High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - February 10, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Curing squeaky floors the number of things that can cause a floor to squeak would make a list stretching from Here to the Bottom of this Page. The causes therefore will be passed Over to allow space for the cures. And most of those cures Are possible simply with the proper use of the proper nails. Since the underside of the floor cannot be reached except in the Case of a floor Over an unfinished basemen the attack must be made from above. Occasionally a squeak can be pinpointed just by standing on a particular Board and jumping up and Down on it a Little. Most of the time however the squeaking noise is a bit elusive. You think it s coming from one spot then you decide no it s coming from another. A sure Way to Trace the exact area of a squeak is to have someone walk Back and Forth Over every part of the floor perhaps two or three times. Get Down on All fours and every time you hear a noise Mark it with a piece of Chalk i should have told you that you d better forget about the whole thing if you can t lift the Rug and work directly on the surface of the Wood. Now at each chalked Point drive two nails into the Wood at an Angle so that the Points nearly come together. If driven properly and if you could see through the Wood you would see that the two nails roughly form a be sure to use threaded or grooved finishing nails. If the floor is made of softwood Pine for instance first Drill a Pilot Hole smaller than the thickness of the Nail then Hammer the Nail into that opening remember to Drill each of those holes at the suggested Angle. Replace old weather stripping Check talking on outside of House draw draperies at night open Dupin amp Dav when fireplace is n0t in use Oose Damps common sense can save heat by or. Fix with the nation facing an Energy crisis conserving fuel has become a matter of National necessity. But there is no need for drastic measures. Common sense procedures which a few efficient Economy minded homeowners have been practising for years already Are All that is needed. Even without a fuel shortage the increasing costs of utilities make these practices important for economic reasons. You have to conserve to make up for the increase in costs. While Many people Are getting around to making sure the lights Are turned off in empty rooms How about doing the same for the heat As Well if there Are rooms unused for much of the Day close the registers and close the doors. If you have a fireplace use it when you can when it is not in use close the Damper or Block the fireplace to keep warm air from going up the Chimney humidity too Little or too much people have two types of complaints about humidity. There s either too much of it or too Little of it. Most areas usually get too much of it in the summer. Since we re not too far from the season of the year when Many of us get too Little of it let s discuss that aspect How do we know when there s too Little of it by having a Humidistat in the Home is one Way. But Only a Small percentage of houses have them. There Are other ways to Tell when there s not enough moisture in the House. One is when you walk across a Rug and touch a Doorknob or Metal handle or something similar and Are startled by the Static electricity you feel. Another is when you get a dry skin condition known As a Winter itch Quot or you May feel Cool even though the temperature is Between 75 and 80 degrees. Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared with the amount of moisture which air at that temperature could hold. Thus if the air has half As much moisture As it could hold at a certain temperature the relative humidity is 50 per cent. Change the temperature and you also change the relative humidity since warm air can hold More moisture than cold air. Too Little humidity is a troublemaker. As the relative humidity of air is lowered it begins to steal moisture from everything it touches a the furniture parts of the building even your body. Wood shrinks paint cracks floors separate and crack paintings Check and veneers Peel to name just a few of the results of excessive dryness. People Are More susceptible to respiratory infections when Low humidity dries the mucous membranes lining the nasal passages. There Are differing opinions about precise necessary humidity Levels but it is generally believed that when the inside temperatures is at 70, the relative humidity should be 50 per cent for human Comfort. When it is at 71, the humidity should be 40 per cent at 72, it should be 30 per cent. How do we Correct conditions of too Low humidity by adding moisture to the air. Grandma did it to a degree by placing pans of water on the radiators when the heat was on. Today it is Felt that we should add one gallon of water per room per Day under most conditions. And the Best Way this can be done is with a Humidifier. If you decide to get one take along a hateful of facts with you so that your dealer can help you decide the Type and size to use. The facts should include the kind of House the number of rooms the layout whether there Are storm windows the Type of heating the number of persons living in the House Etc. The better humidifiers have automatic Humidistat to control the output of water. They turn themselves off when sufficient moisture has been released to bring the relative humidity to an acceptable level. Lock windows that Are closed to Seal them better. Renew weatherstripping wherever it is worn. Use storm doors and keep them tightly latched. Close draperies at night but keep them open during the Day when the Sun is warm. Turn your thermostat Down at night but not More than about six degrees. Any greater amount will require so much extra fuel to get the temperature Back where you want it that savings Are cancelled out a keep Furnace filters clean or replaced. A dirty filter slows Down the movement of air. Regularly vacuum heat registers in All rooms for the same reason. Install or have installed a Humidifier. With adequate moisture in the air you will be comfortable at a lower temperature. Seek out drafts and install weatherstripping where necessary. Pick a pleasant Day to Check caulking on the outside of your House a around door and window frames where siding meets foundation inside Corners where Walls meet. You can Cut Down your electric Bill considerably by keeping just a few things in mind fluorescent lights use less electricity than Tungsten bulbs. A 40-Watt fluorescent lamp produces As much or More Light than a too Watt Tungsten bulb a Large Light bulb provides More Light than several Small bulbs of equivalent wattage. Prevention of rust important metals which contain Iron Are subject to rust. Commercially made Metal products sold to the general Public Are coated with some kind of rust inhibiting material but when even a tiny portion of this coating wears off or is knocked off rust takes Over. It is because rust spreads that it is necessary to take immediate action to remove or control it. A piece of outdoor Metal furniture for instance May have developed a Bare spot no larger than a dime. Ignore it and it will become Rusty. Continue to ignore it and it will spread even if the remainder of the object is completely painted. That s because rust moves underneath the paint until it gets such a secure hold that it dislodge the other coating. To prevent rust therefore it is essential that Metal be covered with some substance that prevents air and moisture from attacking it. These coatings can be paint oils primers waxes silicone greases varnishes lacquers and at least a dozen other products. Once any part of that coating is no longer there it should be replaced at once. And that does no to mean the next Day since even a few hours can permit rust to take hold especially outdoors in Damp weather. Once rust has made an appearance it should be removed quickly. This can be done with steel Wool Emery cloth or any Brasic used. Alone or in conjunction with one of the Many rust removing liquids and jellies on the Market. Since these latter products Are chemicals it is important that they be used exactly according to instructions on the containers. Where possible it is Best to get Down to the Bare Metal before repainting or re coating realty transfers High Point Enterprise sunday february to 1174 ii Jamestown township Katie j.
