Wonder Sweeper On Tuesday Yet

The first time I saw the broom spinner something, I thought of wanting it right away but I stopped myself since I believe that it was too expensive for me.

One day my niece told me that she ordered something in a certain website and she said that almost all of the items that they offer are very affordable. I checked the website right away; I scanned all the items until I found the Wonder Sweeper and Dustpan all in one. I was surprised because the price is so light in the pocket. I can actually afford it!

So I added one in the cart using my niece app. The total amount was only P 330. 00. I was so excited, my niece said I can receive it today but I got disappointed when I receive not the item but her news. It will not be receive but it will ship yet today and I could have the items maybe on Tuesday next week.

Oh well maybe that was a blessing in disguise because I almost don’t have a budget for our allowance daily. Yeah I need to get the P 330. 00 pesos back in my wallet so the kids can go to their school and I can go to work. Not having the item today was just right for me. I can wait!

Ceiling Fan In The Dining Area

I bought a ceiling fan in the dining area on the first week of this month. And it was last Sunday that the electrician installed it. He found it easy to install since he just replaced the round florescent on the ceiling. What I like about this ceiling fan is just enough for our dining area. Why I did not bought ceiling fan in the living room it is because I planned to buy a cooler fan there. When enough budgets will come I am sure I can purchase that cooler fan Mj suggested. On the other hand here’s the cute ceiling fan in the dining area.

Bought A Small Ceiling Fan In The Dining Area

Thank GOD I was able to buy the ceiling fan placed now in the dining area at home. When I received my earning early this month I went to light talk right away and bought the ceiling fan I spotted a long time ago. I kept on visiting the place checking for ceiling fans; of course I was also checking the price. I was looking for the least expensive. I promised to myself that I will return and purchase one of their ceiling fans.

The one that I got was small enough for our dining area. It only had one bulb in the center. The only thing I didn’t like is that the light is not so bright but it doesn’t matter, what we really needed is the fan itself. And since I didn’t know any electrician nearby, I hired the electrician from the store. It cost P 500.00 for the labor to have it installed and last Sunday the electrician went to our house to install it. We don’t know how to install it so it is better to hire the expert.

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.
