It is hard to fine time to fix whatever is broken around the house! Tim and I had a discussion about our first blog post and the topic. I asked him what mistakes people make in maintenance and repair tasks. And this is what he said (the title of the post).
First off, consider whether you actually can perform such a task? Yes, most of us can replace a lightbulb but I can not re-wire the whole house. You best know your skills and what you are capable of – if you aren’t comfortable doing a job, just call a professional.
Before you start a renovation did you check if you’re supplied with the proper tools? When doing such a job, it is crucial to have the exact instrument. Actually, 50% of the people call a handyman because of a lack of tools.
Consider your safety – if a job is too dangerous, don’t risk your own safety. It is easy to apply wallpaper or even repaint a room – you do not need professional help for these types of tasks. But make no mistake – for bigger electrical jobs it is better to leave it to the experts.
Doing jobs you’ve never done before but you’re sure you’ll complete them without an issue? If the project goes wrong, repairing it would be twice as expensive!
Do you have the time? What if you are capable of completing such an improvement but you can’t afford to spend much time doing it? If you can work only on the weekends, it would take you much more time to finish the task.
Hope this helped, guys! See you soon.
