    The easiest way to move a track “back” in a mix is to lower its volume. This works because in our everyday lives, sounds get quieter as they recede from us, so we’re accustomed to the effect. But our brains also use other cues to determine distance. For example, human hearing excels at matching a […]

  • Busy Day
    My apologies if you tried to reach Hometracked earlier and saw a 503 error. The site got a little busy – visitors from Digg, Reddit, and the awesome AbsolutePunk – and Dreamhost throttled my bandwidth. (So much for the 10Tb, I guess.)

  • How The Soil in Fort Worth Affects Home Foundation Types
    It has been a general knowledge that it is vital to know the geographical aspects of an area, especially if one plans to purchase or build a house in the area. Indeed, the type of soils, the climate, and the average temperatures affect the way how regional home builders build the house. Especially for home structures, the type of land becomes the most vital consideration, and every home constructor needs to be aware of this factor. Thus, building the right structure depending on the condition of the soil is indeed vital to avoid possible home-related issues.As different ground types affect the foundation designs in certain ways, home builders need to be equipped with such knowledge. Fort Worth, with its solid ground, is one of the examples. There are numerous types of soil in Fort Worth affecting the home construction projects, with limestone formations dominating the area. Although the conditions vary in each region, the similar rock formations make builders in the area heavily depend on certain designs to proceed with the task.Different Foundations for Different GroundSandy loams and clay-rich ground are the typical conditions in Fort Worth. For this reason, concrete foundations are ideal for the condition since the structure tends to balance the water absorption. However, please note that the loams are quite sandy that it sometimes allows subsurface water movement. For this reason, once the foundations are built, regular inspections are what the residents need to check the slab. It is because the water movement often leaves gaps and cracks on the floor, especially the garage floor which is usually generated directly from the slab without adding another concrete layer.Another type in the area is the clay-rich ground that is sometimes very difficult to deal with due to its highly absorptive property. Builders usually address the issue by removing the topsoil to build a concrete slab. Quite similar to the above situation, cracks and gaps are also pretty common, requiring regular checking and renovation.The Importance of Soil TestingAlthough the term is quite popular in the field of agriculture, real estate industry also needs the test to provide the builders with necessary information about the type of the ground. The test helps them identify the exact nature of the land and the characteristics. These two kinds of information are vital in coming up with the best and most suitable home foundation types before building the remaining structures.……

  • Three Reasons Why You Need a Professional Chimney Sweep
    The winter is coming, and you are preparing your home for that season. And among all parts of the house, the chimney is usually the most neglected one. Many house owners think that as long as the fireplace can produce heat, then there is no problem in the system. However, the chimney problem is like a time bomb. You will not notice it until it is too late.Furthermore, many owners often prefer to take matters into their own hands. They do not realize that the deposits and debris in the chimney can hurt them. Besides, if you do not know the proper way to inspect the chimney’s condition, things can get messy, and the inspection will be fruitless because you cannot spot the broken parts.Here are some reasons why you should be better to call a professional sweep than to do a do-it-yourself inspection.You May SuffocateYou need to clean your house’s chimney from the inside. And without proper equipment, you can suffocate yourself. Professional sweeps even wear a protective suit complete with the gas mask to prevent any contacts with the hazardous materials in the chimney.They also bring an air pump to make sure there is oxygen flowing through the structure. Unless you can afford such a procedure, you must omit the idea of maintaining the chimney by yourself.You May Experience Allergic ReactionThe debris inside the chimney is more than oil and condensed toxic chemicals. If you have not used the furnace for a long time, then you may have some animals and insects lurking there. Wasps, bees, birds, and bats are known for their habit of nesting in unused chimneys.The danger with wasps and bees is obvious. You should watch out for their stings. However, people often undermine bats or birds living in their chimneys. The animals may not be harmful to humans as they tend to avoid contacts, but the poop (also called guano) can cause respiratory infection if inhaled.The Structure May CollapseChimney soots are measured in three levels of severity. The first one is the easiest to clean, and you can scrape it quickly with a scraping tool. The second-degree soot sticks to the fireplace’s structure, and they are harder to eliminate than the first one. The third-degree creosote buildups merge with the inner structure completely. You may not remove them without damaging the flue liners and affecting the structural strength of the chimney. You should never attempt to remove the buildups by yourself once they reach level two.…The post Three Reasons Why You Need a…
