The Mia Foundation takes in dozens of animals born with deformities with the goal of giving them a chance at a life. 

Indoor Air Professionals have been a long long time advertiser with WHAM and Jim Salmon. Jim has had them to his house and so has John Welch. As well as many listeners of the Home Repair Clinic. Most for duct cleaning but also for the medical grade air purifiers, Kanberra Gel, high grade dehumidifiers and more!

Jim had Indoor Air Professionals out to clean the duct work in his house,,,,it had been a while! Plus with lots of traffic in and out of the house, especially pets, it was time for sure!  Take a look at some of the pictures from that day, and thank you to IAP's team, Hector, Arnaldo & Ariel! They did a great job, were considerate, friendly, and knew what they were doing!

Have you been to REHOUSE Architectural Salvage?

If so, you know how fantastic it is. If you haven't been there - make a plan to see what it's all about! You will be absolutely amazed!

The team at REHOUSE works very hard to save valuable items that would probably end up in a landfill. They go into buildings and houses that are being taken down 

and retrieve all kinds of things, from bolts, hinges, doorknobs to doors, windows, handrails, and so much more. REHOUSE even took out an entire beautiful wooden bar from an old tavern being torn down, truly unique. It had a brass footrest as well as an full wall mirror with all the fixtures. 


Do it yourself-ers to contractors go to REHOUSE to find the "old" door to match others in the house, windows, bathroom sinks, etc. and hardware oh-so-many pieces!


REHOUSE is even more with their Artisan's Annex that has local artists' creations.

So you get vintage, new and everything in between at REHOUSE!

Who first said April showers bring May flowers?
The saying can be traced back to England from the 1500s poet Thomas Tusser. Back then, he wrote “Sweet April showers do spring May Flowers”. In England, the month of April brings huge weather swings with the jet stream lifting northward at the start of spring.
from the internet so we know it's all true!





UH OH,,,,,









Many times people's houses suffer damage from wind, water, fire etc. They typically call their insurance company and hope for the best. Then it turns into a nightmare, they don't want to cover the damage, they need you to find someone to look at it, you need to make way too many phone calls with lots of frustration. It doesn't have to go this way. You simply call National Fire Adjustment Company Incorporated = NFA. 585-272-8220 or 1-800-777-3333.

NFA will take it from there!  All that PRESSURE and wasted time off of you. You'll have enough to contend with, but not the worry and stress of back and forth with your insurance company.  Keep NFA's number in your phone, we hope you don't ever have to call them, BUT just in case you will be set.

During this real estate market debacle, homebuyers are under a lot of pressure to up their ante and waive every contingency. Who does that benefit? Certainly not the homebuyer.  If you had this happen to you, now is the time for a home inspection. A written inspection by Jim Salmon, licensed home inspector, will give you a report card of the condition of your new-to-you-house along with estimates of important repairs. He will discuss his findings with you and help with prioritizing the repairs.

His report gives you great information about things you probably had no idea. You can start to work on each item knowing approximate costs. Any time along the way you can always call Jim to run questions by him to get his opinion. Call 585-589-5650 to set an inspection.
