Feel free to send me a question, I might be able to provide you a quick answer.
Q: My toilet won't stop running, what do I do?
A: The flapper valve probably needs to be replaced.
Q: My three way light switch doesn't work.
A: That's not a question, but the common wire is probably in the wrong place.
Q: My dishwasher is not properly cleaning my dishes.
A: Make sure the water at your kitchen faucet is hot before you start your dishwasher. This will help the detergent to dissolve. Try running a cycle with 2 cups of vinegar. This will clean the lime build up in the machine.
If you are a little mechanically inclined, you can remove the spray arms and clean them out with a toothpick and running water. Otherwise, please call us at the number below and we would be happy to help you.
Q: Water pressure is very low in my faucet or shower.
A: The shower head or aerator may be clogged. You can remove them and soak them in vinegar for 15-30 minutes then rinse them thoroughly.
Q: Why does my bathroom sink smell and how can I get rid of it?
A: Your sink drain can collect pieces of hair and skin that grow bacteria and emits a bad odor.
The first step to correcting this is to flush the drain with an overnight drain cleaner. If this doesn't work, try removing the stopper assembly from behind the main drain pipe under your counter and roemoving any hair stuck to the stopper assembly rod. While your stopper is removed from the drain pipe, try cleaning the inside of the drain pipe with a stiff pipe brush.
Last, there could be an excess amount of plumber's putty from the drain opening in the overflow drain connection to main drain pipe. This requires the drain assembly to be disassembled, thouroughly cleaned and put back together. Please call us if you need help.
Q: What maintenance can I perform on my house to keep it in good condition?
