Covered The Bottom Part Of The Screen Door

Just few months ago, I was able to hire someone to repair our screen door, it was repaired but little did I know that it was lacking of something at the bottom part to prevent mouse to get inside the house. There was a small hole at the bottom part; it needs to be covered so no small mouse can get inside the house. It has been a while that mouse were coming in and out of the house because of the small hole. I didn’t know what to do at all until I realized that it’s lacking of a cover. I checked the screen door of the living room and I noticed a cover at the bottom part. I need a cover for our kitchen screen door, I was thinking to visit a screen door installer nearby but I just don’t have the time until last week, I visited their store and ask them if they have something to cover the hole of the screen door they repaired few months ago. The in-charge said they would look at it, they visited the house a day after and they informed my sister the labor fee, when I got home, my sister told me how much is the installment fee. It was P 200. 00, which was not bad at all compared the suffering we got when mouse would get inside the house. Even if I would buy stick pad for it, these mouse will not going to get rid off if we won’t cover the hole. On that day, when my sister called them and told them that we were okay with the fee, the installer went here right away and installed the cover. Now I can see no more rats at all, thank Goodness!

Most of the time, I will make sure that we have hand soap to use in the kitchen, so whenever we wash our hands there we have hand soap not a bar soap waiting for us. But you know how much expensive they are, it is not necessity but it is nice to have it there at least. Due to financial constraints, I would set that purchase aside and will buy something more important. When I saw this to Gaisano Mall and when I found out that the price is just right to my budget I put it in the cart right away. It’s all worth it because the kids like it and not to mention that it smells good and because the container is big enough, until now we still have enough.

I always wanted to buy air freshener but I would always say “next time” thank GOD that the previous days when I grocery shop, I was able to include this to my list since I have a little extra. But even it is there sitting in the corner, they still didn’t have the effort to spray in the house. I don’t know what they are waiting for or who they are waiting for to spray it over. Geez maybe I will be the one to initiate it first so they will follow, honestly I don’t know what to do anymore or what else to do in the house to make it look nice, I wanted to do this and that but I just don’t have enough, especially now that the car repair is very much expensive plus the enrollment of the kids is scheduled this month.

How a French Drain Can Keep the Basement Dry

Having a flooded basement after a rain storm can be disheartening. Further exploration might reveal cracks in the basement walls that need to be repaired. Many homeowners go through the motions of having the cracks repaired, but are leaving out the solution for why the cracks are there to begin with. Improper water drainage is the main reason your basement gets cracks in the walls, or floor and floods. Waterproofing experts can help determine the best methods of keeping water away from the foundation. French drains have proven to be a very effective tool in this process.

What Is a French Drain?

A French drain is one that is generally placed alongside the foundation to alleviate the problems associated with excess water at, or near the foundation surface. They can be installed in, or outside of the basement. The drains lead to an area that has a sump pump to evacuate the water properly into a sewage line. They are most noticeable when placed near concrete driveways in flood-prone locations.

External French Drains

The placement of an outdoor French drain is something that is added after a waterproofing membrane is placed against the outside wall of a foundation. A layer of gravel is covered by a hearty PVC pipe and then back-filled with more gravel. The design is simple, yet effective. The excess water will be moved away from the foundation wall and a sump pump will help direct it away from the property through proper disposal pipes.

Indoor French Drains

Adding a French drain inside the basement is ideal for areas that suffer from a huge fluctuation in the water table levels of the ground. You can determine this by the way water infiltrates the basement. If it comes up from the floor and edges after heavy rains, you have a water table issue. Installation is the similar inside the basement, except that a portion of floor will have to be dug up to insert the drain. The water collected will be sent to a main area that a sump pump will direct out and away from the foundation.

Releasing Pressure on the Foundation

Cracks in the walls of a concrete basement are a symptom of water pressure that is being increased along the foundation. Filling the cracks and fixing the symptoms are good, but you need to get down to a solution for what is causing the problem. A French drain system is an affordable way to keep cracks from happening in the future. This minor investment will ensure that your foundation stays healthy and the home safe.
