Natural Materials

Natural Materials

Many of the errors hurt comfort, some ravaged our wallets, only a few are harmful to our health. The myth of the usefulness of natural materials, one of them. It is not necessary to concentrate on the percentage of cotton, linen, wool, in various forms obbivki this fact or does not harm you, the consumer – the user only helps manufacturers increase the Number of sales, your desire and commitment to the whole 'natural' are known to managers, marketers. Let's talk about the natural components of "soft friends", or rather batting, mat, sea grass, burlap, wool, cotton and other similar, carefully hidden within the depths of the sofa. These materials are undoubtedly popular, "rasskrucheny" always in demand, but the question as to whether they are useful as we think? Previous history of these materials is simple, at the time of their mass use in ancient times, quite simply had no alternative … not Considering the bare planks and straw. Anyway, the sofas in the reign of King Peas were considered a luxury! At first glance it seems that bad, put on a sofa springs natural felt, after a magnificent natural-fiber cotton cover is not large layer of batting and secure the burlap canvas upper …

Here! Sofa ready to obbivke cloth. Now let's see what happens to these wonderful fillings later, unspecified Number of years. Opening the sofa, looking closely see inside … sleduyueschee burlap covered with strange spots, well, perhaps a fungus? Oh yes, you think when it moved and he found himself in the dampness in the garage, maybe just get wet and appeared as a consequence of the fungus. More fertile environment than natural hemp sacking hard to imagine. Ok, so mold fungus, we are not biologists, can not judge the harmfulness or usefulness, can be a useful substance, who knows. Look further, torn burlap, we see a thin layer of leveling the batting, then a thin layer of black obscure, small as a peppercorn "stuff." Ask what it is? God knows, but let's activity remains unknown insects, but the insects were gone …

so, sir, intrigued by the fact that we break symmetry batting, look at the thick, lush layer of natural wool. Inner margins completely littered with "crooked", dead insects, spiders, ants, cockroaches, fleas, bedbugs, lice! If the sofa was in the country, or was temporarily in the garage, it is possible find the rare, interesting facts, how – the tunnels carefully, skillfully proedennye by someone bigger than a spider. Tracing for "Burrows" and find yourself "house", the former dwelling place of a family of mice. Summary. Any animals, which had access to the couch, whether it runs, flies, crawls, no doubt stop choice (where to live) on your sofa, because there is no more successful space than natural materials – warm, quiet, in the case of hunger can be, the most natural materials, chew! Therefore, we recommend a strong advocate of natural, looping your desires and try to be that in the couch to the maximum was attended by more than 'natural'. Cover the bed blanket (wool, linen), and sleep well on the 'natural'. The presence of different living things in the couch is a gathering, a collection of various bacteria, microbes, with terror is what's going on in there, and how it affects our skin and health. Regular sofa ejection of dust to the health care becomes a voluntary suicide, god knows what Number of bacteria flies through the air: Be careful! It is not always what it seems good, so is!

Protect Wooden Surfaces

Protect Wooden Surfaces

Usually fresh material crumble within a year. The very fact that spalling did not affect either the strength of the wood or on its other properties, it only spoils the appearance of wood surfaces. If you delete the top layer, the tree will once again its original appearance. Prevent this phenomenon can be a timely application of antiseptic or refinishing. Much more dangerous for wood is the so-called "Blue." It occurs mostly at high humidity and temperature 10-25o C.

It promotes the emergence of blue and the stillness of the surrounding air. Crude, svezhespilennaya wood is more susceptible to blue than The dried. However, the dry wood may turn blue in the presence of the above conditions. Heavily exposed to blue pine. The very blue, contrary to popular belief, does not alter the mechanical properties of wood. However, it is a precursor of rotting wood (the defeat of the fungus and other microorganisms), and its presence indicates the excessive humidity of the material. Proper design of structures, the protection of wood special structures and regulation of humidity (with ventilation) can prevent the emergence and impact of destroying microorganisms. The worst enemies of wood are fungi, mold, bacteria and antimitsety (a cross between fungi and algae).

They not only detracts from the appearance, but also destroy the fibers and softening the wood, causing irreparable damage to joists. Professionals are distinguished types of rot (the result of exposure to wood micro-organisms) by color (red, white, gray, yellow, green). Red rot affects coniferous wood, white and yellow – an oak and birch, green – with oak barrels, as well as wooden beams and floors cellar. The worst enemy of the houses is a white mushroom house. In one month he can "eat" chetyrehsantimetrovy oak floor. Earlier in the villages of the house, which hit the fungus, burned immediately to save from getting all the other buildings.

Summer Heat and Health

Summer Heat and Health

Atmosphere, ventilation and heating. This may not be crude basement: cutting surface and blades and tines TOTAL rust and will be ruined; electric sours, batteries run down, the clothes otsyreet and more spoil you for the basement – not the best place for your health.

Better, whatever was in the summer not hot, and winter was the meaning of this building warm.

That is a tin shed is not the best option – a red sun in the summer and in winter it progreesh hell, so you do not to work in such a workshop would be. And the machine you can easily appear – and stupid to keep it at ambient temperature. Stone or wooden house – quite that. And the need to insulate the hangar, so sho ‘Mama – Do not Cry’, asks the foam – but the foam will not: a well-lit. Warm electricity is more convenient, but you will have to be a lot of scraps of wood and all combustible rubbish. Therefore, even in summer – not to mention the winter – turns out to be a useful type of stove or oven ‘bulleryan’ – and less garbage, and probably around some drovenyachki grow, and in general the heat from the fire more fun than on teploduek. Yes, and something better to burn in the stove, than to bury between garden beds …
