Moving 101

packing-tips-img-01

Getting ready for a move requires time, planning — and a good bit of hard work. Whether you’re moving from a larger space to a smaller one or vice versa, there are almost certainly items that you uncover as you consider a move that you don’t want to take with you. If you don’t want to move a ton of extra “stuff” that you may never use again, try these pre-move clean-out tips.

Keep, Toss, Donate
Organization experts recommend that you go through your items on a regular basis, determining what you simply can’t live without and what you simply won’t miss when it’s gone. If these items are in bad shape, you may not even be able to donate them and will need to toss them immediately. One way to move quickly through each room is to make three piles: one each to keep, toss and donate. When in doubt, give it away.

Use Color Coding
Getting organized is one thing, staying that way during a move is quite another! Try assigning a single color of tape or marker to each room in your home (and keeping track in a central location such as a moving clipboard). Each box or package that goes in your living room is marked with blue, for instance. This easy system allows you to see at a glance where a particular box belongs.

Keep it Clean
It’s always easier to clean as you go, as waiting until everything is finished can leave you with what feels like an overwhelming job. Try cleaning a bit in each room as you go, that way you’re one step closer to the door when it’s time to finish packing and hit the road.

Having the right tools for the job starts with working with a knowledgeable team. Contact the pros at West Coast Moving Systems today at 510-893-3810 to learn more or get a free video quote.

Common Roof Leak locations and how to fix them safely

Aeriall view group of new home and house residential top view

Fussing to try and find a leak as soon as it happens is something that could put you in the hospital.

Meddling on a roof while it’s raining or covered with ice and snow isn’t the ideal way to find a leak. Trying to temporarily fix a leak could be highly dangerous. If you want to do it right, there is no quick-fix.

Just take your time, and be very patient and careful to wait for Mother Nature to give you the green light.

Winterize Your Home

New insulated water pipes

Pay less for hot water by insulating pipes. That can also help decrease the chance of pipes freezing, which can be disastrous. Check to see if your pipes are warm to the touch. If so, they are good candidates for insulation. (Use the same method to determine if your hot water heater would benefit from some insulation.)

You can get pre-slit pipe foam at most hardware stores. Cut it to size and fasten in place with duct tape. Ideally, choose the insulation with the highest R-value practical, which is a measure of its heat-blocking power. Pipe insulation is often R-3, or, for batt styles that you wrap around, a stronger R-7.

Why would a glass sliding door shatter spontaneously?

Broken Store Window

Window expert, says that pre-existing damage and imperfections are both factors in the doors’ spontaneous shattering, but what else could possibly caused this breakage.

Spontaneous glass breakage is a phenomenon by which toughened glass (or tempered) may spontaneously break without any apparent reason. The most common causes are:

– Minor damage during installation such as nicked or chipped edges later developing into larger breaks normally radiating from point of defect.
– Binding of the glass in the frame, causing stresses to develop as the glass expands and contracts due to thermal changes or deflects due to wind
– Internal defects within the glass such as nickel sulfide inclusions
– Thermal stresses in the glass
– Inadequate glass thickness to resist wind load

Home Invasion, Are You Safe?

Hands Picking Lock

In the United States and many other English speaking countries (though not the United Kingdom) home invasion is an illegal and usually forceful entry to an occupied, private dwelling with intent to commit a violent crime against the occupants, such as robbery, assault, rape, murder, or kidnapping.

In some jurisdictions, there is a defined crime of home invasion; in others, there is no crime defined as home invasion, but events that accompany the invasion are charged as crimes.
