Ever had one of those days where it feels as if everything that can break in your home decides to do just that? The fridge goes on the fritz. The sink stops up. The soothing hum of the ceiling fan morphs into something that sounds a lot like a helicopter hovers in the family room. Things need fixing, and you’re just the person to do it!
It’s true that homeownership brings a feeling of accomplishment. Yet, fixing the myriad of small problems that accompany home ownership takes that feeling to a higher level – and you can’t get there without the proper tools.
Homes should come with an instruction manual, but they don’t. And, many a homeowner has turned handyman out of necessity. What they have that you may need is a toolkit.
It takes more than a pair of scissors and a roll of duct tape to keep a household intact. Start with the big items first.
Tools you should have around the house include:
One of the major types of insurance loss for homeowners is water damage. Everything from a burst pipe to a leaking washing machine hose can happen in the blink of an eye. When a water leak occurs, knowing where the valves are and how to shut them off is an invaluable bit of knowledge.
Power outages are most commonly associated with stormy weather. However, sometimes they may come when skies are blue, such as when a circuit is overloaded. A tripped circuit breaker shouldn’t keep you in the dark for long, if you know what to do.
Though we may take pride in fixing anything and everything around the house, we also have to know when to take a step back and call in the professionals.
Since every wise homeowner has a back-up plan, have the contact information for a good handy-person on speed dial. Sometimes the best tools for the job may be as easy as a phone call away.
