  7. Worried about the health of your loved ones? Lung cancer, caused by the inhalation of the radioactive gas, radon, is claiming almost 21,000 lives every year! This colorless, odorless, invisible gas sneaks into your home without you even noticing! Radon enters through gaps in suspended floors, construction joints, cracks in solid floors, cracks in walls, cavities inside walls and gaps around service pipes. Once in your basement or any part of your home, this gas slowly becomes more and more concentrated, harming you and your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a level of 4 picocuries of radon per liter (pCi/L) is the Action Level. Any radon levels above this are dangerous and you need to take immediate action to mitigate radon in such a scenario. You can test radon levels yourself, but getting expert help is a wiser choice, as professionals offer radon mitigation services if required. Stop taking risks! Simply contact PA DEP (Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection) certified radon mitigation specialists for a radon inspection of your home. If you are wondering, “Why does Pennsylvania have such a high concentration of radon,” the answer probably lies in the fact that the state has unique geology – distinctive soil and rocks! According to very recent findings, the rise in radon levels in the state may have a connection with the fracking activities, although this is yet to be confirmed. Fracking is the process of industrial development by which water is used to extract natural gas and oil from shale plays (formations). Whats your opinions ? let me know
  8. We just renovated our home. It was our dream for a long time. I am expecting and both of us are so happy and wanted to do this for our baby. But now our home is a mess with all the scrap and wreckage from the construction. We had covered all the furniture with the cloth, but that didn’t stop the dust from accumulating on them. The walls, curtains, all are dusty. I and my husband now have a huge task at hand- a good final interior cleanup. The workers shoveled off the debris from the construction, but the dust remains. Now to give the house a new look, we have to dust and polish everything. One of my friends suggested me to look for construction cleaning services. They will clean and prepare the new space for moving in. I was wondering, how would they charge us? Is it based on area cleaned, or does it depend upon the type of cleaning? I am sure dusting won’t be enough, vacuuming and steaming will also be necessary. Please do give some insights into this. I am open to suggestions, Thank you.

  14. Cleaning mold of Log Cabins

    There is a great deal involved in log home cleaning. It is not for the novice or those unaware of the weaknesses of them. I would suggest looking into log home suppliers and their products for further research which will help introduce you to many products used and why. Rod

  16. I am looking into how I would go about removing mold from a log cabin. I do not think I can use the same chemicals I use for vinyl siding with a concentration of pool chlorine and other chemicals. Does anyone have any experience with cleaning the mold off the exterior of log homes?

    thanks rod
  18. 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


  19. 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/
  20. cleaners

    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
  21. cleaners

  22. cleaners

    You can use a downstream injector for any chemical. I just would make sure none ever goes through the pump. Rod
  23. cleaners

  24. How to bring back the shine?

    Not much I can help with in this case without photos of specificity and more details of the type of surface(s) being cleaned. Rod
  25. 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.
  26. 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
