squeegee streaks.

The most popular time of the year to clean solar panels is during the Spring and Summer. Most homeowners want to get their solar panels cleaned after the rainy season is done or before the rainy season starts. That means the most popular times to clean solar panels starts around April, peaks in the Summer around June and July, and continues into August. It can also be a great value to clean your solar panels after the fire season when there is a bunch of ash and dust on your solar panels. Whenever you would like to get your solar panels cleaned, we would love to help you! 

Doing solar panel cleaning once per year will result in increased power output from your solar system. If you live in an area with construction occurring, your solar panels will perform better with more frequent cleanings (semi-annual, tri-annual, or quarterly)

If you live in the City of Roseville and have Roseville electric, cleaning your solar panels won’t always make financial since Roseville Electric has the lowest electric rates in the entire state of California. However, California has some of the highest electric rates in the entire USA. So if you have another electric utility provider, especially PG&E, doing solar panel cleaning will almost always make financial sense.

Waiting for the rain to come to clean your solar panels will help but your solar panels will never be as clean as they would if we cleaned them with our professional grade tools. The best example of this is washing your car. Just having your car sit in the rain will never fully wash your vehicle. What really cleans your vehicle is aggetating the dirt with a sponge and rinsing the dirt off with water. With our professional tools, we will clean your solar panels much more thoroughly than just rain would. If you need to get your solar panels cleaned professionally, we would love to help! 

Using your hose to clean your solar panels will help but your solar panels will never be as clean as they would if we cleaned them with our professional grade tools. The best example of this is washing your car. Just spraying your car down with a hose will never fully wash your vehicle. What really cleans your vehicle is aggetating the dirt with a sponge and rinsing the dirt off with water. Even worse, the water in your hose has dissolved minerals in it. Those minerals will result in hard water spots like can be seen on a shower glass door or some windows that get sprayed by sprinklers. Those hard water spots stain your solar panels, affecting the amount of power they can generate. With our professional tools, we will clean your solar panels much more thoroughly than spraying it with a hose would. If you need to get your solar panels cleaned professionally, we would love to help! 

Most solar panel cleaning appointments will be completed in 1-2 hours.

I highly recommend Student Services! Chris [the Owner of Student Services] came to my house yesterday to clean my solar panels as well as all of my windows (inside and out), including the screens. With the package I paid for he also cleaned the bathroom mirrors and dusted all of the ceiling fans. He did a fantastic job and is very professional. If you are looking for window or solar panel cleaning, call him!

To prepare for your solar panel cleaning appointment, please do the following:

-Turn off your solar system

-Do not park in the driveway

-Unlock the side gate

We have done dozens of solar panel cleaning appointments since investing in professional level equipment and adding solar panel cleaning as a service in 2019.

We primarily do single story solar panel cleaning but as long as we are able to safely clean solar panels on your 2nd story, we will do that as well.

We primarily do single story solar panel cleaning. We can clean solar panels up to 2 stories high.

Yes, we have all of the equipment to clean your solar panels thoroughly and safely.

We use safety equipment including a helmet, fall protection equipment including a harness & lanyard, a ladder with a ladder stabilizer, a hose to access the water, a water purification system to use only pure water to clean your solar panels.

The cost of solar panel cleaning is based on several factors including if we have to use a ladder for the task, the number of stories the building is that we are servicing, the number of helpers that are needed to do the task, the home model we are servicing (for residents in 55+ active living retirement communities), the number of solar panels that are being cleaned, and the distance we have to drive to do the task.

Christmas Lights

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 3 options for Christmas lights:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? What is your home model? Do you have Christmas lights or would you like Student Services to provide the Christmas lights and other equipment (timers, extension cords, clips, etc.)? Where would you like Christmas lights? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

Provide the following info to (916) 380-8333 or StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com and we will respond with your 3 options for Christmas lights:

What is your first name, last name, and email? What is your address? Do you have Christmas lights or would you like Student Services to provide the Christmas lights and other equipment (timers, extension cords, clips, etc.)? Where would you like Christmas lights and how many linear feet of lights need to be hung? Is your home a single story or two story home? Do you have a picture of your home (it will assist in the quoting process)? Do weekdays or weekends work best for you?

Yes, we provide multiple service tier options to best fit your situation. We can either use our Christmas lights or your Christmas lights. You will have a few different options of styles of lights you can choose from.

Cup hooks are what the Christmas lights attach to when Student Services does your Christmas light installation. Cup hooks can usually attach to the wooden facia near your gutters in a way where they can not be seen from the street, unlike plastic gutter clips.

Most Christmas light installation appointments will be completed in 1.5-6 hours. Most Christmas light removal appointments are completed in 1-2 hours.

Customers start booking Christmas light appointments in October. Christmas light installation starts in November. Since most people wait to install their Christmas lights until after Thanksgiving, you are more likely to get your Christmas lights installed if you have an appointment before November 27.

We get completely booked during the weeks after Thanksgiving to install Christmas lights. The earlier you book, the more likely we can install your Christmas lights. Some HOAs like Sun City Lincoln Hills have a rule of thumb of installing Christmas lights anytime after November 15th.

Payment is collected after we have installed your Christmas lights. Coming back to remove them is included in the original payment so nothing is due upon Christmas light removal. 

I had [Student Services] at my home today installing Christmas lights. I must say I was totally impressed with Chris [the Owner of Student Services], he was polite on time. He is a great guy that does a great job, I highly recommend him.

To prepare for your Christmas light appointment, please do the following:

-Move any items that may be in the way of getting your Christmas lights done

-Take out any lights from storage

-Lay the lights outside below where you want them to be hung

-Have any extension cords, timers, and clips (if applicable) ready to use If we have to retrieve or put back any of the equipment, we will charge 29 base + 89/hour.

We have done hundreds of Christmas light appointments since starting the business in 2015. We primarily do single story Christmas lights but as long as we are able to safely install them on 2nd story homes, we will do that as well.

Yes, we have all of the equipment to install Christmas lights for you safely. We can either install the equipment that we provide or install the equipment you provide for us.

We use safety equipment including a helmet, fall protection equipment including a harness & lanyard, a ladder with a ladder stabilizer, light sensing timers to turn on the Christmas lights once it gets dark, commercial grade Christmas lights, extension cords to plug in the lights, and tie wraps to hide the cords.

The cup hooks will be installed in such a way where they are not onviously visible. They can usually be screwed into the inside of the wooden facia board near the gutters and going up the peaks of the home. Installing permanent cup hooks is a more discrete way of attaching Christmas lights to your home than using plastic clips?

The cost of Christmas light installation & removal is based on several factors including the number of stories the building is that we are servicing, the number of helpers that are needed to do the task, the home model we are servicing (for residents in 55+ active living retirement communities), the linear feet of Christmas lights that are being installed and removed, and the distance we have to drive to do the task.

This year, we have invested in commercial grade lights. This new investment upgrades our current selection and provides a wider array of colors of lights. We have colors including clear, white, red, green, blue, and multicolor. Our commercial grade lights will even provide you with the ability to customize the pattern of the lights so you can have your choice of how your lights will look. Our new-and-improved selection of lights also comes with a promise that we will fix any issues you are having with the equipment. During any time of the season, we will come back and service the lights, fix any issues, and replace any faulty equipment. We would love to help you with your Christmas light needs this coming holiday season!

With our commercial grade lights, we can customize your display to match the color pattern for any holiday or time of year worthy of recognition. Besides Christmas, some times of year that we can use our commercial grade lights to commemorate include Easter, Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or Pride Month.

Maintenance Plan

No, we need to earn your business.

We provide a few options that we know from experience meet the needs and budgets of our customers. We are happy to customize a maintenance plan to fit your home’s needs as well.

We give our maintenance plan customers year round security in knowing their gutters, windows, solar panels, and Christmas lights are being taken care of. Our maintenance plan customers enjoy benefits like priority booking, a 12 hour response window, a 7 day appointment window, and free callbacks to address anything.

Additional Services

Besides our 4 primary services (gutter cleaning, window cleaning, solar panel cleaning, and Christmas lights), we can also do services such as replacing air filters & smoke alarm batteries, mirror cleaning, ceiling fan cleaning, shutter & blind cleaning, siding cleaning, dump runs, moving items, custom outdoor lighting, and yard work (weeding, trimming, blowing, hedging, raking). In general, as long as our insurance covers the task and we can perform the task safely and efficiently, we will try to help.

A few services outside of our line of scope are handyman-type tasks such as plumbing, electrical, pressure washing, house washing, roof washing, dryer vent cleaning, or repairing fences. Our insurance also does not cover tree trimming, call an arborist for tree care instead. Pool or pond cleaning can be done by a pool cleaning company. We cannot perform pest control as specific licenses are required for that task. To protect our health, we do not spray weeds. to protect our safety, even though we use fall protection equipment, we do not perform tasks above 2 stories. We do not have the equipment for lawnmowing, contact a landscaper instead. Long distance moving is going to require a moving company. In-home care should be done by a caretaker or in-home care company. House cleaning should be performed by a maid, house cleaning, or in-home care company.

We plan on adding services such as pressure washing, house washing, roof washing, and dryer vent cleaning in the future.

Safety

Student Services has a plethora of safety equipment to prioritize employee safety. Depending on the scope of the project, we use ladder stabilizers, helmets, fall protection equipment including slip-resistant roofing shoes, slip-resistant roofing shorts, harnesses and lanyards.

By default, if the roof is safely walkable, we work from the roof to limit ladder exposure since most home service workplace injuries are from ladders. If the roof is not safely walkable, we work from a ladder.

If it is safe for us to get the job done, we will work. If it is unsafe, we will reschedule for when it is safer to work.

Our first line of defense is the use of safety equipment that helps us to prevent falls like roofing shoes, slip resistant roofing shorts, and other equipment that adds friction to decrease the likelihood of slipping and falling. Further, we have roof safety equipment including the ability to tie off to a fall prevention mechanism using a harness and lanyard. We also wear a helmet as a last resort for fall protection.

All employees are encouraged to wear a helmet if climbing a ladder. When their ladder is positioned in a non-hardscaped area, like bark, they are trained to jump on the bottom rung to secure the ladder in place, as recommended to us by a customer who was a former fireman. When a ladder is positioned on a roof, the ladder stabilizer helps to protect the customers’ gutters are well as increase ladder safety for our employees. 

Insurance

Yes, Student Services has a $1 million General Liability Insurance Policy. We have never had to use it but we want to make sure our customers are covered in case we ever do have to use it.

Yes, Student Services has Workers Compensation Insurance. We have never had to use it but we want to make sure our employees are covered in case we ever do have to use it.

Student Services was started by a then college freshman, Chris Anderson, as a way to pay for his college education. Although he, and other Student Services empoyees and interns have attended or currently attend local colleges and universities, we are not directly involved with any of these schools.

We specialize in tasks that are related to home maintenance which require a ladder like gutter cleaning, window cleaning, solar panel cleaning, and Christmas lights.

Student Services works in Sun City Lincoln Hills on Wednesday’s, Friday’s, and Sunday’s. Student Services works in Sun City Roseville on Tuesday’s and Saturday’s. Student Services works in other communities on Thursday’s. If another day of the week works best for you, we will try to accommodate.

We can usually book an appointment within one or two weeks. Christmas light appointents are encouraged to schedule earlier than later as it is our busiest time of the year.

We will reply with a quote as soon as we can. Usually a quote is delivered the same day.

Quotes are given remotely after a few pieces of info in regards to the service we are going to be doing are collected. Quotes are either delivered via text or email so you can read the description of the your service options.

[Student Services] were on time (early even) and both [gutter cleaning technicians] went right to work on their respective tasks of gutter cleaning and window cleaning. I was pleased with not only the quality of their service but also the congeniality of these young men. I highly recommend them. They are my ‘Home Heroes’!​

Chris showed up right on time – to the minute. He took the time and explained what I could expect with their window washing service. My windows look great. I’m looking forward to Student Services making my home beautiful this Christmas with their Christmas lights service. I highly recommend Student Services

I was very impressed with Chris’ responsiveness and professionalism! He responded quickly to my inquiry, quickly assessed he situation and provided a reasonable price-range for the service I requested. Nice guy working on growing his business!

I am glad I used Student Services to help clean my gutters and install my Christmas lights. My husband is getting older and I don’t want him to climb ladders anymore. I felt secure in hiring Student Services knowing that they have a $1 million general liability insurance policy and workers’ compensation insurance. Even more than providing me with a sense of security, they did a wonderful job helping my husband and I.

Chris really impressed me with his professionalism and his businesslike approach to gutter cleaning.  He arrived with a mask on which I appreciated, and took his time to thoroughly clean our gutters. Then he cleaned up thoroughly after himself before leaving. Our job was very difficult because we have miles and miles of gutters it seems, and they were full of olives and olive leaves. Not an easy job. I would definately recommend him. His specialty is over 55 senior communities, but he was willing to do our home and did a great job.

 

We just had our windows done by Student Services and WOW! What a difference! Chris was professional, thorough, and did an exceptional job. He practiced social distancing and wore a mask the entire time he was in our home. I was impressed with the fact that they use a special filtration system so you don’t get calcium or hard water spots on your windows. 5 stars from me!

I’ve worked with Chris, the owner of Student Services, and I can highly recommend him and his company. He is honest, hardworking, and eager to help.

As a Realtor I only want to work with the best of the best – look no further, [Student Services] are the best! Thorough job and great customer service.

We start our first appointment of the day between 7:30-8:30 am, usually at 8 am. 

We finish before or near sunset when it is too dark to continue safely. 

We love dogs. We even keep bones in our trucks to give to dogs we meet, aslong as the owner says it is okay. To keep your dog safe, please keep your dog inside as most services we do require opening the side gate.

We are hiring for 2 roles: Sales & Marketing Associate and Field Service Technician. If you are interested in a position, please contact Chris Anderson at (916) 380-8333 or email us at StudentOddJobServices@gmail.com

We have been safely doing home services since 2015. 

The cost of each service is based on several factors including what service is being done, if we have to use a ladder for the task, the number of stories the building is that we are servicing, the number of helpers that are needed to do the task, the home model we are servicing (for residents in 55+ active living retirement communities), the linear feet of gutters that are being cleaned (for gutter cleaning), the number of window panes that are being cleaned (for window cleaning), the number of solar panels that are being cleaned (for solar panel cleaning), the linear feet of Christmas lights that are being installed and removed (for Christmas lights), and the distance we have to drive to do the task.

The best ways to support us is to hire us to do your home services, refer us to your friends and neighbors who need a hand, refer us to your realtor, landlord, property manager who need a trustworthy company to call on, or leave us a review on Google, Nextdoor, Facebook, or Yelp.

Our core services (gutter cleaning, window cleaning, solar panel cleaning, or Christmas lights) are quoted at a flat rate. Additional services are quoted for a base service call fee + an hourly rate.

Hourly rates vary depending on if the task is a ladder-related odd job, non-ladder-related odd job, or yard work task.

The first part of getting your task done will be when the technician knocks at your door. They will introduce themselves, confirm what task they are doing, ask if you can keep your pets inside if you have them, and they will get to work. If they have questions, they will ask and clarify. Once the task is done, they will provide you with a few materials like extra business cards incase your neighbors or friends need a hand with a task. They will show you their work with pictures of your clean gutters or solar panels. Before we get paid, they will make sure you are happy with how your appointment went. Whatever your task is, we would love to help you with it!
