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.

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

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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...
