How Radon is Reduced

Even if you live far away from the northeast, the traditional hotbed of radon contamination, your home could still be at risk. Contrary to popular opinion, radon is a nationwide problem, and people in all parts of the country should be aware of the potential for contamination.

That is why it is so important for every homeowner, no matter where they live, to have their homes tested. If your home tests negative, you and your family will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are safe from this dangerous radioactive gas.

How Radon is Reduced - Top Dawg Labs

Testing Positive

If your home tests positive, you can take immediate steps to reduce the radon level in your home and mitigate the danger to your family and the value of your home. Dealing with a radon problem requires a thorough understanding of just how that radon is getting into your home, and that requires the expertise, experience and sophisticated testing equipment only a radon reduction contractor, such as, can provide.

Radon Entry Points

One of the most common ways radon enters your home is through tiny cracks in the walls surrounding it. To understand how radon enters your home and why it is so dangerous, consider that the pressure outside the walls of your home is typically much greater than the pressure inside your home. This unequal pressure can create a vacuum effect that allows radon to stream into your home through even the tiniest of cracks in the basement walls or the foundation.

To deal with this problem and reduce radon seepage, a radon reduction company will seek to equalize the pressure inside and outside your home. The company will use a number of techniques and equipment to accomplish this goal. When they are done, the pressure will be much more uniform inside and outside your home, and that can greatly reduce the amount of radon that enters your house.

How Radon is Reduced

Radon can also get into your home through a contaminated well, and that is another thing an experienced radon reduction company will be able to deal with. When your well water is contaminated by radon, that radioactive gas is entering your home each time you use your washing machine, dishwasher or shower, and even every time you turn on the faucet. A quality radon reduction company will be able to assess the state of your well water and make the changes necessary to stop that radioactive gas from seeping into the surrounding water. When the work is done, you and your family can breathe easy, knowing that a dangerous threat has been removed from your home.

How to Weld

Before you learn how to weld make sure you have all the equipment your going to need to protect yourself.

Welding produces a bright arc that’s equivalent to the sun’s brightness, so cover your entire body with non flammable clothing, 100% cotton or wool is best. Welding safety is important, don’t think you can get away with putting on some spf 90 sun screen just because it’s hot outside and you don’t want to wear long sleeves.

If you choose not to heed my warning you do so at your own risk! I just hope you’ve stocked up on some aloe vera. Here’s a short list to get you started.

  • Welding helmet – Your not a welder with out a welding helmet, so go get one.(shade 10 or higher)
  • Welding gloves – just because you have gloves on doesn’t mean you should be touching your weld.
  • Leather jacket – A long sleeve cotton shirt is just as good if your out in hot weather, just as long as you don’t mind sparks burning holes in your shirt and turning it into swiss cheese.
  • Welding cap – The welding helmet only protects your face not your hair.
  • Leather steel toe boots – Any time your working with steel or any kind of construction work, its always a good idea to protect your toes. Welders even have some bad ass looking boots that have a met-guard that protects the entire top of the foot. You might consider getting a pair if you choose to do this as full time work or if you just want to look bad ass, if you do decide to buy it just to look cool and I see you in public, I’m gonna laugh at you.

I can’t stress enough the importance of welding safety, it’s a big part in learning how to weld, make sure your always wearing the appropriate welding gear!

Alright so now you’ve got your gear on and your ready for some welding basics. Take your ground clamp and attach it to your work piece. Since your probably new at this your gonna want to practice laying down beads on a steel plate (assuming that your set up to weld steel). Now strike your arc and start welding!

How to Weld - Top Dawg Labs

Your first few beads probably aren’t gonna be pretty, but that’s okay, your first few beads let you know what you need to do to make a pretty weld. Basically there’s two main things you have to think about when you learn how to weld, Travel speed and Amps.

Here are a few welding tips. If you travel too slow your weld is going to build up and probably look like a long giant blob (depending on your amps), too fast and it might come out too thin or you might get some undercut (once again depending on your amps).

If your amps are too high your probably going to have a lot of spatter and you might get some undercut (depending on your travel speed), amps too low and your not gonna get any penetration and your weld will probably look like rat turds (Depending on your travel speed… okay maybe not so much on your travel speed, but do you see how these to factors interplay with each other?)

Now it is possible to have your amps a little too high and still lay down a nice bead, actually I’d rather you have it a little too high then too low, You just have to travel a bit faster, make sure you watch that puddle whatever your puddle looks like is what your weld’s gonna look like, make sure that puddle is nice and even. It all comes with time and practice so for now just play around with the heat and your speed and see how many different ways you can make a weld look.

Ideally you want your weld to have good penetration, with a slight convex and uniform look. No porosity, undercut, or cold lap. Oh… one more thing, it also has to be straight. If you can’t weld straight try welding near the edge of the plate and use the edge as a guide then lay down another bead just below that one and so on.

I hope you’ve found my welding tips useful, just continue to practice welding basics until your confident. Learning how to weld is easy and fun, so what are you waiting for? Go out there and burn some rod!

Invention Patentability Search - Top Dawg Labs
Business Law

Invention Patentability Search

Alternately, prior to investing in the filing of a patent application, it is sometimes wise, though also not mandatory, to conduct or have conducted a patentability search. This type of search looks at patents and public information from anywhere and any past time to see whether the invention is truly novel and to gauge the likelihood that a patent on it can indeed be obtained.

Since the results of a patentability search are again proportional to the time/money spent, one must weigh the cost of such a search against the cost of filing the application without, and then relying on the search conducted by the Patent Office as part of the application’s examination. And regardless of the amount spent on a patentability search, the results are almost always going to be less reliable than a right-to-use search. That is where a patent agency like InventHelp comes in. You can read more about InventHelp on UrbanMatter.

Many inventors forego a patentability search altogether or limit it by cost to an affordable breadth with the understanding that the reliability of the results obtained are similarly limited.

Invention Patentability Search - Top Dawg Labs

The patent application is prepared with claims that are written as broadly as the known prior art would allow. But once the patent application has been filed with the requisite Filing Fee, it is assigned to a patent examiner who conducts his own patentability search and determines the allowability of those claims against his results.

It is rare to obtain an allowance on the application’s broadest claims absent some argument with the examiner. In the U.S., an invention’s patentability depends on its usefulness, novelty, and non-obviousness. Usefulness is rarely challenged by the modern examiner and novelty can be judged by a direct comparison to the examiner’s search results. But a rejection based on an examiner’s assertion that the claim is merely obvious in view of the prior art or through some combination of the prior art can be more difficult to overcome and require strong arguments. Getting support from InventHelp would be advisable.

The examiner issues his opinions and findings in an Office Action. Except in the case of “dead ringer” prior art, amendments which narrow the scope of the claims can usually be made to distinguish over the prior art and gain allowance. There may be several Office Actions and Amendments required before the application is allowed and a patent is granted, if one is granted at all.

Patent Applications

Patents are formal legal documents and should be drafted by a registered patent attorney. Many Inventors feel they can prepare a patent application themselves because they have an understanding of how the invention works. Of course they have an understanding. . . they developed the idea! Unfortunately, this often turns into a nightmare. Remember, a U.S. Patent is a legal document.

If the patent application is not prepared correctly, the Inventor may end up spending more money to fix the patent application than the Patent Attorney or a Patent agency, such as InventHelp, would have charged to draft it in the first place. Alternatively the patent attorney may have to draft an entirely new patent application which results in wasted time and money for the Inventor.

Patent attorneys prepare a variety of Patents and Patent Applications. The following is a brief description of each:

However a Provisional Patent Application provides the Inventor a priority date and a 1 year grace period to file a Utility Patent Application and/or a PCT International Patent Application. Although Provisional Patent Applications do not require many of the formalities as a Utility Patent Application (and can therefore be less expensive) a Provisional Patent Application should comply with the written description requirement including best mode. A Provisional Patent Application does not effect the term of a resulting issued U.S. Patent. as discussed in this article on

A PCT Patent Application is also commonly referred to as an International Patent Application. A PCT Patent Application never issues as a Patent itself. The PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) provides a centralized method for filing a patent application throughout most of the industrialized country. Thus, the patent application eventually must enter the national stage of each desired country. Currently there are about 181 Member States (countries) that belong to the PCT.
