Homes are our heaven! The dream of millions is to have a space of their own. Considering that it is a major investment, we leave no stone un turned to keep it safe, strong and beautiful. All your free time and energy is spent in setting the home right, moving around things till the desirable is achieved.
These days we also can have the help of experts and bloggers in the field of interiors and décor who guide you to add the extra zing to your abodes! Not only do they give you interesting decorating tips but also informative ones.
One such blog that I found to be a little different and providing info also on the maintenance and upkeep of our homes is ‘The Happy Homes Blog’. As I was reading through the various posts on the blog, I had an instant connect with it. Most of the time we are concerned more about the décor of our homes rather than its overall maintenance and this is one aspect which cannot be over emphasized. Some years back, we had to take up a major repairing work in our home because of negligence in waterproofing. What started as a small issue, took a real bad turn. One of our walls had a mild dampness which we could see over time but somehow never thought much about it until it started showing an ugly patch of black wall due to mold formation. Preventive maintenance would have tackled the issue at the very start. I remember we had to shell quite a bit to set it straight.
Another incident that comes to mind and we are dealing with it currently. My parents’ home is going through a major revamping because of some floor tiles that has come off loose. One thing led to another and we could hear many tiles making ‘that’ particular sound when you walk on them that finally it came to a point that the whole flooring has to be replaced.
Why am I boring you with all these woes? Just to stress on the importance of waterproofing, fixing and caring for tiling, insulation and all other regular upkeep that one must carry out in their homes. The happy homes blog addresses all such problems that you didn’t have a clue about. Now does it make sense when I say, it’s a Different blog?
