Things To Avoid When Drying Wet Carpet

Published

on

One of the first things you should do after a flood or other water event is dry damp carpets. If you don’t, you can incur expensive damage that needs expert restoration.

You may learn every aspect of drying wet carpets here. You can lessen the amount of water damage your home sustains by heeding our advice!

Tips To Keep In Mind When Drying Wet Carpet 

1: Avoid utilizing a household fan

Even though using a household fan to dry your carpets seems intelligent, doing so is detrimental. The fan’s fast air will merely spread the water around, making removing it more challenging. The fan’s blades may also harm the fibres of the carpet.

2: Avoid using a hair dryer or heat gun

It would help if you also refrained from using a heat gun or hair dryer to dry your carpets. The intense heat, which works similarly to a fan, will distribute the water and endanger the carpet’s fibres.

3: Avoid utilizing chemical cleaners.

Avoid using any strong chemicals while attempting to clean up water damage. It applies to cleaners like vinegar, bleach, and others. The carpet fibres may become more vulnerable to additional water damage due to these chemicals.

4: Avoid utilizing a steam cleaner

Using a carpet dryer and steam cleaner to dry your carpets is a good idea. The carpet may become more susceptible to water damage due to the steam cleaner’s high heat setting.

5: Avoid stepping on the carpet

Lastly, it’s crucial to refrain from stepping on damp carpets. It could harm the carpet fibres and serve to distribute the water. If walking on the mat is necessary, wear new, dry shoes.

6: Contact a Professional Right Away

It’s important to contact a specialist as soon as possible if you have water damage. A specialist will have the necessary equipment and skills to dry your carpets, preventing future damage.

However, here are three great reasons you should consider a carpet dryer.

Three good reasons to buy a carpet dryer

As carpets give your home a layer of coziness and sophistication, they are a terrific flooring alternative. But if you have a rug, you also know how difficult it can be to keep. For instance, cleaning the carpet immediately after spills prevents odours or stains. But there are other issues as well.

Do you ever struggle to get your carpets to dry? You are not alone, though. The same issue affects the majority of people. A carpet dryer is a sensible solution to all carpeting issues. Large fans, known as carpet dryers or carpet blowers, quickly expel a large volume of air, shortening the drying process. 

Here are some justifications for searching for carpet dryers

1: Boosts Safety

You run a high risk of slipping and falling if you cross a damp carpet onto a hard floor. Ensuring the carpets are completely dry after washing them is an excellent way to prevent slip and fall incidents. A carpet blower machine aids in the quickest possible removal of moisture from the carpet, lowering the possibility of slipping.

Rapid carpet drying also lowers the chance of mould growing on your flooring, which could harm your health. As a result, you can protect yourself and your home’s residents from health problems brought on by mould.

2: Prevents Smelly Things

A damp carpet for an extended period is prone to draw germs, mould, and pollutants that emit unpleasant odours. Staying in a house with a lousy scent is annoying and uncomfortable. Fortunately, buying a carpet dryer will help you stop the odours. After cleaning your carpet, use the carpet dryer to remove any leftover dirt.

Drying a damp carpet is one of the most important steps in avoiding water damage. Heeding our advice guarantees that your carpets are thoroughly dried off and prevent more damage. Keeping these pointers in mind, you can dry your wet carpet faster.

Spring Petals and Hairy Crab: Kintsugi Aligns with a Golden Touch

Published

on

Tucked away in a slate-colored corner of otherwise colorful SoHo, Kintsugi stands in contained eloquence as a testament to the exquisite fusion of traditional Japanese cuisine and modern culinary artistry. Named after the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, Kintsugi embraces imperfections, celebrating the beauty of resilience and transformation in post-pandemic NYC.

At Kintsugi, guests are treated to an omakase experience unlike any other, where every dish tells a story of meticulous craftsmanship and innovative flavor pairings. The menu, curated by Executive Chef Victor Chen (formerly of New York Sushi Ko), offers three tiers of premium omakase, each highlighting seasonal ingredients and Chef Victor’s imaginative creations.

The dining experience began with the house signature cocktail, made with sake, yuzu, and violet syrup—a whimsical nod to the restaurant’s otherwise classic Japanese ambiance. The upbeat jazz music playing in the background added a lively contrast to Chef Victor’s quiet focus, creating a dynamic and engaging atmosphere.

The exciting spring menu babied us with glow-in-the-dark Firefly Squid as well as eels so delicate one would think they’re about to enjoy a bowl of glass noodles. A hairy crab peered at us over one course, sheltering a tangy salad made from its tender meat. Such creatures are common fare on the spring tides of the large Japanese coastline, chef informed us. An array of seasonal sea urchin species always brings a knowledgable crowd to Kintsugi, so book early for that summer treat.

While the atmosphere became increasingly lively as the evening unfolded and the guests got to know each other and the staff, the omakase culture at Kintsugi is one of careful curation and attention to detail. Guests can expect to pay a deposit and be patient, as Chef Victor and his team are focused and diligent in providing a truly exceptional dining experience. From bespoke sushi tailored to individual tastes to over 40 pieces of expertly crafted nigiri, every dish at Kintsugi is a work of art.

As you embark on your culinary journey at Kintsugi, be prepared to be transported to a world where every bite tells a story of tradition, innovation, and the beauty of impermanence. The latter of which is precisely what Chef Victor loves about sushi. “All of that work and it all goes into one bite” he says quietly as he gently sears a fat slice of sable fish. “Perhaps it is chewed a few more times, rolled around and savored for that moment and then its forever gone.”

In artful consideration of framing, each course is presented on dinner ware in collaboration with EM Ceramics and Spark Bird Studio who created an exclusive line of handcrafted, gold-fused dinner ware for Kintsugi. Experience for yourself the zen magic of this divine space and discover why, as host Klaus puts it, “everyone needs some Kintsugi after Covid.”

Kintsugi recently launched The Lunch Rush Omakase, a 12- course one- hour experience for $60. It is served on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from12–3 p.m. Also available is an optional seasonal beverage pairing (3) for $35 per person.

Corruption In The Queens Divorce Courts Part 3

Published

on

This is the 3rd part in a series of what I have witnessed while in court with my friend in her divorce case. Here is part 1 and part 2. Part of the reason I am writing this, is I do not believe this is an isolated case and there are those who are afraid to speak out for themselves. The violation of ones rights should be something we all fight for. In my friends case many of her rights were violated and sadly a lot of them by the attorney’s she’s had.

Before I start I went to tell you what happened last night. In re-reading and checking the first article I put up, I realized several links were taken down and I replaced with ones that weren’t. Miraculously they were back up today, so I am adding them here, here and here. Hopefully these links will not be taken down again.

Here is how this all started:

When my friend told me about her divorce case I was stunned. When I came to her house for the first time there was paper work in piles all over her house. She asked for my help and I agreed. In looking at this paper work, I saw so much. I immediately noticed what looked like insurance fraud. There were numerous checks from insurance companies. My friend had not noticed the amount or how many checks or claims were made in a short amount of time. Over a million. It was staggering. In a way it was like a gigantic puzzle.

The next day I went to court with her, because it was just going to be her and her attorney. As I have stated before, no-one should have to go through this alone. Her attorney was Alyssa Eisner, who was one of the rudest human beings I have ever met. She talked down to my friend, was condescending and kept telling her to shut up. The very first thing and last thing she said was “I need more money.” I tried to tell Ms. Eisner what I had discovered and asked did she want me as a witness and she said “No I knew nothing about the law.” I proceeded to tell her “I was a journalist and had read about the law.”

When I got into the courtroom Judge Viscovich asked the other side if I was to be a witness and they stated no. This happened the second time I was in court as well. In both occasions my friend was threatened with being thrown into Rikers and her attorney sat there stone cold silent.

Ms. Eisner told the Judge she was not prepared to go to trial.

In court Ms. Eisner, seemed more on her husbands side than my friend’s. Her attitude and her tactics seemed unrehearsed and rather shabby. Her performance made me want to know more, so I did research.

On lawyer ratings she rates poorly 1.7 out of 5

You can read here what other’s went through and it mirror’s what my friend went through.

A couple of days later I drove with my friend to Ms Eisner’s office, where my friend gave her the money she required.

The next time I was there, Ms Eisner again was impolite, discourteous and uncivil. Again the very first thing and last thing she said was “I need more money,” even though she had been paid a couple of days before. Though this day was to separate assets, my friend was sent home with Ms. Eisner not even objecting. The reason why was the Judge wanted the marital home appraised. The joke of this was this could easily have been done the next day, when they didn’t have court, but the Judge specifically ask for this date.

While at the appraisal, my friend slipped and fell and was not feeling well. During this time Ms. Eisner was texting both my friend and her daughter with her daughter answering what my friend should have been answering but couldn’t, because Ms. Eisner kept insisting that my friends daughter make discussion on her mother’s behalf. Her daughter did not have the power of attorney to do this, so why was Ms. Eisner texting her? When the decision’s had been made and was texted to her daughter her daughter told her “This was one of the worst deals ever made.”

The reason my friend had not been answering the texts was she was ill due to what later was diagnosed as a brain concussion. The fact is my friend could have died.

The next day in court, my friend told the Judge she was not well. He didn’t care. Ms Eisner actually for the first time since I had arrived stood up for her, because it was clear my friend was unwell.

The court went on that day for over two hours and the reason for this was Ms. Eisner now wanted off the case. This happened as my friend was not able to make discussions.

Because of the brain concussion, she was hospitalized, had to see a specialist and still has short memory problems.

Ms. Eisner was my friends lawyer for less than 3 months and made over $75,000. My question is for what?

By the way in the case where Dr. Robby Mahadeo was to be jailed for six months in Rikers Island, the reason for that was, that he objected to paying $88,000 in legal fees to Alyssa Eisner, his wife’s lawyer. The couple had a prenuptial agreement that clearly precluded such payments and yet Judge Viscovich took it upon himself to cancel it. This made it to NBC News.
