Trusted Saskatoon Brags about Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon & area Memorial Forest

The Trusted Saskatoon Directory Team are ecstatic to welcome Treeternity Memoria Forest to our directory of excellence and brag about what makes their services truly unique. Treeternity is your Trusted Saskatoon memorial forest.  

"Let A Tree Tell Your Story"


When you lose a loved one or have a big occasion in your life you often think of ways to remember or celebrate these moments. What the Trusted Saskatoon Team loves about Treeternity, is that they have a created a beautiful space specifically for this purpose. When asked how the concept of Treeternity was founded this is what Mia had to say.

Well I could never really decide exactly what I want my loved ones to do when the time inevitably comes.  I always thought I would like to donate every organ I possibly can to help in any way but then what would my family do, what would they be left with?  If I were cremated and wanted my ashes spread someplace random would that be it?  My family would not have anywhere to go to remember me if I did that.  I feel like I want to have a memorial place which provides a point of focus for remembrance and I would like that place to be a beautiful, happy, modern place...and with that Treeternity Memorial Forest was born...  I want to be a tree and love the thought of having a tree leave my mark here on Earth. - Mia Hollinger (Owner of Treeternity)


When you purchase a memorial tree...

1. You will have a choice of 4 tree types from which you will choose one. Oak, Maple, Linden or an ornamental flowering crab apple tree.

2. When you purchase a memorial you will choose where you would like to plant your tree from the available 12’x12’ spaces.

3. You will receive a standard 9"x5" FusionCast TM Plaque which will be placed flat in the ground in front of the tree. You will choose your own personal message to be inscribed on the plaque.

4. Planting starts as soon as possible in the spring once the ground is no longer frozen and will plant throughout the season as the weather allows.  On your planting day, you and your loved ones will receive your tree and we will show you to the space you have previously chosen. The plaque will be in place and the area will be ready for you to plant your tree. You are left to do your planting and enjoy the day.  There is a beautiful gazebo on location for you to enjoy.


We spoke to quite a few of Treeternity's clients and we're excited to hear their experiences and what this has meant to them. This is what one of their client's Maureen had to say:


"When Gord's mom passed away ( May 25, 2018) we planted a tree for his parents, giving their wedding date and each of their birth and passing dates. Then I decided to plant a tree for my parents in the same way. We have reserved a spot to plant a tree for ourselves on our 50th which is December 2020...so we will plant it early. That prompted my daughter to think about one for their 20th which is in 2025. We fancy having an entire corner of forest for our family trees. The grandchildren already feel it is their forest. I have recommended Treeternity to others and have found comfort and beauty in this place," - Maureen Haddock 


Treeternity is truly a special place. Whether it is finding a way to remember a loved one or pet after they have passed and the funeral is over or celebrating an anniversary, birthday or another milestone Treeternity is a perfect place. These trees are truly a unique way to cope with difficult times in your life and provide closure for your family. They also are a way to celebrate milestones in your life and watch the tree grow for years to come. 

We are thrilled to give the thumbs up to Mia and Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest! See all they do and read client testimonials on Treeternity listing here on the Trusted Saskatoon Directory 


Trusted Saskatoon Window Expert Brad at Wiebe Windows & More shares a window tip on dealing with condensation

Wiebe Windows & More owner  Bradley Wiebe has been installing windows and doors in Saskatoon and area for over 10 years. They only install Canadian manufactured windows and doors. These products are built for the Saskatchewan climate. Wiebe Windows & More are Trusted Saskatoon Windows & Door, Experts share a window tip on prevention condensation. 

Are your windows weeping? Are you struggling with condensation? 


Have you noticed that the windows in your home are continually fogging up? Does it seem like they are collecting moisture? This isn’t necessarily your windows’ fault. In fact, window condensation may be an indicator of something entirely different. Your foggy windows may be an indicator that you need to reduce indoor humidity before it causes hidden, costly problems elsewhere in your home like peeling paint, rotting wood, buckling floors, insulation deterioration, mildew, even moisture spots on ceilings and walls.

Do windows cause condensation?


No. Windows do not cause condensation. But, windows are often the first place where condensation can be seen. Think about it. You’re probably not surprised or concerned when your bathroom mirror becomes fogged. You expect it after a hot shower. Your car windows fog up in humid weather or in winter when you have several passengers. These are just a few examples. And although condensation usually occurs in cold weather, it can occur during humid months when air conditioning is running. The mirror doesn’t cause the condensation. The car windows don’t cause it either. These are just the first places you actually see condensation. Check your bathroom walls after a shower – you’ll see condensation there, too. Run your finger along the wall. You’ll see water on your finger, and you’ll see the trail of your finger through the condensation on the wall.The same is true for the windows in your home.  

What does cause condensation?


Condensation forms when warm, humid air contacts a cold surface. Moisture is in the air all around us. Warmer air can hold more moisture. As air cools, it contracts (just as people pull their arms and clothing tight around them when chilled) and its moisture condense. When the temperature drops, the first place you will see any condensation is on the windows. Your windows are the coldest surfaces indoors. During colder months, indoor air is much warmer and holds more moisture than outdoor air, which is colder and dry. Warm, humid indoor air cools and contracts as it contacts the cooler windows, and the moisture condenses on the glass.


 

How to reduce window condensation by controlling and improving ventilation


1. Leave blinds and/or drapes open as wide as possible at night and open all window coverings during the day. This will increase the warm air circulation over the cool surface and increase the temperature of the glass. 

2. Check the furnace filter and replace if dirty. A dirty furnace filter will reduce the output of the furnace fan. A clean filter will ensure maximum flow. 

3. Turn your humidifier off during the winter and anytime the temperature falls below 0 degrees C. 

4. Always turn on the bathroom fan when bathing or showering. The best results are achieved when the fan is ducted directly to the outside. Humidistat controlled fans which automatically turn on when the humidity exceeds the setting on the switch is also available. Running the fan will also reduce the fogging of bathroom mirrors. 

5. Always turn on the range fan when cooking. For best results, make certain the fan is ducted directly to the outside. 

6. Ensure your clothes drier is properly ducted to the outside, no air leakage is present in the duct, and the duct is free of all blockages. Avoid hanging clothes indoors to dry. 

7. Ensure fresh air intake for the furnace is free of all blockages. If your house has no fresh air intake to the furnace, have one installed. 

8. Ensure all hot and cold air registers are clear of any obstruction as this could affect maximum air circulation. Avoid the use of air deflectors. Air deflectors directed towards a window can result in thermal cracks in the glass. 

9. Install ceiling fans in locations where heat registers are not located close to the windows. The increase in air flow will definitely help reduce condensation on these windows. Ceiling fans should be run continuously in houses where the relative humidity is above recommended levels. 

10. Floors wet from mopping can add large amounts of moisture. Run exhaust fans while floors are wet and avoid washing floors on cold days. 

11. Wipe up any excess snow or moisture tracked into the house. The evaporation of the moisture will result in an increase in the relative humidity level. 

12. Run your furnace fan continuously. Most furnaces are equipped with a switch which allows the furnace fan to operate even when the furnace is not producing heat. If your furnace is not equipped with this type of switch, have one installed. 

13. Open doors and windows periodically to allow the dry air outside to replace the moist air inside. 

14. Ensure there are no leaks in the water pipes or drains. 

15. Ensure window and door frames are caulked where they meet the exterior finish of the house. This reduces the possibility of cold air infiltration which may lower the inside temperature of the window or door. 

16. Remove interior screens in the winter to allow for better ventilation over the window surface. Screens will hamper the flow of air over the interior surface. 

17. Patios, decks, and landings: Do not stack patio furniture or other articles near or against windows that directly cause shading or “cold spots” on your windows and doors. This reduces the effectiveness and performance of the glass. This can also lead to glass cracking.

Saskatoon Plumbing Tips for Drain Clog Prevention

Having to call your Saskatoon plumber every time a drain in your home gets clogged can become time-consuming, frustrating, not to mention very expensive. Your drains may work right now, but clogs can happen at any time. Though plumbing codes, normal plumbing maintenance, and good drain pipe materials can keep the rate of clog formation to a minimum, most people do not have the advantage or the ability to decide what plumbing materials are to be used. No one thinks about plumbing maintenance until there is a clogged drain. Clogged drains can create severe water damage to a home’s structure (such as the wiring) and can be a potential health risk. Problems caused by a clogged drain can be avoided by taking necessary steps of drain maintenance to prevent clogs from occurring. Remember, prevention is not only easy to do but can save you a lot of money in the long run!

 Tip 1: When cleaning up after dinner, run hot water through the drain to prevent grease buildup and hard water deposits. Once every few days, to really prevent buildup in your pipes, first put in a half cup of baking soda, followed by a half cup of vinegar, and then wash it through with boiling hot water.


Tip 2: Check your bathtub stoppers every three months for hair and buildup of biofilm (a mixture of bacteria, food particles, soap residue, and body oils that hardens as layers begin to build up and lead to a clogged drain) and see if the stopper needs to be replaced due to wear and tear. Once a week, fill the bathtub halfway to three-fourths full (while the stopper is in the drain) and then pull out the stopper. The weight and volume of the water will fill the pipe and will flush the drain line.          

  
Tip 3: Have your home plumbing system regularly inspected for maintenance from the team at JOB Heating and Air. As a preventative measure, at least once a year, hire a plumber to snake your home’s drain lines for any buildups that can lead to a clog. For major connections, such as your septic tank or your main pipe to the sewer system, have periodic inspections. Small roots that penetrate a drain pipe can be cleaned up before it turns into a big problem. If regular inspections are not performed by a plumber, the roots can become entrenched in the drain pipe and will have to be replaced altogether. 

Tip 4:  Special clog prevention for kitchen sinks include: remove all kitchen waste from the sink; do not pour coffee grinds down the sink; do not pour grease down the sink; and catch all food from falling down the sink.

Tip 5: Most plumbers will tell you to avoid using chemical-based cleaners as clog prevention on a regular basis as they can corrode metal pipes after awhile. A natural cleaner is an enzyme/bacteria based cleaner. Once poured down a drain, it creates colonies of good bacteria that destroy bad bacteria that cause clogs in your drains. Use natural-based cleaners at night, just before everyone goes to sleep – large amounts of water used after the cleaner can get rid of the good bacteria before it has had time to work.
