There Is No Planet B.

I know I know, what is this? this is a real estate blog why are we talking about the environment? Well, because the environment needs help, and we need the earth in order to sell houses. I’m going to tell you what global warming is, and how you can help.

Water Bottles– I know its easy to just use plastic water bottles and then just throw them away after they’re done being used, But fun fact, it takes 400 years for one plastic water bottle to decompose, or ANY plastic at that. That means you could throw a plastic water bottle on the ground and come back in 2220 and it would still be there. By buying a reusable water bottle you’re not only saving the earth from being littered of plastic for 400 years, but you’re ending the risk of it going into the ocean. Most reusable water bottles can hold up to EIGHT hours of hot liquid, and up to five hours with cold liquid! Reusable water bottles last you for literally as long as you want it for.

Reusables – This one is a bit tougher, for me its hard to find reusable grocery bags locally. You can order a pack of reusable grocery bags from Amazon for $15, so not only will you be saving the earth but it’ll be in style. You can order reusable metal straws from amazon as well, at the most they’re $10, only ten dollars to never reuse a plastic straw ever again. You can find alternatives for literally everything that they make from plastic. Sure one time use plastic is nice and you dont have to worry about it when youre done, but it destroys the earth, and gives us less time to be here.

Global Warming

I know some might not believe in global warming but here are some pictures that have been taken only ten years apart. Now I don’t know about you, but this is scary to me. The way i see things is that everything and everyone was put here for a reason. But its the decisions we made that got us to this point.  As a whole the human race gets so caught up in what they’re doing or whats going on in their lives they don’t see the bigger picture here.

Now lets talk about the leading causes of Global Warming, and i will say in advance, some might not like it.

Food Agriculture- The meat industry is literally the leading cause of Global Warming. It took more than 20 years to broadly accept that mankind is causing global warming with the emission of greenhouse gases. The drastic increase in the emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide) within the last 30 years caused by burning fossil fuels has been identified as the major reason for the change of temperature in the atmosphere. What causes CO2? Major industries and factories. Whats the biggest industry here in the US? You got it, the meat industry. With the way the US is producing meat your children and even grand children might not live their full lives. At some point the earth is going to give the human race the boot, unless we stop and come together to help, not just for the earth to be beautiful again but for the children who are alive now that deserve a chance at life.

The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has become so large that planting trees can no longer save us. For those that don’t know trees absorb CO2 to grow, they then release oxygen for humans and animals. But a very abrupt realist shows that there is simply not enough room on the earth to plant the number of trees it would take to stop the earth from warming up just 3.6 DEGREES. only 3 degrees. If the planet were to warm up just 3.6 degrees it will increase the amount of wildfires, droughts, extreme storms. What does it take to stop this from happening? Studies show that we would have to plant over 1.7 BILLION acres of trees, through that it would remove 3 billion tons of atmospheric carbon each year. That is only about 10% of what we emit annually. But planting that many trees wouldn’t solve the problem but it would be a major help.

There’s still one more problem with that, 1.7billion acres is about the size of the entire united states. The US covers half of the land that’s used for crops WORLDWIDE. So if this tactic were to be planned out this way and used, people everywhere would starve.

 

Here are a few solutions scientists have thrown in the air to help.

  1. Switching from gas to electric, there are little to no downsides to switching from gas to electric, it ceases the use of fossil fuels.

“Since the Great Smog of 1952, which killed 4,000 Londoners in just five days, air pollution has been linked to a shortened lifespan. Over 60 years later and air pollution is still a valid health concern and with more cars on the road than ever, transport is now a major contributor to poor air quality in the UK. Unfortunately, the threat of climate change now hangs over the world and it has been argued that if we do not reduce our polluting emissions we risk the quantity and quality of water resources, crop yields and may even see an increase in climate-related hazards such as droughts and hurricanes, according to the International Panel on Climate Change.”

2. Finding and alternative to plastic/paper. Paper isn’t such a big deal for us, because well, its biodegradable AND we get it from trees, which we get to be lucky enough to know how to replant. We need to find an alternative to plastic that is safe for our environment, and better for us in the long run.

3.  Reinvest habitats instead of destroying them- We need to stop looking for space or land to build on when we already have what we need, old buildings and structures will sit for decades without being touched, we can tear that down and plant trees or reuse to building for something eco-friendly.

 

People and scientists are coming up with new ways all the time to better the earth, our home, everything and everyone living on it. Regardless its up to the people to decide what we want. To keep investing in plastic companies that don’t care about anyone or anything besides themselves or money, or go the eco-friendly route, by buying reusable’s, to help sustain a longer life span for the Earth and the human race. There is no planet b.

Home Cleaning Tricks and Tips!

For some cleaning the house is like therapy, for others, cleaning the house is dreadful. Whether or not you actually enjoy cleaning your house, here are some tricks to help you clean your house efficiently.

  1. Microfiber Couch- microfiber couches are notorious for collecting grease and other sorts of stains. Grab a spray bottle a white bristle brush, and a white sponge. Then fill the spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and go to work! Rubbing alcohol evaporates much faster than water so it wont leave a water stain when you’re scrubbing! After that, scrubbing take the bristle brush and brush the couch in circular motions, this will bring the fluffiness back to the couch, and viola, your couch is like new!
  2. Cleaning oven/kitchen glass- Kitchen glass is the worst, it just seems like no matter how hard you scrub they just wont lighten up. Well, the Mr.Clean magic erasers have actually come in handy. Personally vie always been very weary of the things advertised on TV. But the magic erasers are just that, magic. I’m not sure whats in those things but they do the trick and they do it well. You just need one damp and one dry magic eraser. Cleaning small portions in circular motions and your glass will be cleaned in no time.
  3. Hard Water Stains- cleaning water stains is unnecessarily hard. A new way was found to clean those hard water stains and only a lemon is needed! Just cut a lemon in half and scrub the faucets or the steel and let it sit for fifteen minutes. After that wash off the lemon with warm water.
  4. Bathroom- Bathrooms are actually the worst when it comes to cleaning. But with dish soap, baking soda and peroxide the bathroom will be looking brand new! Mix the ingredients together and scrub the bathtub or needed areas and you’re good to go!
  5. Squeegee Carpeting- Weird, right? Well, if you have a furry pet at home it might not be as weird as it sounds, vacuuming can only go so far and so deep. By squeeegeeing the carpet you’ll be getting deep into the carpet and it will the pet hairs out.
  6. Garbage Disposal- Everyone knows that putting a slice of lemon or orange into the garbage disposal will help it smell cleaner and more fresh. Try cutting the lemon or orange into pieces and freeze it with vinegar, when its done throw it into the disposal and you’re good!
  7. Mattress- Mattresses are probably the MOST important thing to clean, i mean, you sleep on it every night. All you need is baking soda, essential oil, and a vacuum cleaner. Before beginning, flip or rotate the bed, which is smart to do every six months to extend mattress life and prevent sagging. While you’re working on your mattress, toss your bedding in the wash. Open the box of baking soda and add 10 to 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. Close the box and give it a good shake to distribute the essential oil and break up any large clumps. Lavender, chamomile, sandalwood. Sprinkle the baking soda over the bed, using the entire box. Rub the baking soda mixture into the bed, to give it a deeper cleaning. Let the baking soda and essential oil work its magic for at least an hour. After an hour, vacuum the mattress, working slowly to ensure all the baking soda has been removed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               With these small tips and tricks we hope you can clean your house faster, and more efficiently.

Important Yard Maintenance and How Tos

How your lawn/yard looks is just as important as how your home looks, here are some important yard tips so you can keep it healthy and looking good. Not only does it raise your property value but it had other quirks as well. 

  • Provides a safer landscape for sports and activities than artificial surfaces, offering greater cushion and flexibility.
  • Absorbs rainfall six times more effectively than a wheat field, four times better than a hay field.
  • Creates oxygen.
  • Contributes to community green space, helping not only your home improve, but the homes around you as well.
  • Traps pollutants from the atmosphere, cleaning the air.

Here are some tips on keeping your lawn fresh and enjoyable!

  1. Fertilizer

    By fertilizing your lawn you’re lawn (mainly in the fall) you are setting up your lawn to be health, especially during the cold winter months where nothing grows. Choose the right fertilizer. Nitrogen is the nutrient lawns need most, and most lawn fertilizers contain plenty of it.

  2. Seeding

    This can be done multiple ways,one very popular way is called hydroseeding. Hydroseeding  is the fastest, and most cost effective and highest quality method of seeding lawn. Its applied with pressure from the hose or tower onto the soil to create the ideal environment for seed germination and turf development. Grass should start to grow within 7 days, and the new lawn will be well established within 3-4 weeks.

  3. Mowing

    When it comes to mowing most experts say that people mow their lawn and cut the grass way too short. This stresses out the grass, its recommended to raise the mower to its highest level so you’re mowing the top third of the grass. Taller grass promotes better root development.

  4. Water your grass

    A healthy way to water your grass is by doing it once a week but to water deeply. Doing it once a week helps the roots grow deeper into the soil, by watering deeply you can also prevent chinch bugs, a pest that tends to attach dried, stressed out lawns. For a newly seeded lawn, water every day for five to ten minutes only.

  5. Weeds

    Getting rid of weeds is a pain. Experts say using herbicides doesn’t do the trick either. The only way to truly get rid of weeds is to grow such a healthy lawn that it chokes out any chance for the harmful weeds and bugs to get in.

Planting Shrubs/Flowers.

By planting shrubs and flowers you’re allowing the outside of your home to look inviting, its pleasing to the eye and it helps your neighborhood look healthier and cleaner. Of course planting things is a choice,  it wot hurt to plant a flower bed or two of course. So here are some easy steps to planting shrubs and flower beds!

  1. Removing pests/weeds, of course if your lawn is already healthy, you wont have a problem with this step. Its not hard to get rid of weeds either, its recommended by experts to use natural herbicide.
  2. Place the flower beds/shrubs (in their pots) where you want to place them in your yard, its recommended to space the plants out. It looks weird at first but leaving room for the shrubs and flowers to grow is probably the most important step to planting them. You don’t want them to grow out and for it to look mushed together and- wrong.
  3. Once you’ve decided where you want them to go, dig the holes, just make the holes for the plants extra big while incorporating some of the good soil and compost.
  4. Lay a soaker hose or a drip-type system down. Make sure that the hose is next to all the plants.
  5. Cover the entire area with thick layers of newspaper or cardboard. Put the paper underneath the soaker hoses. Steps 4 and 5 can be switched, whichever is easiest.
  6. The last step is to cover the paper with a 2-3 in. layer of mulch, if you can, try to cover the hoses too, but its not a big deal if you cant, your shrubs will be watered either way.

Water Out! 10 Ways To Prevent Pipes from Freezing

Winter brings on the perfect conditions for pipes to freeze and burst. Did you know that pipe bursts are one of the most common causes of property damage during the winter? Pipes that tend to get hit the hardest are in spaces that aren’t heated like attics, basements, garages, and crawl spaces.

However, don’t discount pipes in areas that ARE heated! Pipes that run through heated areas can freeze just as easily if the temperatures plummet low enough. The good news is that there are a few simple things to do that will keep your pipes thawed and water damage from hurting your home!

Here are 10 ways to prevent your pipes from freezing this winter. 

  1. Any water hoses that are normally hooked up outside should be disconnected during freezing temperatures. This will prevent the water inside the hoses from freezing and expanding, which will stop the connected faucets and pipes from breaking and bursting!
  2. Check all outside faucets before winter sets in. If you notice any drips or leaks, call in a plumber or make the necessary repairs yourself!
  3. Shut off the outside water supply if possible! Some homes are equipped with a valve that controls just the outside water flow. Shut this down during winter months.
  4. Cover outside faucets with an insulation kit. These are found at your local hardware stores and are an inexpensive way to prevent water damage!
  5. Any pipes that are in unheated areas like attics, basements, crawl spaces, etc. should be insulated. For an easy insulation fix there is heat tape that is easily installed. For the more ambitious DIYer, thermostat-controlled heat cables also coexist. These can be installed around pipes to keep them from freezing during the winter months.
  6. Your furnace should never be set lower than 55 degrees during the winter. When pipes freeze, water pressure can build and cracks will appear. This can happen in pipes made of copper, steel, or plastic- and even a tiny crack can cause a leak that will leave behind 250 gallons of water EACH DAY.
  7. Before winter hits hard, drain sediment from your water tank. During the winter, your water heater works harder than during the warmer months, and sediment can cause your heater to work over time and be less efficient than normal.
  8. Speaking of your water heater- it should be set at 120 degrees for optimum performance without scalding anyone in the home.
  9. Another outdoor project to complete before winters cleaning the gutters. These should be free of debris and dirt to allow water from the melted snow and ice to flow freely through the entire winter season. If there is a blockage, that water will only leak into your home!
  10. Check your sump pit. Before winter hits, check that your sump pit is free of rocks and debris. Dump a bucket of water to test the pump to ensure it is working properly and will carry all excess water away from the home.

 

How to Thaw Frozen Pipes

Once your pipes are frozen, all is not lost! There are many ways that you can thaw your pipes before they burst.

The first thing to do is keep the faucet pen. As you start to thaw the pipe, the water will begin to melt and it needs somewhere to drain! Any water that runs through the pipe will also help the melting process happen faster.

To begin thawing the pipe you only need a few standard household items! A heating pad, hair dryer, or a space heater are just a few items that REALLY come in handy for a frozen pipe.

A heating pad can be physically wrapped around the pipe, hitting areas that may be a little more difficult for a space heater or blow dryer. A space heater is great for prolonged period of time, and a blow dryer is perfect if the pipe is in a small area!

Once you start to melt the pipes, you will notice water beginning to trickle through the faucet. Keep going with your heating process- this means it’s working! Restoring to full water pressure is the goal. If this doesn’t happen with these home remedies, a professional plumber may be needed.

 

Water Damage

Unfortunately, there are times when water damage does happen as a result of frozen pipes. We can do everything right to prevent it, but circumstances beyond our control cause flooding, mold, or mildew. In situations like this, a professional water restoration company is necessary to ensure your property is returned to normal in the shortest amount of time.
