Your one-stop-shop for everything home maintenance.
Nothing says friendship like someone asking you to help them move house. You spend a few backbreaking hours helping them lug “essential” items like their collection of vintage KISS posters, they save a pile of cash by not hiring a moving company, and you get paid in pizza and beer, somehow making the whole thing “worthwhile.”
Spring is finally on the horizon, and if you’re like us, you’re ready to clear the cobwebs out of your home and get it prepared for more sunshine and longer days. But a major spring clean can be a big undertaking, no matter the size of your home. Preparing to deep clean your home as the weather warms up? Here’s a short guide to starting your spring cleaning—and what types of services you can outsource so you can get out and enjoy the weather instead of being stuck inside cleaning all day.
Remember all the great plans you had to fix up your house when you first moved in? Did you spend hours poring over paint decks to choose the perfect shade of green for the living room? Weren't you going to hang your family photos in a beautiful display for everyone to enjoy? How much money were you going to save by installing your own window treatments?
We spend a lot of time thinking up ways we can show our loyal users just how important to us they are – but we have to admit, we’re even prouder than usual of our new monthly raffle for Puls+ members.
Remember the amazing feeling you had when you first purchased your home? You finally had something to call your own with no more landlord restrictions or rent payment with nothing to show for it at the end of each month.
We’re always searching for new ways to make our homes work better for our daily lives. Whether it’s countertop materials that are a breeze to clean, a robot vacuum that handles daily messes, or a refrigerator that will make you coffee first thing in the morning (and play music from all your Spotify playlists), there are so many items that can make our lives at home easier—and revamp our routines.
It’s playoff season, and as the biggest sporting event of the year approaches, pro football fans watch with baited breath to find out who will be contending for the Lombardi Trophy. Of course, true fans want to watch the playoffs – and Super Bowl, of course – with tip-top picture and sound. It should come as no surprise, then, that TV sales skyrocket ahead of the big game. And while the sales are big, the competition to get the best TV to watch the Super Bowl on is fierce.
Today's home appliances are great time-savers and include high-tech features that also can save you money. Did you know that using a dishwasher is more energy efficient that washing your dishes by hand? Using an Energy Star-certified machine can actually save you close to 5,000 gallons of water a year and reduce your annual electric bills by $40.
There’s something about the new year that makes you want to get a fresh start—and what better way to get your home fresh than by investing in a state-of-the-art clothes dryer? Whether your old one has bit the dust or you simply want to take advantage of all the new technology in these machines, purchasing a new clothes dryer is the perfect way to start out 2020.

Whether you have every room of your home dedicated to a different Christmas tree or you put up a wreath and call it a day, it’s nice to infuse a little holiday magic into your home this time of year. The only problem? Once the season is over, it can be difficult to find space to store all of your ornaments, wreaths, and trees—especially if you’ve hit those after-holiday sales.
Holiday lights look great and can go a long way towards warming up a cold winter evening. But if the number of homes still sporting unlit displays well into February are any indication, hanging Christmas lights (and taking them down!) is more time-consuming than it looks. If you want to get yourself a little gift this holiday season, you may consider having a professional install Christmas lights for you. It can cost nominally more than hanging them yourself, but then you don’t have to spend hours standing on a ladder in the freezing cold, either. Whichever way you choose to go, we make it easier than ever to install Christmas lights with our professional pricing and DIY installation guide, after the jump.
Cleaning out your gutters is one of the most dreaded tasks of the fall, but it’s also one of the most crucial to get done. Though it may not seem like a huge deal to skip cleaning them out, failing to clean your gutters could cause a clog. And because your rain gutters are designed to move the flow of water away from your home, this could potentially cause damage to the roof, the walls, and even the foundation.
It’s that time of year again. You’d be surprised just how many great TV deals are going on this Black Friday, and, of course, when you get that brand new TV set, you’re going to want to mount it on the wall.
Just like the inside of your home needs a good routine cleaning, the outside of your home can use an occasional rinse off to get rid of the dust, dirt, and algae that can build up throughout the changing seasons and harsh weather. The best way to eliminate all of this grime is to spend an afternoon using a pressure washer, which can get even the dirtiest patios, siding, and driveways sparkling clean.
