The Most Common Home Repairs and How to Tackle Them with Giddens Property Service


Hey there, Rockford homeowners! ๐Ÿก We all know that home repairs are a part of life, but don't worry - we've got your back! In this fun and friendly blog post, we'll be sharing some of the most common home repairs and how to tackle them. But remember, if you're ever in doubt or need a professional's help, Giddens Property Service is just a phone call away. Let's dive in!

  1. Leaky Faucets ๐Ÿšฐ Drip, drip, drip... Leaky faucets are annoying and wasteful, but they're also one of the most common home repairs. Before you attempt a DIY fix, make sure to turn off the water supply to the faucet. Then, you can disassemble the faucet to identify the issue and replace any worn-out parts. However, if you're unsure about handling this repair on your own, give Giddens Property Service a call, and we'll have it fixed in no time.

  2. Clogged Drains ๐Ÿ› Clogged drains can be a messy problem, but they're usually pretty easy to fix. Start by using a plunger or a drain snake to remove any blockages. If that doesn't work, you might need to disassemble the trap under the sink to clean it out. For more stubborn clogs, Giddens Property Service is here to help with our professional drain cleaning services.

  3. Patching Drywall ๐Ÿชต From accidental bumps to adventurous kids, drywall damage is inevitable. To fix a small hole, simply apply a patching compound with a putty knife, let it dry, sand it smooth, and paint over it. For larger holes, you may need to install a patch and then apply the compound. If you're not confident in your drywall repair skills, our team at Giddens Property Service would be happy to lend a hand.

  4. Sticky Doors ๐Ÿšช Doors that stick can be a real nuisance, but they're usually easy to fix. First, try tightening the hinges with a screwdriver. If that doesn't work, you may need to sand down the door or adjust the door frame. If you're unsure how to proceed or worried about damaging your door, Giddens Property Service is here to help!

  5. Replacing Light Fixtures ๐Ÿ’ก Swapping out a light fixture can be a quick way to refresh your home's look. To start, turn off the power at the breaker box. Next, unscrew the old fixture, disconnect the wires, and carefully attach the new fixture. If you're not comfortable working with electricity or need help installing a more complex light fixture, Giddens Property Service is just a call away.
