Where You Live Matters - 06/24/12 01:53 PM
One of the most important aspects to consider when it comes to mold is the humidity or moisture in your home. Those of us who live in the South know that our climate is most often hot and wet. This produces a great chance that there is excess moisture within our homes, and anywhere there’s a high level of moisture, there is likely to be mold. Of course, the logical thing to do is to control the amount of moisture in the home. The amount of moisture required to produce mold, however, may not be great, and (1 comments)
Some Things about HEPA - 06/24/12 01:52 PM
Advertisers and merchandisers today use many terms that are never really defined or explained to sell the average consumer their products or services. One of the most interesting I think is the acronym HEPA which stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. Most people understand the word to refer to filters which are regarded as especially effective, but I feel reasonably sure that most buyers don’t realize that the HEPA filter systems had their beginnings in 1942 during the Manhattan Project, a secret project of the US War Department to gather atomic materials for a bomb. As the (1 comments)
Fenestration and Other Things I Didn’t Know about Windows - 06/19/12 09:16 PM
Recently I began to consider replacing some of the windows in my home. Since I live alone and am a totally uninformed handyperson, I went to the internet and asked, “When should I replace the windows in my home?” I found an absolute deluge of information answering my question and some articles including the word fenestration. It means any opening in a building like windows, doors, or skylights, etc. Not only that, but there is a National Fenestration Rating Council, a nonprofit organization which provides independent rating and labeling systems for energy performance products used to (1 comments)
I Know I Have a Problem, but… - 06/19/12 09:15 PM
Have you ever delayed getting a problem fixed around your house? What were your reasons? One huge factor causing people to procrastinate is uneasiness. Having or suspecting mold in your home seems to be the type of problem that creates questions, doubts, and concerns that lead homeowners to feel immobile and avoid taking the action that’s needed to find solutions to their mold problems. One fallacy about mold is that it won’t happen if your home is clean. Just as most of us would avoid telling neighbors the house has roaches, some feel ashamed to admit they (0 comments)
What’s on Top of Your Roof Matters - 06/11/12 07:12 PM
Are you considering building a home, buying a home, or selling the one you’re in? If you are, then the question of the roof is sure to come up. No one wants to purchase a home knowing that they’ll immediately have to repair or replace the roof. Likewise, if you’re selling, you’ll have to fix that old or damaged roof before you’ll be able to secure a buyer. The three key issues to consider when choosing a roof are the expense, maintenance required, and durability of the material you choose. There are many options to consider (2 comments)
Hole in your pocket or leak in your pipe - 06/11/12 07:11 PM
Recently in a large city not far from where I live, people began receiving water bills that were totally out of line and seemingly ridiculous. Some of them were well over $1000 for one month’s service. Of course residents complained—some to the municipality, some to the media, and most to their family, friends, and neighbors. One article I read gave statistics from the AAWA (American Water Works Association) that reported the possibility that a1/16″ leak could cause you to lose 970 gallons of water in a twenty-four hour period. They estimated the increase in your monthly (2 comments)
Why do they call insurance folks and realtors agents? - 06/07/12 08:28 AM
I have always wondered about this. Would the proper term not be sales rep? Insurance folks and realtors are both selling right? Could you kind folks help me undertand this please? Thank you, David Snell SnellExperts.com (6 comments)
Welcome to spring! - 06/05/12 08:23 PM
Winter in the South this year appears to be nearly over. People are getting out into their yards, planting flowers and gardens, and enjoying the sunshine; however, for some the season change brings something not at all pleasant. It brings asthma and allergies. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, one of every five people in the United States will be struck by asthma or allergies. The group also states that of the 20 million Americans who have asthma, fifty percent of them have asthma that is related to allergies. For some it may seem (1 comments)
Landscaping Your Yard - 06/05/12 08:22 PM
Many of us would love to have an artfully landscaped yard containing lovely blooms, constantly fragrant flowers, instant shade, and the sound of a bubbling water feature to help us enjoy the outdoors around our homes. Few of us, however, have the money—an estimated 5 to 15% of the value of the home, to invest to make this happen. There are also other circumstances that thwart our hopes for a garden paradise just outside the window. Some of these include the lack of time to invest in the project, the absence of competent gardening skills, and (0 comments)
