On Monday, the online retailer announced the expansion of their Home Services to Richmond and 19 other cities, allowing customers to request services for their homes from everything to house cleaning to lawn work to computer repair.

According to the press release from Amazon, people can now search over 1,200 unique services in over 60 professions.

Amazon Home Services features handpicked pros offering upfront pricing on these services. Local service providers opt-in to where they operate and the services they provide. Customers purchasing items on Amazon that require assembly or installation can include the service as part of their checkout process, or they can read reviews and schedule services directly at www.amazon.com/services.
