  3. Hi Rick - I've read a lot of your posts and think you're the right guy for my question.  Hopefully.  :)

    We live in Northern Virginia and moved into a newly built house last year.  We have red cedar shake siding.  The shingles were not primed before staining and the house was stained with a light gray semi-transparent stain (Sikkens WIllow).  After about 2 months we saw significant extractive tannin bleeding (see picture attached).  Now that's about a year has passed, the only areas where we are still seeing the tannins are in the covered areas (front porch, screened porch, etc.) - the rain and sun must have taken care of the rest of the house.  My question is, what should we do now?  Should we try and clean with oxalic acid?  If the cleaning works, should we leave as is or oil prime and re-stain with the semi-transparent?  Since the areas are covered, I am not as concerned about the stains matching perfectly as they already look darker because they are in the shade.  I would really appreciate your thoughts.  Thanks so much!  Kara


  4. Home cleaning services are required by everyone. Now a days, people have busy schedule and they don't have enough time to deal with cleaning activities. In that case if they hire professional house cleaning services, they not only help with deep cleaning services but also save time and efforts of the clients. Whether it is about carpet cleaning, bathroom cleaning or kitchen cleaning services one can take benefits of all. https://www.maidpro.com/blog/home-tlc-nooks-and-crannies/

    Here is a google search to show you the unit. It is installed on the outlet side of the pump so that when you switch to low pressure soap nozzle, it will engage the unit to start sucking soap into the line and mix it with the water flowing through. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=downstream+injector Rod

  11. I run a restaurant and I’m the head chef of the restaurant. It is not that big, I couldn’t rent a bigger space. We cook most of the food from my home. For that, I have remodeled my kitchen. It is a big space, bigger than my hallway and rooms combined. After cooking that from my home I deliver that to my restaurant. All the efforts that we put are clearly reflected in the kitchen floors, sink. Most of the kitchen space is tarnished and stained. The surfaces have lost the texture. Sinks have lost their luster and the kitchen floor have stained. I am thinking of doing a thorough clean up of the kitchen using house cleaning services in Mississauga. So I am shutting the restaurant for a few weeks so that I can clean my kitchen. Don’t know how long it's going to take or how effective it's going to be. I wish I could get the kitchen back as new as possible. I do clean the kitchen after the restaurant is closed every day. But the hard stains of the spices and tar of the oil and fire has left the place dull. Is cleaning services the best option for this? Is it effective in removing all the tough stains from the kitchen floor? Do you guys have any other ideas? Help is appreciated.
  12. Gutters

    There are a number of them that people use and most find best according to their desired method of application and removal. F-13 Gutter Grenade is one. Gutter Butter is another I am aware of. The rest found in a search are mostly 'consumer' grade. Perhaps others may chime in ... Rod

  15. I realize this is 9yr old thread but, in a general sense, chemical composition and first aid needs to known prior to using any chemical. After injury it is often to late. White Ox is extremely caustic. Composition: Oxalic Acid, Ammonium Fluoride, and Hydrogen Fluoride If you wish to find the ingredients used in any product just search the commercial name + MSDS. https://white-ox.com/xcart/WHITE-OX Rust Remover Liquid 32oz SDS.pdf

  20. Hi Gang!! Myself and some pals I met on the internet have created an unholy mess of the Axminster carpet in the spare room ☺️Much to the annoyance of her indoors! 8 of us were wrestling in ‘chocolate sauce’ and it’s now encrusted in the thick pile ☹️. How can I get this offensive substance out?!? 🤜🏿 We barely notice at the time, as two members had a cardiac arrests, but the bread knife certainly did! Amyway muggins here needs to get it clean ASAP, to say it’s pungent would be an understatement ☺️.
