Why Household Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Problems around the house are a little like flies at times. A certain amount you can ignore, especially if they’re small and quiet. But the bigger they are and the more of them there are, the worse. And before too long, because you ignored the little ones, there are a lot of big ones, and they’re doing real damage. As tempting as it may be just to say “it’s not a real issue” or “I’ll get that looked at – soon”, it’s a bad idea.

The fact is that problems are usually easier to solve than we build them up to be. Would you rather be under the sink fixing a pipe or sitting watching TV? Probably the latter, but considering it takes next to no time to do the work there’s no reason to cancel the great binge-watch. A fifteen-minute postponement won’t ruin the whole thing. And you won’t have to worry about an inevitable kitchen flood, which is always good.

Of course, there are going to be some problems around the home that you won’t be able to fix. It’s useful to have the wisdom to know the difference between the two. It’s also wise to bear in mind that stopping it getting to the point where repairs are needed is the best course altogether. Yes, it’s boring. But it takes so much less time and money.

The truth is, repairing even minor issues in your home can be a time suck and can cost more than you would like. Yes, you can replace your faucets yourself – and at some point, might do so just for a change. But if you keep them in good condition on an ongoing basis, you won’t be forced into it.

Those basic bits of housekeeping will save you a lot of time and money, but annoyingly they can be things you just wouldn’t consider in the basic run of housework. If you’re not sure what you should be doing then these details from Assured Comfort are a handy reference. If you really want to save time then it’s always going to be better to, say, stop food from being washed down the sink. That way you don’t have to ask yourself whether to call a plumber for the blocked pipe or do it yourself.

The same goes for issues anywhere in your home, not just within the plumbing. Major electrical issues such as frayed wires and regular fuse blow-outs are likely to need some intervention. A trained electrician will know precisely what to do and do it safely. However, a blown fuse in a plug can typically be easily replaced by hand, and you should change light bulbs on a semi-regular basis.

Problems around your house can be simple or complicated. If you treat them as a minor inconvenience, then you’re not saving yourself time or money. If problems are allowed to become chronic, the time will come when they present a real threat to your and your family’s health. If that happens, then you can end up paying in much more than dollars. Taking preventative measures is a huge step towards securing safety.
