Chilly Weather

Hope everyone is enjoying this blustery crisp fall day!

As much as we love fall weather, it is also pipe freezing season. It is very important to protect the pipes of your house from freezing. Check this out for details of what can happen when pipes freeze.

We all want to save money anywhere we can, but cutting corners with heat in the fall and winter season is NOT the answer!

Red Cross Donations

With the recent hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes, it seems as if mother nature is putting our strength to the test. During this time people can begin to feel hopeless, gloomy, and even despondent. It is during this time that we all need to come together and help those in need.

Graf is proud to announce that for the month of October, we will be a drop spot for everyday necessities such as shampoo, soap, trash bags, toothbrushes/toothpaste, baby wipes, clothing, etc. We will also be collecting monetary donations. We will have a drop boxes in the office for these donations. All donations will be brought to Red Cross at the end of the month.

Lets help make a difference! Call (509)697-4874 for any questions.

Air Quality

It’s no secret, the air quality the past few weeks has not been good. Although some people might enjoy the smell of the smoke, it certainly is not something to take lightly.

The smoke in the air can be extremely dangerous to one’s health. There is a very large range of health problems that can occur including burning eyes, runny nose, trouble breathing, and even chronic heart and lung diseases. Some people are at a higher risk due to their age or pre-existing health condition. Elders, young children, teenagers, pregnant woman and people with diabetes are going to be the most affected by the poor air quality.

To get more details about the symptoms of breathing in the smoky air, check out this website! Air now also includes many helpful tips to ensure your health and safety is not compromised during the fire season.
