If you love your home, you need to perform timely routine maintenance and repair. Fixers take great pride in their understanding of the complications and quirks of their home and how to keep it all working. They collect tools and manuals: a stud finder, a soldering gun, a toilet snake.
If you are always too busy with family or job to learn and perform routine maintenance, you will need to find a reliable handyman. But if you want to do-it-yourself, there is always the Font of All Fixer Knowledge, YouTube. It can teach you how to repair a garbage disposal, rewire lamps or fix the stopper/floating-ball mechanism on the toilet.
There is no room for hate in household maintenance, only room for improvement.
