Default Help, business name needed !

Hi,
On a brighter note, i'm in the process of starting up my own painting and decorating business to run side by side with the career as a fireman, one slight problem, i cannot think of a decent name for the business, i've had a few ideas but not too sure on them, can you come up with a name !
I thought of 'Touched Up' but thought that some people may get the wrong idea or be offended, thought of 'Brushed & Rolled' but again, not too sure.... please help !!!

Big Al.

You could take your business cards to any fire fighting call outs you get - or would that be a little insensitive?

I like the lawnmower man's van round here "Papamower Man"
