Refrigerator Replacement

Leaking toilet with the broken flushing system, clogged pipes and wobbling seat shouldn’t remain in your house for too long, especially if you take into consideration the number of times you use it every single day.

It’s not only the matter of your personal comfort (even though one has to feel comfy while scrolling through the Instagram and sitting in the bathroom) but also of the house safety and water efficiency. Old faulty toilets may break down and flood your house with you know what any moment. Besides, they use twice the amount of water their newer alternatives do per a single flush. Thus, they deteriorate your water efficiency and add unnecessary dollars to your water bill.

But, when you understand that the toilet replacement is inevitable, you need to approach toilet shopping quite seriously and not to get fooled by the exclusive shop offers and high prices, which do not always stand for the top quality. These tips will walk you through the shopping process and prepare you to choose the most comfortable and qualitative pedestal within a reasonable budget.

After you do so, make sure to hire an experienced plumber to get your brand new ceramic throne installed professionally, as the high quality of the toilet installation directly influences its lifespan and minimizes the breakdowns and pipe issues.

10 tips to buy the best toilet for your bathroom

  1. It’s all about the flush. Powerful flush is one of the key points you should pay attention to when determining the quality of a toilet, as it ensures the clean finish and effective water use. As the production standards require manufacturers to reduce the amount of water the toilets release for a single flush, it’s the power of the flush that does most of the removal job. Shop for a toilet at the bathroom centers, where they have a bunch of pedestals installed, and conduct a flush test. You may also check out toilet reviews on Consumerreports.org to see how other consumers like certain types and models of modern toilets.
  2. Opt for the pressure-assisted models for better water efficiency, more waste removal power and  toilet tank drip+sweat control, but stick to the gravity-feed ones if you don’t like noisy flushes. Consider buying a dual-flush toilet to be able to control the amount of flushed water depending on your needs and improve your water efficiency even more. 
  3. Be aware of the sizes. While standard toilets are made to fit into the standard 12-inch gap between the wall and the toilet outlet, you may also find 10-14-inch options to meet different bathroom dimensions. Thus, you need to measure that distance to be able to get the toilet that fits into the space available at your bathroom.
  4. Don’t be shy to do the sit test. If you find a high-quality appliance, you’ll be stuck with it for 10 years or more. So, make sure to get the one you find really comfortable to sit on. And, it’s not only the shape of the seat that might influence your choice. Most people note, that higher pedestals (17-19-inch tall bowls instead of standard 15-inch ones) are a lot more comfortable to use. They’re not just easier to get on and get off. They’re also better for our backs and knees. However, additional height causes additional costs. And, you might want to stick to the standard height if you’re choosing a toilet for the kids’ bathroom.
  5. Get educated about the prices. You should be comfortable anywhere from $300-700. Toilets that cost less than won’t surprise you with proper quality and durability, even if the manufacturer and the seller try to prove that wrong. If you can afford the more expensive toilet, go ahead and by one, but I don’t think that you should overstep your budget for ‘special additional features’ those high-end toilets have. It’s just a toilet, right?
  6. If you need a compact appliance, stick to the round shape of its bowl. But, bear in mind that you might find it less comfortable than the elongated one.
  7. Opt for the braided and flexible stainless steel water supply lines to minimize the leaks and repairs. Don’t forget about the individual shut-off valve to be able to cut off your toilet’s water connection when you need to stop it from flooding the house without leaving the rest of your home with no water.
  8. Don’t get one-piece or wall-hung pedestals unless you plan to hire a professional plumber who’s qualified enough to conduct all necessary plumbing system remodels (for the wall-hung one) and install those types of toilets safely. Don’t attempt lifting and installing one-piece bowls on your own, as they’re too heavy for one unprofessional person to handle.
  9. Pick the color carefully. Latest bathroom design trends might persuade you to buy a boldly-colored toilet. However, you need to take into consideration the fact that some colors don’t age as well as others do. That applies both to the functional and design side of the issue. Traditional white or black thrones won’t let you down, though.
  10. If you want a cushioned seat for your pedestal, be ready to change it quite often, as it will crack and get ruined pretty fast.

Home Cleaning Can be Easy!

Domestic housework doesn't fit in the category for the most pleasant chores an urban housewife or man can do at home. Most homeowners and tenants surely find chores like household cleaning highly unlikely to be enjoyable and of course that’s absolutely normal. After all, that’s why we have professional cleaners companies, i.e. the fantastic cleaners and etc. If you would rather clean your home by yourself, here I am sharing some easy-to-follow tips and ideas on how to handle six common highly annoying household chores, that would otherwise require professional help.

Domestic Chore No 1 – Cleaning Bug Dirt Off Lamps

Why homeowners and tenants hate it:

When lamps turn hot, it gets sticky and bugs can't really escape such a trap. Bug dirt piles up on the surface and that makes it incredibly hard to clean, especially if you have to do an end of tenancy cleaning. Although the heaps of bugs are not dangerous for your health, they are the definition of an unpleasant domestic chore to scrub and take care of.

What to do:

  • Turn off lamps - mandatory!
  • Get a steady ladder (if your dirty lighting is too high).
  • Remove all lampshades.
  • Rinse with water and dry as good as possible.
  • Use a soft rug to wipe each light bulb.
  • If you feel you have to clean those via soaking, leave the lampshades in the water for a bit longer so grime can fall off.
  • If there is a lot of dirt, prepare a brush to fully clean.
  • Dry the freshly cleaned lampshades and carefully put them back.
  • Turn on electricity and voilà – no dimmed lights!

Household Chore No 2 – Emptying the Vacuum Cleaner Bag

Why people hate it:

Usually, when the dirt bag is half full, vacuums cleaner are not fully efficient and large pieces of dirt are unlikely to be sucked at all. The more dirt, the harder the appliance will work. If not emptied on time, the bag can cause for the motor to break down and thus you end up with an even bigger mess.

What to do:

  • Turn on the cleaner for a while, so all the dirt inside the appliance can settle in the bag.
  • Plug off. If you have a vacuum cleaner with a one-time bag, make a duct tape “bridge”, so all gathered filth stays “in”.
  • If you use standard bags, it's best to first go outside, on a terrace, balcony or simply in the yard. Otherwise, your property might get really, really messy.
  • Tip overall dirt in a paper bin and wash the bag thoroughly.
  • After cleaning is done with, make sure it dries off completely. Your best option, however, is to buy a water filter vacuum cleaner, because it gathers all garbage within a container.
  • Throw dirty water from the cleaner container straight into the toilet. The water filter will restrain all particles, so they won't go back into the room.

Dirty Chore No 3 – Cleaning the Paper Waste Basket

Why homeowners hate it:

Thrown out food and liquids often end up outside the trash bin, which is in reach of pets and children. Often mould and unpleasant smells arise from rotting food within the bin itself. From there on, mould spores get in the air and thus raise the risk for a number of allergies.

What to do:

  • Regularly clean and empty the basket. Avoid dirt building up.
  • Go out in the open and leave in in the air for a while. Sun and fresh air act as natural antibacterial agents.
  • Spray with a disinfectant or a DIY green cleaning solution inside the basket and leave it for a few minutes at least once a week.
  • Use rubber gloves and sturdy wipe and scrub off all dirt via brush.
  • Rinse with water on a regular basis. Better use a shower head (if it's movable), or a hose.

Housekeeping Chore No 4 – Cleaning the Ceiling Fan

Why homeowners hate it:

Fans are the perfect environment for dust mites, which dramatically raise allergy risks. By constantly spinning, ceiling fans spread out particles and mites all over the room.

What to do:

  • Stop the device and place newspapers or old pieces of cloth on the floor, right beneath it. You'd better cover an area twice as bigger than the fan's size.
  • Fill out a spray bottle with disinfectant and soak in an old soft rug. A shower cap will help you protect your head and hair from dust and dirt.
  • Step on a ladder, so that you make sure your head is above the fan. Use a damp pillow case or a shoe bag. Рun it all over one of the fan's wings, so that you clean it in a way all dirt stays within the case.
  • Use the old rug to clean what has remained of grime. If the ceiling is too high, use a micro fibre brush formed as a noose. It will serve you good to clean all unreachable surfaces.

Dirty Chore No 5: Cleaning the Bathroom

Why people hate it:

if not wiped on time, hardened soap foam (full of dirt) along with showers and bathroom walls, are very difficult to clean after. A humid environment is appropriate for mould development, especially on the grout. The deposits damage the structure, let alone tile colours.

What to do:

  • Spray the walls with a cleaning solution and scrub all over with a hard brush.
  • Pay special attention to the grout between the tiles.
  • Use a window cleaner for the glass surfaces. If you are a fan of green cleaning, use one of the many vinegar solutions.
  • You may not need to rinse it since the smell will disappear soon.

Domestic Job No 6 – Cleaning Under and Behind the Fridge

Why people hate it:

Fridge parts can accumulate a lot of dirt, which reduces work capacity and damages the whole system. Under the fridge floor, grime can mix with moisture and permanently stick to the floor.

What to do:

  • Pull out the kitchen appliance, turn it off and wait for a little while. The food won't go stale for the time you spend on cleaning it.
  • Use the vacuum cleaner's hose to gather all the dirt from the back of the appliance.
  • Wipe the walls with a damp cloth and a dishwasher solution.
  • Wipe the floor with a proper cleaning solution, minding the surface you have (stone and ceramic surfaces will suffer from an acidic solution).
  • Turn the appliance back on and put it back in place.
  • If it's possible, keep it turned off while you move it.

Of course, when it comes down to domestic cleaning, the list of chores can literally go on forever. The chores listed here are simple a handful of what the average urban housewife has to tackle on a regular basis. You could always go for a professional domestic cleaning, but it does not hurt to improve the way you handle domestic cleaning!
