Why does my front-load washing machine smell like mold?
Most scents may be eliminated with a washing machine cleaner, which you can purchase. If the issue still exists, we may unscrew the pump and hose and thoroughly clean it; this might be helpful.
The temperature of my hot water seems to be higher than what I think it needs to be.
The new standard temperature that manufacturers use when presetting your water heater at the factory is typically 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a sufficient temperature for most households. If you have an older model, you can set the thermostat at medium. Gas models usually have a dial on the front of the gas valve. Electric models have thermostats — there may be two — that are concealed behind the two panels on the side of the tank. You can adjust the temperature to meet your needs. Keep in mind that hot water also helps in minimizing the growth of bacteria.NOTE: Turn off the electricity to the water heater before performing any personal maintenance. There can be exposed wires behind the panels that may result in extreme shock.
I just wanted to know what time the electrician will arrive since we have a session today, so the electrician will only get to see the breaker and not the room with the issue.
I can't really reach the technician right now. Give me a minute, and I'll tell him to call you and inform you of his ETA.
Why is outdoor lighting so expensive?
If you’ve installed both indoor and outdoor lighting, you’ve probably noticed how much more expensive the latter seems to be. This is because every part of outdoor lighting must be strong and durable enough to last for many years outside. Everything, from the light fixtures to the wiring, must be completely waterproof and difficult to break. When it comes to outdoor lighting, you must pay for these higher-quality, more expensive materials.
Why does the water in my house look yellow?
This is most likely due to the fact that your piping system is very old. Over time, rust can build up inside the pipes, which causes water to look yellow. We can carefully examine the state of your pipes and provide you with pipe replacement services.
