Under Water Damage Ogden

There are many effects of water damage Ogden that can potentially happen to a house or structure. Water has the potential to rot wood or rust metal. This can compromise the structural integrity of a house or structure which can then make it unsafe to inhabit. Water inundation can also give rise to the growth of mold. If left unchecked mold can quickly spread. The presence of mold can cause breathing difficulties, allergic reactions and other potential health issues. The removal of mold is difficult and often requires a professional mold removal service to successfully and completely remove from a house.


After a house or structure has incurred water damage resulting from a flood, excessive rain, leaking pipes or from some other source it must be addressed immediately to mitigate the damage. This will often require hiring a professional crew that specializes in this service. The first thing the professional service will do is assess the damage incurred from the water. Based on this assessment the professional service will formulate a plan of action. Often times the first step in this process involves removing any remaining water in the house through the use of a pump or vacuum.

Next  the professional service will remove any damaged dry wall and carpeting. After this has been accomplished, the professional service will dry out the house by using industrial fans, heat lamps, dehumidifiers and air conditioners which act essentially as dehumidifiers. Once the house has been dried out new dry wall, carpeting and wood or metal that had been removed can be replaced. In addition to these repairs if the presence of mold is detected it must be professionally removed to prevent negative health impacts on the people who live in the house and may be sensitive or allergic to mold.

February is Water Damage Ogden Month!

Happy Water Damage Ogden Month to all the loyal readers of the House Cleaning Utah Blog! It goes without saying that the House Cleaning Utah Blog would not be the irrefutable success that it has become without you all. For that, on behalf of myself (Steven Forrester) and the entire editorial board I present you with my unbridled thanks and gratitude. And it is for this reason that we would like to extend to all of you the most heartfelt sentiments of the season. We know that many of you consider this festive time to be the emotional crescendo of the entire year and we here at the House Cleaning Utah Blog are no exception to that rule by any stretch of the imagination.

Celebrate the Glad Tidings of Water Damage Ogden Month!

There has been much ado about the so called war being waged by the forces of political correctness against the true meaning of what this month represents. Now it is the official policy of the House Cleaning Utah Blog to steer far afield of any religious controversy. The contents of another man’s heart are in no way the business of Steven Forrester or the editorial board and as long as we run this blog they never shall be.

Indeed, it seems ridiculous to us that one man should tell another man what to believe. It is ridiculous to expect another man to believe with his whole heart something that he has come to believe in through compulsion. This type of faith (if I may use the word) must be arrived at through one’s personal journey along the road of life. If that destination is arrived at in any other manner it shall be inauthentic and life is too short to live it in-authentically. At least that is the opinion of Steven Forrester and the editorial board.

A Chance to Clean Up America?

The editorial board of the House Cleaning Utah blog would like to take this opportunity to say a few words on the outcome of the 2016 United States Presidential election. First of all, it is well understood that the large population of loyal readers includes people from both sides of the political spectrum be they liberals looking for house cleaning Vancouver or conservatives looking for house cleaning Detroit (for example). That said, it is no secret that the House Cleaning Utah blog has an obvious bias towards the Democrat Party and accordingly was hoping for a Hillary Clinton victory last Tuesday night.

All that being said, the election is now over and we must all learn to live with the consequences. Of course the House Cleaning Utah blog is loyal and patriotic. Because of this we accept the election results and wish the new president elect well. Of course we hope that his presidency is a successful even though we might no entirely agree with his policies or agenda. It is unclear what effect a Trump presidency will have on house cleaning Vancouver if any. It is entirely possible that we can all live through these four or eight years and emerge unscathed on the other side.

It would be untruthful to say that the House Cleaning Utah blog is happy with the results. We clearly are not. However, our identity as Americans supersedes our identity as Democrats and political liberals. For that reason we will offer no obstruction to the Trump administration. We cannot say that we will be enthusiastic supporters (especially at first). One could say that we have adopted a wait and see mentality. In other words we will give Mr. Trump the benefit of the doubt and see how he performs once the mantle of government rests upon his shoulders.


ScentsyOne of the most convincing reasons to join Scentsy is the chance to experience the Cashmere Pear Scentsy Bar. The product description for this alluring product reads, “Slip into sensual white amber, Madagascar vanilla, silky pear and warm red ginger, a blend as smooth and luxurious as fine-spun cashmere.” Anyone who has the chance to experience this product will know with extreme clarity that this product description does not in any way mince words.

The key word in this product description is the very first word, “slip” because this is exactly what the person who has chosen to join Scentsy and experience this product will experience. The feeling of slipping into the sensual Cashmere Pear Scentsy Bar begins with the first vapors to enter the Scentsy joiner’s nose. When this happens he or she will quickly encounter the white amber doors that once opened lead directly into the Madagascar vanilla foyer. From there the Scentsy joiner has a choice. He or she may choose to enter the silky pear drawing room or perhaps make his or her way to the warm red ginger main dining room. The choice is his (or her’s) and no one will judge him (or her) because of the choice he (or she) eventually chooses to make.

At this point the Scentsy joiner will find himself or herself completely lost in the experience. He or she will not know whether his or her brain is an organ of thinking or a blend as smooth and luxurious as fine-spun cashmere. Perhaps it can be both. This is actually a question both the Scentsy team of scientists and philosophers are working on as we speak. Of you and I both know that we are not speaking. I am writing and you are reading subsequent to the time in which I write.

Of Zeros and Ones

Much like the zeros and ones that make up the language that computers understand a house too can exist in one of two states. Zero and one are the same as on and off. Houses can exist in the state of messy or clean. If the house is in the state of clean probably no further action needs to be taken except that at some point in the future the action taker should recheck to make sure that this state of being is still true. If the house is messy then steps need to be taken to return the house to its natural state of cleanliness.

The action taker can then either clean the house themselves of hire a house cleaning Vancouver to clean it for them. This is the choice the action taker must make. It is a choice between zero and one. It is the choice between on and off. But choose he or she must for the house cannot exist in its messy state forever. It must be returned to its state of cleanliness because to not respect this balance of universal forces would be to make a very grave error indeed. This error would corrupt the main frame and crash system.

But the action taker will not make that choice because he or she cannot. It quite simply is not an acceptable option. No, the action taker must take action (which is his or her nature) and hire a house cleaning Vancouver to clean the house. It does not matter whether clean is one and messy is zero or whether clean is zero and messy is one. Whichever value is clean is the value which the house must return and once it has returned to that state the cycle will be complete. But because the cycle is a cycle it will then have to repeat itself. Such is its nature.

Ideas Flow Like Water

commercial-cleaning-brisbaneThrough the practice of meditation the random parade of thoughts, memories and images begins to slow down. Moreover meditation allows the practitioner to maintain an awareness of the machinations of the mind while at the same time not become identified with these machinations. By “identify” I refer to the process whereby a person thinks a thought and becomes fully absorbed in that thought such that they loose awareness of the actual reality in which they currently exist. In a sense the thoughts are like a flow of water. Normally people plunge right into the water and become fully immersed therein with no real awareness of the water damage Utah being done to them. However, through the regular practice of meditation one begins to cultivate the ability to maintain a separation from this water such that their focus on reality remains intact.

One might easily and on the surface justifiably ask what is the purpose of meditation. In other words, why would someone want to cultivate this ability? Put another way, what sort of water damage Utah is inflicted upon a person who chooses not to meditate and allows him or herself to become identified with the rushing onslaught of ideas? The damage is not necessarily damage per se. It might be more useful to think of it as a missed opportunity for growth. You see, meditation is nothing more than trying to see reality for what it is independent of all the layers of thoughts, judgment and commentary the mind attempts to place upon it. In a sense the practitioner of meditation is strengthening his or her ability to remain awake and conscious.

This is how it begins. Most people never make it past this point of development. However, those who are able to maintain a disciplined practice over a long period of time just may experience something a little more profound.

The Line Between Clean and Messy

flooringWhere does one draw the line between messiness and cleanliness? If a room is immaculately clean except for a single soiled sock lying on the floor, is that room messy or clean? Clearly, there exist gradations between perfectly clean and perfectly messy. It might be said that a house exists in a state of cleanliness when its occupant has the sense that the house is clean. In other words there is a certain gnosis of cleanliness that a person exists once a house has been cleaned to a certain extent. This is the case regardless of whether the house was cleaned by its owner or whether the house was cleaned by a house cleaning Vancouver.

Of course this perception of cleanliness will differ from person to person. In other words the perception of cleanliness is a subjective experience. Because this is the case perhaps it will not suffice to talk about cleanliness in objective terms. And yet there is a general consensus as to what is and what is not a clean house. Obviously once a house cleaning Vancouver has cleaned a house and that the cleaning service performed an adequate job most people would agree that the house is in fact clean. Accordingly, it is unclear as to whether cleanliness and messiness are merely subjective states.

We may never get to the bottom of this most vexing question. Certainly, this outcome will probably not be achieved before the word count in this article reaches three hundred. But perhaps, just maybe we can all take comfort in the fact that we as individuals know what is clean and what is messy for our own unique frame of reference. Moreover, our frame of reference seems to accord with most people’s perceptions of reality. True, there are exceptions but for the most part this seems to be the present state of reality.

How to Dust Like a Professional

slide_homeMost home owners experience an adversity to dusting but at the same time also possess some vague sense that dusting is an activity that a responsible home owner should perform on a periodic basis. One reason for this feeling of adversity towards dusting might be related to ignorance regarding how dusting should be properly performed. Accordingly, such people would do well to listen to the advice of professional house cleaners.

For example, a professional maid service Salt Lake City would typically advise home owners to avoid the use wood polishing sprays because they often leave an unwanted residue on top of the surfaces upon which it has been applied.  By contrast, employing a dry microfiber cloth can be a much more effective dusting technique over the long term because it does not leave behind a residue.  In the event that a home owner finds a residue as the result of using a wood polishing spray, said residue can be effectively removed by wiping the surface with a damp cloth and followed by wiping with a microfiber to dry it.

A professional cleaning service Salt Lake City will also be able to dust in those normally inaccessible areas.  Often a paintbrush or other similar implement can effectively remove dust from the various nooks and crannies found in decorative accents, lampshades, and corners.  Q-Tips can then be employed to extract any remaining dust.

It is good practice to dust door frames, ceiling fans, light fixtures, and tall shelves before other furniture located on lower levels. Obviously this will prevent the necessity to remove the same dust twice.

Moreover, any accumulation of dust along the baseboards and inside cabinets can be effectively extricated through the use of a vacuum cleaner. Using this tool will prevent dust from floating away to some other unfortunate area of the room.

Of [P]erfection and [p]erfection

commercial-cleaning-brisbaneI was recently accused of “not believe in (P)erfection” and that I “ONLY BELIEVE in (p)erfection.” I have asked this person several times to define what he means by these two terms but he refuses. The best I can tell is that he believes “Perfection” to mean God. I have told him several times that I do in fact believe in God. But for some reason this is not good enough for him. If I do not believe in “Perfection” as he has accused me I am apparently guilty of the crime he calls “Radical Autonomy” which is another term he has refused to define. As he went on to say, “this signifies … a radically autonomous individual. An individual attempting to falsify reality with his sheer will.” Again I have a hard time understanding what he means because I am in no way trying to falsify reality with my will. I just do not understand what he happens to be talking about.


I do believe in the concept of perfection meaning “without flaw.” There are not many things in this world that fit that description. Of course this depends upon how one defines “flaw”. But as a Roman Catholic I believe God is perfect. I suspect this is different than what my accuser is talking about but for some reason he refuses to define his terms. For example, my apartment is definitely not perfect. That is why I have hired a cleaning service Vancouver to clean it up. I must accept the fact that even with a maid service Vancouver cleaning up my apartment it will probably never achieve a perfected state and maybe this is what my accuser is getting at. That by saying I do not believe in “Perfection” he is saying that I do not believe it is possible for my apartment to ever be perfect. But if this is what he means I do not understand why he does not just come out and say that directly.

This Most Important of Topics

slide2finalWe have come to the point where we can all agree that the house in which a man lives out his days is in actual fact an external symbolic representation of that man’s inner self. I refuse to and will not lower myself to the level where I need to distinguish between a man’s heart and mind and soul. In truth any such distinction is by necessity an artificial one and accordingly a false description of the actual reality. Because we are all in agreement as to this point there is no further requirement to elaborate upon the point except to say that when a man makes the choice to hire a house cleaning Vancouver service what he is also doing is making the choice to hire a mind (or soul or heart) cleaning Vancouver service.


The consequences of this action are in fact legion despite the manner in which this drama unfolds from a visual perspective. Clearly if one is to observe the maid service Vancouver enter the man’s house and begin their work it will appear to be exactly that. The observer (if not open to the deeper interpretations of existence) will merely see the maid go from room to room dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, picking up clothes, taking out the garbage, wiping down surfaces, cleaning the smudges and streaks from the windows and otherwise setting the house to order. If, however, the observer is open to the deeper interpretations of existence what he will actually see is that the man (the one who own the house) will undergo an internal cleansing.


Obviously the exact nature of this “internal cleansing” is far beyond the scope of a three hundred to five hundred word blog post. Perhaps some day I will have the time and resources to write the comprehensive tome I envision on this subject which will clearly spell out the various nuances, the understanding of which are required to fully grasp the bigger picture of this most important of topics.
