Favorite lies of agencies, giving rooms to rent in London

Unlike agencies selling real estate, those who rent it are less regulated and do not fall under the provisions of the 1979 Estate Agent Act. And the prices of rooms in London are still ridiculously high and finding home rentals can be quite depressive experience if you do not know how to swim the murky waters constantly confused by the profession “Lodging agent.” Post a brief revelation Steve Lucas – formerly of such an agency and author of the book “Inside EA: A Behind the Scenes Look at How Estate Agents Operate”, and the site HouseSimple.co.uk.

At the apartment has shown high interest “There has been lots of interest”

Interest is well. But no concrete commitments. Get ready to leave their pledge your left kidney to be able to pay the deposit. Another possible reason is that there is somewhere in the chambers of the house has large patches of mold, etc.

It has all modern facilities “All modern fixtures”

But it is very likely that these modern for its time equipment have been purchased in 1995, for example. In most cases, these municipal facilities simply have not delivered enough recently to go to the “modern”.

“Must see”

… and all the other rooms on the market on which they should find a tenant, perhaps? This label sticks hundred percent of any accommodation that is available, without thinking for a second what they want to say this.

“Within walking distance”

Steve Lucas: “cunning words. Walking distance, but for whom? For my grandmother or Jessica? If you play by the rules, the distance should be reported as “walking” only if it is measured to fit within 1 mile or 10-minute walk “

“To a trendy neighbourhood or Tube station”

Except your street by some unwritten law never has a part of that” destination “. Agencies always feel obliged to some upbeat sticky label where the dwelling is located, and along with this comes out and all stations in London to qualify for the “fashion” (as long as you are close to your home, of course).

Certainly one thing you will be advised even by real estate agencyа and this is to clean professionally your rented property when you moving out. I have good experience with end of tenancy cleaning in East London.

Banting Diet

The Banting Diet/Lifestyle is the famous high fat low carb diet that has become a common name to most individuals, as many people have changed their eating habits and incorporated the Banting Diet as their new must have food. Those individuals who have been following this form of diet religiously have experienced amazing results, whereas some feel it has done nothing for them.

With life comes the highs and lows, similarly we experience the same with diets, no matter what diet we choose they will be highs and lows. So, let me enlighten you more on the highs and lows of the Banting Diet.

To most individuals if a diet can produce weight loss then that is the best news for that individual. The Banting Diet effects each individual different as we are all not the same and also, we should take into count an individual medical history as well as their past food choices. Little factors can affect individuals who undergo this form of diet.

Flu-like symptoms

The one factor that is common in all individuals who undergo the Banting Diet is they experience flu like symptoms, known as the ‘the induction’ flu. It is very common in the firsts weeks of the high fat low carb diet. Also headaches can be experienced, vomiting, nausea and may experience slight confusion of the brain. But nothing to serious and theses symptoms do disappear after a few days. Actually, speaking these symptom’s individuals undergo can literally be avoided if the individual just keeps themselves properly hydrated. A simple quick fix method is to add some salt to water and consume it as this will reduce the side effects that comes with the diet.

Leg Cramps

Another common side effect of the high fat low carb diet, leg cramps occurs due to the loss of magnesium in the body and its not to serious but can create much discomfort for the individual. A simple solution is to consume much liquids, like salt water or take a magnesium supplement to reduce those painful cramps.


This happens and is quite common in certain individuals, due to the change in diet and the body is learning to adapt to the change. Constipation also occurs due to the low carb diet as the body becomes dehydrated. So again, drinking fluids with salt is going to help the body from becoming dehydrated, and consume plenty of non – starchy veggies.

Bad Breath

No one would like to have bad breath but this occurs in some individuals due to the ketone levels in the body which produces acetone. But this is a good result in a way as this shows that the body is burning down the fats. All that is needed is some good oral hygiene as the side effects is temporary.

Heart Palpitations

Due to this form of diet the body gets dehydrated so there is less fluid to help in blood circulation as the heart will have to pump faster to help the blood flow. So, drink plenty of fluids and this will help resolve the problem.

So, to sum up when you are on the Banting Diet always make sure that you always remain hydrated as this will prevent your body from experiencing some of the common side-effects experienced by some individuals. Eat enough of veggies and try not to consume too many starchy veggies.

And most importantly try and get some salt in the body by either by taking some magnesium supplement or consume salt water.

How to keep your floor coverings?

“Flying” mats for added protection

To be honest, the best way to keep the flooring would be if you do not you step on it. Instead of making strategic moves, however, simply place mats in places with the greatest “trafficking” as entrance hall, living room and bedroom around.

Choose the right carpet for different rooms

On the market will find the various types of rugs by size, shape and decoration, so this is the right time to furnish your home with such entirely on your taste! In terms of material, acrylic rugs are ideal because they are resistant to stain and fade from sunlight. Despite these their great qualities, they are not suitable for the hall and entrance hall as quickly wear out.

Here’s who will stop contaminants front door

Dust and sand are sworn enemies of the floors, so we recommend you keep them away from them by placing a mat at the front door. This will protect the parquet and tiles from scratches and carpet from mud stains. If necessary, place mats and the other rooms, bedroom and bathroom for example.

Bet on the mat with an intriguing design

The good news is that not sacrificing attractiveness in the name of functionality and you can choose doormat saying “Welcome” or “Please pull off your shoes,” and why not something more playful. You can even manifest sense of humor with slogans like, “Oh, do you like?” or “Better go to the neighbors.” The materials from which the mat is made, are also a matter of choice, but the most common are rubber and carpet.

The vacuum cleaner is your new best faithful assistant

Whether you bet on the parquet, tiles or other flooring for your home, its regular cleaning is the key to the preservation of its kind for long. For this purpose at least once a week, clean it with a vacuum cleaner, but if you’re a fan of her irritating hum, try a broom. If you are not a fan of both ideas better call to carpet cleaning Enfield. Dust and sand, which we import from outside can scratch the surface and in the best case, to destroy their coverage. Note the tabs on the vacuum cleaner and use these for rough surfaces, because although in rare cases, others can also cause damage.
