Create Atmosphere with Linens


Event planning is exciting. You’re pulling all the pieces together to celebrate with loved ones. But let’s face it. Event planning is also hard work. At Action Rentals, we’re here to help. Our experienced event personnel have years of success in helping event planners and hosts choose just the right items for their events.

One of the key decisions for any event is the choice of linens. Like much of the event planning process, linen selection is very subjective, and it’s focused on aesthetic appeal. At Action Rental, we carry a broad selection of colors and styles. Whether you want a solid or a pattern, traditional white or a color to complement your other decorations, we can help.

If your event has a color scheme you would like to match or complement, please bring some examples of pieces featuring your chosen color for your linen selection appointment. If you are earlier in the selection process, or if there isn’t a set theme, please bring along items with colors, textures, patterns, etc. that appeal to you. These could be magazine pages, postcards, photographs… anything that really speaks to your sense of color.

With a little insight into your preferences, our team can show you options that coordinate or complement your selections. The important part is that the decision is always yours. We can provide as much or as little input as desired.

So as you prepare for your next event, please keep in mind that the professionals at Action Rental are ready to make your event unforgettable! Stop by our showroom at 1861 Eastman Road, visit our website or call us at 423-246-5181.

Brrrr… It Is Cold Outside


Brrr… it is cold outside! While a chill in the air can be nice,  Action Rentals reminds everyone that too much cold can damage your home if precautions aren’t in place. Cold weather can cause the pipes in your walls, attic, under the floor, or in unheated parts of your home to freeze. As water freezes, it expands and this added pressure can cause pipes to burst or crack, leading to expensive repairs. Fortunately, there are preventative measures you can take to greatly reduce your risk of frozen pipes, thus keeping your plumbing lines thawed and in good working condition.

  1. To help protect the pipes in your exterior walls, you can simply open the cabinet doors at the sinks that are served by the exterior wall pipes. This will allow the heated interior air to warm and help protect the pipes. You can also place a portable heater a safe distance from the wall and any other combustible material to aid in this process. Always follow manufacturer guidelines for heater placement.
  1. Running water can also help keep your pipes from freezing. It’s easier for standing water to freeze, so by keeping a small trickle of water running you’re your faucet, you help prevent your pipes from freezing. When you run your water, run both the hot and cold water. This warmer water also keeps your pipes warmer and helps to keep them thawed. Also try and run the water from the far end of the house. This helps to protect the main water lines.
  1. For longer lasting solutions, consider using expanding insulating foam to fill any voids in the interior walls. Carefully follow the instructions provided when you purchase this foam. Make sure you calculate the approximate volume of space between the studs to keep from using too little or too much foam. If overused, expanding foam can bow or crack drywall.
  1. Utilize insulating material, such as the molded foam pipe wraps, to place around any exposed pipes in your attic, basement, crawl space or other unheated areas.

As always, before you start any home improvement or preventive maintenance project, carefully review all safety information provided with your purchases. Take careful steps to properly shut down any equipment that may be damaged due to shutting off water supplies. If you need any equipment for this or other home maintenance jobs remember to contact Action Rentals Renting– the smart way to get things done!
