Why clean the ducts of your brand new home?


Some people say, ‘No Way! It’s new, why would I clean something NEW? I wouldn’t clean a new car or a new garment, why would I clean a new house?!’
And while it might seem counter-intuitive, in this shirt article we’ll be talking about why it’s beneficial for you to do just that! Cleaned Ducts by Bridge City Duct CleaningBefore you set foot in your new home, dust and debris will already be gathering in those ducts! For the price you’ve just paid for your new home, isn’t it worth just a little bit more to invest in clean air for your family to breathe?

It’s a New House… But Just How ‘New’ Is it?

It’s true, you probably wouldn’t take that new car to the car wash right away, or take your new suit straight to the dry cleaners. But new homes are different. A lot goes on during the home construction process, both in front of our eyes as well as behind the scenes. Before the ductwork even makes it to your homesite, it may have sat for months or even years in a warehouse. That right there makes it prone to dust. Once it’s brought into the construction site, the ductwork is installed – and then it sits again, possibly several weeks or even months.  This time, however, it’s not only dust that’s accumulating. Construction is taking place in and around the house.  Dirt and dust are getting kicked up into the air. And, with new home construction happening at breakneck pace, not all construction trades are as careful with their job site as they ought to be. Just what kind of things can get into ductwork during construction? Duct Cleaning For Your New Home

Since 1949, Culligan Saskatoon's mission has been to deliver high-quality water treatment products that will benefit every part of their customers' lives. At Culligan, they understand that a water quality improvement system is an investment in your family. In their latest Saskatoon water tip they share Why Water is Essential For a Strong Immune System. Culligan are Trusted Saskatoon Water Experts

 



Water Is Essential For A Strong Immune System

We’re here when you need us: Culligan Saskatoon has been treating your water needs in Saskatoon and Surrounding areas since 1947. Our business is dedicated to making your water better using the best equipment, best service, and best prices around. We’re Family Owned: Our team lives and works in the local area and we’re a family owned and operated business. In our latest news  we share information on why water is Essential For a Strong Immune System.

Keeping ourselves healthy is a goal we can all share, and fortunately, there are steps we can take to boost our chances of staying well and fighting off infections. One is as easy as staying hydrated.


“Water is vital for the functioning of all of your organs, and it’s a huge part of keeping your immune system functioning at an optimal level,” says Dr. Jyothi Tirumalasetty, assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health in the department of clinical immunology and allergy. “We are made of 60 percent water. If we are dehydrated, the whole system of immunity could start breaking down.”


Proper hydration, along with adequate nutrition and sleep, is an essential component of a healthy immune system.

Dehydration Makes Us More Susceptible to Germs

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes the immune system as “our own private bodyguard” against infections and other harmful elements. It’s comprised of multiple components that include cells, tissues, and organs. One of those organs we know well: our skin. “It’s a barrier that protects you,” she says. When our skin barrier is impaired, it can become an open door for pathogens like bacteria and viruses to enter our bodies.

The immune system includes T cells that fight infection and work with B cells, which produce proteins called antibodies that travel through the blood. “Those antibodies are going to recognize pathogens and start switching around,” she says. “When they meet a new bacteria they say, ‘Oh, I need to change and learn to recognize this.’ The next time that enters your body, that antibody is going to attack it with full force.”

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes water as “a solvent” that helps these and other elements of the immune system work together. “Water carries important components of the immune system, including nutrients, to where they need to go and carries away waste from organs that are the byproducts of our everyday metabolism as we consume food and turn it into energy,” she says. If not flushed out, that waste has the potential to become toxic and weaken the immune system.

Make Hydration a Priority

In 2004, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine set general recommendations for daily water intake for healthy, sedentary people in temperate climates: about 2.7 litres (91 ounces) of water for women and about 3.7 litres (125 ounces) for men. The researchers found about 80 percent of people’s total water comes from drinking water and other beverages; the other 20 percent is derived from food.

However, Dr. Tirumalasetty stresses to her patients to switch to water instead of drinking more unhealthy options like juice and soda. She also says the amount of fluids individuals should drink largely depends on a number of factors. People who exercise a lot or are in hot climates likely need more than the recommended amount, for instance. Likewise, older adults with heart disease or kidney disease may need to limit their water intake if their bodies can’t regulate so much fluid.

The doctor says one universal rule is that by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Plan to drink plenty of water with meals and, if necessary, find ways to trick yourself into drinking it. Add flavoring to water, she says, or heat it up and add herbal tea. You should also eat water-rich foods, which include watermelon, strawberries and spinach.

“It’s just like getting eight hours of sleep and eating properly,” Dr. Tirumalasetty says. “Getting enough water is a huge component of wellness in my mind.”

Trusted Saskatoon IT Pro’s at Burnt Orange Solutions Owner Shares His Top 2020 IT Recommendations

Gareth McKee and his Trusted Saskatoon IT team at Burnt Orange, promise to have a one-hour response time for all your IT support needs. Honesty and respect are important to them. They pride themselves on ensuring their clients understand IT concerns by providing a straightforward and reliable solution with exceptional service.  Burnt Orange Solutions are your Trusted Saskatoon IT Experts and in their latest Saskatoon IT tip Gareth shares his Top 4 IT tips for 2020. 

BURNT ORANGE SOLUTIONS TOP 4 IT RECOMMENDATIONS IN 2020



Gareth has worked in the IT and Telecoms industry in a variety of guises since 1993. Initially in the UK military Gareth had to master a variety of technologies from Morse Code to Computer and Network Security. Gareth has spoken at national level at IT conferences and is well known in the industry throughout North America and the UK. He has a passion for customer service and IT security and compliance. 

#1 Microsoft Office 365/MS Teams

Microsoft Office 365 allows you to download apps like Excel, Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint to your computer or mobile device. You can also use this suite of tools completely online where you can manage, share, store, and edit documents in folders, giving access to all of your team.

Aside from the more specific apps, Microsoft Teams also allows you to communicate with your teammates via video calls, email, and through an internal discussion platform where your colleagues can create posts or ask questions.

 

 #2 Managed IT Security

Now, thanks to the Covid 19 Pandemic of 2020, most of us are all working from home, the need for a thorough look at your IT security is a must. The best way for any business to secure their computers, and more importantly their valuable business data, is to hand this job task over to a professional IT security firm.

The specially trained and tooled security firms use state of the art hard and software to ensure the client’s company is as safe as can be, this is whether the data is all in an office and being accessed from other offices, homes, or even Mars. This is not as expensive as it sounds and should be number 1 on any business owners list of things to do.


#3 Access To Business Data

There are many ways in which your staff can access your business data, keeping your business running, from home safely.

  1. Virtual Private Network (VPN) – A VPN allows you to logically lay a network cable from your computer at home directly into the network at the office. The VPN traffic should be encrypted to ensure it is transmitted from your office to home securely.
  2. File Sharing Software – DropBox or OneDrive can be used to easily share your data around your staff. Two thoughts on these solutions: 1. Do not use these as a backup, they are not a backup solution; 2. Your staff will now have your business data at home on their PCs, how do you plan to remove this once you are back in the office or a staff member leaves the business?
  3. Remote Data Access – This style of access data at the office is newer than the 2 options above and is set to be a disrupter in this area. Using zero trust as a starting point of access to your data from any device, never actually moving the data offsite and yet still providing access to all your data. It is difficult to describe how this works in a short article, so I found this video from FileFlex which explains beautifully. 

Back up

#4 Backup For Everyone

With more staff now working from home, whether they are on a work laptop or their home computer, the need for a managed backup is paramount. As data gets slowly moved away from your central office server it would be beneficial if all your home computers backed up to a central point where it can be easily recovered.


And, while I am talking backup, a backup that is not tested is not a backup. You should test recover some of your data at least once per month, nothing sets of a panic like a backup which is thought to have worked, but in fact fails when the day comes that you need to recover. – Thanks Gareth

Trusted Saskatoon Pet Experts at Furbaby Pet Care Explain Their 24 Hour Saskatoon Pet Care

Furbaby Pet Care in Saskatoon, SK, is dedicated to giving you peace of mind with the highest level of care for your pets. Their knowledgeable, experienced and professional staff will meet with your family to ensure your pet care needs are understood and every detail is covered! They have the expertise and experience that you need. Furbaby Pet Care Are Your Trusted Saskatoon Pet sitters, Pet walkers and Pet Massage Specialists and in their latest Saskatoon pet care tip they share why 24 hour pet care is always the best kennelling option. 


Why 24 Hour Pet Care From Furbaby is the Best Option For Your Saskatoon Pet.

Often, when pets are facility boarded, they are kennelled for the night and many times for long portions of the day. Basically, they are placed in solitary confinement for long stretches. For a dog or cat that’s used to running, free roaming and unfettered access to a house, yard or run, this can be a torturous and arduous experience, leading to long-term trauma, stress and mental anguish with lengthy affects on the rest of the animal’s life.


Pets belong with people. There would be no pets without their people. Otherwise, they’re just animals. So why put yours through something so stressful, scarring and traumatic?


24 Hour Pet Care, with people there for your pets all day, every day- this is how I want my dog cared for. Knowing there is always a person there if my dog needs a hug, or to lick a shin, a hand or a forehead, that’s a deep comfort to me and it has to be for my dog too! Jocelyn, Owner of Furbaby Pet Care

Seek out a true 24 Hour pet care facility for your pet and feel better, knowing that total care means the same thing to you that it means to them when you need someone to watch over your pet when you simply must go away. Be sure that it is truly 24Hr care, too, because while a lot of places may make that claim, hardly any follow through with living humans to watch over your best friends.

This is what we provide at Furbaby Campus: 24 hours of unconditional love and safety, every day of the year.
