The are many different types of vacuum cleaners and carpet cleaning machines but they all work by using the same principal or idea. A vacuum is created in a tube or system and air is drawn into the system through a filter which catches debris and then the air is diffused from the unit out of an exhaust.

The residential upright vacuum cleaner uses the suction principal combined with a spinning brush at the suction opening which is located on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. As the brush, which is commonly known as a beater bar, spins at a high rate of speed this beats the carpet and pushes and debris toward the suction opening. Once the debris has reached the suction opening air forces the debris into a filter bag which catches the debris but lets the air pass through. Once the air moves passed the filter bag it is expelled through an exhaust vent usually located on the handle box unit of the vacuum cleaner. Residential vacuums are given this name because they usually have one motor that runs the whole vacuum cleaner. This motor spins the brush and also operates the suction fan. Due to increased stress on one motor these types of vacuum cleaners do not have the longevity of a commercial vacuum but are priced relatively low.

Commercial vacuum cleaners work on the same principal as residential vacuum cleaners but are built for abuse and constant operation. Commercial vacuum cleaner parts are usually readily available and can be replaced by a vacuum cleaner technician. Most commercial vacuum cleaners utilize two motors, one running the beater brush and the other running the suction fan or fans. These types of vacuums also utilize that latest technologies by using circuit boards to distribute the power to the vacuums two motors only when needed. On some newer commercial vacuum cleaners when the suction wand is used the beater brush motor will turn off or divert extra power for suction utilizing the entire motor potential of the vacuum cleaner.

Wet dry vacuums work on the same vacuum suction principal but extra safeguards must be put in place so that water does not come in contact with any electrical components or the motor. Wet dry vacuum cleaner motors are usually positioned on top of a debris canister and air is drawn in through the hose and up through the motor to an exhaust vent positioned on top. If water starts to reach the motor at the top of the canister a floating ball will close of the opening into the motor saving the motor from water damage. All on and off switches and electrical components on wet dry vacuums are sealed to prevent water penetration.

Cyclonic vacuum cleaners use high powered motors to create a vortex in the vacuum which creates suction. A beater bar pushes debris into the suction tube which is then drawn up into a sealed canister. Once in the canister the debris is moved toward the outer walls using centrifugal forces. The debris then slows down and is dropped into the bottom of the canister by utilizing gravity. Most cyclonic vacuums don’t use filter bags but sometimes this can compromise air quality because of escaping dust particles.

These days different types of vacuum cleaners are made for a specific purpose. It is recommended that you purchase a vacuum that fits it’s duties. If you plan to use your vacuum cleaner multiple hours everyday of the week it is not advisable to buy a residential vacuum cleaner. You will save money up front but most residential vacuums will probably not hold up over time and you will have to replace it faster. If wet floors are an issue then your best bet is a wet dry vacuum, most upright dry vacuums can stand some water but it will effect the performance of your vacuum cleaner over time.

Roofing Underlayment

Roofing underlayment is the second layer protection that is essential to a roofing system. It provides protection from moisture and other elements that is detrimental to the roof’s life span. A growing number of homeowners are now conscious of the right roofing underlayment for their roofing system. Felt, synthetics, and self-adhering ice-and-water barriers are the three types of underlayment that homeowners can choose from and avail in the market today.

The essential factors though, in considering the right material for underlayments should be borne in mind. A good material must be fire retardant, thus protecting the roofing system and the entire building in case of fire incidence. It should withstand the ferocity of strong winds that might lift it and eventually tear it out. Underlayment material should be hard enough to get holes in it. In this case possible leaks are prevented. Lastly, it should be strong enough to accommodate heavy downpour. Underlayment may mean an additional expense for the household, but this could actually mean a lot of saving in the long run because your property will be protected for a longer period of time.

Felt paper, or just felt is a material that is literally made of paper soaked in asphalt. It has been used fro more than five decades now because it is manageable to install and reasonably priced. That disadvantage of felt though is that it can tear easily especially during hot climate. Since the material is not porous, it tends to contain moisture and can be burdensome in installing because it has a slippery exterior that might cumbersome to the one installing it.

Polypropylene-based underlayment is the latest in the market today. It provides the same purpose as a second-degree protection from destructive elements to your roofing system. Synthetic underlayment is sturdier and lighter that asphalt-saturated felt. It is much safer to install because it does not slip like felt does. The catch is, synthetic underlayment are priced much higher that felt but it gives better protection to your roof and last longer too. Some synthetic underlayments are made of polyester or fiberglass fabric.

An undelayment that is used primarily to protect from ice and water is the Self-adhering ice-and-water barrier. The name suggests that this underlayment needs no fasteners in installing which means holes are avoided. The trend originally began in New England where winter is terrible and ice would accumulate on rooftops. This underlayment can be used on top of felt or synthetics since it covers the punctures caused by nails and staples in installing paper or synthetic underlayment.

A strong roofing underlayment is truly essential in achieving a good roofing system that is made to last long. A good investment on underlayment will make a great deal in protecting your property and family as well.

There are times that we can never curb the forces of nature. This just goes to show that nature is, indeed, powerful and can destroy anything and everything. So, the only way we can do is to provide protection from the raging effects of nature.

One way to do this is through waterproofing. Waterproofing has been a great technique in preventing the penetration of water to any material.

Whenever you waterproof a material, you apply a certain waterproof matter that is designed to provide utmost protection against the imminent effect of water. This, in turn, serves as a wall between the material and water.

There are many types of waterproofing. One of them is canvas waterproofing. This method is used particularly on materials made of canvas.

In most instances, the typical type of cotton canvas is already a waterproof material. Therefore, it does not need any waterproofing. Its fibers puff up whenever they are exposed to water, thus, it closes the knits of the canvas.

However, because of the canvas’ vulnerability to mildew and “bird droppings,” it is still subjected to canvas waterproofing. This is because canvas waterproofing does not only protect the canvas from water alone but also from other substances that can cause damage on the item.

So, for those who want to know about canvas waterproofing, here are some pointers you need to know:

1. Do not use silicone-based canvas waterproofing.

Never attempt to use silicone-based canvas waterproofing on acrylic canvas. Silicone clashes with the original application.

Normally, acrylic canvas primarily contains a canvas waterproofing chemical known as fluorocarbon, which in turn, repels the silicone material when applied. If this happens, it will result into an erratic treatment. Silicon can also eliminate the “stain-resistance” substance in the acrylic canvas.

2. Use a product with fluoropolymer.

When doing canvas waterproofing, it is best that you use a fluoropolymer-based substance. This type of canvas waterproofing is compatible with the acrylic canvas. Hence, it will result into a more durable and sturdy acrylic canvas.

3. Use a waterproof material that contains petroleum.

Petroleum-based materials have long been proven to be effective when doing a canvas waterproofing. They are very compatible with acrylic canvas. Petroleum-based substances work best in canvas waterproofing than those substances that are water-based.

The best way to identify a petroleum-based substances to be used in canvas waterproofing is to through its pungent smell.

4. When performing canvas waterproofing, do it outdoors.

It is best that you do canvas waterproofing outside the house because of the substance’s very strong odor. You might get suffocated once you do it inside the house. Therefore, it is best that you do canvas waterproofing where there is proper ventilation.

Besides, these strong substances used in canvas waterproofing can also damage your furniture made of plastics. So, it is a must that you take extra care when doing canvas waterproofing.

5. Use protective covers for sensitive furniture.

If you will do a canvas waterproofing on a canvas dodger, it is best that you protect your plastic furniture first before you start with the process. You can do this by placing foil over the plastic materials.

6. Do a spot test first.

It is best that before you start the process, do a spot test first. This is to know whether the substance used in canvas waterproofing will not discolour your canvas or cause further damage.

7. Remove the canvas from the boat.

It is best that before you start waterproofing, you should first remove the canvas from the boat. This is to ensure that the hard surfaces will not slick. Also, there are waterproofing substances that can cause a damaging reaction against gelcoat.

However, if you find this tedious and very unworkable, try to protect all areas vulnerable to “overspray” instead.

8. Let it dry first.

After waterproofing, let the canvas dry first before reinstalling it. In this manner, the pungent smell will soon be eliminated.

However, experts strongly suggest that after the canvas has been dried, it would be better to apply a second dose of waterproofing. This is to ensure durability of the material. It is still safe to do this and will not affect the fabric’s overall condition.

9. Reapply when necessary.

Repeat the process whenever the canvas is exposed in callous conditions. Though, experts say that after doing a waterproofing, the protection is guaranteed for one year at the least.

So, now that you know how to do canvas waterproofing, you can be assured that your canvas will always stay in top condition. As they say, it is better to prevent damage than to cure it.

Catalogs should be complete with the information your target customers would want to know. But information alone is not enough, there should be images included to give the customer an idea of what the products look like.

catalog, printing, design

Think of catalogs as more than the appetizer of your business. Think of it as the main course.

Every customer who gets hold of your catalog would want to know everything. From product specifications to prices, they would cram for information. This is why your catalog should be complete with the information your target customers would want to know. But information alone is not enough, there should be images included to give the customer an idea of what the products look like. To get quality product photos you have to consider several factors such as the camera that you will use, the use of lights and the printing process. Digital cameras are always a good choice. Aside from convenience and control in use, it also has long term cost savings. Digital cameras are also more flexible with lighting. When you are able to get hold of a good digital camera you will get excellent and professional photos that will look great in your catalog.

When taking the picture always make the product as the focal point. As much as possible avoid taking group pictures because they are less favorable and saleable than products pictured individually. When you are soliciting the help of a professional photographer, aside from taking the photos make sure also that they will do the image processing for you. And if your design will require group shots, outdoor shots or special backgrounds, it is better to sketch the shots first in a paper and give them to the photographer beforehand to make sure that the photographer understands what you want for the shots.

Although some companies attempt to save money by doing the photography themselves and trying to group together products, such strategy often results in poor sales. Understand that your goal is to sell so it is essential that the images are effective and interesting as much as possible. But don’t expect the catalog alone to do the sale for you. Remember that the purpose of a catalog is the provide information and to encourage the customer to contact you. The catalog can get you the customer you need but you must make the sale.

Nonetheless, it never hurts to bend some rules and experiment a little with your photos. Just make sure that you know what you are doing and why you are doing it. By getting creative yourself you will be surprised with the boost in sales and profits.

Roofing Supply

Every single time you consider purchasing any product in the market, it is always safe to keep in mind to choose certain merchandise that would assure you that you’d get your money’s worth. This attitude is also highly valuable when choosing any roofing supply. Cheap, low quality products would ultimately prove to be an unnecessary expense in the long run. Your main objective should be to end up purchasing a certain roofing supply with the best deal.

One way to save on roofing supply costs is to cut short the supply chain and purchase directly from the manufacturers. Most of the time, big companies are reluctant to sell in minute quantities, and are quite hard to locate. But once you are able to manage this, you will certainly find out that all your efforts will definitely not go to waste.

Another significant detail with regards to purchasing any roofing supply is to never make any compromises. Once you have some essential directions from your manufacturer in using their products only with some particular sizes, make sure to conform to their specifications or else the long-term consequences can be quite drastic.

When choosing slate or tile roofing make sure to purchase them only from one manufacturer. This is particularly when dealing with slates. You are most likely to find a hard time matching the color of the slates and would prove to be a nightmare scenario you certainly can do without.

A good idea for further reducing the cost in purchasing roofing supplies would be to buy in bulk to avail some great discounts. Take time to polish your shopping skills and will prove to be handy especially in you are in a rather tight budget.
In purchasing any roofing supply do not solely focus on the cost but also the timing should be right. Keep in mind that roofs can only be built during moderate weather conditions. This only means that you have to be attentive on the delivery time if you are ordering a particular roofing supply. Do not confidently assume that deliveries will come it time, since minor delays are quite unavoidable.
Overall, when purchasing a particular roofing supply, there are four main considerations: the cost, the quality of the product, consistency and right timing. If you will be able to keep an eye on all these factors, you will considerably cut down the probability of delays and unnecessary expense. Such extra concern would definitely give a stress-free roofing experience.

Stained glass has been used to decorate and enhance buildings for centuries. The breathtaking stained glass windows in cathedrals attract thousands of tourists each year. With the popularity of stained glass windows, it is no surprise that people began to create other things from stained glass. Today, you can find many products made with stained glass, from lamps to mirrors. However, how can you decorate with stained glass? There are several things you can do to fit stained glass into your home.

First, you may want to consider putting stained glass in your windows. After all, the sunlight shining through a window is the reason that stained glass looks so beautiful. If you don’t have room for a stained glass window in your budget, look for a sun catcher or a faux window that is designed to hang in front of your real window.

Of course, if you don’t have natural light, you can still enjoy the beauty of stained glass with an accent lamp that has a stained glass shade. When the lamp is on, the light bulb will shine through the shade, creating an effect almost as beautiful as natural light shining through a stained glass window. Accent lamps work best as secondary lighting, since they usually require low wattage bulbs. Tuck a lamp into a dark corner to provide a bit of color and enough lighting for someone to sit and read. You can also use these lamps on sofa tables, night stands, or desks.

Chandeliers are another great way to enjoy stained glass in the home. You can place a chandelier in the traditional spot over the center of the dining room table, but why not have a little fun with your decorating? Try placing a stained glass chandelier in your hallway to give your entryway more impact or in your sunroom to add a touch of whimsy.

Next, you may want to add a stained glass mirror to your bathroom. You can find mirrors with a traditional stained glass design around the edges or mirrors with fun themes, such as beach scenes or wild animals.

Finally, you can create your own faux stained glass on any glass or mirrored surface. You can really dress up your glass fronted cabinets, the panes of glass in your front door, or the top of your glass coffee table with stained glass paint. Simply trace the pattern you want with black piping and then fill in with these colorful, see through paints.

Whoever they are you have to make sure that your catalogs would appeal to them and encourage them to read through the whole pages. So if you want to bank on more cash and profits, then carefully plan your catalogs and make its wonder work for you.
