Protect Your Home From the Destruction of Indoor Mildew

Indoor mildew will eventually destroy any surface on which it grows. Protect Your Home From the Destruction of Indoor Mildew, Once you have mildew in your home it is difficult to get rid of, but the good news is that preventing mildew is a lot easier. Here are 4 ways to prevent mildew from getting a foothold in your home and destroying your possessions. In this case an ounce of prevention is worth way more than the pound of cure.

Eliminate Moisture

Mildew spores are a part of life, but they become a part of your life when they find moisture inside your home. Decrease moisture in the bathroom by using a fan that is ducted to the outside. Wipe shower walls dry after showering to get rid of excess water. Make your basement as dry as possible by sealing the exterior with a waterproofing product. Cook with the lids on pots and use a kitchen fan ducted to the outside to exhaust moisture. Use air conditioning and a dehumidifier in the summer and heat in the winter to decrease excess moisture in your home.
Shut Down Food Source

Because mildew is a tiny plant, it grows by feeding on the smallest bits of dust, dirt, and food crumbs; so it is important to keep fabrics such as upholstery, carpet and draperies clean, as well as cleaning and drying clothes and shoes before storing in closets or drawers. Keeping kitchen counters, stoves, back splashes and floors free of crumbs and oily residue is essential in deterring the growth of mildew.


Keep Air Moving

Circulating air is an excellent way to prevent moisture build up. Leave closet doors and drawers open occasionally to help dry out any moisture that may have accumulated. When relative humidity outside is less than that inside, open the windows and/or use a fan to introduce dry air and lessen humidity levels inside.


Eliminate Airborne Mildew Spores

Since it is impossible to keep mildew spores from coming indoors, eliminating the spores while they are still airborne and before they find water or food is an effective way to prevent mildew from growing. A high efficiency particle arresting air purifier is designed to remove 99,997 out of every 10,000 particles including mildew spores. Constant elimination of the spores greatly reduces the chance of mildew making their home your home.

Castle used for Independent Film





Created by Tobias Dawson
The castle photos were sent by Tobias Dawson. The model should be used in a small independent film. Here's what he had to say about the model:

"I am a production designer with a small independent film company Prometheus Motion Pictures. We are producing a micro-budget film entitled "folklore" that required me to build a small castle for a model Greenscreen panoramic shot. I had a little time and very little budget, and I hunt around online for a product that would allow me a good degree of flexability design and good looks and the capacity of our facility in a short time and budget frameworks.

I decided to give it a try and ordered mussels # 45, # 63, # 70 and # 201. I had a great time designing and building the model itself, which was created during about a month using your blocks and a variety of custom, I made molds. The castle is an exception in two sections, so that it can be modified to a sequence in which it must be first used, then ruinous. I thought that building a model that had removable "good" sections which can be replaced by "rubble" sections would be faster and simpler than the construction of two models.

The material was used plaster of Paris I, stuck with wood glue. As he was not going to be used in any kind of game situation, durability was secondary compared to the cost. I painted with some cheap craft acrylic paint that my friend had on, with and under spray on primer gray. I really have a great time building this thing (in fact, this is my first model stage ...) and since then I have always been tempted to buy more mussels and build more things ... It really is addictive. Very good product! "

Exterior Design

When you are trying to build a home, most people have a tendency to focus on internal planning for exterior leaves the house design a simple late in the day. However, what the others are not easy to understand, is that the best exterior design is the first impression that a new home should turn their heads in their direction.

A number of home owners use huge amounts of money and time for internal planning and design of the floor. But what they forget is no matter how beautiful the house looks inside, it may simply be let down, which is attracted by the exterior. Some people, especially those who intend to build houses on places where there is an inherent unappealing around the reluctance to accept that there is quite a lot of anything else they can do than to accept a fact of life.

What is the exterior design of the building Can you give? What motive would you rather have been in such a way that you can organise a oman outside the home color design?

Color and Harmony Home


Color and Harmony Home
Understanding Color Harmonies

Color wheel is a simple but effective tool that allows you to create the perfect color combination. Color wheel is divided into 12 parts. These colors are placed in a circle, so that it is easier to see how the combinations can be developed.

The following is the most popular color harmonies:

* Analogous colors are the colors next to each other, the color wheel. These colors work well together when you are looking to limit the contrast and create a calm, serene color combination. These combinations usually include 3 color.
* Complementary colors are directly opposite each other in the color wheel. The complementary combination of only 2 colors, for example, is a red and green. These colors, combined with the most contrast, especially when they are used to their sense of the most vibrant form.
* A Triad is the case where you have chosen the color, and instead used to supplement, when you use the two colors on both sides of complementary color, and the result is a 3-color combination, which is less contrast.

Even if there is more color harmonies other than these three, this will be the most powerful and most frequently used for exterior combinations. The relations to ensure a balance and it is pleasing to the eye. Keep in mind that not all the colors should be used as one, a single color should dominate, or to take a leading role, while others play a supporting role, while retaining the uniqueness of oman.
Warm vs. Cool colors

Colors are divided into warm and cool tones, which is based on their position in the color spectrum. Reds, yellows and oranges make up the warm side of the spectrum, while the blues, purples and greens cover the cooler tones.

Warm colors to bring the excitement. When compared to their responses to cooler, warm colors seem larger, more visible and more easily.

Cool colors are relaxing and comforting. Often, cooler shades used in more northern regions of the country, while warmer colors have become more prominent in the south. This is the result of the quality of the natural light of each region, and colors can be found in each of the natural environment.

On 2 May and 3, 2008, Cyclone Nargis roztrhaný across the southern part of the Union of Myanmar (also known as Burma) in Southeast Asia, destroying 95 percent of buildings, killing an estimated 127990 people and displacing more than 2 million people, according to the American Red Cross . In a few days later, the nonprofit Architecture for Humanity activated fundraising efforts to promote volunteer architects, engineers and other experts in the construction industry in-country as reconstruction begins.

In 24 hours, San Francisco-based organization had raised $ 10000, 48 hours after the collection started, the total doubled. "That tells you what is the design community can do when you together," says co-founder and executive director Kate Stohr.

As a follow-up to 12 May 2008, 7.9 earthquake leveled that a large part of the Chinese provinces of Sichuan, the organization calls for architects to help after the construction information, links to such information, and earthquake-resistant design strategies to its open architecture network to support the building of architects and experts on the ground China, the rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts. Post-disaster, these experts often work without immediate access to design libraries and technical resources that most architects working in the office available.

If the local professional resources are insufficient, Architecture for Humanity-supported teams to develop low-cost housing and more community-scale solutions that are regionally and contextually appropriate for the area in crisis-such as destroyed, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes or a grant engineering support for organizations working on reconstruction of communities. In the post-disaster situation in Myanmar, "our main objectives would be to provide architecture and design services in the ways they're most needed," said Stohr.

This means that schools, community rooms, hospitals and civic buildings, which will serve those who need it sectors of society are the first projects targeted. "This is the meat and potatoes of what enables the community to work," he says. "They often can not even begin to do large-scale housing works until you have the community room for meetings and effective delivery of services."

Architecture for Humanity began mobilization project teams, which will be paid their design services and expertise to Myanmar on the rebuilding effort. The body will then reach out to other relief organizations to offer in-country partnerships.

Stohr expects that the organisation of work in Myanmar will be far more complex than previous attempts because the country has concluded the government doors to foreign aid of all, but also other Asian countries.

Architecture for Humanity continue to raise funds to support efforts in Myanmar. Ideally, Stohr said its leadership would like to achieve the same level of involvement is controlled by the post-Katrina efforts, not only to promote professional designers, but the financing of construction work as well. This allows the organization to monitor the work and ensure that structures are built under the project.

The widespread destruction of houses and other buildings in Myanmar from the cyclone and the absolute devastation wrought by the earthquake and aftershocks in China may serve as a wake-are prompted to those governments and others around the world, that buildings should be constructed so as to better deal with extreme weather and geological events.

One way, the average architects can help them resolve their housing for the storm, flood, earthquake zones and the open architecture network (www.openarchitecturenetwork.org), which is available for those who work on projects of reconstruction in disaster areas around the the world.
