prepare for winter You may think this is a no-brainer, but many people fail to properly clean their decks before winter.

Cleaning will also prevent water build-up on your deck by improving the ventilation.
cars in winter Let’s face it; there is nothing more frustrating than driving through the snow with poor visibility and suddenly you hit a slipper spot on the road and the next thing you know you are spinning out of control. And, it’s downright scary being out of control with your vehicle and you end up finding yourself hood to hood with another vehicle.
