I live in a 2 story town home and my bottom floor suddenly smells like fresh paint. I've checked everywhere I store chemicals, and tried turning AC off but can't find the source. My neighbors that are connected to us have said they don't have the smell in their units, so could this be a leak of some kind?
I purchased a replacement L motor and can't find instructions anywhere.
I've taken off the panel and the existing motor doesn't appear to be removable without taking the whole range hood down. Reddit hive mind, can I replace it while the hood is mounted? Are there any instructions somewhere?
This may be posted on the incorrect sub.
Hi all! I’m looking to rent a new home bc my lease is coming to an end in my current home and the owner is selling, so we gotta go. I don’t have the best credit however do make decent money, paying rent would never be an issue. I was trying to find private owners that rent to people privately and figured I’d check Facebook market place. I reached out to a few people and was given a WhatsApp # for most and figured those are probably scams. However I did reach out to one person and they gave me their phone number to reach out to. I sent them a text letting them know I was interested and they confirmed which property bc “they have a few listed currently” (red flag #1?) The man I spoke with stated his home was move in ready and the security deposit was 1k. He stated he doesn’t take deposits until the client views the property. I also asked his credit requirements and he said over 500 (red flag #2?) He also told me app fee for every adult is $60 but bc he is “out of town” he will do $50 for me. This guy had a strong accent, maybe Nigerian, and told me he was the husband of the person who I reached out to (red flag 3?). I’ve never ever communicated with someone on marketplace and wanted other’s opinions. This guy was telling me to let him know when I would like to view the property and he would send me the code for the master lock and we would go from there. He hasn’t asked me for any info or payment of any kind. Does this sound fishy to you guys? I get a feeling this may be exactly what I’m looking for but also feels too good to be true. Thanks for any feedback!
Wondering if it should actually cost $1700 to fix this.
So recently my ceiling started to cave in, it happened over night, like literally the night before it was all fine and the next day I wake up to my whole ceiling vexing cracked across. I’ve noticed some nails slowly pushing through causing small holes or one nail falling out a while ago but didn’t think much of it.
Just a couple days ago did my ceiling just randomly appear to have a giant crack across.
My room’s dimension is W: 8ft 9in, L: 12ft 6in.
So the crack is practically 8ft6in long.
The repairmen who came over said that it’d cost $1700 to replace the drywall(not the whole room, but majority of the cracked area), add new screws, paint, and add insulation above the ceiling.
Should it really cost that much? Seems kinda pricy to me for this sort of repair. But I may be wrong and willing to learn.
In my bedroom every once in a while I hear a crack or snap kind of noise coming from the floor, mostly around my bed. The floors are wooden but it just doesn't sound like regular noises. This is probably a stupid question but is it possible that my bed is too heavy for the floor?
We had a kitchen fire last year and the contractors recently got the cabinets/countertops installed. Should I mention the countertop overhang on the fridge side? Seems like it should align with the cabinets like on the oven side.
Carpet installed today through a corporate store that subbed it out. Installers yell down “Ok we are all done!” and Come downstairs to find the gap in photo #1. Installed explains there is a high lip here that he couldn’t just go over, as it would most likely require regular stretching over time and he could do that to his warranty. He suggested we PAINT the exposed slat of concrete floor to look like the carpet.
I explain that’s not gonna work at all, and we need a different solution. He comes up with installing a strip of fabric (Pic #2).
Upon contacting the store we purchased it from, they explain the installer told them it was a 2 inch lip, and that the strip of fabric option was the option we picked before he even tore up the old carpet because he immediately noticed the uneven section. Which the estimator failed to notice.
Am I being unreasonable to reach out to the store and ask for a better option here?
I got a mattress off some guy selling them from home (yes I know shady af) but anyway, it seemed to be covered in shiny white/clear like shards that shined in the light.. I got it all over my clothes (which I’ve thrown away) .. anyway I just washed a load of laundry that had a sweater that was lying on the floor of the bathroom where I took the other clothes off.. I noticed shiny stick like things on my clothes :( could this have been fiber glass???? My husband thinks I’m overreacting but I have kids and I don’t want to get it all over their clothes too…. Idk what to do HELP
So I moved into an apartment in a new development a few months ago, and I’ve noticed that my eyes get dry and irritated quite often when I’m home. Did some googling and supposedly it could be formaldehyde from newly laid hardwood flooring (which I have), but wanted to check if anyone here has potential explanations. Should I be worried? Thanks.
Hello, as title says, my dogs and little sister ran into room with fresh grout. Grout had been laid for about an hour. It was hard already, and there was no visible movement of the tiles. Also, tiles had already been allowed to dry for 24 hrs prior to grout. Will this cause my tiles to crack or break in a few months? What could happen due to this? Is there any tests I can do for damage? Thank you
