New bathroom - great experience

20 Sep 2017

Chosing a company to take on the responsibility to remodel your bathroom is risky business. There are many great comanies out there, but some really lousy ones as well, and you won't know for sure which kind you're dealing with until you're well into the project and there's no turning back.

Not easy to chose company

We decided to remodel our bathroom last winter and checked with friends if they had any recommendations. We also Googled  - of course - but it's not easy to tell which companies are good and which ones are bad based on there websites. Not even online reviews are trustworthy. A friend of ours mentioned Kerkinni & Company Remodeling - and with great enthusiasm as well. They are situated in Minneapolis and offer bathroom remodeling at just prices.

We decided to take a chance with the recommended company and we haven't regretted our decision once. They are exptremely service-minded and frendly; punctual and meticulous; and they use top quality products in every detail. They communicated well with us and we felt we had some level of control throughout the project - which is rare. 

Our favorite room

Our bathroom is now our favorite room in the house and in a perfect world we could hire the same company to remodel our entire house, but they are specialized in bathrooms and perhaps that's why they can be so good.

As a small conclusion: If you need to remodel your bathroom in Minneapolis I can definitely recommend Kerkinni & Company. You will be amazed!

24 Feb 2017

Excessive sweating is something that about 1-3% of the world population suffers from, it is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis and can be somewhat troublesome when it comes to social interaction. For many suffering from this condition a simple thing like holding hands with your loved one or shaking hands with someone you just met is a huge hurdle to overcome and therefor is avoided as much as possible. Some of us who has the problem with palms that are wet of sweat are trying to hide it and always carry tissues to wipe them discretely, hoping no one will notice it. 

Solution is simpler than you would think!

If you discuss this problem with your doctor it is not always it is take seriously and many times the public health care will not have a solution for you. There is however a way to solve the problem, and you can do it at home! The method is called Iontophoresis and it works very well in treating excessive sweating in your hands or on your feet. The method uses an electric current that is applied to the skin and it will effectively stop the sweat from exiting through your skin. The protein in your skin coagulates and creates a barrier and you will notice the difference already after a few treatments. Depending severity of the problem you may need to treat yourself on a daily basis in the beginning to gradually decreasing the treatment to be weekly.
