Owner, Perfect Power Wash
None of us wants to see dark blotches of mold or mildew ringing bathroom faucets, growing on basement carpets, or lining window frames. In substantial quantities, mold and mildew are both ugly and smelly.
But aesthetics aside, did you know their presence can be unhealthy, too?
Even otherwise vigorous people can experience nasal congestion, coughing, wheezing, or throat, eye, and skin irritation when they inhale or touch mold or mildew. And for folks suffering from allergies, compromised immune systems, or lung ailments, there is an increased risk of developing lung infections.
It is impossible to get rid of every mold spore in your home&mdas ...

By Lee Franciscus
Owner, Franciscus Incorporated Roofing
Ice dams may appear harmless enough, but when they form in your gutters and extend onto the edges of your roof, they can create expensive structural damage—including water leakage into your home.
If you have an ice dam on your house, it is best to get rid of it before it causes major problems. But be careful: Forcefully breaking up an ice dam can result in damage to your shingles, gutters, and even the roof itself. Even worse, going onto a slippery roof can result in serious injury to you.
If you have an ice dam on your roof, you might consider calling a professional to remove it properly. Not only might it be safer for you a ...

Northeast Factory Direct’s Strong Madrid hot tub is the perfect counter to a cold Ohio winter.

The start of the New Year can prompt homeowners to take a good look at the interiors of their homes and think about ways to create a fresh new look. Flooring is a good place to get started on the right foot. After all, we’re all going to be seeing a lot of our living rooms and family rooms over the long winter months.
Since flooring is a long-term investment, homeowners are cautious about choosing not only the hottest current trend in carpeting, wood, and other flooring options, but they also want to be sure their selection will withstand the test of time.
Some of the growing trends, like bamboo and reclaimed wood flooring, also are hap ...

Today’s eco-friendly flooring options allow you to have a gorgeous home without walking all over the environment. Eco-friendly floor products include those that are recyclable, and those that are made from either a percentage of recycled materials or a natural, sustainable, or quickly renewable resource.
Many beautiful, durable, and stain-resistant carpets today are made from recycled plastic soda bottles. In fact, every square foot of PET polyester carpet fiber contains the equivalent of five recycled plastic soda bottles.
The Tribor line, from Hearth and Home, is an example of reliable, versatile carpeting made from recycled materials ...

The team’s ability to adopt and implement her unique sensibilities, as well as their flexibility and patience when searching for the perfect cabinet color is what convinced Therese that One Man was a ...
