AMRE Update - Freight Changes

2022 Freight Changes

Posted On: Jan 4, '22

With the ongoing pandemic, our freight and logistics partners have had to adapt to ever changing and increased volumes. This has not only provided people across Canada with the opportunity to receive more efficient shipments, but with increased fuel costs, has challenged these companies to adjust their policies.

With this, AMRE Supply will be increasing our flat rate freight charge to $13.99 for those located within the Canadian Provinces. Territories will see no change.

This policy will come into effect starting January 13th, 2022.

For more detailed information, please see our Policy Change letter here.

We thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these changes.

Thank you

After the Alarm

What Happens After the Alarm Sounds?

Posted On: Oct 14, '21

We put a lot of focus into the preparations to avoid a fire - but what happens when you're caught in one?

It's important to prepare for all aspects of a home fire, especially with kids. Here are some tips direct from a Fire Chief to get found safely in a fire.

If your exits are blocked and you can't get out, making sure Firefighters know where you are is the top priority!
- Get to the lowest point in either a bedroom or a room with a window
- Close the door and place something along the bottom to prevent smoke from entering
- If there's a window that can be opened, open it. If it can't, use a blanket or pillows to break it and cover all the sharp edges.
- Having a flashlight and/or whistle available in kid's bedrooms is paramount for being found! Teach them to shine that flashlight out a window and blow their whistle as loud and long as they can. A house fire can be incredibly loud when burning so being louder is important.
- Lastly, Fire fighters can look big and scary, but a house fire is never the time for hide and seek. Teach kids to stay by the window, not under the bed or in a closet. It will make them easier to be found and easier to be rescued!

With these tips, and by listening to your local fire department, you can prevent dangerous situations and harm.

Sounds of Fire Safety

Do You Know the Sounds of Safety?

Posted On: Oct 7, '21

October is Fire Safety month and AMRE wants you, your family, and your business to be safe. We've put together our annual Fire Safety Flyer for you with helpful products and tips to master fire safety.

Do you know the sounds of safety?
Smoke Alarms
- A continued set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep—means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.
- A single “chirp” every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed.
- All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.
- Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit must be replaced.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms
- A continuous set of four loud beeps—beep, beep, beep, beep—means carbon monoxide is present in your home. Go outside, call 9-1-1 and stay out.
- A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be replaced.
- CO alarms also have “end of life” sounds that vary by manufacturer. This means it’s time to get a new CO alarm.
- Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit must be replaced.

For Tenants with Sensory or Physical Disabilities
- Install a bedside alert device that responds to the sound of the smoke and CO alarms. Use of a low frequency alarm can also wake a sleeping person with mild to severe hearing loss.
- Keep pathways like hallways and exits lit and free from clutter to make sure everyone can get out safely.
- Ensure emergency signage and backup lighting is in working order at all times.

When to Change Your Air Filter

When to Change Your Air Filter

Posted On: Aug 17, '21

Changing your air filter regularly is the best way to maintain the health of your lungs and your HVAC system. But how regular is regularly?

Depending on your home, occupancy, area, and more it can vary between 12 months and just 45 days!

A good rule of thumb is to check your filter every season, but here are some rough guidelines depending on your home.

Vacation Homes or Single Occupant Homes with no pets
Every 6 - 12 Months

Ordinary Suburban Homes with no pets
Every 90 Days

Home with 1 dog or cat
Every 60 Days

More than one pet or anyone with allergies
Every 20 - 45 Days

Maintaining your Air Filter is a great way to maintain both the appliances that move your air and the air itself! Find the air filter you're looking for with great deals - but time is running out! See the flyer here and start your journey to cleaner air.

Why Change Your Filter

Filtration Group IAQ Vendor Spotlight is here!

Posted On: Aug 3, '21

When was the last time you changed your Furnace Filter?
If it's been longer than a few months, you may be over due! Especially if you have allergies, asthma, or pets in the home. Changing your air filter can have a full range of benefits outside of just cleaning up your air, here are some of the top reasons to change it up:

1. Cut Down On Dust - Your HVAC system is a trap for collecting dust. If your filter is over filled, it could be letting more dust particles through. Cleaning the air filter allows it to grab more and keep it from re-entering your home.
2. Reduce Maintenance Costs - While it may not always lead to system failure, a dirty air filter can put unnecessary stress on your HVAC system, causing costly repairs down the road. Ensuring that only clean air is moving through is the best way to keep your home running smoothly.
3. Clogs Cost - An entirely clogged air filter won't just cause potential issues it will make your system work even harder day to day. This can increase the stress on both the HVAC system AND YOU - harder working systems mean higher energy bills.
4. A Healthy Filter is a Healthy You - Cleaning your filter is great for your heating and cooling, but also for your health. Dust, dander, and even mold are kept at bay by a clean air filter. All of these can affect your respiratory health, especially for those with underlying conditions or allergies. Keeping it clean is the best way to ensure the air your breathing is clear.

If you want to avoid these issues and more, Filtration Group is here to help! As our August Vendor Spotlight, the Filtration Group offers a wide variety of air filters to fit you and your HVAC system's needs.

d. Portable Air Conditioners are the easiest to get going!
2. Choose the Size:

3. Decide on your Energy Usage:
a. Finding an Air Conditioner that’s Energy Star approved can help keep your energy costs low.
b. Ensuring that you're using the proper sizing will also keep your Air Conditioner from working unnecessarily hard to cool the room.
4. Find a Comfortable Sound Level:
a. You can also sort our categories by Maximum Noise level. Choosing a lower decibel rating will mean a quieter Air Conditioner in your home.

With these in mind, you can choose the perfect Air Conditioner to keep your Summer cool!

Dangerous Chemistry

Always read your cleaning chemical's labels, and never mix bleach!

Posted On: Apr 1, '20

While keeping clean and disinfecting regularly used surfaces is important, using your cleaning products to their specifications is crucial.

Using the right chemical for the surface you're looking to clean, observing the dwell times, and most importantly - NOT mixing them.

Especially bleach or chemicals that contain bleach.

Bleach on it's own is already a highly toxic liquid, but mixing it with other chemicals can create dangerous and potentially deadly gases.
Here are some common mistakenly mixed home chemicals:

Bleach + Vinegar = Chlorine Gas
(Can irritate the eyes, skin, and even at low levels - cause permanent lung damage.)
Bleach + Ammonia = Chloramine Vapours
(can cause coughing, nausea, chest pain, or even pneumonia.)
Bleach + Rubbing Alcohol = Chloroform
(damages the nervous system, lungs, kidneys, liver, eyes, and skin. And can cause loss of consciousness)

As an added note:
Vinegar + Hydrogen Peroxide = Parecetic Acid
(Irritate and even damage your skin, eyes, throat, nose, and lungs.)

Do You Know the Dwell Time?

Find out and change your cleaning success for good!

Posted On: Mar 20, '20

Have you heard about Dwell Times?

They're an important part of sanitation routines that are often overlooked. If you're the type of person that thinks you an wipe bleach over everything and call it good - this may comes as a shock!

Dwell times can range from 10 seconds to up to 10 minutes depending on the chemical and only count for the time that the chemical is wet. Wiping away a disinfectant or sanitizer too soon can render it ineffective, and leave you with a falsely cleaned surface.

Spray Nine has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Get effective killing power with a dwell time under a minute. (30-45 seconds). Get it in 946ml spray bottles or 3.8 Litre jugs.

General Purpose Bleach has a recommended dwell time of 10 minutes for high strength dilutions (1:10), is readily available, and a powerful disinfectant.

Looking for the same bleach killing power but more convenient portioning and handling control? Try Dustbane UniTab tablets. With the same dwell time and power as bleach but a longer shelf life and less corrosion.

Use with the
Dustbane Sprayer for full and efficient application power - without a cord to hold you back.

AMRE Supply can help keep your janitorial carts stocked with powerful cleaners and safety products.
Providing your team with the tools they need to keep your business clean and confident.

ProFlo Complete Toilet Kits

Everything You Need to Upgrade Your Toilet in One Box

Posted On: Feb 11, '20

With February bringing in ProFlo as it's Vendor Spotlight you can find what you need to renew your bathroom - especially your toilets.

ProFlo makes it easy to find the right fixture for your home with Complete Toilet Kits. They include the Tank, Bowl, Seat, Closet Bolts, and Wax Ring - so installation is all out of one box.

Choose between a Round Bowl, Elongated bowl or ADA Elongated bowl; each with High Efficiency Gravity Flush Technology.

You can even replace your toilet yourself with these 10 steps.

1. Start by turning off the water and flushing to remove as much water from the insides as you can. You may want to use LiquiLock Gel , The Trunk or a large sponge to ensure there is no extra water that could spill out onto your floor.
2. Disconnect the water supply and remove the old toilet (starting with the tank bolts, tank, then bowl bolts and bowl.) Plug drain with a rag in the meantime to prevent any sewer gases.
3. Clean off the flange and check it for damage. Replace if need be.
4. Turn the new Toilet Bowl upside down on flattened cardboard or towel to prevent damage then place the wax ring evenly around the bowl flange.
5. Carefully life the toilet bowl, using your legs not your back, and align it with the Flange bolts.
6. Apply even pressure on the bowl (sitting on it works) and rock it side to side and front to back. This will ensure the wax seal is firmly in place. The Toilet should be firm to the floor.
7. Install the washers, nuts, and caps over the flange bolts, making them snug but not over tight - this could damage the china.
8. Install the tank-to-bowl-gasket, tank bolts with washers, and place the tank on the bowl. Tighten the tank nuts and make sure they are level.
9. Connect the water supply to the ballcock, hand tightening it. It is highly recommended you do NOT use channel locks.
10. Turn on the water, flush and check for any leaks. You may need to adjust the ballcock to proper water line height.

Protecting Yourself and Others

N95 Masks, Hand Sanitizer, and Stopping the Spread

Posted On: Jan 31, '20

With the recent Coronavirus outbreak, countries all over the world are preparing to keep themselves and the people around them safe. To protect your home and business, there are several things you can do.

The virus spreads via air by coughing or sneezing, personal contact, or contact with an infected surface or object followed by contact to the mouth, nose, or eyes. With this in mind, Face Masks, avoiding the sick, and ensuring to disinfect hands & surfaces are paramount to avoid contracting the virus.

Face Mask:
N95 Rated Respirator Masks offer more protection than traditional disposable masks and are designed to prevent 95% of small particles from entering the nose and mouth - when fit properly to the face. These masks are not designed for children or those with facial hair. Always follow the instructions when using a Particulate Mask for the maximum benefit.
Please Note: AMRE Supply is now SOLD OUT of N95 Masks.

Avoiding Spread:
If symptoms appear, it's time to call in for a sick day. Staying home and getting better is the best way to lessen the spread of any sickness, but especially the highly contagious. Ensuring that you are covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing then immediately washing your hands. If you have employees that show up to work sick, be prepared to send them home to avoid spreading any viruses.

Keep Clean:
Washing your hands with warm water and soap is the best defense against germs. As useful as Hand Sanitizer is - it should only be relied on when soap and water is not available. If you must use hand sanitizer, be sure that it is formulated with at minimum 60% alcohol; anything below 60% is ineffective. See these options for 70% alcohol formulas for higher effectiveness. Keeping surfaces clean is another important aspect to preventing the spread of illnesses, especially if they are frequently used by a multitude of different people / customers.

At the end of the day whether it's the flu, cold, or coronavirus -protecting those around us and maintaining our health should always be a top priority.
