Homeowner to do's for February

By
Real Estate Agent with ERA Henley Real Estate

To-do's for homeowners in February:

*Remove drain traps under sinks and clean them thoroughly. Clean pop-up drain plugs. Inspect linkage for pop-up drains to be sure they're set properly. To adjust linkage, squeeze the finger-operated pressure lock to release it and slide it up or down as needed.

*Inspect grout and caulk around tubs, showers, and sinks. Chip out cracked group. Replace missing grout. Clean stained, discolored, or mildewed caulk with trisodium phosphate or other household cleaner. If the caulk is still discolored, remove it and replace it with fresh caulk that is mildew-resistant.

*Refinish furniture in a heated garage or workspace equipped with fans. Otherwise, use water-based strippers, paints, stains, and varnishes formulated for low odors.

*Musty closet odors can be reduced or eliminated by removing the closet's contents and washing walls with diluted chlorine bleach. Try replacing solid doors with louvered doors. If the mustiness is a result of moisture, find the source and correct it--otherwise, the problem will come back.

*Turn all water valves off and on to keep valves from sticking and to check for leaks. This includes outdoor faucets and valves to toilets, bathroom and kitchen sinks, laundry, bar, etc.

Happy homeowning!
