Quick Home Fixes

Some things in the home remain broke for ages as people don’t believe they’re an easy fix.  But there are actually so many things within the home that are so easy to fix, with such a little cost involved.  But why do we leave the things that need fixing for so long?  Because we’re just so busy to even try and do them!

Sometimes the days just pass us by without even realising, and before you know it the list of things that needs fixing just seems to pile up and up.  So, if you feel as though your fix list is mounting up, here are some quick home fixes and how you can do them… or not in some cases!



Exterior Problems

Not all things going wrong in the home have to actually be inside the home.  Things happening on the outside can cause just as many problems for us!  The first that we need to talk about is one that can affect your home inside as well.

 Aerials have the potential to break so easily as they’re exposed to the elements all the time.  Not only this, but they also age over time like any electrically involved item.  If this happens to you, you might benefit from talking to experts such as Aerial Force to try and get the problem solved.  If the aerial is broken, the TV’s inside could all go down as well.  Now, we’re sure you can all admit that the TV’s of the home are some of the most important items, they’re what help to keep some families sane!  The quicker the fix, the happier the house.

Secondly, problems with the guttering can cause a nightmare, but it’s so easy for it to happen.  All it takes is a build up of leaves and dirt, and before you know it you’re clogged up.  But all it takes is an hour or so up the ladder to unclog it and water can flow freely.

Decor Disasters

It’s easy to think you’ve done a good DIY decor job.  But after a little while, you might come to realise you’ve created a decor disaster.  The main area that people go wrong with is wallpapering. 

A relatively easy art to master, but to some, it’s hard to grasp in the first place.  The end result is wallpaper that begins to peel away or one that has a tonne of bubbles in it.  All you need to do is strip the walls and start fresh.  Make sure you’re sanding everything down on the wall fully.  Then apply a light layer of wallpaper paste onto the paper first.  Gently apply the wallpaper to the wall, making sure you’re completely smoothing it out before going onto the next strip of paper.

There are more detailed guides that you can follow, such as this one here, that’ll mean you do the most perfect and long lasting job.  No one likes to look at nasty wallpaper, so make yours look lovely again!

So there we go, a few quick fixes that you might need to implement in and around your home.
