Green Spring Cleaning Recipe for the Grout

Green Spring Cleaning Recipe for the Grout 

Does the tile and grout in your Florida home need a good cleaning? here’s a great recipe for cleaning the grout:

7 cups water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup vinegar – throw in a spray bottle and spray your floor, let it sit for a minute or two… then scrub 🙂

Kitchen Tip

Kitchen Tip for SW Florida Homeowners:
Choose a surface that matches your lifestyle. If you decide to replace surfaces, remember that some materials make upkeep easier, important if you have kids at home or do a lot of cooking. Granite and quartz are top performers in our countertop Ratings, but granite needs periodic resealing. Don’t rule out laminate, which is much better than stone at resisting impact. If you’re heart set on marble, just know that it’s going to stain and scratch over time unless you’re obsessive about protecting it.

Tip of the day: Get Knobby

Get Knobby:
There are a lot of suggestions for great ways to update the kitchen on a budget, but to name one project that makes every top-five list, it would be changing out the door and drawer pulls and other decorative hardware. It’s a small, almost purely cosmetic alteration that won’t take more than an hour to do, but adding decorative knobs is surprisingly eye-catching, and a good way to help visually unify and update the kitchen.

Stained Tub?

Stained Tub? Combine equal amounts of cream of tartar and baking soda with enough lemon juice to make a paste. Rub the mixture into the stain with your fingers or a soft cloth. Let sit for a half hour, then rinse well with water.

Tip of the day: Transform The Space In Your Home

Extra space is a big asset but knowing how to utilize it takes some thought and planning. A few small adjustments can go a long way. For example, transform a plain wall into a storage and display showcase just by adding open shelves or by creating a recessed niche. Adding a display shelf above the kitchen window can give the room an entirely new look and make room where the items used to be stored. Additionally, if you have the time and resources, invest in a room addition such as a sunroom, den or deck.

Florida Home Maintenance Tip – cleaning gutters

If you have a paint roller that’s too dirty to use anymore, use it to clean the gutters on your house. Using an extended handle, slide it along the gutter to remove the debris and leaves.

Home Improvement Tip From SWF Home Inspections – saving costs on custom tile installation

If there’s a custom tile that you love but your budget won’t allow you to cover the entire bathroom with it, use it as an accent tile and purchase lower-cost field tiles. You’ll save money and still get the look you want.

Home inspection tips: Testing for correct water pressure

To test for correct water pressure you can quickly attach a water-pressure test gauge to an outside sillcock or faucet, turn on the faucet and read the pounds per square inch you have in your home. Normal operating water pressure should be around 45 psi – 75 psi. Anything over 80 psi is considered too high by most building codes.
