Don’t do these 3 DIY tasks
Many people enjoy DIY (Do It Yourself) tasks around the house, and with today’s easy-access to a vast array of information, these DIY tasks are often fun and rewarding. However, there are certain things that are and forever will be best left to the professionals. For the safety of you, your home, and your wallet, don’t try doing these three things on your own:
Electrical DIY Task
You may be able to replace a lightbulb, but any electrical work beyond that is something you should leave to an electrician. Electricity can be a very dangerous thing when not properly handled. Your home is full of wiring and electrical panels that at times will require maintenance or repair. Don’t try fixing them yourself. You are better off calling a professional for this job.
Plumbing DIY Task
Plumbing work is very high-risk. One wrong move and you could cause serious damage to your home. If you want to save money and a headache, call a plumber for any work that would require turning off the water or disconnecting any pipes.
Carpet Cleaning DIY Task
Your carpets are constantly gathering dirt, allergens, and bacteria. Cleaning your carpets is something you should do regularly (most recommend having carpets cleaned 2-3 times per year), but not something you should do on your own!
Those who clean their carpets by themselves usually end up renting a steam cleaning machine. This method, however, is hardly effective at cleaning the carpets. You’ve probably noticed this before. Here are a few reasons why calling a professional carpet cleaner is the better choice.
Steam cleaners use lots of water and soap to clean the carpet. The problem is that your carpet gets left with just that – lots of water and soapy residue. It usually takes 1-2 days for the excess moisture to dry, which can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. And all that extra soap lying around will attract more dirt and make removing stains even harder. Not only is professional cleaning more effective, it is a safer method.
