Flat Rate Home Services Helps Flush Breast Cancer One Call at a Time

Flat Rate Home Services Kicks Off Pink Truck Month to Benefit Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition

New Berlin, WI, September 26, 2016: Flat Rate Home Services, a third-generation family run company has
partnered with Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition (WBCC). The New Berlin-based home services company will run its “Flushing Breast Cancer…One Call at a Time” campaign during the month of October – with 10% of all Pink Truck services going directly to WBCC.

Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Truck

Call 414-258- 7711 and ask for the Pink Truck!

“My father, Les, and I chose to support WBCC partly because of their emphasis on breast cancer prevention through environmental awareness. Through extensive research, WBCC and its community partners have ‘examined the effects of environmental exposures that may predispose a woman to breast cancer. We know prevention and early detection saves lives, and the work of WBCC is commendable in both of those areas,” said Ryan Gumieny, co-owner of Flat Rate Home Services.

Also, the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition educates through informational materials and research summaries.

Their collaboration with volunteers, researchers and policymakers have led to legislation, and their advocacy keeps issues related to breast cancer at the forefront of Wisconsin politics.

Flat Rate’s month-long campaign will feature a pink-wrapped service truck and employees outfitted with slogan t-shirts. Customers requesting the pink truck for any plumbing, drain cleaning or bathroom remodeling service provided by Flat Rate Home Services can do so online or call 414-258-7711.

“Simply ask for the Pink Truck!”

Toilet Technology

Every so often, you come across an innovation so mind-blowingly convenient and it makes you think, “How did I ever live without this?”

 I imagine the first people with indoor toilet felt this way, or better yet, the first users of a flushing toilet.  But while we have grown complacent in our toilet technology, others have not. There are gadgets and sensors and buttons galore for the toilets of the future.  After reading about some of the latest technology, you may want to upgrade.

Flush Cleaning Technology

No one enjoys scrubbing the toilet.  I’m sure, at one time or another, we’ve all thought how perfect it would be if our toilets could just clean themselves. Well, now they can.  With flush cleaning technology, the flush is so powerful that it not only gets rid of waste, but also cleans your toilet. That’s right, every time you flush, you get a clean toilet.

Toilet Lighting

No need to leave a light on in the bathroom because there are now toilet lights. From lighting in the bowl that changes color to motion sensors that control when the lights go on and off to built-in lights on the toilet, your night light “days” will be over with this toilet technology.

Massaging Seats

Comfort is important to all of us, no matter which room of the house we’re talking about – hence, the cushioned toilet seats we’ve all seen before.  But now, there are massaging toilet seats.  Made to be therapeutic, the massaging toilet seat is believed to relax you while helping you go to the bathroom.

 If you’re interested in finding out the latest toilet technology, our knowledgeable plumbers are glad to help! Contact Flat Rate Home Services today for all your plumbing needs!

“Knowing that this hard-working family has lived in rentals their entire lives makes this home all the more special for them, and for us”, added Ryan.

Flat Rate Home Services will be installing all the drain and vent piping to all of the home’s bathrooms and plumbing fixtures, along with running entirely new water piping to all of the fixtures.  The Waukesha plumbing company will be providing a new hot water heater, laundry sink, bathtub and shower module to the home as well.  In addition, piping will be added for two outdoor lawn faucets.

Flat Rate Helps Stuff the Bus

Flat Rate Home Services Helps Donate Food for the Holidays to Feed Hungry Families in Wisconsin

Milwaukee, WI, November 17, 2015:   For the second year in a row, as part of their Giving Back program, Flat Rate Home Services is teaming up with local businesses to sponsor “Stuff the Bus”, a food drive started by 99.1FM to benefit Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.  In addition to sponsoring and donating 50 turkeys to this annual event, the plumbing, heating and cooling company will be donating an additional 50 turkeys through their website, www.flatratehomeservices.com.

Flat Rate donates to Feeding America through Stuff the bus

Flat Rate general manager, AJ, and family, deliver turkeys to Feeding America.

“We know how important Feeding America is for families.  Knowing we helped a parent put food on the table for their family warmed our hearts so much that we wanted to continue giving through our website as well.” AJ Fink, General Manager, Flat Rate Home Services

For the past 16 years, the local radio station broadcasts live and urges their listeners to come donate food in effort to literally stuff a bus with non-perishable food items.  This year’s event will be held on Wednesday, November 25th from 6am-6pm at Pick ‘N Save in Brookfield (15170 W. Greenfield).  If you are unable to make this year’s event, donations can be made online via 99.1FM or Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin’s websites.

According to “Hunger in Our Community 2014”, of those served by Feeding America, 74% of households chose between paying for food and paying for utilities, 67% of households chose between paying for food and paying for medicine or medical care and 67% of households chose between paying for food and paying their rent or mortgage.

“When I heard Feeding America’s statistics on the people in our communities who are hungry, I was shocked. These are our neighbors – the ones who get up and go to work or school every day.  It’s our honor to help,” added AJ.

In furtherance of their support of 99.1FM, Flat Rate Home Services has donated a 40 gallon, gas residential natural draft Bradford White water heater that will be available on the radio station’s ‘Get My Perks’ page.

To enter to win Flat Rate Home Services’ Turkey Giveaway, log on to www.flatratehomeservices.com and click on the turkey.  Enter your name, address, phone number and email address.  All entries must be received by noon on Wednesday, November25th, 2015.
