Open-exteiror-dorr-whiteAmong the most common problems encountered in a home, disturbing noise really does it for homeowners. Fortunately, here are several simple solutions to remedy the problem.

1- Fix Squeaking Door Hinges

Although common, squeaking door hinges is a problem that can easily be resolved. Take out the rod from the hinge, grease it and put it back into place. Open and close the door a few times to distribute the lubricant evenly and stop the squeaking.

2- Repair Leaking Toilets

In addition to trying your patience, a leaking toilet will put a strain on your electric bill, not to mention that it can waste up to 78,000 gallons of water per year. There can be many causes to this problem. However, in most cases, the problem is often linked to the toilet float no longer being above the pipe inside the tank. Other issues can also be caused by the handle, the valve, the chain or the faucet.


3- Fix Squeaky Hardwood Floors

A hammer drill and some screws are all you need to resolve this problem. Add screws into squeaky floor boards and cover the holes with sealing material.


4- Stop Whistling Windows

Whistling windows are caused by poor insulation or not enough sealant. To solve this problem, all you need to do is find and plug the holes to prevent air from causing the whistling noise.

A few tools and a little of your time is all that is required to get rid of disturbing noise!
