[Zug] Apartment repair work - who to hire?

So I’m moving out of my crib and I need someone to come by and take care of a few basics. Mostly just patching up the wall where either a) we drilled holes into it for pictures or b) my dog chewed the corners. Maybe some sort of repair work on the parket floor where a few small divots have happened over the last 6 years, though I’m undecided on that. I just need to bring the place back into reasonable shape considering 6 years of normal use, rather than 6 years of Labrador and Danish fiancée use (none of it was my fault, of course - all my beer bottles went out the window).

Any ideas on who to contact for that sort of thing in Zug?

It's a 5 minute DIY job, what you need is a can of 'Spachtelmasse' from any supermarket with construction goods department (Migros Do It, Coop BH, Bauhaus, etc)

Write it off as traces from normal use, worst case claim off your insurance if landlord picks on it

A proper repair would probably involve sanding parquet in the whole room, which would be too much for a renter's budget but also not 100% your responsibility too

Meh. It’s easy enough to fill in the holes, but I’m not so sure about the damaged corners of the walls...
