I know you don’t do windows well some of us have to and if that’s you pay attention. Step one is to remove any screening that may be covering the glass area of the window. If you have aluminum screening material it may have oxidized on the glass. So if you can see the screen pattern on the window glass dampen a cloth with water and use Bar Keepers friend. There are all kinds of great window cleaners on the market but it you want to mix up your own here goes. 10 quarts of water in a bucket with about 6 oz of rubbing alcohol and a couple of good squirts of Dawn liquid soap. Using a window brush or sponge apply this mixture to the window and scrub to remove any crust type material. Using a good squeegee work top to bottom to clear the cleaning material.
We paint or house, seal our deck so do we need to seal our concrete. The answer is; that it is a good idea to seal the concrete every 3 to 5years. Unless you have stamped concrete or an exposed aggregate concrete I would recommend a penetrating sealer. The penetrating seal does just that it penetrates into the surface of the concrete. In fact after it dries you cannot even tell anything has been applied. Sealing concrete helps prevent staining and spalling. It can be applied with a tank sprayer and then brush or roll into the surface if it is necessary. The sealer should never be allowed to puddle or it will be shiny and subject to peeling. Always power wash the surface before sealing. If you are using a water base sealer make sure to apply when the surface dry from water and morning dew.
The Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act is forcing changes in the store aisles.
Major changes are bearing down on plumbers and consumers as plumbing fixtures will soon have to meet new government-mandated environmental requirements, say product managers with House-Hasson Hardware.
Owners Howard and Wayne Miller wanted to build a place known as the “destination” for all household needs, remodeling and home building — to become a “must-see place” in northeast Ohio and beyond. At 285,000 sq. ft., the new Hartville Hardware encompasses 18 acres and features a 37,000-sq.-ft. drive-through lumberyard. Full-scale model homes inside the facility sets this store apart. “We wanted to make a statement,” said marketing manager Christa Domer, a fourth-generation Miller.
