Prep Your Home for the Holidays & Guests
with Free Services & Showerheads

Let SCV Water help you prepare your home for the holidays and your out-of-town guests! SCV Water has partnered with WaterWise Consulting, Inc. to provide Santa Clarita residents with free Home Water Use Check-ups that will look at outdoor and indoor water use. They will typically take about one hour and will check for leaks and help you install water-saving devices such as faucet aerators and high-efficiency showerheads. You'll also learn about other things you can do to save a little blue (water) and a little green (money).

For a limited time only, WaterWise will be offering free Waterhawk state-of-the-art high-efficiency showerheads - a $50 value - and installation to customers that participate in the Water Check-up program. Smart showerheads let you know when the temperature is right so you know when to jump in the shower, helping you save energy and water.
Call to schedule your free checkup. 888-987-9473

Book your One-day Concrete Floor Coating Before Rains make for Slippery Surfaces

Are you looking to improve and enhance the look, feel and safety of your home's patio, walkways, driveway and garage floor? ALLBRiGHT Concrete Coatings offers the most-advanced concrete floor coating technologies available on the market. With products designed for ultimate durability and style, they offer a wide variety of colors and finishes to exactly meet your needs.

Most floor coatings are water-based epoxy systems that harden with time and can become brittle in as little as two years, leading to cracks and chips in your floor. ALLBRiGHT Concrete Coatings's durable polyurea floor systems offer the absolute best in form and function and will provide decades of value and durability. Their polyurea floor coatings are four-times stronger than epoxy and will add functionality and safety to any concrete surface. On-site estimates are free.

One Good Idea Launches Another
The Beginnings of Clean It Forward

For the past six years, the crew at Surface Busters has been inspired by ALLBRiGHT, its Painting Happiness team and their Chief Solutionist Josh Abramson - the founder of Paint It Forward. In celebration of Surface Busters's two-year anniversary, they've decided take a page out of the ALLBRiGHT book and Clean It Forward!

Do you know a non-profit organization, family or individual in need of deep-cleaning services - but can't afford it? Surface Busters wants to treat a family, school or local organization with up to $3,000 in free hard-surface cleaning and restoration services. The nomination process is easy! Just log on and click "Clean-It-Forward" to get started!

Prepare for Water Damage Before it Happens
Approximately 14,000 people each day experience water damage to their home or office. If you don't address it quickly, the problem can get worse - mold sets in fast. The best solution? Prevention! Check for leaks regularly both inside and around the exterior of your property. A small drip today could be a big issue tomorrow.

And, if the worst does happen? Paul Davis Restoration Santa Clarita immediately addresses, assesses and fixes water damage while also assisting with insurance claims. They'll (Literally!) put your life back together, from cleaning and restoring clothes, furniture, documents and more to replacing your pieces right where they found them once restoration is complete.

There once was a time in SCV lore
when the best bet for holiday
supplies was a big-box store.
But today brings choice
and high-end, too -
so that when Santa comes calling
you don't have to boo-hoo.

Ok, maybe we aren't going to win any poetry contests - but these local spots take all the awards for the best holiday displays and options around!

Don't DIY the LED
Holiday light displays are one of the high"lights" of the season, but they can be dangerous to install yourself. (Cue sound of ladder falling in three, two, one...). Outsource the install and bring joy to everyone in the neighborhood by calling a pro.

Sometimes, you just need something new - and pretty. Here are November's top pretty picks.

The Color you Want
Navy has topped many a "color of the year" list - but no shade of this versatile hue has us as captivated as "Oxford Navy" Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. Oxford Navy is an inky, traditional navy blue that evokes the strong, august blue of academic insignia and fountain pens, as well as the rich pigment indigo blue so synonymous with traditional Indian block printing. Pick up your cans, as well as workshops on best-use practices for Chalk Paint and more, at Refined Vintage Boutique.

Handmade Leather Furniture
Handmade in America, Omnia leather furniture brings a whole new meaning to personalized comfort, but it's the rich styling that catches our eye every time. With over 400 luxurious leathers and 150 furniture styles from which to choose, pretty options - and meticulous craftsmanship - abound.

A Master Turned into a Retreat
Improved with the addition of a shiplap accent wall, dark moody colors, lush bedding, light-toned grand furniture and a fun rug, this master isn't just pretty - it's pretty special.
