  • Dust Buildup Can Be Seriously Hazardous

    Dust accumulation behind furniture can lead to health risks, electrical damages, and even fires.



    Build up of dust in certain places is highly dangerous and it collects around surfaces that we don’t often see. A lot of extension cords, power outlets, and strip plugs are usually located behind beds, desks, and other large pieces of furniture to hide them away.

    While it’s normal to have some dust accumulation, having a thick layer on your appliance plugs isn’t. This and other materials can combine and form combustible dust which is the cause of most electric fires. This dust can also attract bed bugs and other critters to live in the plug holes in your walls and lead to even more internal wire failure.

     

    To avoid this, follow these simple tips to stay on top of dust buildup behind your larger pieces of furniture.

     

    • Pull out power cord strips out to wipe the layers of dust off.

     

    • Every month or two, pull away furniture to remove any trash, dust, and any other pieces of life that fall behind.

     

    • Always make sure your cords aren’t too tangled together.  Friction and too much wear and tear can add to the risk of fires starting.


    We recently cleaned a house facing this issue behind a bed; now it’s thankfully cleaned!


    Hopefully these simple tips can save you some peace of mind knowing your home is less at risk of fire damage by simply cleaning the dust off your power outlets.

    Happy cleaning!

  • How my father helped my business grow

    On Father's Day we honor our husbands and fathers, showing them our appreciation for who they are.

    I owe my entrepreneur abilities to my father. For 63 years he has been in the automobile business where I learned skills from him such as honesty, caring about those that surround you in your business, and being sincere in your work. That is our culture at DYNM, to nurture our clients and employees as if they were family.

    Dad taught me to be patient and listen when a client or an employee needed my help to solve a problem. He also taught me to be grateful for each and every communication, as everyone is an important lifeline of the business. He told me to always appreciate our clients and make them feel special, while rewarding the hard work from the employees, who arrive at the office with smiling faces.

    My husband, Tom Rawcliffe, has also been a large part of our success. His experience as a CIO has helped DYNM in many ways, taking the role of cleaner, operations manager, vacuum repairer, and confidant. He taught me to learn from the negative and appreciate the positive aspects of being in business. His calm, engineer’s approach to problem solving taught me to slow down and look at every negative as an opportunity to do better.

    Thank you both for all the love and guidance over the years to help Do you need me? blossom into the business that it is today. I love you both so much!
