      It’s Time to Come Clean

      It’s Time to Come Clean

      Dust-Free, Dirt-Free, Come Summer, Winter and Beyond

      PV solar panels are hailed for being relatively low-maintenance for home-owners. But with drastic weather shifts, rain, wind, bird droppings, and dust everywhere all the time, you could experience more than a dirty solar panel. Your panel’s ability to generate power could literally be compromised. Thankfully, you don’t need to fork out thousands on professional PV solar panel cleaners. Here are three simple steps to clean your PV solar panels yourself, today..

      #1: Gentle Brushing

      Start by loosening visible debris on the surface using a soft brush.

      #2: Spray Away

      Whip out the garden hose to blast away grim. Avoid high-pressure sprayers which could cause damage to your solar panel and, in turn, your investment.

      #3: Soft Cloth Wipe 

      Cover a long-handled wiper with a soft cloth to scrub those hard-to-reach corners and prevent grime from accumulating.

      Don’t forget to only work on your solar panel when it’s overcast – hot panels can really ruin your day (and your skin…) and always wear high-quality coveralls like ours here at Kolossus workwear to keep safe on the job…and on your solar panels. How are you keeping your panels clean and grime-free? We’d love to hear your own tips and tricks for safe and effective solar panel cleaning. Start a conversation below!

      1. The Garden Is Just Another Room – It’s useful to think of the garden as you would a room in your house. A lot of the same principles apply, such as designing a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, designing within the limitations of the space, etc.

      2. Location, Location, Location! It’s important to understand where the most sun will be, where the most shade will be, and which plants will be most exposed to the wind and rain. This will help you decide where the plants should go, based on their needs.

      3. Small Beginning For Big Endings – For the best results, take your time and go slow. Start with a single bed and immerse yourself in the process. This will help you feel less overwhelmed when it comes to tacking the bigger steps.

      4. Choose The Center Piece – Every garden has some grand feature that brings the entire garden together. A beautiful tree, a stunning water feature, an impressive sculpture – it’s up to you, but let the space guide towards a natural spot for the center piece to go.

      Did you ever think how different places look with plants and flowers? It doesn't matter where you live, gardening is always a good idea to give spaces other looks and make them come to life. And the best part is that you don't have to be a professional in the field to build your own garden, with these 6 basic tips you'll be ready to start a garden that actually grows:

      1. Location, location, location! Choose your site very carefully. It should be somewhere you’ll see regularly, with enough light and shade for the kinds of plants you plan to grow.

      2. Water is life. Plant your new garden near a good water source.

      3. Lay the groundwork. Your starting point is to provide nutritious, well-drained soil.

      4. Make sure they match. The plants you choose to grow must match the growing conditions. Think about the amount of sun and rain you get, as well as which plants grow best in your area.

      5. It’s a date. Do some digging to find out your average first and last frost dates. If you plant your plants too early or too late in the season, you could lose before you’ve even started.

      6. Give your plants a boost. Use high-quality plant food to give your plants that extra surge of nutrition they need to keep them incredibly healthy.

      The simplest starting point for selecting interior paint colors is to think about the colors you love. From here, you can see how variations on these colors will work in your interior spaces. Social media sources like Instagram and Pinterest will give you a wide range of decorating options that are likely to inspire you – so take advantage of these platforms!

      Once you have enough colors to choose from, you will need settle on a color scheme. With the use of a color wheel, you can easily see what different combinations of colors will look like together. And don’t underestimate how interesting traditionally “bland” colors can be. You can dress up more neutral colors by adding a pastel-colored ceiling or even a striped wall to create some vibrancy.

      You might also find that the environment outside your home has colors that will work inside. Whether it’s the greens of lush foliage or the blue hues of beach living, you can create an intimate connection with the outdoors just by using your colors cleverly.

      Once you’ve finalized your palette, it’s important to sample your paint first. You need to be sure that the color you imagine will actually look like that on the wall – so do your homework to avoid being disappointed.

      If you’ll be doing the painting yourself – DIY style – don’t start without the perfect long-sleeved coverall and shop our eclectic range today!

      Make Murals As Public Art

      Make Murals As Public Art

      Public murals are the “art of the people” because they make art accessible to everyone. Most public murals carry messages that are important to the community in which they’re found, often containing inspirational or touching scenes that uplift people on a daily basis.

      Murals can be painted on many different materials, including canvas, cement, brick walls, art boards, or wood, and for each material the paint needs to be applied differently. Today, murals are mostly painted using oil or water-based media.

      If you plan on painting a wall yourself, these are the steps you should follow:

      Step 1: Clean the wall and apply a coat of primer.

      Step 2:
      Draw your mural design using the grid method, with a grid on the design and a matching one on the wall to trace it accurately.

      Step 3:
      Use quality acrylic mural paints with a matte finish.

      Step 4:
      Apply a final coat of protective clear varnish.

      Our durable coveralls are perfect for this kind of outdoor, hands-on fun! We have long-sleeved and short-sleeved options to keep you comfortable throughout the process!
