Water damage in your home can be the result of many things – wide scale flooding, or a local burst pipe, a hurricane or an earthquake. Whatever the cause of the water damage lets look at how to clean this mess up!
10) Tighten down the closet bolts making sure NOT to use too much torque. You aren’t installing tires on a race car here so, take it easy Mr. Goodwrench. You just want to hold the toilet in place, not crack the porcelain base of the toilet or damage the drain flange.
The good news is that the evolution of house paint has come a long way with low-odor and even odorless lines for some applications. The bad news is there are still so many reasons to use the smelly stuff, especially if you’re repainting an older home. Alkyd (oil-based) and shellac or alcohol primers are especially effective in sealing restore corona and old oil painted surfaces to upgrade them to Latex top coats. But they’re also very smelly with potentially long-lasting vapors. Even the most common low-odor alkyd paints often used today to repaint wood work can have a lingering odor for days under the most ventilated conditions.

We have all been told that kitchens and baths sell homes, and to some extent, this is true. If you are contemplating to renovate either one of these rooms, I would suggest going for it as a major national lender suggests that the return on a neighborhood appropriate bathroom is as high as 85-90%. The return on updating your kitchen can be lower 65-75%, depending on several factors. While both these figures may not be exciting to hear, you can certainly improve those statistics if you can do the work yourself. I caution the fearless home improvers though as sometimes these kind of projects can become quite a nightmare. In addition, a poor tiling job, improper plumbing, or poorly finished cabinets can severely hinder your return on investment.
House inspectors are not all licensed. If you got the average guy who is in the scene to help sell houses, how can you be sure he knows what to look out for? He may not know a thing about plumbing but knows if a tap does not work, or he is not an engineer but says the foundation of the house can sit 20 giants without falling apart. Could you trust him?
And even better solution is to turn the unit fan on and allow it to run continuously – even though the cooling is off. This pushes warm air through the system, which will cause the ice to melt more quickly.
