It’s been warm but oh-so rainy in the DC metro area –bug season! If mosquitoes are INDOORS as well as out, have you checked your screens?
What’s Bugging You?
Screens – the kind you find in windows and doors – are one of those innocuous home items that you don’t think about until you have to.
If you keep your windows open for fresh air and flying bugs have suddenly taken over your home, check your screens for wear and tear. Old screens get holes in them and need repair. Eventually they warp or fray, pulling away from the frame – then you need to replace the screens and fit new ones within the frame.
So, who does that type of work?
Who Do You Call for Screens?
If you ask around you might find a local, entrepreneurial small business recommended by a friend or neighbor. Or you could take an upcoming class at Home Depot to learn the steps of replacing screens (and learn how a spline tool helps).
Just remember that a 2800 square feet house has an average of 28 windows, according to EPA calculations. Do you really want to repair or replace that many window screens yourself?
It’s Not About the Screens
Window screens, of course, are only one example of the many small items in your home that need to be maintained. Changing HVAC filters, repairing or replacing caulking in bathrooms and kitchens, checking for cracks in drywall and foundation and diagnosing problems, fixing leaky faucets or toilets that “run” – the list goes on and on, as every homeowner knows!
