"24 7 at the inside outside guys dot com. We're also taking your phone calls today at 888654 guys, which equals 8886544897. Let's talkto Valerie in Oxford. Good morning, Valerie around with the inside outside, guys. Good morning, Ken. Morning shook high had a question about a problem We've been having with some moisture and a musty smell. We live on a lake and we have walkout Ranch. The not the lake side of the ranch, but the side that is underground in the lower level. Eyes getting was getting water coming in there. And I'm sorry, but I have a speaker on almost shut that off disturbing me Start off anyway, so on the mean side of the house that is buried. Water was coming off the blue. And, uh, I think speaking into the lower level, so we kind of diverted the water there and, uh, this about two years ago, and so we know what longer we're getting water in the lower level of lower level is finished off. And, uh, They're still a musty smell down there and and it's not all the time. It's just sometimes it's like musty, moldy smell. And we're just not sure how to address it. Um, there at the time that this water was getting in there, you could actually feel the carpeting along that wall and was actually wet. With moisture. But yet the drywall there wasn't wasn't wedding the paint on it wasn't peeling off or anything like that. On BU. No way. Pull the back some carpeting, everything, and the concrete below was was always so we're thinking that, you know, maybe there was some kind of a crack or something in the foundation that the moisture was getting in through and after having diverted that it pretty much took care of the of the problem. As far as the water getting in, But now we still have that kind of must be order down there from time to time, Not not all the time, and we're just not sure how to get started on addressing that. Well, a couple things active moisture isn't necessarily the only issue. Humidity is and remember. You got concrete there and concrete has an affinity for moisture. Concrete will take moisture from any damper wet spot and transfer it to a spot that has less humidity. So it's a hard sponge. It issue. Yeah, that's a great book that write that down like that. So you mentioned having had carpet down there, Valerie back when you originally had the problem, So is it safe to assume you never put a sealer on the walls or the floor? That's that's correct. Yeah. S so that would be one of our first suggestions. If you had the ability to do that, you might be surprised that it's fairly easy to get someone in there to pull that carpet up and then lay back down. You know, week later Um It's not as big a deal is people go ahead. The problem was more coming from the walls like It was it was literally. I mean, you could. It was like, spongy there with that much water had gotten in. And in this 11 side, one era, maybe a 5 ft area off the lower level the rest of the area. We didn't notice the waters, but But you're saying just Uh, moisture wicking up through the concrete in general causes the problem. Well, it's likely to Yeah, we call it in the industry. If you want to sound really smart, you call it capital Arat E. Can you create will literally, you know, do what we just described with the moisture it'll wicket capital a reaction will bring it up. What are you doing out on that wall with overhang and gutter and downspout is to make sure that No surface water can get close to that. How did you fix it? You said you fix it from the outside. How did you do that? Yeah, That's exactly right. The I'm on the front side of the house. There was Ah peak that we had that just took out maybe about a foot from from the house. And it wasn't enough where we if we if we address it would have had to put a gutter in and then a downspout on that 1 ft Peak like so we never did put a gutter in there. Um, We just kind of let the water just drip off that one area. You know of the people over some windows and S s. So what I did, then, um it was a landscaped area, So I put a like a little trough there where the water was running, and so I diverted it out towards Away from the house, you know, towards towards our driveway and everything, and that seemed to take care of the problem. I also put some just some plastic down along. The outside wall. So that Anything that miss that trust would kind of be diverted down and kind of sloping away from the house, too, So I don't think we're getting that kind of moisture in now. Like like we did prior to doing that. No, You said that wallet. I'm sorry. You said you're not getting that Walter. Well, uh, literally any water coming in? I mean, there may be like wicking like you, like you talked about were not getting actual water coming in and that and that whole Wallace is insulated. Um, you know, between the the poured concrete and the drywall. So you know, I'm kind of wondering now is is that installation had it at one time, you know, absorbed all this. This water that was coming in. Is there a crack in the foundation and we just didn't know how to begin to address it. Here's Here's what we would suggest. I mean, you have a walk out on the lake side. So it Z highly doubtful that this was a groundwater problem, right? The water scattered. We're coming from above. Yeah, So it's a reasonable assumption. So we would we would suggest a couple things by some cheap humanist stats. I mean, literally. You could buy $10 a little, you know, sit on your desk, type humanist stats and place him around there and track the humidity down there, literally a floor level at the base of that wall. And then maybe 8 ft. Up. Um Try to dehumidifier. I run your furnace motor more continually to push air through that basement and distributed out through the house. But The source of the water still has to be what can suggested. Yeah, And here's my concern. Valerie is very hard. And don't take this the wrong way that if you're gonna act of water in your basement For a homeowner to eliminate 100% of it. So you may have eliminated 90% of it or 95% of it. But that 5% coming in is still enough to do damage. What do you think it'll inferential because Does not have a scandal. Have it scared out if there's any wet back there, because ah lot of times in those basements. The Rod holds leak and they don't have to leak a lot on do you can't tell because the finished basement And it fits just like a little bit. That's enough to make it moldy down there. So if we get someone like infrared person to come in and shoot those walls They could tell you where that moisture hiccup employees coming in. Yeah, if there is a small act of water, and then again, I'd go back outside. Would make sure that again. Any rain water any snow is being diverted. 10 12 ft Well away from that house. So better. We're gonna go to break We come back. We're gonna give out over the air, a couple of members that you can call for infrared or anybody else out there that have been this issue. In the meantime, I get so many questions asked me. How does solar work? How does it work? Well, it worked as They.

"The latest on how Copan 19 is impacting business in the economy, then stay in touch with marketplace Minute Ah podcast and Smart Speaker briefing updated three times daily. I'm nervous, awful with the marketplace minute, the nation's gross domestic product contracted by an annualized rate of nearly 40 profits doubled to more than a counselor to thirds of the US economy and commerce. Just ask you're smart speaker to play the marketplace minute. You can also listen on apple or wherever you get your podcasts. And we are back 1 807 37247 forgotten email from Tom. And he says, What do you think about composite decking? I need to replace my 26 year old redwood deck. Here in Reno, Nevada. Now Reno, Nevada in the summertime gets up into the hundreds, and in the winter time it snows so all weather conditions apply. In that area. And so Tom wanted to know how we felt about composite decking. So here's what I wrote back to him. Thanks for your question. Hope you're doing well. In this pandemic environment we feel that compost decking. Isas good as any other choice, And the truth is, that's how we feel. I think that there are certain segment of folks Who want to use composite decking because they feel it's going to be better than wood. I said. However, if you're going to be walking on this decking with your bare feet You should be very, very careful because plastic gets really hot. So my advice to Tom, who lives in one of the hottest states in the union. He is. Are you going to be walking on this deck? Barefoot auras anyone? Because if you're going to use composite or any kind of synthetic decking It absorbs and holds the heat like crazy. And if you're walking on wood You're walking on a surface that reflects the heat and doesn't get as hot as the plastic. So I told him. I said if I were you Where you live. You might want to look at a wood called E Pay, which we feel is a fantastic decking material that really lasts a long time and ah, if Red wood decking lasted 26 years. For Tom, then pay would last 46 years. It really is a good, hard, solid, dense, long lasting weatherproof wood, and it's beautiful and it is gorgeous. And so what's your tipple modeling? Babe? My tip is, you know there's a lot of people using humidifiers right now. One of the things you should be doing always is using. Distilled water, because if you're using regular tap water you can actually cause a calcium buildup on your furnace filter really, and the furnace filter will look clean because the calcium is white. But It will look clean when it's actually all clogged up. So distilled water up using tap water. You guys got another tip for me or Ah, you know, I do. We are experiencing really, really hot weather. If you've got a piece of furniture sitting in front of and blocking your cold air return you are causing your h B s. Is this um, really work? Hard work, too. I have to tell you about the it's called Actually, the what Everybody calls. It is a cold air return, but whatever what it actually is. Is a return Air grill right because the temperature of what it returns to the furnace changes with the season. Sometimes it's cold air, and sometimes it's warm here, right? So the return air Port. Is sized to match. All of the inlets together. And if even part of it is obstructed. Then the air won't flow properly and your furnace motor will really, really have to work hard. And not to mention your furniture will get filthy.

T. E. hired to be and for a year or two years to do the same thing I was a spokesperson for them in regards to the energy plans they have for consumers now gold back forty years I am the guy who sat down with bold consumers energy and D. T. and worked out that plan for them now it's much different than what it was back then now I'm playing eagle game here but I was very involved and that's why I ended up I was doing the applied doctor show and all that stuff but that's why I ended up working for them now to this day I still believe and I know there are people who say well I'm I yeah look at all the cost all this much money and so forth look at you have a furnace motor change and it's a six hundred dollar bill easy in your furnace things can be very expensive so the money you involved in these plans which is not all that much when you he gets start opening a coffee can and just pouring money in there every month every week or every day but their plan takes care of you with qualified people I might add they're all screen they watch every service call let's done they make sure the service industry takes care of you and an ethical fashion well I am still a big believer in those plans through our utilities and I feel we're very fortunate in Michigan that have that because it's not spread across the country great so I just thought I'd pass that on I know there are some people will complain about it that that's normal okay but it we have it and we're fortunate to have it and in my way of thinking it's a big money saving thing especially for the elderly who don't are not capable of doing changing the blower motor on the furs and doing some of those states but those people do a terrific job well I'm one of the elderly Joe and I sure appreciate your opinion on this thank you on the thanks for thank you for allowing me to both stiff it want to call it that okay very nice of you thank you sure take care Mary Ann joins us this morning from Auburn hills good morning Mary good morning it's very nice to get on I tried to get on yesterday you did have someone on anyway I have I have a Westinghouse freezer that I've had since nineteen fifty two who and I'm sitting next to it and it and it does make a lot of nice it just went off just as we came on so I can't I can't tell you what it sounds like but it makes a lot of nice heaven defrosted it in a long time what should I do about it to keep it I it's still going after all the six sixty eight years I got a forty two so cool refrigerator in my basement and a fifty two G. at the cottage our work like a champ and the amount of the energy well let's put it this way if you had a new freezer at a cost you fifteen dollars a month operator on the let's say the average that one you have is probably cost you need three dollars a month which lasts I willingly so much the last it's on first of all the metal is much thicker there's more insulation in there it weighs a ton compared to the new products today but it's made with old fashioned American quality you're fortunate enough to have that now I'll ask you about the noise okay does it make a rumble sound are a banging sound when it shuts off the boo boo boo boo no it's a more of a rumble I I that that that that kind of yeah yeah okay you see the compressor in the back underneath it's mounted on these rubber mulch just like a car motor is mounted in an engine is mounted in the frame of the cards got a rubber mounts to cushion the Noyce those rubber mounts lose their contents consistency this self can they they replace or what well you sure they can be returned must they must they be I don't you know when I used to do what I always had a chunk of car tire in my little tool box I just take that and I Graham and underneath the compressor and I don't know if I can I mean I I I will be able to reach it is used in a corner you sent somebody to help you but okay just one way I know of to get rid of the excessive noise ana refrigerator product well okay I don't really care about that I was just telling you about the noise I don't really care about it it's down the basement in a corner and it doesn't matter I just wanted to explain it to you that's very nice of you to call me with that question or comment is or anything that that I should be doing else what about the frosting how I haven't done that in a long time well a long time is what a couple years yeah IRA that's too long this frost is too thick yes said hugging shelves okay yes and so now you're not getting the cold to the food because the frost is too thick and that makes it work harder at that age the compressor hotter and that makes it louder all leading to that does defrost that they open the door put a fan in sub somebody just send me a nice email and I said look at even the frosted you can put a bucket of hot boiling water on the shelf it take a hair dryer this sudden those ladies and why did you just put a fan on a chair in front of it and let air circulate in there the important thing is when you're to frosting of treated like that you should wait until it's completely dry inside take a tall white but completely dry then take a fan hair dryer and make sure it's completely dry before you plug it back in meanwhile you take the food out you put it in a box but a blanket over the box now with the cold temperature it is here you won't have any problems okay so no big worry on that none okay and I will have many hours total is this thing of all take do you think take the what to do the whole thing in our.

"To Valerie in Oxford good morning Valerie around with the inside outside guys log morning can warning shock hi I had a question about a problem we've been having with some moisture and a musty smell we live on on a lake and we have walk out ranch the the lakeside of the ranch with the side that is underground in the lower level is getting what ones getting water coming in there and I'm sorry I I have a speaker on a shot that are disturbing me okay start up what anyway so on the on the other side of the house that is very water was coming awful hello I think fifty nine for the lower level so we the water there and this about two years ago and so we don't longer we're getting water in the lower level lower level is finished off and there's still a musty smell down there and and that's not all the time it's just sometimes it's like musty moldy smell and we're just not sure how to address this there at the time that this this water was getting in there you could actually feel the carpeting along that wall and was actually wept with moisture but yet the drywall there wasn't wasn't let him go from the paint on it wasn't killing off or anything like that and we you know we we pull back some carpeting everything in the concrete below was was always the we're thinking that you know maybe there were some kind of a crack or something on the foundation that though the moisture was getting them through and after he had been diverted that it pretty much took care of the of the problem as far as the water getting in but now we still have that that kind of must be order down there from time to time not not all the time and we're just not sure how to get started on on addressing that well a couple things active moisture isn't necessarily the only issue humidity yes and remember you got concrete and concrete has an affinity for moisture cadre will take more secure from any damper a wet spot and transfer it to a spot that has less humidity so it's a hard sponge it is yeah that's a great point that write that down I like that so you mentioned having had carpet down there Valerie back when you originally had the problem so is it safe to assume you never put a sealer on the walls or the floor are there that's correct yeah yes so that would be one of our first suggestions if you have the ability to do that you might be surprised that it's fairly easy to get someone in there to pull the carpet up and then lay back down you know a week later a it's not as many people go ahead one was more coming from the walls like it was a it was literally any you could it was like spongy there was a bit of that that much water had gotten in in the in this one one side one area maybe five foot area of the of the lower level that the rest of the area we didn't notice the water slick but you're saying just moisture wicking up through the concrete in general causes the problem well it yeah it's likely to yeah we call it in the industry if you want to sound really smart you call a capitol arity that concrete will literally you know do it we just described with the moisture it'll wicket capillary action will bring it up what are you doing out on that wall was overhang and gutter and downspouts to make sure that no surface water can get close to that one how did you fix you said you fix it from the outside how did you do that yeah that's exactly right the up on the on the front side of the house there was not a peak that we had that just took out maybe about a foot from from the house and it wasn't enough the way we do it if we if we address it would have had to put a a gutter in and then the down spout on that one foot peak like so we never did put a a gutter in there we just kind of let the the water just drop off that that one area in all of the people over some windows and our store so what I did then it was a landscaped area so I put a like a little trough there where the water was running and so I diverted it out towards away from the house you know towards towards our driveway and everything and and that seemed to take care of the problem I also put some just some plastic down far along the outside wall so that anything that Mr trough would kind of be diverted down in that and it's kind of looking away from my house to so I don't think we're getting that kind of moisture in now like like we did prior to doing that now valley he said I'm wallet I'm sorry you said you're not getting all that had to Walter well literally any water coming in I mean there may be like waking like you like you talked about for not getting actual water coming in and that and that whole wall is is insulated you know between the the poured concrete and the drywall so you know I'm kind of wondering now is is that insulation had at the at one time you know absorbed all this this water that was coming in is there a crack in the foundation and we just didn't know how to begin to address that here's here's what we would suggest I mean you have a walk out on the lake side so it's it's highly doubtful that that this is a ground water problem right the water scattered coming from above yeah yeah yeah so it's a reasonable assumption so we would we would suggest a couple things by some cheap humana's stats I mean literally you can buy ten dollar little you know sit on your desk type humana stats and play some around there and track the humidity down there literally a floor level at the base of that wall and then maybe eight feet up try to de humidify run your furnace motor more continually to push air through that basement and distributed out through the house but the source of the water still has to be what can suggest yeah and here's my concern Valerie it's very hard they don't take this the wrong way then if you're gonna act of water in your basement for a homeowner to eliminate a hundred percent of it so you may have eliminated ninety percent of it or ninety five percent of the put that five percent coming in is still enough to do damage we think infraredx chuchus haven't scanned it haven't scared out of there's any went back there because a lot of times in those basements the rod whole sleek and they'll have to leak a lot and you can't tell because the finished basement and if it's just like a little bit that's enough to make it multi down there so if we get someone like infrared person to come in and shoot those walls they can tell you where that moisture content lady coming in yes there is a small active water and then again I go back outside I would make sure is that again any rain water any snow is being diverted ten twelve feet well away from that house so better we're gonna go to break we come back we're going to give out over the air a couple of numbers that you can call for infrared or anybody else out there is having this issue in the meantime I get so many questions asked me how the solar work how does it work well it worked as they come.
