Here is a list of things you can get from me FREE anytime. Just ask.
Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors. If a smoke alarm or CO detector isn't working or is missing, contact me, and I will replace it. Do not try to open up smoke alarms to change the batteries. Smoke alarms now have sealed battery compartments and cannot be opened.
Fire Extinguisher. Every kitchen should have an ABC (dry chemical) fire extinguisher with a visible pressure gauge. I put them in all my rental units, usually under the kitchen sink. If your fire extinguisher is missing or if the pressure is low, see me and get a replacement. You can pick up a new one in my chocolate room. All fire extinguishers lose pressure over time. Check the pointer on the pressure gauge. See the picture below. If the pointer is in the red zone, it is time to replace your fire extinguisher. A fire extinguisher with little or no pressure is useless. And remember, every year, 1 out of 8 homes in the U.S. has a kitchen cooking fire. Do you know where your fire extinguisher is? Is it someplace where you could get to it in an emergency?
Kitchen fires are the most common of all home emergencies. Every year, 1 out of every 8 homes in the U.S. has a kitchen cooking fire. Fire is the most dangerous of all home emergencies because fire makes people panic and do stupid things that make the situation worse.
Appliance Fire. If a toaster or other electrical appliance is on fire, unplug the appliance and then smother the fire with an ABC fire extinguisher. Then, toss out the toaster and get a new one. Never reuse an electrical appliance that was ever on fire.
Stovetop Fire. If its a stovetop fire, turn off the burner and smother the flames or just put a lid on the pan. Never try to put out a grease fire with water. It can splash the burning grease around the room and set you on fire. Never carry a burning pan outside! It can set your whole house on fire if flaming grease spills as you are carrying the pan.
Oven Fire. If its an oven fire, don't open the door. Just turn off the heat. If you leave the oven door closed, the fire will run out of oxygen and go out by itself.
Boxed tool set. Includes a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, pliers, etc.
Picture hanger hooks. They are more secure & stronger than nails.
Gardening tools. I have rakes, garden hoses, nozzles, pruners, and leather gloves.
Doormats. With non-skid backing.
Rent-paying envelopes. With my name and address printed on them.
New shower curtains. Replace stained or damaged shower curtains.
New Venetian blinds. to replace damaged blinds.
Rugs for any bedroom or living room with a wood floor.
Scrubbing Bubbles. My favorite bath and kitchen cleaner! I noticed that house cleaners use this product a lot. Once you try it, you will see why.
Replacement LED Light Bulbs. LED bulbs use 90% less electricity than regular incandescent light bulbs.
