So there is no time like the present to start maintenance before summer. 

Even if the words home maintenance don’t light a fire in your belly, the love of your property should. Make your house the star of every family BBQ with this simple summer home maintenance services checklist.

Deep Clean the Carpets

People who suffer from allergies suffer the most during the summer. Allergens get easily trapped in your rugs, carpets, and upholstery making them the prime suspects for the sneezing. Foot traffic affects how much you need to clean your carpet. The average is to get the carpets deeply cleaned every six to twelve months. 

Frequent vacuuming will help to maintain the freshness of your house for a longer time. However, for optimum results the recommendation is to hire a cleaning specialist once a year.

Home Maintenance Services; BBQ Cleaning

The first home maintenance service you have to do before firing up the grill and inviting people over is to clean it up. For food safety and to ensure nothing happens to your guests, a deep clean is needed. If your grill has any mechanical issues call a professional to take a look at it. Aside from that, you can make it brand new by yourself. 

For charcoal grills, make sure that it is empty and wipe away any dust or residue. Get a scrub brush, some hot water, and dish soap and start cleaning the inside and outside of the grill. Be sure to let it dry before using it.

For gas grills, close the lid and turn the heat on high and leave it for about half an hour. Let the grill cool and give it a good scrub with a grill brush. Wipe clean the outside with a cleaner and sponge. Lastly, clean out all the drip trays.

Home Maintenance Service; Deck Check

When you think of summer it’s all about the gatherings in the fresh air. Before starting all the fun, the deck must be inspected. This will make you see if there are any boards that are rotting so you can get them replaced. Another thing to look at is the seal. If you notice bubbling and cracks, it’s time to reseal your porch. 

After making sure everything is good to go, the only thing left to do is to power wash it all. Wash your deck and porch for a fresh new look to have the perfect space for summer. Hiring a professional will make this home maintenance service a task that you don’t have to put much thought into.

Clean the Windows and Blinds

WeServe as one of home maintenance projects to do is cleaning the window with pink gloves, a sponge, and a disinfectant.

Spring’s rain is almost in the rearview, giving you one less thing to worry about. This calls for a thorough window cleaning. Get a better view and let the sunshine into your house for a fresh-feeling house. Blinds are also important to clean them as they can harbor spores and allergens. 

For this home maintenance service, calling a professional will save you a lot of time and dangerous, hard work. The cost depends on how many windows you want to get cleaned.

Perform a Home Security Audit

Don’t give the burglars any chance to get into your home and keep your family safe. As this is not the most fun topic to talk about, it is essential to shed some light on it. Get an expert to come and install an alarm system for your house. If you already have one, make sure it is working perfectly for your home to be fully protected. 

Deep Clean your Fridge

Do you have unidentified leftovers in tupperware in the back of your fridge that you just can’t seem to clean? Well this is your sign to start tackling the whole fridge. Keep it running smoothly by giving it a little TLC. 

Use a coil brush to clean the refrigerator’s condenser coils. These coils accumulate a lot of dirt, pet hair, and food remnants. Dirty coils lead to the fridge to work harder to cool which will result in expensive repairs. Then use a mild cleanser to clean the entire interior to remove anything that might be stuck to it. Find a specialist to do any necessary repairs.

Pool Home Maintenance Service

The pool is one of the most used spots during summertime. Therefore, before sending out any pool party invitations for (well… yourself because the pandemic is not over) the swimming pool should be checked out. It must be inspected for leaks and that the heaters and pumps are operating normally. 

Let the love for your house fuel your motivation to complete these home maintenance services. While the tasks may seem dreary and exhausting, it’s important to keep your house looking its best. Call an expert for the different jobs before it gets too hot to handle. Grab yourself an iced tea and enjoy your summer!

Home Renovations to Add Value to Your House

WeServe modern house in the dark with the lights on against a blue background

When it comes to home improvements there are two major things to consider; if the improvement will increase the value of your home to you or if it will increase it to others when and if you decide to sell your house. The most valuable home renovations for your home are the ones that boost your home’s worth in relation to the amount you spent on it.

Strategic decisions are important to make during the renovations. Doing these projects serves two purposes; a joyous and happy feeling in your home while making an investment for the future. So now you might start asking yourself which home improvements add the most value? Read on to learn more about the best projects with the highest ROI (Return On Investment) to undertake to raise your home’s rate. 

Kitchen Renovations

The kitchen is the heart of any home. More than any room, it has a magnetic pull. Having a vibrant kitchen makes people want to gather around and socialize there. As a result, this room is what attracts prospective home buyers. To make the right decision is important here as it can make or break any possible deals. 

Minor renovations are the way to go when it comes to the kitchen. Stylish improvements can lead to a 60-120% return on investment. Interestingly, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the kitchen to get a big return. A minor remodel will recoup about 81% of its cost, while a major upscale remodel will only recoup 53.5% of its cost. The key is to not overdo it. Make the kitchen naturally flow with the rest of the house. 

The most valuable home renovations in Canada include modernizing the cabinets, countertops, installing new appliances, painting the walls, and putting in new flooring. These projects don’t have to be done at the same time. Incremental, well-timed kitchen improvements will go a long way.

Home Renovations: Bathroom Remodel

WeServe modern tile in bathroom

Bathrooms are more than just an essential space; they present a major opportunity to improve your home’s aesthetics and functionality. Just like the kitchen, bathroom remodeling shouldn’t be a large-scale process. If the renovation is done correctly, the average ROI for minor bathroom upgrades is 102%. Paying attention to small details and to the current design trends is essential during this process.

To boost your home’s value is more about prioritizing practical, cost-effective jobs that refreshes and upgrades the house. Re-caulking and re-tiling surfaces are one of the things that you can do. As well as installing new fixtures and lighting, painting, fixing the plumbing, and installing new flooring. 

Windows & Doors

WeServe living room with fireplace and big windows

Having a single-pane outdated, leaky window won’t add any value to your home. As a matter of fact it may downgrade the whole home. Installing modern, energy-efficient windows and doors will kill two birds in one stone. They will improve the home’s efficiency while making it more aesthetically pleasing. As is the case with large-scale renovations, this project is expensive. That said, you must keep in mind the potential ROI instead of only fixating on the cost. New windows yield a very significant return. Homeowners can recoup between 70 and 80% on the initial investment.

To have reliable windows and doors, you must look into ones that are certified. This way you are sure they are meeting certain standards for the design and performance. 


WeServe Front of house with stone stairs surrounded by plants

Curb appeal is the main attraction of the house. A beautiful landscape will not only make you the talk of the neighborhood but it will also increase the value of your house. A well maintained front yard and garden that is aesthetically pleasing makes all the difference. The estimates vary significantly for the landscaping’s ROI. However, a few things have a timeless appeal that have proven to matter during the selling process. Flowers, shrubs, walkways, and flagstones are examples of what you should have in your garden. 

Here is another reminder to not overdo it. An excessively manicured yard makes people think maintaining such an over-the-top garden is hard and exhausting. And this is the opposite of what you want when investing in a home renovation. So instead of going overboard, plant some flowers and create a beautiful space for people to sit in. A professional can help you out with creating the ideal landscape for your home. 

A Refreshed Deck for Home Renovations

It doesn’t matter who you are or how old you are, having a beautiful backyard deck to relax and socialize on is an appealing thing. And to no one’s surprise, refurbishing or even installing a deck has a very high return on investment. 

Homeowners can expect an ROI of approximately 75%. The prices for deck installation fluctuate but it is still an investment worth making. And for those who already have a deck, a few improvements go a long way. Refresh an old worn out space with power washing, staining, and sealing. 

With a better understanding of the ROI on each home renovations in Canada, now you can make the right decision for your home. Find a professional you see fit for you and let’s get to work!

Ditch Costly Home Repairs With These Simple Steps

House in Toronto Canada

Canadians are eager for the sun to come out. With the snow and ice finally retreating, everyone is excited to be outdoors. But before you fire up your grill and put out your patio furniture, be sure to repair the damages that took place during the winter season. Home repairs in Canada are crucial to making most of the summer season.

Since the harsh winter and snow causes some issues around the house, a few preventative measures must be taken before the issues get bigger than they have to. This will help you to avoid a costly project down the road. 

So here a few steps to follow: 

Start From the Top

Roof of a house in Toronto, Canada

The roof over your head is the first thing that protects you against the weather. So naturally, it is the one that takes the most hits from winter storms. Any small damage to the roof will start out as a leak. But eventually, if left untreated, it will turn into a more serious structural damage. When regular checks are done, this problem can be easily avoided. Who wants to deal with expensive home repairs anyway?

Different roof materials need different types of care. Shingles, for example, need to be checked more often. They are especially susceptible to winter storms. If there is any damaged or missing shingle from your roof, it can cause very serious water damage to your home. 

While you’re still up on your ladder checking your roof, make some time to clean up the debris that might be stuck in the eavestroughs. Backed up gutter can make the water seep under the shingles causing damage to the roof. 

Home Repairs Around the House

Patio of the house in Toronto, Canada

After finishing up the top of the house, the bottom needs a little inspecting as well. Walk around the building to check if there’s any chapped or peeling paint. Another thing to check out is the caulking. Carefully look around the windows and doors for the caulking as the cold weather might cause it to crack and fall off. 

Be sure to repair any gaps in the caulking for many reasons. One of them is to preserve energy. Another is that you will also prevent moisture from attacking the window sills and frames. 


Don’t forget about the foundation. Visually inspect it for any signs of damage. Due to the damp climate in Canada, basements are especially vulnerable to leaks. When checking for damage, you prevent water from leaking into the basement. 

With the repeated freezing and thawing cycles that happen in Canada, they put tremendous pressure on the home’s foundation. 

Look out for any deep holes in the ground around your home’s foundation. They collect water and can cause you damages that you don’t want.

Let me explain what will happen if you don’t take action regarding these holes. When water is collected near the foundation, it can seep through the tiniest crack. Over time, the crack will get bigger. And now you have no other option than to dig down into the foundation to repair the damage. It’s very expensive. So go for that walk around the house and be on the lookout. 

Driveway Home Repairs in Canada

Home with paved driveway

Paved driveways are a beautiful feature to include in your home. But the harsh winter is very cruel to it. With the cracks in the asphalt, water seeps into it and freezes during the cold weather. Now you have ice. This ice will cause even bigger cracks to develop. 

Driving on these cracks or even just parking will weaken the asphalt. This will make it break away.

You can protect your driveway with a sealer. You should apply it before the winter starts. 

Wood Everywhere

If you are a lover of wood and you have a wooden fence or deck then this one’s for you! They are pretty to look at, but they are very vulnerable to weather. Yes, they are resistant to weather damage. However, without regular maintenance they will deteriorate with time. 

To protect them from the harsh weather, reapply stain or sealant as required. Also, remove any section of wood showing signs of rot.

Trim Your Trees

The beautiful trees that add beauty and character to your yard can be very damaging to your house. If you don’t get them trimmed, a branch might fall onto your house during a storm. Hiring someone or just doing the trimming on your own once a year will save you a lot of money.

Home repairs in Canada can get expensive. So you always need to keep your eye out on anything suspicious happening inside or outside of your home. As a homeowner, it’s not an easy job to do regularly. But to steer clear of paying thousands of dollars for repairs that could have been prevented, make it a habit and be sure to do it on the regular.

Carpet Flooring: the Truth and the Best Options for Your Basement

WeServe Basement with Carpet Flooring

When you think about basements, you don’t think about carpet flooring. Basements are usually associated with flooding or being too damp.  Also, whenever you mention it to a homeowner, visions of mold come to mind. But let me surprise you, carpet flooring could work for your home and might even be the best option for you.

On the other hand, carpet flooring might work for your neighbor’s home but not yours. It all depends on your house. And don’t think you can install just any type of carpet in your house. There are many types of carpet flooring you should know about before making your decision. Be smart about how you choose and hopefully this article will guide you into the right direction. So here is the truth about carpet flooring and the best choices for your basement.

The Truth

WeServe Brown Basement with Carpet Flooring

Carpets are a great option for bedrooms, living rooms, and family rooms. They warm up the space and they have a variety of designs and colors that suit everybody. Also, they help dampen the sounds, making it great for the upper levels. 

Everyone’s biggest concern when having carpets in their basement is the mold. This would be an issue if you have a flood or some sort of leak. In fact, carpet flooring is no worse than any other popular flooring option. In case of a flood, your carpet can be easily dried out to avoid any mold issue. And if you act fast, all the problems will be averted and it wouldn’t be a health hazard for your home. 

Benefits of Carpet Floorings

Before anything else, everyone knows that carpet flooring adds warmth and comfort to your home. Another benefit you might not know of, you can install it over an uneven concrete floor. This is an added bonus as you won’t have to worry about fixing the floors before installing. Making it a win-win situation and saving you some money. And you won’t ever have to worry about having uneven floors.

The Best Carpet Flooring for Basements in Canada

WeServe Grey Carpet Floor

Carpets made from synthetic fibers. Hear me out, if you want to have carpet flooring in your basement this is the way to go! Why, you ask? Synthetic fibers do not retain moisture like the way natural fibers do. This way your carpet can withstand whatever circumstances come it’s way. The less moisture, the better when it comes to carpet flooring. A synthetic carpet can handle the increased moisture and will in fact release the extra moisture. This means no more mold or mildew growth issues under your carpet.

Another thing you need to know is if the backing and padding material is also synthetic. This is just as important as having synthetic fibers on top of your carpet. Make sure to ask your carpet specialist before installing it. You also need to ensure that the underpad is also synthetic for the same reasons stated above. A polyurethane foam pad is your go-to option. And be sure to stay away from any rubber pad.

Is Carpet Flooring the Option for Your Basement?

WeServe kid and mother playing on the carpet floor

To be able to answer this question, there are different aspects you have to think about. First, how do you want to use the space? Are you going to use it only for storage or are you going to actually use it? Do you have any pets or children? And the most important question is your basement prone to flooding or moisture? These are necessary questions you need to ask yourself before making your choice.

If you are looking to make your basement a movie room for your family to enjoy, then carpet is the way to go. But if it’s primarily going to be used as a storage room, then you shouldn’t invest in carpet flooring. And if you are still confused about what you should do, then contact a flooring professional before making any decisions. They will give you the best option for your house while taking into consideration your lifestyle. 

Also, if your basement isn’t waterproofed and is prone to flooding, then nothing will work for you. No matter what flooring you have in this case, it will get ruined. The best option you have is to add an outdoor rug. It will give you the warmth you are seeking for and it can be easily thrown away if anything happens to it.

Carpet Flooring Conclusion

Carpet flooring is a great option for a lot of homes. But if you still can’t decide if this is the right choice for your home and this article might have helped you to consider this type of flooring but you are still afraid to make the wrong decision, then request a flooring specialist before finalizing any plans.

New Year, New Bathroom

Looking after a home is similar to looking after one’s health; just like you do regular medical checks, your home requires you to perform regular checks on its plumbing system, exteriors, electric wiring, heating and cooling systems, insulations, appliances and more.  If we are to think about one specific room in your home which needs the most intensive care and maintenance that would definitely be your bathroom. 

A well-maintained bathroom is a functional one. A well-designed bathroom is an aesthetically pleasing one. You don’t have to carry out full-on innovations from scratch to ensure that your bathroom provides you with a welcoming look and feel; you can easily upgrade to a nicer looking and a better functioning bathroom by requesting professionals who will ensure that all design aspects come together nicely to give you the bathroom experience you desire.

Plumber for a New Bathroom

Don’t bother thinking about how a bathroom looks like before making sure that it is performing smoothly and properly. Hire a plumber to look into any leaky faucets, clogged drains, or blocked toilets. The plumber will tackle major plumbing issues as well as minor ones that can cause you future headache in case you don’t address them properly. 

Flooring Professional

Don’t we all love a nice looking floor? We usually base our choice of flooring mainly on how nice it looks and how well it goes with the interior décor. But one aspect that we should stress one is how much exposure to water and humidity does the flooring have in a particular room; one can’t deny the wet nature of the bathroom in comparison to other room in the house. 

Having said that, when choosing your bathroom floor, consult with a professional who will advise you on the most water-resistant and durable flooring type, all while ensuring the overall style and cost aspects.  

As a quick advice, natural stone and vinyl are good options for your bathroom floor that are also budget friendly. 

Handyman Services

Bathroom are not just about doing work to your plumbing systems, drains and pipes; sometimes there are jobs that need to be done and fall out of the scope of plumbers such as doing caulking work, installing shelves and racks, and repairing fixtures Although, you might be able to do such tasks all by yourself, you might choose to hire a handyman who is more experienced and is better acquainted than you are in handling them.

When thinking about painting the bathroom, don’t limit yourself to thinking it is just about painting the wall. Bathroom walls, cabinets, vanity and shelves could all use to be painted professionally once in a while. Mixing and matching colors every now and then will give your bathroom a new look and feel that will accordingly make you feel more refreshed. 

As a general advice, opt for whitish and bluish wall paint in order to give a spacious and clean look to your bathroom. Add a splash of pop color to your vanity and closet to personalize the interior. 

Having said that, when talking to a painter about your bathroom paint, don’t limit your conversation to paint colors; explore the different materials that can be utilized as some colors are more water-resistant and are better option to avoid the formulation of mold that is caused by the bathroom’s humid environment. 


Once you are done with the décor and the tough work, it is time to have your bathroom sparkling clean and surfaces super shiny. Regularly hiring a housekeeper will ensure that your bathroom is fresh looking and nicely smelling all day every day. That’s the last and most important touch to make sure your bathroom has the look, feel and experience you desire.
