Quick Tip!Have you checked your
TAPS lately?

Check Your Taps!

This pretty-colored “beauty” speaks for itself! It had been leaking so long onto the water heater (without being noticed or repaired) that the metal cabinet had rusted through. Consequently, the otherwise “good” water heater had to be replaced, far ahead of its normal service life end.

Check all of your supply shut-offs and supply/drain piping (look inside all sink cabinets). Check the hot/cold supplies to the clothes washer and connections to the water heater for leaks/drips. Also, in case you still haven’t shut-off outside hose-bibs (assuming they’re not frost-free) ensure you do – before it is too late!

Also, don’t forget to turn back-on your outside hose-bibs (garden faucets), as we welcome Spring.  Double-check for leaks – don’t just assume all is OK – until you have visibly verified all is nice and dry as it should be.

Toxic Carpet Welcome to “Love Your Home”

Thanks to everyone who responded to last month’s feature article on ASBESTOS. I’m so very pleased to help educate and build awareness of home hazards which can affect your health and well-being.This month, we turn our attention to the hazards of carpeting. Many people assume that because a product is on the market that it’s perfectly safe. This is not the case! Carpet is now known to be ultra-toxic, so don’t be fooled by its innocent appearance, check this month’s feature.
