Stay Cool this Summer!

Sometimes it can feel like it’s impossible to stay cool in Oklahoma City during the summer. The Oklahoma City movers at All My Sons have the best tips for you to stay cool this summer. Keep reading to find out more.

Cotton Sheets

The best way to stay cool at night during the summer is by using linens made of lightweight cotton. Cotton sheets are breathable and promote the ventilation and airflow in your bedroom. You will be so much cooler sleeping on cotton sheets than on satin, silk and polyester sheets. Save those for the cooler nights.

Take Advantage of Natural Light

The summer means it usually stays light until eight or nine at night. Try to avoid using your lightbulbs as much as you can. Even if you use the environmentally-friendly CFLs, they still give off heat.

Take a Cool Shower

When you’re spending a lot of time outside, you are going to get sweaty and want to shower. It may sound obvious, but our Oklahoma City movers recommend taking a cool shower to really help keep your body temperature down.

Hydrate

It’s so important to stay hydrated during the summer months. Drinking water helps keep your body temperature down and is more effective than applying cold items to your exterior.

Set Your Fan Counter-Clockwise

By setting your fan counter-clockwise, you are pushing the cool air down. During the warm summer months, you want to have as much cool air circulating through your house as possible.

The zoo makes for a nice day outside in Oklahoma City. The zoo is located just northeast of downtown, near Lincoln Park.

Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum

This museum and memorial was raised in honor of the people affected by the bomb that decimated the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in April 1995. The museum starts with a history of terrorism in the United States and gives visitors a chronological tour of the experience. The tour ends with an exhibit about hope to display the community’s strength. Locals recommend visiting this museum at night because the lighting makes it a unique experience.

Bricktown

Bricktown got its name because of the red brick buildings that first appeared at the turn of the 20th century. The entertainment district in Oklahoma City, is an area is filled with restaurants, bars, shops, hotels and the Cox Convention Center. The Bricktown Canal runs through the area and you can enjoy a ride on a water taxi.

 


Now that you are moving, it’s a great idea to de-clutter and organize a yard sale. This helps you in two ways: less clutter and more money to put towards setting up your new home. Of course, you can sell online or donate, but since it’s Summer, why not have the perfect Summer yard sale? All My Sons Moving & Storage of Oklahoma City is here to tell you how to have the perfect yard sale!

Once you have picked an official moving day, you should start getting the word out about your yard sale. To draw attention to your yard sale, post, post, post! Now that so many events are created on social media, use Facebook and Instagram to get your friends, family and co-workers to your yard sale. You can also put signs around your neighborhood and post on Craigslist.

If you have kids, you can let them get involved. They can help you separate and organize items, and they can eve set up a lemonade stand to make their own extra dollars. That way you and your guests will be refreshed all day and the kids can feel like they participated too!

A good tip when having a summer yard sale is price everything as you go and even add a description to each item, if you can. This works best with clothing. Use this as a selling technique to get people’s attentions.

Once you have your yard sale, you are ready to start packing! The Oklahoma City movers at All My Sons offer the best packing services in town to ensure that your move goes smoothly and stress-free.

 


Whether you have just moved to or are moving to Oklahoma City, this is the perfect time to do Summer cleaning! All My Sons Moving & Storage in Oklahoma City has the best Summer cleaning tips and tricks for your new home.

Double Up on Doormats

If you don’t have a doormat on both the inside and outside of your door, you should. You’ll be able to trap most of the dirt by using the two mats, but if they’re too dirty, they won’t do their job! Hose them off and air-dry them.

Shine Your Stainless Steel

Give your stainless-steel appliances the boost they deserve! Use a microfiber cloth with a solution of 1 teaspoon dish detergent and 1 quart hot water to get rid of those fingerprints.

Clean Your Broom

Just like your doormats, your broom must be clean to do its job. You can clean the dust bunnies out of your broom by vacuuming it or swish the broom in warm soapy water.

Wash Your Whole Bed

Although you wash your linens every week, the pillows and comforter get overlooked. Take the opportunity to do a thorough cleaning and clean those guys.

Clear Out Vents

The vents in your house can collect so much dust. Don’t let the dust keep circulating through your house, grab a brush with soft bristles to clean your vents.

Oklahoma City movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage report on Thursday, February 16, Oklahoma City residents showed their support for a national demonstration. The national protest, called “A Day Without Immigration” was aimed squarely at the latest presidential efforts to crack down on illegal and legal immigration. OKC residents joined in on the protest, to express that immigrants matter when it comes to the economy of the United States.

Businesses everywhere closed, while those in support of the demonstration rallied in various cities like Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, and even parts of Washington D.C. Grocery stores, food trucks, coffee shops, and other local businesses were shut down for the day.

In the Oklahoma City area, businesses such as Taqueria Sanchez, Tacos Sibilia, La Oaxaquena Bakery, and The Feria Latina Supermarket had their doors closed as well. Foreign born individuals (American citizens, green card holders, and those working illegally) are younger and tend to take jobs in fast growing fields like restaurants, hotels, and stores, which is why primarily these types of industries showed their support.

Brenda Hernandez, the vice president of operations and community relations at Tango Public Relations in Oklahoma City said nearly 30 businesses were closed on Thursday, from grocery stores to restaurants and even automobile dealers.

A Day Without Immigration aims to prove how the newest deportation sweeps of the immigrant population will be affecting millions of families, and business owners all over the nation. Currently, foreign born workers account for 56 percent of the increase in U.S. employment in the last ten years, per the Labor Department.

Once a year, the residents of Oklahoma City get together to perform the Point in Time, an annual census of the city’s homeless population. In the early hours of Thursday morning, volunteers gathered and canvassed the city and known homeless camps had been reported.

The homeless census is carried out by the Homeless Alliance, the Coalition to end poverty, and a few other government agencies including nonprofit and religious groups. Once all the data has been collected, the results are sent to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Oklahoma City residential movers report that according to the Point in Time 2016 statistics, the city’s homeless count increased by approximately 16 percent. Advocates estimate that the homeless population in Oklahoma City for the year is 4-5 times more than what is found in just one night. With this estimate, the city’s homeless population is actually between 6,044 and 7,555 last year.

All My Sons accounts the increase in homelessness to a few different factors, including loss of jobs in the oil and gas industry and the temporary freeze on Housing Choice vouchers, known as Section 8. The executive director of the Homeless Alliance, Dan Straughan, believes there will be a similar increase in this year’s census with last year’s factors still affecting homelessness.

In addition to the already mentioned factors, high rate of occupancy in rental properties across Oklahoma City means that landlords can be more selective about their tenants, making it difficult for those with bad credit or a criminal history to find housing.

While the results of the census won’t be available for months, residents of Oklahoma City can expect to see an increase among unsheltered homeless people and homeless families with children. If you are in need of an Oklahoma City residential moving company, call All My Sons today!
