California Law Effective July 1, 2011 for Installation of Carbon Monoxide Alarms in All Single Family Homes

by Barbara 27. June 2011 14:13

Question about approved carbon monoxide alarms for use in California.

Q: "Do you sell carbon monoxide alarms on the "List of California State Fire Marshal Approved Carbon Monoxide Alarms"? The law now requires these be installed in every single family dwelling. How quickly can they be shipped. Thanks. Steve."

Answer: Yes, we do sell several approved carbon monoxide alarms. Unless you are ordering a large quantity of units, we ship within 3 business days using either the postal service or UPS.  The Fire Marshall list expires in July 2012.

Costar Models:

Kidde and Kidde Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide Alarms:

If there are other approved Kidde units you would like pricing on, please let us know. We are able to discount larger quantities of these products. Most come in case of 12 or 24 units. Remember you need to install at least one carbon monoxide alarm on each level of your home and one CO alarm in every bedroom where the door is shut at night. Do remember that if you have gas burning appliances like ranges, stoves and furnaces that you also should add gas alarms for propane or natural gas to protect against explosions and fires.

Thank you for bringing this new law to our attention.

Sincerely, Barbara

Lambswool Dusters Made in Canada Are Fully Washable and Attract Dust

by Barbara 9. June 2011 08:30

Question about the lambswool dusters, the Lambswool Duster, 10 inch Head, with Standard Handle and the Lambswool Duster w/ Telescope Handle, Assorted Colors

Q: "Are these made in China? I prefer to buy products either Made in USA or Made in Canada. Also are these washable? And are they sturdy enough for a cleaning service? Thanks. Sue."

Answer: These are made in Canada with Canadian wool. Our  primary customers are large hotel and motel chains, cleaning and janitorial services and private companies who have their own cleaning and maintenance personnel. Individuals often purchase these dusters along with our Bona Kemi and Sh-Mop products if they do their own housecleaning.

The standard handle duster has a sturdy plastic handle that is 16 inches long, 26 inches with the 10 inch lambswool dusting head. We buy these in cartons of assorted colors as we do the lambswool duster with telescoping handle. Each has an end loop for hanging or you can thread a cord through for hanging if you choose.

The extended length, telescoping duster has the same 10 inch long lambswool duster head. The handle locks at the length you prefer. The handle extends to 42 inches from 32 inches.

Before using, spin the duster between your hands to open up the wool. Repeat after cleaning to shake out dust after use. When necessary, wash in warm, soapy water. When dry, spin duster handle to regain fullness. Lambswool attracts and retains dust: synthetics often do not.

Thanks for your question.
Sincerely,
Barbara
