Electrical Problem

This problem is common in every house; it must be done by a professional ( Electrician ) because electricity is hazardous and can damage your house severely. Electrical problems such as faulty lines can cause many problems, including potential fire, damage to electrical equipment, electrocution, an increase in the electric bill, power outage, and a lot more. Sure, there are electrical problems that you can solve yourself, like replacing the light source or tighten the screws on a socket, but yet again, I recommend letting an electrician do it.

Plumbing Problem

Plumbing problems are an ache to the head, leaking faucets, leaking pipes, clogged drains, clogged toilets, and low water pressure are common problems. These plumbing problems can be done by yourself with proper tools, but it will take you more time and resources. If you want to do it yourself, these are the tools you might need; a wrench, safety goggles, plungers, gloves, sealing tape, tube & plastic cutters. If you can't fix it on your own, it is best to call the expertise of a plumber. Plumbers are very specialized on their own. You will be amazed at how they can fix your problem easily.

Home Network

Today, homes are equipped with sophisticated equipment. Equipment like a network switch, routers, access points, IoT Devices, firewall, UPS, and other devices found in your home network is hard to install.

If you are an IT professional specializing in networking, then a home network would be easy for you, but it is tough for others. Home networks should include a place where you can centralize all the networks in one place. For those who are not experts in this field, hiring an expert that would install your devices for your home network. Experts in this field can easily identify where they can deploy your equipment. They know where to install properly your Wi-Fi or the CCTV Camera for maximizing its performance by configuring them properly at your house. You can also consult them on what are your options to improve your home network. I really recommend letting the professionals do it because I'm sure you will be amazed.

Malfunctioning Appliances

Malfunctioning appliances are a common problem in every house today. Appliances like a fridge, air conditioner, washing machine, dryer, etc., are the most common malfunctioning appliances at home. Although there is always an option to get a new one, it is always recommended to let an expert technician look at it first. Some technician offers a free inspection first, and then they will recommend how they can fix it and offer you a price. Just make sure that the price is right that you will spend less compared to buying a new one.

Rising Damp

Rising Damp is one of the common problems in houses that are near the water. Rising damp is when the water or moisture coming from the ground rises inside your wall, this process is what they call capillary action. Water is sucked up through the wall like a straw, and this water may contain salts that will eventually appear outside of your wall. 

Rising damp can cause damage to the house's wall, especially on the paint or in the wallpaper. Depending on the severity of the rising damp problem, there are solutions or remedies that you can do on your own. On the other hand, you can prevent the rising damp problem before it shows up. To prevent the rising damp problem, you can apply a damp-proof course (DPC) on your wall using a DPC injection that is available on the market. There are also simple ways to prevent them. One of the easiest ways you can make sure that you have proper and clean sewage to keep the water in your house flowing to prevent rising dampness. You must also make sure that there are no leaks on your pipes because the dripping water may cause rising damp problems.

If the rising damp is already in your wall, I suggest that you hire some rising damp specialists who can handle the problem professionally. In my case, one friend of mine from the Philippines move to Sydney, Australia. She bought an old house, and she did not know that it has rising damp problems. So what I did research on google about "rising damp Sydney." I found some specialists in the area she lives in. What they did was they first surveyed the house and checked the rising damp issue first. After the survey, they gave my friend a quote on how much it costs and how they will fix it.
