Common questions about home maintenance


Do you have questions about home maintenance?

You're not alone!

People are constantly looking up how to care for their home. Here are some common questions.

1. How do I repair a small foundation crack? 

If you find a small crack in your foundation, you should be able to fix it. 

Realtor said, "You can repair a small crack with a concrete sealer that you can find at any home improvement store."

A larger crack should definitely be checked out by a professional. 

2. How do I unclog a drain?

Fixing a minor clog is definitely something you can do!

How Stuff Works said, "If you have a moderately clogged drain, try this homemade drain cleaner: Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. Be careful. The two ingredients interact with foaming and fumes, so replace the drain cover loosely."

3. How often should I clean the gutters?

This one has a simple answer. 

Esurance said, "Gutters filled with vegetation, leaves, or other dry debris are ticking tinderboxes, just waiting to ignite when it gets hot. Get up on that ladder and clean your drain pipes every few months to prevent a variety of headaches."

4. When should I call a professional?

If you're feeling uncertain or dealing with dangerous tasks like electricity it's a good idea to call in the pros. HeyBryan is here to help with your home maintenance needs!
