Keeping Your Deck or Patio Clean After a Storm

Storm damage is a major problem for people in more ways than one. In addition to downed tree limbs and damaged siding or eaves, many people have decks or patios that are full of debris. While you want to get these areas as clean as possible, it’s important to avoid using cleansers or other items that may damage things further.

Who Should You Call?

A pressure washing company is usually your best solution. The top experts in this field use unique methods that provide a good clean, without causing further damage. Before you choose someone to do a power wash, make sure you find out more about the methods that they use.

Why Should You Avoid Traditional Power Washing?

Although effective, traditional power washing can cause unintended damage. Some traditional methods, if done incorrectly, are capable of causing gauges in deck material and concrete. You want to avoid these situations because the damage can be permanent.

Using a Safe Cleaning Method

One of the keys to safely cleaning a deck or patio is having the process start with a pre-soak material. This step uses a foam that gets embedded dirt out in a gentle way. The pressure wash phase follows next, effectively getting the dirt out. A protective coat helps seal out further dirt and grime.

How These Steps Help After a Storm

When a recent storm has involved flooding, it is likely that the flood waters contain bacteria. Pre-soak foam products for patio use help kill the bacteria, keeping your patio a healthy, safe place for gatherings. Because this method is gentle on plants, you don’t need to worry about damaging plants that are possibly already stressed from the weather. The protective coat will help avoid further damage.

When your patio or deck has some a lot of wear due to recent storms, a good cleanup is just what you need to get things back in order. You’ll enjoy having your favorite outdoor area looking just like new. Knowing that you will also be able to help prevent further damage is another good reason to consider these cleaning options.

Clean Your Home Like a Pro

If you want your home to be deep-down clean and fresh, but you don’t have the budget to hire a professional service, we have some good news for you. You can get your home clean like a pro, and it won’t take long with the right techniques and equipment.

Take a Top-Down Approach

Gravity ensures that everything will fall eventually, so you want to take a methodical approach when you’re cleaning. Dusting should always begin at the highest point, before you vacuum, and work your way down. The same goes for washing windows. Wet the thoroughly with a mild soapy solution, then either use a small window squeegee to go across the top, then use a downward motion across the surface. If you’re using a cloth, use a circular motion from left to right, top to bottom.

Don’t overlook places like ceiling fans and the tops of doors and shelving. Just because you can see it, doesn’t mean the dust isn’t there.

Use Environmentally Responsible Products

Harsh chemicals don’t; necessarily clean better, and they will affect the quality of your indoor environment. Natural cleaners like baking soda and white vinegar are just as effective, and they’re gentle on your surfaces. They also act as a natural disinfectant. Do not use these products on wood or other porous materials, however. For daily dusting, a plain soft cotton cloth is fine, for cleaning an conditioning, use an oil. You can make a great, natural polish by combining equal parts olive oil and lemon juice, and apply it with a soft cloth.

Invest in Quality Supplies and Equipment

As far as vacuums and other cleaning equipment, this is a place to invest more money for quality, if possible. Cheaper equipment that’s low quality may not do as thorough a job, and it has a much shorter useful life. Brooms should be angled, with split bristles at the end. Natural straw or a man-made fiber are more a matter of taste than function. Sponge mops are absorbent, and provide friction than the old string mops; just make sure that you buy the kind with a detachable head the can be washed and sterilized.

Microfiber dust mops are a great addition to your cleaning supply cabinet. They protect surfaces from scratches during cleaning, they’re absorbent and the last a long time; some reports state that a good-quality microfiber will last through 500 washings. That’s a good ROI on your cleaning investment.

How To Get The Very Best Energy Plan For Your Money

If you are the owner of your own home, you should already be aware of just how difficult it is to manage all of the various expenses that come with being in such a position of heavy responsibility. There are all sorts of bills that need to be paid, from homeowner’s insurance to property fees. The last thing you need to do is add on a whole slew of charges for services that you rarely, if ever, make use of. This is why it’s so important to get the best possible deal for your money when it comes to energy services.

Taking The Needs Of Your Spouse And Family Into Full Consideration

When it comes to making sure that you get the best plan for your home or business, there are a number of considerations that must be kept in mind at all times. For example, it’s a good idea to consider just how much time you actually spend in your home. If you are a bachelor without a wife and children to consider, it may be a good idea for you to spend as little money as possible on energy, since you are rarely at home anyhow.

On the other hand, if you do have the needs of a family to consider, it’s important to get a full and accurate picture of just how much energy is being consumed in your home on a daily basis. For example, you can read the energy meters and gauge their progress on a daily basis, in order to chart the times when energy usage costs the most. Or you could do it the easy way, and make use of the Internet in order to compare and contrast the services of various providers until you come upon the energy plan that works best for your specific needs.

How To Go About Getting The Best Energy Services Plan

When it comes time to find a new energy plan, there is a wealth of information available on the Internet that can help you make all of the necessary comparisons in order to arrive at the deal that best suits your budget. The very best energy provider will be the one that is most honest and straightforward regarding the use and cost of their services. Use your freedom of choice to find the one that you will be best served by.

Why Do Basements Leak?

Anything can go wrong with just about any component of a home, including the basement. In fact, leaky basements tend to be a common problem in households across the country.

Pressure Created by Water in the Surrounding Soil

This is by far the most common reason for basement leakage, and comes in two forms:

Hydrostatic Pressure – Water is present in the ground everywhere, even in dry spots like the Southwest. The level at which this ground water is found is referred to as the “water table.” When heavy rain or snowmelt happens, water is absorbed by soil near the surface.

When the surface soil gets saturated, the water that is not absorbed causes the water table to rise, thereby creating hydrostatic pressure against the home’s foundation that can force water into the basement and create leaks. In these situations, many times a polyurethane injection system can rectify the problem.

Lateral Pressure – The soil that surrounds a home’s foundation between the surface and the footings can absorb water. While certain types of soils (like sand) drain rather quickly and don’t absorb that much water, others (like clay soil) don’t drain as well and usually absorb quite a bit of water.

When the soil expands as a result of this absorption, it creates lateral pressure against the foundation wall, and can damage it and create leaks in the basement.

What Does Deregulation Mean to You?

Texas Senate Bill 7 was approved in 2002, granting independent power supply companies admission to the state’s energy market. The bill established a committee to oversee the project, and guidelines were established to allow the market to open in phases. Today, many areas of the state are deregulated, and that means consumers now have a choice when it comes to the company supplying their energy. They also have a choice when it comes to the type of energy they want to consume. If you live in a deregulated area or your area may open to competition soon, keep reading to see what this new development means for your budget and your lifestyle.

You Get to Keep Your Energy Distributor

The utility company that has produced and distributed electricity in your area for generations isn’t entirely cut out of the deal when you decide to switch to a competing service like Reliant Texas or Stream Energy. While you will start receiving energy produced by the supplier of your choice, your utility company will still maintain and operate the grid that delivers your energy.
This means that you can switch to an electricity supplier with more affordable rates without changing the reliability of your service. In fact, you shouldn’t notice any difference in the consistency and strength of your power once you make the switch.

Competition Empowers Consumers

When energy companies held monopolies over the market, they had no incentive to offer the most affordable rates possible. They weren’t even driven to maintain their equipment, ensure that their plants operated efficiently, and invest in green technology because consumers had no alternative but to accept their services despite their lack of responsibility to the environment and the customer. Deregulation turns all of that around by bringing in competitors willing and able to supply consumers with higher quality and more affordable energy on demand.
This means that you can now enjoy cleaner energy from better production facilities, and you often get a much lower price when switching to a competitor. You now have more power, and you get to vote with your loyalty to one chosen service provider.

No Limitations
You also aren’t limited to electricity now that Texas providers are investing heavily in green energy. Consider solar and wind power as two alternatives growing in popularity and dropping in price year by year.

Why Fiber Optics Internet Makes Sense In Florida

Although there are a lot of different high-speed internet choices available, the climate and conditions unique to Florida mean that using traditional lines to push high speed internet can result in occasional service interruptions and delays.

So whether you are a consumer or a business it makes sense to look into FIOs or fiber optic service because the installations of fiber throughout Florida are meant to be impervious to local weather conditions. And after all, robust and consistent internet service will definitely save you time and money.

In addition, fiber optic Internet through providers like Clearwater Internet service is capable of reaching speeds that most competing services can not come close to. In some cases, there are guaranteed speeds of over 500 Mbps, which gives customers the luxury of running multiple instances of high-definition video and allowing a large family to all use the internet simultaneously at a very high speed.

Here are some additional benefits of choosing fiber optics in Florida:

Last mile security: If your provider offers Wi-Fi to your home or business, there is always a chance that there will be hackers trying to take over that Wi-Fi connection in order to harvest data. The same thing could be said about some DSL connections, which often feature a recognizable, localized IP address as a gateway. In some affluent communities, hackers have learned to recognize which addresses serve which communities and have targeted the areas with the most income with brute force password attacks. With fiber optics, the technology is such that it is very difficult to intercept your data while it is in transit. Moreover, it is almost impossible for would-be hackers to break into the lines upstream from your location to siphon off data.

Multiple services: Because your connection can carry a lot of data at high speeds, it is possible for providers to offer you phone services and television services over the same connection, making it very convenient and cost-effective for you to choose to use fiber optic high-speed Internet as part of a bundle. Most bundles heavily discount one or more services when you sign up.

Multiple devices: When you sign up for fiber optic Internet service, you also typically can use either your tablet or your smartphone to access your high speed connection. In some cases, if you add television service, you can also log into your television account remotely and stream movies and television from anywhere in the world.
