To D.I.Y or Not?

What to D.I.Y

The holiday season can be a hectic time with lots of spending, and when it comes to your house doing projects yourself can save you money. Doing projects yourself also give you pride because you did it with your own two hands. But there are some projects that you just have to call the pros for. Here are three common projects that Neighborly, a community of home experts, drew the line for:

Safe to DIY
Call a Pro
Patching drywall: Homeowners can easily cover small, nail holes in their walls. Make sure the wall is clean, then spackle the hole and sand it down.
Too much spackle or hole too big: If a hole has been spackled before or is bigger than a nail hole, it is best to call in an expert.
Cleaning an AC unit: Cleaning is essential for healthy and efficient air conditioning systems. Check the filters and change them when necessary. This will ensure the air is clean in your home and your unit is working well.
Repairing or replacing any HVAC unit: HVAC units are technical and require specialized tools. They also use a large amount of voltage, therefore call the experts on this one.
Repairing plumbing hardware: Items like seals, chains or clogs can become faulty, these are easily replaced or fixed. Also, if the toilet feels wobbly or seat comes loose, DIY kits for these are available with the parts and tools needed to repair them.
Remodeling renovations with plumbing alterations: Here permits are often needed to move or expand plumbing. A professional is familiar with these local permits and codes. A plumber is best to ensure the connections are done properly and correct.

Keeping a Safe Home during the Holidays

Holiday Safety Tips

The holiday season can be a business time filled with many people and tasks, but don't neglect your home's safety. From decorations to holiday travel, here are some ways to keep your home safe for the holidays.
  • Use caution with holiday decorations. Try to choose those made with flame-resistant, flame-retardant and non-combustible materials.
  • Keep children and pets away from electrical cords, decorations, and outlets.
  • Check the wiring of your decorations. Insuring there is no fraying and the insulation is good.
  • Leave your lights on a timer at night. Especially if you are out of town. This makes the image that you are still at home and can prevent burglary. 
  • Make sure to keep any possible combustible or flammable decorations away from your Christmas tree.
  • Avoid trimmings that resemble candy or food, and that are sharp or small. These may tempt a young child to put them in his mouth.
  • Test smoke alarm at the beginning of the holiday season to make sure if anything were to happen everyone in your home would know.
  • Don't leave a kitchen unattended while entertaining. When cooking, make sure to keep an eye on the food. 
  • When lightening a fire place, be sure to clean the surrounding area. Keep flammable materials away from the fire, burning these could cause a flash fire.
  • Keep poinsettias well out of reach from kids and animals. These can be very poisonous for both humans and pets. 
  • Keep up with your home alarm system during the holidays, especially when traveling. This time of year is prime for many burglaries to occur while people are away from their homes. 
  • Do not put the boxes of big-ticket items in front of your house. This shows a burglar everything that is available in your home. 
  • When leaving your home, ask a trusted neighbor to keep watch for you. And never advertise your vacation plans to strangers.
The Mark Card Team hopes you have a safe holidays. If you are looking to make a move this time of year, you can contact us at or (386)566-8091.
