It takes special care to safely and effectively remove mold from a flood-damaged building.

  • How to select sunglasses

    Wearing sunglasses in the middle of summer may seem like a no-brainer, but not all sunglasses provide protection from ultraviolet rays, and not all adults wear them like they should. According to The Vision Council, 65 percent of American adults view a pair of sunglasses as a fashion accessory rather than a health necessity. One in four adults rarely or never wear sunglasses when going outside, with millennials, adults born between 1981 and 1996, being the least likely to wear sunglasses always or often.

  • One vacation not to take

    I have very fond memories from my childhood of going on summer vacation with my family.  There is something exciting about packing your bags, driving several hours, and being away from home for a few days.  However, now that I am an adult who does not get his summers off, I have found that I enjoy them even more.  It is good to get away and take a break with my family.  It is good to interrupt the routine, step back from the business of life, and be away with each other.  It is good to rest.
