Handyman’s Small Home Repair Tips

Conway HandymanCustomer’s Story – Okay, I’ll admit it. I didn’t follow my own advice. Although I was aware of the signs of potential difficulty, I chose not to consider them serious. It has been getting more difficult to turn the key in my front door lock for a while. I tried cleaning the key with olive oil, and also cleaned the lock faceplate which was covered in pet hair.

I put off calling a Conway handyman or fixing it until I was locked in my house. It was quite frightening at first. My boy was still outside so I gave him a pair of pliers through my home window. We were able to find a handyman who was able to adjust the lock at 9:30 in the middle of the night. This incident was never repeated so I ensured that small repairs were done immediately. The Conway handyman offered some helpful tips.

Four Handyman Tasks That You Must Do Now

Leakages of minor magnitude in roofing systems.

You should have a zero tolerance policy for any “small” drips or dampness on your walls and ceiling. Water can cause severe damage to your home, as opposed to fire. The longer you leave it unattended, the worse it will get.

PS: Even if the source is not found, it does not necessarily mean that everything’s wrong. Water is like toothache discomfort. It takes a journey.

Fallen leaves.

Even if you have been meticulous in removing fallen leaves from your fall clean-up, wintertime will blow them around on your exterior home windows, sills, roof rain gutters, and backyard. They can trap water and cause significant damage to your roof and walls.

Fractures on outside walls surfaces.

A small crack in the stucco or stonework outside of your home could be quite easy to fix, according to the handyman. However, it is likely to worsen over time, which will make repairs more costly and taxing.

Your smoke alarm or Carbon Monoxide system may emit unusual sounds or light patterns.

The carbon monoxide and smoke alarms are cost-effective and easy to maintain. They can and do save lives. Pay attention to any kind of unusual actions. Tweeting– A brief beep at 30-second intervals is a sign that the batteries need to be changed (preferably, this should be done semi-annually; you can collaborate with the springtime and drop clock adjustments to aid you remember). If you notice unusual patterns in blinking or beeping, it could indicate a system breakdown. Have the system changed or fixed immediately.

Handyman Conway can provide quality service if you are unable to repair the damage.
