I hired a local company to clean the algae off my interlocking stones. When the lockdown first happened, the grandkids loved hanging out by the pool.
This company brought in specialized equipment (no chemicals, just steam and hot water) and cleaned my property 👍 So happy with the results. Pressure washing took me way too long.
Company is called H2Go Mobile.

The ideal humidity level in your home during the summertime is about 45-55% - but getting the right amount can be tricky. Make sure you're using your exhaust fans when you cook and bathe so all that heavy moisture gets pulled out of the air. If you have areas in your home that feel extra humid, a dehumidifier can help. If you buy an individual unit - it will only work in a specific area - if the entire home is too humid, you may want to look into upgrading your HVAC to include an energy recovery ventilator (ERV). #TipTuesday

Next to you, the most important person in your renovation is your general contractor. They are the ones who will be in and out everyday. They will be hiring and overseeing the work of the subcontractors. They will be responsible for how the work is done, and when.
They may bring in an architect or engineer if needed.
Choose the right general contractor and everything should go fine. That's an obvious statement, but it is frightening how little thought people put into hiring the right contractor.

How can you stay cool without relying on A/C? Switch your overhead fans to run counter-clockwise to push any cool air down. It won't make the room any colder (so you can turn it off when you leave), but it will make you feel more comfortable while you use the room. #TipTuesday

If your eavestroughs clog often with leaves and debris, consider installing a screen over top to keep water moving clearly through your system. #TipTuesday
