Good morning everyone and welcome back to be home at prudential here and advocates having this is the second hour. Of the home improvement show we're all between now in twelve yum. And we're answering questions if you're just tuning in which new questions related to. Home repairs for electrical. Plumbing commission pain mean carpentry. Our if you have questions about dusts. Air conditioning systems with duct leaks cleaning your ducks. Energy efficiency comfort moisture. It's all open for discussion will be given that phone number. It's 50426. So when it seventy we have 12 spots available for you to call in nail and that your question laugh when the radio. I'm saying that let's go straight to the phone lines and speak with David hey David good morning welcome. To show good morning I do. Wonderful but. Up to two -- nutria has ceramic outdone my moral house and when they died did so we got more probably in any. Typical reader in yeah ego more trouble. She. You saw. The steel over first he says this should ticket at a more problems. With it did. I got the salt the pot is competent to Zardari and helps us and it would just won't somebody use pull McCain in the rubble. I don't know there was a right so you should use. DiNardo probably more exchange in new assault weapons Comodo. Or cannot do. Sartre go up and try to get some moderate to moderate. So. Here's the thing dealings with. With with moisture. Is that. There's a few things you can do short over an open dornin with that its product. You need to try and the step back when we talk about some of the dynamics obviously talking about a slab on grade home. And the bush is coming through the country in some people think that water. Won't come through the current treatment but it does concrete stuff but hearts boy and she hit it takes longer to keep it current treatment other. You know assemblies but it would deftly compute the concrete end. It's it's coming up between them this from Powell actually in the grout. In this leaving the those deposits of its reach in salt of the country in them. So that being said dirt. Lot of defense should be. A few COLT one is all water around your house you need to make sure you've got a positive rate. All sought your home with a water is trading away from the foundation away from the concrete slab. And if that requires subsurface drainage because. Of the elevation your house slept relation to you order your neighbors sort he neighbor may be drinking his water went viewers. That you could have to consider soaps are frustrated coach or daughters connected the subsurface currents to get the water is off the roof. Where it doesn't hit the ground and bounced back towards your home. The other thing to make sure you do is is make sure you don't hailed. Depending what part of town your house is that David nutri don't have any voids underneath your concrete slab that's holding. Pockets of war have seen that a march. I've actually hold and it doesn't people think it happens often it doesn't happen as often as much as the two other things as described. Is a broken pipe. And then you can hire a plumber to chuck both. The Stewart drainage piping you can put a camera and in it videotape everything. The whole clip of of apartment confirmed easily ebony. Reaches in your sewer system but also when you're hot and Cold War aside make sure that leaking in the water. From your plumbing supplies systems those all things they've licensed insurer plumber can for 54 year. One to rule those out in you've made those improvements. In the only thing left to have visit you have moisture that's coming. Through the ground is underneath your slab. That the paper that was there art that was separate the moisture from coming into the country because each house is probably deteriorated letting moisture from room. And so. You could removed the towel you could use a two part. How confessed he had that. That solves a lot of problems is not assault a 100%. It was solve a very large portion of the cycle so completely. You still gonna have some moisture problems but it's not these extreme uses nail. If I was going back with a different type flooring I would trying funny flooring. Other than you know again to an opinion to describe. Use of flooring that is paper. A horrible meaning paper open lets the water vapor come through it dries up quickly. You know it is very similar the conversation and the beginning of the show in the first followers it's O'Keefe who would give wet. This falls were lit the it would dry in trying to timely manner same thing with a concrete slab does that you know when trying keep drawing. But you can't we've done all the control measures would possibly could to get to try to keep it right that we would put. A flooring that's paper horrible and also you they would add some supplemental. To unification. Said the house to dry it. It as quickly as you possibly can and so those are all things that will go. It move in the right correction. The stock has solve all the 100% and unfortunately. Yeah it is kind of weird conduct that you make in the kitchen. In the bathroom and then. And also probably come opera around that sort of the sewing ends this sort of a reduced. Put them could be years ago and the stuff he used an X 600 belts he chart of the put down one contains. So I'll know this stuff what Laurie mixed to pour. Over what it. Apparently you know it is it worth it yeah I would think it's seamen were reported seeing me and maybe it didn't. In order that that a barrier classic was nearly ripped a song. That's the problem this February and tea. Yeah yeah this is frustrating I agree. Well may not giving you everything I know in reference to how to control or water how to reduce the effects of the water and how to prevent it from coming in or reduced risk of coming and it would it does come in this supplemental. The unification and that paper Pergo flooring is also your next best bet that that really only options you have. Purses you know elephant and a bit. The entire structure off the. Its own little companies use you know it would. I get to write mean. Very aggravated. Being actually kind of books and stood at the slope apartment. In w.s and McCain or what can you don't know this book was called to port proxy war. Not the problem. Probably wasn't. Good to par pox yet the knicks to use two different part eight part B on the job site and yet the duke Ryan you know throughout sports in the quickly yeah. So it probably not gonna turn into. It what it wouldn't write out. Well companies and so David what. What I'm gonna ask you to do is go to our website pulse pulse dot com and you can search. The flooring and you'll see those recommendations there for folks at two ceramic or were. Stones and papers and all things like that. Couldn't it be not put it. How Longo was couple years ago or 23 years ago. Yeah probably welcome the you know I went to a blow. Wait for it and complain about it and he'd give me some big. We would talk about the comment would you got to put it that directly on you know audio. On assault or news it's a train. Now you know what you can try that and I don't think you have a heart like competitive him volunteering to become active right. Sorry. Our dividend and I need to go to commercial break Lou I appreciate you phone call hope this works out for you know it's frustrating certainly hear you voice. And it has come thing SE here or in the north were in the south shores while Apple's thoughts like. It could go to commercial break wouldn't come back if you have a question. We have interest law in the years to 601870. Weakened since attacks at 870 is set to be right back after this. Welcome back to the home probes show here on the big 870 Thabeet of Leo.

Give me a shot let me know and I'll be happy to torture in the right direction if I don't know the answer. Their phone numbers 2601878. Or park city Kansas and Texas 787. Right before the course record spark speaking with David. And now I have a great home have moisture coming through the concrete slab. And we're talk about some of the causes that I typically see. That would contribute to the concrete becoming saturated and the concrete allowing abortion come through. That the this the foundation into the flooring. In in most of the times it's related to ball water. Either on the edge of the slap in the outer perimeter wore underneath or both. You know yes we get lots of rain that was with lots of ground water today in an overtime. When that houses in a thirty file for five years old. The paper that was there. It becomes teary it was more succumbing to the country. And in water is is that different from aren't an issue was to go for me what climate. To each were our climate in its Trier inside vs underneath the foundation is holding water in if you had some sorts of saw patents. Or if you had some previous totaling some plumbing repairs done any Curome. And you know that paper Perry has gotten disturbed. Two or you're holding pockets water in her house. By all means that is enough water more than enough water to successfully this problem moisture come through. Or few health. The great of dirt rent your house is not in a positive grade meaning. Water is called again true home and it's sitting there among the answer your house. Or if you and it did matches before. You know if you have. Irrigation. Sprinkler systems and it's bringing gets the at your house in and you're using it on a regular basis that's also in the Warner. To. Give some extra water torched that concrete let them wash your comb through so. We do have some options. It's it in in typically. It does involve a re direct water away from the house or pumping some sand in your home. And it's you fill the voids or some soaps are for stray terse and gutters. Here at this news are all better options of address single source of moisture. Source control as opposed to removing the storm pro. In putting down and a new type or different flooring and also some eap oxy in the latest and the Detroit's all that from happening. You know it's better to keep the water source than anything else that's Kabila was the first option could suggest. And though this is true too of it's somewhat of a little bit you know difference in our book promotes source control. That is you know this is the Tom a year when I get phone calls relating to bathrooms begin. Steamy and muggy in getting so mole growth for the politically or the if you have marketers to supplied register. In the bathroom is Stuart tripping or trusting courts or mole. A lot of humps are death from sutures charged. With lots and lots of moisture because. You know we were where this hot soak in the tub or hot shower you putting lots of water vapor and that very small confined space. And you're not using Unix Austrians or you don't use an exhausting correctly so you're not addressing moisture at the source so that the best way to do that. He is to. Colonel Dick saucepan. Close the doors office said Manning. That the bathroom from the rest of the house. So if you keep your closet is attached you Beth and clothes closet to word. Close the hole or close the bedroom door and just have that small area of your bathroom. In one area turn your exhaust fan Owen. Step in the top step in the Shaw or whatever you needed to do whatever your pleasure is in reference to what you like that if you're shot or personal or your arm or a person. And then you wouldn't leave that. Bet that exhausts and or on an operating the entire time you've taken a invading. As well as another 1520 minutes after you turn off the show wells. And encouraging them more draft you step out the Pope. Advocates you want to use at small failed to loot the moisture at the source don't let that bush and what a typical progressed your home. Because he can create other problems and a dispatcher house as well. So you know it's very important we have source control and it's also true for your kitchen exhaust hood. If you do lots cooking or if you cooking dish that somersault for a long period of time you want to use your kitchen exhaust and remove the moisture there. As well as perfect one bit what to rest party house. You know at this time you Whittle runner Eric nationalized settled we don't get a lot of unification. From our air conditioned this time a year because we're in a short season. Repeating a little bit cooling a little bit and he will be more in the then don't use nothing for period of time. But we still generating internal moisture by leaping in our house are we could go to EC BS news break it would come right back. Welcome back to the show so glad and honored you were with us to the listening and participating in the show few questions and concerns attacks 87870. Or give us call it 260187. We have some availability for you. One line so whore. On the phone so either way be happy if you call relating to you home repairs. And each efficiency. Comfort. You know we're we're in transition Tom gorgeous day today. But of course she note NetSuite colluded to little more heat local moisture in Jimmy Fund yourself and that is called the Woodside home. Is as much as you would like to be war. You wouldn't get a head start making some of those repairs that the he you know you noticed last summer and in the attic now wait until winter in India and in which came by and holidays anymore listen. You've got to do it well on means give it to him before he gets hot inside your attic it's a good time to do that. You know this is the time year when my air conditioner in my house. Probably doesn't run very much an effect no it doesn't matter much at all. But I have a whole host the humidifier. That does operate on a regular basis this time a year you know we don't need heat in the home we in most times we don't need air conditioned. Apple we are still living in the house obviously Ian were cooking cleaning me being inward exhaling breathing and you know at the doors open and close with our kids' friends coming in and out and you know we get some innovative moisture inside our house so that supplement to deem it afar will ruin remove the moisture. The temperatures quite comfortable with just don't want it to be lucky. You know I I tried to keep our in two were relative humidity in several home. This time here it hangs out about you know the 758%. Relative humidity and with the indoor temperatures at that. In two war Horry each of you know 67%. It's quite comfortable and he works very very well. Right problem to what was school check out the phone lines and speak with Prine he Brian good morning welcome to the show. Good morning to you. Thank you for taking my call. Our problem wore it well. Yeah that is what he's out there now the question common true. It is sealed it came back and did the V. Ounces were. You. Can talk. About. It's. In. The linoleum liberal. He said he may you'd hear it. Needs are to go on sorry. And lately it's not. That. I can't. Answer might. Yes and Anna once. That it now and I came. Would be the that we have problems. And in. Who were urged that it's a question you. Someone wants to be true I can't beach. Us on world that used to change to make. And I use the cancellation. Find out as this white and green. Plumbing and outraged. At the church. And I'm wondering what you. Saw. This day he used to use they are. Now making. Them oh. Just type all that. Is different classifications. And it should concern and and do. So so Brian. Would I like to do that it bathtub trap is. The void in in in the country itself filled with sand like a like a rivers and or pumps and some typical pumps and and then up put a bottom half inch thick cap of liquids are recent or over the salient and that stops the water vapor from coming in. God and and that works well I'm not a fan of foam right there. I like the old fashion that was an old folks those stuff in the Indian this technique steel works of using the liquid tar. Over the top trap and if you ever have a repair you can remove it out of your way you can cut it out and gain access to the piping. Make your payers and they put it back in it and can prevent the water vapor from the grip error. In that space where your plumbing tub drawings connected from coming into you that that's Emery or in the infrastructure area. What would. Mean. It is a game. What it was. Is Stan put up. The track. So I mean this so well is going to be extremely. Raucous. Wait wait I can't get. A trap was where it is. Right so it is. Certain ways cotton's. My movement out. There. So let me say this about foam insulation. Termites. Or not attracted the foam insulation and other than that you think that but it's not accurate statement termites are attracted to the moisture. And to do cellulose wood. And aunts and former salacious and any cellulose to him Danny would portions of so that I attracted the foam unsolicited they're attracted to. So yours. So you know a lot of look at the accused of fact. Even the termite industry I hear some termite experts that say you know what. Foam insulation is is not any different and other installations when it comes to termites and yet some of the votes and so although almost solutions that attracts termites in the Yediot and they love it. They they don't love it it'll eat it's an attractive there's nothing in the term in the moments laces tracks termite. It's the moisture and it would go assault that more shall problem in order to prevent elements. Right. Oh. Moisture the truck that our current pay I'm certainly be room for about unity and direction and you. Yes sir you do the same thank you much and now on the back and work on that project. All right let's go to commercial break welcome back about bowls because Jennifer on the phone system. Who will be right back after this more of the home from two left. Welcome back to go home proven chokes so glad you were listening to us today and and calling to spending the show saint that was go to phone lines and speak with Jennifer Pitt Jennifer good morning. Good morning. I have a question about my data venting system. I went like. Twenty years and there. On. Egyptian. And several years ago. To cabinet. Well let me. Habit like. I'd like that are getting there. And we had to pack that. He's that he did not. Exit that it appears to treat it to grow. Up to them. And right. Yes opening air you can. Hear that apartment. There. Jennifer the only way you can do that because your stove is in the north island in the senate pitches Donald picture wall. It's very similar to with beef up plumbers do. When he does the total in the home and replace sewer piping for water piping is picking up the tunnel into your home to get to remove that doc. That's there officer remove the true roots because the troops still there. And put it in new dark and that pumped sand in that space and close a pack off that's really the only option you have. Now it's too the only option you have to use the downdraft that you have. Is there any way you can put a good from the top from the ceiling to nailed it and not have all let go through all expense. I think would probably cut and it just intimately kitchen. Yeah you know that may be something you would consider his tunneling underneath your home is not a cheap proposition it's expensive. And in the could sometimes contribute to other problems like disturbing the vapor barrier between the concrete and the ground. So you may consider using a really nice decorative exhausted coming from the ceiling above your stove and Ali kitchen island. In. In and do that don't feel like cheaper and easier and less invasive.
