While an air conditioner can provide relief to the summertime heat, the average homeowners spend about $375 on air conditioning. Slash your summer energy bills -- not comfort -- with these helpful tips:
1. Use a programmable thermostat. If you have central air controlled by a thermostat, save energy by turning the desired temperature up during the day when the house is empty.
2. Get an annual checkup. Bring in a professional yearly to evaluate your heating and cooling system and diagnose any inefficiencies.

A professional image starts with a professional cleaning! And when businesses want to make a good impression to customers & guests, they call ServiceMaster By Mason! Our Technicians recently provided a professional deep-clean of carpets at two Connecticut businesses, creating a clean and healthy environment, and accommodating various scheduling needs. Head Technicians Mike Parrack and Hector Lopez worked late into the evening at The Courthouse Bar & Grille, removing stains and thoroughly cleaning carpets in this popular restaurant in downtown Putnam CT (check out their wonderful menu at www.courthousebarandgrille.com and enjoy!). And once the school season ended at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, Connecticut, our work began, as Technicians provided a top-to-bottom clean of RA Rooms in two campus buildings, and returned on a Saturday to clean and refresh carpets for another department. Our team worked diligently to refresh and extend the life of carpets, while ensuring our customer’s satisfaction.

Since harmful mold can begin to grow 24-48 hours after water damage has occurred, ServiceMaster By Mason is ready to respond to homes & businesses in need, even if we need planes and boats to get there! Ryan Mason flew to Block Island to promptly assess the damage to a home that experienced water issues and extensive mold growth & damage to building materials and belongings in several rooms. Technicians David Epps, Zac Lebeau & Roberto Roque travelled by ferry to reach the Island, and began carefully working to remove mold from the upper loft, 3 bedrooms, bathrooms & basement, and cleaning ALL furniture & belongings in these rooms, along with the kitchen and diningroom. The professional team removed mold from the home’s duct-work, arranged for textiles to be expertly drycleaned, and deep-cleaned carpets. Using the latest products and equipment, they thoroughly dried all areas, set-up Air Scrubbers on all 3 home levels, HEPA vacuumed finite mold spores & debris, discarded unsalvageable materials, and used an anti-microbial spray to prevent future mold growth. They worked diligently to restore the property and the homeowners peace of mind!
When a fire occurred at a Pizzeria in Coventry CT, the water used to douse the flames caused extensive water damage in the neighboring businesses, including the dance studio below. The water and warmth quickly created mold, which spread throughout the dance studio and even behind walls, ceilings & floors. That’s when the ServiceMaster By Mason team was called to dry out the facility and remove the harmful mold. Our professional team began demolition efforts to remove insulation and vapor barrier from the dance floors and walls, and eliminated some walls entirely. The certified Technicians continued removing the dance mirrors & floor, drop ceiling tiles and its grid, and all affected furniture. Since the dance studio had no electricity, ServiceMaster By Mason brought in and set-up a large generator to adequately power our equipment, including a large desiccant dehumidifier, spreading plastic tubing around the interior of the building. This dried the area faster, creating time and money savings for the insured.
