    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

  • Surviving the Humidity When You’re Working Outside

    When it’s humid - and it will be soon - trying to do work outside can be torture. Try some of these tips when you’re working outside. Don't want to do any exterior home renovations this summer? Give your Cleveland Contractors and Home Mechanics a call today!

    1. Turn up the thermostat! Keeping your whole house below 75 degrees is not only expensive, it is actually dangerous to your health and self-defeating as well. By not allowing your system to adjust to warm weather, you feel the heat more intensely. You also expose yourself to temperature shock. The sudden change from 95 degrees outside to 70 degrees inside can make you nauseous.

    2. Fight heat and humidity with warm water. Take more showers. A quickie with barely warm water will refresh you and make your house feel cooler. Such a shower at bedtime will let you fall asleep faster.

    3. If possible, do your yard and garden work early in the morning or late in the afternoon, after the heat has eased. Take advantage of shade if you can. Of course, mosquitoes are more active during these hours so use repellent.

    4. Timing. Come inside every half hour or so. Keep a towel by the back door so you can dry the sweat off your face and neck the moment you enter the house. Swab your face, neck (especially in back) and wrists with a cool wet wash cloth. Chug down a glass of ice water. Temperature shock can be pleasant in your mouth! Plus, the water will keep you hydrated.
