Home maintenance is an important task to stay on top of. As a homeowner, I’ve learned that problems will arise around the house from time to time. Most of the problems are entirely preventable too, with regular home maintenance. Clogged pipes are a gross task to complete but an easy one to take care of if you know how. Learn how to clear a clogged drain fast.

Nothing is worse than a nasty clog. If you have a clog in your bathtub, it’s caused by hair and soap scum that builds up in your pipe, hence a clogged pipe. If the clog happens in the kitchen, it’s caused by grease, soap residue and bits of food that have gone down the drain. No matter where the clog is located, you want the clog gone fast.

 

How To Clear A Clogged Drain Fast

 

Clear a Clogged Drain

When your drain is clogged, you have a few options you can use to clear a clogged drain.

  • Option one, you could use a kitchen plunger. You will plunge, plunge, and plunge away until you have finally unclogged the drain. This method is labor intensive depending on the nature and stubbornness of the clog, and it can be a bit messy. I, personally do not recommend using option one, if you want a faster and easier method to unclog the drain.
  • Option two, grab a bottle of Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover for the easiest and fastest way to unclog your drain. Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover starts working immediately to clear blocked drains fast. The Gel formula is stronger than other brands and has a thick consistency to power through standing water to remove the most stubborn of clogs. Simply pour the clog remover directly into the drain, and wait at least 5 minutes to see if the clog has drained. It may take longer than 5 minutes and up to overnight to unclog the drain.

 

 

Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover

My entire family uses Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover to clear a clogged drain, and we have for many years. Roto-Rooter is the only clog remover we purchase because we know that it works fast. We trust that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover will get the job done. They stand behind their products. Roto-Rooter guarantees that their products work, or it’s free. I like a company that stands behind their product. If you have a clog that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover couldn’t power through, then go to their website to learn how to get a refund.

When to Replace your Windows

Are you wondering when to replace your windows? You need to inspect your windows to see if they have any of the following problems;

  • Drafts– If your windows are drafty, they are allowing heat to come in from the outside. You are pretty much throwing money out the window.
  • Single pane windows– Some older homes have single pane windows. Double pane windows have an insulating layer of gas between the panes; single pane windows do not have this benefit. Therefore they are less energy-efficient.
  • Frame condition– Older windows, especially wood windows, take a beating over time. Frames can become warped and cracked due to temperature fluctuations over time.
  • Inoperable windows– Often go hand-in-hand with poor frame condition, older windows can become inoperable. Your windows may not open due to sash wear, being painted shut under many layers of paint, or not remain open due to sash or balance problems.
  • Glass condition– Over time, seals between the two panes of glass can weaken and become broken. When seal failure occurs, the gas between the panes escapes and you lose the beneficial insulating properties. A sure sign of seal failure is fog or condensation on the inner glass.
  • Increased utility bills– Compare your energy bills from the last few years. Don’t look at the dollars spent- compare the kilowatt hours used in the same month over years. If you see an increase, that is an indication your home isn’t as energy-efficient as it once was. Some utility providers offer online usage analysis tools to help determine if your usage has increased.

If your windows have any of the above problems, then it is time to replace your windows.

Plumbing Fixes You Can Do Yourself to Save Money

As a Roto-Rooter Brand Ambassador, I will be sharing various ways you can do-it-yourself to fix common plumbing issues that arise around the house without calling a professional. There are many plumbing fixes you can do yourself to save money. Stay tuned as I share tips throughout the year.

This is my 2nd post in a series of do-it-yourself plumbing problems that may arise. There are many plumbing fixes you can do yourself to save money. First off I am a pretty handy person, and I always try to fix any plumbing issues by myself without calling an expensive professional to fix it.

Plumbing issues arise around the house from time to time. That doesn’t mean you can’t handle it yourself. Especially if it’s plumbing fixes you can do yourself to save money.

Clear a Clogged Drain

Clogged drains happen. If you have a clogged drain, try unclogging it yourself. Try sticking a wire down the drain to clear the blockage (an untwisted wire clothes hanger works great). Most of the time the wire will pull up hair and scum buildup, allowing you to clear the drain. Sometimes you need more than a wire to clear the blockage. Use a plunger (a small kitchen plunger works great on sink and shower drains) to plunge the blockage away. When you have tried unsuccessfully to unclog your drain using the other methods, try a clog remover like Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover.

An Introduction to Roto-Rooter

Posted by Stacey Smith | DIY

This post is brought to you in partnership with Roto-Rooter®. I am pleased to announce I was chosen as a Roto-Rooter® Brand Ambassador.  I will be sharing various ways you can do-it-yourself to fix common plumbing issues that arise around the house without calling a professional. Stay tuned as I share tips throughout the year.

An Introduction to Roto-Rooter

Roto-Rooter Strongest Brand

Image Courtesy: rotorooter-products.com

In my first post of a series, I want to introduce Roto-Rooter® to you as a brand I have used for over twenty years in every home I have ever lived in. I have really long hair, and it does not take long before it has caused a slow running drain in the shower or a complete clog. I trust that when I pour Roto-Rooter down my drain that it will unclog my drain in no time.

Why do I trust Roto-Rooter to unclog my drain?

For one, It works, plain and simple and it is safe for all pipes.

About Roto-Rooter®

Roto-Rooter has been around for over 80 years. They are the plumbing experts we have come to trust. You know the brand as #1 in plumbing and drain services, but did you know that you can have the power of Roto-Rooter in your home, without calling a professional to do the work, you can do-it-yourself.

I use Roto-Rooter products in my home when I have a clogged drain and for routine maintenance of my pipes and septic system. They have a complete line of powerful and fast acting drain and septic care products that help me solve plumbing issues around the house.

Roto-Rooter® has a product that can help you tackle your plumbing issues without calling in a pro.

Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover

Clog Removers

Gel Clog Remover and Hair Clog Remover

The Gel Clog Removers start working immediately to clear blocked drains fast. They have 25% more active ingredients than the national leading brand and the power to penetrate through standing water to clear the source of the clog. Using the gel formula removes the toughest of hair clogs and soap scum from sinks, tub, and shower drains. Tests have proven that the Gel Clog Removers powers through clogs 50% faster than other national brands.

 

Septic Care

Septic Treatment– Scientifically formulated to help prevent septic backup. It has 2x more natural enzyme formula than the national leading brand to eliminate more paper, oils, grease, fats, protein, and starch. It eliminates unpleasant odors and damage to leach fields. Use it monthly to avoid costly and messy backups. Believe me; you do not want your septic tank to back up. You don’t want to have to deal with that yucky, icky mess.

Clogged drains happen from time to time. Hair, soap scum, and grease build up and cause a clog. Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover maximum strength clears blocked drains fast. If you have a clog in your pipe, use the Gel Clog Remover to clear the clog fast.

Evite helps bring families together

I was compensated by Evite™ for my time in developing this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

Evite Helps Bring Families Together

Evite™ helps bring families together for Easter. Every year my family gets together for an Easter dinner and Easter Egg Hunt. I wanted to change things up this year and have the dinner and egg hunt at my house instead of my parents house. With the help of Evite, I was able to reach every family member near and far and invite them to the Smith Family Easter Dinner and Egg Hunt, by sending them an Evite Easter Card.

I was really inspired by the pastel colors (pink, greens, and blues), the cute bunnies and colorful easter eggs on my Evite invitation , that I carried the Easter Egg Hunt theme into the decor of my home. Baskets of decorated eggs filled with prizes are awaiting to be hidden on Sunday morning. The Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs are the decorations that adorn my home for this years easter celebration. I purchased napkins with bunnies and colorful, decorated eggs to add a little flair to my table setting.

We will celebrate Easter with an egg hunt and a nice dinner, along with my family. I hope this is a start of a new tradition of celebrating Easter at my home and the gigantic easter egg hunt that we have planned. Who knows next year I may expand the egg hunt to include my small town community. That would be an easy event to handle using the Evite services.

6 Tips to Prepare You to Purchase a Home

"Cube Home" by Randen Pederson i

Whether you are looking to purchase your first home,  a seasoned buyer, or just starting to save for your first home, Your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make.

There are many things you need to do before you start looking for that dream home. You have many questions running through your head and don’t know where to start. It is important to do some research to give you the confidence to know that you are making the right decision.

Closing on your first home is exciting and is a very sunny day. What is a sunny day, you might be wondering. A sunny day is feeling confident, in control of, and optimistic about your money. I just closed on my first home and I want to help you know what you will need to do, to prepare for the process of purchasing a home.

6 Tips to Prepare You to Purchase a Home

 

Save towards a down payment

Start saving the sooner the better. You don’t need to save thousands of dollars a month to save towards a home. Whether you can save $200 or $1500 a month, the important thing is you are saving towards the purchase of a new home. The more of a down-payment you have, the less you will pay each month on a mortgage.

Know your Credit Score.

I can not stress this enough. There are plenty of free sites out there that will never charge you to get your credit score. Along with the three major credit reporting bureaus. Your credit score will determine whether you have poor and/or excellent credit. If your score is in the 500’s wait and build your credit before trying to purchase a home. If your credit score is in the mid 600’s to 850 you should have no problem getting a mortgage.

Determine what you can afford.

Take a good look at your finances and determine if your budget allows you to be able to pay for mortgage. Now remember to determine what you will be able to afford, you do not want to be house poor (where you literally can only cover the mortgage and no other expenses). Once you have determined your credit score and whether or not you are financially ready to buy a home you will need to see if you qualify for a mortgage. Also check out a mortgage calculator to give you a ball park figure as to what you can afford monthly.

What is the best mortgage for you?

Research whether you want a 30 year mortgage, a 15 year mortgage, and the current mortgage rates. A 30 year mortgage is the most popular option because it lowers your monthly payments. If you can afford a 15 year mortgage then consider it as a viable option. Are these mortgage rates good? 4-6 percent is a decent rate, but try to get the lowest rate possible. There are many mortgage options available. Research what type of loan you want to apply for and determine if 20 percent down is required for that particular loan. Some are no money down, so it is worth the effort to discover the best loan for yourself.

Get Pre-Approved for a mortgage

It is important to try to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will determine what kind of home you can afford to buy. Most importantly, it determines the price point at which you can begin to search for a home. Sellers will take your offer more seriously if they know you are pre-approved. Being pre-approved  is a time saver in the process of obtaining your home.

Determine the City and Neighborhood you want to live in

Location, location, location are the three most important rules in real estate. Research the type of neighborhood you want to live in. Answer these questions.

  • Does the neighborhood have good schools?
  • Is there a hospital nearby or is it located in a neighboring city?
  • What is the crime rate in the area you are interested in?
  • Most importantly, Does it meet your family’s needs?

5739-a-stormy-sky-over-a-small-town-pv

Once you have found the perfect place, the next step is to make an offer on your dream home and hope it is accepted by the seller. Once the offer is accepted, you will close on the house and officially become a homeowner. Congratulations you own a home. Closing on your home is a sunny day!

Save for a Sunny Day Wedding

Save for a Sunny Day Wedding

We all try to save for a rainy day. You never know when unexpected expenses may pop up. Why do we save for rainy days, when we can save for a Sunny Day Wedding. You may be wondering what is a Sunny Day? It is feeling optimistic, confident, and in control of your money. It’s when you turn a goal into reality.

Wedding season is still in full force with fall weddings. Weddings can be very expensive, whether you are planning your own wedding, participating in one, or attending a wedding as a guest, it can put a big strain on the budget. Unless you are fortunate enough to have an unlimited budget to pay for your wedding needs, you need to save in order to cover the cost.

The Sunny Days that I’ve been saving towards are all of the wedding gifts, travel expenses, and a few new outfits for the family to wear to the four weddings I’m attending this fall. Wedding gifts are expensive and like others I need to save money to purchase the high dollar registry items.

Wedding gift

The folks at Sun Trust bank have helped me save for the many wedding gifts that needed purchased. They can help you plan and save for your Sunny Day. With Sun Trust’s resource center you will find great advice, tips, and the tools you need to save for your sunny day.
