If you’ve ever forgotten to change your furnace filter, I can promise that you’re not the only one. It’s easy to forget to do those monthly or seasonal maintenance tasks in the midst of finding time to try and perform the daily and weekly chores. Especially if you have a busy life, or if you’re aging and find that you can’t, or shouldn’t, do it all anymore. We’ve identified the 10 most common and put together a list for you. 1. Fix a Leaky Faucet. Drip. Drip. Drip. Each time a faucet is faulty it can quickly cost you hundreds in your monthly water bills. Stop the drip fast and fix your leaky faucets as soon as they start. 2. Drain the Hot Water Heater, at least once a year. If you have hard water in your area, experts recommend that you drain it even more often than that. Overtime sediment can build up in your hot water heater that can cause it to malfunction, and cause scalding. Draining the heater removes the build-up and keeps your hot water heater working for longer. A handyman can do this. 3. Caulk your Drafty Windows. To prevent air leaks that can raise your heating and cooling bills, consider caulking your windows. Do it both on the outside and inside of the home. Make sure you choose the right caulk and that you avoid any weep holes that allow water to drip and avoid making its way inside or causing mold issues down the road. 4. Change the Furnace Air Filter. A filter does as it advertises. It removes or filters advertisements from the air that’s running through the home. If the filter isn’t changed often enough it will block the airflow and your system will have to work harder to push the air through. 5. Fix the Running Toilet. Like the leaky faucet, a running toilet can rack up a hefty water bill. Make sure that the toilet’s flapper seal is working and replace it if it’s not. If the flapper is not your issue, consider turning off the water supply and flushing the remaining water out of the tank and proceeding from there. 6. Check the Fire Extinguisher. You might have heard the saying never put a grease fire out with water, well we like to say never have a kitchen without a fire extinguisher. Make sure that your fire extinguisher is available at a moment’s notice and keep yourself up to date on how to use it so that you don’t panic in an emergency situation. 7. Clean the Sink Aerators. Does your sink ever seem to sputter on you, or is the stream a fraction of what it once was? Don’t replace the faucet, but check on your faucet aerator. Changes are you might just need to clean it or replace it and the part on average runs less than 10 dollars and is easy to change with no prior experience. 8. Check Smoke and CO2 Detectors. Just like checking your fire extinguisher when and if disaster hits you want to be prepared. Make sure that batteries are always changed in your various detectors in your home so if they beep at you, you’re able to hear it. 9. WD-40. WD-40 is for more than a squeaky door hinge, although certainly you can use it for such. WD-40 can review sticky residue from old paneling, and keeps machine parts moving smoothly, polishes brass finishes and much more. Using WD-40 around your house can help keep things in tip top shape. 10. Tighten Screws on Furniture. This is often something that we forget to do until your chair is wobbly enough to notice. At least once a year you should tighten your screws on your furniture to keep them strong and together. For things that you move more often, such as chairs, tighten the screws every 6 months. This is because repeated use will loosen screws faster than a table that’s moved very few times a year. These are only 10 of the most common things to slip from your mind. TruBlue offers a monthly or quarterly subscription House Care Plus, where we can complete these tasks and more for you so that your house keeps running at tip top shape. Because let’s be honest, when was the last time you drained your water heater?
When you move somewhere new, you can fall prey to the puppy dog stage. Your new home is exciting and different from your last, usually an improvement. It’s great! But as you live there longer, just like any relationship, the small things might start to get on your nerves. The projects and problems that you initially put off start to grow and grow. When that happens, don’t worry. There are some small changes you can make to help you fall in love with your home again. Change out your old sink faucet for a new one. If you start to notice your water pressure dropping, or if you dread doing your dishes by hand, it might be time to replace your faucet. Doing this can make your kitchen look more updated on a limited budget. Plus, with all of the cool technology that faucets can offer, you might even save on your water bill each month. A simple fixture update can change the mood of the whole room, and especially your mood as you interact with the faucet each day. Update your cabinet hardware. As you grow up, it’s not uncommon for your tastes, styles, and trends to change and evolve. One of the best ways to change the feel of a kitchen or bathroom on the cheap is by updating the hardware and knobs. Style is something everyone wants to express, and whether you're adding a pop of color, the glam of crystal knobs, or changing the type of pull, hardware is a great choice that can easily evolve alongside you. Replace your Furnace Filter. Doing this on a monthly basis will help keep your furnace running smoothly and keep the air that’s circulating throughout your home more pure. If remembering to change the filter is difficult there are subscription services that will send you a new filter each month, or we offer a monthly subscription service that sends a handyman to your home each month to complete the various monthly and seasonal upkeep that might otherwise get forgotten about. Upgrade your shower head. Showers are a great way to relieve stress, and even relax your muscles, but sometimes the old showerhead just won’t cut it. A new shower head typically provides better water pressure and they make newer models that are more water efficient. With many different kinds and types to choose from, you can get anything from a rain head to a dual functional head. Different showerheads can help with different tasks too, do you often bathe your dog or take a shower seated? Opt for a handheld shower head to directly control the stream. Replace your Caulking. As caulk ages, it can get yellowed or even breakdown. Luckily, it’s super inexpensive and easy to execute with little to no experience. Simply take an exacto knife or a box blade and slice away the old caulking. Once it’s all peeled, snip the tip off your bottle of caulk, and insert it into your caulk gun. Then run the new caulking along the joint and follow the trail by smoothing it down with your finger. Voila, new caulking to make your space look fresh and clean and, most importantly, ensure it’s protected from air-leaks, and water. TruBlue Total House Care’s professionally trained technicians can make these changes and are ready to help with your house projects, from small repairs and upgrades like these to cleaning services, handyman repairs, yard work, and more.
Cheer is in the air and holiday excitement is running amok. Before winter officially hits us in full force, make sure that we’re not caught unprepared. So while we’re prepping our homes for the holiday festivities, decking the halls, hanging the lights, filling the stockings, lighting the menorahs, cleaning the house, putting up your wreaths, and preparing for family visits, don't forget to prep our homes for the winter weather. Winter weather is some of the harshest of the 4 seasons. With it comes rain, snow, ice, and of course the cold temperatures. Same as you protect yourself from the elements, by taking precautions and putting on layers the same should go for your house. Below are 6 things to do that will keep your house in tip-top shape this winter. Clean your window’s weep holes. Windows have drains. The drains ensure that the standing water that makes its way into the window tracks have some place to go, and preferably not into your house! Window weep holes allow this water to drain outside. Make sure these small holes aren’t clogged by poking out the gunk with a wire hanger or spraying some compressed air through the weep hole. Protect your air conditioning unit. Ensure that any window units that you might have are all put away before winter comes. Protect your outdoor unit by placing a sheet of plywood on its top and weighing it down with a few bricks. This small protective measure will ensure your AC is blasting on cold in a few months when you need it. Drain your water heater. Overtime water heaters collect sediment at the bottom which unevenly distribute the heat and makes your water heater underperform, or work overtime causing you to replace it sooner that you have to. It’s recommended that you drain the water heater at least once a year, preferably twice. In the winter months, this will help keep your showers nice and hot so you can warm off quickly after a frozen day. Disconnect your garden hose and turn off the water. Water freezes. Frozen water pipes can burst and that causes big problems. To avoid this, check all of your exposed piping, and don’t forget your attic too. Ensure that your pipes are covered and insulated. Check for drafts on doors and windows. Drafts let in the cold air, and make your heater work overtime. This will drive up your heating costs during the winter. To easily fix drafty doors, consider using draft guards for an airtight seal. Use weather-stripping on the attic access, the window sills, and other places where cold air can seep-in. Check your Fire Alarm Batteries. Studies have shown that the winter is the most popular season for fires. By being proactive and ensuring that the batteries in your alarms are up-to-date, it creates a safer home for everyone in your home. In the same vein, make sure your family has a Fire Safety Plan. This plan should make sure everyone knows what should happen in case of a fire emergency. We encourage you to practice a fire drill with your family twice a year. To set yourself up for success next year we have House Care Plus, a monthly or quarterly subscription handyman service. They will go around your house and check all the odds and ends of your house so that you don’t have to. Our talented house care technicians will keep your largest investment, your home, in the best shape of its life for years to come.
