Four Critical Tips for Cleaning Up after a Flood Strikes


The value of knowing how to respond to an emergency has never been so clear, with one of the worst hurricane seasons ever behind us. Educating yourself on what to do in a flood, therefore, is one of the key disaster preparedness issues. Here are some valuable tips homeowners should be aware of when cleaning up damage left behind by a flood.

Dont Go Near the Water: Floodwaters can be some of the most contaminated water you will ever come in contact with. Seek medical attention right away if you or a family member has been exposed to flood waters for any length of time. Topical floodwater contact could lead to serious infections. If you believe you or anyone else has drunk floodwater, seek medical care at your local hospital or clinic as soon as possible, as the dangers of infection are even worse.

Tread Lightly: Stay out of any buildings or structures that still have floodwaters encircling them. Dont underestimate structural damage floodwaters can cause. A structure's foundation can be significantly weakened by floodwaters in relatively short periods of time, especially in older structures. Foundations can sink and become unstable, causing cracks and gaps in the flooring, even a house total collapse without warning. An apparently sound structure may also have suffered gas leaks, electrical damage, or water line damage, so you should steer clear of such buildings until local officials have declared them safe .

Wait Until the All-Clear: Just because the rain has stopped and the floodwater seems to be withdrawing, doesnt mean its safe to go home and start cleaning up. Of course youll be anxious to find out what damage if any has been done to your property, but sometimes, floodwater damage creates many a hazard that requires professional clean up before the area is cleared as safe to local area residents. Keep watching for information on the weather if you have access to local radio or television stations, which will inform you of any threat from incoming storms, or other floodwater-related dangers in your area.

Handle with Care: You should inspect flood-damaged buildings cautiously once local officials have judged the area safe. Start with examining your house carefully. Tread carefully; flood damage can weaken structures. Do not smoke inside the building. (gas leak hazard) Bring battery-operated flashlights or lanterns as electricity may be cut off. Study the floors, walls, doors, staircases, and windows closely to make sure the house is not in danger of collapsing, using the flashlight to look at the foundation for cracks or other signs of damage.

After you've examined the structural integrity of the building, check for damage to the utility systems. Find and note down damage to the building's gas, electrical, and sewage system. Check for gas leaks by listening for a small hissing noise and smelling the gas in the air. If you suspect a gas leak, shut off the main valve immediately and contact the gas company.

Scrutinize the building's electrical system. Any broken, frayed, or loose wires are spots for worry. If you see any sparks or smell any burning, immediately turn off the electricity at the circuit breaker or fuse box.

You will also need to check out your homes sewage system. Avoid using the toilet and call a plumber if you believe the sewage lines have been damaged. If fresh water pipes have also been damaged, call your water company and dont drink water from the tap.


All About of Bird Feeders

Bird Feeders

Are you into bird watching? Do you already own a bird table or feeder? If you have a garden (or just a balcony) you can leave the wellies in the shed and do not even have to buy binoculars to enjoy avian wildlife in the UK. There is a very easy way to attract British birds to come directly to your home , hop around your garden and maybe even nest in your hedges.

When decorating your front or back garden , think of the garden birds as well and buy a bird table , bird feeder or feeding station.

Although there are some basics that already attract many different kinds of garden birds , there are different kinds of bird feeders as well as different kinds of bird food to choose from. Here is a list of common types of bird feeders:

Bird Table

A bird table is basically a tray or flat dish where seed mixes or sunflower seeds are placed on. Birds just hop onto the table and pick up the seeds. Buy a bird table with a roof top to protect the food from getting wet from the rain. Wooden bird tables with a roof are also very attractive garden decorations.

Hanging Seed Feeders and Suet Feeders

Such types of bird feeders can be hung from tree branches or bird tables or installed on poles. They are also part of entire bird feeder stations that can contain several seed feeders , bird tables as well as additional coconut shells or other suet and fat bars or rings.

If you want to attract goldfinches , greenfinches , or siskins specifically , try nyjer seeds. Since those seeds are very small , you will need a nyjer seed feeder. The generic seed feeders are too big and bird tables are not suitable since any wind would blow away the little nyjer seeds.

Ground Feeders

Window Bird Feeders

A very special kind of bird feeder are bird tables or even little plastic houses that come with suction cups and can be attached to your window. They are often entirely made of clear plastic. That way you can watch the garden birds eating their food from your feeder directly in front of your window.

The Right Food on the Table

Just make sure the mix is fresh and not mouldy and does not contain any big pieces like peas , barley , rice or lentils , which cannot be eaten by most garden birds.

Also make sure to clean your bird feeder or bird table regularly. Clean away the dirt birds leave behind as well as any remains and old bird food.

Protecting your Bird Feeder from Squirrels and Cats

While squirrels just steal your birds' food , cats are a real danger. If you own a cat yourself that has access to the garden , you should reconsider installing a bird feeder or table. But even if you do not own a cat yourself , you have to make sure to keep your feeding station as safe as possible.

Install your bird feeder in a quiet place away from any hiding places like your shed , bushes or the hedge , trees , roofs or even your garden furniture where a cat could lie waiting for prey. Keeping the bird table or feeder away from climbing and covered areas also helps keeping the squirrels away a little. To protect from cats , you can also install guards on the pole on which your bird feeder or table stands. Thorny vegetation under the feeder might help as well. Other options might be deterrents that work with sound , or a well behaved dog that scares the cat away but leaves the birds in peace to enjoy their meal at your bird table or feeding station.

Bird Bath

Since birds need to drink as well as eat , consider installing a bird bath as well. Once you have decided on your new bird feeder or bird table , have a look at the selection of bird baths Wayfair is offering for purchase.

    Very happy with this purchase. Took 2 people to assemble and took a few hours . It was quite fiddly but straightforward when we got going.

    We bought the pillows for our patio furniture first, then had to find a bin to store them. Perfect size for our needs. We selected this one also because it was not that ugly putty color that we see so often; this will be less conspicuous in our setting. This one had been out of stock, but I'm glad I waited for it to become available again. Came back on daily sale in wayfair, so I snapped it up. Speaking of snapping, I should mention that it was super-easy to assemble.

    Below is my original review before I realised that the item sent to me isn't exactly the one described on the website - www.boisecloggers.com are selling something that is not as described, which is in breach of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. I've emailed www.boisecloggers.com a number of times explaining in detail the differences between the two items and they respond like they haven't read the emails. Basically, be aware that the shape of the item is slightly different for the walnut and oak than shown in the pics - it is the shape as shown in grey option. The weight capacity they have listed on website as 110kg, is actually on the supplied instructions as 100kg - which is a difference of 1.5st (but neither of these options are particularly great for what also claims to be a 2 seater). The pdf instructions on the website are also different and state that there's an included wall strap to prevent from toppling, but this isn't the case in the item being sent. As mentioned in my original review, the finish is worse than the photos and the walnut colour is also a darker brown - but then it is a different item to the one shown so I guess that's the reason - although www.boisecloggers.com don't want to admit it is a different item. "Disappointing with how cheap this looks, was aware it was laminated chipboard but it looks worse than in pictures online. Ordered walnut colour but it's more a warmer, chocolate brown than shown online - the pictures look lighter (yes I'm comparing the walnut pictures, not the other colours) and may have matched with our floor a bit better. Every edge where two strips of laminate meet there is a line of a lighter colour, so on a dark brown unit there's all these light lines highlighting every edge - not a look i find appealing either. Also in a few places the edge of the laminate was quite jagged and rough looking, and in some places there was clearly a chip that had been filled in during the manufacturing process with some brown filler, but luckily they occurred on sides we could hide. The whole unit was fairly straightforward to put together with every part fitting together well enough - but not perfectly; however, the instruction's pages were printed in an odd order, so check the page numbers as you go. Once constructed it seems sturdy enough, but the instructions say it should only support 100kg in weight (just over 15 stone), but due to its width it looks like it could fit 2 people, so it's a bit feeble it can barely hold one large adult - going to have to potentially insult guests when they go to use it and you're only allowing certain people on it. The cushion is also quite disappointing, but other reviews had mentioned that, so I was prepared; it is wipe clean though."

    Absolutely lovely set that fits perfectly on the balcony. Quite comfortable and easy cleaning cushions. Only tiny addition needed (or advice) would be to get clips to hold some of the seating together, if you are putting on decking or hard flooring as it may slide apart.

    The look is great. The quality of the rattan is not that great (not strong) and the cushions are soaked in fire-retardant which is really not eco-friendly nor good for the body. It started dripping off when the rain hit the cushions.

    It is smaller than it appears! Difficult to store high-tops in the small shelves. But it looks quite decent and can hold 10 pairs of shoes. So go for it if you are looking to shelve only that many pairs or will be using it as a supplementary to a main shoe rack

    We purchased various sizes for different areas of the yard/patio. This one held up just fine. The box still closes properly and hasn't warped in any way over the season.
