If your basement is constantly flooding, it could be that your gutters need an extension. Undertaking this kind of project is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. All you need is a downspout extension.
Installing one should allow heavy rainfall that usually accumulates in your gutters to flow further away and hopefully far away from your basement. As luck would have it, there are a handful of designs to fit your aesthetic preferences.
Remove Pet Hair
If pet hair is the first thing you see when you enter your home, it definitely means you need to do some pet hair removal. But we also know that getting all the tufts of hair out of your rugs and carpets can be tough, if not impossible.
Let's face it, vacuum cleaners can only do so much, this is where your squeegee comes in. Simply use the squeegee to collect the hairs together with the rubber edge.
How to Remove Carpet Dents
If you've had to rearrange furniture, you'll know that dents in your carpets can take a long time to disappear. To remove the dents overnight, all you need to do is place ice blocks over the indentation.
It should take a few hours, anywhere from 3-5, so you could also leave them overnight. As the ice slowly melts, the water will absorb the fibers of the carpet and diminish the dents until they're as good as gone.
Are your rattling windows keeping you up during a stormy night? Well, it could also indicate an issue with the window seal. Purchase some corn cushions, which can be bought at any pharmacy, and stick them to the window frames.
This will help buffer the window frames and keep drafts from affecting them so much. If you need a sturdier fix, then you could caulk them up by applying caulk along the edges of the window.
Decaying Wooden Frames
When you’re living in a house, you tend not to think much about the wooden frames unless it starts to decay — and that’s when you give your local repairman a call. But do you really need to?
If left untreated, this could become a serious issue which eventually means you need to replace the whole window frame. But before that happens, you can coat some epoxy on the rotten area, which will protect it from decaying any further.
