    Repair a Sink Sprayer: $5 or less

    Mineral deposits in the aerator can rob a sink sprayer of its power. Unscrew the aerator from the sprayer and scrub it out with a toothbrush, then soak it in vinegar overnight. If that doesn't solve the problem, turn off the water to the fixture and remove the faucet handle and spout. Inside the faucet body, you'll find a small, round diverter valve. Scrub that valve with a toothbrush, coat new O-rings and washers with heat-proof grease, and reassemble the faucet.

    Patch a Hole in Drywall:
    $8 or lessYou can fix small holes and minor drywall damage in less than an hour. Scrape the area smooth, using a putty knife. Use the putty knife to fill small holes with ultra-light spackle. Sand when dry. Cover larger holes with nylon drywall tape, then use a broadknife to smooth a coat of joint compound over the area. When the compound is dry, add a second coat, feathering out the edges. Allow to dry. Sand, prime, and paint the repair.

      As a part of repairs, maintenance may involve the following operations: inspections, replacements, adjustments and even cleaning. Performing maintenance in the right way can be good for preventing expensive emergencies. An example of work that can help people avoid unpleasant situations can be the series of tests and adjustment that are necessary each year when homeowners have alarm systems installed. Issues can also be prevented with a good household management. Placing a moisture barrier beneath roof tiles may be good against leaks.”^”^
