5 Easy DIY Home Improvement Projects , Green, Ohio

While major remodeling projects usually call for professionals, there are many home improvement projects you can handle yourself. The professionals at Murphy Home Improvement in Cincinnati are always available to replace your windows and doors, or help with other home remodeling projects. But if a quick fix or change is all that's needed, there are several easy tasks you can complete without too much effort.

Check out these simple fixes for your home: 

  • Squeaky Doors: That telltale squeak emanating from the door may be annoying—but it's also a simple fix! Basic household items, such as petroleum jelly or WD-40, are all you need to lubricate hinges and reduce the friction that causes the noise.

  • Tub Stains: Some tub stains are so stubborn that they may seem impossible to remove. Yet a simple concoction of equal parts baking soda, cream of tartar, and lemon juice create a paste that gently lifts the stain from the tub. Finish by rinsing with water and marvel at the sparkling results.

  • home improvementDirty Glass: Whether it's an old vase, a decanter, or a candle jar, some types of dirty glasses are quite stubborn. Fill half of the vessel with hot water, a drop of dishwashing soap, and a couple of spoons of white vinegar. Add a full cup of uncooked rice, which helps detach any lingering residue. Rinse and enjoy the shine.

  • Polluted Air: When indoor allergies suddenly kick in, the problem may be as simple as changing out your HVAC filter. This should ideally be done every three months. Simply swapping out the old for a new filter will reduce dust particles in the air.

  • Boring Rooms: If you're tired of your home's overall look and feel it could benefit from a little boost, why not give it a quick makeover? Move around some furniture or paint an accent wall. Even adding a few flowers or unexpected trinkets here and there can transform a room from so-so to stunning.

There are many ways to improve the look and condition of your home without a lot of effort. But for home improvement projects that require professional attention, don't hesitate to contact Murphy Home Improvement. Whether it's windows, doors, gutters, or siding, they'll handle it for you.
