What Home Sellers Should Re-Inspect After a Major Storm

Thanks to Clean Sweep for this episode of Tips from the Pros about inspecting your home after a storm.

When preparing to list a home, many home buyers have the most critical and expensive pieces of the property inspected—the roof, the chimney, the foundation and more. However, a major storm can completely change the safety of these essential parts of a home. It’s better to fix problems before you have an offer and you’re sitting at a table with a home inspection report.

Roof and Exterior Siding

Even if you have durable slate roofing, a great deal of damage can be done in a short period of time. Have the roof inspected for missing or broken shingles, holes, dents and any other damage...

Air ducts need to be cleaned every 3-5 years.

Thanks to Clean Sweep for this episode of Tips from the Pros about cleaning your air ducts.

Air duct cleaning is an essential part of maintaining your home, but it can be hard to tell when you’re overdue for a visit from Clean Sweep Maryland. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends a professional cleaning every 3-5 years. Some conditions warrant a visit more frequently.

What Are the Benefits of an Air Duct Cleaning?

Air duct cleaning is great for improving indoor air quality and removing household allergens associated with asthma-like symptoms. Dust mites, pollen, pet danger and dust all enter the air and are sucked into your home’s air ducts.

When the ducts are not cleaned on a regular basis, the dirty air...

11 reasons you have clutter

Thanks to Cindy Bernstein of Aim4Order for this episode of Tips from the Pros about the reasons we have clutter.

Try as we might, we all have some clutter in our lives. Understanding the reasons why we accumulate so many things can help us turn it around and begin to reduce clutter.

1 . You’re not sure what clutter actually is.

Clutter, as defined by Merriam-Webster is, “Scattered or disordered things that impede movement or reduce effectiveness. A crowded or confused mass or collection.”

2. You can’t resist a sale.

Do you ever buy things you already have? You may buy things in bulk because you think you’ll use them, but then don’t. Often you take advantage of items that are on sale that you think you might need, but never do.

The Five Elements

In this issue of Tips from the Pros, here is a blog from Chuck Graham an acupuncturist.

The study of the 5 elements is the study of relationships in nature. It is, along with yin and yang, the basic philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine. The ancient Chinese observed these relationships in nature, and applied them to their understanding of the human body.

The five elements, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood, are not simply the foundation of this beautiful system of medicine: they are the foundation and spirit of all nature around us. The five elements are alive both around us and in us: they are a way to describe the movement of all life and all energy. They embody all the qualities that we encounter in Nature...
