Increasing the Value of Your Home Through Flooring

Your floors are an often overlooked but very important part of your home. Dirty, tattered, outdated or ugly floors can make your home look far less attractive and valuable than it may be. In contrast, beautiful and well kept floors give your home a special sparkle. It is especially important to pay attention to your flooring if you are thinking about selling your home. By installing clean and beautiful new floors, you can increase the value of your home far more than the cost of your flooring. My background as a real estate agent has taught me what potential buyers want in floors, and now I'm going to teach you. Make your home all it can be with floors that say your home is the best.

Prevent A Clog: Guide To Keep Hair Out Of Your Drains

Isabella Bennett

The average person loses around 100 strands of hair a day, and this average does not include those whose hair may be thinning for any number of reasons. You should also know that hair is very strong and does not dissolve easily, which makes it a real danger for your drains. The following guide will help you prevent hair clogs through natural or simple means.

Catch The Hair Before It Clogs Your Drain

The simplest things you can do is simply wear a shower cap, and wash your hair in a bucket. But that might not be too convenient. You can also make sure you place a drain guard wherever you wash your hair, whether in your tub or sink.

The trouble with drain guards is that some hair strands will still make it down your drain from time to time.

Make Sure You Don't Have Hard Water

The next thing you can do is make sure your water is not hard, which means that your water is filled with metals and other foreign substances. The reason you do not want hard water is because this makes it harder to clean your hair, as the mineral content does not allow your shampoo to work correctly. You might also notice your hair breaking easier or feeling drier than normal. This hair breakage can lead to more hair strands down your drain.

The following are signs of hard water:

  • Stains or fogginess on glassware
  • Frequent plumbing issues, like slow drains
  • Dry or itchy skin when using water
  • Faded or slightly discolored clothes after washing

Be sure to talk to your plumbing specialist about your hard water suspicions, as he or she can test it and help you deal with it.

Keep Your Hair On Your Scalp

You can also start using lavender oil to prevent hair loss. Studies have shown that lavender oil helps stimulate your hair follicles, which helps regrow hair and prevent any loss.

Follow the steps below to make your preventative hair spritz:

  1. Fill a spray bottle with 2 cups of purified water.
  2. Add 5 drops of lavender oil, which you can get from your local health food store.
  3. Spray it on your hair, concentrating on your scalp whenever you wash your hair.

As you can see, there are a few things you can do to keep your hair from clogging up your drains, which can be costly to deal with. For professional help, contact a service like Blount's Speedy Rooter.
