5 ways to boost your home's curb appeal

(BPT) - Spring and summer continue to be the most popular months for selling your home, according to Realtor.com. And with many homeowners staying in their houses for an average of 13 years, your home will surely need some sprucing up to add to its curb appeal. By following a these simple steps, you can increase your home’s value without breaking the bank.

Rejuvenate the outdoor living area. Before making a trip to your local home center, make sure to wash the dirt, mildew and general grime off the outside of your house. A power washer is a great tool to help clean siding and renew the surface of decks. A good washing will also bring out the true color of a beautiful flagstone walkway or patio.

Invest in the best tools for the job. One of the most useful tools in creating curb appeal is a hose. From power washing your deck and siding to maintaining your lawn and garden, your hose takes more abuse than any other tool. The Gilmour Flexogen hose is perfect for a variety of outdoor applications and is the strongest hose in its class. Its durable eight-layer construction is ideal for homeowners who put their tools to the test season after season.

How Plumbing Is Flushing Into the Future

(NewsUSA) - It's scary to imagine a life without proper plumbing. In fact, most people seem to take modern-day plumbing for granted. But the plumbing industry has grown by leaps and bounds throughout the years.

Before the introduction of modern-day plumbing luxuries such as sewage drainage and disposal systems, flushing toilets and water treatment systems, diseases ran rampant due to the lack of clean water. Diseases such as polio, cholera, and even the black plague took the lives of far too many people before modern plumbing was introduced as we know it today.

There was a time when waste was dumped onto streets, or even into rivers, instead of being properly disposed. This unfortunately contaminated drinking water, which helped spread those killer diseases. However, that's a thing of the past. In today's world, clean water is easily accessible thanks to modern-day plumbing luxuries.

Although the plumbing industry has grown by leaps and bounds throughout the years, the industry continues to look for new ways to improve. The industry is now focusing on improving efficiency, conserving water and reducing costs for homeowners. And the way to accomplish those goals may involve a greater focus on "green" technology.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing is an example of a company dedicated to improving the plumbing industry.
