Noise Reduction Tips For The Inside Of Your Home

There’s also several things that you can do inside of your home to make certain rooms less loud and noisy. Below you’ll find a few really great tips for accomplishing this.

Floors – If you have squeaky, creaking, or popping floors, then you might have a few loose boards that need repairing. If you have a crawl space or basement, you might want to inspect these areas of the floors and apply braces, shims, extra nails, and more to fix the problem. You can also remove sections of carpet and padding to reveal the subfloor if you need to fix it from above by adding screws.

For hardwood or tile floors, add soft and fluffy area rugs to reduce the click-clack of walking around. This provides sound insulation. You’ll be amazed at how quieter the room is when you’re walking on the rugs compared to the hardwood floors or tile.

Furniture Arrangements – Rearrange your furniture so that you’re receiving less noise from other rooms. In your bedroom, move the bed to the quietest wall or window. If your bedroom windows face the street outside, then avoid that location.

Sound Absorbing Panels – Did you know that you can even buy decorative sound absorbing panels for your home? There’s lots of options online. This is a creative way to to reduce noise pollution in your home. Also, check out sound absorbing paint as well.

Tips For A Quieter Home

Windows and Doors

If you’re trying to prevent noise from the outside of your home from getting inside, then be sure to inspect all the windows and door in your home. Gaps between the windows and sill can let in drafts and noise pollution. You can buy gap filling sealant at places like Lowes fairly inexpensively. You might also want to replace some of the windows in your home with ones with thicker glass or ones that are sound proof.

You can also invest in noise dampening window treatments. There’s lots of different options for noise cancelling curtains and blinds on today’s market.

If your doors are too thin, not fitted properly, or broken, then sound pollution will also enter the home. Take a look at all of the entry way doors and make any adjustments as needed. If you’re going to replace your doors with more quieter options, then make sure they have a Sound Transmission Class rating that meets your needs. Doors with higher STC numbers offer better noise reduction and more comfort.

Want a home that’s less noisy? Follow these tips!

The world is a noisy place! When we get back to our home, it’s natural to want a little peace and quiet. It can go a long ways in making for a happier place to live. If your home is always making lots of noise, then that’s just going to annoy everyone. Don’t worry! There’s a few things that you can do to quiet everything down.

Over the next few posts we’re going to fill you in on these secrets. This way, you’re home sounds more like a library than an active construction zone. If you’re searching for affordable Indio CA garage door repair or service, be sure to call Hanson Overhead. You’ll appreciate our low prices and customer service! We’re Riverside County’s best choice for garage doors.

What To Do For A Less Noisy Home

If you want a quieter home then you need to start by taking care of the obvious noise makers first. If your kids are being too loud, ask them nicely to speak and laugh in softer voices. If their iPads or phones are too loud, ask them to wear headphones. If the television sets or radios in the other room are blaring, cut the volume down.

If you live in an older home, you might have a few squeaky and creaking doors. This is easily fixed by simply using some lubricant on all the hinges. WD-40 is my go-to product for these small projects. You can find it all major retailers that has a home and garden section.

Now what about all those noisy appliances? Well, you can always upgrade if you have the money to spend. Typically, high-end dishwashers and refrigerators are a lot more quieter. Even though they cost a bit more, you’ll see a significant difference in sound levels. I have a Bosch dishwasher and sometimes I get up and check it 2 or 3 times to make sure it is running because it’s so quiet.

You might want to even get your HVAC serviced and tuned up. If you’ve not had this done in a while, there could some buildup that’s making it noisy. If your HVAC is banging and making really loud noises, then you should definitely not use it and have it looked at by a professional.

Want to read about a few more tips that will increase your peace and quiet? Check out the next part in this series. We’ll be focusing more on things to do in your home to make the sound levels more comfortable. Garage doors need repairing? Looking to schedule garage door service?

Even More Palm Springs Home Maintenance Tips

If you live in Southern California, then you know that it’s going to start getting really hot pretty quickly. We’ve even seen some 90 plus degree weather already. At our Palm Springs CA garage door service company, we’re also getting more and more repair calls. When you have some extreme temperature changes, then the springs and other parts of the system can break prematurely.

Even though you cannot keep everything from breaking, there are a few maintenance tips that will help prolong the lifespan of all your home’s systems. We’ve been talking about them in our blog lately. In our last post, we talked about inspecting your roof, windows, doors, and more. In part one of this series, we discussed your downspouts, gutters, and inspecting for bug or rodent damage.

Today we’re going to touch on a few more basic maintenance tips that you should be aware of. If you need a free quote on a repair or new installation, call Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service. You’ll love our affordable Palm Springs CA garage door service, repair, and installation packages.

Even More Palm Springs Home Maintenance Tips

Dry Heat Damage

Living in the Palm Springs area has many advantages and the dry heat is one of them. The lower heat index is what makes the high summer temperatures bearable. However, that same dry heat can damage your home over time. This is because the dry air inside of your home will pull moisture from every available source. This includes the floors, walls, and other sources. As the weather gets hotter, add some humidity to the inside of your home. Let dishes and clothes air dry, get some potted plants or a water feature, put a bowl of water in the window, and more.

Garage Door Upkeep

Make sure you’re checking out your garage door system at least twice a year. Make sure all of the parts that need lubrication have not dried out. Add garage door grease as needed.

HVAC

Before it gets too hot, get your HVAC serviced. The local service reps will get really busy when the summer months hit. Plus, getting a tune up now will save you from sleepless night in the future.

Every Homeowner Should Know These Maintenance Tips

If you’re a homeowner, then it’s really important for you to have some basic maintenance and upkeep knowledge, including Cathedral City CA garage door repair. If you’re home is only a few years old, then you’ll want to keep it looking that way. If your home is a few decades old, you’ll want to be sure you’re following a regular maintenance schedule.

Preventative maintenance is just the way to go if you want to avoid future costly repairs. It will also expand the lifespan of all of your home’s systems. You see, the weather and desert elements can wear down the outside and inside of your home.

Here’s a few simple things to get you started. If you’re searching for the most trusted Cathedral City CA garage door repair and service company, call Hanson. You’ll love our affordable prices and friendly customer service.

Every Homeowner Should Know These Maintenance Tips

Downspouts and Gutters

Make sure you’re going around the outside of your home to check your gutters and downspouts. Remove any debris blocking them so that they’re draining correctly and that the runoff water is moving away from the home. Standing water in the gutters by the roof or around the foundation can cause leaks and other types of damage.

Insects, Rodents, and Other Pests

Termites, carpenter ants, other insects, and even rodents and pests are a real pain to deal with. That’s why you should check your home thoroughly at least once a year. The biggest thing for termites is to make sure none of the home’s wooden parts are directly touching the soil. It’s also a good idea to keep bushes and trees trimmed away from the foundation.

Also check for holes and other entry ways into your home that rodents and other pests can exploit. Secure them as needed.

This is only the beginning and we’ve got a few more points that we’re going to want to touch on. Check out part two of this post by clicking here.

Fixing Small Dents In Your Garage Door

Welcome back folks. Today we are going to be adding to your Palm Springs garage door repair knowledge. That’s right, we’ll be discussing how to fix the small dents in your garage door.

If you read our last post on backing into your garage door, we talked about dented panels and a few of the other things that can go wrong when accidents like this happen. That’s why we feel that it’s best to let you guys in on a few industry secrets.

Below you’ll find the steps on how to fix smaller dents in your doors without the help of a professional. However, if you’re in need of the best Palm Springs garage door repair, make the call to Hanson Overhead. You’ll love our friendly service and unbeatable prices.

Fixing Small Dents In Garage Doors

It’s really not as hard as you think. You’ll need a can of compressed air, a cigarette lighter, some heavy duty foil, soap, water, a rag, and a bucket. Here’s how you get started.

First, get a bucket and mix some mild liquid soap with water. With a rag or a soft-bristled brush, wash and clean the area with the dents. Let it dry out completely before moving forward.

Now, cover the dented area with heavy duty foil. Be sure the foil extends out past the dent. Carefully heat the dented area with a cigarette lighter for at least one minute. Move the flame in a consistent motion to ensure the entire area has been heated up.

Next you’ll want to get your can of compressed air. Hold it upside down to release the carbon dioxide and spray the dented area that you heated. This extreme temperature change will pop the dent out. You might need to try this a few times for larger dents.

What Happens When You Back Into Your Garage Door?

We all know that accidents happen. It’s just part of life. It’s a big pain when accidents happen to your garage door. One of the most common accident calls we get is with regards to backing into a garage door. Homeowners are frantic, not knowing what to do next.

So, what happens when you back into your garage door? Keep reading to find out. If you need affordable Indio CA garage door repair or installation, call Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service. You’ll love our low prices and great customer service! We’re Riverside County’s first choice for new garage doors.

Backing Into Your Garage Door – What to Do

After your garage door gets backed into, the first thing you’ll need to do is assess the damage. It it’s a wooden door, then you’ll probably have some major repair work that will need to be done by a professional. If your door is made from steel or aluminum, then know that minor dents can usually be fixed by the homeowner.

If your door suffers from a major dent, then it should be looked at by a professional. In most cases with major damage, the entire panel will have to be replaced.

Unfortunately, if your garage door is more than 5 years old you might have to replace the entire door. The reason being is that door will probably be discontinued by the manufacturer, so finding a matching panel will be impossible. You can still replace the panel, but it will not match the rest of the door. Mismatched panels will lower the resale value of your home.

Do not operate a damaged door. If there is a dented panel, then using the opener can create even more damage. This could really increase your repair bill.

If you’re curious about how you can fix small dents at home, be sure to come back soon. Our next blog post will be covering these directions.

Spring Cleaning Garage Doors, continued

It’s that time of the year to start the process known throughout the land as “Spring Cleaning.” For most, this means cleaning and organizing the inside of your home. However, if you’ve been following along then you know that we’re talking about getting the outside of your home ready for warmer weather.

We’re specifically talking about spring cleaning your Palm Springs garage door. In our last post, which you can find by clicking here, we talked about the importance of cleaning your garage door, and how easy it is to do. In fact, it’s the perfect chore for any teenagers you have around your home – wink, wink!

Today we’re breaking down the cleaning process. Below you will find a step-by-step guide which will make this task even easier. If you need Palm Springs garage door repair, service, or even a new door installation, please call Hanson Overhead today! You’ll love our extremely low prices and unbeatable customer service.

How to Spring Clean Your Palm Springs Garage Door

As we mentioned in our last post, to clean your door you do not have to have a lot of extra or specialty equipment. Here’s what you’re going to need. Most of these things are probably already in your garage.

  • Dish soap
  • Wash rag or soft bristled brush
  • Bucket for filling with water
  • A water hose for rinsing off the door

First step, take your bucket and add some dishwashing soap, then fill with water. Mix it together so it’s good and soapy with lots of suds. Now take your water hose and give the exterior of the garage door a good and proper rinsing. This will remove the top layer of dirt and grime.

Next, take your rag or brush and dip it into the soapy water in your bucket. We suggest starting on either the top left or right side and working your way across first, then down. This will make the dirty water and debris move down onto the parts of the door that are still dirty. This technique will keep you from having to wash the same sections twice, as well.

Wait and rinse the garage door after you’ve finished scrubbing its entire surface. Be sure to rinse all of the leftover soap off. Otherwise it will affect the finish and could prematurely ruin the paint.

And that’s it, easy job completed until the next time. If you need garage door service, repair, or have questions about new door installation this spring or in 2017, be sure to call Hanson Overhead today.
