Quincy business shares how they stay cool in indoor heat

During the summer, many people work outside for their jobs including road and construction crews, but there are people who work inside and still have to face the heat.

The staff at Concord Customer Cleaners in Quincy is familiar with working in a hot room. Steam powered from boilers is used to clean clothes, which can cause temperatures to rise. 

Owner Teresa Lockett tells WGEM, temperatures can reach 110 degrees. During the summer, she encourages her team to take plenty of water breaks and they use an intake and exhaust to keep air circulating.

"Sometimes it can be really busy, but staying busy really helps keep you mind off things," Lisa Lockett said.

She added wearing lite colored clothes helps keep cool during the summer. Staff will also come into work a few hours early to the hottest parts of the day.
