  1. After the rain, you need to beware of mold

    The record-setting rains resulted in flooded streets, leaky roofs and flooded basements. More importantly, the aftermath of the water damage can have longer lasting impact on you and your family's health.

  2. Control the humidity in your home to stay cooler

    It isn't just the heat but also the humidity that makes us uncomfortable. That's why you feel more comfortable when it is 85 degrees with 45 percent humidity than on that same 85-degree day with 70 percent humidity.

  3. Tips to prep for a late-summer outdoor party

    If you listen to the weather in the summer, you will likely hear about those pop-up thunderstorms that can occur. But a party on your deck or patio with family or friends can also pop up quickly in the summer.

  4. MSU builds a greener campus we can learn from

    You hear a lot about green building these days, but like most things in the area of energy conservation, it takes time for such an initiative to become a common practice. MSU is taking the lead.

  5. Cool tips for saving energy during the summer

    Just like there are ways to keep your home warmer in the winter while lowering your energy costs, the same is true in the summer cooling season.

  6. Fill cracks in your concrete and mortar

    Whether you have a cement driveway or a brick home, you surely have some concrete or mortar cracks to deal with. If you hate looking at the cracks, you can fill them yourself if you use the proper method and products.

  7. Technology improves your home security options

    In summer, homeowners' thoughts often turn to home security to make sure they aren't burglarized while on vacation. But it's important to take protect your home even while you're in town.

  8. Insurance coverage crucial for your next move

    While getting organized to move will make things smoother and cheaper, one thing that is tough to control is something getting scratched or damaged during the moving process.

  9. Take it one space at a time when decluttering

    Most of us have a drawer in the kitchen where we throw receipts and other small items rather than storing them in the proper place. But some of us have taken the 'junk drawer' philosophy to too many other rooms in the house.
