Do Dry Concrete Cleaners Work

I just got finished with cleaning my concrete around my automotive shop. I have been doing everything I can to clean up the place. When I opened up this location for my transmission repair shop I never expected that I would have so much trouble getting all the grease oil and grime off of the concrete.

So I can tell you today it looks a lot better than it did, most of the concrete has oil so deep inside of it that it can’t be washed off with a power washer or a steamer. The former tenant at this location just took no care in where they spilled oil. I can also assume that they never cleaned up an oil spill.

Dry concrete cleaner eco friendly

So today I bought a three pound container of a concrete cleaner that is supposed to work without scrubbing. Although I don’t understand the technology, dry concrete cleaners come highly recommended.

Apparently dry concrete cleaners do what detergents cannot. They actually do what all else fails and do not wash contaminates into the sewer. I’ve also been told that dry concrete cleaners are preferred by the Environmental Protection Agency.

In the next few weeks I will post an update as to how the concrete looks after being treated. Apparently even though dry concrete cleaners do a good job and require no scrubbing there is a distinct problem with how long they might take to complete the job.

New AC Repair Feature

I was reading the Las Vegas news paper. It showed that an old time air conditioning company is turning over a new leaf.

Arctic heating and air conditioning repair company, is now offering a comprehensive 3 year warranty on parts and labor for any repairs that they make to your air conditioner in Las Vegas and Henderson. At first I didn’t think this was any big deal. As I began to check out the competition it seems that only a handful of AC repair companies offer any kind of warranty above and beyond 90 days. Most manufacturers of air conditioning parts only offer a 90 day warranty.

We asked the owners what they thought the extended warranty would do for there customers. The simple answer is piece of mind. Not much more is needed. Most customers want to just feal like they are getting a fair deal. Giving them a 3 year warranty on all repair is a new concept in the HVAC business but it is a solid one that people will grab on to for sure.

Arctic HVAC has created new market for themselves in the air conditioning repair arena. I’m sure it is only a matter of time until other HVAC contractors follow suit with extended warranties. I’m sure that even though they offer this 3 year warranty they will not be the only ones in the coming years.

Sometimes competition is good for everyone. It levels the playing field and makes it possible for advancement with other ac repair companies.

If you need an air conditioning repair and the 3 year warranty sounds like a good deal for you, you can call Arctic HVAC and have them come out and inspect your air conditioner before they do any repairs. They will offer you a comprehensive evaluation and upfront pricing. They do charge a $19.99 diagnostic fee for checking out your air conditioner. I was surprised to learn that this fee is typically 80 to 120 with other air conditioning contractors. I tip my hat to Arctic HVAC and wish them well as they are performing an ethical business and blazing a trail.

Tips and Tricks to repair your Furnace DIY


In this video I show you a few things to look for to fix your furnace. It’s expensive to call a repair man and most of the time is not needed. I am not an expert, just someone trying to share my experience with you to save some money. Always turn your power to your furnace off before tampering with things. This would be a good video to start with because I try to show a general idea of how a furnace works. When all else fails, you have to call an expert, but first try the steps in this video.

Here is a list of codes that was posted to www.doityourself.com by Huston204

Flash sequence codes 1 through 11 are as follows: LED will turn “on” for 1/4 second and “off” for 1/4 second. This pattern will be repeated the number of times equal to the code. For example, six “on” flashes equals a number 6 fault code. All flash code sequences are broken by a 2 second “off” period.

SLOW GREEN FLASH: Normal operation.
SLOW AMBER FLASH: Normal operation with call for heat.
RAPID RED FLASH: Twinning error, incorrect 24V phasing. Check twinning wiring.
RAPID AMBER FLASH: Flame sense current is below 1.5 microamps. Check and clean flame sensor. Check for proper gas flow. Verify that current is greater than 1.5 microamps at flame current test pad.

4 AMBER FLASHES: The control is receiving a “Y” signal from the thermostat without a “G” signal, indicating improper thermostat wiring.

1 RED FLASH: This indicates that flame was sensed when there was not a call for heat. The control will turn on both the inducer motor and supply air blower. A gas valve that leaks or is slow closing would typically cause this fault.

2 RED FLASHES: This indicates that the normally open pressure switch contacts are stuck in the closed position. The control confirms these contacts are open at the beginning of each heat cycle. This would indicate a faulty pressure switch or miswiring.

3 RED FLASHES: This indicates the normally open pressure switch contact did not close after the inducer was energized. This could be caused by a number of problems: faulty inducer, blocked vent pipe, broken pressure switch hose or faulty pressure switch.

4 RED FLASHES: This indicates that the main limit switch has opened its normally closed contacts. The control will operate the supply air blower and inducer. This condition may be caused by: dirty filter, improperly sized duct system, incorrect blower speed setting, incorrect firing rate or faulty blower motor. Also, this fault code could be caused by a blown fuse located on the control board.

5 RED FLASHES: This fault is indicated if the normally closed contacts in the rollout switch opens. The rollout control is manually reset. If it has opened, check for proper combustion air, proper inducer operation, and primary heat exchanger failure or burner problem. Be sure to reset the switch and cycle power (24 VAC) to the control after correcting the failure condition. Also, this fault code could be caused by a blown fuse located on the control board.

6 RED FLASHES: This indicates that after the unit was operating, the pressure switch opened 4 times during the call for heat. If the main blower is in a “Delay on” mode, it will complete it, and any subsequent delay off period. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

7 RED FLASHES: This fault code indicates that the flame could not be established. This no-light condition occurred 3 times (2 retries) during the call for heat before locking out. Low gas pressure, faulty gas valve, dirty or faulty flame sensor, faulty hot surface ignitor or burner problem may cause this. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

8 RED FLASHES: This fault is indicated if the flame is lost 5 times (4 recycles) during the heating cycle. This could be caused by low gas pressure, dirty or faulty flame sensor or faulty gas valve. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

9 RED FLASHES: Indicates reversed line voltage polarity or groundingproblem. Both heating and cooling operations will be affected. Check polarity at furnace and branch. Check furnace grounding. Check that flame probe is not shorted to chassis.

10 RED FLASHES: Flame sensed with no call for heat. Check gas valve and gas valve wiring.

11 RED FLASHES: This indicates that a primary or auxiliary limit switch has opened its normally-closed contacts and has remained open for more than five minutes. This condition is usually caused by a failed blower motor or blower wheel. Cycle power (24 VAC) to the control to reset the hard lockout condition after correcting the failure condition.

LIFE HACKS FOR A CLEAN & ORGANIZED HOUSE


10 easy life hacks you NEED to know for having a clean and organized house! These are life hacks I actually use in my daily cleaning routine + how I keep my house clean and organized! Give this video a thumbs up if you like it!

Hey guys! Today’s video is 10 life hacks that are some of my best life hacks for having a clean and organized home. I use these tips in my daily cleaning routine + they’ve helped me become a cleaner, more organized person!

I’m a naturally disorganized type of person. I like things to be clean, but I’m also the kind of person who has tons of clothes piling up in their room. These are hacks I learned in my own life that really helped me be more productive, be more organized and keep my house clean!

These are easy life hacks + easy ways that you can realistically keep your house clean. If you learn to develop these habits to keeping your house clean, it will begin to seem easy and come naturally to you. I’ve been doing these for so long that they are just my habits for keeping a clean house!

10 LIFE HACKS FOR A CLEAN + ORGANIZED HOME // MY HABITS FOR A CLEAN HOUSE

1. CLEAR COUNTERS: clear off your counters to make your place look larger + cleaner. This tip is great in rooms like bathrooms, kitchens, etc.

2. DISPLAY STORAGE: For the items you DO leave out, I like to organize in surface storage like trays. Even though the same amount of items are still out, a tray looks more intentional and organized.

3. CLEAR THE WALLS: Keep minimal wall art / decor to maximize the space in your room. Focus on one or two statement pieces. Your eye knows where to focus with one or two pieces and can truly appreciate what it adds to the room. Having a ton of photos + decor looks more messy / cluttered. [I’m sure I’ll get a comment like ‘but wait so you’re telling me to remove any personality from a room’ – no, not true. But, sure- these are tips on how to have the CLEANEST space. Get a photo album, put it on your coffee table].

4. COLOR CODE: Color coding makes maximum impact in a space. It looks so appealing to the eye + organized. This is especially great in small spaces where closets feel more cramped or are out in the open, like a studio or dorm.

5. SET TIME LIMITS + MULTI TASK: Don’t plan a day to clean, give yourself a time limit: 30 minutes, 1 hour. 30 minutes out of 24 hours doesn’t seem that daunting. Play a netflix show, listen to a podcast or an audiobook and enjoy the time.

6. PUT THINGS AWAY ONCE: Develop the habit to put things away immediately, no matter how easy it is to throw something right when you get in the door. You’re doubling the work for yourself by doing that!

7. CLEAN AS YOU GO: I like to clean as I go in situations, especially when I’m cooking. Throw out trash, put utensils in the dish washer and clean your surfaces as you go so your kitchen is mostly clean by the time you’re done.

8. ORGANIZE BY FUNCTION: I have specific storage based on function. I have one bag where I keep all of my technology- it keeps cords off tables / desks, but I also always know where those items are.

9. USE CONTAINERS: I got organizers at the container store for storage in my bathroom, kitchen etc. I separate my face products from hair products and it keeps everything organized and in place.

10. STORAGE INCEPTION: Use larger items to house smaller items that you use less frequently. I have throw pillows in my purses [also great for displaying- they keep the shape!], winter fuzzy socks in my stand up boots and extra pillows / blankets in my larger suitcases.

These are easy life hacks that will you develop habits to have a clean and organized house! Let me know if you guys like videos like this by giving this video a thumbs up and letting me know in the comments!

AMAZING New Green Technologies in the Works

The world is feeling the effects of climate change. Storms are getting stronger, weather patterns are changing, food is becoming scarce, and animals are going extinct at an alarming rate. Fortunately, while there are many people that are continuing to hurt our environment, there are also people out there who are working feverishly to help it. From simple ideas to entire Eco-cities, new ideas are being developed everyday to help improve the environment and our lives.

Air Purifying Roof Tiles

A big problem with green technology is making it as practical as it is useful. With this in mind, a new trend in practical green technology is the coating of roof tiles with titanium dioxide, which is useful in cleaning the air. Titanium dioxide works as a photocatalyst by oxidizing nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds into soluble nitrates and fatty acids when exposed to UV light. Studies have shown that a thick coating of material on roof tiles reduces 97% of target greenhouse gases, while a thinner, cost effective coat still reduces the target gases by 88%. This means that it could cost just five dollars to coat an entire roof with the purifying compound. One home could remove 21g of nitrogen oxide a day, which is the equivalent of what a car releases driving 18,000 km. Widespread application would allow every home in the world to become a mini-air purifier. The idea is still in the testing phase, but early results have been extremely promising. The lighter color of the tiles also has the added benefit of producing a small cooling effect. There’s also a possibility of producing tiles to remove carbon dioxide, but this would decrease the practicality of the tiles by making the roofs harder to install.

Smog-Eating Buildings

Mexico City’s Manuel Gea Gonzalez Hospital constructed a 2,500 square meter facade that breaks down air pollutants when exposed to UV light. The honeycomb increases the surface area by 200% and allows the structure to neutralize the same amount of pollutants in one day that’s produced by 8,750 cars.

11 Amazing Eco Friendly Inventions and Ideas

11 most incredible alternative energy sources like lamps powered by blood or salt and an air conditioner made from recycled bottles.

Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr

6. The Eco-Cooler

This amazing DIY air conditioning system was created by a Bangladeshi citizen named Ashis Paul and it requires no electricity whatsoever. This makes it the first air conditioning system that runs on zero electricity. Made out of a board and recycled soda bottles, this air conditioner is able to cool the internal temperature of huts up to 5 degrees Celsius, which is good because most huts are made with tin roofs that magnify the sun’s heat. The blueprints on how to create one of these are located online for the public so that everyone is able to build one of these.

5. The Blood Lamp

What would you do for the sake of having electricity? Would you be willing to cut off your own hair? What about giving up just a drop of your essential life force? That’s what Mike Thompson, the designer of the blood lamp, did when he asked himself the question “what if power came at a cost to the individual?” This is more of a statement piece on the matter of energy conservation but it really makes you think doesn’t it? So how is this possible? Thanks to one special ingredient: luminol. For those of you who watch a lot of crime shows you already know but for those of you who don’t, luminol is what forensic scientists use to identify blood. The chemical reaction occurs only when the luminol reacts with the iron in the blood. Isn’t science just so amazing these days?

4. The Immortus
