Now, perhaps your experience with squeaky door hinges wasn’t so, horror flic. The fact remains however, that you have noticed squeaky hinges in your house. What should you do? There are a million and two results on the internet for different things to try. Here is what you should try first: WD40.

If there are only two things in your tool box the first thing should be duct tape and the second should be WD40. Made with a special combination of oils, WD40 can listen and smooth out just about anything that should turn. The spray can be used on door hinges, knbs that get stuck, noisy joints and hinges throughout the house.

To specifically fix doorhynges, it is rather simple. All you will want is an old rag or paper towel and the spray.

  1. Hold the cloth under the hynge you are about to spray so that it will catch any runoff.

  2. The next step, is simply to spray.

  3. You may have to open and close the door a few times to get it worked into the joints.

  4. If it is still squeaking you may need to spray again and continue to work in the oil.

  5. Vola, peace and quiet.

This simply DIY is sure to impress everyone in the house. You’ve never experienced true peace and quiet until even your doors are silent. You deserve all the peace you can get.

Toilet Water Shut Off

 

It is an unfortunate fact, and an inconvenient truth, that water overflows. Often times water overflow is a simple problem to fix like trying to turn off the water or unplugging a drain. Unfortunately, there are times where our simple fixes will not do the job.

    You can find yourself at home, minding your own business, when watery tragedy strikes. As you hear the toilet begin to overflow, you try your tried and true method of flushing again, to no avail. You know that you must shut off the water. But how? Well lucky for you, we have the answer.

How to Turn Off the Water For The Toilet

 

  1. Have you ever wondered what that pipe on the back of your toilet is? Well it is the water shut off valve. It is a pretty self explanatory term. In order to turn off the water you must identify where your water shut off valve is.

  2. On the valve there is a handy handle. This handle will allow you to utilize the water shut off feature of your toilet.

  3. All you have to do is turn the handle. And just like that, you are the bathroom hero! If the handle is stuck you could try some handy WD40 or in a pinch, some vegetable oil.

    Congratulations! You saved the day!

Is your dryer having a hard time drying lately? Do you clean out the lint trap and still see lint sticking to it? What can you do? Here are three steps to help your dryer dry better and help your lint trap stay cleaner.

  1. Washing The Trap: Sometimes just clearing out the lint trap isn’t enough. There is a lot of lint that gets stuck. By running the trap under the water in either the sink or tub, it will help clean the trap better. If you want to go the extra mile, you could use some of the clothing soap to help clean it.

  2. Vacuum the catch: The lint trap sits in the catch and can sometimes get dirty. The best way to clean out the stray lint is to vacuum it out. If your vacuum can’t get in the small area try taking a cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels.

  3. Clean the Vent: It may be time to clean out the dryer vent duct on the back of the dryer. You won’t want to do this all the time because it takes more work. You will have to move the dryer away from the wall and then brush out the lint in the vent.

With these steps you’ll have your dryer operating at 100%! If your dryer is still having trouble seek out a professional. If you are part of the Realty Masters family, contact your property manager today.
