Service Champions technician Carlo keeps chicken wire on hand when he
goes to a job.
“We work in all kinds of places in houses – attics, openings for pipes

HVAC system was going in,” Carlo explained. “The client had come concerns

Still, Carlo offered to put some chicken wire in place to make sure no
animals were trespassing inside.
The homeowner was happy for the offer, but surprised Carlo had chicken

had been nesting in their attic.”
The client was relieved to have the access point blocked and was thankful
that Carlo was so handy with chicken wire.
Nice job Carlo! That’s another Good Deed For Free!
