A Carbon Monoxide Detector can save your life. 

If you have a gas furnace in your home you MUST be sure that you have a carbon monoxide detector close by. It's a matter of life or death. Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that can be emitted from a malfunctioning gas furnace, so it's extremely important to have a detector near the area where your furnace is to keep your family and home safe should carbon monoxide be present. There are many affordable devices on the market, a popular choice is the "First Alert" Carbon Monoxide Plug-In Alarm to plug into the wall or battery operated detector is available too.

Trusted SASKATOON HEALTH expert has a tip about the Top 5 FAQ's on Medical Tourism on the SASKATOON DIRECTORY



The Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions on Finances for Medical Tourism!

1. Why are prices for medical tourism so much less than at home? The cost advantage evolves from the lower cost of living and wages paid in most destination countries as compared to North America.

2. How is payment handled for the trip and the surgery? Your air tickets, hotels and deposit for surgery must be paid in advance through Global Healthcare Connections Inc. We will be pleased to provide you with specific payment information once you have decided on the service provider, facility, and choice of travel date. Full financing for Canadian citizens is available for your medical trip; please let us know if you would like us to help with financing options.

3. Can I seek reimbursement through the government or my private medical insurance for medical travel? Not generally and especially if it is an elective surgery. There may be special circumstances; you will have to check directly with your private medical plan administrator for private insurance, and if you are looking for support from the Canadian Government, all requests for support are reviewed on an individual basis and expenses for healthcare outside of Canada must be pre-approved prior to travel.

4. Are the costs of medical services outside of Canada tax deductible? If you are incorporated there is a legal way to deduct up to 100% of your out of country medical costs. For individuals, your tax relief is limited to the amount by which your expenses exceed 3% of your income. Always seek the guidance from a chartered accountant for allowable income expenses.

5. Do I have to pay any fee for their services? Generally, no. We receive a contracted service fee from the medical providers in our network.

Bateman Jewellers Trusted Saskatoon Jewellery Store provide a Trusted Tip on cleaning jewellry!

Bateman Jewellers are Saskatoon Jewellery Experts...did you know that they are the oldest independent jewellery store in Saskatoon! Bateman Jewellers maintain that the relationship with their clients is very important to them, and Trusted is sure you have heard Cam say in his well known radio ads " Your jewellery is a lifetime investment; Buy it from a lifetime friend. " ..Trusted can attest to the fact that they really DO mean it, and we are proud to have Bateman Jewellers as Trusted Saskatoon Jeweller!

Here Cam shares his First Trusted Jewellery Tip:

Cleaning Jewellry

There are a couple of "urban legends" about how and what to clean your jewellery with?

1 - Comet - a wonderful cleaning agent but terribly hard on your jewellery even when cut with water and mixed to a paste. Comet has chlorine bleach which is a mild acid that actually eats away minute amounts of gold. It is especially hard in the places we solder things back together like chains when they break or rings when they breaks in the same place it was just sized. It also says No Harsh Abrasives except it has Quartz in it which is harder than glass so you decide on how abrasive. For the same reason we DON"T recommend you to wear your gold or sliver jewellery in pools and hot tubs. Again cause of the chlorine. This is why your chain becomes brittle after a few years of wear.

2. - Toothpaste again abrasive and the new whitener types have bleaching agents so same problem as comet.

3. - Bleach has Chlorine again no good it is an acid eats the gold.

4. - Pools and Hot tubs use chlorine products to disinfect explained in comet section.

Keep it simple for years to get your dishes clean we used Palmolive soap. Palmolive is a grease fighter... whats on your ring is the day to day oils from your skin ie grease and also from lotions etc. It is wonderful on your jewellery washes off with water!For stubborn dirt add the use of a soft tooth brush and wa la squeaky clean every time. You can use other brands like sunlite etc. But in 67 years we have found Palmolive to be the best and still use it today...for our dishes too.

Thanks, to Cam from Bateman Jewellers !

As they always say .."Professional Carpet Cleaning for Particular People" and the only Saskatoon Carpet Cleaners ' Given the Thumbs up' by Trusted Saskatoon! Here Hal McGinnis the owner shares his first Trusted Tip

Carpet Cleaning scams and how to avoid them

This article from Nanaimo Newspaper just last year highlights the kind of issues you can run into when you don’t choose a reputable Carpet Cleaner  Also Carpet Cleaning is renowned For ‘ Bait and Switch’ scams…

Bait and switch scams work like this:

  • A company advertises cleaning a roomful of carpets for a ridiculously low price ( you must have seen the small signs around the city on posts and walls?) . When they arrive, they inform you the price they quoted is only for the traffic lanes and doesn’t include any cleaning chemicals." That’s like taking a bath with no soap,". So you agree to pay extra for the chemicals because you are thankful someone showed up. In the end, the final bill ends up costing you hundreds of dollars.
  • Another typical scam is hearing that a company will clean a set amount of rooms for a very low price (like 5 rooms for $49.00). After they begin, you discover a linen closet, hallway, foyer, or regular closet counts as a room, and you wind up paying a lot more than you thought you would. Bait-and-switch scams are especially targeted at the elderly. Seniors are more likely to be intimidated by high pressure tactics and by someone who "promises" to give them a good deal.

So how can you avoid a bait-and-switch scam?

The best protection against bait-and-switch is to ask some pointed questions before the cleaner arrives at your home.If the company cannot answer simple questions, move on to another company. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Here are 10 questions you should ask:

1.  Are you certified in carpet cleaning? If not, what type of formal training do you have?

2. How many years has your company been in business?" ( the longer, the better)

3. Can you provide a list of 10 references I can call?

4. Is your company drug, alcohol and criminal free? ( they may be in your home alone for some time...don't risk it!)

5. Can you provide proof of insurance and a business license?

6. What steps will be included in your cleaning process? Does your company use Green products? (Using cheap cleaning solutions that cause rapid re-soling, many chain, franchise and bait and switch cleaners use detergents that may be harmful to you, your family and your pets. Make sure the firm you choose can prove that they use cleaning solutions that are safe for you and the environment.)

7. How long will it take for the carpet to dry?

8. Do you offer free, no-obligation, on-site written quotations?

9. Do you offer a written, satisfaction or money back guarantee?

10. Are they a member of an agency or directory with standards that hokd them to account? ( for example- I would also check to see if they have any negative online reviews)

With these 10 steps you should save yourself alot of heartache!
