Fixing pesky leaks can do wonders for a household. The average household’s leaks account for more than 10,000 gallons of wasted water every year, roughly the amount needed to wash 270 laundry loads. The leaks in the average house are everywhere too. Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons of water a day or more and toilets account for 25 to 30 percent of household water use.

To reduce water waste and to optimize a household plumbing system, drain cleaning is important. Drains may get clogged with debris over time and can lead to a wide range of problems including flooding, leaking and smells.

To say that the flooring needs updating in your house would be an understatement. In fact, the flooring problems in your home are getting to the point where they are detracting from the value of your home. Unfortunately, it has been a number of years before you have had the finances to make any updates or improvements. Now that you have the majority of credit card debts taken care of, however, you are now able to tackle the flooring problems. The plan is to start with refinishing the wood floor in the kitchen and when that project is completed you will replace the carpeting throughout the house. The final project will be replacing the linoleum floor in the shared bathroom between your daughters’ separate bedrooms.

When it comes to selecting fertilizer for root growth, there are several options. Some plants need an extra boost to establish roots and some need a more solidified structure for root growth. Consider these options when choosing a fertilizer for root growth:

  • Go Natural: Having a natural source of potassium or phosphorous is good for root growth. They release nutrients gradually which helps encourage root development for a period of time, usually a few weeks.
