To spot a problem, you need to know what you’re looking for. Do a little research to find where common household problems are likely to occur. For the most part, you’ll be looking at plumbing and electrical faults. Familiarize yourself with the plumbing fixtures and fuse box in your home. Make sure you know how they look when they’re functioning. That way, you’ll recognize a problem when it happens. Once you know where to look, make sure to do so at least once a week to be sure!
