Most of us think of spring and fall as the cleaning and home maintenance seasons. We spend a lot of time organizing and airing out during the spring and closing down and tightening up during the fall. However, there are several up-keeping jobs that I feel fall under the summer home maintenance must-dos.
Have you ever tried to remove a baseboard only to end up with tears or dents in the sheetrock? Even when attempting to be very gentle, I would always end up with at least one defect. Finally, I found a method that works! If you suffer from this same problem, I want to share with you how to remove baseboards without damage to your sheetrock.
Don’t you just hate it when your toilet keeps kicking on every few hours…. or minutes? It is a very annoying problem, but it may have a very simple solution. There are actually two common issues that can cause this problem. Hopefully, this little post will explain how to repair running toilets and you can get back to more important things – like getting back your sanity.
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate trying to find a reliable service or repair person. The ones that will take your money and leave you with shoddy work are a dime a dozen. While, competent, high quality workers are so very rare. That’s why, when I find a company or a person that does a good job, I like to keep track of them for future use. But, I am not much of one for keeping up with business cards. Instead, I prefer to use my own home service and repairs’ printable.
Sometimes, it’s the really small touches that make the difference in a home’s decor. This is very apparent to me when I walk into a bathroom and admire the lovely toilet flush levers that some bathrooms have. Yes, you may think it is a sad day when someone is admiring toilet levers, but then again, I am a stickler for the details. Of course, I never notice the plain levers. For some reason, my eyes just never settle on them unless they are nice. However, when I do notice them, it really solidifies that impression of quality and high-end finishes. So, if you have ever wondered how to upgrade toilet flush levers, this is for you.
