Easy Solutions To Real Home Problems

It can be devastating when something goes wrong in the home. Your home is your resting place, your comfort zone. When something untoward occurs, it can really shake things up. And if you are unsure about what to do with those problems, then it is even more worrying.   There are some common issues which all homeowners are likely to experience at some point in their lives. Knowing what they are, and how to deal with them, can make a huge difference in the long run. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some easy solutions to some of those serious problems which occur in the home.


Flickering Lights

We have all seen this happen from time to time in different buildings. Chances are, it has happened at least once in your home too. A light flickering once is not necessarily anything to worry about. But if the lights in your home start to flicker on a regular basis, then you might need to get them checked out. In the worst case scenario, this could actually be a symptom of something pretty serious. Flickering lights can be a sign of loose connections in the electrical panel. This, in turn, will probably be causing power to arc - or jump - over the gaps. And that is a serious matter indeed. Arcing can very easily lead to fires, and we want to avoid that at all costs. So what can you do about this problem? There is a chance that you could tighten the connection yourself, but you probably won’t want to risk it. For most people, it will be far preferable to call in a professional electrician. With electrics, safer is always better.


Water Damage
This next common issue is something that can be caused by a huge variety of different circumstances. More often than not, water damage is the result of a single, small leak somewhere in the network of pipes. Of course, at other times it can be due to a larger incident, such as something going wrong with the central plumbing. Whatever the cause, there is no doubt that water damage can cause a huge amount of hassle in the home. If it gets anywhere near the electricals, it could even be deadly. If you have had any water damage issues in your home, you should look for professional water damage restoration immediately. The quicker you get it sorted, the better.


Ice Dams

Ice dams are significantly less common compared to the previous two issues. However, when they occur they are still a huge nuisance. As such, it is useful to know what you can do about them if they do happen in your home. Ice dams usually occur after a period of heavy snowfall, and they can cause quite a lot of damage if left unchecked. If your home develops ice dams, you should take care not to try and get on the roof to fix it yourself. In the worst case scenario, you might even end up falling through and hurting yourself. Instead, get the professionals in to do it for you.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
