The Outer Banks It's not

The Outer Banks It's not just another wave, it's an experience. Wave How to Get Your Rental or Business Ready This Beach Season by Laura Bush Jenkins Y ou know it only takes a few seconds to make a great fi rst impression. As a responsible owner, you naturally sweep fl oors and restrooms to project a reputable business image. In a similar fashion, an adept landlord doesn’t put a health-conscious tenant in a smoke-fi lled environment. Out-of-town visitors and potential renters hold high standards when it comes comes to controlling and preventing mold. Virginia law requires landlords to provide suitable living space during mold remediation treatments if the damage is not the tenant’s fault. Negative publicity and potential liability are reasons property owners take a proactive approach before beach and vacation season. During dormant times, airfl ow changes and mold spores easily proliferate. Here’s how you can counter this and protect your property and its income-generating potential in time for beach season: - Start opening windows. If it’s safe, keep them open for 4 to 5 hours. Make sure kitchen and bathroom fans vent properly to the exterior instead of to the attic, garage, or foundation. -Clean and disinfect ceiling fans. Make sure to use an alternative to bleach, such as hospital-approved MOLD DEFENDER. The EPA not only confi rms bleach masks mold and may invigorate more growth if it continues to sit there. -Wash and treat decks. Dwelling Management Solutions has appropriate chemicals to safely and effectively treat a moldy deck. Make sure that after pressure washing, the area drys. -Inspect fl ooring and bathroom areas for tiny spots and begin disinfecting. -Consider installing gutters to keep water away. -Remove house plants and fi sh tanks, breeding grounds for mold. Just like pest control maintenance allows you to proactively address problems, a mold check helps you to take control of what’s happening and stop problems from spreading in a similar way. If you are looking for a way to make sure your rental or business is safe and prepared for public use, contact Dwelling Management Solutions for a specialized spring mold check up at 252 339 2489, or info@dwellsms.com.

I connected with amazing folks while enjoying the beautiful setting of the show in the heart of Manteo.” Artists wishing to participate in the New World Festival of the Arts can find an application online at DareArts DOT org/newworldfestivalofthearts.

Visitors often ask how that is possible since the museum is open six days a week for most of the year and every square inch of the building is alrea d y filled. Executive Director Carl Bornfriend smiles as he notes the challenges in making changes. “Since we are open only on weekends during the winter, we have fi ve days each week when we can tear things apart. We make adjustments, rearrange, add new items, and even create whole new exhibits. We close off spaces but also make it possible for visitors to see what’s happening. Sometimes it’s like watching puzzle pieces being reshuffl ed, reshaped and then put back — always interesting.” This winter the staff has actually built a longhouse in the museum. It has been a mammoth undertaking and involved fi nding new locations for the exhibits that were already in place. Some items were merged with displays in other parts of the building; some will be shifted to the pavilion on the museum nature trail, and some will be incorporated into the new village scene. That was just the fi rst step. Adding fl oor to ceiling cases, a dug out canoe, animal mounts, murals, and display items make it possible to offer visitors a thrilling experience. Plan to visit the museum this spring, sit inside the longhouse by a glowing fi re, and let your imagination take you back in time. The museum is located on Hatteras Island and open Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm until March 24th when it will return to the normal schedule of six days a week—open every day but Monday.
