Spring is here!
Spring is in the air ladies and gentlemen! Here comes the blooming flowers and beautiful weather. However, along with saying goodbye to winter, we also have to welcome sniffles and sneezes. Yes, allergy season is here as well, unfortunately. While others are frolicking in the spring breeze, there are those who are stopping at their local drug stores for allergy medication. For those who have to take extra precautions during this time of the year, here are some tips to make spring enjoyable rather than bearable.
- Laundry, laundry, laundry! After being outside pollen may stick to clothing and the skin/hair. Be sure to wash clothing after being outside!
- For homeowners: Make sure to mow your lawn! Take care of those pesky weeds and other flowers that release pollen.
- Keep windows and doors closed during days where there are high pollen levels.
- Dehumidifiers and air filters in your home may be very helpful!
- Clean, clean, clean!
Have a wonderful spring everyone!
Condition of bathroom prior to our work.
When looking at the image on the right it is visible to see where the damage is. The room is covered in dust, debris, and possible unknown toxins. These types of conditions are unsuitable for any individual to be in. Our team here at SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City and SERVPRO of Lower Manhattan knew exactly how to take this task head on. You can see in the after picture on the right the conditions have improved immensely. The floor is visible again. Both the sink and toilet have been restored to their original white color. The green air mover was a great tool to help get the job done. Our customer was very thankful four our services and overall happy with the final turnout.
Basement after our crew went in and cleaned it up,
Cleanings are one of our services we offer here at SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City and Lower Manhattan. Not pictured in the picture on the right is the basement of this property had a great deal of clutter the customer did not want to deal with. Here at SERVPRO we like nothing more than to take the stress off the shoulders of our clients. Our crew bagged up everything the client wanted to discard and took the appropriate steps to waste cleanup. Looking at the picture here on the right you can see the difference of clutter. We discarded all the unwanted items and disposed of them properly. Our client was very impressed with the level of skill our crew provided and can rest assured.
Decluttering kid stuff
No more stepping on LEGO'S!
• Keep them open-ended. Boxes, blocks, building things, art supplies—all these can be manipulated a million different ways.
• Make sure the toy invites the kid to play. There are far too many toys on the market that entertain, not provide the chance to play. A telltale sign (for me, anyway): they involve a lot of buttons that make noise.
• They should stand the test of time. Sure, some toys are age-specific. But most should be enjoyable by all the kids in the house, and for years at a time.
• They’re quality over quantity. I’d rather have fewer, better things. Kids play with things more, not less, when they’re given fewer options. (It’s the classic paradox of choice we face when we’re in the toothpaste aisle, forced to choose from 27 varieties. If we’re in a small store that has three, we’ll choose one and easily move on with our lives.)
