EnviroFry Introduces Fiber Optics Video Camera Mold Inspection Inside Arizona Home Walls & Ceilings

EnviroFry Introduces Fiber Optics Video Camera Mold Inspection Inside Arizona Home Walls & Ceilings

Certified Environmental Hygienist Lee Maglanoc uses a fiber optics cable with a video camera to do mold inspection inside walls, ceilings, and HVAC air ducts.

Online PR News – 06-October-2014 – To find toxic mold growth inside the walls, ceilings, and heating/air conditioning supply and return air ducts of homes and workplaces in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tucson, and elsewhere in Arizona, EnviroFry has begun using a fiber optics cable video inspection camera, announces Phillip Fry, Certified Environmental Hygienist, who has been the webmaster since 1999 of the mold information website www.moldinspector.com.

Mold growth is often hidden inside a building, with the result that the occupants who suffer many resulting and serious, mold-related health problems cannot see the mold cause of their health afflictions, adds Mr. Fry, who is also a Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified Environmental Inspector, and Certified Remediation Specialist.

Fiber optics cable video camera inspection through small holes cut into walls and ceilings is one component of the comprehensive mold inspection done for Arizona houses and commercial buildings by EnviroFrys Arizona manager Lee Maglanoc, Certified Environmental Hygienist, who has over 20 years experience in building environmental inspection and remediation.

Mr. Maglanocs thorough mold inspections also include:

(1) Careful visual inspection inside the attic, inside HVAC air supply and return ducts, and all rooms and areas inside the structure;

(2) Collecting a mold sample of all discovered visible mold growth for lab analysis for mold species identification and quantification;

(3) Collecting a sample of the outward air flow from the HVAC air ducts and of room air in key rooms such as the living room and bedrooms for lab analysis;

(4) Collecting an outdoor air sample that will also be lab analyzed to serve as a comparison standard and point of reference to help evaluate the severity of indoor mould test lab results;

(5) Measuring and recording the indoor humidity of all rooms and areas because indoor humidity that exceeds 70% some or all of the time will drive mold growth; and

(6) Written report of Mr. Maglanocs findings and mold lab results, including a mold remediation protocol plan and bid quotation to get rid of any significant toxic mold problems discovered during the inspection and testing.

To schedule mold inspection, testing, and mold removal for a home, office, store, or workplace in the East Valley, metro Phoenix, metro Tucson, Sedona, Flagstaff, Yuma, or anywhere else in Arizona, phone Lee Maglanoc 602-757-1918, or email azmoldinspector@yahoo.com, or visit the websites www.arizonamoldinspection.net, www.mesamoldinspection.com, or www.tucsonmoldinspector.com.

O configurador online único GROHE BestMatch™ ajuda-o a encontrar a combinação perfeita entre o lavatório e a torneira

O configurador online único GROHE BestMatch™ ajuda-o a encontrar a combinação perfeita entre o lavatório e a torneira

27 November, 2014, PR Newswire/- When it comes to choosing a washbasin and faucet for your bathroom, you are faced with a seemingly endless variety. But which faucet looks best with which basin? And what spout height and reach should I choose for a given basin? Answers to all these questions and more are provided by a new app called GROHE BestMatch™. This unique online configurator requires only a few clicks to identify the optimal combination of basin and faucet. Ensuring an attractive overall look, maximum comfort and a perfect flow of water has never been easier.

Designer-approved combinations

GROHE BestMatch™ makes designing your own bathroom even more fun. Simply click through the best combinations on the website or the app, save your personal favourites and post them on Pinterest or Facebook to discuss them with your friends.

GROHE BestMatch™ is not based on a simple formula for the calculation of spout length, washbasin depth and the angle of incidence of the water. To make this online tool available to its customers, GROHE installed various faucet lines on the current washbasin lines from different manufacturers and subjected them to extensive tests. The tests were designed to establish the amount of splashing when the faucet is opened and during hand washing, the amount of space remaining between the spout and the basin as well as the visual coherence of a combination.

Paul Flowers, Senior Vice President Design of GROHE, personally examined all combinations prior to the tests and matched faucets to basins based on their shared design features. Some 3,000 combinations have already been tested in the GROHE Lab – more will follow.

A few clicks take users to the dream team for their bathroom

And this is how GROHE BestMatch™ works: The user chooses a faucet or a washbasin. Filters such as style, product type, form, installation and type of operation gradually narrow down the search. Products range from standard washbasins to built-in and under-counter basins to countertop basins and from faucets of different heights to free-standing single-lever mixers to wallmounted spouts. Straightforward navigation, a convenient search window, numerous decision-making aids and explanatory charts provide quick orientation. The search results can be narrowed down further by adding factors such as price range, brand, product line, faucet size and the style of the combination product, so that only the best variants will be shown. The result: no more annoying splashing of water, excellent comfort in use and great looks.

Thanks to the realistic presentation of the products, everybody can evaluate the possible combinations without requiring a lot of imagination or the capacity to think three-dimensionally. This way, even combinations, which are nowhere to be found in local showrooms can be explored and shortlisted. This allows users to find the perfect bespoke solution for their bathroom.

What has long since been taken for granted in many spheres of everyday life such as fashion, living, food, electronics or automobiles now also comes true in the bathroom industry thanks to GROHE: an easy-to-use configurator offering genuine added value for the design of bathrooms. GROHE BestMatch™ makes splashing water and unsightly design combinations of washbasin and faucet a thing of the past – GROHE will find the dream team for any bathroom.

The benefits of GROHE BestMatch™ at a glance

Functions:

  • Guidance through complex product ranges
  • Possibility to try combinations on the online configurator in a quick and straightforward manner
  • Decision-making aids allow for easy coordination
  • Only wash basin/faucet combinations which have been tested visually and functionally are shown

Results:

  • No splashing water when faucet is opened
  • Risk-free hand washing without water splashes
  • Convenient use of the washbasin combination thanks to sufficient space between faucet and basin
  • Attractively coordinated bathroom design thanks to professionally approved combination

EnviroFry Offers Thai Do-Your-Own Mould Tests with Tape Lift Sampling, Pictures, & Lab Report

EnviroFry Offers Thai Do-Your-Own Mould Tests with Tape Lift Sampling, Pictures, & Lab Report

EnviroFry announces its do your own mould testing service with a USA-accredited lab analysis report of collected samples and submitted mould pictures.

Online PR News – 16-October-2014 – Homeowners, other property owners, managers, and tenants in Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Mueang Nonthaburi, Udon Thani, Chon Buri, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chiang Mai, Hai Yat, Pak Kret, Si Racha, Phra Pradaeng, Lampung, Mae Sot, and elsewhere in Thailand, can now identify and quantify at low cost the toxic mould species types that may be infesting their buildings by using the do-it-yourself EnviroFry Scotch Tape Lift Sampling & Mould Pictures Testing Protocol, announces EnviroFry co-manager Phillip Fry.

Fry is a Certified Environmental Hygienist, Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified Environmental Inspector, Certified Remediation Specialist, Certified Mold Inspector, Certified Mold Remediator, Certified Air Duct Cleaning Specialist, and webmaster of www.envirothai.com and www.thailandfloodmold.com.

The do your own mould testing protocol includes these steps:

1. Lift Tape Sampling

The property owner, manager, or tenant uses inexpensive, clear, transparent, sticky, one inch (2.54 cm) wide adhesive tape, such as Scotch brand or similar tape that is cut into three inch (7.6 cm) long strips to collect the mould samples. Complete Scotch tape lift sampling instructions are provided at www.moldexpertconsultants.com/diy_mold_testing.htm.

Scotch tape lift sampling is an easy, inexpensive, and effective way to do mould sampling in Thailand when a person—

(a) Sees mould growing on a wall, ceiling, floor, carpeting, furniture, heating/cooling duct register, or other surface;

(b) Wants to know whether a particular stain, discoloration, growth, or mystery substance on the wall or another surface is actually toxic mould;

(c) Smells possible mould odors (caused by the digestive gas emitted by mould eating the home, building, or contents) and wants to test a number of surfaces upon which elevated levels of airborne mould spores may have landed or been deposited, such as on walls, window sills, window and door trim, refrigerator top, kitchen cabinet tops, undusted furniture, heating/cooling duct registers, and the return air filter in the heating/cooling system; and/or

(d) Wants to test the inside walls of heating/cooling ducts for the possible presence of elevated levels of mould spores.

2. Take and Submit Pictures of Water Damage and Mould Growth

To supplement the collected lift tape samples, the property owner, manager, or tenant takes close up pictures with a smart cell phone or digital camera of any visible building water damage or mould growth, as well as pictures of the entire building, room, and areas from which the close up photographs were taken.

3. Send Lift Tape Samples and Mould Pictures to Mould Expert Phillip Fry for Lab Analysis and Frys Written Report Analyzing the Lab Results and Pictures

Up to three different collected lift tape samples (or alternatively, 2 inch by 2 inch physical samples of the actual mould growth itself as cut from mould-infested building materials or other surfaces such as carpeting), along with the lab chain of custody form available at www.moldexpertconsultants.com/diy_mold_testing.htm, are then mailed (or sent via FedEx or an alternate delivery service) to EnviroFry, 10104 Sheridan Rd., Montrose, Michigan 48457, USA, along with the a check or money order for U.S. $200 payable to EnviroFry, or, alternatively, credit or debit card payment by sending money via www.paypal.com to the PayPal email payment address of phil@moldinspector.com.

Each additional lift tape sampling or physical mould sampling above the first three is only U.S. $35.00 per sampling to be lab analyzed.

Mould, building, and room or area pictures, along with a detailed description of any known building water leaks and flooding history or mould damage problems, should be sent either as actual photographs to the company address, or, preferably, as email attachments to phil@moldinspector.com.

Within five business days after EnviroFrys receipt of the lift tape samplings and the mould pictures, Phillip Fry will provide via email: (a) the mould lab results from an expert USA mould analysis lab accredited as an American Industrial Hygienists Association EMPAT Laboratory; (b) Frys written analysis, opinion, and report as to the extent and severity of the mould infestation, as evidenced in the submitted samples and mould pictures; (c) Frys specific suggestions on how any discovered mould problem can be removed and remediated effectively, safely, and affordably.

Read Frys recommended ten steps for effective mould removal at www.moldinspector.com/mold_removal.htm.

Kalia Floors Announces Complimentary Winter Hardwood Flooring…

Kalia Floors Announces Complimentary Winter Hardwood Flooring…

Park City, Utah (PRWEB) November 28, 2014

As the winter months approach, Kalia Floors, a well known Utah flooring company, announces that they are offering free consultations for Park City residents to familiarize themselves with preventitive maintenance for hardwood floors during wet months. The announcement reaffirms the company as a leader in hardwood floor installation within the Beehive State.

Utah experiences different seasons all throughout the year. The different seasons have different effects on a home’s humidity. And most homeowners know that the biggest enemy of hardwood floors, solid and engineered, is moisture. The ideal humidity level to keephardwood flooring in the best shape in a home is between 35 and 55 percent. This way, the air is not too dry to cause hardwood floors to dry up and it is not too moist to let the moisture seep into hardwood floors and cause expansion.

Founder of Kalia Floors, Scott Heath, comments. “Too dry air inside a house can cause hardwood floors to splinter or crack. Alternatively, too moist air in the house allows moisture to seep into hardwood flooring and cause it to expand. The expansion causes hardwood flooring to ‘cup.'”

With winter at the doorstep of Utah residents, particularly those in higher elevations like Park City, many homeowners are already starting to use heaters. The use of a heater keeps the house warm but it also causes the air to become dry which may result in drying out hardwood floors. Mr. Heath elaborates. “An initial sign that hardwood flooring is already starting to dry up is the presence of gaps between the flooring that hasn’t been present before.” He continues. “If gaps are already showing it is important to immediately consult a specialist on hardwood floors. If no intervention is made then damage can worsen and repairs can become more costly.”

There are ways to maintain the ideal humidity level of the inside of the homes. It is best to get a professional opinion from an expert in hardwood flooring or a home’s original hardwood floor supplier. A small consultation can save homeowners big costs by protecting flooring during varying seasons.

Determining the Best Gauge & the Best Price for Metal Roofing

Determining the Best Gauge & the Best Price for Metal Roofing

Finished Steel Shingles | MRNWe get questions regularly from folks wanting to know the “best” metal roof or the “best gauge” for a metal roof. Like most things in the building products industry, the answer is a little complex. The truth is that different gauges work best for different metals, profiles and applications. Higher-end projects with a tougher spec and very steep roofs or vertical walls tend to be handled best by the heaviest gauges. Low end, agricultural and exposed fastener projects tend to be thinner.

Keep in mind that the gauge of a metal gets higher as the metal gets thinner, just like sewing needles. A 22 gauge (or 22GA) metal roof might be nearly DOUBLE the thickness of a 29 gauge (29GA) metal roof. To make matters all the more confusing, different metals use different measuring standards. For example, a 24 gauge copper roof panel is a different thickness than a 24 gauge steel roof panel. It’s not the easiest thing to understand.

copper panels | MRNWhile there are many manufacturers who do, we don’t normally make any of our profiles in gauges thinner than 26 gauge steel, and most of our products are 24 gauge and heavier. If you’re thinking you just need a “minimum” thickness, then 26 or 28 are the usual choices. If you’re thinking of a better quality installation where long-term appearance and resistance to extreme weather are important, you may want to consider 24 and heavier.

To complicate matters further, keep in mind that the profile into which the metal is formed will also affect the suitability of differing metal gauges. To illustrate, take a piece of paper from your printer and hold it between your fingers so it hangs down toward your desk. Now, slowly lower the paper onto the desk and see if it will support itself. Of course, it will just collapse flat onto the table. Now take that same piece of paper and put two or folds down the length of the paper and try the same thing again. Voila – the paper supports itself because you’ve “added” strength by creating the folds. The same concept applies with the sheet metal from which metal roofs are made. The more complex and smaller the shape, the more suitable is a lighter gauge (higher gauge number) metal. Conversely, the fewer the folds and the greater distance between them means that a heavier gauges (lower gauge number) is likely needed.

It’s important to keep all this in mind when comparing metal roof prices, because two roofs that look the same may have completely different thicknesses of metal and almost without exception, given the same metal the heavier gauge material will be stronger, more wind resistant, more resilient to foot traffic, and longer lasting.
