Every now and then, homeowners are bound to run into problems within the household. Whether you’re in a new home or an old building, there are plenty of common issues that can arise. Whether it’s getting rid of pests or preventing low water pressure with a home booster water pump, here’s some common household problems and what you can do to avoid them.
Damp is not only inconvenient but can also be a serious concern in the home, affecting health and indicating structural issues. The best way to avoid damp is to prevent it as much as possible. Ensure the home is well ventilated, avoid producing excessive moisture, and minimise condensation. Doing small things like using a lid on pans when cooking and buying a dehumidifier can help avoid damp in the future.
Low water pressure
Drizzling taps, slow showers — we all know how much of a nuisance they can be. A lot of the time low water pressure is down to poor water mains and systems, which is why installing a home booster water pump is the best solution. Booster pumps work by providing adequate water flow to showers and taps in the home, meaning you’ll never have to deal with those bothersome morning showers. Here at Complete Pump Supplies, you’re sure to find the perfect home booster for you with our wide selection.
Nobody wants insects or vermin in the home, but unfortunately this is the reality for those who don’t take the right measures. The simplest way to prevent this is to keep your home as clean as possible. Stay on top of all cleaning maintenance, including dusting and hoovering, and always take out rubbish promptly. Other things you can do are inspect walls for holes and cracks, and fix any leaking pipes as this can attract a variety of pests.
Draughty rooms are a common issue a lot of people face in their property, but there’s some easy DIY hacks that can help avoid this. Weatherstripping is a simple and inexpensive solution to draughty doors and windows. If the draft is coming from somewhere other than a window or door, such as between floorboards or around electrical fittings, you can block these off but must be careful doing so in rooms that need adequate ventilation due to humidity, such as the kitchen or bathroom.
A bit of dust is expected now and then. However, if you’re finding yourself cleaning only to see more dust particles form soon after, that’s when it becomes an issue. To prevent excessive dust, consider switching slatted blinds for washable curtains which are easier to clean, and placing an air purifier near the window to trap dust and air contaminants as they enter the room. You should also be conscious of whether or not your air purifier and vacuum cleaner contain a HEPA filter which helps trap molecules.
