outdoor-lightsWhen the cool temperatures give way to nice warm weather and longer days, many of us in the Everett area like to take advantage of the change and spend a little extra time outside. And maybe after a hike or a day out on the lake you just haven’t gotten your fill and you find yourself wanting to take in the cool evening air by enjoying dinner outside or maybe wrapping up your night with a shared drink on the back patio. This can be a little less enjoyable if you can’t see anything.

Outdoor lighting may not seem important until you are trying to dig out that old lantern and hoping that the batteries haven’t corroded inside of it.

Lastly, there are a couple of things found to be very effective in keeping the air in your home clean and safe. First, ductwork collects dust, dirt and pollen and over time can become a breeding ground for mold, mildew and germs that can irritate allergies and create odors. Annual duct cleaning can prevent the spread of these pollutants in your home. Second, indoor air quality products actually prevent these contaminants from getting there in the first place. They work to continuously destroy cold and flu viruses and other pollutants both in the air and on surfaces before they have a chance to spread. If our staff can answer any questions about these ways to keep your home safe, please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

 

Chris Baisch
