Perk Up Your Parks!



Get the Perfect Park with Bike Racks, Benches, and More.

Posted On: Jul 8, '20

Parks are a haven for people wanting to get outside within the convenience of the city, but an unkempt park can easily turn a peaceful picnic into a disaster. Let AMRE Help you find the right pieces you need to keep up your perfect park.

Bike Racks
You have the best bike trails, but where can bikers store their bikes for a quick stop into a shop or run around a playground? Bright and sturdy, with a variety of different shapes to suit your needs, Frost offers the solution. Choose from single pole 'Stop' style, Surf Style, or Linguini style - all available in bright colours or black.

Benches
Benches are essential for providing a comfortable place for visitors to rest and take in the beauty of your park. From feeding pigeons, to supervising playtime, to just enjoying the world - a good bench is all you need. Choose from 4' to 6' long benches in colours to match your bike racks!

Doggy Stations
Whether you're off-leash or on, dogs and parks just go together. Encourage responsible dog ownership with Dogipot waste receptacles, signs, and replacement bags. Strategically placed, these signs and resources remind dog owners to clean up after their pets and dispose of the mess in a safe manner. Make your message and desire for a clean park known!

Waste Bins
Nothing ruins a nice park like the presence of trash. A well placed waste bin makes it easy for visitors to properly dispose of their disposables, and with the Frost Stingray series - will match along with the rest of your park's features.

With a good combination of amenities and sanitary solutions, your park can be the sanctuary every city needs!

Doktor Doom Nest Killer



Don't Let Wasps Ruin Your Summer!

Posted On: Jun 16, '20

Finding a Wasp or Hornets nest around your home or business can be stressful, so removing these nests before they become too large is a large part in keeping your outdoors safe.

Here are some tips to get the best results when removing a wasp/hornet nest yourself.

1. Find a propelled Wasp or Hornet killer. This will allow you to stand at a safer distance when removing them. Check out Doktor Doom's Supercharged jet foam wasp & hornet killer, or wasp & hornet nest annihilator.
2. Choose the best time. Wasps/Hornets are more likely to be back in their nests and inactive an hour after sunset, or an hour before sunrise. These are the best times to apply the spray.
3. Do not spray from a downwind position. Optimal conditions are still air, however in the case of wind it is best to stand up wind.
4. Refer to your spray of choice for appropriate distance to stand away from the nest and shoot the product so it completely covers the opening and outer sides of the nest.
5. Do not go to remove the nest right away, some time may be needed in order for the spray to work it's way through and kill all inhabitants. Additional applications may be required if you notice wasps or hornets still moving around the nest, but once you are confident they are gone, the nest can be destroyed.

Your Summer shouldn't be held back by the threat of angry buzzing, with Doktor Doom you can have the confidence you need to get back outside!

Beat the AC Rush!



Find the Right Air Conditioner For Your Home!

Posted On: May 5, '20

Summer is incoming! The time to beat the rush for cool, comfortable air is now - with Frigidaire's Home Comfort Collection of Air Conditioners. There's something to fit any room of your home, and here's what to watch for when choosing the perfect Air Conditioner.

1. Installation Difficulty:
a. Depending on your handiness with tools and a DIY attitude, you have different options for which Air Conditioner you'll get the most use out of for the least effort.
b. Generally speaking, Built-In Air Conditioners take the most work as these need to be built into a hole in your wall.
c. Window Mounted Air Conditioners are easier to install, but require an appropriately sized window (or window side curtains.)
d. Portable Air Conditioners are the easiest to get going!
2. Choose the Size:
a. Figure out the area that you need to cool. You can do this by measuring the room's width and length in feet, the multiplying those two numbers together to get the square footage. Once you have this, you can shop for the right sized Air Conditioner.
b. You can sort our Air Conditioner category by either BTU or Square Footage. Both of these are directly related to how large your space is.
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.
