Home Repairs You Could Do On Your Own

>> Jun 27, 2017




DIY Projects are truly taking over the internet by storm. Besides taking the opportunity to showcase their craftsmanship skills and creating innovative and unique items for everyone’s convenience, DIY projects are also a great way to make a profit as many turn to the internet as an agent for selling their crafts online. Also, DIY projects are a great outlet for those who wish to brainstorm for new ideas and unique creations.

Another thing about DIY projects is not only the fact that you can elect to sell your work online, they help you save a lot of money as well. Even in the comfort of your own home, things around you can still break or malfunction to some degree. Instead of spending money on repairmen, why not repair them yourself? It may be a bit difficult at times, but once you get the hang of it, there’s nothing in your home that you can’t fix.

If you’re wondering of any home repairs you can do on your own, here are some of them:

1.   Unclogging Drains


This is the most common of all home repairs. This is actually so easy that you actually only need one tool: a plunger.

Numerous times throughout the day, the bathroom becomes a private retreat for many. It’s the one place in your home that you can be alone with your thoughts and take care of personal business, all at the same time. When clogging happens, though, it causes a huge amount of inconvenience to anyone living in the house.

For this, as mentioned before, a plunger is all you’ll need. Just direct the suction cup of the plunger to the drain that needs to be unclogged and just keep pumping until you hear the sweet sound of a flush. Also, in case this doesn’t work, you’d be surprised in how much help baking soda and warm water can give you.

2.   Patching Up Leaks


Another common form of DIY repairs that you could do on your own. If you thought clogged drains are a pain, there’s nothing like the inconvenience of a leaking pipe.

When pipes leak, a lot of things can happen. Your floor may be filled with water, causing it to become slippery and can also lead to numerous accidents. This is especially during the rainy season, in which leaks can spread to all parts of your home.

For this, just grab a can of sealant and place it on the spot where the leak protrudes from. If ever you’re using anything other than sealant (i.e Duct Tape), make sure that they are wrapped tight around the leak in order to avoid any more water dripping out of it.

3.   Replacing a Light Switch


Your home needs all the light it can get to give it that cozy glow. Whether it be natural or electrical, light is an essential element to every home in the world.

When your light bulbs burn out, it can be a bit inconvenient for you, especially during the night. Luckily for you, they’re pretty easy to replace. Just twist the bulb to the left and pull it out. You may want to be careful though as leaving the electricity on while you do this can be disastrous on your end. Also, make sure to never drop them. You wouldn’t want broken glass littered around your floor.
