Overlooked Threats To Your Home’s Quality

If you’re going to enjoy your home to the max, as you should, then it’s important that you’re taking steps to ensure that the quality of the property is always high. As any experienced homeowner knows, a house won’t take care of itself; it needs to be actively managed. In doing so, you won’t just make the property a more enjoyable place to be, but you’ll also ensure that value is continually nudged in the right direction. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the threats to the home that are frequently overlooked. Make sure that your home doesn’t suffer from any of them!

Attracting Pests


You’ll want to ensure that the only things living on your property are the people (and pets) that have been invited to do so. Alas, that’s not always the case. From time to time, we can often find that we have unwelcome guests in the home -- namely, pests. Though this is more of a concern in certain parts of the country than others, it’s something that affects all properties. You can reduce the likelihood of pests setting up camp in your home by ensuring it’s always kept clean. If you notice that something’s there, then take action straight away. 


Damp Issues


There’s nothing good that can come from a damp home. You’ll find that it’s a less enjoyable place to be, but it can also have a significantly detrimental impact on the infrastructure of the house. The key to avoiding this issue is to create a watertight property so that no moisture can enter the house. It’s especially important to pay attention to areas of the house where humans generally don’t go, such as the crawl space. You can click here to learn more about how to insulate your crawl space, which will help keep mold away, among other benefits. Checking that your gutters are working correctly and that your roof isn’t damaged will also help.


Small DIY Problems


All homeowners handle the big problems when they arrive, but what about the small problems? These are the small DIY tasks that aren’t significant enough to hire a professional, but which can bring down the quality of your home. If your property has many small problems, then you’ve got one big problem! You can get around this issue by learning the basics of DIY. When you see you have a problem, you’ll just need to get out your toolkit and get to work!


External Areas


Finally, remember that the external areas around your property can also have a big impact on your home. For example, if you have a dangerous tree outside your property, then one night of strong winds might be enough to cause that tree to hit your home, which could have a devastating impact on your property. Periodically checking the condition of your trees will help to keep everything safe. If it looks dangerous, then hire a tree surgeon to trim the dangerous branches, or get rid of the tree altogether.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
