The Properties of Water

trinity-brahma-vishnu-shiva-cj14_lWater has many properties. Tonight (it is night when I write this anyway) I would like to discuss water’s twin abilities to both create life and to cause water damage Utah. In this way water is very much like the Hindu deities of Brahma and Shiva combined into one very wet and thirst quenching beverage. Where ever scientists find life they also find water. This is the life creating power that belongs uniquely to water. By contrast, when it rains for forty days and forty nights, the creeks will rise and cause all matter of damage. This is the damaging power that belongs uniquely to water.

If one were to talk to a biologist or a chemist about water’s life creating properties they (that is the scientists) would probably reference the fact that the water molecule (specifically the oxygen atom) has many valences. Valences are essentially windows or an atom’s ability to bond with other atoms. This atomic structure is what allows for the creation of the complex biological structures that are necessary for the creation of complex forms of life.

If one were to talk to a person who remediates mold about the destructive power of water he or she would likely be able to feed you a mouthful about the different types of water damage Utah that can manifest. For example, water can rot wood and rust metal. Incidentally, it is the availability of the valences in water that allows for this type of corruption as well. The fact that the water molecule can bond with other molecules means that it can change its chemical structure. Accordingly rust is “oxidized” metal. That is, the oxygen atom which is part of the water molecule (H2O) bonded with the iron atom (for example) and created a molecule of iron oxide which is rust.


Benjamin Franklin and Michael Faraday

Paint Like A ProOne of the founding fathers of the United States of America by the name of Benjamin Franklin performed many experiments designed to study the nature and behavior of electricity. I suspect at the time he performed these experiments he did not have any expectation as to the extent that electricity would be employed in modern society. Nor would he have any expectation as to the extent our modern society would have become reliant on electricity to perform our daily tasks. Electricity lights our homes, heats our homes, powers our appliances, powers our computers and phones and any number of other objects and tools we use every hour of every day.

With all this reliance on electronics to get through the day it is extremely important that there also be a large population of technicians to service these gadgets and appliances. Even in Davis county a person can find an electrician Davis County to service their needs. For if this population of technicians did not exist when the gadgets eventually broke down (and it is all but a guarantee that they will) they would instantly be transformed from a useful tool to an inanimate hunk of junk.

It is well known that the inventor and scientist by the name of Michael Faraday made many discoveries that went on to form the very foundation of the technology which gave rise to the electric motor. As mentioned earlier, these electric motors and other gadgets would quickly become useless hunks of metal if they broke down and there was no electrician Davis County to fix them. For that reason electricity is a rather mixed blessing. Without electricity we would not have all the modern gadgets that we as a modern society has grown accustomed to however, we have also become reliant on these gadgets and if they were suddenly taken away we would find ourselves in dire straits.


Expectations of Said House Cleaning Service

cleaning caddyOn any given day of the week a house cleaning Vancouver service pays a visit to a customer who has hired them for the express purpose of cleaning his or her house. Said customer will undoubtedly have certain set of expectations that said house cleaning Vancouver should be endowed with in order for the customer to achieve a satisfactory experience with the house cleaning service. Said expectations might consist of mopping the wood floors and vacuuming the carpets. Said expectations might also consist of dusting and wiping down all surfaces with appropriate cleaning implements. Said expectations might further consist of washing clothes and dishes and picking up items strewn about the floor.

In addition to the actual cleaning of the customer’s home, said customer might also have other expectations of said house cleaning Vancouver service. One expectation the customer might have is that the house cleaning service is honest and respects the customer’s privacy and personal possessions. The customer will not want any private information the cleaning service might learn exposed to third parties. The customer will also not want his or her personal possessions treated roughly especially those possessions that are easily breakable or otherwise fragile in construction.

The customer will also want the employees of the house cleaning service to possess certain personality attributes. These attributes might include but are not limited to a cheerful and positive attitude, a strong and industrious work ethic as well as a clean and professional appearance.

The aforementioned attributes and qualities represent the bare minimum that a customer will expect from his or her house cleaning service. Certainly if a house cleaning service wishes to exceed these expectations and go above and beyond what the customer anticipates this is recommended. Under no circumstances should the house cleaning service underperform and not meet the bar of expectation described within this piece.

A Meaningless Term

Paint Like A ProMy accuser pontificated, “You understand that we inhabit a nation that claims to be 70-80% Christian and that God is dead. Can you successfully reconcile this disjointed reality?” I do not know that it is the same 70-80% of people that make both claims but I assume from his statement that he believes this to be the case. Speaking from my own experience, I certainly do not make both claims simultaneously.

He went on to say, “I’ve reconciled this maddening reality within the framework of ‘radical autonomy’ and the desire thereof. God is dead BECAUSE the masses REJECT objective Supremacy.” Again I run into the logical quagmire that I do not nor does anyone I know reject “Objective Supremacy” because neither I nor anyone I know (to my knowledge) knows what my accuser means by the use of this term. I certainly do not know what he means. The electrician Davis County that came to my house to rewire my man cave does not know what he means either. I asked him.


What I cannot reconcile is why he refuses to define this term. When I ask him what Objective Supremacy means he tells me that it means God. When I ask him why he does not just use the term God he accuses me of not believing in Objective Supremacy. This does not make sense to me. Nor does it make sense to the electrician Davis County that came to my house to rewire my man cave. I know this is true because I asked him. In other words, this is a verifiable fact. The definition of Objective Supremacy is not verifiable. It could be verifiable if my accuser chose to divulge the definition but he will not and the fact that he will not suggests to me that it is in reality a meaningless term.

From Rain to River to Flood

shoes-ath-001Water falls from the sky in the form of rain. The rain then accumulates on the land. The water on land will not stay put generally unless it is sitting in a natural depression. Otherwise the water will follow the natural contours of the land following the path of least resistance until it finds the lowest point it can. Typically the water will find its way to streams and brooks which in turn lead to rivers which then lead to larger rivers which then eventually lead to the ocean.


Along the course of the water people often build house and other structures. This is because people like to live near water for the reason that under normal situations, living next to water increases their over all quality of life. The obvious flip side to this sort of living arrangement is that that any house or structure can be subject to water damage Utah in the event of substantial rain which leads to a situation where a flood can occur.


Once a house is inflicted with water damage Utah it is important for its home owner to take action immediately in order to mitigate the damage the water will inevitably cause. The first step is always to get the water out of the house and then to dry out the structure as thoroughly as possible. Sometimes this will require the water to be physically pumped out of the house or structure. Once the water has been removed from the house it will need to be inspected for structural damage. Any wood that has warped or rotted must be removed and replaced. Any metal that has rusted or has become otherwise corroded such that it is no longer structurally sound should likewise be removed and replaced. Any surface that has been covered by mold must be cleaned of mold or replaced if the mold cannot be removed.
