Pets are our most cherished companions…they provide hours of enjoyment and fun and complete our families. As wonderful as it is having pets in the home, there is maintenance involved. Most domestic animals shed hair that gets deep into carpet and sticks to furniture. Cats and dogs also shed skin, leaving pet dander that may cause allergies. When your home is in need of a thorough carpet cleaning, the solution is the Dyson DC25 Animal Vacuum Cleaner.
The Dyson DC25 is a lightweight and powerful bagless vacuum that’s considered among the best vacuum cleaners for removing all types of pet hair and dander. The DC25 is ideal for maintaining your carpet’s cleanliness, as its powerful suction removes hair that’s stuck deep within carpet fibers.

As the recent tornadoes proved, spring can be a treacherous time. But are you inviting more danger into your home by overloading undersized extension cords? Doing so may result in a deadly fire…even if lightning doesn’t strike.
Since May is Electrical Safety Month, take inventory of your plug deployment. Check if you are overloading outlets. Check if your cords are crimped, pinched, frayed, chewed on by pets or simply just worn out. Any of these conditions could start an extension cord fire.
According to the U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC), a cord fire breaks out every six minutes. Half of all electrical fires are caused by faulty flexible power cords (extension cords, surge strips, and appliance cords).
While growing up, most of us learned the hard way that electrical outlets aren’t playthings. To a young child, inserting such common objects as hairpins, keys or paper clips into those inviting slots often proves irresistible – yet may have dangerous consequences.
According to National Electrical Manufacturers Association ( NEMA), an average of seven children across the U.S. per day are treated in emergency rooms for injuries due to contact with electrical outlets. Most victims experience 1st-degree or 2nd-degree burns; however, more serious injuries may also occur.
Since May is Electrical Safety Month, it’s the perfect time to ensure that you and your family are protected from two possible in-home threats – carbon monoxide and smoke. Installing both types of detectors throughout your home could save you and your family from harm. While we posted this information back in October during Fire Safety Month, it bears repeating.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. It is often called the “silent killer” because it is odorless, tasteless and undetectable by humans. The use of carbon monoxide alarms could potentially prevent many of these deaths. CO is produced by fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, ovens, clothes dryers, water heaters, space heaters, fireplaces, charcoal or gas grills, and wood burning stoves. Vehicles and other combustion engines – like a generator running in an enclosed space – can also cause CO poisoning. Initial symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to the flu (with no fever) and can include dizziness, severe headache, nausea, sleepiness, fatigue/weakness and disorientation. Since these symptoms are often misdiagnosed, many people don’t know they are suffering from CO poisoning.
Here are some things that you can do today to protect your family and yourself from potential carbon monoxide poisoning:
I don’t know about your dad, but the last thing mine needs this Father’s Day is another tie that he’ll probably never wear! After all of these years, I know him well enough to know that nothing makes him happier than fixing things around the house. On the weekends he’ll gather up his tools, disappear for a while and then reappear to proudly tell everyone that he finally finished building the deck or that he unclogged the sink in the guest bathroom. That’s why this year the easy part was deciding that I want to give him the convenience of not having to aimlessly search for his tools when he needs them. The hard part will be choosing from all of the handy tool kits and combos available today.
Severe weather can strike any time of the year, and whether you’re facing a hurricane or heavy rainfall, flooding a significant danger. If flooding and water damage threaten your home and the safety of you and your family, take a look at the steps you can take to ensure maximum safety:
This year, why not celebrate Mother’s Day in the great outdoors and turn her backyard into a relaxing al fresco retreat?
The Frame it All 10-1/2 ft. Raised Garden Bed is the perfect accent to any backyard. A raised bed gives you more control over soil conditions, as well as weed and pest control, making it easy to grow healthy plants and flowers that Mom is sure to love. If she has a green thumb, she’ll also enjoy how a raised bed makes it much easier to access her garden so that she can tend to every single plant with ease.
Are you looking to add a unique focus to really set an area of your home apart? You may find yourself gravitating toward a labor-intensive idea like repainting or refinishing. However, another idea to consider is adding a small specialty appliance to give a distinct flavor to one specific living area.
Although small specialty appliances like cotton candy machines, vintage popcorn machines, ice cream makers, and fondue sets are centered around food, their distinctive visual appeal can stretch beyond your kitchen. With a vintage popcorn maker, any room can become a classy impromptu home theater with snacks to rival your local cineplex. Just add a big screen HDTV and a booming surround system, and you can take your favorite flicks to a new dimension without having to run out to sticky-floored, noisy theaters for that authentic experience. Imagine making your own ice cream and hosting a social or party featuring your customized creations. It’s safe to say that small specialty appliances can bring a little of “party” to almost any room or occasion!
If you are looking for a bit more sophistication, check out our selection of chocolate fondue/beverage fountains. These handy devices can really “make” an event, creating a beautiful display to accompany their delicious output.
Although they come in small packages, these specialty appliances can make a big difference with the flair they add to your home whether they are solely enjoyed by you or by guests whom you want to dazzle and entertain.
