Draining Your Hot Water Heater

  • Start with turning off the water valve that supplies the hot water tank.
  • Then attach the hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the water heater.
  • Open the same valve (water valve that supplies the hot water tank) then open the pressure relief valve.
  • Allow the water to drain completely.
  • When the tank is empty, turn on the water supply valve and allow the water to drain.
  • Empty the bucket periodically if you're not using a floor drain.
  • Close the drain valve and pressure relief valve so the tank can refill.
  • For an electric water heater, flip the circuit breaker or plug the unit back in.
  • For the gas water heater, turn on the gas and relight the pilot light.
  • Remember there is a potential danger of flooding, hot water heater valves that have not been used in a while or that are made of plastic have the potential to leak.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on the valve after you have closed it to ensure that there's no drip and that it's not defective.

Remodeling staircase

Paying to have your staircase remodeled can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $30,000.

If you're looking for custom work to be done, it'll end up on the higher end of the price scale.

But you can always get in touch with your crafty side and "Do It Yourself"

  • Starting with paint touch-ups or overall coverage
  • Sand and refinish the Tread
  • Adding a runner
  • Refinishing your hand railing & baluster in a bold new color or stain.
  • Adding words, decorative tile, or stenciling to the riser.

The styles are endless.

And keep in mind how wonderful you can decorate your handrail for the holidays!

Tools you may need:

How to stencil a carpet

Stenciling is an easy cheap way to add design to your room. You can Stencil over Glass, Tile, Fabric, Floor, Carpet, and more.

Tools you'll need:

  • Fabric
  • Fabric paint
  • Adhesive spray
  • Painters tape
  • Paint tray
  • Towel or rag
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • Paintbrush of your choice (sponge, brush)
  • Stencil of choice

Prep the surface before you start.

Make sure your carpet is clean. To stencil clean lines without bleed you can either use an adhesive spray to your stencil

or painter's tape to secure your stencil in place. Begin with your brush dabbing your paint evenly coating in layers.

(Tip: Make sure to dab off half the amount of paint you put on your brush before applying to the stencil) this will ensure you don't have bleeds and it will cover evenly.

Lightly tap tap tap the brush as you go over your stencil. When done the 1st stencil, let dry for a minute or two then peel off carefully and stick to the next section

lining up using a ruler or measuring tape.  Continue over and over until done. 

Also, don't be afraid to grab a small paintbrush and touch up where needed if there's a spot that wasn't fully covered.

Let dry completely before putting any furniture or walking on your carpet.
