Smoke Webs

These really are not cobwebs you missed when you were cleaning.  Residues from burning plastics or the soot from furnace disorders, form long chains of ionized smoke particles that assemble in corners or at junctions of walls and ceilings which are called smoke webs!

Ultrasonic Cleaning Available

With Ultrasonics no scrubbing or abrasive chemicals are necessary.  Objects are submersed in a specially formulated solution.  Sound waves pass through the solution and lift away soot, smoke and odor.  The process is much more efficient and effective than any other known means.

Deep Frying a Turkey?

Are you deep frying a turkey this week?  Please remember these tips...

  • Turkey fryers can easily tip over, spilling hot cooking oil over a large area
  • An overfilled cooking pot will cause cooking oil to spill when the turkey is put in, and partially frozen turkey will cause cooking oil to splatter when put in the pot.
  • Even a small amount of cooling oil spilling on a hot burner can cause a large fire.
  • Without thermostat controls, deep fryers can overheat oil to the point of starting a fire.
  • The sides of the cooking pot, lid and pot handles can get dangerously hot!
