Many people know all there is to know about house cleaning but very few people know the dirty secret about house cleaning Vancouver. This is true because there is a wide gulf seperating house cleaning and the house cleaning that exists in the city of Vancouver. The fact that you the reader of the Home AUVI Blog is not aware of this only serves to prove the point that this information has been kept a secret. This is not to say, however, that this information will remain a secret forever. Rather the point that I am trying to presently articulate is that the information is presently not known by most and in this respect could be considered a secret.

What is the Dirty Secret About House Cleaning Vancouver?

At this point in the article the Home AUVI reader will be eagerly awaiting this information so as to transform was is currently a secret into knowledge that is readily accessable. Before this information has been transferred it must first be explained why this secret is in fact a “dirty” one. Part of this is simply a play on words. This is an article about house cleaning so to talk about a dirty secret in relation to house cleaning is a bit of a pun.

Perhaps “pun” is not the correct word, however, there is little doubt that the average Home AUVI Blog reader will understand just what it is I am trying to say and the humor I am attempting to employ. But here we are in the third paragraph and still this information has not been transferred. That is certainly a problem that must be properly addressed before this blog post is over. As such I as the content creator shall certainly make the transfer of this information one of the top priorities on my to do list.

The Post Holiday Need for Electrician Ogden

with No Comments

LED-Night-Light-GAL000-NightLight.GalleryThere is and always will be a post holiday need for an electrician Ogden. Home AUVI Blog junkies will need no explanation as to what the title of this blog post refers to. We now find ourselves on the other side of Christmas and are in a better position to take stock of what has happened. In the lead up to Christmas there is too much frantic energy to maintain a proper awareness of what exactly is going on. Now that we find ourselves in the aftermath of Christmas our minds are no longer clouded by all that mental distraction.

Electrician Ogden

There are opened boxes and random scraps of wrapping paper lying about. Perhaps there is a garbage bag full of wrapping debris that has yet to be taken out to the garbage pail. But more important to the subject matter of this blog post there is likely to be more than a few light bulbs that have gone dark in the various strings of lights wrapped around the tree. Now, I am not here to say that an electrician is needed to fix this particular problem. However, those burnt out bulbs should serve as a reminder to hire an electrician to fix those more substantial electrical issues that perhaps were put to the side in favor of attending to the festive Christmas preparations.

Well, as previously indicated, Christmas is now behind us and those irritating issues related to reality that we were able to temporarily dismiss in favor of more pressing matters have now pushed themselves to the forefront. They must now be attended to or else they will become larger and more expensive problems down the road. As all the Home AUVI Blog junkies are well aware, electrical problems are nothing to leave to their own devices.

Rain Causes Water Damage Utah

with No Comments

streamIt is no secret that rain is composed of a molecule which in turn is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This of course describes the water molecule. Obviously the water molecule is responsible for causing water damage Utah. Few people without a background in chemistry know the reason why water can cause damage to materials exposed to it. The simple answer to this vexing question is because the oxygen atom has a number of valences. A valence is essentially an extra electron that is open to bond to another molecule. It is in its ability to bond with other molecules that makes water so damaging.

This is because when a water molecule bonds to another atom such as iron (for example) it changes that atom into a new molecule. In the case of iron expose to water the new molecule becomes iron oxide or what is commonly known as rust. This is also true for wood. Wood is a bit more complicated (from a molecular stand point than iron which is an element unto itself) but essentially the same process is happening. Water bonds to the molecules in the wood and change its chemical composition. From our perspective, this water damage Utah causes wood to rot.

Rain is a common element of nature. Without rain we cannot grow vegetation. Obviously water is essential for the sustenance of life. But like everything else in nature there are two sides to this coin. The same properties that allow water to sustain life are the very same properties that can cause damage to wooden or metal structures. Nature is both simple and complex. Often the efforts of man work at cross purposes to nature’s intentions. But all this together creates the fabric of existence within this very mysterious reality.

Freezing Pipes

The technology commonly known as the heat trace is a type of tape that can be applied to a pipe heat it and prevent it from freezing in cold weather. This technology can be commonly found in homes that are not properly insulated to prevent pipes from freezing in the winter. The use of this technology allows for the home owner to avoid the added expense of insulating and heating the areas where the pipes are located. We see this often in rooms that have been subsequently added on to houses after its initial construction. As such we see this commonly in older homes and in lower income areas.

This was exactly the situation I experienced in the first house that I owned in in the Roxborough area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My wife and I bought a row house with a room that had been added on to it in the back subsequent to its initial construction. This added room happened to be a bathroom with a shower and toilet. The first winter we lived in this house we discovered that the extra room was not properly heated or insulated. Because of this the pipes supplying water to the shower froze and burst.

Had my wife and I been more knowledgable home owners we would have realized the impending issue we would have to face. We did know that the room was improperly insulated because it was much colder than the rest of the house during the winter. We did not however put two and two together and realize that we needed to do something to prevent the pipes from freezing. The use of a heat trace could have potentially solved this problem. Also running the water at a low level seems to also work but not at extremely low temperatures.

Acceptance of Life Experience

landscape-1434147736-50-cleaning-tipsMany of the Home AUVI blog readers are also looking for house cleaning Vancouver. This would make good and proper sense for those readers who live in the city limits of Vancouver. It makes somewhat less sense for those Home AUVI blog readers who do not live in Vancouver. Although this cognitive dissonance can be averted by considering the possibility that the Home AUVI blog readers who do not live in Vancouver are arranging to have houses cleaned that are actually located in the city of Vancouver. But the question then arises as to why these people who are not located in Vancouver are performing this service.

One possibility as to why a Home AUVI blog reader who does not live in the city of Vancouver would be looking for house cleaning Vancouver would be that they operate or work for a business that provide this service to other people. This would only make sense if there are people living inside the city of Vancouver who are looking for house cleaning services but for some reason are unable to arrange for it on their own. The subsequent next question then arises as to why these people would not be able to perform this service for themselves.

Another possibility as to why a Home AUVI blog reader who does not live within the city limits of Vancouver would be looking for house cleaning services within the city of Vancouver might be that for some reason they want to clean other people’s houses. The reason why they would want this to happen remains a mystery. But it is possible that the reader of this particular blog post can remain in a state of acceptance of this present state of affairs. There are many experiences in life that are not fully understood and yet we all continue living.

The Inevitable Finish Line

with No Comments

drum2Sometimes when I walk along a gurgling stream I tend to think about appliances designed to produce heat. A drum heater is an example of just such an appliance. The loyal readers of the Home AUVI Blog know that this type of appliance can also be called a band heater, a barrel heater, a container heater or a canister heater. This appliance can be used to reduce the viscosity of various liquids and gels by heating them in order to fill, pump or bottle the respective liquid. It is also used to prevent liquids from freezing while inside the drum. There are many types of liquids these appliances are designed to heat including but not limited to tar, varnish, resin, grease, chocolate and or galantine. These appliances are available for drums capable of holding between twenty and two hundred and twenty liters.

All these thoughts swirl in my head much like the water swirling in the eddies of the gurgling stream I walk along. Sometimes there is a chill to the air. This causes my body to become cold. When I enter this state of mind I find myself fantasizing about climbing into a drum heated by a drum heater. I picture myself curled up in a ball inside the drum like a fetus in a womb. Inside this protective shell my chattering mind begins to slow and eventually quiet down.

This is why I walk along side the gurgling stream. The world is too hectic and the burden of worry and thought begins to drag me down and exhaust me. My existence becomes a wearying and toilsome affair. I wonder what it will be like to shed this ego shell that I have inhabited for the past forty-five years of life. The thought of shedding my ego is scary but this is a finish line I know I will cross at some point.

Answering Questions About the ASVAB

with No Comments

armed-forces-logoThe Home AUVI blog is constantly receiving requests from many of our loyal readers to provide information regarding the ASVAB test. Accordingly, in this blog post we will take the time to finally provide information on this important subject. First of all, the acronym ASVAB stands for the “Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.” This is a test administered by the U. S. Armed services to all candidates for enlistment in any branch of the U. S. Armed Services including the U. S. Army, the U. S. Navy, the U. S. Marines Corps, the U. S. Air Force, the U. S. Coast Guard and the U. S. National Guard.

Because a career in the U. S. Armed Services can be an exciting and rewarding life experience it is very important to perform well on the ASVAB. Accordingly, it is very important for the candidate for enlistment in the U. S. Armed Services to properly prepare beforehand. Many people who have performed successfully on the ASVAB report preparing for the test by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test. By taking a practice version of the ASVAB, the candidate for enlistment will become familiarized with the test format as well as learn which of the ten subject areas covered by the ASVAB will require additional focus in order to optimize performance on the day of the test.

Like the ASVAB test itself, the ASVAB practice test covers the same ten distinct subject areas. These subject areas include (1) General Science (GS), (2) Arithmetic Reasoning (AR),
(3) Word Knowledge (WK), (4) Paragraph Comprehension (PC), (5) Mathematics Knowledge (MK), (6) Electronics Information (EI), (7) Auto & Shop Information (AS), and (8) Mechanical Comprehension (MC). The test itself is comprised of two sections. The first section of the ASVAB is a standardized multiple choice exam. The second section of the ASVAB is a written format.

Musing While Walking Along a Gurgling Stream

with No Comments

streamAs the days grow darker and colder I find my mind turning inward. I go for walks amidst the cold wind and the falling leaves. I look up and see the branches bare and stark against the pale blue sky. With my hands in my pockets and my chin pressed into my breast my philosophical view of the world is stoic. There is a small stream running along the path I typically find myself walking. On a normal day I can hear the water churn and gurgle through the rocks and sticks in the channel. The water keeps pushing its way through day after day. Eventually it inflicts enough water damage Utah to break up the sticks and push them aside. I observe its progress daily when I walk past.

Sometimes I think about how long this water will continue to flow. I ask myself if there will ever be a day when the water stops flowing along its path. I am sure when that day arrives I will no longer be walking this route. There will be many days in between that day and today. There will be much water damage Utah inflicted upon the sticks and rocks in the stream. The stream itself might even change course between then and now.

Of course if I think along these lines for an extended period of time my thoughts eventually begin to ask me what its all about and whether there is any meaning to it all. From my daily perspective this stream seems eternal. It was there yesterday, the water flows today and I have no doubt that it will be flowing tomorrow. But someday it will stop flowing and so will I. The day after, I do not know if I will have any sense of myself or if the lights will be turned out for good.

No Easy Task

FloodIt is a well established principle that water can cause damage to houses. Whether this water arrives in the form of rain, floods or leaking pipes the amount of water damage Utah it can cause can be both extensive and costly. When this water damage is inflicted upon a house or other structure immediate steps must be taken to mitigate the damage before it gets even worse. These steps typically involve first draining or otherwise removing any standing water that remains and second drying the structure once the standing water has been removed. The longer the standing water remains the more damage it will cause.

In addition to removing the standing water, the structure must be properly dried. If it is not properly dried the chances that mold will set in and begin to grow and spread significantly increases as time goes on. Once mold begins to grow inside a water damaged structure it becomes very difficult to remove. Very often a professional mold remediation expert must be hired to properly perform this task so that the mold does not return. Mold can also begin to grow in hidden places which is another important reason to hire a professional mold remediation expert.

Once the house or structure has been properly dried the house or structure must then be properly assessed to determine what repairs are necessary to maintain the house or structure’s integrity. This inspection process always requires a professional to determine the extent the water damage Utah inflicted upon the structure. The inspection, once conducted will provide useful information as to what structural repairs are required to return the house to its original habitable state of being. Once these repairs are determined then the appropriate contractors must then be hired to make these repairs. Returning a water damaged house back to its original state of repair is most definitely no easy task.
