  • Coating a Glossy Paint on Non-Smoothed Surfaces

Are glossy painted walls your favourites? If you are ready with a bucket of glossy paint, paintbrush before a wall, then halt. Glossy paint looks good over a smooth wall so that it can reflect back the light evenly to make you feel its gloss.

  • Keeping Faulty Home Appliances

Most of the home appliances run on electricity and if you stick to the appliances for very long, then it can wear and tear someday. Look, they would certainly break down one day, inevitably.

However, you can avail repair services, if you think that the appliance can serve you some more years. In case, the appliance has already crossed its life expectancy, then it will be a wise decision to replace the appliance and not to fix it.

  • Letting Dirt Accumulate on Refrigerator Coils

Refrigerator coils play an important role to keep the stored food in good condition, as well as maintaining the surrounding temperature. However, if dust and debris accumulate on the refrigerator coils, then the heat releasing procedure can be blocked. 

For instance, it’s very common for a refrigerator coil to get in contact with hair, especially from pets, cobwebs and other debris. And, when all these blocks the heat releasing actions of the coil, it starts to draw more power to work efficiently. In return for this, the compressor has to work harder and the life expectancy of the fridge eventually decreases. 

So, grab a vacuum cleaner and a coil cleaning brush to clean the refrigerator coils. Frequent coil cleaning is necessary for the right performance metrics of your refrigerator.

  • Not Draining Mineral Sediment from Water Geysers

Water heaters or geysers are meant to serve more or less ten years in a row. If the water heater isn’t working or supplying enough hot water, then you might call a plumber to fix the issue. While draining the water with sediment, it can solve the issue for you. What you have to do is drain all the water from your geyser, along with the sediment built-up at the bottom of the appliance. You should practise this once a year.

The sediment can harm the water heater and its coil. Gradually, it can affect the efficiency of the water heater and the longevity of the device gets worse. So, avail handyman service Dubai from Dubai Fixing to repair water heaters. 

  • Not Cleaning Dryer Vents

Dryer vents can get clogged due to dust, debris and especially for lint. You would be surprised to know that such clogged dryer vents can catch fire. Moreover, if the dryers are placed in between of your home then the ducts are generally longer. And longer ducts make sure more dust can enter the vent. 

Aside from lint and dirt, bird nests can also cause the plugging issue. However, in case you feel that the dryer is taking more time to dry up the clothes, with a pungent smell, then this is the sign. You need to remove the vent which is situated at the back of the dryer. Next, you have to clean the vent. If you are having difficulties with reaching the accumulated substances over there, then you can use a flexible brush or vacuum cleaning equipment. This will save you from disaster, as well as huge electricity bills.

  • Not Cleaning Gutters

Mostly, gutters get dirty and clogged due to leaves, birds’ nests, twigs and obviously because of storms. Make sure that you clean the gutters at least twice a year. And, when you are up there you can also check the condition of the roof. Maybe, it requires effective handyman services.

  • Collapsing a Wall

Are you trying to renovate your home on your own? That sounds fine until you decide to knock down a wall. Yes, it’s true that open spaces look subtle but collapsing a load-bearing wall can harm the base of your house.
