Plumbing Repairs, Including Replacing Faucets by Handy Giant

Handy Giant technicians can assist with a variety of minor plumbing repairs, including fixing a leaky faucet and installing a new toilet.

Replacing a Faucet

Faucets contain a number of working parts that deliver water, including a spout, handles, lift rod, aerator, water inlets, mixing chamber, and cartridge. From screws and washers to supply nuts and aerators, correctly installing a faucet can sometimes prove too difficult or tedious. A Commercial Handyman can help out by installing the faucet for you. Using your chosen faucet style, our technician will do the hard part of removing the old and installing the new faucet and making sure it works correctly.

Sink Installation

A new sink can dramatically affect the look and feel of a room. For the kitchen, many homeowners opt for the practicality and elegance of a stainless steel sink, which not only looks great but makes cleaning up hassle free. For bathrooms, a stylish or attractive sink can give the room a look of elegance some homeowners may have not thought possible.

While a new sink can vastly improve the look and feel of a kitchen or bathroom, a new sink can be challenging for many home owners to accomplish on their own. At times, some homeowners opt for an expensive contracting service to perform sink installation, but there’s another way. Instead of going with a costly contractor, give the technicians at Commercial Handyman a call. Our experienced craftsmen bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to every job, and they’ll be happy to assist in installing your chosen sink in your kitchen or bathroom.

For new sinks or sink repairs, count on the professionals at Commercial Handyman services to assist with your building plumbing needs.

Drain Repair

A clogged drain can make any of the plumbing fixtures inoperable. Whether you have a sink that doesn’t drain properly or a shower that holds water for too long, a Commercial Handyman can assist. Sometimes drain repair needs can be solved relatively quickly by an experienced handyman. At other times, however, portions of a drain may need to be disassembled, examined, and cleared before being replaced. In some cases, a handyman may determine that a replacement part is necessary (like a tailpiece, reducer, or PVC trap) to ensure normal operation for your drain. Call a Commercial Handyman representative today to discuss repair options.

Toilet Repair by Handy Giant

A broken or malfunctioning toilet can render your bathroom practically unusable.

Toilets have several parts and mechanisms that are essential to their effective operation, and a defect with any of these parts can make a toilet inoperative. Common toilet malfunctions include,

  • The flush handle and its chain have disconnected, making the toilet unflushable.
  • Toilet tank continuously fills with water, causing tremendous water waste.
  • A partial flush, when a toilet does not flush completely.
  • Tank fills too slowly, delaying the time it takes to flush.

There problems are quite common, and while they are certainly a nuisance for a homeowner, they can be fixed with the right tools and expertise. Commercial Handyman professionals can assist with most toilet repair needs. If you’re experiencing one of the problems listed above or a similar issue, give Commercial Handyman Services a call and a technician will be dispatched to attend to your toilet repair needs.

Toilet Installation

Sometimes, a faulty toilet cannot be repaired, and some homeowners simply prefer to update their bathroom with a new toilet. At other times, toilets, made from a combination of several types of clay, can chip and break, making them hazardous to use. Toilet removal and installation can be a laborious task for many homeowners, especially those who don’t have much knowledge of plumbing and their home’s water valves.
If you’ve chosen and acquired your new toilet but need help with the installation our technicians can assist with installing your new toilet and removing the old one. Give Commercial Handyman Services a call today and we’ll arrange a time that suits your schedule to visit your building and remove the current toilet and install the new one. That way, you won’t have to worry about shutting off your toilet’s water supply, correctly removing your current toilet, and disposing of your former toilet once the new one is installed.With Commercial Handyman Services, the hard work is taken care of and you’re left with a new and improved bathroom.

9 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

Home maintenance isn’t restricted to repairs. In fact, certain tasks–when performed regularly–may actually prevent things from breaking in the first place. But when things do go wrong (and it’s inevitable that they do), we have some backup plans that you can try before you grab the phone to call for pro. Appliances and plumbing are the most frequent offenders, but they also often can be the simplest to care for. From the gutters to the living room carpet, there’s a reliable method for keeping every part of your home clean, safe, and well maintained.

9 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

MUST-DO MAINTENANCE:

The quickest fix is to not have the problem in the first place. Here’s a checklist of items every homeowner should get to regularly.

1. Test your garage door opener monthly to ensure that it reverses when it hits an obstruction or when its sensor beam is interrupted.

2. Vacuum the clothes dryer’s exhaust duct at least once a year. If the duct is plastic, replace it (it’s a fire hazard). Rigid sheet-metal ducting is best.

3. Replace furnace filters quarterly, or as recommended by the furnace manufacturer.

4. Test all GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets monthly. Press the test button and use a voltage tester to make sure the power goes off.

5. Clean leaves and debris from the condenser of a central air conditioner seasonally.

6. Once a year, vacuum the refrigerator coils underneath the appliance.

7. Have the fireplace chimney inspected and cleaned annually.

8. Inspect window and door caulking and weather stripping yearly.

9. Replace the batteries in smoke detectors yearly. And remember, even recent hard-wired smoke detectors have backup batteries that must be replaced. If you have never checked yours, do so.

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes

A 1/8-inch crack can leak up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing flooding, structural damage and the immediate potential for mold.

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes advice by Boston Home Services

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes? Advice by Boston Home Services.

Why Frozen Pipes Are a Problem

Water expands as it freezes. This expansion puts extreme pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to severe cold, like outdoor water faucets, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines, and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets. Also, pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to freezing.

A 1/8-inch crack in a pipe can leak up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing flooding, serious structural damage, and the immediate potential for mold.

In the US, frozen pipes cause significant damage every year, but they often can be prevented. Taking a few simple steps, even now, may save you the aggravation and expense.

Prevention

There are three common causes of frozen pipes:

1. Quick drops in temperature

2. Poor insulation

3. Thermostats set too low

There are a number of preventative steps you can take to keep your pipes from freezing:

  • Check the insulation of pipes in your home’s crawl spaces and attic. Exposed pipes are most susceptible to freezing.
  • Heat tape or thermostatically controlled heat cables can be used to wrap pipes. Be sure to use products approved by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratories Inc., and only for the use intended (exterior or interior). Closely follow all manufacturers’ installation and operation instructions.
  • Seal leaks that allow cold air inside near where pipes are located. Look for air leaks around electrical wiring, dryer vents, and pipes, and use caulk or insulation to keep the cold out. With severe cold, even a tiny opening can let in enough cold air to cause a pipe to freeze.
  • Use an indoor valve to shut off and drain water from pipes leading to outside faucets. This reduces the chance of freezing in the short span of pipe just inside the house.
  • A trickle of hot and cold water might be all it takes to keep your pipes from freezing. Let warm water drip overnight, preferably from a faucet on an outside wall.
  • Keep your thermostat set at the same temperature during both day and night. You might be in the habit of turning down the heat when you’re asleep, but further drops in the temperature – more common overnight – could catch you off guard and freeze your pipes.
  • Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls.

If Your Pipes Do Freeze…

Don’t panic. Just because they’re frozen doesn’t mean they’ve already burst. Here’s what you can do:

  • If you turn on your faucets and nothing comes out, leave the faucets turned on and call a plumber.
  • If your house or basement is flooding, turn off the water valve and immediately call 911.
  • Do not touch or use electrical appliances in areas of standing water due to electrocution concerns.
  • Never try to thaw a pipe with a torch or other open flame because it could cause a fire hazard. Every year, many building fires are caused by people trying to thaw frozen pipes. All open flames in homes present a serious fire danger, as well as a severe risk of exposure to lethal carbon monoxide.
  • You may be able to thaw a frozen pipe with the warm air from a hair dryer. Start by warming the pipe as close to the faucet as possible, working toward the coldest section of pipe.
  • Again, if your water pipes have already burst, turn off the water at the main shutoff valve in the house; leave the water faucets turned on and call 911. Make sure everyone in your family knows where the water shutoff valve is and how to open and close it. Likely places for the water turn-off valve include internal pipes running against exterior walls or where water service enters a home through the foundation.
  • If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat set to a temperature no lower than 55ºF.

Common Air Conditioning and Heating Ductwork Problems

Common Air Conditioning and Heating Ductwork Problems. Boston Home Services

How’s my ducting?

National studies of residential duct systems indicate that many duct systems leak 40% or more.  This means that 40% of cooling capacity, heating capacity, and utility dollars are going into unconditioned space.  Duct leaks also cause pressure imbalances inside the home causing indoor air quality problems.

We find many duct systems to be poorly designed, installed or don’t have a improperly implemented maintenance program. A sure sign of duct problems is rooms that heat or cool unevenly.  Dust streaks around supply vents are often thought to be caused by a dirty duct system.  Most of the time dust streaks around supply vents are caused by leaks in the duct system between the “bucket”, the sheet rock, and the supply vent cover.  A venture effect caused by the moving air sucks dirt, humidity and heat directly from the attic.

Poorly insulated points or sections of ducting can cause moisture and microbial growth to occur.  Air is then circulated past the molds growing in the duct system, distributing mold spores thru out your home. Since these spores are created after the filter; even the best filtration system can’t fix this duct problem.

Proper duct design is also important in achieving and maintaining proper system operation and efficiency.  Some residential homes and commercials buildings have supply air outlets placed near the interior walls of the home.  This poor duct installation practice creates a need to run high duct static pressures in order to push air all the way from the interior wall to the exterior wall where the majority of the heat enters your home.  This one poor duct design feature creates a host of potential problems.

Definition: Property maintenance relates to the upkeep of a home, apartment, rental property or building – commercial or residential real estate.  Boston Home Management is a property maintenance company.
