Trying to keep your home looking in tip-top shape is no mean feat. But it becomes much easier when you have the pick of tools to make light work of what’s necessary for its upkeep.
Here are 4 useful tools to help you speed through home tasks and have more of the weekend to relax.
A pressure washer is not just for the drive-thru auto wash service. It’s also something that you can get at home and use for various tasks.
Pressure washing can strip the mud off tires, the underside of the vehicle, and give it a good rinse all over. But it’s also useful to clean the exterior walls ahead of repainting them or to quickly remove debris lying on the patio or driveway too.
They’re quite versatile, so you’ll find many uses for one once you have it in your arsenal.
Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Needing to run a vacuum cleaner over the floors is one more chore to catch up with on the weekend.
Depending on the house, it can take a while to do so. So, if you can make light work of one task on the ‘Honey-Do’ list, then all for the better. One way to do that is with a robotic vacuum cleaner.
These little devices are rechargeable, run autonomously under battery power, and can clean the floor while you’re at work. That way, other occupants won’t be tripping over the vacuum cleaner cable like normal or get upset about the noise while they’re trying to have some quiet time.
While the little robot will need lifting into position on occasion, it can do almost everything itself. So, that’s one less job.
An edge trimmer (they go by various names) is a great little tool to fix up the sides of the lawn that are tough to get looking straight.
Without owning one, the lawn may look well-kept, but you’ll be wincing at how the edges all around the lawn appear unkempt. Also, if you fancy having a bit of landscape gardening with differently shaped areas, then it’ll come in particularly handy to keep irregular sections of the lawn looking trim.
Whole House Water Filtration
Filling up the water jug to get some filtered water is fine for one person. But when it’s a multi-occupant household, there’s not always enough water for everyone when they want it.
A whole house filtration system filters the incoming water supply before it ever reaches the faucets. It then filters the H2O for impurities which could either be from the water supply or the water pipes between the water facility and your home. The filtered water is then made available throughout. That way, as long as the filters are replaced on time, you never have to refill another filtering water bottle ever again.
It takes time to build up the tools that make life easier on the home front. Doing so over a couple of years is much easier and it makes weekends less burdensome when you do.
