Local veteran and entrepreneur Brian Winton is launching his new house care business, TruBlue of Chattanooga. 

TruBlue is a full-service company that provides handyman, house cleaning, emergency repairs, yard/lawn care and seasonal services for busy families, seniors and anyone who want the comforts of their own home without worrying about critical property maintenance. TruBlue of Chattanooga serves Chattanooga, Hixson, Soddy Daisy, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Red Bank, North Chattanooga and the surrounding areas.  

“There are quite a few fly-by-night handyman services in this area, but I saw a need for a professional company that was bonded and insured and had trusted, background-checked employees and a commitment to quality," said Mr. Winton. "TruBlue is a locally-owned and operated company, but we are backed by an experienced, national franchise, and you can trust us to help with your handyman projects, home care, maid services, lawn care and other house projects." 

To assist those with ongoing home care needs or who want to take property management off their plates entirely, TruBlue has a monthly House Care Plus program, which enables clients to hire TruBlue to provide regular, monthly maintenance. TruBlue also works with homeowners, realtors and rental property owners who need to quickly get homes move-in ready and keep them maintained and has commercial services for business clients. 

Mr. Winton served in the United States Air Force and then worked at FedEx Express as a courier and a team leader for more than 24 years. He has also been a youth leader for the last 20 years, including service as a youth pastor. Mr. Winton is launching this business with the support of his wife, Gail, their three daughters, Sidney, Amber and Peyton, and their two grand-daughters, Kennedy and Kinley. 

“I was looking for a change and, after months of consideration, I went to the TruBlue corporate office to meet the team and learn about the franchise," said Mr. Winton. "I was impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the TruBlue franchise itself. Last year, my 78-year-old mother fell and broke her hip. I have family, but not close by, so I was the one who needed to help her make repairs to the house. That got me thinking, if I hadn’t been there, who could we have trusted to come in and take care of all of that for her? I want TruBlue to be the resource others can turn to when they need help, whether it’s for regular maintenance or a one-time repair.” 

All TruBlue employees are licensed, bonded and insured. To learn more about TruBlue of Chattanooga, call 541-2703, email BWinton@TruBlueHouseCare.com or visit https://www.trubluehousecare.com/chattanooga/
