Fall Maintenance

Fall Maintenance

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year when the mall is emptied by all the kids who have been hanging out there all summer.  The time when the end of summer fires start to die down.  The time when it is finally tolerable to be outdoors for longer than a few minutes at a time.  Fall is here.  

 

Home Decorating With A Nautical Theme

Home Decorating With A Nautical Theme

For centuries now, images of the high seas and the wealth of treasures that they contain have graced the dens and living rooms of countless homes.  There is just something that is very calming and relaxing about looking at a beautiful seascape.  The popularity of nautical decor has been growing through the years, with many stores now specializing in providing unique nautical-themed merchandise to their customers.

Is a Waterbed Conditioner that Important?

Is a Waterbed Conditioner that Important?

Unlike ordinary beds, waterbeds usually require various types of accessories like heaters, waterbed conditioner, pumps, cleaners, massagers, rail caps, patch kits, mattresses and other embellishments that are specifically made for these types of bed.  Due to the nature of their design these beds require special attention especially when it comes to the maintenance and preservation of the bed.  A waterbed needs to be drained from time to time using special faucet and drain kits.  The mattresses can also become intolerably cold especially during the winter or rainy season.  Thus, most owners invest in a mattress heater to keep their beds warm or at just the right temperature.

Treat Your Family to the Luxury of a Swimming Pool

Treat Your Family to the Luxury of a Swimming Pool

Fridays have this uncanny ability to make me feel sleepy and lethargic.  But the reason why I am feeling very sleepy (it’s a Friday) and not to mention lethargic is because I did not sleep properly last night.  This is slowly becoming a routine, not getting to sleep properly at night.  My friend is a doctor, so I had a talk with him about this, and he says that I am not the only one facing this insomnia problem and this is turning out to be rampant.  Swimming pools are one means that I can try out for inducing relaxing sleep at night, he said.  Now I was stumped, swimming pool and sleep what connection is there?  Apparently there was a medical study conducted by doctors and it was found that sitting in hot tubs and swimming pools at the end of tiring day can induce sound sleep.

 

Why Let Your Kitchen or Bathroom Grow Any Older?

Why Let Your Kitchen or Bathroom Grow Any Older?

Perhaps you’ve lived in your home for five, 10, 15 or even 30 years.  You are standing in your kitchen and could imagine all these wonderful possibilities.  You see a bigger kitchen with brand new cabinets and countertops, an island, a bar area and even dream of the little things that could make life easier: a lazy Susan, deeper drawers and pull-out shelves.  You may long for a kitchen where you can have more space for cooking and storing or a little more space that is just your own.  A kitchen is not just a kitchen.  It is an area for visiting, laughing and spending time with your family.  It is a coffee house, small restaurant, meeting place, a place for homework and midnight snacks. 

Maximizing the Effectiveness of a Home Security Alarm

Maximizing the Effectiveness of a Home Security Alarm

Protecting your home with a home security system which includes cameras and on-site security guards is extremely costly, and usually beyond the means of most homeowners.  But given the price you might have to pay in stolen or destroyed property, or harm to you and your family if you are unlucky enough to be the victims of a home invasion, there are very few things which will offer you a greater payoff than an investment in a home security alarm.

Tame the Heat with an Investment in Plantation Shutters

Tame the Heat with an Investment in Plantation Shutters

As the temperature rises in Santa Clarita and electric bills soar, the need for energy efficiency is more pronounced.  In addition, at a time when the housing market seems to be slowing, with people staying in their homes longer, more people are making home improvements.  It is good to know that there is a window treatment that addresses both these needs.  That treatment is plantation shutters.  

Maintaining Exteriors

Maintaining Exteriors

Just like your car, the exterior of your home is vulnerable to the effects of the outdoors; dirt, dust and pollution.  Every type of siding and trim, such as stucco, concrete block, asbestos shingle, wood clapboard/shake, aluminum and vinyl, is susceptible and will gather dirt and dust over time.  In more humid areas, exterior siding and trim are vulnerable to mold and mildew.  The combination of dirt and mildew is not only unattractive, but will prove to be more costly to refurbish.  Mildew especially weakens paint and will lead to the necessity of premature painting.  Mildew can also cause wood rot and masonry to weaken and crumble.
